Hand plane restoration

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Finger Joints, my way #1: Making finger joints....

03-09-2017 06:50 PM by bandit571 | 7 comments »

Also known as Box Joints. Not saying this is the “perfect” way to do these, but, this is how I do them. First off, I get the four sides all milled to size. Nice when they are the same width and thickness So, for this little “How to”, I have these Pine boards. I made them about 3/8” thick, and all are about 3-1/2” wide.Boards can be about any size, but they need to be close to the same size no matter how thick or wide they are. I start with t...

100 foot cabinet shop #3: Dust collection!? We don't need no steenkin' dust collection!

03-01-2017 02:50 AM by Madmark2 | 4 comments »

Was cleaning out the saw and was impressed with how much dust accumulated even with a 4” line. The dust collector was not clogged but the saw dust simply doesn’t self cascade into the vac hole. So I had a thought that since the saw cabinet was filling anyway (and it holds a lot of dust), that perhaps I was wasting time/energy cycling the DC for every little saw cut. So I now don’t bother turning on the DC for the saw until I’m doing a cleanout. Discuss! M

Casting Hybrid Blanks in Resin

02-28-2017 12:27 PM by monkeyman83 | 2 comments »

I know some of you out there clicked on this blog entry hoping to read how I cast hybrid blanks. I am sorry to disappoint you. This post is looking for information more than giving information. I have recently been asked to make one of the very common colored pencil bowls and I have been thinking about the idea of starting to cast my own hybrid blanks due to the large amount of unusable cutoffs I am accumulating from my segmenting projects. ResinI have been convinced that using Alumulite ...

Woodturning Projects #5: Napkin Rings from the USS Shangri-La

02-25-2017 02:46 PM by Scott Seganti | 6 comments »

Here is a video I made making a reproduction of a napkin ring from the USS Shangri-La. This napkin ring was given to my aunt’s father who was a ‘plank owner’ aboard the USS Shangri-La (CV-38). When I first saw this napkin ring I immediately wanted to turn one. Not only do I appreciate being able to recreate a part of history… I really like the design. This is a case where form follows function. I’ve spent my share of time at sea and can appreciate the functionality of the flat section; ...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #3: The Lid

02-22-2017 08:28 PM by splintergroup | 9 comments »

The lid is the most “visible” part of these boxes. I’ve been making mitered frames with panel centers. Some times a mirror on the inside, other times I use veneer. Options would be to make a panel similar to the base or choose another arrangement that draws the eye. For this box, I chose a veneered panel with a mitered frame. As with the base, the dimensions of the inside of the top frame are identical to the dimensions of the box body interior (6” x 8R...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #2: The base

02-22-2017 05:44 PM by splintergroup | 1 comment »

The base of this box is where anyone can “go wild” with design options. The basics are simple, a frame with lap joints, filled with a plywood panel. The feet are simple squares. A pdf file with dimensions for the base can be found here The design allows for the base to have 1/2” of exposure along its perimeter with the box, basically it aligns flush with the boxes inside dimensions.A felt covered plywood piece fits into a routed shelf to seal off the box bottom. Th...

Exposed Finger Joint Box #1: Intro (The Body)

02-21-2017 07:20 PM by splintergroup | 5 comments »

I’ve had several inquiries for plans or more info into the details of my exposed finger joint boxes I’ve been building of late. Plans get complex and are often best explained in some detail, hence this project blog. Lots of pictures and details, hopefully clear and not too boring 8^) A set of dimensional drawings (4 pfd files) can be downloaded here It’s next to impossible for drawings like these to contain all the details. These boxes have simple structure, but a l...

View on YouTube Few time I decided it was time to improve my sharpening gadgets, so after some research I found this design of a sink a bridge. its basically two board, one on top of each other merged with a screw that also serves as lock to put the stones. In the end I gave it a nice coat of epoxy to make it waterproof. Now I have a tool that makes my life easier and that its gonna last. Hope you like this video. And if you want you can also find more projects and builds in my channel h...

A Day in my Summer woodworking class

02-19-2017 05:58 PM by Jack McKee | 4 comments »

A Day in my Summer Shop Class Below are three pictures of the shop I used for 20 years. The first is on the left of the shop as you are looking into the garage/shop, then center, and right. I liked having the space open to the outdoors. You may notice the steam engine on the table in the first picture. When I started teaching I was doing a science class and a woodworking class. The kids from the science class saw the woodwoking and said, “we want to do that.” And the woodworking...
