Restoring a MASSIVE Underhill Gouge #2: Handle Making/Completion

02-17-2017 03:36 AM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

If you prefer not to read, the video is here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aegPxohhUqY The handle for this beast was something that took a long time. I don’t have a lathe so carving the handle via axe, knife, and spokeshave was the only option I had. The handle design was inspired from the handles I had seen on framing slicks. The overall length of this now with the handle is 34” I haven’t weighed it but I suspect it’s in the neighborhood of 4-5 pounds. Ash wa...

But I recently discovered a historical 18th century workbench that was resurrected from the past by Will Myers, an instructor at Roy Underhill’s The Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro, North Carolina.

Tool Tote for Tyler - #7: Finishing... the tool tote...

05-17-2012 12:12 AM by Joe Lyddon | 8 comments »

Better late than Never… OK, it’s time for the Finishing part! Finally!! 1. I gave ALL Parts a few coats of BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil as from Home D). This took a little time because I had to wait 2-4 days after each coat to be sure it cured good before putting another coat on them. 2.
