Frame Saw Build #3: Template me this, Curve me that.

10-24-2011 08:25 PM by PurpLev | 14 comments »

Using my previously made SketchUp model I made a full sizes printed template using the following steps: 1. Setting up a Parallel view: The default view in SketchUp is “Perspective” which allows us to view things in 3D which looks ‘real’ due to the perspective view but for printing we want to be able to see the drawings in 2-D as if they were printed on a flat paper (which is what we about to do). In order to do this you need to go to the menus under “Camera...

TheWoodWhisperer Woodworkers Fighting Cancer Rocking Horse #4: Getting a Handle on things

10-12-2011 02:57 AM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

With the horse finished (literally as in 2 coats of shellac) the only thing missing was 2 handles for the ride. as it seems the horses ears were a good alternative and worked well, but proper round handles would probably be more comfortable for younger ones and well, I have the mounting holes for them already so better put them to good use. My original idea was to use mahogany for the handles as I have a left over of mahogany that was my workbench wagon vise handle that was transformed int...

The Restoration of a 14" Tenon Saw #1: Identification, Historical Evidence and a Vivid Imagination

10-02-2011 04:36 PM by Brit | 27 comments »

In this blog series, I’d like to invite you to join me on a journey of discovery as we look at the history and restoration of an old English back saw. This is where the story starts… I really wanted one of these (Adria Large Tenon Saw 14”x 4”) …but didn’t have enough of this: So over a number of weeks, I trawled through eBay.co.uk, until I finally found and bought this… The saw plate is 14” long and the saw is 18 ½” overall. It has an iron back and is...

Wood #1: Tambuti Wood "Spirostachys africana"

09-14-2011 07:10 AM by thiswoodshop | 3 comments »

Spirostachys africana is a medium-sized (about 30 ft tall) deciduous tree with a straight clear trunk found in the warmer parts of Southern Africa. Its wood is known as tamboti, tambotie, tambootie or tambuti. It prefers growing in single-species often along watercourses or on brackish flats and sandy soils. Despite its being prone to heart-rot, it is prized in the furniture industry for its beautiful, dense and durable timber, which is reddish-brown with darker streaks, a satin-like lu...

Giant Bandsaw located at Laguna Beach, California

08-28-2011 05:35 PM by Loren | 11 comments »

I was down in Laguna and took some pictures of this reputed 38,000 lb behemoth. My guess is the wheel diameter is 66”-72”. Curiously the height capacity betweenthe guide blocks is only about 14”, so the saw must have been used in a differentsetup for initial slabbing of logs, or a different saw was used for the rough workwith the big trees and this saw was used for cutting dimensioned beams. The upper guide is not adjustable, but it does appear to be removable so conc...

Vintage Split-Nut Driver - Well kind of :o)

08-07-2011 06:01 PM by Brit | 20 comments »

Busy, busy, can’t stop! Saw this (no pun intended) on eBay… ...and thought of this. Hacksaw, files and P600 wrapped around a dowel. Perfect fit. No more mullered split-nuts. Miss ya, luv ya, cant stop! P.S – Don’t file while drinking, especially if its your 5th one. I’m a bad woodworker!

Shop Update #2: Finally - A Serious Saw!

08-07-2011 05:54 AM by Dave | 14 comments »

I finally saved up enough to buy a cabinet saw that can handle everything I’ll be able to throw at it for many years to come. My old Ridgid TS2410LS is a great saw, but it doesn’t have the cutting capacity for big jobs, it’s dusty, and it’s LOUD. My new saw is a 3HP Saw Stop Professional Cabinet Saw with the 36” fence, industrial mobile base, and overarm dust collection. I won’t bother doing another review of it – the ones on here are pretty accu...
