awesome sculpting tool

I had never done sculpting until recently. but I have always wanted to try doing a sculpted seat. Everyone thinks maloof when they see a sculpted seat, but it seems it was common on many different styles. nakashima, windsor chairs. etc.so, I made a poplar blank , and started making a prototype.well. I did the rough shaping on the bandsaw, then clamped it together and started with a gouge and mallet.I am not that great at sharpening gouges, so I needed the mallet. after a few hours of sweating...

French Polishing. Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques. By Derek Jones

French Polishing. Finishing and restoring using traditional techniques. By Derek Jones

05-22-2013 11:54 PM by Jorge G. | 3 comments »

While I have done French polishing in the past, I would like to become more accomplished with it. I thought this book, given it’s name would be the one that would gain me that knowledge. Sadly this is not the case, if you are considering this book, do not waste your money! There are more in depth, better explained sources in the internet. I should have bought a Charles Neil book instead of this one. First, I do not know if it is because this is written by a British person, but the te...

I have 8 routers and this one is my favorite. I will confess that several of my routers are older orhave limited features and I’ll just leave them set up withthe same bit for a long time. Having a lot of routerslets you do that. An old Craftsman from a garagesale never got used for anything but trimming edge-banding. This Festool router is lightweight and it is easy to usewith one hand. It has variable speed, excellent dust collection and smooth plunging action. The plungedept...

Great resaw blade

Great resaw blade

01-29-2008 08:10 AM by johnjoiner | 3 comments »

Just after Christmas I got two new band saw blades from Iturra Design (no web site) in Florida. The blade I’m reviewing here is a 105” 3/4” woodslicer 3/4 TPI. (That means it’s variable, 3 teeth in one inch, 4 the next) for $21.20. Along with Mark Duginske and his Band Saw Handbook, the guys at Iturra are band saw gurus. I believed in them before, but I hadn’t bought into their recommendations on blades. I don’t know what I was thinking. My saw is a 3/4...

Affordable but top notch turning tool

Affordable but top notch turning tool

09-12-2010 05:02 PM by mckenziedrums | 3 comments »

I’m a relative newbie to all things turning… and while I haven’t ventured very far out of the pen turning thing yet I know well enough to try and make sure I have the right tools around for the job. As with most folks I grabbed one of the cheapie kits of turning tools when I started and while those work well enough when you keep the sharp I wanted to get a more substantial skew that I could use for other projects and that would hold it’s edge better. I debated on wheth...

Outdoor Furniture Protection

Outdoor Furniture Protection

05-30-2011 07:27 PM by japanesewoodworker | 3 comments »

This products is an OIL BASED outdoor furniture protection finish. The can says it will stain seal and protect all in one coat. If you read the directions, a second coat can be applied 30 minutes after the first coat has been absorbed. I have redwood benches in my back yard. I sanded them all down with my NEW Festool sander and applied this finish. One quart allowed be to cover approximately 36 square feet of benches. The price was only $ 11.00 plus tax in Calfornia (yuk !). I used...

Why did I wait so long?

Why did I wait so long?

I order all of my pen supplies from Penn State and kept seeing this on their site. I don’t do a whole lot of acrylic work, but when I read reviews on their site saying it worked just as well on a CA finished pen as a final buff, I figured it was worth a try. The directions on the bottle say to sand to 400-600 grit. Wanting to err on the side of caution I went to 600 grit (as opposed to the normal 12,000 I typically use on acrylics) and turned off the lathe. My sanding marks at this p...

Great table saw for the money

Great table saw for the money

08-03-2012 10:04 AM by chadgr | 3 comments »

I bought this saw as a replacement for another cheapo saw which packed up on me :( I only paid £170 for the saw and after putting it together it ran fin and everything was set up apart from the blade not being parlell to the miter slots, however a quick turn with a screw driver fixed this. My only suggestion would be is to buy another saw with because the that came with only lasts a few cuts before requiring sharpening or other operations. All in all a good buy. Chad Aged 14

I got the larger set of handles for a #7 in walnut. Without a doubt my favorite handles; I’ve purchased other custom sets, NOS, etc. The extra width just makes them feel right for my hands, and the quality is impeccable. You will not be disappointed.
