Tools #3: Blackburn Tools Roubo Frame Saw

10-07-2017 01:18 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 2 comments »

To make thin stock, I’ve planed down boards. 1”+ to 3/8-1/2” thickness for things. So much waste! I’ve tried using a hand saw to do this, but, well, you need only do it once to recognize how hard it is. A bandsaw is the obvious solution. Two years ago, it’s what I was focused on. But as I’ve come to love hand tools I find myself unexcited about a bandsaw. Another option, I discovered, is the Roubo frame saw. Both Blackburn Tools and Bad Axe make kits. These...

Shop Musings #1: Resaw by hand!? - You mean i could've been doing this the whole time!?

09-08-2014 06:21 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

So quite awhile back I was blessed with a Walker Turner 14” bandsaw for just $100 bucks, which I lauded as my way to finally resaw all these cool boards I’ve ammassed- and to this day I still cant get the blade to stay on. Harumph! So I finally got fed up and said to myself, how hard can it be to resaw by hand!? Since I got my Disston D-7 5 1/2 ppi rip saw, I haven’t even tried! My previous attempts were so awful, that I was discouraged… I started with a test p...

Adirondack Chair #5: Legs, Rose and Resawing

12-16-2013 02:52 AM by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

Made some good progress on the chair this weekend despite the usual competition for my time and attention. One task was to make the front leg supports and join them with the long runners. In a typical Adirondack chair these are just screwed together (and that’s how I made the practice chair) but I decided to do a half-lap joint which I’ll eventually decorate with some pegs. The layout of this isn’t straightforward, since the long runners are at about a 20 degree angle to ...

Adirondack Chair #3: Mock Up Done

12-07-2013 05:05 AM by Scott R. Turner | 3 comments »

It’s been a busy week, but I managed to find the time to bend the chair arms for the mock-up chair and see about attaching them. I also trimmed the back slats to a gentle arc. Here are a couple of views: and As you can see from the line of holes up near the top of the back, I had the top back brace too high and had to move it down. While I had the brace off, I also shaped it to the curve of the back. I did this with a drawknife and spokeshave. The drawknife is certain...

Resawing - The boards have eyes...

12-06-2012 04:54 AM by David Craig | 16 comments »

One of the pleasant things about moving from a beginner to a more intermediate stage in woodworking is that you start paying attention to things you didn’t really focus on before. My work tonight, for example, involves a little more thought about grain orientation in glue-ups. I am still working on cutting boards, I have to have a dozen made in the next week or so. As I am moving along, I have had to give some more concentrated thought in regards to the wood pieces I salvaged and how...

Resawing Face-Off

06-26-2012 02:17 AM by Scott R. Turner | 4 comments »

I recently bought a plane blade and a marking knife from Japan Woodworker and almost on a whim bought a double-edged Japanese saw as well. I’ve since been using it regularly ever since and have basically given up on Western-style saws for my cutting needs. Recently I made a spill plan for my father-in-law. I bought an old skew rabbet plane off of Ebay, re-soled it (mostly to close up the mouth), and added a fence set for 3/4” stock. With the blade set for a medium-heavy cut ...

Done: Simple Headboard Build

02-05-2012 06:30 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 129 comments »

Walnut Headboard Build A quick project that is needed but is also a nice mental diversion from the daily grind. Material pulled from inventory is (very) rough cut ‘wormy walnut’ sapwood that isn’t good for much, but is something around 5/4 thick and is long enough (and wide enough) to do the job before me. Using this for the rails, top and bottom. I’ll joint one edge, work up the face, then rip the piece before deciding on what to do with any design element. ...
