I did some experimenting on cutting the ends of box joints flush with the sides. The last box I just used the Random Orbital sander to get them flush. I finally figured it out after a while and got to the point where I could slice the tops off the box. https://youtu.be/IM1liBrAsKw
I finally got around to putting some more woodworking footage together. I am enjoying using some hand tools, but the power tools are nice too. I am making a series of 3 boxes, sized to fit photos, for presents. These are preparing the top and bottom panels for them. I do lots of my initial work with hand tools. Breaking down the rough sizes and getting a clean edge to go up against the fence of the table saw. Maybe some day I will get good enough to do it all by hand, but flattening a w...
Using an old driver bit I made a counter sink by cutting of the ends and grinding a blunt point on one end, then I filed a flute along the ground edge, I used a cheap bit as its a lot easier to work with and sharpen but a good quality bit may hold a better edge. I found it worked really well with an impact driver a drill driver, high speed low speed, it worked quite well even for large headed screws, dry for yourself to see if you can create one just like mine or even better ! WATCH THE...
I have been reading blogs and articles recently, by people who make their own hand saws and decided to make one of my own for no good reason. I made a good heavy duty twelve inch 11 tpi rip filed back saw. I made the back out of a heavy piece of lawn border,bluing it with a propane torch and motor oil. I made the blade out of an old wrecked hand saw that had a kink that I did not feel was worth trying to pound out. I watch for these at flea markets because wrecked saws are an inexpensive ...
Finally my first video is out! It is a lamps series that I made for a sushi restaurant. Basically I’ve used Spanish pine wood and water-based lacquer to finishing. Please feel free to leave a comment below and if you like, give a Thumbs Up and Subscribe! Watch the full video at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjJBOy_3Ge0
Had a lot of fun producing my video on the setup of my first Japanese plane (‘Kanna’). It’s tempting to leave the entire process in, and much easier too, but for the sake of viewer sanity I cut out periods of sole and bed scraping, and blade lapping, etc. just leaving enough to show the methods. It still runs to twenty minutes, but hopefully anyone interested will stick with it to see the results! I can’t figure out how to embed it here on the page, but you can w...
Just finished setting up my first Kanna. I like it – why did I wait so long to get one! I’ve filmed my setup procedure, which was based on various articles and videos online (big credit to fellow LJ Mafe, and his blog post), and will be posting a video to YouTube in the near future. I found the experience very calming, pretty easy, and quite successful – 0.04mm full width shavings (holding together) against the grain with virtually no tear out. Clearly I can improv...
I bought this one at the local Ciderfest a couple of weeks ago and decided I would do a bit of work to it in order to see what I had. I will likely do some further tuning to it as I do with all my things as I go along, but this was just to get it working. I guess everyone who does woodworking videos on You Tube is obliged to do some sort of sharpening video and I am counting this as mine. I suppose I could have split this up into shorter segments, but wanted to keep the continuity. Makin...
