Interesting Wood #1: Hierloom Cypress with a Surprise

02-27-2015 05:10 PM by SilverbackReef | 3 comments »

I try to use local wood as much as I can. This blog series is intended to capture and share some of the more interesting items I find. This entry covers some wood I’ve had for a few years. The wood is cypress that was grown and milled in east central Florida. The trees were felled and the boards were milled on order for my father more than 30 years ago. My father, brother and I used it to build a fence around my parent’s 3/4 acre property. After my parents passed awa...

Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest #1: The beginning

02-27-2015 04:27 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I have always wanted to build a Gerstner style wooden tool box but the drawers were designed more for a machinist than woodworking. The project has stayed on the backburner for a long time. A few months ago i saw a picture and downloaded an article from FWW on the Essential Toolbox by Mike Pekovich. I had built a wall cabinet based on his design earlier and found that the design lent itself very well to personalizing it. The toolchest design seemed to be the same way. I really wanted a th...

Finding a Great Item at a Favorite Fleatique

02-24-2015 11:16 PM by John G. | 3 comments »

One of my favorite browsing places is the Eastbrook Flea market and Antique Mall. A couple of weeks ago we were perusing the basement. there is an interesting tool vendor that often has some great old things. I found this plane. I have a smooth plane, and have seen others, but this was interesting – and complete. So here is a picture: I proceeded to disassemble it to see the condition and figure out what to do next. Here is the before slide show at Photobucket:http://s1192.photo...

VLOG 19 | 2 | 15 - Addicted to buying tools !

02-22-2015 11:54 AM by Tom Howbridge | 0 comments »

I just made a few investments including a Dewalt drill some hardwood boards, and some other tools including a Stanley hand plane, I also got a planer/jointer to restore. Although if I used, these tools could set me up for life. Then I will be more than happy. http://youtu.be/HTpNuddA4pY?list=UU9nX40E1w6tOplx7kc6Bu-Q

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #2: Still gathering supplies

02-20-2015 09:33 PM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

So this is taking too long, I’m impatient. I called the wood supplier last week and was told that more 8/4 hard maple would be in the store on Tuesday. I called Tuesday and was told Wednesday. Called Wednesday and was told Thursday. I give up, so I went south to anther supplier in Eugene and I was only able to find one suitable board to complete the legs and one really nice 8/4 piece of walnut for the chop and the deadman. While I was there I got a call from the shop in portland that th...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #1: Preparing for the build

02-11-2015 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #7: Inlay, Inlay and More Inlay

02-08-2015 05:36 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

I start out by creating a template for the oval fan medallions that will be recessed into the front of the leg. I then work on the recesses for the banding that will go on the rails. The banding on the legs at the top must match the rails exactly, and I show how I accomplish this. Then it’s cutting for the banding on the legs, along with additional stringing that will be on the front of the legs. I wrap it all up by gluing all the banding and string inlay into the legs and the rails. As al...

My Journey into a Hand Tool Wonderland. #1: Getting into tools.

02-07-2015 12:18 AM by Luke | 0 comments »

When I got started into woodworking, it was all about doing projects around the house. Every project I completed got me a new (power) tool. Its how I built my shop. I started with a circular saw and a router I got for my birthday. I built a bookshelf, got a drill. I built a built in entertainment center and got a cast iron table saw and an antique haunted jointer. My neighbor asked me to build his entertainment center and he bought me a new lighter drill and I got a 12” lunc...
