947 days ago by Paul Sellers | 2 comments »

Hi, Here is part four. It is a bit longer than the other sections despite the fact that I have cut it down quite a bit. I hope it will prove a useful tutorial in setting hinges. Enjoy, Paul Sellers

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #3: A look under her skirt....

845 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I got your attention with that title, so here’s the picture….. I began to cut the hole for the vise two nights ago, last night I actually got it mounted. I had to use 3 layers of plywood to get the clearance I needed to mount it. (I’ll try and get a picture of that when I’m under the bench again. I’m not picking it up again if I can help it.) I had my 10 year old nephew help me mount it and here are the results… I have one coat of BLO ...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #4: Into the beyond...

830 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 11 comments »

I’ve been “done” with this project for nearly two weeks at this point, but I feel I should close this out. Along with the bench, I felt the need to showcase some of my favorite tools. I plan to update this blog with some of the uses for the gap that I can come up with…

The old time woodshop journals #48: Tool pickin', cleaning and using!

99 days ago by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

For the many of you out there that are always on the hunt for great hand tool buys at a Flea Market this one is for you. I would say this is also for the beginner or curious onlookers that may want to start using hand tools but may feel overwhelmed by the catalog prices of some of the leading brands that are making outstanding top quality tools. I know for myself at times I have to take a deep breath after drooling over a Lie Nielson catalog and seeing a hand plane upwards of 200-300 plus ...

My Creative Workspace #1: Creating my creative work space

1162 days ago by Paul Sellers | 2 comments »

Ever thought about where you work? I mean, the space you occupy is your place of occupation and it’s more important then that you customise it to suit your personal needs. Even shared space necessitates that you create a working environment within the greater whole: a place of functionality if you will, that allows the placement of all things so that the positioning affords optimal accessibility.This is my personal work area at Penrhyn Castle workshop where we have the woodworking cours...

Heavily modified Paul Sellers workbench #5: Ch Changes, turn and face the VISE

181 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 10 comments »

Soooo, it’s been a while. There’s been a lot going on and I haven’t found a lot of time for woodworking. I’ve worked on a few small things here and there, but nothing major. I’ve recently gotten back into woodcarving and have been enjoying dreaming up projects and learning new techniques. I got out to the shop one day a couple months back and decided I wanted to shorten my bench and put the vise closer to the end. At first I tried to do it with a skill saw...

Exercises in Artisanship #31: The Woodrights Galoot library Part 2

637 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...

Wood Types and Properties #2: Know your wood #2-Beech

1167 days ago by Paul Sellers | 3 comments »

Beech trees grow abundantly throughout the temperate zones of Europe, Asia and North America. The wood is of very even denseness throughout the grain because of its relatively small pores evenly distributed through both the early and late growth of each growth cycle (annual ring). My first mallet was made from beech and most mallets for three hundred years would have come from the beech tree. Though that is the case, and beech is a hard wood, I find beech just a little too soft for making...
