Tools of the Trade - The Evolution of My Woodworking Tools

03-07-2013 02:35 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...

Norse Inspired Plane #1: Jointing Plane

12-12-2012 01:39 AM by deutschman | 7 comments »

Hey guys and girls. I’d like to share the first bit of progress on the jointing plane I am working on. Its inspired by this plane a saw while researching Norse boat building tools. Mine is made out of Cocobolo with two pieces of Oak glued to the sides. I just got the shape roughed out today, and am still thinking about what I want the finished product to look like. Do I want to go all fancy and put the horse heads on it, or just keep it simple and functional. Right now I am leaning towa...

Shop Tips & Tricks #4: Centerlines - Finding, Marking and Using Them! (Part One)

12-06-2012 09:35 PM by GnarlyErik | 8 comments »

When working with non-squared and oddly shaped things – like boats, you generally need starting and reference points. The most convenient usually being from the “centers” of something. One general approach is to ‘work from the centers out’, which seems to work well overall too most times.  For a simple example, suppose you must install a seat in a boat (or, a seat bottom in a chair). You may know the seat width or depth, but ends are not squared to that. Working fro...

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #4: Where's The Crack?

10-19-2012 12:39 AM by hhhopks | 1 comment »

Finally, I got the finish completed on the tote. Well, I am calling it done. Finishing is just not my thing. So here it is. The picture below shows the repaired tote on my 604 plane which I have also restored. The objective of this blog is on the repair of the tote in a way where the repair is not obvious. No cheating here. It is the same tote (check pictures of the previous blogs). I didn’t resort to out of focus pictures. You be the judge. Below are close up pictures of the r...

Jewelry Boxes Journey #1: 777 days of LumberJocks

10-09-2012 12:50 PM by Sodabowski | 5 comments »

Hi guys, look what kind of trouble you have all put me into: 777 days and $57 later, this is where I am now. Buying expensive drill bits. And I’m loving it! The guilty one concerning the purchase of this monster 3 1/4” Forstner bit is Al, aka Boxguy, because of this . He made me realize that jewelry drawers can be as simple as a round hole in a wood chunk, which made me redesign a part of one of the jewelry boxes I’m currently working on. Hence this mon...

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #3: Re-glue

09-24-2012 02:52 AM by hhhopks | 1 comment »

The yellow just won’t work with rosewood. As JC suggested the epoxy should be used. I should know better. It must be old age. I have to learn my lesson more than once. The yellow glue didn’t held up to the test at all. After letting the tote to sit and dry for couple days. It snaps off with easy. The glue really never set. It was still soft. I had to start over. I ran hot water over glue spot and scrubbed with a tooth brush until all the visible glue are gone. This time I used epo...

My version of a Pencil Shave

09-11-2012 11:15 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Not long ago I had to come up with a way shape an inside radius. I would have used a spoke shave but I don’t have one. As usual I turned to Lumberjocks for inspiration. I remembered that our good buddies Mafe , Tim , and TrBlu made something called a Pencil Shave. After looking at their designs as well as a few others I made one of my own. Here’s what I used; two (2) cabinet door knobs, eight (8) brass spacers, two (2) pieces of copper tubing, one (1) pencil sharpener blade, an...
