How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

The Etaux from Old Salem’s Shop (Article from Woodworking Magazine)

02-25-2011 02:44 AM by Tinnocker | 9 comments »

I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...

Grandma's Picture Frame #1: Thinking through the Design & Dimensions

02-09-2011 06:14 PM by spunwood | 1 comment »

My mother suggested that I make a picture frame for my grandmother’s 100th birthday. The party is in march, and the four of us (Stephanie, Beatrice, Elijah, and I) will be flying to New York. I looked online for table saw frames because I do not have much skil with or many bits for a router, and no router table. What I found was: http://americanwoodworker.com/blogs/projects/archive/2009/12/04/tablesaw-picture-frame.aspx This is a lovely and classic frame. The wood is beaut...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

02-05-2011 12:30 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...

Making a Violin #5: Carving the plates

01-16-2011 08:21 AM by RonPeters | 20 comments »

Ok, I’ve been busy with life and could only get to the violin as weather permitted, that is until I insulated the garage and installed an IR heat lamp which takes the chill off the air. This is the maple back. I’ve carved guides using templates I made out of aluminum. After aligning the guides to the plate surface it’s a simple matter of carving away the excess and blending. There are 6 templates. 1 through 5 are horizontal left to right with the last spanning the length....

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #2: Day 2 Late again!!!

01-14-2011 07:14 AM by Mark Shymanski | 6 comments »

I used to hate students like me who know when the course starts but still show up late, mea culpa. I was 15 minutes late again today as I had to go into Winnipeg for my uncle’s funeral today. Usually we can drive in and out in good time but today the roads were terrible, with semis, pickups and cars littering the ditches along the Trans Canada… anyway we got there and back safely although at one point I thought I was going to have to attend a smash up on a bridge, but fortunatel...

Tools and tool troubles. #4: THE PROPER CARE AND FEEDING OF HAND PLANES?

01-07-2011 12:15 AM by Roz | 12 comments »

Recently I received the entire gang box and hand tools that belonged to my uncle whom I barely remember. He was a carpenter and worked during the great depression as a CCC camp carpenter working and teaching young men the carpentry skills needed to perform their work. He repaired shoes and worked in the field judging from the tools he had. I am making a wall display with most of the tools and plan to use them occasionally. I particularly want to learn to tune, sharpen and use th...
