How to dimension lumber with handtools #1: Tools

09-10-2018 01:38 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

I started a new video series tonight on how to dimension lumber using only hand tools. I am currently woking on building a treadle lathe and have been busy dimensioning all the components for the project. The tools I am currently using are the Stanley Sweetheart #4, Stanley #62 low angle jack plane, Stanley Bailey #7, A square, Stanley marking knife, Wood river marking gauge and 3 foot long measuring stick. It is a little slow but a good work-out. My shaving pile his about a foot tall now. ...

01-07-2017 12:02 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

Winding sticks are a great addition to the handtool world for squaring rough cut lumber. You can make any width you want or keep multiple lengths. In this video I take a log, destined for the fire place, and turn it into a set of winding stick. Check out the video and make sure to subscribe for more woodworking.

Oak Storage Bench #2: Stock Preparation

02-02-2016 09:44 PM by ThomasLightle | 2 comments »

I prefer getting my wood in the rough for two reasons: The first reason is the cost. Rough lumber is incredibly cheaper than 4-side finished wood. The other reason is flexibility. I am able to “find” the best part of the board in the rough lumber whereas, if your wood is pre-finished, you are stuck with what you get.So here is my workflow: LayoutRough lengthRough WidthJoint 1 face and 1 edgeFinal width + 1/16” Joint to final widthPlane to final thicknessFinal lengthLet me...

I’m going to use this blog post for my wood species wish list for some recommended types especially useful for making scale furniture.

Green and Greene Style Clock #1: Opertation Mill Stock a Success! Well, Sorta

04-28-2012 06:30 AM by GodofBiscuits | 3 comments »

So I decided to build a Greene and Greene Style Clock after visiting the Gamble house in Pasadena earlier this month. To do this though, I was going to have to locate material for the project and the plans called for a lot of varying thicknesses of material like 1/4”, 1/2”, 5/8” 3/4” and so on. I could purchase the pre milled wood that any Rockler or Woodcraft carries but this would mean using material from different trees most likely and trying to get the grain and co...

We have a limited selection of hardwoods here in Alberta and the prospect of finding suitable pieces for turnings in stock with local suppliers is dismal.I have been on the prowl for a couple of years to track down and process some Manitoba Maple and last week I got pretty lucky.Quite by accident, on my way home, I noticed a felled M/maple(BOX ELDER) in a fellows’ yard.I whipped around the block and knocked on the door. The conversation went like this:Me- Are you going to use that w...

Why Square?As a complete novice I was always mystified by the idea of turning rough lumber into square lumber. It was hard to visualize, though I had read many articles. I thought that I would give any of you new to this aspect a glimpse of the process. The value: Start with square lumber = better chance of square project. Plus you don’t have to buy dimensional lumber from THE MAN. The VideoWe shot a little video/ stills of ourselves squaring stock for our kitchen cabinet drawers....
