Roughing it out (Wooden Sword and White Sword)

11-10-2017 03:52 PM by NadarCreative | 2 comments »

I decided to try and make some wall art pieces based on the first Legend of Zelda game on the old NES. I grabbed some pine boards and printed out some large pixel art of the items as they appear in the game, roughing them out on the band saw and sanding them more accurately into shape. I also have both boomerangs and the blue potion to show soon. This should be a fun ride…

I Never Had A Choice

10-10-2017 05:23 PM by 85GoCards | 4 comments »

Long story short, I went to a retiring woodworker’s auction and bought about 1/3 of the wood. I actually had to rent a uhaul to get it all back home. I haven’t measured every individual piece, but the estimated totals are: 200 bf of 11.5”-12.5” rough sawn, air dried, straight walnut. 15 pcs at 10’ and 10 or so at 8’ 40 bf of prefinished 4.5” x 10’ cherry 40 bf mix of cherry and walnut 4”-6” wide 140 bf of QS white an...

Boys and Girls, if you are only interested in bargain basement solutions, please jump in the lift and press “G” for “Going Down to the bargain basement”, exit the lift and go home without reading further. I am here to readily assist you in parting with your hard earned shekels without remorse, and if you are interested in a better solution (at a cost), read on. No… I don’t have shares in the product and the retailer is not related to the ”waterfowl family Anatidae&...

Handtool Basics #4: East Meets West - The Dozuki vs The Pistol Grip Back Saw

06-15-2017 03:21 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Whelp, looks like it time for another hand tool shootout, and this time it is time for a little east meets west action. Dozuki vs Pistol Grip Western Saw. I have always just kind of used both, I really find that they both have an important place in my workflow, but I took a second to figure out whats what between the two. This is really down to personal preference, and some of these opinions might just be facts about the ubiquitous Z saw and Veritas iterations of these tools. There are...

Cherry tree available to all

05-10-2017 05:51 PM by Robert417 | 2 comments »

Hello, I joined just to let interested parties know that we have a very large (2 1/2 ft in diameter) fallen cherry tree in our back yard in Jackson Township, North Canton, Ohio. The wood is too precious to just cut up or destroy by burning. Anyone interested in removing all or some of the tree can email me at rgeltz@neo.rr.com.

Help in inentifying my newest plane

04-13-2017 03:04 PM by EarlIII | 5 comments »

I recently purchased a plane on ebay and to be very honest I haven’t a clue as to the maker. I sam hoping to get some help from someone who knows more about hand planes than I do. On the plane body onj the mouth behind the iron the number 7 is stamped. Then behind the frog ant in front of the handle in this order starting at the frog is the letter U in a circle then made in the USA and then behind that is the number 8 just in front of the handle. I’m going to try and post some pi...

Beauty of Different Woods #1: Obsession

04-07-2017 03:00 AM by 85GoCards | 6 comments »

I am officially obsessed with different kinds of wood. Researching, looking for, and unfortunately for my wallet, buying. I cannot wrap my head around how many kinds of amazing wood I’ve never known of. Cocobolo, Bocote, Birdseye maple, how have I never known you until now?! I can only hope to honor the beauty of the woods I have purchased, but with limited “shop” time, I’m mainly relegated to thinking about, buying, and stacking different wood species. I...

Easiest Anvil Stand

03-15-2017 10:29 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I needed a stand for my anvil. I had just taken apart my workbench with all the 2×6 material and decided to use that. After cutting all the pieces to 23” I screwed 6 sets side by side using pocket holes. After I had all those done I screwed them all together in a laminate design. I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.
