Roubo Workbench Build #4: Slowly progressing.. discouraging?

05-23-2013 10:25 PM by Willeh | 3 comments »

Still at it.. Unfortunately I havent had much time to put into it over the past little while, but I’ve now planed and glued up the third of 4 sections of the top, and squared up the first 2 sections on the jointer ready to glue together. Found that I lost too much meat out of the width of the top and had to add in two extra boards to get back up over 20 inches wide… Think i’ve decided on the wagon vice.. I just love the way they look and function and I think it’l...

A Guitar for Daniel #1: Okay, you finished high school, now the learning starts...

12-10-2012 06:29 PM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

One of Charlene’s friends from a college years ago has two kids who’ve recently graduated from high school. The elder dived into travelling around Europe and heading off to college on the other coast and generally diving into life. The younger, Daniel, is an Eagle Scout, but post high-school has been casting around trying to figure out what he wants to do. He’s been feeling stuck in a small town up in the Sierra foothills, and we’ve dragged him down to closer to the co...

Tool Restores #4: Plane Cap Screw Screwdriver

06-10-2015 04:29 AM by TrBlu | 3 comments »

This is not exactly a restore. This is really more of a tool build. This is the process I followed to make my plane iron cap screw screwdrivers. The blog is a little picture heavy. Here is a link to my blog post on my wordpress blog site. https://timharvey1.wordpress.com/2015/06/09/shop-blog-cap-screw-screwdriver/ Feel free to add any comments, suggestions or questions. Thank you for visiting my shop blog.

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #8: Drawer Construction

09-21-2014 09:49 PM by MT_Stringer | 3 comments »

We have had rain for several days as the remnants of the hurricane that hit the Baja has drifted over Texas and onto our heads! So I couldn’t go to the lumber yard. Instead, I went through my lumber rack and dug up all of the maple I could find and a few pieces of poplar. I managed to mill enough for the six top drawers. These drawers have 4 inch sides so there were a few pieces that got glued together and then milled. The drawer fronts have half blind dovetails. The rear of e...

Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

11-02-2010 09:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Hickory Harvest!

09-24-2013 12:29 PM by RaggedKerf | 3 comments »

I love Autumn. Okay, so, this post isn’t technically about woodworking, though it does involve some tools… In my yard I’ve got a decent size shagbark hickory tree, along with about 5 others that have spread from this “mother tree”. Mixed in this area are a couple oaks, box elders and a smattering of chokecherries. I have had the kids out with me the last few days, and they had a blast picking up the nuts from the big hickory tree, blown out in some pret...

Maple and Cherry Box #9: What I Learned and Wrapping Everything Up

01-22-2017 07:42 PM by Cheapguy82 | 3 comments »

I tried a handful of new things and learned a lot, building this box. I did some things well and some not so much… Some things that went poorly were due to my lack of equipment…and PATIENCE to properly check and double check that the equipment I had to work with was set up as precisely as possible before making any final cuts. Other things went poorly because I’m inexperienced and/or a bit uncomfortable with some tools. Full disclosure – routers make me nervous. So far, I’ve been abl...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1528: Progress

04-02-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is another beautiful and sunny morning here on the bank of the Meteghan river. The air is calm and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Little by little the huge piles of snow is receding and we are able to see brownish patches of what promises to be green grass.  Spring is definitely on its way. It has been a long winter for us here in Nova Scotia. As with many other parts of the world, we seemed to have our fill of ice and snow. The past several years we have had mild winters, a...
