Finding Wood

10-18-2014 01:49 AM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

[Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto]Where do you find wood that isn’t plain pine boards and studs from the local lumberyard? If you don’t live near a furniture supply house or don’t want to pay for wood for small projects, do like I do. I live in a mid-sized town in the rural corner of New Jersey.

I had just cleaned the rust off of all my planes a little over a month ago and already they were showing signs of new rust.

On the Workbench #1: Building a Crib

10-09-2014 06:46 AM by ontheworkbench | 0 comments »

I am currently expecting my first child (a daughter), and decided that I could build a better crib than most that I saw in the baby stores. This has been a challenging project so far (but it will be built to last). In shaping the legs I put together a quick tip for how to manage dust collection. More details to come as the project progresses.
