Shop Times #2: New Planes

06-08-2013 04:01 AM by Brohymn62 | 9 comments »

So I was working in my shop one day and along comes one of my neighbors. He says that he’s seen me doing some work and asks me if I am interested in some old wood he is clearing out of a storage unit. I say sure, bring it by and I’ll find something to do with it. So he comes by a couple of days later with a truck load of old birch plywood and melamine.. and old table… misc bits and pieces of what was a woodshop one day. I was thrilled to have some more material to work with&...

A Box with 2 glass sides!

11-08-2014 10:18 PM by DocSavage45 | 20 comments »

I’ve been spending most of my non working time rehabbing my windows on the second floor of my Country style Queen Anne house. sometimes working from the inside and often working off a tall 2 story ladder. A necessary task that I have neglected for 14 years! The project here is my last window for the season. It’s going to snow here in Southern MN and temperatures will drop. This is a box of sorts, with glass on two sides. It replaces a real catastrophe in the laundry room whi...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #12: Living with old tools

05-12-2011 12:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high. T...

The clock is composed of 3 parts and each of them will be restored in 3 sessions. We will start with the top We remove the bronzes The unglued brass pieces are lifted and rubbing is made for the missing brass elements The cavities are full of oxidized glue that nee...

Coffee Table Refinishing #1: Pride

11-30-2011 11:04 PM by JaLatham | 0 comments »

A few months ago, a friend asked me if I was good enough at woodworking to refinish a coffee table. So, I of course took the challenge and thought piece of cake. No planning, no milling, no joinery, no assembly, no problem. HA! And any of you out there who have ever refinished anything are probably laughing too. Never again -Lord willing- will I be so prideful. Soon after I scraped the first application of stripper on one side, I realized what I had gotten myself into. So, I trudged along, s...

It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Part 1

02-15-2010 10:48 AM by Brad | 3 comments »

So here is my start of the restoration of the Stanley #3 and #4. I picked these up after going to pick up an air filter from a guy on Craigslist and low and behold he had a few planes he didn’t mind selling me for $15 for both. I’m going to try and include some videos on here as well since I know we all love seeing those! My goals are to bring these beauties back to life bright and shinning and creating some paper thin shavings. The blades look decent still and after cleaning w...

An Old Barn #1: Introduction

04-18-2010 12:43 AM by slickytfox | 13 comments »

Hello, I am Tim from PA. I would not call myself an experienced woodworker by any means. I hope that my participation here is not taken in any negative way with regards to your craft. Due to this past winter’s snow storms, I have been presented a situation and I really don’t know where to turn. Through some searches, I arrived at this forum in hopes of receiving advice. On the property that I have been on for not even a year yet, there are several work sheds (or barns as we ...
