A few years back, picked an old plough plane at a Garage sale.. Wasn’t much to look at…needed a few things done….was in a hurry, needed a way to make grooves besides a electric router….Tried to fix it up….never did hold a setting..wedges were too worn..the one I made for the cutter was a hair too small….cutter was made from a 1/4” chisel…..was ploughing grooves to build a screen door…plane was having issues…...finally, it was ju...

Shop stuff #122: Making a new strop.

04-18-2018 01:20 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I have one. But it was just thrown together from scraps to test it out. Naturally it worked well, no surprise there, I now strop more than I “sharpen”. The problem with the original one is that it is too narrow for all my plane blades. So now that I am convinced of its usefulness, it’s time to build a proper one. I gave a bit of thought on a design that would be versatile for me and then made it. The first attempt was thwarted by bugs though, so I had to start over aga...

Shop Notes #17: Experimenting with Black Acacia

04-13-2018 04:05 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

Some time last year, a local lumberyard cleared out the last of their black acacia for dirt cheap. The lumber wasn’t great—lots of splits and narrow pieces, but for the price, it was worth a gamble. After a few months in the shop, I finally broke out a couple of boards to make some beer flight paddles and a wine rack or two. For the paddles, I wanted to create a flat-bottom surface for the tasting glasses. Boring a partial hole with a forstner bit would leave a score around...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Dungeon Remodel, the drill til #2: Clean a bench, install the til

04-05-2018 04:54 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, part 2. Instead of taking a nap, decided to clean house in the shop…. Lots of just junk in the way….other items just needed put away, finally. This “bench” used to be an old square table, somewhere in it’s history, it lost it’s legs. So now, it sits on a pair of sawhorses. This was the original bench when the Dungeon Shop first started up. Grinder and sanding center needed to be switched around. First, wire wheels were removed from the g...

DIY Bat Houses

04-04-2018 02:01 PM by wrenchhead | 8 comments »

I made these bat houses over the weekend. Mosquitoes get pretty bad where I live and it is beneficial to have bats around as natural insect control. These definitely are not fine woodworking projects but they are fun, cheap and easy to make. I hope you like the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjbAb255M68

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Shop Notes #14: Postponed

03-23-2018 03:52 PM by Steve | 3 comments »

My planned weekend show was postponed a week due to heavy rains. (It’s an outdoor event, and apparently ducks have taken up residence on the lawn where my table is supposed to sit.) The postponement was a bit of a blessing, as it relieves the pressure to get items done on a tight timeline—there’s a impulse to cut corners that I have to resist. Shortly before the cancellation was announced, I had resolved to focus on two cabinets, one sapele, the other walnut—get the...
