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...

I’m 6’ 2” and about 205 lbs. Not obese but I certainly need to lose a few pounds. However I’ve had problems losing weight. I have all sorts of obstacles. My knee curses me when I try to run, my job steals my time, and my brain says WTF when I try to exercise. Lee Valley to the rescue! With the Lee Valley diet you are guaranteed to lose weight where it counts. Your 3rd point of contact will looks much slimmer as your wallet becomes lighter. The great thing...

The plastic tool box...(or A more likely than not, unintelligable rant about oil.)

11-02-2010 09:38 PM by BillieAchilleos | 15 comments »

I’m becoming increasingly aware that so few people know where their everyday things come from. I was talking a lady the otherday and realised she didn’t know that plastic’s derive from oil. It just wasn’t something she had ever thought about. When people talk about what will happen when oil runs out, they talk about petrol mostly. But they don’t seem to think about plastic. the components in their car, the circuit boards in their computer, the silicone chip that ...

10-29-2010 04:26 PM by WoodsmanWoodworker | 18 comments »

Here are photos of the tools i have thus far. Any advice on what to get please help me out, keeping in mind i only use human-powered hand tools. I plan to get more planes, files, rasps, a coping saw, a cabinet scraper, a drawknife, a spokeshave, a bevel, and a crosscut saw. If you know how to make any of these i’d appreciate the help because making the tools is a top priority, second is buying them. If i left any tools that i have out it’s probly something small like bits and, suc...
