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
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. I will call this notion ‘The Art of Middles of Symmetries’. Simply put, all symmetrical shapes by definition have a ‘middle’, or centerline. Stating that notion as a corollary to centerlines, you might say: “All symmetrical shapes have an EXACT middle centerline.” Take advantage of this simple fact by using it when laying out ...

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.

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...
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.

In this first issue of a series of re-creating a gaming table will begin with collecting the materials and the research on putting the project together.

The curator and the staff there were very permissive in mea...
