Part two of my wise cracking look at my favorite woodworking show of all time… Season 1, Episode 2: Shaving Horse part one Skinny Roy Underhill is back for more! “Today we’re going to start on our shaving horse. It’s just a foot operated vise, (but) it’s essential… to the kind of work we’re going to be doing.” Roy has begun to develop a theme for the show, taking us step by step from nothing but an ax and a tree to the basic tools and techniques a primitive woodworker would have h...
"The Woodwright's Shop" Episode Review #1: Season 1, Episode 1: Skinny Roy Underhill has a glut of mauls.
I love The Woodwright’s Shop. There, I said it. I have watched every episode more times than anyone has every watched anything… ever. So I decided to make a guide to the series, episode by episode, with my heavily biased wise cracks and comments. It’ll be sort of a review of each episode complete with highlights, and a few behind the scenes bits that I’ve picked up over many years of borderline stalking. So, here we go with season one, episode one… “Not so ...
What, no spoons you might be thinking…lol. Well of course not for it is time to get grooving with our Woodrights Galoot Library! No matter what you do sometimes the wood has made up it’s mind on how well it will work for the job. In this episode the old box store pine was what I call a bit “Bitchey”,.....not sawing so well, and especially not up for me having an easy go of dadoing the inner sides. The tools were all plenty sharp but the wood was just a little tough and sappy this tim...
I always try to be as open as possible to anything that can jut a feeling of inspiration for my impulses of creativity. Recently I was lucky to catch a wonderful episode of Rick Steves. This particular trip he was in Germany and I caught the portion of the show where he was in Rothenburg at the St. James Church. Contained within this massive glorious structure was something that definitely made my jaw drop….the fantastic woodcarving held as the center piece of the church by Tilman Rieme...
Hi gang, hope all is well out there! Well, as the sanding is getting underway for my trestle table I have really been learning more and enjoying this spoon carving craft. It really is a great way to refresh your outlook and break patterns that may become repetitive in the process of executing your creative ideas. I have enjoyed the hatchet work and learning just how much you can produce with 4-5 tools. For me…... a sloyd knife, smaller knife, hook knife, camp hatchet, and sp...
Well, I finally did it! It is Finished!Only five years late! Better late than never! Assembly Instructions I sure hope he likes it & cares for it… I hope y’all enjoy it… I really the Roy Underhill Tool Tote.
Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #18: The WoodWright's Shop & The Highland Woodworker... I dunno about this...
As an owner of three strands of Roy Underhill’s mustache hair, which I bought off eBay and keep in a frame above my bed, you can imagine how excited I was to hear that Popular Woodworking has signed a deal to offer the original early years of The Woodwright’s Shop on DVD. Actually, more than just excited, I peed myself a little. I love his show. To me it takes everything great about woodworking, and all that is good and pure about television, and wraps it up into one saw-dusty pac...
As promised, here’s the final outcome of Roy Underhill’s Mystery Mallet. As you can see, I shaped the handle a little differently than they showed in the magazine. I like the squared-off handle better. I also stained the head one color and then applied several coats of tung oil to the whole thing. Thanks, again, to venues like LJ, Roy Underhill, and the folks over at Popular Woodworking. My woodworking is better because of you all.
Dear “Saint” Roy, I hate you. Sincerely, Mallet Muttering in Pennsylvania ——— Actually, I don’t hate Roy. And I’m not that disappointed as to this first attempt. If you haven’t gotten the April 2012 issue of Popular Woodworkinghttp://www.popularwoodworking.com/apr12, you need to get it… now. They’ve got a great article by Roy Underhill on making the Mystery Mallet that you’ve been seeing around. ...
This is entirely the method shown by Roy Underhill but with color pictures and timbers which he has probably never worked with. What is a glut? A glut is a wooden wedge used to split timbers green from the woods.Made from wood, to split wood! Made entirely with a handsaw and an axe. Start with about a 2’ section of log 4-5” in diameter. This is my SUV carrying it back from the woods.Here I am use Australian Blackwood. I have about 50 of these dead standing ones which ...
