83 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...

bench vice and starting out

94 days ago by Lazy_K | 1 comment »

Hi, one of the investments a beginner woodworker thinks they really need is a nice cast iron bench vice. Now, I’ve been doing this professionally since 1982. In @ 1994 I got a used /discarded slab of laminated rock maple with a vice on one corner. some school threw out several student benches with the vices on them. some local persons “salvaged” them from the dumpster. my truck may have been used and I got one…. I never use it.I had gotten used to by then a homemade v...

Game Calls #3: Sleeving a Duck Call Insert Video

95 days ago by ghost5 | 0 comments »

I shot a two part video on how to take an Echo insert, one of the most used out there, and cut it down to sleeve inside a new wooden exhaust end. I wish I could say it was my idea but it came from another good woodworker that wrote a nice how to but I decided to do videos for the folks that like to see it done. Here is a link to the first of two parts. This one shows how to turn the insert down and the next which will be up shortly shows how to turn the new wooden bell. Sleeving and Ins...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #11: |Step 10| Learn how to Finish the Wood

100 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

Step 10 is one of my favorite steps, because you get to see the true beauty reveal itself in the wood, and the grain patterns shine forth! I’ll admit it, I’m not one of those woodworkers who love complex finish recipes, but I love making it as simple as possible. In the above video I introduced quite a few of the well-known finishes used by woodworkers (there’s probably a lot more) but I encourage everyone to experiment and find out which finishes they like the best. My favorite, easies...

10 Steps to Getting Started in Traditional Woodworking with Hand Tools #10: |Step 9| Learn how to Fasten, Assemble & Glue-up Woodworking Projects

100 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

Every project has different requirements for assembling, gluing, and clamping, but these videos can help with some basic tips. It’s important to have plenty of clamps so you don’t miss clamping a vital area of a project. 9.1 Fastening I used to think that using nails, and other fasteners, wasn’t part of traditional woodworking.

100 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

People called “Joiners” cut joints in wood, in order to get the wood to fit (and stay) together. There are many, many different joints for many different applications. I’ll keep adding joinery videos below (I’m starting with the more basic joints and will move on to more complex joints), so keep checking back. Before watching the videos, checkout this cool woodworking joint chart! (credit: David Royce). 8.1 Learn How to Cut Dovetail Joints Here’s a very detailed 15 step video t...
