How to dimension lumber with handtools #5: The infamous crosscut

09-18-2018 01:30 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

Crosscutting with a hand saw can be a real challenge and burden to the hand tool woodworker. In my video link below, I provide a tutorial on how to crosscut a large piece of stock with only hand tools. The result is within a 1/16 of perfection. The Paul sellers method combined with a few tricks of the trade will provide you the “know how” to cut large stock with a cheap saw. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzMBxYcx7tQ

How to dimension lumber with handtools #4: Parallel face and edge

09-15-2018 12:20 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

After establishing the reference face and edge, I use my marking gauge to mark the board thickness using the reference face as the guide. Once I have marked all four sides, I use my jack plane, jointer plane and smoothing plane to bring down the rough surface of the board to my marking lines. Then, I repeat the step for the board width using the reference edge as the guide. Once finished the board was perfectly square. (as perfect as necessary at least). If you would like to watch my video...

Treadle Lathe #1: Part I: Introduction

08-31-2018 11:56 AM by LastingBuild | 2 comments »

I am excited to build a treadle lathe. I recently began milling some rough sawn oak to use as the frame and I have assembled the needed hardware to make a functional lathe. I am using multiple sources in this project as reference material. I have listed the reference material below.: How to build a treadle Lathe by Steve Schmeck Lathe from a Loft by Roy Underhill Treadle Lathe by Mr. Chicadee on youtube. The hardware needed for this project is: 1/2” steel Rod5/8” S...

Handtool Basics #5: Who is the KING of the Butt Joint?

01-22-2018 07:58 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Hey Guys, I did a quick little deep dive into the ins and outs of common butt joint techniques. I looked at biscuits, Mortise and Tenons (both hand cut and machine cut) Festool Domino Floating Tenons, and the Kreg Jig. I broke down how long it takes to make these joints, how consistent they come out, how easy and repeatable they are, and how strong each joint is. I break down (with lots of data) how much they cost in both money and time invested into each joint from the perspective of a...

Wood Glue Tests and Information #1: EIGHT Wood Glues TESTED with Unexpected Results

01-11-2018 08:41 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

View on YouTube I started wondering about wood glue recently and the more I thought about it, the more I thought that I should do my own set of tests. I am interested in Working Time, how well different glues will work with veneer, and how well they will work with bent laminations. I did not test for strength because Fine Woodworking did a great article on glue strength and their results were that most all glues are plenty strong enough. I also limited this to only PVA glues. I still ...

Desk Chairs #4: Curvy Chair Backs

01-01-2018 02:54 PM by EarlS | 5 comments »

I never really paid much attention to the curves and angles on our dining room chairs or wondered why, or more importantly, how they were built that way. Building these chairs has given me a new appreciation for the subtle functional details that go into designing a comfortable chair as well as one that is visually appealing. The angles were the main challenge with the legs and seat rails while the back of the chair is a confluence of curves and arches. Once again, the instructional wri...

The Quest for a Better Bench #5: Mortise and Tenon Joinery... Just writing that makes me feel like a SUPER WOODWORKER!!!

11-05-2017 12:56 AM by PlanBWoodworks | 1 comment »

DISCLAIMER!!! THis post only contains a small portion that relates to Mortise and Tenmon Joinery. It just made me feel all tingly to include that in my title. Sorry for misleading you. At the end of my last blog entry, my workbench top was in the glue up stage. I glued up the top in 4 sections that would allow me to combine 2 and BARELY be able to run them through the planer. I was shooting for a top that was 60” long and 25”wide. both 12 1/2” sections maxed out the capacity of my De...

Bed build #1: Catching up

07-16-2017 01:16 PM by Scout989 | 0 comments »

Okay, this is the first project I’m blogging, so please bear with me and drop me a line if you have suggestions for improvements. This is my second major build, and the first I plan to record at all. I am now building a California king bedframe for a couple friends of mine. I have no real idea what the style is called, but I’ve been mentally designating it “farmhouse style.” This bed is being built with poplar, as it was cheap enough that I could afford to replace ...

cypress and walnut dresser build #1: Getting started

09-28-2016 10:14 PM by Floridaboy | 1 comment »

Wanted to build a chest of drawers to replace my old broken one. So I started thinking of what u want it to look like. Came up with using floating cypress panels for the case. With flush mounted walnut drawer fronts for contrast. While I was looking for lumber I came across a live edge cherry slab about 3 inches thick and decided to incorporate it. I wanted legs that were proud of the rest of the case. The dementions were influenced by space available and what seemed right. Here’s a ...
