Life happenings #5: Off topic, but things that need doing

11-20-2016 06:25 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

It’s a work shop, not just a wood shop. There are things that need doing on a seasonal basis around the home. Getting the winter tires on the car is one of them. Now that the summer tires are off, I can give them a good cleaning and inspection. I am trying to make the chrome look as good as it can using a method I saw a few guys doing on You Tube. Not 100% successful, but the rims look much better. View on YouTube

Shop Tips & Tricks #19: The Art of Middles of Symmetries

11-20-2016 03:12 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

I don’t know why I did not think to include this as a part of my blog about centerlines since it is very closely related.

Shop Tips & Tricks #18: The Zen of Sandpaper and Sanding

11-19-2016 01:34 AM by GnarlyErik | 5 comments »

Many wood workers will already know these things, but for those who do not, here are a few pointers and shortcuts about sandpaper and sanding – things I’ve learned after decades of wearing my fingerprints off. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ‘NO SAND FINISHING’, and never let any smooth-talking paint salesperson tell you otherwise! Almost all woodworking projects need finish work. Most finishes require smoothing before the finish is applied. Normally, that means SANDING ...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #1: Breakdown and Evaluation

11-11-2016 07:03 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

I’ve been thinking I am going to do this blog but haven’t had just the “right” plane to document the process… until now. I know there are an abundance of these tutorials all over the internet so I don’t pretend to be breaking any new ground here. I just know we all find our own little tricks and tips so I thought I’d show y’all how I do it and hopefully, there’s a useful tidbit in here for someone. Here are some good articles from wkf...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #3: Bandsaw Jig to Cut Log Slices / Christmas Ornaments

11-08-2016 10:44 AM by Humus Workshop | 2 comments »

Hi everyone, a few weeks ago a friend asked me these slices to use as Christmas ornaments and I took the opportunity to release the laser machine. So far I had cut the logs by freehand but this jig is very handy and works very well. Hope make more jigs for the bandsaw in the future because is very handy to save money in blades. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/dKV1M2XVJ2s Thanks for watching and be loving!
