71 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...

It was a costly winter for me… froze and broke some very expensive equipment.It has never gotten this cold here in the Niagara Ontario area.. in my memory anyhow. I’ve noticed Martin has a new woodworking site up and running it’s good to see him back.Martin started LumberJocks years ago and we used to chat sometimes.You should all check out his new site….The Woo...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #12: Making Tea Box Dividers Of Venetian Blinds

78 days ago by Boxguy | 21 comments »

How do you install a grid work inside a tea box so it looks like this? Here is what the lift-out grill work looks like inside the tea box. This is what the lift-out grill work looks like outside of the box. The small compartment to the left makes a chain pocket so the stop chain doesn’t get tangled with the teabags... Why use Venetian blinds for lift-out dividers? By the time you plane, sand, and finish slats to make dividers inside boxes you have a lot of time and ...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #6: Fresh Air Supply Without Breaking the Bank

79 days ago by shipwright | 22 comments »

Back in my boat building days I periodically had the need to spray some very toxic paints. A fresh air supply is highly recommended for these occasions but they are very expensive for infrequent use. I found this today as I was doing a deep spring turf-out of my shop and thought it might save someone a few bucks. This is what I came up with to save my lungs without the cash outlay for a compressor operated one with filters and coolers. (The filters and coolers are to remove the oil and hea...

Chess board with outlined squares

83 days ago by MarkTheFiddler | 4 comments »

Howdy, Joe asked me to create a little Blog about how I created my chess board. I’m happy to do so. I’ll just remind everyone that when you are seated at the board, the corner square to your right is white. I’ll edit this post this week to add illustrations. Truth being told, the cutting board and box makers are far better at this than I. This design is just a basic cutting board without using end grain. I didn’t allow for expansion so the whole thing may just explode on me one day. Us...

The old time woodshop journals #48: Tool pickin', cleaning and using!

88 days ago by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

For the many of you out there that are always on the hunt for great hand tool buys at a Flea Market this one is for you. I would say this is also for the beginner or curious onlookers that may want to start using hand tools but may feel overwhelmed by the catalog prices of some of the leading brands that are making outstanding top quality tools. I know for myself at times I have to take a deep breath after drooling over a Lie Nielson catalog and seeing a hand plane upwards of 200-300 plus ...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

89 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...
