Thumbing a saw to test for spring steel

730 days ago by need2boat | 6 comments »

As any of you know if you know me, I can’t get near a saw without thumping on it with my thumb and hearing the tone. A wile back I said I’d make a quick vid of me doing it and I bought a saw this past weekend that was one of the cleanest I’ve heard. I normally bend my hand to raise and lower the pitch but this is so clean I just wanted to play one note and hear how long it would go. Listen for yourself. Joe

Saw Talk #18: Vintage Spear & Jackson 26" Handsaw - Sharpened and Tested

637 days ago by Brit | 38 comments »

This was the first saw I bought off ebay. I can’t remember how much I paid, but it wasn’t much. The seller only posted one dark grainy photo, so I didn’t really know what I was getting and at that time I didn’t know what to look for anyway. When it arrived and I removed the wrapping, I literally had goosebumps. I couldn’t get over how beautiful the hand-made tote was. More than once I’ve drifted off into dreamland imagining the work this saw has performed d...

Ornament 2007 #2: Finalizing Pattern and Prototype

2355 days ago by cheller | 4 comments »

I finally got the time today to work on the ornament design. An hour or so of scanning, printing, cutting and pasting got me to a design that looked promising. There are a few layout lines showing in this, the black lines are the pattern lines. The next step was to cut out a prototype and see how it worked. So it was off to the scroll saw. Just for kicks here’s a picture of my scroll saw. Once I found a piece of stock 1/8” thick walnut, I needed to attach the pattern to ...

Scroll sawing #1: Ordering a New Saw

1047 days ago by swamps42 | 6 comments »

I did it today. I went into Woodcraft, I admired the floor models of scroll saws, and then I bit the bullet. I ordered the 21” Excalibur. I should arrive Friday. I took out a loan from my best friend so I could buy the saw now, instead of in 6 months. This way I’ll be able to start using it now and have a HUGE stock of yarn bowls and ornaments for the holiday sales I’m a part of. Guy pal, who I borrowed the money from, was really sure I should get the Dewalt and save 300 ...

MsDebbieP's Company Tours #15: Sawstop

2355 days ago by MsDebbieP | 27 comments »

Last month, while at the Woodstock Wood Show I had the opportunity to check out the SawStop table saw and chat with Eric Gewiss, the Marketing Manager. The HistorySteve Gass, Ph.D., a woodworker himself, invented the SawStop technology in 2000. Mr. Gass met with existing manufacturers to have them include his SawStop in their product lines, but did not have any success. After a couple of years of trying, he, along with David Fulmer and David Fanning, built their own table saw and in 2004 ...

Wood #1: Tambuti Wood "Spirostachys africana"

946 days ago 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...

Shop Tools #9: Today's Finds - Oct 12 2007

2378 days ago by WayneC | 11 comments »

Today I visited a few antique stores in a couple of small towns near Sacramento. I thought I would share what I found. In addition to a few tools I found some woodworking books including a copy of Graham Blackburn’s “Illustrated Encyclopedia of Woodworking Handtools Instruments and Devices”. Without further adieu here are the tools…. A craftsman backsaw, two bronze spokeshaves, and a buck brothers chisel. I belive these are bronze and may be home ma...
