There is no such thing as a bad router, There are basically two types of routers, plunge routers, and fixed/stationary base, and ok i lied sorta of, the optional combo fixed router with a plunge base. Which one do you need?

Candy, this blog’s for you!!!!!!!!!!!This is the process I use to turn a scoop from a wood blank on the lathe.I start by defining the volume needed in the the scoop. The formula is Pi x R squared x depth I planned on a 1/2 cup scoop and the volume of 4 oz is 7.218 cubic inches and I want the inside to be 2 5/8” So the formula is 3.1416 x ( 1.312) squared x depth = 7.218. The depth figures out to be 1.33” I start by drawing it out and then adding scrap wood in the area...
My latest tools are these tiny trim planes. Again thanks Mads Felding for the inspiration.They are made from Jarrah and a really lovely figured piece of Banksia; all wood came from the scrap bin. I made two to use up all the timber.The blade is cut from an old 2nd hand Stanley plane using a Dremel. I still have to make another blade, insert the brass pin and design a wedge.I will post pics of the finished articles as soon as I have them finished.
Overview Even with the boat painted, there are lots of little projects to complete to make it “operational.” One of those is to build a custom set of oars. I could buy a set for $46 at Gander Mountain, but that wouldn’t do! I purchased very helpful oar plans from Chesapeake Light Craft. The smallest length for which the plans provided measurements was 6’. I determined that 5’ oars were plenty for this low boat and decided to modify their plans to suit my ...
This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...
