Archive Videos #1: Sweedish woodworking and misc.

1842 days ago by dryhter | 3 comments »

I was at a blogsite and followed a link to some archived video. I spent the better part of a day watching and marveling over these glimpse into the past. I think it is the fact that these were utilitarian items made for everyday use and although some artistry was involved most important was that the piece function. These craftsmen developed the skills to economically produce a no frill product. If you can take the time to watch you will notice that there...

Originally I had planned on 3 drawers, one pull out writing desk type drawer, one open shelf and 2 upper shelves behind a door made from a very old leaded glass door. I did decide to make the drawers out of pre-finished and pre-cut plywood blanks and after purchasing the material ...

1847 days ago by kosta | 7 comments »

Yo whats up everybody now as most of you know I moved about 3 weeks ago I put out my shop tour last week.

Well I could use a cleat system which basically has a angle cut all the way down and it also has a angle shape on the back of the box and it hangs on the groove. The only ...

philosophy of woodworking #1: Some Principles of Zen Aesthetics

1848 days ago by Adam Weis | 6 comments »

I have seen many posts on this site that describe a particular piece as “Zen” and while this word is not used in strict historical definition, I thought it might be interesting for some of you to share a bit about what I have learned about Buddhism and how one might be able to bring some Buddhist attitudes into the process of woodworking. So contrary to the title of this little post there isn’t really any such thing as Zen aesthetics. Zen refers to certain strains of practice within ...

1853 days ago by patron | 26 comments »

for years ( 45 ) i have been using the jointer , and from day 1 , my shop master ( Lincoln Morinaga ) said that this tool was the most dangerous in the shop . in my work , i often have to joint 12’ boards or longer .with or without a helper , this is a tedious and risky task , as you have to force the board down with lots of pressure,to counteract the forces of gravity and increasing outboard sagging .my thoughts , have allways led me to using gravity in my favor , and letting my ̶...
