Hand plane restoration

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Loft Bed Additions #1: Bark Trim Shelf

03-01-2017 04:04 AM by chrisjhennessy | 0 comments »

My sons loft certainly has creative shelving and amazing character. As I look up at the rafters, I see opportunity both in aesthetics and practicality. My plan is to add Walnut Live Edge trim to the bottom of the rafters, this is where the Loft meets the wall. If you look at these two Live Edge pieces, these 5’ pieces will fit right in the space under the rafters. The contrast will look great as a trim and the Walnut which will extend about 2” which will offer a catwalk pla...

Honey locust outdoor bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...

Miter Saw Stand from Reclaimed Wood

01-22-2017 12:21 AM by ShaunMeighan | 1 comment »

Hello all! So for this weekend’s project, I decided to make a handy stand for my miter saw. It’s very simple construction but it’s solid and does the job. I also added a trash bag on the inside to give the stand a second function. A third function is that the rails on the side can be used for clamp storage!In the future I will probably add castors to the base so that it can be easily moved around my small shop.Thanks!View on YouTube YouTube

This Old House: My First Home. #1: This Old House

12-15-2016 02:09 PM by WoodTraveler | 0 comments »

I am sure many other folks have thought about this when they got their house. I am a truck driver and I am limited mostly on time. but i am for the first time in my life venturing out to do something that i have wanted to do for many years. This past Sunday, 12/11/16 I met with my parents about a house that i have loved since I was 10 years old. As a kid we moved in next door to this old man that would quickly become one of my closest childhood friends. The man that showed me how wonder...

Turned Kitchen Scoops

12-01-2016 02:03 AM by lew | 17 comments »

So I’m down to making gifts for the nurses at my doctor’s office. I rarely visit the office for a “Sick Call” but I do take care of their computers. It’s always an inconvenience for the nurses when I have to interrupt their routines, so I try and make up for it by making each of them a little something every year. My sister gave me this idea a couple of years ago when she gifted me a turned scoop and I’ve been meaning to make some ever since. I had some ...

finishing #1: walnut slab bench finishing

11-29-2016 03:17 PM by karam11291 | 2 comments »

So i have this beautiful walnut slab which i turned into a bench. Right now its all sanded to 180- planning on sanding to 220 all around. My issue is the finish! I put boiled linseed oil on a test piece i cut and i hated the way it yellowed the edges where the bark was. I want a dark look, satin finish. I don’t mind the sap/bark wood being lighter then the heart wood but closer the better i think. I have never used water based DYES iv only worked with oil stains. Any advice!? plus I...
