Weekend Pen Assemble Press

830 days ago by Owlcroft | 3 comments »

I have been using a Rockler Pen vice I bought when I first started making Pens. It is an adequate pen vice for drilling blanks; but a poor substitute for a pen assembly press. I knew there had to be a better way without spending a lot for one of those on the pen making web sites. So I did a little web search to find shop made pen assembly press plans. I found a lot of shop made pen presses, but none had easy to follow instructions with measurements. I finally ran across a pen assembly ...

Routed Out Serving Tray

644 days ago by ~Julie~ | 15 comments »

I decided to use some of my wood stock to make some trays. I started with a piece of wood that I needed help identifying and had help from fellow lumberjocks to do that. It turned out it was birch which I planed down and cut to the size of 25” long x 7 1/2” wide x 13/16” thick: For 3” at each end, on the underside of the piece, I routed out a depth of 5/16” using a bowl bit: (This was cleaned up afterwards with a sander.) Here you can see the profile ...

I would call this project ” From Flat Blank ( 25mm thick ) To 100 mm Deep Bowl”. It maybe ready early next year as I am very busy at the moment.

Here, I am going to show you the first steps befor geting it ready for the lathe to finish it.For that, I made a plywood tool r...

Cherry Mallet

693 days ago by terryR | 9 comments »

Hi everyone…as I’ve said before…you can blame the appearance of this cherry whacker on the new Mallets of your Dream thread. I’ve been using a stick of black walnut found in the firewood pile as a mallet for a long time…sap wood on one side, heart wood on the other…really sucks as a mallet. So, why not carve a new one? I have terrible joinery skills…but love to carve…so a one-piece mallet was my dream. At least, for the first try… I literally tripped over this huge ch...

Truing a table saw arbor to perfection

733 days ago by vipond33 | 11 comments »

Following up on a post by MrRon concerning “Concerns regarding saw cutting accuracy” I thought I would show anyone interested how to achieve pretty close to zero run-out on any table saw equipped with a pressed on or integrally machined flange. It’s worth doing. For this is the tool that for most of us makes or breaks the accuracy and satisfaction in our machining. If you run high quality blades (from any manufacturer) then this simple operation will enable you to get th...

Hand Tool Reference Guide for the new LJ

752 days ago by carguy460 | 3 comments »

I’ve been a member of this site for 219 days, according to my little stat tracker under my name, but I still consider myself a “New LJ”. Over the last 219 days I’ve learned more about tools and woodworking than I have in my 28 years of life, and I am extremely grateful to everyone who freely shares their knowledge. I’ve decided that I will take the hand tool path of woodworking for 3 reasons – 1) cost of machinery, 2) space needed for machinery, and 3) its ...

Rocking Horse #1: Day 1

826 days ago by MC | 3 comments »

I am starting a project to build a rocking horse for my son. I am following a set of plans from Family Traditions. However, before starting I am already deviating from the plans. The material list calls for 3/4 inch hardwood for the project. I came across an 8/4 piece of ambrosia maple that I quickly decided would be the material for the horse. The saddle and harness will be made from Walnut and the rockers from hard maple that I have not picked up yet. I have not found the wood yet that ...
