Headed to Class #2: Cutting dovetails

04-06-2010 06:06 PM by MickeyD | 4 comments »

I have been busy practicing dovetails. If there is a way to do it wrong I have done it, but last night I was able to make several “right”. I have developed “tennis elbow” with all the hammering with the mallet. It will be a good story to tell the doctor when I get home. We just bought a lathe and Kindlingmaker is having fun making lots of shavings, but I won’t touch it until I get back from class. The poplar practice table is put together and looks very presentab...

Skills Building #1: First Hand Cut Dovetails

04-01-2010 05:02 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 2 comments »

So, as a part of Marc S’ “Woodworkers fighting Cancer” guild build of the shaker table, I decided to treat the project as a skills builder regardless of how the end product turns out. If it gets trashed, then I’ll start again! The drawer called for a half blind dovetail, but we were by no means bound to follow that suggestion. So, here’s my first attempt at half blind dovetails! Not great, but despite the gaps, it was still a tight fit on the first try! I d...

Trying the Stanley No. 8

03-25-2010 05:33 AM by michaelray | 2 comments »

Finally got a chance to use the Stanley No. 8 I posted a blog entry about a few days ago. Gotta say it’s pretty sweet. I’m sure there are others that may be able to tune it to a finer degree, but when I remember the frustration of the first time I ever tried to use a hand plane it feels really good. And what a huge difference sharpening makes!! Today I was using it to even out the glue ups on my new workbench legs. I took a couple of photos to share. From Sawdust From Sawdu...

A day with David Ellsworth

03-23-2010 03:45 PM by Jon Spelbring | 2 comments »

After a busy weekend at Frank Klausz’s class, I headed out to Woodcraft yesterday for a day long workshop with David Ellsworth. Very cool. David is an excellent teacher. Knowlegeable (duh!), and very laid back. There were 10 in the class (I think). After doing a demo of making a natural edge bowl, we jumped in and started turning whatever it was that we wanted to work on. Some did natural edge bowls, some cut edge, and some hollow forms. I stuck to cut edge bowl – wound up ...

Building a mahogany jewelry box with Frank Klausz

03-23-2010 03:26 PM by Jon Spelbring | 3 comments »

Wow, what a weekend! I spent last Saturday and Sunday learing from Frank Klausz. It was just a 2 day class, but I think we managed to pack a lot into it. Frank is one funny, funny guy! So, here’s my impressions of the class – plus and minus, and a recap of what I learned (at least I think I learned). Overall, the class was excellent. We had 15 students, with varying skill levels. The first part of day one was some background on Frank, and some good tech info on wood, wo...
