Moving forward with tools in tote!

279 days ago by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hello friends! Once again I want to thank you all so much for your comments on my last blog. It was really great to hear from you all again. It was just what I needed to resurrect my soul full of ideas and woodworking spirit. My last project some years ago…lol, well it felt like years ago..lol, was going to be my Country Carving Throne. Well folks because I left that project on the shelf for so long I honestly decided to leave it on hold for for now. A few misfortunes of my mallet bl...

CC's Book Case #5: The Bowman and The Spearman

279 days ago by SquintyPolock | 1 comment »

On my way home from work, the other day, I passed though Grant Park. “The Bowman and The Spearman” sculptures caught my attention. The sculptor did not make the weapons – you have to imagine them. I was inspired to make a bow. http://chicago-outdoor-sculptures.blogspot.com/2007/09/bowman-and-spearman.html A 1/4” piece of scrap oak and some string made a bow (no doubt, Mestrovic would have been impressed). I used a bunch of clamps and some blocks to keep...

300 days ago by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

In my last blog I detailed a list of ways to get started in crafting a spoon from green wood.Since that short time ago I have learned some wonderful lessons regarding grain, timber size, and being more aware of the possibilities of a wooden spoons life if we care to use the spoon on a daily basis.

Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

308 days ago by steliart | 6 comments »

Drill Press Station – Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel? Well it was the only piece I could find that matched the diameter and you can slide up and down smoother. So the pole got a lift-up of about a foot taller. One of those ikea wire sh...

The obvious answer is to build a bench, and who doesn’t want to build something in the shop. I have been using a large granite plate for sharpening and fettling and I have a bunch of ash, so I’ve decided to combine the two. The design is like most “shop” fixtures I make, design on the fly. By keeping an old camera in the shop, I am able t...
