Amateur Hour #2: Nice weather = Not working in shop!

1432 days ago by agartzke | 0 comments »

Well, perhaps it was foreshadowing or some fancy trick, but I mentioned in my first (and last) post that the weather was starting to turn nice. I should have kissed the idea of woodworking over the summer goodbye right then… lucky for me I got the bug to start up again a bit earlier than expected. I spent maybe 12 hours in the shop over the two days of the weekend. It’s time to start finishing the projects that I have started, and to my chagrin, that total is currently four (ye...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #44: Not Really Woodworking (Kinda/sorta, but not really)

1455 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I woke up this morning and looked at the clock the first thought in my head was “oh, my!” It was already past 7. I don’t know why I have myself conditioned to get up so early, even if I am not pressed. Maybe it is because I have the most control of things early in the morning before everyone else gets up and things happen that disrupt the day. Those of you who read often know how much I love the quiet of the morning. Today, I am sharing it with Mozart and some Glen G...

Hand plane restoring #2: Restoring is addictive

1613 days ago by jchomme | 7 comments »

I guess this is kind of a venting process. Ive recently restored a few Bailey’s (#3 and 2-4’s) and its getting addictive. Ive cleaned some and Ive tuned some but putting a fresh coat of paint, polishing the brass, and refurbing the totes and knobs is very rewarding. Ive accumulated more baileys than I need, but when I see one I want to make it shine again(hopefuly better). Amongst other hand plane stuff I am “refurbing” my 4’s. ended up with a union in the ...

Torque Workcentre at work.. #15: Cutting rings for bases.

1646 days ago by degoose | 20 comments »

For the last few days at the end of last year ….LOL…I was very busy… I was designing a recessed base for my Lazy Larrys..I have just taken the time to post this….To start I have cut a circle of 5/8” plywood to mount the bearing.. this is roughly 300 mm or 12” in diameter as seen to the left in the first pic.This is accomplished by using the router to drill a hole in the centre.. the same size as the pin in the table. The hole is dropped over the pin and th...

Eureka! Receipt says what wood I bought!

1829 days ago by thiel | 4 comments »

The other day I enthusiastically bought some fancy wood since I was making small stuff and wanted to try out some other material. And then I promptly forgot what I bought. The receipt appears: —Bolivian Rosewood—Figured Santos Mahogany (“Bee’s wings” I think)—Mesquite (knew that) Any tips for working with these beauties? I’ve already resawed them down to get bookmatched 1/2 inch boards…. The mahogany in particular seems a bit brittl...

Segmented Bowl - 1st try

1902 days ago by Woodhacker | 15 comments »

Until recently my lathe experience has been 50 or so pen/pencils, a few miniature goblets, and a couple small 5 inch bowls over the past few years on a Jet mini lathe, enough to want to try other lathe work. This past fall I was fortunate to have the opportunity to acquire a PM 3520B, but due to other work and priorities I’ve not had a lot of time to use it yet…and that’s “killing me”. So this blog documents what I consider my first significant lathe project. Recently a partially segmen...
