The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #1: FINALLY- The first episode is done! You're gonna LOVE IT!

986 days ago by StumpyNubs | 63 comments »

Maybe “LOVE” is a strong word. But I’m really excited about the final version of the show, and I think most people will feel the same way. Forget about everything we experimented with before. This is all new. It’s been over a year in development, and And I’d like to think it is a pretty unique format! Here’s how it works… The show is designed to have the feel of a single camera “reality” type show. It is meant to be a glimpse into our workshop as if you were just stopping in...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #14: Wooden Screw - Another attempt

643 days ago by Mauricio | 61 comments »

It didnt turn out well, still licking my wounds. Here is briefly what happened… Made a new jigAfter one test screw, I successfuly made one that had reasonable little chipping, I was happy with it.I actually cut the hub off a reject screw and reused it on this one. Tapped the leg Tried the screw, but it binds up after a little bit. I kept tapping the threads deeper and deeper hoping it would fit but it wasn’t the diameter of the hole, it was the thread pitch, and since the...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #8: Splayed Back Legs and Stretcher

744 days ago by Mauricio | 44 comments »

Hello Friends, I’m long overdue for an update so there are a lot of pictures. I’ve made quite a bit of progress but the ending is not so happy I’m afraid, after reassembling the parts last night I discovered an error I will have to fix. The great thing about woodworking is that almost anything is fixable, it’s just frustrating. You’ll see what I mean at the end. As usual, I’ll let the pictures do most of the explaining: Cut the shoulders on the angled te...

Bad Accidents Happen

1353 days ago by mrg | 42 comments »

The other day I found that no matter how safe you try to be accidents do happen. Case in point, jointing a piece of oak using two push blocks to run the board through, the board exploded the blocks flew away and my left hand went into the blades. I amputated the top of my ring and middle finger and part of my index finger. It could have been worse. I am on blood thinners so this posed a whole bunch of complications.So I am stressing my fellow jocks, if you are not comfortable with a ce...

How to find and harvest legal burls!

1745 days ago by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Not Just Any Box #2: It all hinges on these..

2380 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 35 comments »

I have a love affair with wooden hinges and this challenge gave me the opportunity to go one step further with them. (It started some years ago when I came across the work of the late Tim Stead – in my opinion, a genius.) Accurately drilling the hinge pin hole in such a hinge is never easy, and those I planned for this box are 9.5” long and therefore impossible to drill. The following is an attempt to show how I overcame this bit of the challenge. The first shot shows the oak blan...

Workbench Build - Splayed leg French Bench #12: The Deadman

689 days ago by Mauricio | 35 comments »

Hello LJ Buddies, Here is my most recent progress. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. I previously milled the grove on the underside of the bench. I cut a rabet 3/4” in from the front and glued on a 3/4” tenon. This was cut by hand. First had to perfect the fit. Laid out the design with a wax pencil. Bandsawed the curve then cleaned up with a spokeshave. After drilling the holes and cleaned the Jatoba with Acetone and glued on the tenon an...
