Shop Skills #2: Card Scrapers the Video!

12-29-2008 03:43 AM by Todd A. Clippinger | 54 comments »

It’s Finally Here! I have completed my first feature woodworking video. This video shows how I sharpen my card scrapers. It is a simple process and I kept the instruction simple with some close-up video action. I hope this post goes smooth, it has taken me all day to figure out how to finish up the video and 3 attempts to get it online. So this is a pretty big moment. I can work on polished video later but I have to start somewhere. I hope that this video on sharpening ca...

That glass smooth finish

09-19-2011 10:17 PM by Ricksfaith | 2 comments »

There are probably multiple ways to do that glass smooth finish on wood. I’ve always known it as being a piano finish… the kind of finish one would see on fine and expensive pianos. I’ve always liked the appearance and duplicating that finish was at first a mystery to me, especially on wood. I’m basically self taught in woodworking and doing finishes on wood was trial and error. Believe me when I say ‘ERROR’! I’ve made a few along the way. I learned allot a...

Plans or No Plans?

05-11-2010 07:28 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 8 comments »

Last month I posted an article titled Old School V. New School, I have received lots of great comments and emails from this article and really enjoyed writing it as it made me think a lot about my grandfather and father. One of the last comments mentioned the difference between computer designed furniture and cabinets as compared to woodworker designed. This is a subject that I have been interested in for some time. As a project manager for a national multi-family builder I built on a ve...

This week I give a brief look to the inside of what WOOD Magazine has to offer. I hope you enjoy, find this useful, and let me know if there is anything I should change. Look forward to next weeks Tuesday Tool Time.

True to my word, I write this after having looked at RJ’s workshop. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s purdy! It’s also easy to see how I came up with the topic. There’s a healthy mixture in lumberjocks from what I can tell; hobbiests, professionals, and professional hobbiests. The income range is nicely mixed as well (from hand-crafters to minimal power tools to seemingly gluttonous overloads ;-)), so that we all get a chance to see what someone els...

So many pies; So few fingers (post continued)

08-21-2013 01:01 PM by JustaLilJoinery | 2 comments »

I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin ...

TWO-COLOR CONCEPT #2: Hexagonal Box - Part 2

11-09-2012 08:06 AM by BertFlores58 | 3 comments »

For the second time that I have to continue the making of hexabox under the two tone concept. The first part ended in the mitering using a 45 degree chamfering bit by router manually. STEP 4. The Assembly After routing and ready for assemble.. Notice the gap caused by using the 45 degree instead of the 60 degree.. I need to caulk it with 30 degree wedges. The priority is the sides have to be erected perpendicular and insert the caulking pieces so I have to make glue the bottom ...

In the immortal words of Randy Newman: Maybe I'm Doing It Wrong

01-21-2010 12:42 AM by tbreland | 6 comments »

My router keeps trying to kill me. I don’t know if it’s my fault, or the router’s. It’s a very old Craftsman 315.25070, and every time I attempt anything with it, it either throws a bit at my head, or buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurns. It’s only a 1/4” chuck….I’m starting to think I am biting off -literally-more than I can chew. I wish I’d figured that out prior to chewing a template to pieces. Can anyone recommend a good starter wood. All I ...
