My current tools ( UPDATED )

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...

My Introduction to Old Hand Saws

02-09-2015 04:23 PM by WoodshopNerd | 7 comments »

Last year I had the opportunity to drive from Missouri to California to visit my 92 year old Grandmother. It’s always great to see her and visit the house that she and my Grandfather lived in my whole life. About 15 years ago my Grandfather passed away, and left behind a collection of unique tools in his garage that he had amassed over his lifetime. It was on this visit, last year, that I found an old saw hanging in a locker in the garage. I had no knowledge of hand saws at the time, bu...

Extremely Average #6: My Plan

01-08-2010 03:10 AM by Ecocandle | 9 comments »

Someone once said, “Plan your work and work your plan.” Or was it, “Plan your woodworking at work, so you can plan on working on wood after work?” Either way, I have a plan. Over the last several years I have spent a good deal of my time building spaces in the virtual world of Second Life. I have designed hundreds of pieces of virtual furniture and I want to learn how to bring them into the real world. I realize that most readers are now scratching their heads with their tape measu...

A Strategy for Woodworking #44: Hand Tools

02-23-2015 04:10 PM by Gary Rogowski | 2 comments »

Spending time with the hand tool crowd this past weekend brings to mind some ideas about utility. And why not? The right tool for the job depends on many factors like skill, economy, and cost. Not just the quiet of the shop alone gets weight in this decision. How many times does a jig get made on the saw and drill press in order to work later on by hand? These choices we make to use hand tools or powered ones are driven by our need to build work. Sometimes building the product wins at...

Extremely Average #20: Angry Beaver

01-22-2010 05:58 AM by Ecocandle | 7 comments »

Last evening, as if some mysterious and mischievous deity were looking in on me and saw how giddy I was over my new Festool PSB 300EQ, the power went out. Not just a little outage, one where the deity could chuckle for a few minutes as I sit in the dark with my unusable power tool, but a major ‘the house gets really cold’ outage. I went to bed. It was warm. I thought about using my new saw. At 7:37 am the electricity flowed into the house, bringing with it heat, computing power, a...

Extremely Average #4: Out Into The Cold

01-06-2010 04:12 AM by Ecocandle | 13 comments »

It is cold in Iowa today. It was cold yesterday too. It will be cold tomorrow. Despite this I realized that I hadn’t been to Home Depot, Menards, or Acme Tool in several days. I was beginning to get that itch. I needed a fix. So I bundled up and hopped in the car and off I went. I had a vague desire to buy some rare earth magnets. Do I have a project that requires magnets? No, of course not, I just really wanted them. The reason that the advertising industry is so successful ...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #79: The Dungeon Workshop - South Room Construction - Part II

10-15-2016 04:07 PM by technoslick | 4 comments »

The South Room will never make it in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens. For what I need, it’s coming along better than expected. I’m not done with the space. The East (left side) and South walls are damp, even wet, all year round, so I doubt I will ever stud up a wall. I also doubt the gold colored steel cabinet will stay there. For now it keeps me from bumping my ribs or head against the capped off gas line service coming out of the wall. You can see the capped end to t...
