How to Make a Pad Saw (for cutting into a board face)

76 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In the above Video I show how I made a simple (and cheap) “Pad Saw”, sometimes referred to as a “Keyhole Saw”. I was building the simple, yet amazing Roubo Bookstand featured by Roy Underhill in this episode of The Woodwright’s Shop (click here for the video episode). But I didn’t own a pad saw, and I also found some missing details in Roy’s tutorial. So I decided to make my own pad saw with a scrap of poplar (you can use any wood) and...

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools.

83 days ago by bandit571 | 10 comments »

The sole was in need of some work As well as most of the rest of this plane shaped object The iron is stamped “Shipleigh’s” might have been from that St. Louis Hardware bunch?

Roubo Leg Vise Upgrade

86 days ago by BigRedKnothead | 22 comments »

A year and a half into the life of my roubo bench I set my mind to improving the leg vise. Dropping the 4 bills for a retro fit Benchcrafted setup was one option, but what’s the fun in that? I decided to go my own route and save the cash. -I’ve never been that crazy about the performance of my leg vise. It had a fair amount of play and did not spin as freely as my other vises. The hardware was the basic Lee Valley Tail vise that most folks use:-The big nut/flange was installed...

So yesterday we left off with a clean and reassembled mitre box with a few missing accompaniments. I was also left with a broken drill press (piss.. damn you HF!!!!!!).. Anyhoo.. the drill press saga will come into play in a bit but first I needed to draw up some plans for the missing tree from a photo provided by a fellow LJ. I blew it up on my computer screen till it was scale to my ruler and started mapping it out on some graph paper ending up with this.. Now…. I he...

Knew Concepts Fret Saw Makeover

86 days ago by BigRedKnothead | 22 comments »

I recently purchased a Knew Concepts “woodworkers” fret saw. I was tempted by the titanium version, but opted for the aluminum at half the price. - It is a great saw for cleaning the waste between dovetails. No complaints there. -However, I have to agree with some common complaints about this saw. First the….Red! I know the maker has been given enough grief about his choice of color so I won’t pile it on. Just toss me in with the other petty woodworkers w...

Restoring Woodworking Hand Tools #1: How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tools

87 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’ve tried almost every method to remove rust from metal parts! In the above VIDEO I show my favorite method for removing rust from metal parts – specifically traditional woodworking hand tool parts – but it’ll work for most other metal parts, like auto parts. Click here to read the original blog post with links. But first let me tell you about the other methods that haven’t worked very well for me: -Electrolisys with a car batt...
