Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...
This really helped me. Hope it helps you guys. I just screwed 2 pieces of wood together to form a right angle that my plane could rest and ride on while jointing. The result was 90 degrees dead on. Watch the video here.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/o7i91zj.jpg!
Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...
I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

So I’m at the grocery store this week and I walk past the light bulbs. I stop and look… I come home with 2 200 watt bulbs and replace the 2 75 wat bulbs in my garage/workshop. Wow. I feel like I’m on stage now. Can see everything nice and clear. Even if it’s warm enough to have the overhead door open, I feel well let in contrast to outside. Wish I had done this months ago!
I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise. Thanks for your time.
I had to get on here tonight and post a picture of the legs for my eight year olds new bed. I am using a design from Wood Magazine that I have made one change too and that was the legs. If you have seen the plans for this bed they give you an option of bunking the bed and due to the ceiling height in his room I will pass on that. They cut out where the mortises are located for the rails and then laminated three boards together to get the finished 2 1/4 inch thickness. So my change is the use ...
A while back, I put together a set of links of random finishing topics which I posted in my blog, called Finishing Tips #5: Finishing tips #5. One of the links listed coved the topic of Chemical-Ebonizing as I saw an interest from some concerning the procedure, so this is the time to single out that process. This process does not use dye, ink or paint, and can be carried out quite easily. As a matter of formality follow proper safety precautions such as wearing safety glasses, hand prot...
If you expose wood glue to black light, it glows.
