The Zen of Woodworking #2: Steps

09-26-2014 04:07 PM by BigAxe | 0 comments »

Wood working appears to have a number a number of separate and well defined steps. Each step requires its own tools and skill set. Step 1: Go into the woods, find a tree and cut it up into boards. Allow the boards to season for two or more years. I suspect many wood workers forgo this step and head directly to a lumber yard. I know of one headstone and probably there are more which reads “Killed by the fall of a tree”. I have bought some lumber from lumber yards, but now I te...

Splinters of thought #4: Adjustable Bench Hook

10-26-2015 12:27 AM by bearkatwood | 7 comments »

Adjustable Bench Hook Bench hooks are a very nice addition to a workbench. Sometimes for carving a small piece, a bench hook can be a bit too deep. Using a woodtek router bit (bit #942858I 14” shank) had for making jigs I routed two slots in a bench hook and drilled some holes for the hardware to slip in. I had thought about using a T-track inlayed in the hook for the adjustment, but I thought ...

WHICH ONE IS THE BEST

10-22-2008 01:34 AM by Dan'um Style | 26 comments »

Hey Lumberjocks I ran a test run of tiles. All finished the same way with the exception of background color.All are fired stoneware clay handpressed into a plaster mold made from one of my wood carvings. 10 backgrounds with a wash of bronze finish … see my 100 pounds of clay blog to see the brand. These are unique in that the bronze finish is patinated using “liver of sulphur” to a dark brown.. Topcoat is a matt laqcuer to lock in the patina. My question is which...

Repairing a hammer handle and refinishing a couple items

11-08-2014 05:02 AM by cpine | 0 comments »

It was one of those days where I was between projects and had several smaller things to get done. I had this older coffee table that really needed some attention nd the wife had placed it on our back porch. I guess she was tired of waiting for me to “get to it” So I refinished the top. I had an older cheap hammer that had a loose head, so I fixed that. I bought a yankee screwdriver at a garage sale and the handle was in bad shape. It is a wood handle and at first I thought about t...

Changing Table Build.. #4: Nearly There...Plus My First hand cut Mortise and Tenon joints

05-17-2013 06:09 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

Trucking right along here. The bulk of tonight’s work was trimming the table top and carving out a couple through mortises. I have never done that before and don;t quite know what possessed me to do so but they turned out “OK” for a couple firsts. They are nice and tight but are less than pretty from the viewing side so some wedges will be in order. I do however feel very confident in their holding ability since I had to pound the crap out of the stretcher to get it set ...

Five years later, Workshop Remodel. Going from pretty to functional #1: Demolition

01-15-2014 09:41 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

At least five years ago I cleaned out an old garrison garage at the family home, took out a center wall and made a 25×25 ft shop. It looked great. Really nice. Everything in it’s place, drafting table, bulletin board, Dry erase marker board. All my power tools on one side where the dust collector was and an assembly area on the other side. I made a ‘new fangled bench’ which to this day is a nice bench. The original shop form back then can be seen at my workshop page..Th...

shop re start the new RMR #4: stop water penetration and band saw breakdown

04-13-2017 08:58 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

Hello again it’s been slow going in the shop still been darn cold out plus had some water control to get under control. This was the result of poor workmanship of the pole barn that is my shop atm. The perimeter of the buildings ground work was above the bottom of the cur-agate siding, with nothing sealing the outside moisture out. I dug down about 4 inches below the siding, pulled the lower row of screws out and layed 6 mil plastic down tucking it under the siding then replaced the sc...

BALL IN A BOX #2: The Plan

09-22-2011 04:48 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Normal to each project to have a plan, written or only in the mind, working ahead is knowing what is next. Things available: The resources that are available. The essentials are: RouterRouter Jig – I will use the straight guide, compass and roller attachments… I have to make the curving jig if the compass attachment will not suffice.Routerbits… Got 1/8” dia x 1/2” (1/4 drive) straight bit – could be used for cutting the curve.Reamer bit 1/2 drive ...
