hey everyone, welcome to this episode of the teen age woodworker. in this episode i talk a bit about coloring in sapwood (duh) which is a great skill to have especially in todays world where sapwood is not considered a defect in most woods. i also did a write up on the whole thing over at my new blog with Aaron Molley. also if you want to order Charles Neil’s finishing A – Z Beyond the books dvds or any other of his dvds you can do that on his web site. they are great videos ...
Wall space is a premium in my shop because of the multiple uses of the space. When I started thinking about making clamps I knew I would need a place to store them. I devised a way to put a clamp rack in front of my scrap stick area and hinge it so that it could be pulled up to the ceiling when I didn’t need to access my longer clamps. It’s raised with two pullies with the rope held taught with an old window sash weight. A clip hooks onto a screw eye at the bottom of the rack...
A while back, when my shop was in its unusable state, my lovely bride decided to take a sack of potting soil she had been using, and since she couldn’t find storage space on the shelving unit for it, she decided to leave it on the outfeed bed of my jointer, which quickly turned into rust. I had to clean this off… I did a quick write up on it for my blog this weekend, the process is pretty simple. I don’t have the bed exactly where I want it yet, but it is close enough for...
So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...
To begin, this is not my idea but I have adopted it as a very useful way to clean Dremel burs and similar type rotory bits.I began by turning a piece of 1”X1” plastic material (just somthing I had) wood also works fine. As the pictures show. I then drilled a 1/2” hole leaving about 1/2” from the end …. do not drill completely threw it.Then I bought a Dremel brass brush and put a slight crimp at the end of the shaft about 1” from the brush.I then drilled ...
There is no question about it, ‘at some point during our trek into the world of wood working we are going to need some sort of jig, whether it is a temporary one or a permanent go to Jig. Of course if you google it, you no doubt will get flooded with every type of jig imaginable, go to you tube and you find find countless video’s to build all sorts of nifty jigs.

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!
This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...
