Shop stuff #122: Making a new strop.

04-18-2018 01:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I have one. But it was just thrown together from scraps to test it out. Naturally it worked well, no surprise there, I now strop more than I “sharpen”. The problem with the original one is that it is too narrow for all my plane blades. So now that I am convinced of its usefulness, it’s time to build a proper one. I gave a bit of thought on a design that would be versatile for me and then made it. The first attempt was thwarted by bugs though, so I had to start over aga...

A New Beginning

04-10-2018 03:23 PM by MtnViewWoodcraft | 5 comments »

About 8 months ago I began my new journey into woodworking. I had dabbled in the past, but last year (2017) I hit the ground running. Today I have a small, very small, but growing business. During these past few months I have expanded to woodturning, CNC, laser, and just regular woodworking. While there are a few tools that I still need, my shop is 95% stocked. Now comes the task of coming up with new projects that I can sell and that will make money. In addition to my shop & stor...

04-07-2018 10:54 PM by Diego Cassels | 2 comments »

This was an easy sketch and only took about 1/2 an hour.Knowing the wood width was important, it allowed me to be more creative with the curves. 4 cuts Top (Seat): =>40 cm long = 15,75 “ =>25 cm Deep = 9,84 “ =>4 cm width = 1,57 “ 2 Legs: =>33,5 cm long = 13,18 “ =>23 cm Deep = 9,06 “ =>3 cm width = 1,18 “ Leg support:=>37 cm long = 14,57 “ =>4 cm Deep = 1,57 “ =>3 cm width = 1,18 “

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

DIY Bat Houses

04-04-2018 02:01 PM by wrenchhead | 8 comments »

I made these bat houses over the weekend. Mosquitoes get pretty bad where I live and it is beneficial to have bats around as natural insect control. These definitely are not fine woodworking projects but they are fun, cheap and easy to make. I hope you like the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjbAb255M68

So, I was asked many times during the Octave Mandolin build if the prints were or if they would be available. They are now! https://youtu.be/b72YZaAF-WE

Shop stuff #119: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash

03-24-2018 01:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

You just have to keep trying new things. I thought I would try making a bent lamination for the first time, and, since my son in law plays guitar, a guitar stand seems to be a logical place to try. Here in part one, I prep the stock and get the bent lamination done up. It was a fairly straight forward process. I was expecting some spring back when I took it out of the clamps, but that assumption was incorrect as it held shape great. I am also trying out some new things with my videos. S...

Shop stuff #118: Easy to make sanding sticks

03-08-2018 03:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

The project I am working on would be easier with some sanding sticks, so I made some. It’s quick and easy. You can use any grit you want, or mix them, and the wood can be anything handy. You can even rip them from 2 x stock or just about anything else. I happened to find something at the dollar store that fit the bill. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #117: Hanging an axe head

02-25-2018 02:43 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Good axe handles are getting harder to find. I don’t think it is a shortage of wood or anything like that. I think the manufacturers are just caring less, and most of them are newer companies. I have had my little Swedish axe for a long time and the handle finally gave out. This is how I got a handy tool back into service. View on YouTube
