Product Design #2: hewing .. axe? (the Hui)

332 days ago by RobynHoodridge | 2 comments »

We have a project coming up that will need rough shaping of branches into square-ish forms. So we’ll need a broad axe to so some hewing. However, instead of going to the effort of sourcing a hen’s tooth here in South Africa, and paying out my adz for it, we set about making one for ourselves. Now we don’t have forging facilities, so this was never going to be a re-hash of the master smith’s methods. We had an old blade from something like a guillotine. Which we aimed t...

Ok so it isn’t Tuesday, but I thought I would share another review on a great product. I really enjoy testing out tools and this one was one of my favorites.

Shop Tools #15: Stanley 45 and two boxes of cutters

334 days ago by WayneC | 10 comments »

I picked up two boxes of cutters for a Stanley 45. I have a couple of planes that I had picked up but needed cutters. The guy had 4 planes. One looked pretty early so I decided to buy it as well. Question to the experts. Is this a Type 2? Box with 21 cutters. I think this is a base set 1910 to 1920 based on number of items? Sweetheart box with 12 cutters (all present)

Shop Tools #14: New Plane - Bedrock 604 1/2

335 days ago by WayneC | 18 comments »

I’ve been wanting one of these for a while. An opportunity came up to pick this up on eBay and I made the jump. It’s main issue is that it has been drilled to hang on the wall. Not going to affect my ability to use it.

Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

356 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time). Please like, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

Spindle Lighting

360 days ago by Henri Monnier | 3 comments »

This ‘thing’ about getting really good light near and around the spindle on my CNC table has been a real PITA for me. I have tried various ideas from the web, and other places. Many worked reasonably well, but each had factors, shadows, etc., that I did not like. I think finally I have arrived at a very good solution that works like a champ, is easy to install, and the price is right! I have a “Kent’s” dust shoe on the base of the router (love that shoe!) but ...

Just PLANE HOOKED!

375 days ago by CFrye | 27 comments »

I am signed up for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap. Never have used a plane so I thought I should remedy that. Stopped at a few flea markets this afternoon… First one was closed, the second was a dry run and the third was, as they say, the charm. They had two booths with hand planes! The proprietor led me here: and I immediately thought ‘Those are in too good of shape to be in my price range.’ I said as much just as her husband showed up with two more from “The Tool Man&#...

1969 Craftsman Radial Arm Saw Project #1: The Acquisition

380 days ago by AngieO | 30 comments »

So as many of you know, I have this new found (well… it’s going on over a year now so its not so new) love and passion for woodworking and I am a self proclaimed wood addict. My kids would say wood hoarder…. but addict sounds better to me. LOL. I may not have every mentioned what I do for a living. I’m an office manager for a small business. I’ve had different jobs throughout my life (even been a correctional officer at a prison). But most of my life I’v...
