Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #77: Resurrecting a Coffin Smoother - Part I

09-29-2016 02:02 AM by technoslick | 0 comments »

My Dad acquired a beat-up coffin smoother a long time ago. Either he abused it or got it from someone who had. At some point he decided it wasn’t worth much, stuck it in a cubbyhole in his basement, and there is sat for several decades. I came along this past summer and figured I would try to make it useful again. I posted the following picture here before. This gives you a ‘Beginning’ picture of the project I’m taking on. I needed to seal up the blown out frac...

Husqvarna 394 XP Rebuild!

09-07-2016 02:29 AM by woodshopmike | 3 comments »

Hey y’all, it’s been awhile since posting anything here due to moving states and having the shop packed up for about 6 months. The shop is still mostly packed, but I’m finally starting to get WSM headquarters back up and running! So no, this is not a post that some would consider to have much to do with woodworking, but since I’m mainly a turner, my chainsaw is very much part of my process. Hopefully there’s something here that some of y’all will fin...

I received a new Rikon Grinder but it has runs in the paint, time to repaint

06-18-2016 02:21 AM by MikesProjects | 0 comments »

Super excited to get back at woodturning again after almost 20 years, yes since I was a teenager. Back than I did a lot of woodturning in my fathers shop. I used to make money with my turnings back then selling them locally & work of mouth. I also used to sell wooden pipes to the local smokers. I specialized in 18” long piece pipes & back then $25 was a lot to me, still is, haha. So Far I have purchased a used wood lathe, a g1495 which they discontinued the month I got mine l...

Request for tool donations

06-14-2016 03:31 PM by darkhollow | 0 comments »

Greetings fellow woodworkers! It has been a while since I last posted anything here, as my current job as Woodworking Studio Manager for the Chestnut Creek School of the Arts, in Galax, Virginia, has kept me very busy. I am writing this post today to put the word out that the school I work for is in need of woodworking tool donations. I know that as a whole, woodworkers are always excited to pass on knowledge to other folks who are interested in the craft, and our school exists to grow and...

I really enjoy woodworking and especially hand tool and turning. I really like to make small lathe tools for detail work. I use HSS in different sizes depending on the tool I need or want to make. In this picture from left to right, point detail tool, 1/4” point and round nose scrapers, 1/4” round skew, 1/4” double ended three point tool, small Allen wrench hollowing tool, 1/4” fluteless gouge. In this picture from left to right: 3/8” three point tool ...

Shop Smith #2: Where did you get you first look at a shop smith?

03-21-2016 03:07 PM by htl | 5 comments »

I all ways thought my first look at a Shopsmith was at the mall back in the 1980’s but these pictures beg to differ. I picked up a newer Shopsmith last week a 510 the ShopSmith 50th Golden Anniversary Edition 2002 man it’s all crome and shiny. LOL

Shop Upgrades #17: Rockler Demo and Unexpected Shopping trip

03-07-2016 04:06 PM by bkseitz | 7 comments »

Took a break from working this weekend—cool project at my day job—to go to a series of demos/classes at my ( local? ) Rockler Store in Tukwila, WA. I guess local is in the eyes of the beholder; Its about 50 miles away. I had put a reminder in my cellphone calendar several months ago, but only had it alert me “the day of” not the prior day. Fortunately I’m an early riser. Off I went. They had two great demos. Turning and Making Raised Panels. I was really ...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...
