Kitchen Cabinets #2: Progress on a Friday Evening

01-26-2013 01:54 AM by HRLou | 0 comments »

I don’t take the time during the week for shop therapy, priorities being what they are and all. But my work schedule includes Four-Hour Fridays, so I can get an earlier start on my therapy for the weekend. Last weekend I got my lumber rack close to finished. I’m a little worried about undertaking the cabinet project, and I’ve been procrastinating a little, but also looking for ways to hone the skills I think I’ll need before cutting into the wood we’ve selec...

Book Review #1: The woodworker's guide to hand tools- Peter Korn

01-24-2013 06:40 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 1 comment »

This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.

First Hand Plane Restore

01-24-2013 03:56 AM by BigRedKnothead | 14 comments »

Well, here’s my first hand plane restore. Like something out of a woodworking mag, a buddy sent me a picture message of plane. He found this plane in the rafters of his garage was just checking if I wanted it before he threw it into his scrap pile. Of course I told him, “I’ll be right over.” It is Bailey No. 8. According to Rexmill.com, it would be around a type 10. I decided to restore it Rexmill style. It was mostly surface rust, but the more I cleaned it, ...

Shop Tips & Tricks #1: Shop Tips

12-03-2012 10:03 PM by GnarlyErik | 13 comments »

In the past, most old guys like me jealously protected their shortcuts and tricks to guard their job from competitors. I’ve seen many old fellows actually turn and place their bodies in front of their work to keep someone else from seeing how they did something, and they were not too bashful about doing so either.
