Splinters of thought #4: Adjustable Bench Hook

10-26-2015 12:27 AM by bearkatwood | 7 comments »

Adjustable Bench Hook Bench hooks are a very nice addition to a workbench. Sometimes for carving a small piece, a bench hook can be a bit too deep. Using a woodtek router bit (bit #942858I 14” shank) had for making jigs I routed two slots in a bench hook and drilled some holes for the hardware to slip in. I had thought about using a T-track inlayed in the hook for the adjustment, but I thought ...

Sketch-Up class with Bob Lang #1: Gonna get me some knowlege in January

10-23-2015 05:11 PM by eldercop | 5 comments »

The moment I saw Sketch-Up about 5 years ago, I knew I had to use it. Trouble is I’m not a very good individual learner. Nevertheless I bought a book from the Missing Manual series and tried to sit down for 30 minutes a day to learn this thing. I’m OK with pencil and paper having absorbed Jim Tolpin’s Measure Twice Cut Once book on planning and drafting, mostly because a pencil is simple to operate. But Sketch-Up with the ease of making changes, printing out slick looking pl...

Kanna Setup Video

10-23-2015 10:59 AM by Mitch Peacock | 2 comments »

Had a lot of fun producing my video on the setup of my first Japanese plane (‘Kanna’). It’s tempting to leave the entire process in, and much easier too, but for the sake of viewer sanity I cut out periods of sole and bed scraping, and blade lapping, etc. just leaving enough to show the methods. It still runs to twenty minutes, but hopefully anyone interested will stick with it to see the results! I can’t figure out how to embed it here on the page, but you can w...

I completed work on the jointer today and got it running. I had the camera rolling as I did it and got that all packaged up and loaded. I hope you like the conclusion of this small series on my jointer. It takes a lot of time to make them, but it is fun time. I am enjoying this combination of hobbies. Thanks for watching!

Splinters of thought #3: Mass Produce Your Wedges.

10-20-2015 09:52 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Wedges are very useful to have around. If you are using wedged tenon joinery they are a must. You can use them to fill a bad dovetail joint, hold an un-level chair from rocking while you mark out the leg to be cut, repair a bad tenon etc. When I make my wedges I try to make them is a mass scale so I don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a glue up. I have had that happen, where I had to stop in the middle of a glue up and make a wedge, very annoying. So here are some pic...

Splinters of thought #2: Getting Things in Perspective

10-20-2015 02:03 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Drawing in Perspective You don’t have to be an artist to be a woodworker, but a good foundation in perspective drawing can come in very helpful. I have the fortunate history of many art classes to pull from and I am often asked by clients to draw up a design that I have proposed. Being able to draw a design that will eventually resemble the piece you plan to build can make the process easier. I am a firm believer that a woodworker should always keep a journal of design ideas near...
