I am amazed how many projects come to me from other people.it seems every time I try to work on my stuff, I am side tracked buy a new project from someone else. I have been working hard on redoing my shop, finally I am making progress, then there was the knock on the door from my friend across the street” who buy the way is a black smith, with cool tools”. He has a project he would like to make for his wife for Christmas. As I should be working on something for my wife, but I agre...

Pie Safe #1: A beginning

12-22-2012 01:34 PM by scamp238 | 5 comments »

My daughter and I are building a pie safe. Well, my daughter is building and i am supervising. She doesn’t seem to have much fear of the tools, so that is good. I have helped her with setting up the machines and giving advice, but she basically has done it all. She is 17 years old and a senior in high school. Anyway, here are a few pictures of what we have done so far. The design is roughly what is found in the 1988 Woodsmith magazine. I am pretty pleased with the results so far. ...

Spring cleaning in Fall still no fun !!!!!!!!

09-21-2009 04:07 AM by Built2Last | 2 comments »

A couple of days ago I decided it was time to build a rack to organize my nuts, bolts, screws, washers and other fasteners. I don’t know how I got so many but man, they are everywhere. As I sort thru them I am listing them and anything else I either don’t need, use or have more than one of on ebay. So far I’ve listed over 75 items I think and still have more to go. A couple of items are either rare or expensive like a Starrett calibrated master square set (http://cgi.ebay.co...

Hand Tool Journey #27: Stanley SW #246 Miter Box Restoration #1.. What have we got here?

04-21-2014 03:47 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Just received a Sweetheart era #246 Miter Box. It is in decent working order but really needs a good cleaning to get everything moving like it should again. My original plan was to clean and be done with it but… like usual I can’t just leave well enough alone. Here is the state it arrived in.. Complete with the trip mechanism! Saw is in great shape with no obvious signs of pitting.. only the tote needs help. It also arrived with one of the 2 stop ...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

Tag Frid three legges stool #3: Tage Frid Three Legged Stool- Final Episode

09-08-2014 06:51 PM by cpine | 6 comments »

I complete the three legged stool. In this episode I glue up the seat and eventually the rest of the stool. I shape the legs, install the wedges in the mortise and tenons, sand and finish the stool. Thanks for the support and kind comments! This was a fun project and satisfying to have completed it. Best RegardsChris http://youtu.be/jhUJkumaA18

Well hello everyone. We have moved into our new home, and living alone at last.

My 21st Century Bench Revisited #1: My 21st Century Revisited

07-17-2010 08:14 PM by fineamerican | 3 comments »

My first attempt at recording my thoughts, hopes and wishes on a work bench have changed and today Ive begun to bring forth my ideas into my shop. One of the things about woodworking as you may have found out for yourself, is sometimes in order to accomplish one goal, along the way your faced with sub tasks if you will that must be completed before the main goal can be reached. For me that was a saw bench. You may wonder why I need a saw bench to build my work bench and the answer is this. My...

Day to day life #3: Twin size bed Arts and Crafts style

01-03-2012 02:41 PM by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Four days off from blogging and I’m back with a new project underway, Tom’s back to school, and ones returning to the nest. I want to close out my shop maintenance week by telling you that I accomplished just about everything I set out to do. The shop is clean and organized, blades are sharp, things that should be square are and my mind is rested. I must say that it’s something that everyone who works in a shop should try and do at least once a quarter. My last posting I was asking for...
