Tools #3: Blackburn Tools Roubo Frame Saw

10-07-2017 01:18 AM by Dan Wolfgang | 2 comments »

To make thin stock, I’ve planed down boards. 1”+ to 3/8-1/2” thickness for things. So much waste! I’ve tried using a hand saw to do this, but, well, you need only do it once to recognize how hard it is. A bandsaw is the obvious solution. Two years ago, it’s what I was focused on. But as I’ve come to love hand tools I find myself unexcited about a bandsaw. Another option, I discovered, is the Roubo frame saw. Both Blackburn Tools and Bad Axe make kits. These...

Mongo: my first real workbench #8: Joinery: working out the legs

05-10-2017 02:58 PM by TheRiflesSpiral | 2 comments »

Mongo’s legs are by far the most complex pieces, except perhaps the vices. They are responsible, obviously, for holding up the table surface but also for tying in the aprons and supporting the lower shelf. Clearances have to be made for the outermost ribs and bonus: there are no 90° cuts! Yay! But this is why I made the gauge in update 6 and it was used extensively. First step was to establish the top of the tenon at the correct angle. This is a through cut but I don’t have ...

MASSIVE 35" Disston Miter Saw Restoration

04-20-2017 01:01 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have been hanging onto this massive Disston miter saw. I finally decided to restore it. The handle has seen its better days so I started there creating a new one from ambrosia maple. I then spent some time cleaning the saw up and polishing the saw nuts. I then went and sharpened to saw crosscut. Subscribe for more videos!

Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...
