Hand plane restoration

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #2: The solution to keeping cost low (in my situation)

03-14-2017 04:55 PM by Questtut | 3 comments »

I know, not everyone is in the same situation as I am. Some are more lucky than I, and some just don’t have as many opertunities as I do. So that’s tosay, you may not be able to use the solutions I have, you may have other options I dont, but, this is what I found. As a commercial truck driver, more specifically a flat be driver, I have many opertunities to bring home what’s known as “dunnage”. In essence that is lumber (of many types and sizes) that is...

Heavy Woodworkers Bench #1: Idea for a low cost work bench solution

03-14-2017 04:30 PM by Questtut | 0 comments »

I had been tossing around the thought this I want a better work bench. The problem is, I don’t have much money or time to build one. As a commercial truck driver by trade, I’m only home for a little more than 1 day per week, and much of that time is taken up caring for my kids, house and volunteering in the Scouting Organization. But, like every other wood working enthusiast, I know I need to just make some time to do what I love doing. So on each weekend that I have even just ...

Shop Stool

03-14-2017 12:35 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

I begin the make of a stool for the workshop, with a comfortable height for my body. The wood used, here in Argentina, is called “Anchico” (Parapiptadenia rigida). It is a hard and heavy wood, which for its can also be used outdoors. In this first part designed a template, I decided to make the legs first. I wanted them to have a shape that remembered some of those forms of the fine antique European furniture, but simplified. A visual suggestion, a recall, but not the details o...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1827: All That Glitters

03-10-2017 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a wild and incredibly busy week. I have spent most of my days up in my shop, working on cutting my wood orders. It is difficult to call it 'work' because I do enjoy doing what I do so much. With the release of Lynne Andrew's Noah's Ark series last week, there has been a huge rush to purchase the wood pieces from me. Along with this have been our regular orders and all the other business tasks. I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined being in such a wonderf...

Shop stuff #83: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 14 The pain continues

03-08-2017 02:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

We don’t get far in this episode but we do a lot of work getting there. In reality, I could have left all this footage out and no one would be the wiser. It could have been a completely sterile build on video, with no challenges or mistakes, but that is not real life. View on YouTube

Dining table inspired by the Greene & Greene Thorsen table #5: Veneer Resawing- Bottoms

03-07-2017 04:05 AM by TungOil | 4 comments »

I spent some time this weekend setting up to resaw my veneers. I put together a quick jig to help assure my veneer thickness came out as even as possible. Since even a variance of just 0.005” over ten slices of veneer could add up to nearly 1/16”, I made sure my jig was parallel to the blade. In addition, I flipped the board for each slice of veneer to cancel out any error accumulation. Each veneer slice is 5-1/4” wide and 5’ long. The cuts take about 18 m...

Workbench #9: Time for a break

03-07-2017 02:27 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 0 comments »

Over the weekend I worked on the bench a bit. I marked many areas of the base to drill holes: to drawbore tenons, planned out the leg vise, etc. Saturday afternoon I felt like I was a little stuck. I really need to drill some holes to get things together and continue with the base. I don’t have a drill press so would have to drive over to my parents’ house to use my great-grandfathers press. My wife told me to just go on Saturday; I should have listened to her but didn’t....

Oahu Guitar Restoration #3: Removing the Fretboard and Neck

03-06-2017 04:45 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

Video is here if you prefer not to read http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lZ1XroRf8o&feature=youtu.be Part 3 of this series is a simple prospect of removing the fret/fingerboard (they’re different names for the same thing) as well as the neck. The traditional joint for a guitar neck to be attached is a dovetail, this one was no exception however it was extremely poor in it’s execution (not surprising considering the number of these they made and the budget they were mad...
