Tool Making #1: August 2011 has a couple of tool making related articles

06-07-2011 05:57 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

Figured I would start a new series related to tool making. I recieved Fine Woodworking yesterday and I noticed that there is an article/video on making and using a simple Scratch stock. This is another one of those items that has been on my build list for a while. Additionally there is an article on how to make a dove tail marker out of brass and some chisels for refining dove tails. The chisels look like they are right up Mads alley. The chisels are made from Hock Marking Knife bl...

Bootstrapping a living-room workbench #3: Sawing & planing…

06-04-2011 10:47 PM by Damien Pollet | 6 comments »

The milling is taking some time, so I might as well report on progress in this blog entry rather than in comments… Sawing (after ~2 weeks) Nothing really interesting to show, besides sweat, saw dust and shavings… over the last weeks I’ve been busy with work stuff during the day, and milling stock during the evenings I still had some energy to burn :) So far, the 4 leg blanks are cut, as well as 8cm wide pieces that will become stretchers and top braces after some more sawing. This af...

Sharpening methods #1: What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why?

06-03-2011 01:48 PM by mafe | 157 comments »

What is your favorite iron and sharpening method AND why? After we had a few talks on Berthas ‘what is your favorite hand plane’ blog I decided we needed to go to next step. So please let us hear your thoughts show us pictures videos why you like your blade or sharpening method and proofs if they exist why it should be better than other. I am lazy by nature, and handicapped by life, so for me to stand and move the blade forward and backward on a stone or paper is a pa...

Playing Around with Carving #1: Getting Rolling

06-01-2011 02:11 AM by WayneC | 19 comments »

I had been thinking about playing with carving for a while. I did some exploring in a forum post and decided it would be better to continue the discussion in a blog format. This way I can track my progress. The original post that got this started is located here. There is lots of good information in the forum post on safety and carving resources. I’ve decided to start with chip carving for several reasons. First, I am currently temorarly stuck in a wheel chair/walker due to a fal...

Chasing accomplishments...... #2: Constant Motion...

Where to begin…...? Listen to this, then read on…....(It’s better with the speakers way up) Dream Theater has got to be one of my favorite bands. Too bad they aren’t really functional right now….. I think that song sums it up. I have a philosophy that if you aren’t moving forward then you must be moving backwards. One way or the other you are always moving. I don’t know about the rest of you lumberjocks, but I work a sometimes hectic sc...

sharpening cheap chisel

05-17-2011 02:42 AM by andyboy | 9 comments »

This was an interesting exercise. I quietly hoped I was going to transform one of these cheap chisels but it was not to be. They are so buckled and bent that even 3 nz dollars was too much to pay. See what you think any way.Andy.http://www.youtube.com/user/Aandyaitch123

My Start #1: Building Office Cabinets

05-13-2011 04:13 PM by macatlin1 | 1 comment »

A few years ago I became interested in wood working again. It was probably after I bought a Craftsman table saw from a neighbor for $25. I already had a band saw, a drill press and a sander. But my previous foray was interrupted by a divorce, marriage and 4 moves. It was also about that time that my wife and I decided to convert a bedroom into an office. When we looked at cabinets in the local big box store sticker shock set in. The price was outrageous for a few upper kitchen cabinets m...

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #2: Disston #4 backsaw rehab-Part 2-Sharpening, testing and adding to tool kit

04-10-2011 03:50 PM by Brad | 12 comments »

I’ll be honest. The thought of sharpening all those little teeth, with their attendant geometries has always intimidated me. But so did tuning my first Stanley Bailey Type 11 smoother. And what I’ve learned from tuning my planes is that I understand my tools and the way they shape the wood on a much more intimate level. And that’s made me a better woodworker. I wanted to have that same understanding for my handsaws. And I wanted to have the confidence and skill to sharpen...

Download Low ResolutionDownload High Resolution During the Greene & Greene coffee table class I attended a few weeks ago, William Ng gave us an impromptu lesson in scraper sharpening. Fortunately I had my Flip Cam at the ready and captured this tutorial for your enjoyment. William uses Takenoko 4,000 and 8,000 grit sharpening stones and you can pick those up in his store. How do you like that fancy water bath? Looking for a small set of card scrapers? Check this out:Cabinet Scraper...
