So lately I have been getting back into Japanese wood working but this time it is different. I am not sure if it is because I have better steel or better technique or both. I think the biggest part of it is that I am better at sharpening my chisels. I was never really good at sharpening when I was younger but now I can make a blade truly sharp. I am very fascinated with the planes or kanna. From what I have seen they are pretty expensive to buy too. If anyone has some pointers on building ...

Somewhere around March or April 2015 I’d just finished the Cherry Morris Chairs project. I needed to repair the lift mechanism on the accursed Jet Super Saw, that’s a whole other story, and had some down time. My wife suggested, with unconstrained directness, that I either cleanup the mess in the garage and/or while I’m at it do a refinish on our mesquite coffee and side table. Being loathe to argue, outwardly, I decided I could make an attempt. The cleanup could w...
Made from $12.00 worth of bronze bushings and a shaft collar. The shaft collar has a set screw that holds a 1/8” drill bit in place, so you would need to use 1/8” axles for your hinge pieces. The largest bushing has an inside diameter of 1/2”. The second bushing an outside diameter of 1/2” and an inside diameter of 3/8”. The shaft collar has an outside diameter of 3/8”, takes a 1/8” drill bit, and uses an allen set screw that takes a 1/16R...

I, as a retired person, generally fall into woodworking, scroll saw, as my past time activity. YES, I know, or should have, that shop dust and wearing some type of masks is important. But they are hot, limit breathing and are a pain. Well as someone with ironical asthma I have now landed in ER and the hospital twice this year. At this point I am still not cleared to be back in the shop. Well, now I have done a lot of reading on dust masks and respirators. Your first line of defense is to l...
