Canoe Paddle #3: Up the Creek with a Finished Paddle

03-10-2012 04:18 PM by Bagtown | 4 comments »

So, here we go.This will be the final chapter to this series.When we left off the paddle blade and shaft were somewhere between roughed and semi finished.The next step is a little slower. At least for me it is.The handgrip.Excuse the poor photography, but here is what were starting with for the handgrip. You get the idea. We’re starting with just a roughsawn blank.I think if I had been a little slower and used just a little more care at the bandsaw stage, then I wouldn’t have s...

Sitting Bench Step Stool #1: History, Templates and the Initial Leg Shaping

06-29-2012 11:56 AM by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

After all of the support I received during our recent website troubles, I knew I had to come up with a special way of saying thank you. I considered sending out cards or personal emails, but I ultimately decided that the best way to show my appreciation would be to build one of the most requested projects ever: the Step Stool Sitting Bench. The reason this one gets requested so often is because it happens to be featured in our show’s introduction. The PastThis particular stool was actua...

Building a new workbench #5: Half-lapping the side rails

02-12-2009 09:44 PM by Loogie | 3 comments »

Last night I got to put in a few hours on the bench project. I’ve been working on half-lapping the side rails. First marked out the dovetails then I cut them on the band saw. The upper stretcher is a full half-lapped dovetail and the bottom rails has a half-lapped dovetail only on the bottom side. The top side gets a wedge pin to complete the dovetail. After I had the dovetails cut I cut the shoulders with a hand saw then I headed over to the table saw where I used my dado head t...

My Maloof lowback #10: The dark spots are my sweat

08-26-2012 09:46 AM by Antti | 6 comments »

Except for a small rotary tool I use around the joints, I dont dare to use power tools at this stage. So yes, those dark spots are my sweat. Dripping sweat makes the chairs that much more handmade? Anyway, I can see the form slowly coming together – a glimpse of the hardline here and there, a maloof joint starting to look its part,... I have to pace myself, as if I keep going too tired, I become careless and make mistakes. I hope they sand out…

My Maloof Rocker #2: Using A Rasp

06-28-2011 06:51 PM by Tim Dorcas | 3 comments »

In this video Randy Child discusses the use of the rasp in shaping wood and demonstrates its use. My apologies in advance for the noise. I filmed this in a production environment of which I had no control. That said, you can still hear the content which I believe is relevant. Enjoy! Tim PS – Check out my website for more videos and woodworking information.

Very quick update on the guitar… Johnathan has been rather busy galavanting around the South East and down to the Gold Coast…Got him back into the workshop on Wednesday and started the final shaping of the back of the neck…..Used a half inch radius round over bit to scarf out the rough shape… leaving quite a large quirk…I gave Johnathan a rasp and told him to remove all the timber that did not look like a guitar neck… HMM sound a little like Mr MiyagiHe had...

Saw handle repairs

02-02-2012 05:32 AM by need2boat | 7 comments »

So I’ve been working quite a bit on saw sharpening skills and for the most part its been going well. I’d say I’m learning with each saw I work on and getting better file angle control. That said some of the nicest saws I have also have some handles in need of love. I recently took a second class with Matt of the saw blog on saw restoration and let’s face it were all wood workers so its back to basics. Disston and son”s” No 7 Its important to note m...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #5: What's In a Partition?

04-14-2012 09:55 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 13 comments »

The Inspiration Piece features a couple of partions with great curves that I want to replicate in my cabinet, so I pulled out paper, pencil and scissors and set about tracing one of them. The original: Put on paper: I did the glue-up of the panel last week, and planed it true and smooth. The orig is 21” and that means the pattern is not ‘to scale’... But a photocopier came to rescue… I Shaded the profiled edge of the pattern a...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #9: Microplane

09-12-2007 12:37 PM by MsDebbieP | 15 comments »

This week, I had the privilege of speaking with Katie Surratt, the Marketting and Public Relations Associate at Microplane. _ Microplane is perhaps best known for their rasps, but there is so much more to this company. The HistoryThe company first began its journey making parts for dot-matrix printers. As the need for these parts began to disappear the company knew that they had to start building something else. The parts, which they had been making for the printers, were extr...
