Updates to Shop Activity

10-27-2009 01:22 PM by Critterman | 7 comments »

Hey Everyone, just a catch-up blog to let everyone know I’ve not abandoned my shop completely. There have been some developments both in projects and shop upgrades. First, I’ve posted a couple of projects, one was a music box for a friend who had surgery and the other was a bowl I turned at a Woodcraft class. Both are posted under my projects. Another I did was a picture frame and easel, this I haven’t posted yet as the one I did was a prototype and I plan to make three more for Christmas...

My restored weird vice

09-21-2013 01:54 AM by Jimbo817 | 7 comments »

Hi everyone,I inherited this vice from my dad, and I’m pretty sure it was used when he got it. So by my recollection it’s probably 60 years old or more. I have to admit that I’ve never seen one like this before, instead of the front half of the vice moving when you turn the handle the rear of the vice moves backwards. Well, I dug the thing out of storage where it’s been resting for quite a few years and as soon as I went to use it, I found that the vice would not o...

Hand Tool Journey #9: Stanley SW #3C Rehab.. The During Continued..

04-02-2013 04:25 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

I am down to waiting on paint to dry with this restoration. Here is a quick breakdown of todays events.. Scrub the base clean and prepped for paint. Now you can clearly see the patent markings.. Same for the frog.. Prime then paint… I don’t bother masking the areas that need lapping since they will all be sanded clean anyway. Saves time and leaves a cleaner line on the japanning from what I can tell. While that was drying outside I got ...

Yard sale find, and the rehab

05-07-2014 08:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

First yard sales of the season! Wasn’t that great, but a few gems were found. A bundle of saws files, for $0.50, a little rusty, but they will work. Picked up two full sized handsaws at another sale. $2 each. Got one because of who made it, and the second one because the handle was a close match. Why? real cuties, right? Well the top one will be for parts to rebuild the other one. That one just happens to be the first model of skew back saws Henry Disston made, ...

Foster Planer Restoration #4: Let em fly boy's let em fly

12-03-2011 05:08 AM by getlostinwood | 3 comments »

And she makes some very pretty shavings, not having ever made a paper thin curl with a hand plane (although the new GI is inspiring me to get started) I think the feeling and giggles that were coming out of me must be how the hand tool guys feel when they hit that zen moment. My daughter was laughing quite hysterically as I shoved wood in, measured it and then smiled an evil grin. This may not be heaven but is pretty darn close. The chance to take a machine to the bare bones, clean it up, put...

Started Projects #1: Tablesaw Build

07-31-2014 06:06 PM by Woodripper | 13 comments »

Hello all and welcome! I suppose I will start by telling you a little bit about myself. I have dabbled in woodworking since I was a young (12 years old) Midwestern farm boy. My Dad had a couple tools and we would build small projects together. Well, I am now an older (32 years old) Southern city boy and am able to buy my own tools…when the wife says it is okay. Over the years I didn’t really do much with woodworking but I always wanted to do more of it. That is why I promptly turn...
