Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #8: Edge profile and final sanding, onto finish work

11-26-2017 03:19 PM by Reinan | 3 comments »

As this table is a gift for a young couple, I thought a rounded edge on the most exposed corners would be prudent; possible small ones in the future and all. So I used a 1/8 round over bit in my venerable PC 100 which did the job well but ackwardly at times. I wish I had a smaller unit for this kind of work and have been considering the purchase of a lighter one handed type router. After completing the machine work, I sanded everything to 400 grit, wet sanding the table top. I put one thi...

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

Frame Saw #1: Building a frame saw

11-08-2017 12:39 AM by Schade | 4 comments »

Now that i have a proper Work Bench I decided to build a frame saw so I have something to use to build future projects, such as a tool chest.I watched several videos online and also bought a video about making frame saws by Isaac from Blackburn tools.I liked the looks of Isaac’s but I didn’t like the way the blade mounted. So I decided to mount the blade in the handles like Paul Sellers did in his design. I used a bunch of scrap wood from other projects I’ve done over...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE- THE PASSING OF MY FATHER, GLENN

11-07-2017 08:29 AM by holsworthwoodworks | 8 comments »

Good evening everyone! After several weeks of tremendous pain, I, Jennifer Holsworth (Kendrick) and my husband Jacob, have just now gained the strength to let everyone know that my father, Glenn Holsworth, had suddenly and tragically passed away on September 14th, 2017. Since we’ve been dealing with this terrible time on our own (without support from any family members, as it has always been my father, Glenn, myself, my husband and my son since forever) it has been very hard to cl...

10-17-2017 07:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

Video is here View on YouTube Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels.

A project in Maple #10: A chain and a brace for the lid

10-12-2017 05:27 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

A trip to Walmart…..bought a packet of chain & hooks…16’. Was the shortest they had. More for hanging a flower pot, but….I only needed a wee bit. Rest can still go to hang a flower pot…. Set the id opened to where it looked about right…eyeballed the length needed, and grabbed the bolt cutters to trim the chain to length. Two screws, set into pilot holes, to hold the chain….that was the “easy part”... So, how to hold th...

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.
