http://youtu.be/LB-jLaQjzxA Well the journey on this project is nearing the end…
A few weeks back I was in my local Habitat for Humanity ReStore. I saw a 24” long backsaw resting among the saws. I put it back…. I have a longer and older Disston. Then on another shelf I saw the Craftsman adjustable miter box. I knew just by looking that the saw was the mate to it. The saw had a price of $5.00 on it and the miter box sticker said $12. I smiled all the way to the counter, then all the way home. Cleaning, sanding, priming, painting, scraping, flap sandin...
Just a quick update on the Christmas Box Build Off contest from A Simple Design of Ocala. In this video I talk about the prizes and categories.
Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...
I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm
In September, I started coming up with ideas for my wife’s Christmas present. The short of it is—I haven’t finished it yet. Fortunately, it was a minor part of all that I was getting/making her, so she didn’t go without this Christmas. Part of my problem is that I’m still a greenhorn and purpleheart is a jerk to work with. Tearout, checking, and pitting is something I’ve had to deal with non-stop. For the past two weeks, my shop (no heating) has been bel...
Last week at our local auction I found something that I just couldent pass up. Saws, saws and more saws!I found one disston #16, three Disston D-95, one Atkins, one Richardson Brothers #7 and several other Disstons that I dont have numbers for yet. I also got a old stanley miter box and the Disston saw that came with it. The total cost to me was 10$some of the DisstonsThe D-95sback sawRichardson Brothers #7StanleyThere are more saws than I have shown and when I get them cleaned up I may show...
I am making a raised panel bench seat that is enclosed for the bedroom. As always, storage is at a premium at our place. I’m making this bench to go along a long wall will let us sit to put on our socks and still have a storage space. In my mind it will look like this. It’s just a sketch and that’s how I usually start. The length will be 54 inches and the height 20 inches. Since it’s actually a sitting bench it will be quite squat as a chest would be much taller.. ...
Coming down the home straight with these doors. Here is a quick shot of the set up for the slot cutting on the old router table.. Finished the rebates on the panels… back 4 mm and the front 7 mm Using the Incra Fence and the Woodpecker Unilift made it easy to switch from one height to another … Moved the blade on the TS to 45 degrees and positioned the fence for the bevel cuts on the front of the panels.. A Wixey Digital Ange Guide is very useful here.. A...
