“Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” By Susan L. Hendrix and Paul “PJ” Peery

If you are interested in carving Woodspirits, and do not want to buy an entire library on the subject or you are looking for your first book on the subject—buy this book. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the most comprehensive book I have read or own, on the subject. I have all sorts of Woodspirit books, from a variety of publishers, and authors. It seems to me that no book ever has all the information I need – until now. “Carving Woodspirits: Beyond the Basics” is the abs...

This review is for the three tool set Rougher smoother and detailer in Medium and in small

Turning can be one of the most rewarding activities in a woodshop. There are many reasons for this but I will offer these for a start: You can quickly go from rough stock to finished project in under an hour. It is simple to learn to turn and it can easily be picked up on a video or from a book. The work can be quite beautiful and can sell for a large amount with a small investment. There are many other reasons turning can be your favorite task in your shop, and in fact there are many woodwor...

I like I-Box

I like I-Box

Got the I-Box for Christmas and finished setting it up yesterday. The pictures show my very first test pieces using a 3/8 inch dado stack. Once you understand what’s going on with the jig, it is very easy to use and it gave me near perfect results on my very first test. Set up takes about 15 minutes out of the box, but it comes with a very good set of instructions and a DVD showing the entire process from beginning to end. For me, now, the hardest part about making really good bo...

A goof proof sharpening system

A goof proof sharpening system

02-09-2014 05:54 PM by CharlesA | 9 comments »

I will admit at the beginning that I have never used the scary sharp, the Paul Sellers method, Tormek, or other sharpening systems. A year ago I got my first good set of chisels and started with some vintage Stanley planes. I stopped by my local Woodcraft and asked what they recommended for sharpening, and I picked up this Veritas Mk II and some Japanese water stones. Good: You don’t have to know a lot. There are lots of possible settings for every kind of chisel and plane. It...

Alone in the Wilderness

If not for the viewing of this very interesting documentary woodworking may have never gotten into my blood as strong as it has. This documentary is many things in one, part nature hike, part meditation, part woodworking…..and in all parts a wonderful journey of a man that decided to live his life his own way. Richard Louis “Dick” Proenneke (born May 4, 1916 – April 20, 2003) was a retired highly skilled mechanic living in Alaska that took his modest nest egg and decided ...

Works well after you work out the kinks

Works well after you work out the kinks

05-05-2009 09:43 AM by cmaeda | 4 comments »

I got this so I can make my own vises. I also bought some 1 1/4” dowels to go along with it. This does require some practice to use. The instructions are very sparse and the construction was kind of cheap. The guide that is screwed onto the threader was installed incorrectly so it was difficult to remove. The threader had some scratches and small gouges on it. The tap was fine.I tried it right out of the box. I followed the instruction, soaked the dowel in some BLO and then start...

Fastcap pocket chisels

Fastcap pocket chisels

I bought three of the four sizes and have enjoyed all of them. The four sizes are 1/4”, 1/2”, 3/4” and 1” with a sharpener in the same folding style. I had to skip on the 1” because shipping needed to be included in the budget. They have been put through tough knots and soft woods mostly. The soft woods (pine, poplar and old weathered pressure treated) cut nice and clean. The edge was not dulled very much by the knots, no visible flattening or nicks (it di...
