Grandsons in the workshop:: Continued.. #2: 2 Grandsons, 6 weeks, Workshop fun and learning (who?)

06-30-2018 12:37 PM by oldguy2 | 2 comments »

Hey , over a year ago..seems longer. I was able to have my oldest grandson in my shop to drill some holes with a brace.(in a blog) he loved it. I think he was 5. Now he is 8 and his brother ready to have some adventure is 5 and a half. My mind is rapidly going through the “what should I give them as safe and easy lessons for that age?” worse is as a retired teacher I keep thinking steps or safety and get bogged down. One at a time in the shop is my rule unless their Dad is th...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #92: Temporarily Out of Commission!

10-24-2017 04:53 PM by Paul Bucalo | 14 comments »

Just when I was gearing up to start up production for this quarter and next year, I go and do a really stupid thing. A few days ago I was in the bed of a Ford F-250 pickup, helping to get a 6’ x 8’ cap onto the box. I was so focused on the work I neglected to let the common sense alarm ring, so it would warm me of impending stupidness. I went to jump down onto the ground, but instead of climbing over the tall box side, I jumped off the top of it. Probably a good five feet abov...

SAFETY and a few words about hand tools

02-20-2017 09:59 PM by Jack McKee | 4 comments »

SAFETY and a few words about hand tools When I first thought about teaching woodworking to kids I wondered, “would it be safe?”. At the time I couldn’t find any written information other than wear safety glasses and “be safe”. After I had been teaching for a while I found the first question parents always asked was, “is woodworking safe for my child?”. The article below is the chapter on safety from my book Woodshop for Kids with a few minor changes. This was written with the...

Shop Safety #1: Do not become complacent, power tools are unforgiving **WARNING GRAPHIC IMAGES**

12-27-2016 03:27 PM by McPheel | 4 comments »

I wanted to start this blog on shop safety as this is a very important aspect of any work you do. As woodworkers, we are exposed to hazards every time we go into the shop, whether it is a table saw that could remove a few fingers, a sharp chisel or even just going up a ladder to grab some boards from your lumber rack. It is shocking how quickly and easily we can injure ourselves which can be either simply counter productive possibly forcing you to sand some blood stains off of your piece or e...

Quick Tip #7: Work Holding Part 1

09-26-2016 04:04 PM by Kent Shepherd | 6 comments »

Last time I promised a blog on work holding. This subject has almost become an obsession with me the last few years. I got tired of making do with c clamps and other ways to clamp something firmly and safely. I grew up in a shop where safety was not always a big priority and as a result saw numerous accidents over the years. Working in production for years influenced my thinking to do things safely, but yet maintain a certain amount of speed. In the next few blogs I would like to share some ...

Workshop safety #1: Workshop fire – averted . . . and a “whuf” question

08-22-2016 05:37 PM by lightweightladylefty | 11 comments »

In the process of making a jig, I routed a dado for T-track in recycled plywood. Since my trim router was already set up with a ¾” straight bit, I used it – making four shallow passes 9” long and a total depth of 3/8”. After each pass I stopped and vacuumed the sawdust. After the final pass when I started to vacuum, I saw burning embers and immediately stopped vacuuming. (You can see the burn remaining in the dado in the photo above.) I knocked the sawdust out of the dado and onto the ...

Cutting Small Parts On The Miter Saw

02-11-2016 02:47 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 16 comments »

In this video I share how I cut small parts on the miter saw. I am sure this one will be cause for active commentary from the safety police and maybe the hand tool junkies for not using a fancy hand saw to cut small pieces. Well, this is the way I do it in the American Craftsman Workshop. Because if the tool doesn’t make any noise and throw a rooster tail of sawdust, how am I supposed to know that any work is getting done? I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful;) Rem...
