Hand plane restoration

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Casting Hybrid Blanks in Resin

02-28-2017 12:27 PM by monkeyman83 | 2 comments »

I know some of you out there clicked on this blog entry hoping to read how I cast hybrid blanks. I am sorry to disappoint you. This post is looking for information more than giving information. I have recently been asked to make one of the very common colored pencil bowls and I have been thinking about the idea of starting to cast my own hybrid blanks due to the large amount of unusable cutoffs I am accumulating from my segmenting projects. ResinI have been convinced that using Alumulite ...

Oahu Guitar Restoration #2: Removing the Back

02-27-2017 02:39 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 3 comments »

Video entry is here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3G8GxAHNmY The first step on this long project is to remove the back of the guitar. The reason we are doing this is two fold, there is a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to both the back, sides, and top of the guitar. If we were to try to do the level of work that is required through the soundhole we would be far too tedious and would end up with a poorer result. Removing the back allows me extremely easy access to all ...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

My progress in chip carving (2014 - 2017...)

02-19-2017 05:41 PM by FancyChip | 5 comments »

I like to make such collages at least once a year to see if there is any progress I’ve made in my carving or not. And what about you? Do you have a habit to track the progress in what you do?

Restoring a MASSIVE Underhill Gouge #2: Handle Making/Completion

02-17-2017 03:36 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the video is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aegPxohhUqY The handle for this beast was something that took a long time. I don’t have a lathe so carving the handle via axe, knife, and spokeshave was the only option I had. The handle design was inspired from the handles I had seen on framing slicks. The overall length of this now with the handle is 34” I haven’t weighed it but I suspect it’s in the neighborhood of 4-5 pounds. Ash wa...

It was made to comb mail #1: A mahogany foundry pattern

02-17-2017 01:01 AM by Patternguy | 8 comments »

A picture story about building a pattern. 10 years ago, I was the CAD/CAM guy for a pattern shop. We also had a plaster molding shop and an aluminum foundry, where we pressure cast aluminum match plates. 10 years before that, I was on the bench, building the wood master patterns that went on to become match plates. 20 years before that, I was serving a Pattern maker’s apprenticeship in an iron foundry. The master I learned from once ran General Motors, “Tech Center”...

100 foot cabinet shop #2: Accuracy, accuracy, accuracy . . .

02-13-2017 04:23 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

Wood has three dimensions and the table saw cuts both X (length) and Y (width) The Z (thickness) axis needs a lunch box planer. The table saw has the Incra rip fence and miter gauge so X and Y are covered. Z however needed some help getting the same accuracy as the saw. One of the benifits of digital gauges is that I can see the reading without squinting or having to bend down. I have a digital height gauge to set the saw height and set the router bits consistently. Repeatability is...

DIY tablesaw + dust extraction

02-12-2017 06:25 PM by FranksShed | 1 comment »

Hey everybody! My name is frank and I am a hobby craftsman from germany. I already talked about the build of my DIY table saw in my blog. In my youtube channel you can find the video for this build. If you are interested, just click here!But as I completed my table saw, I soon realized that I have to work on the dust extraction. After a lot of setbacks I figured out a very effective solution. The main problem was still being able to reach the saw (for the settings). So I made four removabl...
