Old wooden F-Clamp

01-15-2012 12:07 PM by Nighthawk | 3 comments »

Was given an old wood clamp with a steel runner the other day was a bit worse for wear, it was being thrown out…but but but it is still functionable. Anyway today I decided to give it a bit of a tidy up, I decided instead of replacing the bits I would just sand them as I found out as well the clamp is over 100 years old. So it would be cool to keep the orginal and with its battle scars and all. Before the sanding and re-oil… All I did was give it a light sand including ...

How to make a glut

01-14-2012 09:36 AM by daltxguy | 11 comments »

This is entirely the method shown by Roy Underhill but with color pictures and timbers which he has probably never worked with. What is a glut? A glut is a wooden wedge used to split timbers green from the woods.Made from wood, to split wood! Made entirely with a handsaw and an axe. Start with about a 2’ section of log 4-5” in diameter. This is my SUV carrying it back from the woods.Here I am use Australian Blackwood. I have about 50 of these dead standing ones which ...

what i've been doing #16: Hand Inlay of a Bowtie-Dutchman

01-04-2012 03:13 PM by Dave | 25 comments »

Here is a method I use for inlaying a bow tie.You can cut any shape you want, I just grabbed my bevel gauge, set it and drew some lines on a scrap of cherry.I cut the lines out and cleaned up with a chisel.I placed the scrap on the work piece and layed out the lines.I carefully cut just inside my pencil line.I then routed out the waste material with a plane.Then glued the piece up and bashed her home.Here is a video of the process and pictures say and teach a lot more.Any questions, comments ...

Basement workshop #1: The first bench

01-04-2012 11:41 AM by Nighthawk | 6 comments »

When my partner and I bought and moved into this place just over nine months ago, the basement was a total shabbles… the basement as now just a shabbles. I still have to save my pennies to get the floor concreted. But in the mean time still have a workable area just for tinkering. (we all like to tinker right) Not being on a huge wage and still really recovering from the shock of owning a home when we moved in I just slapped a bench together with bits I found about the basement…...

Medieval dugout chest . #2: This thing is going to destroy my truck .

01-02-2012 06:20 AM by randomray | 5 comments »

I imagine a dugout chest has many names , but I have also heard them called log chests in english . I like dugout because they are just like dugout canoes . They are made from a whole section of a log so that name works well too . The basic idea is you get a section of tree about 6ft “2meters ” to 12ft “4 meters ” long and hollow out the inside after spilting off one side . More detail latter . As for tools many of our traditional hand tool designs go back hundreds in ...

Replacement Speaker Boxes #2: Clamps are off...

12-30-2011 08:22 AM by Nighthawk | 0 comments »

Been a bit slack and well christmas and all that no excuse… anyway both speakers now glued and set, the back piece is not yet glued in, so we can assemble the wiring to the actual speakers when finished etc. Clamps are off and the long slow timely process of sanding to get them loooking good. This will also hide any inperfections of our glue up… Doh Have taped newspaper over speaker faces to protect them the best we can, so no dust can get in anyway. Also have done the same to ...

First off I want to thank everyone for your warm welcomes to Lumberjocks and thank Kelly aka Master Sergeant for giving me the idea to make my Avatar Sergeant 1st Class Orville P. Snorkel from Beetle Bailey. Being a retired Sergeant First Class from the US Army is a huge part of my identity and as my wife told me last night Sarge fits me. This is the first maintenance week that I have taken sense wood working has become my full time job. For those of you who follow Mark Spagnuolo on The Wood ...
