24 hours later and I’m back in my favorite chair! It sounds like some has already sourced plane irons in many different ways. Good! Bertha is ordering a brandnew blade, Derosa found some old plane blades at a local junk store and his Dremel with cutting disc is eager to go! Grittyroots has some old molding planes and wants to use an iron from on of those. Bearpie in Jacksonville has some old worn out metal cutting saw blades about 1/8” thick by 2” wide and 18” long. Good ide...
During the recent posting by Bertha on the hand planes of our dreams, the issue of wooden shoulder planes came up. I had some requests and PM’s to blog on the making of a wooden shoulder plane so I will give it my best shot. Be warned, I work in the metric system so measurements are in millimeters. For those who use King George’s thumb to measure, dividing by 25.4 will at least give decimal inches. I’ll gladly answer any question but have patience: No computer will survive in my dusty worksho...
I know that this has been long awaited.. and I hope that the delay has not caused some to drop out of the class… NO.. I am sure that is not the case… one things that woodworkers have…is patience… Miss Debbie wrote in the latest copy of Lumberjocks e-Mag… “Patience is a virtue” they say, and a woodworker often has to use patience while working on a project. I’m picturing the time spent sanding an item, taking the sandpaper to finer and fine...
Hi everyone. My extremely talented wife just wrote a groundbreaking new APP for the iPad. It’s the first of it’s kind for woodworkers, enabling you to play with a 3D rocking chair (and all of the separate parts) right on the iPad. You can order parts, take notes and do lots of other cool stuff including watching come never-before-seen videos right within the APP. I admit it, I am a gadget guy, and this is so much fun to play with it makes it hard to go back to making sawdu...
Hey not exactly woodwork but I do hope to use this in the future to make some really nice handles for some projects and other trim pieces. (hope this is OK) Really just an update on something else I have been doing and the construction of a forge, although I have improved it a little since. Hope you enjoy!
This was an interesting exercise. I quietly hoped I was going to transform one of these cheap chisels but it was not to be. They are so buckled and bent that even 3 nz dollars was too much to pay. See what you think any way.Andy.http://www.youtube.com/user/Aandyaitch123
Recently I have dabbled in making segmented bowls. I have had a few successes, but have realized that I won’t be able to reach my desired potential without getting higher detailed pieces. All this means more pieces per bowl, with more intricacies, which means more precise angles etc. I purchased the masters book via kindle, “The Art of Segmented Wood Turning”, by Malcolm Tibbetts. Being over anxious in learning the secrets and coupling this with the cheaper price has c...
A while back, I posted some pictures of the most difficult project I had ever attempted…the Maloof Music Stand. Much to my surprise, quite a few woodworkers have expressed an interest in tackling this thing, so I have finally put together templates and a detailed instruction booklet for anyone who thinks they’re up for the challenge. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) You can have a look Here Enjoy! Scott Morrisonhttp://www.finewoodworker.com
1 – Parting the coneCut the top of the cone using the tip of a cutter, or a saw. When using the cutter done very carefully using the technique of chip carving (press cutting, no sliding).I left the straight (where the reflective) so that the cone is better to put at the top of the bucket.1 – Tronzar el conoCortamos la parte superior del cono utilizando la punta de un cutter bien afilado, o un serrucho. En caso de utilizar la trincha, hacerlo con mucho cuidado utilizando la técnica...
