My first homemade rebate plane, Thanks Div

05-02-2011 06:15 PM by lilredweldingrod | 28 comments »

Well, with all the wood planes being made and refurbished, I decided to try my hand on a little rebate plane. I chose the rebate plane to do first because I am learning Mortise and Tenon joinery and some of my tenons needed tuning. My first step was to make the blade. I picked a 1 inch spade bit after checking the prices on some A2 steel. It took a lot of grinding to flatten out the shaft and grind off the shaped drill section. I had some cocobolo that I planned to use but it was just too ...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

12-06-2010 04:38 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...

Game Calls #2: Scratch Box Turkey Calls

02-28-2013 05:14 PM by ghost5 | 1 comment »

After posting a few of these neat little calls I thought some other folks might like to know how to make them. They are an easy project and another way to use some of that scrap wood. The easiest way to make a scratch box is to have a dedicated mortiser set up with a 1/2”cutter but since I don’t have one here is how I do it. If you do have one you can quickly see how to use it to accomplish what I am doing. I start with a 1 & 5/8”“x4” piece 1/2” t...

Temporary Grave Marker #2: The challenges of a commissioned work...

11-12-2007 07:54 PM by Ethan Sincox | 18 comments »

Wait a second… Is it really a commissioned work? Maybe not. I agreed to make the cross, but I decided to not charge them for it (ehhh… it isn’t something I really want to put in my Gallery of Finished Pieces, you know? It’s more like a favor than anything. Ultimately, it comes down to the fact that I would feel weird about charging a friend for this piece. Hey, when its a hobby, you can afford to do that.) In any case, I got hit square in the face with one of ...

Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

The Process of Segmented Woodturning

06-22-2010 01:11 AM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

Segmented woodturning is an interesting craft. It is one of those wood projects that requires more than just a wood lathe and some lathe tools. It helps to have woodworking equipment such as a table saw, a planer, a jointer, a mitresaw, an open stand drum sander, and a disc sander. Also when starting out you’ll need to design for your segmented woodturning project . First, decide if you want to turn a bowl, a vase, salt and peppermills, or even a lamp. Next, you’ll need to dr...

Lumber #2: Shorts, and a T

02-09-2009 06:28 PM by PurpLev | 18 comments »

I’ve got the shorts sorted out, but still don’t have a T ruler… one step at a time. So I took the table saw, shop vac, outfeed roller, and everything else that was in the way out of the garage and started organizing the stack of shorts I got. to the ordinary person passing by, I might have looked like a psycho – cleaning board by board with compressed air to clean the wood – from the wood dust on it (these all came from a manufacturing shop and were covered...

Oh For Keepsake!

10-30-2009 06:22 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 32 comments »

Its that time of year again: HOLIDAY PROJECT TIME! So this year, I decided to make a few little keepsake boxes, thanks to some advice from The Great WOODini. I also took inspiration from a box Nicole keeps on her nightstand and developed a new design that is much more practical for the average woodworker to make. The boxes feature a secret locking pin. Once removed, the lid slides off on a sliding dovetail. And as always with these holiday gift projects, you can modify them by trying diffe...
