Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.

Shop stuff #159: The Roubo bench's vise chop

05-28-2019 01:21 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Busy times around here. Not much time making or editing though. It always seems that spring brings more things to do than time to do them in. I did finally get around to edit one though. I go through the process of figuring out and making the chop for the vise. Not quite a complete vise yet but I didn’t want to drag the video out too long. It is complete and that will be featured in the next one. Naturally, I go through some detail in the build. A friend has called me the “...

Shop stuff #158: Roubo bench part 12...Veering away from tradition with the long stretchers

05-10-2019 12:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Back to the bench build. This time I am putting the long stretchers on the base. I am also taking the path less travelled and making the bench my own by doing the joinery a bit different. I wanted to continue on with making the bench my own creation, while still respecting the overall form and function. View on YouTube

It's just an old rusty plane

05-08-2019 01:58 PM by Nor_Cal_Noobie | 2 comments »

Hey you guys. Sure you noticed I’m New, just wanted to show my plane score.It was in an old thrift shop with a capewell bench plane next to it. The rust hid these poor beings under the dust. I had to rescue them both up. I managed to get them with a slew of random other items for $30. You see, the only planes I have are a grocery store Stanley block plane, and a slightly larger wooden plane I made because I wanted one.Not to keep you waiting, here are some photos from this project

Shop stuff #156: A saddle of bone for an acoustic guitar.

04-20-2019 02:15 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

My first time trying this job. It is very involved. I made the blanks quite a while ago and have that video up on my channel. I get the blank roughed out and fitted, stumble a bit, and carry on. Interesting medium to work with and very traditional for the job. The saddle will probably be worth more than the whole guitar, but I think that’s just what you want for a first try at something. Having some fun with this one! View on YouTube

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube

Tools I Recommend #1: Lie-Nielsen Honing Guide

03-20-2019 10:39 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 4 comments »

My father was a wood sculptor. I spent my childhood surrounded by his tools and sharpening bits. He could put a razor edge on piece of cardboard and read grain direction from 10’ away. He could get a glass smooth finish on an end grain cut of the hardest wood with just a handful of nowhere near flat oil stones and a buffing wheel. He taught me a lot. More than I realize now that I am “up there” in years. One thing was how to put on edge on most any tool…by ...

Shop stuff #146: The bathroom reno...Building the vanity part 2

01-21-2019 01:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

A longer format, which I prefer doing. This one completes the vanity to a functional state. Not yet completed, but with colder weather closing in there will be less time in the shop. I am passing along some information that I have gleaned over time too. View on YouTube

I am finally getting a chance to get more up to date on things. In this video I start building a vanity for the bathroom we are renovating. Made from mostly solid cedar to go with everything else we have done so far. I go through the process of getting the basic cabinet fitted together. View on YouTube
