After a few false starts a bunch of obscenity and some finally clear thinking finally finally have the shop air conditioner working. Now I know what most of you were thinking it’s early March and this guy’s already talking air conditioning. Well I am in coastal Texas and spring is almost here. That means without air conditioning my shop will soon B intolerable heat wise. Anyway here’s the video I hope it all makes sense if you have any questions let me know. To refresh yo...
Video is here if you prefer not to read http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5lZ1XroRf8o&feature=youtu.be Part 3 of this series is a simple prospect of removing the fret/fingerboard (they’re different names for the same thing) as well as the neck. The traditional joint for a guitar neck to be attached is a dovetail, this one was no exception however it was extremely poor in it’s execution (not surprising considering the number of these they made and the budget they were mad...
In this video I begin to build the newest workbench in my shop. I have seen benches with a tool tray and have thought that would be a great idea. as I am always nocking tools of the workbench. In this video I made the base which weighs about 200 pounds. I have a unique idea for making the split top, that will be shown in the next video.https://youtu.be/lqUVBA8FS5A
Hey all! Thought I’d post this as a blog, since I haven’t really had any real use of the tool yet. I got a new Veritas round bottom spokeshave for Christmas and wanted to share some thoughts about it as it came out of the box and got some initial testing. I’ll post a real review someday after I have some project time with it. I’ve got a video here: https://youtu.be/FnD0mZgUqFo The Cliff’s Notes: 1. Its beautiful and very well constructed2. PMv11 St...
Hello Guys, Sorry, but due to potential patent infringement and damage to the Microjig’s sales, I removed all of the PDF plan files (as advised by my fellow lumberjockers). Here are two short video on how I made my clone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hFoFq-69uM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Ow9GhgB_o Finally, another simplified Gripper I made from plexiglass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De51MrQxHso Happy Woodworking!

In this video I Made a hammer from a rusty little hammer head I got for free from a flea market, the handle is sapele /mahogany and I think it turned out quite nice. https://youtu.be/BD5VkswXgkQ
My youngest son loves joining me in the shop. He has his own handplane (dulled blade) and a wooden saw. In my shop renovation I am taking my workbench completely apart and re-utilizing it for shelving or drill press table. My son was finally able to really help with dismantling the bench. Check it out and subscribe to my channel. Also check out the second video where I forge out some holdfasts.
Video link is here if you prefer not to read https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cJsGbmom-g I heard about John Moberg’s tools from a friend of mine who has both his spokeshave and his router plane. I decided to get ahold of the router plane for myself and see what it’s like. The fit and finish is what you’d expect from a handmade tool. This is a user tool not a collector (thought it looks quite awesome in my opinion) It’s similar to a Stanley 271 plane but the ...
Redoing the corner of my shop with the catch all bench. check out the progress and subscribe.
Things go wrong with the finishing process. I don’t get it figured out on this video, but I keep trying and trying. I go through the finish process, then strip it because I was not happy and start again. View on YouTube
