Tool thoughts #49: Greetings from beyond the edge of the world

290 days ago by NedB | 5 comments »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...

My First Box Attempt

534 days ago by icemanhank | 9 comments »

Hi there, I have been doing bits,n pieces of woodworking for years now and after recently finding this site was inspired by ‘Don’ to have a go at making a box. I have unashamedly been using one of his boxes as a guide because I love the look of it. I joined my local woodworkers club ‘Hawkesbury Woodcraft Co-operative’ and the guys there have been really helpful and supportive, there is also a really good array of equipment and materials to use at the club. I h...

handtool workbench #2: starting some planing

292 days ago by Tugboater78 | 7 comments »

Started planing down some of the boards for the top. They will be two ~12” wide sections with an ~ 6” gap/well board between. I am leaning towards having the center section removeable, flipped one way it will be level with the other 2 sections, flipped upside down it will sit lower. All ideas are still not set in stone except the 2 sections. One problem i foresee is my lack of good clamps, wish I had the cash for a couple cabinet masters. I may go run the BigBlueBox card up a ...

The old time woodshop journals #44: Back to the bench!

346 days ago by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Since taking such an extended time learning many aspects of carving spoons from green timber, I began to miss the other parts of working wood. I missed the use of my old Stanleys, Disstons, and Millers Falls! Yeah….I am a hand tool galoot for sure….GALOOTS UNITE!...LOL. Of course while just starting to excel at carving, understanding the grips and sculpture of spoon making, it was easy to have a worry that my other skills were getting some rust as much as the tools began too!.....

Lamps for the living room #1: Decent Start

395 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 5 comments »

I have been building some lamps for the Living room. I discovered an issue. My small miter saw used to be as accurate as anything else I could manage. I didn’t realize that the fence had warped until I started assembling. My 45 angles wer more like 45.75. It threw a wrench in things and gave me a little firewood but I recovered most of the cuts. I’m ready to move on. I was able to straigten the fence on the small saw but now I’m marking my cuts and disregardng the presets...

Upcoming projects

483 days ago by Pallirondack | 6 comments »

I have discovered a true love of building things, mostly with recovered lumber. The vast majority of my recovered lumber is in the form of recycled wooden pallets. I enjoy the challenge of designing and crafting different pieces, drawing on the available, free plans I can find online, coupled with my own modifications along the way. I am not a pro, finish carpenter so my creations are primarily rustic, outdoor patio/deck style pieces that should last a very long time if the end user takes ...

what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

1197 days ago by Dave | 2 comments »

My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...

Woodworker's Auction #2

670 days ago by natesd | 1 comment »

The end date for my Dad’s auction is a little less than a week away (June 25). Every time I look at listing on the auction sight I can’t believe how much stuff there is. I said in my first blog about this auction that “all” his tools and remaining stock of lumber was up for sale. That isn’t quite true my brother and I have kept a few tools and a stock of wood for our own use in years to come. But it’s hard to believe that what we have kept is maybe a fourth...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

1673 days ago by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...
