Hi;getting wood out of a log is a lot of work! yes it is wood just sitting there in the log but that doesn’t exactly help for making tables or chairs. so an update:I spent a couple of days making new saw horses to replace the ones that collapsed: here is an old collapsed one and my helper and here are the new ones: I repaired the broken ones back in 1985. they lasted this long. I figure that these new ones will go to my helper in time. and new legs for my hacking stock I m...
Why is it that when I see a tree being cut down, and I stop for a piece or two or three to turn on the lathe, when I get into a really nice, drier, figured interesting piece, I only grabbed one chunk, and when its wet as can be, boring, stinky, and hard to make viable, I have taken a half truckload?
After glueing up the table top, I began making the frames for the sides. I cut four panels, and eight rails and stiles. I took the time to use my hollow chisel mortiser to mortise all the stiles and I made tenons on the rails with my tenoning jig. This went quite well and everything fit nicely. I decided to practise a haunched tenon on the rails although this part will never be seen, what better time to try something new! Two of the panels will be set into two of the frames but the oth...
By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) View the original article here. In the above video you’ll see the amazing 17th Century English timber frame farmhouse that I visited recently. I was absolutely taken back by this immaculately reconstructed farmhouse and it’s gorgeous reproduction furniture from the 1600′s. So, of course, I had to share it with y’all! The farm was moved from England to the Frontier Culture Museum in historical Staunton, Virginia (thank yo...
This is a blog on creating this project. After making my Shop stool I have gotten a lot of interest and questions like “can you make me one as well?” and “is it possible to make it from a light wood?” Inspired from several people here that talk about making money on their woodwork I thought it would be usefull to make another stool experimenting with methods to potentially make it more production friendly. Other than that i set up 3 goals:- It should be made from...

The annual memorial day weekend trip took a last minute detour as some wildfires kept us from our scheduled camping trip, but instead we went to visit my best friends Grandma up in Lucerne, Lake County, California. The surrounding hills are littered with various oak trees such as blue oak, internal live oak, valley oak, california scrub oak and several other oak species. One afternoon i went galavanting up into the hills with my bow saw and hand axe to quickly come upon a huge fallen oa...
I built this some time ago and I want to refinish it for my wife. I am almost done and would like to try a new technique that will develop into another skill I hope. Supplies were purchased from local Orange as whiteboard and I stained it an Oak color and couple coats of poly. Moving it in the house and really want it to stand out for the miss’s liking…........ Any suggestions that will help a new comer out? Thanks in advance
Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening.

Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...
