Roy Underhill’s Tip for Tightening Loose Hatchets

57 days ago by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I share a tip that Roy Underhill taught me about how to tighten my loose hewing hatchet’s head. A few months ago, while filming a DVD in his school, I took the opportunity to ask Roy a question that I couldn’t find an answer to. He shared his advice, and I’ve been eager to test it out. He taught me that even though I already had a wooden wedge I could add a second metal wedge (at a diagonal) to add extra ti...

How to Make a Woodworking Hand Tool Storage Board

57 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show the woodworking “hand tool storage board” & shelf that I just designed and built to store & display some of my most used hand tools, including my chisels, marking gauges, back saws, try squares, dividers, and molding planes. In addition to using scrap to build this simple storage board (which hangs on wall studs) I built a shelf for my molding planes using simple 2×10 pine boards. The mo...

How to Clean & Oil Your Antique Molding Planes

61 days ago by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show how I clean and oil my antique molding planes. Of course, this method can apply to any wooden hand planes. My friend was kind enough to give me about 65 antique molding planes (thanks Bill!). Instead of spending a ton of time refurbishing them all right now, I thought I’d simply clean and oil them, and refurbish a plane when needed. I like to use boiled linseed oil (if you can’t find it at a local ha...

trying to re-invent the top

66 days ago by Jim Sellers | 6 comments »

You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 &#...

Biedermeier/30's Dining Room Table #2: - more veneering and sanding

67 days ago by Patricelejeune | 7 comments »

So Patrick did veneer the column.He first put the veneer on an kraft paper to hold the fiber ni place, we were not sure this thick veneer will like the bending. The article can be found there http://www.oldbrownglue.com/articles.html What you see here is were the seem was made, on the overlap, using a veneer saw then using the reversibility of the glue with an iron to finish the glueing. It cleans easily enough with water I have been careful enough to mark where the ring inse...

An Easy Repair: Failed Rocker Switch on a Shop Vacuum - Performax & Other Brands

68 days ago by DeLayne Peck | 1 comment »

I have noticed any number of shop vacuums are being manufactured under a variety of brand names with a large On/Off rocker switch on top. The switch is failure prone. Saw dust and fine wood chips can accumulate on top of the vac and work their way into the switch. That was certainly true of the Performax vacuum. Performax 4 Gallon 5 Peak HP Job Site Wet/Dry Vac Number: 2404827 that I purchased. It lasted a couple of weeks stationed by my lathe. Then, nothing – it would not turn...

How to Make a Pad Saw (for cutting into a board face)

80 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I show how I made a simple (and cheap) “Pad Saw”, sometimes referred to as a “Keyhole Saw”. I was building the simple, yet amazing Roubo Bookstand featured by Roy Underhill in this episode of The Woodwright’s Shop (click here for the video episode). But I didn’t own a pad saw, and I also found some missing details in Roy’s tutorial. So I decided to make my own pad saw with a scrap of poplar (you can use any wood) and...
