DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Tool Restoration - Hand Planes #1: Sargent Hercules No3

03-21-2018 10:27 PM by Straust | 4 comments »

So since there were some questions on how I got from point A to point B on my restoration of the Type 19 No5 Stanley Bailey I took a few more pictures though I will have to better next time as I got a bit lazy. So here are the before pictures as you can see the tote is broken and the knob is damaged a bit as well. There is quite a bit of rust but the body’s paint was in good shape so I decided to keep it. Here is a picture of my setup for this restoration. This time I put ...

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer.

What is "Fine Furniture"?

02-06-2018 03:53 PM by Matt887 | 16 comments »

I want to start this endeavor as I have others in my life; with an idea of where I want to go, then let the journey fill in along the way. So where I want to go is this, I want to end up being able to build furniture, fine furniture at that. After asking some questions to folks in the field they ask what I thought fine furniture was. For me the question was answered more by what I have seen in print than in person and became difficult to put into words. Therefore I have come up with a few ski...

Shop Notes #5: Sharpening

01-19-2018 05:01 PM by Steve | 5 comments »

Sharpening day yesterday. I don’t do this often enough, especially with my planes. Not sure why I procrastinate; it’s not an unpleasant job and the results are worth the effort. The chisels on the bench are new—a gift last year. Some sharpened up right away, others took some scrubbing. Today I’ll be cleaning and inspecting my table saw blades. I did take some time to do some actual work, though, tightening up some antique chairs. I don’t do furnitur...

Shop Notes #1: Organizing for the New Year

01-03-2018 04:39 PM by Steve | 0 comments »

I like to start off a new year by getting my shop in shape. After the busy holiday season, offcuts are piled everywhere, edges are dull and the deficiencies in the workspace are sharp in my mind. Shortly after Christmas, I set to work making a new stand for my lathe. The old one was designed to stand in the middle of the room and had storage on both sides. I ended up pushing it against a wall, which made that space either worthless or terribly inconvenient. The new stand—not a thing ...

Router table upgrade

01-03-2018 01:35 AM by Al Breit | 2 comments »

I just took my Kreg router table enclosed the router motor for better dust collection and added drawers for storage of router bits. I bent up an aluminum box to enclose the router with a 4” dust port. Added some extra holes for locking the spindle and a brass bar for locking the spindle height after adjustments. For the brass bar I cut a slot just big enough to allow the bar to fit through and a simple heavy duty rubber band to keep the lock leave upright. My Tryton router had it builti...
