Spring Style Salad Tongs Cut From One Board

These are a great gift or a cool item to sell at a craft fair. This project reminds me of the Woodwright’s folding book stand only easier to make. Thanks for watching https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzux4dtnJOE

Wood Defect and Damage Repair #1: Using Epoxy Putty for Defect Repair

04-23-2018 02:04 AM by Rich | 10 comments »

When replying to posts about repairing defects or other voids in wood, I often suggest using epoxy putty. The problem with that is that unless someone has used epoxy putty before, it can seem intimidating. It’s really very simple to use, and once you play around with it a little, you’ll find yourself using it more and more. It’s also very durable and can stand up to wear and moisture. Epoxy putty comes in a stick and is made up of two parts, as shown below. Think of i...

Wood hinges, Incra HingeCrafter

04-17-2018 12:11 AM by MrLaughingbrook | 4 comments »

I bought the HingeCrafter and did one practice set of hinges following the directions as closely as possible. All seemed to go well and indicate I could get better with practice. So, when I decided on wood hinges for my current project then I thought I’d make a wood hinge inventory using current project stock plus some exotics scraps to improve my skills and not have to relearn and practice with the jig for a while. 3/8 inch hinges. A few comments may help someone on a similar eff...

Shop Notes #16: Milling Around

04-07-2018 04:59 PM by Steve | 4 comments »

For Christmas last year, I received an Alaskan Lumber Mill from my wife. I think she gave it to me as a form of self-defense; over the past couple of years, the neighbors have identified me as they guy to call when a tree falls and they need help hauling it away. I’ve accumulated a stash of California live oak, avocado and juniper (cedar). There are not a lot of lumber mills in my area, and those we have charge more to cut logs into lumber than the resulting boards are worth, especia...

Shop stuff #121: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 3

04-07-2018 02:56 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Well, I got it all done. A little longer video, but I wanted to get to the end of it with this one while I was editing. Man, you wouldn’t believe the hours of footage NOT shown….lol. Anyway, the build was a fun one and I tried a couple of things I have never done before. My son in law likes his present and has his guitar on it now. Of course, mine got first ride because I had to video it in action. All in all, I like how it came out. Pretty close to what I had in my head, w...

Sashimono #1: Japanese Sashimono Box - Traditional Furniture Maker

So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!

Shop stuff #120: Bent lamination guitar stand in Walnut and Ash Pt 2

03-29-2018 10:46 PM by JimDaddyO | 4 comments »

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Tool Restoration - Hand Planes #1: Sargent Hercules No3

03-21-2018 10:27 PM by Straust | 4 comments »

So since there were some questions on how I got from point A to point B on my restoration of the Type 19 No5 Stanley Bailey I took a few more pictures though I will have to better next time as I got a bit lazy. So here are the before pictures as you can see the tote is broken and the knob is damaged a bit as well. There is quite a bit of rust but the body’s paint was in good shape so I decided to keep it. Here is a picture of my setup for this restoration. This time I put ...
