First Personal Shop #2: More pics...

06-03-2010 08:16 PM by KnifeL | 4 comments »

Earlier I posted some pictures of my first shop, as I have been relatively projectless here recently, and as there was some interest, I thought I would post some more. I took a whole bunch of pictures without realizing quite how distraught my shop is looking… but my girlfriend and I looked through what I had, and came up with these six. I hope you all enjoy them. Comments/questions appreciated. (Be sure to note my new slicks [one didn’t make it in the picture…] that I recent...

Drum Sander #1: From Micro to Macro

05-13-2010 09:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

Having thoroughly enjoyed making the Little Bess Ring Box, the smallest project I’ve ever made in boxes, I have decided to go to the other end of the scale. I’ve always hankered after a Drum Sander but could never afford the £500+ price tag. I idly tapped ‘drum sander’ into the search box and found that not only was I not alone in not being able to afford one but that there was a solution. Build you own. There are numerous ideas out there but the soundest seems to be ...

Dear Sweetie

04-19-2010 04:54 PM by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

Saturday I came in from the shop and went upstairs to see what my wife was doing. She asked if the floor had dried downstairs as she had just mopped. When I went back down I realized that I had tracked sawdust all over her freshly mopped floor. This made me start thinking about what a woodworkers spouse has to go through on a daily basis and decided to write this letter as a spoof. Hope you enjoy. Dear sweetie,I just wanted to write you this letter to tell you that I love you unconditi...

Amazing Tools #10: There's more than one way to split a log...

04-09-2010 03:42 AM by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

My recent battle with the cheap electric chainsaw, and subsequent redesign of my 36” crosscut saw’s handle have seen several people recommending I rive my huge logs with a simple wedge and sledgehammer system. I’d seen it done before, but had always thought the splits were messy – not an issue if I’m just making some turning blanks. I also feared that such shock-treatment of the logs would lead to microcracks and extra checking later. I’m probably just bein...

Mystery tools; non-woodworking

03-23-2010 08:13 PM by YorkshireStewart | 17 comments »

Here’s a couple of pictures of just a few from a box of tools that have just been donated to the museum where I do voluntary work. They’re mostly in cast brass. My thoughts were that they’re for decorative plaster work. Can anyone confirm? Any other ideas?Tiles are 6” to give a guide as to sizes.

Another Craigslist Score....Powermatic Drill Press!

03-15-2010 03:18 AM by Brad_Nailor | 6 comments »

Bam! I was lurking in the shadows of Craigslist and what did i see? An older gentleman selling all his woodworking equipment and moving into a smaller place. I couldn’t tell from the picture in the post what the make of the DP was but I recognized that familiar Powermatic gold paint! I emailed and the son who was listing it for his computer illiterate father sent me a huge picture of it and sure enough it was a Powermatic drill press. I arranged to go look at it, the guys place was abou...
