In this episode we build the router jig of my dreams! Part one of two… It’s a great show, you might even laugh a little. (Friend us on facebook, follow us on Twitter, and visit the Stumpy Store to help support the show!)
In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here. I discovered that I could simply reverse my small Bessey clamp’s jaw and it would push outward instead of inward! It’s kind of hard to explain in words, so just watch the video! I’m not sure if any other clamps can be reversed like this, but I hope it helps. Here is where you can buy these clamps: -Besse...
REASONS FOR MAKING THE CONVERSION: I have a very small shop and I couldn’t move the dust collection system (dcs) where it would be out of the way. The cloth bag filter sat so high that it would hit duct work in my shop. I also didn’t like emptying the plastic debris bag. It was difficult to remove and once removed debris from up in the cloth bag would fall to the floor. I searched out all of the information I could find on making dcs conversions. One conversion that intrigue...
Here is part one of my attempt at Tag Frids three legged stool. We begin by cutting the mortise and tenon and an angled dovetail. http://youtu.be/WeYBQMULTm8?list=UUoiFVDvzJX8tXXF5GsUPc_Q
In this video, Scott Enloe, a woodwright from Great Falls, Montana, gives some insight into his business and shares with us some good advice on the business of woodworking. You can see Scott’s gallery of work at www.ScottsBoatWorks.com. He does some pretty nice work building everything from fine furniture to strip canoes that have been featured in Playboy Magazine. Bet I got your attention now, don’t I? Strip Canoe…Playboy…it’s just too funny but true:) ...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dyn-kjrd1mk&feature=youtu.be Almost finished. Loving the complexity of this project. It is teaching me a lot of patience and perseverance.

Life has thrown some pretty nasty hardballs at us this past year and a bit and my kids and I are starting to recover. We we’re sitting in our rec room (do people still call ‘em that? :-) and my daughter said it would be nice to have a coffee table in front of the TV. I’d been trying really hard to think of something we could all do together so I half jokingly said why don’t we build one. Lauren and Paul jumped on the idea. We got out the tape measure and use...
In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...
A hand plane can not be complete with out an iron. It is the heart of the plane and does the work. In this part I create by using a angle grinder, grinding wheel and file. This still needs to be tempered and get a final sharpening.
