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...

Hand Tool Shootout | Preparing Rough Sawn Lumber by Hand vs. the Machines

05-20-2017 06:06 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

My usual routine is somewhat hybrid, I typically do the bulk of the removal of material with the jointer and planer, then square it up at my cross cut sled, and finally remove the scallops from the planer with a smoothing plane, and shoot the ends to final dimensions to fit. But for the purpose of demonstration, I prepared these two overly dry (20 years in a barn) air dried Walnut by hand and then with my machines to see how long each process took. End of the day 7 minutes with the machin...

American Made #1: American Made - Episode 1 - Atlas 46 - Tactical Tool Gear

02-25-2017 09:26 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 7 comments »

The unsung heroes of the tool world here in the United States are companies that resist the pressure to offshore their manufacturing and lose control of their quality standards. Not just companies that ship a bunch of parts in to the US and stamp Made in USA on it, but products designed, sourced, and manufactured right here in the USA. Made with hardworking American Blood Sweat and Beers. This video series is going to look at some of these companies around the United States, but why not ...

Woodworking, is not "just" woodworking

02-21-2017 04:36 PM by Jack McKee | 3 comments »

Introduction When I was about 50 I wrote my first little book, Builder Boards. I started writing in the morning, and I’d have lunch around noon. Then I’d work for another hour, but that was it. I found if I was trying to finish up a chapter and worked longer, nothing would get done. After a certain point I could write no more. However, if I went down to my shop and did something, anything, those things I’d been writing often fell into place and I’d be ready to go ...

Woodworking with Kids, my first class

02-19-2017 04:00 PM by Jack McKee | 1 comment »

Woodworking with Kids, my first class The excitement and interest of my own kids about using tools, about building, and about woodworking taught me how competent kids could be and inspired me to volunteer to do woodworking at my sons’ school. My plan was for the children to arrive with an idea of something to build and I would help them build it. From woodworking with my own kids I knew enough to collect a workbench, kid-...

Adventures in Lutherie #7: I'm an apprentice!

01-10-2017 08:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

I think today I could mark as when I entered an ‘apprenticeship’ as an ‘Orchestral Instrument Repair Technician’. I’m doing piecework as I learn, but the owner of the shop wants me to be stationed there eventually. It’s better for business. I’ve got a steep learning curve ahead of me. the better and faster I work, the more I get paid. I’m repairing student rental instruments, so they aren’t going to be ‘restored’ to showr...
