How I built the Timber frame Staircase

12-11-2017 05:13 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

You can watch it be built on YouTube Or read about it below I built this timber frame staircase from reclaimed beams that came from another client’s house a few miles up the road. The beams use to support a pergola, that was torn down during their remodel. We templated the area where the stairs where going to go and brought it back to the shop and premade them. The install was fairly straightforward as they were already in assembled in sections. All that was left was to put them in ...

Underway again...finally #11: Pro Football day - some progress in wood and football

11-20-2017 12:51 AM by JohnTM | 1 comment »

Let’s get the “big deal” out of the way first. After a shaky first 3 quarters, we pulled it out in the last couple of minutes. My team now has 8 wins in a row! Geaux Saints! Whew. With that taken care of, I did a bit of work both before and after the game. Before the game, I worked on strengthening the table saw stand and raising its height to what it should have been yesterday. Nothing major skill-wise. Just the usual “do and re-do” process for me as I futz m...

Underway again...finally #5: Baby steps... or are they actual steps?

11-03-2017 11:47 PM by JohnTM | 4 comments »

Big plans, small accomplishments, a couple of them actually. I’d intended to actually start on the workbench today (sound familiar?) but got side-tracked, as is becoming usual. I notice that many people are counter-sinking screws (mostly for looks, but also for smooth-fit functionality at times) and I remember way back when that my Dad had done this with an over-sized drill bit just drilling slightly below the top surface of the wood. NO big news to you old guys, I’m sure. So I...

Cutting Thin Strips on the Table Saw — My Method

10-18-2017 08:00 PM by Rich | 19 comments »

Disclaimer: Using a table saw in this manner is inherently dangerous. No one should attempt these cuts without proper jigs and the experience to use them. There’s been some discussion lately regarding cutting thin strips on the table saw. Naturally everyone has their own way that they’re comfortable with and provides the level of accuracy they need for the task at hand. Basically there are several methods, the three most common being fence side, off fence side and a sled....

How to Set a Japanese Chisel Hoop

10-17-2017 07:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

Video is here View on YouTube Just a simple method that will work to set the hoop properly on your Japanese chisels. Just remember that if you buy a brand new Japanese chisel that they will NOT come setup and ready to use. You are expected to set the tool up the way that you prefer. If you haven’t done anything with Japanese tools this task is a great confidence booster and a great starting point for your skills. It’s truly not difficult and once you’ve done it a few ...

In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.
