Step by Step Acetate Pen Turning #1: Preparing the blank

03-07-2010 06:51 PM by FrankoManini | 0 comments »

Turning pens is a lot of fun, and a great way to practice lathe skills while making something beautiful. This step by step will cover the essential elements of selecting the style and material for the pen, preparing the blank, and mounting it on th lathe. I don’t turn many pens. Usually when I do, it’s for a specific reason or an special someone, so I don’t batch them out like a lot of guys do. Not that there is anything wrong with that, because if you’re trying ...

Fixing Up a Stanley #6 #2: Doing things the old fashioned way...#2

03-04-2010 07:33 PM by LucasinBC | 0 comments »

The first thing that I did is setup a griding/honing station. I say grinding because when you are taking on a plane sole that is essentially what you are doing. I don’t have an 18” long belt sander, so this is the only way I could think of doing it. I found an ad in my local Craigslist listing for a guy who was selling his over-stocked granite tiles. They are 24” long, 12” wide and 3/8” thick. Most sharpening enthusiasts would say that this is too thin...

Fixing Up a Stanley #6 #1: Doing things the old fashioned way...#1

03-04-2010 07:02 PM by LucasinBC | 1 comment »

I should preface everything I am about to write by saying I am very new to woodworking and so I cannot be looked upon as anything but a beginner; I am no expert so don’t think this is a blog from a pro! A few months ago I embarked on a journey to build a workbench based on a design inspired by Christopher Schwarz’s book “Workbenches.” Specifially I am attempting to build his French-style Roubo bench. Long-story short, I found it difficult to joint and plane the ve...

Using the Leigh D4R

03-04-2010 01:41 PM by grub32 | 13 comments »

I bought the 24 inch D4R dovetail jig recently with the encouragement of my local woodcraft owner. This jig has done everything that he said it would and with more precision than I had expected. I am also surprised at how easy it is to get perfect dovetails every time. I created a video on how easy it is to setup from my experience. I am a hobby woodworker who is trying to make my shop time more efficient. That’s why I broke down and bought the best that I could find. I want this ma...

How I made the Snack Tote

03-01-2010 03:47 AM by LafayetteJack | 0 comments »

I have had some questions about how I made the bowls I posted in the Projects area. I thought a Blog entry would be the best way to respond. This one is for the Snack Tote. I created my own paper template based on the Wood magazine plan but sized to fit the 10” x 10” piece of wood I had. Each bowl of the snack tote is 4” in diameter and 1-7/8” deep. Placing the paper template on a 1/2” piece of MDF I used a circle cutter and made an Inside template. I creat...

Sanders

02-28-2010 06:58 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...
