NEW TOOL! sort of

04-09-2015 03:26 PM by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

hi all ; new tool! The Idea for this I have thanks to St Thomas’ Guild (http://thomasguild.blogspot.nl/) I got this idea from their blog a long time ago and I have had this in the back burner of my mind for awhile, and it stayed there until I needed it.

Around the Shop #7: Practice Moldings with my Stanley #55

04-08-2015 03:28 PM by Mosquito | 9 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2ysB0kKuNM I’ve already posted this video on the Hand Plane and State of the Shop threads, but thought I’d preserve it this blog series as well. I’m using my Stanley #55 for the first time (Technically the 2nd time, as I did a practice with this iron before I shot this video). It was relatively easy, and this was one of the more complex irons. It uses all 3 skates, and 1 fence.

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #12: Hardware and Final Assembly

03-29-2015 10:39 PM by Guy Dunlap | 14 comments »

It’s finally finished! In this video I perform the final assembly of the secretary. I install the tambours and handles, the backs, and the drawer hardware. Yes, I did end up going with the larger pulls. There were some very good points made about the larger and smaller pulls. However in the end, it boiled down to my beautiful wife making the final decision. A nice coat of wax and it’s complete! Thanks to everyone who watched and supported me during this build! As always, I welcome your com...

Tae Kwon Do Belt Rack #1: Belt Rack Beginnings and Design

03-25-2015 01:32 AM by CharlieK | 6 comments »

A friend of mine studied Tae Kwon Do when he was younger and graduated up to Junior Black-belt. Now he has a bunch of colored belts and I decided to build him a rack where he can display them. I searched the internet for ideas and even got a few good ideas from the LJ fourm. I like the one that phamat built for his son I found similar designs through a Google search. I decided to make it a wall hung display rack because I don’t know where he would be able to put it if it were free...
