Grizzman, a1jim and David, Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern’t really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing. Grizzman sent me a verity of wood from Dark Walnut Plywood to Cedar Wood and one I think he refured to as Antique Pine, which all of these pieces will eventualy come in Handy, I’ve yet to decide on what to make wi...
Working on a clock today, I was happily sanding away making the side of the base perfectly smooth and 90 to the top surface when a thought popped into my mind. I thought to myself, how on earth did I do this before my amazing oscillating spindle sander came into my life, and then it hit me! How many other tools have I bought over the years and completely taken for granted without a thought to the ease and time savings it’s brought to my life? Before, I would have used numerous shop made...
Between a crazy work schedule and the Hocky Play offs my workshop time is suffering. Any other NHL fans out there? Any favorites for the Stanley cup? I’m hoping to spend some serious time at the Woodworking Show this weekend. It is here in Sacramento starting tomorrow. Hopefully this will give me some additional inspiration to get back to work on my projects and I will not spend too much money on gadgets. I’ve purchased a couple of items that have not been used since they ...
The “Island” is the land that accompanies Lethenty Mill. It stretches from its widest part at the Mill to its narrowest about half a mile up the Lochter Burn. It used to be very important to the Mill; water was collected in a long narrow channel leading to a dam near the Mill, and it could be released into a variety of channels under and around the Mill which were arranged to feed the water to the two water wheels or back into the water course (the Lochter) if the system was full and li...

Used mostly for cleaning out little knotholes that will be filled, often by epoxy tinted with lampblack, these devices can be purchased readily at American Science and Surplus. Another garage sale purchase: A small box with a web stretcher, a tack hammer (with magnetic ends), a bag needle and this high quality tack remover. Brand name is “G. W. Mount.” Very effective as designed, and it also works well for staples.

After much work, I had finally gotten my tools pretty much gathered. Now, I can’t find some of them, namely most of my chisels. What the heck? Of course, it’s all good. I had bought some Japanese chisels from Grizzly that, while they worked just fine, I just wasn’t particularly happy with them. The problems had nothing to do with the metal or anything that mattered, it was purely style. I’ve found that I’m not particularly fond of Japanese style tools fro...
