Fixing Up a Couple Woodworking Chisels

02-03-2018 12:34 PM by wrenchhead | 0 comments »

I don’t usually get lucky at yard sales and flea markets when it comes to finding old woodworking tools but I recently came across a couple chisels and a gouge that needed some handles and some time at the sharpening station.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2gAuP58ixbg

Old Danish hobby workbench - croissants, espresso and beer...

11-14-2016 12:21 AM by mafe | 28 comments »

Old Danish hobby workbenchcroissants, espresso and beer… No into needed, so let’s jump right into the story: This blog starts in my small kitchen back home. So it could be about croissants and espresso or a few of my handmade knifes… Or of friends like Flemming that show up and bring joy in my life. I’ll give you a clue, if you did not read the headline… My friend Flemming left, so we will talk about the stranger in the kitchen…Yes I guess...

Refinishing a Dresser

06-13-2016 10:53 PM by ShaunMeighan | 2 comments »

View on YouTube Hello everyone! As I have declared myself the designated woodworker in my household, I am getting all sorts of home improvement jobs. Today, my parents asked me to refinish the tops of their bedside dressers. I thought I would talk through what I do to refinish things, and maybe you guys could learn something and/or offer some tips! While the main body of the dressers is generally alright, the top surfaces are in rough shape. Glasses of water and cups of coffee...

Old Building Blocks

09-23-2015 12:22 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Our church’s preschool threw out some old building blocks. Naturally I took them because they are wood. I’m gathering ideas in my head about what sort of things I can make with them. They’re not pine, but what are they? Meh, not really important.

1953 Delta Milwaukee 14" Band Saw Restoration #1: Introduction

08-28-2015 05:51 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I should preface this blog with a note about myself. I recently shed most of my power tools in favor of old hand tools, like Stanley Planes, Disston saws, and old Braces/Bits and eggbeater drills. This was around December of 2014 (about 9 months ago as of this writing). The two power tools I decided to keep in the shop were a band saw and a drill press. Problem was, I didn’t own a band saw (at least not a decent one). So the search began. I hemmed and hawed about it, researched, a...

Other Tools #1: Refreshed Old Spoke-shave

03-13-2015 11:52 PM by Starfire16 | 9 comments »

Picked up this old Spoke shave for a couple dollars, just because I like spoke shaves. Did not think it would be worth anything or really all that good of a spokes shave. But for a couple bucks it was worth it to me for the “practice” of cleaning it up. Condition it was in when I got it. The soul toke about 4 hours of work just to get it back to flat. The only markings I was able to find anywhere on it was “JK” lightly stamped on the top and bottom of each han...

One More Really Old Table Saw

12-22-2014 02:10 AM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

These are the two photos I was trying to find in the photos I mentioned in my previous post. I could have saved these for safety week. As I said these photos were usually taken for a reason. You can see in the lower photo that the two men are doing something that looks inherently dangerous, probably demonstrating what happened. The guy on the right is missing his ring finger!

Really Old Table Saw Ca. 1910

12-21-2014 06:59 PM by Dave Rutan | 5 comments »

One of my other hobbies is local railroad history. During the research for my book I was given access to thousands of images from glass plate negatives. Most of these photos were taken for a reason other than inventory of the railroad, usually because of a mishap. Once in a while I have to go back and refer to them. I saw these two and thought others might appreciate seeing an old tool. Railroads typically had workshops for maintenance of equipment, buildings, etc. I don’t know wh...
