The Straightedge (video) #3: Not Another Video on Card Scrapers

03-18-2010 06:36 PM by Brian Havens | 16 comments »

Some time ago, 105 days ago to be precise, I posted a forum question asking woodworkers who do not use card scrapers “why not?”. The intention was to get information which would help me make a video. As life has a way of getting in the way of plans, it took some time before I could make the video, but it has finally arrived. I look forward to your feedback.Here is the link to the video and the writeup from my video page:http://brianhavens.us/resource/card-scrapers If you hav...

Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #3: The Tools are Here

08-21-2009 06:40 PM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got the tools today so I thought I would show you guys what I got. First you can try to guess the hidden objects. They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...

Bowling Alley Workbench #6: There is more than 1 way to skin a cat - not so with bowling alley floors though - finally success

07-08-2009 06:19 AM by PurpLev | 36 comments »

Yes. Finally some light at the end of the tunnel, reverse thinking, and this project seems a bit more doable, and even not much trouble at all. Originally I tried to get the (2.5” hardened) nails out by using a cat’s paw and a hammer to pull each nail out of the 2.5 laminated hard-rock maple strips. I figured once I get all the nails out of the top strip, it’ll just free it from the lamination, and be nails free… one strip at a time, until I have them all cleared ou...

Bowling Alley Workbench #3: Back to Square1... Committed to new Design - legs are ready.

06-22-2009 04:29 AM by PurpLev | 15 comments »

so After setting on the last design (see previous post in this series) I went out to disassemble the bowling alley laminated top – the purpose was to remove all the nails, so that I can drill the dog holes, and also laminate it in a double stack to give me a 4” top on the perimeter (5” in from the edges – for clamping purposes, and leg attachments). This idea turned to be disastrous. The nails are hardened steel, and twisted making the job of pulling them outridicul...

Step-back Cupboard Build #2: Cutting and more gluing!

06-09-2009 06:27 AM by rwyoung | 3 comments »

Now that the sides are sized and cut to length, it is time for cutting feet and marking up to get ready for dados, rabbits and dovetails (dados, rabbits and dovetails, oh my! Sorry Dorthy.). The feet of the cupboard are cut into the sides and two lower front stiles. Notice that the “front” foot is slightly narrower than the “rear” foot. This 3/4” difference will be made up by the stile after it is attached. I drew the shape I wanted on some scrap 1/8”...

Free scrapers that work

05-15-2009 11:21 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 30 comments »

Ah ha! Got your interest right? This is a little video that introduces glass as a scraper. I use them all the time and prefer them in many instances to steel ones. Plus glass is free. It is you know, nearly everywhere and in quantity. Take a look and see, it only lasts a few minutes. Thanks for looking, Dan. Added note: You can use glass for a long time before it dulls. I sometimes use one piece on an entire project. It’s harder than metal scrapers. But it doesn’t matter as lon...

Sharpening a Card Scraper #1: I learned how to sharpen a card scraper today - the easy way

03-18-2009 04:01 AM by CXD | 4 comments »

Between T-Chisel and The Wood Whisperer I have been convinced I need to learn to use a card scraper. So, I bought 2 on Amazon.com. One I figured I would mess up beyond repair, and one to be able to actually use. I don’t know if anyone else has had problems with sharpening card scrapers but its been a pain in my butt. I’ve just had a hard time justifying the purchase of a burnisher, about $25, and sharpening stones, a lot of dollars – or sandpaper. Then you really need...

The multi-purposed 2x4 Winter 2008 #2: A bit of gluing. A bit of shaping.

01-10-2008 01:22 AM by YorkshireStewart | 13 comments »

Today, it’s some work on the back bow or arm of the chair as well as the seat itself. I’m starting by roughing out the profile of the two forward components of the arm. They’ll be connected by a third piece that will be stabilised during glueing with (pine!) biscuits. All three are bridged by a strengthening crest rail: A satisfying part of chairmaking to me(during which I turn down the workshop heating, thus improving my carbon footprint!!) is the sculpting of the se...
