The Etaux from Old Salem’s Shop (Article from Woodworking Magazine)

02-25-2011 02:44 AM by Tinnocker | 9 comments »

I was reading my RSS feeds the other day and came across this article in Woodworking magazine. As soon as I saw it I knew that I had to make one for myself! I have a Bessey vise that I got for a few dollars at the Columbus Flea market here in NJ. You know the old saying, you get what you pay for? Well I did! Needless to say it still served some kind of purpose for me, I tuned it up and made the best of it.When I looked at the article in WW online zne I started to get excited and w...

My new work bench

02-21-2011 02:42 AM by Tinnocker | 5 comments »

When my darling wife allowed me to use our family room as my wood shop I needed to make a bench. living on a fixed income causes me to be very creative in acquiring tools and materials. I have posted about Freecycle before so I won’t rehash that again unless anyone has any specific questions. Anyway I did some dumpster diving and was able to get a few old solid wood doors, which I promptly took apart and made a down and dirty work bench. It was ugly and a bit wobbly but it served it&...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #4: Tools complete

02-19-2011 09:55 AM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Finally back to the shop to finish off the final bits of the plane. I am following Mike's ( stefang) master class on a medieval bucket If you recall, the plane is being created in order to plane the inside of the staves to the curvature of the bucket. As well we need a ‘binding lever’ which will be used to install the willow band around the bucket once completed. Ive chose to pass on the lagging knife. There appear to be other methods available. i might regret this but f...

workbench #5: Dog Holes

02-14-2011 05:36 PM by Joe Watson | 1 comment »

Did more work on the bench this weekend along with stuff I had going on. Drilled the Dog holes in the top and used my hold fasts for the first time. I bought the grammercy Hold fasts back in late December. these hold fasts are great and were not a lot of money. working on the base next, the through mortises aren’t going to be easy.

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #3: I got sole

02-13-2011 12:21 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

Next step of building the plane to be used for planing the inside of the staves to make a wooden bucket – the traditional way. Today, I cleaned up the dowels and pins sticking out – paring it away with a chisel and then I added the sole finally. I used Mike’s (stefang) technique for measuring, marking and chopping out the opening in the sole to fit the curved blade. I don’t know if Mike was kidding when he said he chopped out the 45 degree ramp in the sole in 40 ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #2: Plane body glue up

02-12-2011 09:44 PM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

Some more progress on my plane, which will be used to curve the inside of the staves to form a bucket. I am following stefang's master class on making a bucket using traditional methods I left off here last time Next to make was the crosspin. I chose to make a wooden pin. I don’t have any plug cutters so I did this on my rusty lathe ( forced to sit outside but under cover for space reasons). I sized the middle part to fit inside the plane less 1/16” so it wouldn’t ...

Cello#4 back again

02-06-2011 01:34 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

High Folks, Its been a long time since I did the cello due to a mixture of dreadfull weather, work and family commitments but the journey continues.The back plate was glued up using fresh hide glue. It took about 2 hrs to accurately plane the edges square and get a good contact along the entire length of the joint. This joint is of absolute importance that it is done right, surface contact, glue consistency, etc. Normally on smaller instruments it is sufficient to rub the joint together and l...

This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at askhuck@hucksdiy.com.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
