Fun with hand saws #2: Sharpening LN

04-28-2012 02:19 AM by JeremyPringle | 1 comment »

Hopfully you have read the previous blog where I tested three saws. In that test I found how badly I need to sharpen my LN progressive pitch DT saw. And because I am in the midst of cutting lots of dovetails (see my other blog series) I decided that I should take a break and sharpen the saw before continuing. So that is what I did. The first thing I did was to clamp the saw between two pieces of cherry with just the teeth sticking out, this way there is little to no vibration on the pla...

Intarsia Basics #3: Let’s Do Some Cutting!

04-19-2012 02:25 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

Thanks for joining us for the third installment of “Intarsia Basics” and this is where it starts to get really fun. Cutting out the pattern is one of the best parts of doing this kind of art. It takes a little practice to get used to using your saw. You can look up some practice patterns or just make some zig zags, loop the loops, straight lines, gentle curves, and circles on a piece of paper and glue to a practice board. Cut out some of these and you will start getting used to the “feel ...

Moxon bench #1: shaker desk I'm process. I need a bench!!!

04-16-2012 01:33 AM by John | 3 comments »

having just finished reading the Schwarz’s Workbench design book before heading back into my shop to finish my daughter’s Shaker style desk, I am seriously Jonesing for a real bench. rather than go all-out Ruobo for my first real bench, I’m thinking of making a Moxon-ish dovetailing bench. it also needs to be a bench for sharpening with my new Brian Burns double bevel system ( http://www.lessonsinlutherie.com/doublebevelsharpeninghirez.html ). I’m thinkin...

Intarsia Basics #2: Preparing Your Wood and Pattern for Cutting

04-11-2012 01:20 AM by KoryK | 18 comments »

Intro: Hello to all and welcome to the first installment of Intarsia Basics. Before we can start cutting we need to select the wood we want to use and get our pattern ready. Wood Choices: I prefer to start with stock that is one inch thick because that gives you a lot of depth that you can work with. It will require a little more sanding on some areas but it will help to give your piece a 3D look. It is your choice if you prefer to stain your wood to achieve the colors or use exot...

Grizzly Viking Sharpening Station Refurb #1: Sharpening System Refurb

04-09-2012 01:11 PM by ratchet | 4 comments »

Time for a refurb of a garage sale purchased (2009) Grizzly Viking Wet stone sharpening station. Although its obviously see better days (see photos), the old girl still works well and the stone is still almost full size. I also have a big Tormek and my thought was to use this unit in tandem (with this being the “coarser” stone). You can see in the photos that I have already trued the stone square with one of those diamond trueing thingys...Plans:DissassembleClean or replace rusted...

I'm still here

04-06-2012 01:25 AM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

I haven’t fallen of the face of the earth but I am behind on the Queen Size bed build. It has become a money pit because of a 5/8” mortising bit that I didn’t own. Then I realized that the throat on the mortising machine is on 6” and the bottom rail is 8” so I ordered a 5/8” mortising chisel. While waiting for it to get here I dry fit the head board and low and behold a queen size bed is more than 6’ wide and by the way that was the longest length of pipe clamp that I owned. So then I shell o...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #16: Da Plane! Da Plane!

04-01-2012 10:12 PM by StumpyNubs | 18 comments »

If you like to see fat midgets pointing up at the sky, you’ve come to the right place, my friend! (Actually, there are no midgets here, and I am not entirely sure we are allowed to say that word anymore…) But the reference still applies because this episode is all about “Da Plane! Da Plane!” We start out with a quick tool review, then we make a scrub plane for just #10. Along the way we learn the fastest way to put a camber on a plane iron, we reveal the plane till ...
