Sharpening Center #3: Contact Cement & Clamping Cauls

10-14-2016 03:11 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I selected some blocks of wood that I could use as clamping cauls once I spread the contact cement on both surfaces: my hardwood block and the side of the leather I was going to place on the wood block. One side of this strop will be using the rough side of the leather and the other side will expose the smooth. I spread the contact cement on both surfaces as instructed. Plus afterwards I gave the glue 15 minutes to turn or cure. Then carefully I laid the leather on top of the ...

Bench Planes #1: Wood River #4 Smoothing Plane

10-13-2016 04:48 AM by HappyHowie | 5 comments »

The other day while tuning up my Wood River smoothing bench plane I noticed that its tote (handle) was cracked. I called Woodcraft’s customer service number to see if they had a template or technical drawing in case I was forced to make a replacement. They did not have a template or a drawing. And, they did not have replacement totes for sale. I also could not find any replacement totes on the Woodcraft online store. To my surprise they mailed me a new one for no charge. Thank...

Toy Chest Build #2: Making the curves and glue up of the panels

07-07-2016 09:24 PM by 7Footer | 3 comments » Part 1: Thanks for watching, I hope you like it! Disclaimer: I’m not sure but I’d imagine there will be some Safety Sally comments about the placement of my stop when I’m cutting the tongues. Please trust me, I’m comfortable and know the limits of my saw and I respect it, in this situation it was acceptable because I was taking off such a small amount of material

Toy Chest Build #1: Laying out the pieces and preparing the rails & stiles

06-29-2016 10:25 PM by 7Footer | 4 comments » I built these toy chests for my Nieces (they aren’t technically my nieces but I consider them family!), we’ve been talking about it with them and their parents for a couple years now, and one of the twins is particularly interested in my woodworking shop. They always have to look for our cat who is scared of everyone and hides out whenever someone knocks on the door, but usually the cat is hiding out in the shop, and the curious kids...

SawStop Assembly #8: My Adapted Solution for Overhead Dust Collection

05-22-2016 08:07 PM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I found bonesbr549’s post on his solution to optimize the overhead dust collection on his SawStop. I was going to attempt to apply his solution to my new SawStop. I went to my local Woodcraft store today in hopes I could find all the dust connector devices I would require. I got lucky. I can put all the parts together, but I will add a rubber connector for my SawStop 4” port. I will connect the 90 degree angle bend part shown below with that 4” rubber connector. The p...

I met Rob Cosman! My first trip to Woodcraft.

10-14-2015 12:11 AM by Chris McDowell | 8 comments »

I went to Woodcraft for the first time ever in order to get some tools so that I can start doing some turning on my new lathe. Couldn’t have picked a better day to go. The entire store was 15% off. Also, when I walked in I saw a group of people standing around a workbench near the entrance. I recognized the dude they were all talking to and realized that it was Rob Cosman, the great hand-tool woodworker from Canada. He’s on YouTube as well. Check him out. Watch the video her...
