In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4

Tutorial: Installing Side Rail Hinges

10-06-2017 09:01 PM by Ron Stewart | 2 comments »

If, like me, you are new to box making, you may be apprehensive about installing hinges. The number of options is large and bewildering and, with hinge installation being one of the final steps in the construction process, fear of ruining a nearly completed box is a valid concern. I’m not experienced enough to help you wade through all of the hinge options (Roger Bean’s excellent blog post Some Thoughts on Box Hinges might help with that), but I can can tell you how to inst...

Just getting started

10-04-2017 12:28 PM by Archer72 | 9 comments »

So after nearly 20 years in the military and enjoying that life, I have been retired and decided to get back into wood working. I have forgotten most of what I learned as a young man, I had some talent for working with wood, but had a very lot to learn as well. Never had my own little shop I could work in, always had to borrow my Dad’s equipment and shop. So now I have decided to get back into it, and since I never do anything slowly or start out small, I have built my own shop in my...

Restoration of an Infill Plane

09-29-2017 02:28 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube I had gotten this plane off of ebay initially. The seller is actually selling her father’s antique collection, sadly he passed away at a young age from cancer and has left her his collection. I decided to restore the plane and give her a little video of it so she could see what was being done with the tool. I didn’t want this tool to just sit on a shelf so I decided to give it a proper repair and put it to work. The blade is a bit narrow for the body but that&...

Home Made Tools and Jigs #3: Shopsmith Tool Rest Upgrade - Cheap, Easy, and Very Effective

09-26-2017 11:53 PM by Jerry | 14 comments »

I know all of you Shopsmith owners out there that do any turning quickly get frustrated with having to set the tool rest position with an Allen wrench, it’s tedious and fidgety. Shopsmith’s solution, the Universal Tool Rest is predictably expensive at over $200.00. My solution was to make two wooden handles, tap them with a 5/16 X 18 tap, and screw a 5/16 X 18X 3” screw into the hole, which is about 1 1/4” deep. This makes adjustments very quick and easy compa...

Restoring Carving Tools #2: Dealing With Rust

09-11-2017 01:27 AM by Druid | 13 comments »

OK, this post deals with files rather than carving tools, but it looks like it could easily be tried on any tools. I recently unpacked some tools that had been stored away for quite a while. Among these, there were 2 old flat files that had become somewhat dull and clogged prior to being packed, and were now showing further damage from rust. One thought that I had was to replace these with nice new ones, BUT . . . somewhere, I had heard of a simple, cost effective method of “recondi...
