BURL BOWL / CUP #1: Making a burl bowl / cup

Got a bit windy out and an oak tree fell in my woods. I managed to save a burl which i cut with a hand saw and it took forever to get off. This will be my first attempt at a bowl.cup ( depending on size it finishes to be ) and once again i will use only hand tools. I’ll update it as i go. ENJOY !

screwdriver #1: Admit it, fix it, and move on... (now with pix!)

03-04-2007 05:11 AM by scottb | 29 comments »

First the bad news, just after my Bro-in law rec’d his homemade 6-in-1 mahogany screwdriver for christmas (and my nephew asked if he was really going to use it) it broke. Apparently the fact that I made it was a miracle, as I misjudged and left the wall closest to the business end very thin. First attempt was only a success in working out all the details in getting it on the lathe, and then off in one piece. Another second and It would have exploded on me. Like any good customer ...

goodbye to an old freind

12-03-2012 02:25 PM by randyb | 3 comments »

Last month I had to say goodbye to my restored 1960’s Powermatic model 66 table saw. It was my dream saw with a Excalibur sliding table, as the old Rush song said from a better thanish time. I spent a lot of time on putting this old saw back to work. I bolted it to the floor, and tried to “dust proof” it. As I was sitting in my shop looking at all of the things I planned on selling to clear out my shelves and make some room. The Excalibur sliding table was huge!!! and took a...

Contractor Saw Refurbishing #1: Good news: I got it home. Bad news: Now I have to do something with it!

10-01-2007 05:01 AM by slaphitter | 4 comments »

I found an old, well-worn Jet contractor saw locally through Craigslist. It came with a Delta Unifence, so even with some replacement parts and repairs factored in, I got it for a steal at $175. It was quite a job to horse it home by myself, but with the help of an appliance dolly I managed to get it out of its old basement and into my basement. I thought it might be fun for someone if I occasionally post updates here. And I certainly welcome all the tips and suggestions that anyone mig...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #3: Welcome to the service department!

03-02-2009 07:11 PM by Kevin Wilson | 14 comments »

A fellow lumberjock, “Cabinetmaster”, posted on the previous entry of this blog that he was sure Grizzly and their service department would fix this jointer issue for me. He couldn’t have been more right!!! I called the service department this morning and spoke with Philip. I was prepped and ready for battle! Armed with good details, 30 or so photographs, and first name basis conversations with many of the sales associates I spoke to on Saturday. But Philip on asked o...

Tool gloat ... of a sort

03-17-2011 03:30 PM by Woodbutchery | 7 comments »

Yesterday had a Delta 22-560 planer show up on Craigslist for $50, so after a call and drive out to New Caney, I became the proud owner. It’s been sitting in the shop, unused, for quite some time, and has a go of rust on it along with some general attention required, but at that price it’s what I expect. So. A while back someone had an entry about what type of shop you could put together for X amount of money. To date I’ve spent around $1000 American and have acqui...

The Woodworkingshow in DFW opens tomorrow.

10-22-2009 03:14 PM by Rick Boyett | 5 comments »

Tomorrow the Woodworking Show will open over at the Big Town Exhibition Hall in Mesquite, TX. Since I have the day off, I’m going to spend most of it there. I plan on doing a little write up on it with photos (if they let me take my camera in there). One of the things I really like about the Woodworking Shows are the classes they give. I’m looking forward to seeing the one hour “Hand Tool Rodeo” class where they’ll be going the use and maintenance of the di...

Grizzly Here I come!!! #1: The Plan...

02-23-2009 07:34 PM by Kevin Wilson | 9 comments »

Well kids, It’s been a long time in the making but this weekend I’m off to the Grizzly Woodworking Store in Muncy, PA. I’ve been there once before, and I gotta tell you if you’ve never been, it’s a real treat! The store is huge and loaded down with tools. My father-in law (Grampa Knapp) is going, of course. He wouldn’t miss it, and I’m very glad to have something like this I can share with him. And somewhere in all that loveliness is a jointer ...

screwdriver #2: replacement

04-04-2007 03:31 AM by scottb | 21 comments »

Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that our first generation custom made six-in-one screwdriver did not live up to your screw driving expectations of being able to drive nearly as many screws as the Titanic made Trans-Atlantic voyages. We take our product design and customer service very seriously, and have sacked everyone involved with the first product line. At considerable time and expense we have completely retooled our product line and would like to offer you a replacement fro...
