Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

Renovate Wood & Transitional Planes Video

3 days ago by Vincent Nocito | 0 comments »

I picked up the video at the Woodworking Show after Bob completed his seminar. The video is about 80 minutes long and goes through the steps needed to bring wood bodied and transitional planes back to life. Topics include, rust removal, Japanning, flattening, tuning and building a complete replacement body. There are additional PDF files on the disk that have templates for making throat patches, totes, and new wood bodies. This DVD is a good resource for anyone starting out restoring wood...

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

Local school just getting started: Worth the Effort

49 days ago by Donna Menke | 7 comments »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FToA4gh6Ths&feature=youtu.beThis school recently opened not far from where I live. I attended one of their ‘Free Friday’ classes and both learned a lot and enjoyed myself. The teacher has lots of enthusiasm and knowledge; and since he was a school teacher, he knows how to teach.The environment is extra friendly and the equipment first rate. A lot of thought went into setting this place up, and they did all the work themselves.I was there when th...

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

Festool Cabinet Construction-Lebanon, IN

99 days ago by tturner | 5 comments »

I recently attended the Festool Cabinet Construction training in Lebanon, IN. It was fantastic! We weren’t given a sales pitch on all the tools they make and sell, but were genuinely guided and coached on how to make frame and frameless cabinets using all Festool equipment. Ive never been in a shop that didn’t have a table saw or jointer or floor planer. Didn’t need it. Unbelievable. I own almost all the Festool stuff and have for about 5 years now and learned how to get mor...

Review of Instruction offered at Lonnie Bird's School of Fine Woodworking

Review of Instruction offered at Lonnie Bird's School of Fine Woodworking

244 days ago by Lyn | 8 comments »

Several years ago, I became interested in woodworking. I liked the idea of working with my hands and having something beautiful to give as a gift or pass down to the next generation. Since I didn’t have the slightest idea how to begin, I thought I would take a class. I found Lonnie’s school, and it was only about a 6-7 hour drive for me, I signed up for the Woodworking Essentials class. We made a shaker table, and I was hooked. Since then, I have taken three other classes at the s...

Live Edge Table

Live Edge Table

357 days ago by Justin57 | 11 comments »

I recently went to visit with my friend Charles Neil (New Market, VA), at his shop. Our friend Jim Pell was there building a corner cabinet and during my visit I went with Jim to C.P. Johnson Lumber (Elkwood, VA), to pick out some tiger maple. While there CP found me a very nice slab of cherry (8/4×17” x 7’), so I bought it with the intent to make a sofa table with a live edge look. With assistance and input from Charles, I spent 2 days carving the top, 2 days carving the ...

Charles Neil Finishing Workshop

Charles Neil Finishing Workshop

358 days ago by zzzzdoc | 12 comments »

I just got back home from attending Charles Neil’s Finishing workshop at his shop in New Market, Virginia (which may not be the end of the Earth, but you can see it from there. ;) The workshop was three days, giving him an opportunity to lecture us on many topics, and more importantly gave us plenty of hands-on time to spray finishes, screw up, and more importantly learn from our mistakes how to do it correctly. Charles suggested that we each bring our own guns and turbines, which ...

The Wood Whisperer Split Roubo Guild Build

The Wood Whisperer Split Roubo Guild Build

404 days ago by lysdexic | 17 comments »

I am surprised that there has not been a review of TWW guild posted before. I am a novice wood worker and last spring I decided it was time to build my first workbench. I dont plan on building more than one of these, so I decided to build the best one that I could. After doing all the obligatory research by reading Schwarz’s book, Landis’ book and reading all I could here on LJ’s, I still didn’t feel I had the skills to pull this off. So, I joined the TWW guild spec...

Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking

If you have been building furniture and other woodworking projects as a hobby and think you have a really good grasp of woodworking, think again. I had been designing my own pieces, building from plans and taking on various projects over the years. My humble workshop contains lots of hand and power tools and budgets being what they are, it may never be a dream shop. But projects do get done, with kudos from family and friends. I was the fortunate recipient of some gift cards to the Wood...

A good time is had by all

553 days ago by Earlextech | 4 comments »

I worked the WIA show this past weekend in Pasadena, Ca. showing the Earlex tools in a booth and also running a seminar titled “HVLP Spray finishing made simple” which was well attended by many of my woodworking friends, customers and newbies trying to figure things out. Overall the show was a success, the woodworking TV stars and authors had great attendance in the building next door to the trade show area. It would have been nice if everything could have been in the same buildin...
