Hernia repair recovery #2: Ok Post number three in this series and I've finally got something to say

09-04-2013 06:40 PM by mungletroll | 0 comments »

I’ve now decided on what my next project is. A small pendant in Boxwood. It will, of course by a heart but it is based on a more complex heart design than just the basic one. This is a design that I have used before but never published and I don’t remember seeing anyone else using it but of course someone will see this and put me right on that. So the design is based upon two stylised heads, suggested as being male and female, and the way they come together forms a heart, we...

Feeling sore and creative - not a good combination

08-30-2013 09:14 AM by mungletroll | 4 comments »

Well, yesterday I was in hospital for a triple hernia repair, I’m not sure how I managed that but that’s life I suppose. Anyway, here I am with time on my hands and the urge to create something but sore as hell, not allowed to lift anything heavier than a cup of tea and unable to walk long distances. So what do I do about this. Well, I’ve caught up on posting some past projects on here and I thought maybe I should start something new and document progress. I’...

Got some scrap wood and a railroad spike? Make a drawknife....

06-04-2013 05:05 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Drawknives. They can be expensive or cheap. They are used by green woodworkers and chairmakers (for the spindles). You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make your own drawknife. Also view a different way of placing handles on your homemade tools tangs. It must be noted that I do not condone taking railroad spikes off of tracks. It is illegal and you can get in serious trouble for theft and/or killed by a big freaking ...

Making a Folding/Pocket Knife #1: Layout, stock removal, and mechanisms

03-17-2013 07:26 AM by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

(This is mostly metalworking, though it does use wooden jigs and scales eventually) After building a cheap folding knife kit from Woodcraft (which was just making some scales, bolting things together, and sanding/finishing), I became interested in making one myself from scratch. I talked to a coworker who makes knifes and did some internet research before placing an order for lots of knife stuff from Jantz supply: This includes a flat bar of O1 tool steel for the blade and mechanis...

The old time woodshop journals #20: From maple shaves to maul

08-08-2012 07:35 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

I decided to turn the shop inside out recently moving some things about and bringing out my shavehorse with a maple branch in hand. I have been yearning to get back on this horse needing to get some draw knife work in and let the shaves cover me with a wisdom that only nature hides inside itself. Handtool woodworking has some mysterious outlet of stress and satisfaction I gather only us newave hobbiest’s need to feed our efforts of taming its addicting applications. The drawing of th...

I’ve been wanting to build a shave horse for a while now and with the purchase of a draw knife, a shave horse is now needed. I used an old oak pallet and a single tree. Go check it out.

Jointer cutter head lock mod #1: Modify cutter head so it can be locked when adjusting knives

05-21-2012 04:53 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Well I’ve had this old jointer for a little over a year now and have had to pull the knives for sharpening a couple of times already because of damaged edges. I have to be more careful I guess. I’ve read all about how to adjust the knives, it’s really pretty simple concept but it’s not that easy sometimes to get the damn things even from one end to the other, and all three knives the same. The main problems I’ve identified are these: Moving a dial indicator ar...

A Wonderful Gift from a Great Friend

10-17-2011 03:31 PM by Brit | 19 comments »

Last week when I was in Denmark, I popped in to see Mads and after a terrific meal, we spent a few hours talking tools. Time passes quickly when you’re in good company and all too soon it seems, I was on the last train back to my hotel. During the evening Mads presented me with a present – a MAFE original marking knife, which as you can see, came with a smile. Mads made the knife to use Exacto blades, so eventually after many sharpenings, I will be able to replace the blade...

Playing Around with Carving #9: Just Kicking Around today

08-14-2011 06:02 AM by WayneC | 18 comments »

I roughed out another spoon today. I was trying a different handle shape to get a feel for it. Playing with some curves. Also, I’m looking for good ways get a better finish on the spoon bowl. I tried sanding some. I need to get better at making smooth cuts to reduce the work required to finish the spoons. I am thinking of getting some curved knives. That or I need a wider/flatter bent neck gouge. I am thinking of a knife simlar to one of the curved ones from Pinewood For...
