How to Choose & Sharpen Augers & Auger Bits

36 days ago by WoodAndShop | 8 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above video I share a tutorial on how to choose and sharpen augers and auger bits. The most important consideration when buying vintage auger bits is the lead screw. If it’s blunt then you won’t have luck in getting your auger bit started into the wood. And that will lead to no hole in your wood! You should purchase a simple auger bit file (like this one that I purchased). This special file has file teeth on the face ...

Roy Underhill’s Tip for Tightening Loose Hatchets

40 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I share a tip that Roy Underhill taught me about how to tighten my loose hewing hatchet’s head. A few months ago, while filming a DVD in his school, I took the opportunity to ask Roy a question that I couldn’t find an answer to. He shared his advice, and I’ve been eager to test it out. He taught me that even though I already had a wooden wedge I could add a second metal wedge (at a diagonal) to add extra ti...

Exploits collecting "free" wood #6: A better way to haul logs

44 days ago by Monte Pittman | 33 comments »

Up till now, I have done my own logging. Spend 5-6 hours and come home with 8-10 logs. It was a struggle to keep enough wood on hand and drying to keep up with orders. About 2 weeks ago I run across a logger who said that he could help. A year ago I tried to find a logger to buy from with no luck. Wednesday he rolled in. They’re 16’ long. Roughly calculated out to 5200 board feet (Doyle scale). My savings, about 70 hours of labor, no wear and tear on equipment...

How to Clean & Oil Your Antique Molding Planes

44 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show how I clean and oil my antique molding planes. Of course, this method can apply to any wooden hand planes. My friend was kind enough to give me about 65 antique molding planes (thanks Bill!). Instead of spending a ton of time refurbishing them all right now, I thought I’d simply clean and oil them, and refurbish a plane when needed. I like to use boiled linseed oil (if you can’t find it at a local ha...

Does there ever come a time when we quit making mistakes?

47 days ago by Woodbutchery | 27 comments »

I just finished making cuts on the head piece of a king-size bed frame and when I placed it up against the wall after the cuts were made, I noticed that it seemed shorter than the footboard piece. That’s when I realized that my drawing in sketchup, which I came in to reference, had said [6’, 6 1/2” ] and my brain had remembered [72 1/2”]. In this design, I can fix it and it won’t even be seen, but it’s annoying. Mostly because I thought I was past this...

Block Plane Restore

48 days ago by thiswoodshop | 0 comments »

I bought a few used planes on eBay a few month ago and the block plane restore was the first one to tackle. All these plane bodys and irons was very rusted and pitted when I received them. I posted an article Hand Plane Restoration on this. Stuff I used for the restoration: Wire Brush Sand Paper Wire brush wheel for grinder WD-40 Black Spry Paint – Rust-oleum Sharpening Stone I blew all the loose peaches and rust dust of with some compressed air. Then I proceeded...
