The Old Made New #2: Updates on the workshop

12-13-2010 05:42 PM by Jurg | 0 comments »

Well, I’m very late in my posting the latest in the tools journey, but I did indeed move the last of the family tools into my shop. I ended up letting go of one or two, a metal working lathe in need of tlc and a user better suited to that craft, rather than me relegating it to small time woodwork, it is now being used by a father and son who do metalworking together, a fitting home. The proceeds went into buying a Rikon Mini vs lathe, which suites my needs perfectly. And sadly the bands...

New Year New Tools New Project

02-02-2015 08:55 AM by ReubenD | 0 comments »

The Christmas paper is all gone and the tree is down and stowed. Now is the New Year and it is time to replace talk the talk with walk the walk. I have been slowly expanding my tool collection in the last couple years and this Christmas rounded out my collection for a half dozen projects I have been wanting to try. First on the list is a bar that I have drawn up plans for from a set I saw online. While I decided curves and bending wood was out of my class, I plan some ornate routing to make i...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #29: Vintage 8" Folding Handle Draw Knife Acquisition

02-14-2015 03:38 PM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

Yesterday’s lengthy (3 hour) appointment with my good friend and client yielded a surprised tip at the end of the session: Top - Bottom - I had shown interest in it when I first looked at her stash of vintage tools. I opted for my other choices mainly because I didn’t know if I would have cause to use this. At any rate, I’m happy to be its new owner and will clean this up and sharpen the blade for use. I would like to know who made this tool. The only marking I c...

My Gringo Workshop Project #1: Part 1

04-27-2015 09:03 PM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

Before, I start writing about my workshop project. I was looking for a workshop picture for my blog. I was surprised to find one from my alma mater SCCC Wood Construction Center. I was amazed that the picture was available and could be reused via Commons Wikimedia. Very nice picture and oh, how the picture brought back memories. Good, good times! Anyways, onward with the post! So, the idea for this post comes in connection with the previous post about the Woodies. When I started thinki...

Setting Up Shop #3: A few of my favorite tools...so far.

11-10-2008 11:05 PM by David A. P. | 0 comments »

Being supremely lazy, and having already made some pithy and amusing (at least, amusing to me) comments on a list of my favorite tools—at least, at the point that I wrote it up—I’m going to link to my Amazon Listmania list here. I’ve gotten stuff since then, of course, and I have even more interesting and fun stuff to say…but that will be in the next (-ish) post. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful!
