Another Hand Plane Rehab #6: Put a Fork In It

11-22-2021 02:58 PM by HokieKen | 12 comments »

Well, a mere 6 months after starting this series, I’m finally ready to wrap it up… So let’s dive right in! When last I left off, I had finished repairing the tote. So now it was time to finish the tote and knob. The tote had been sanded back so the original film finish was removed before I did the horn repair. I just sanded it up through some higher grits stopping at 400. The knob still had the film finish so I sanded it back. I still do knobs the same basic way I d...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #5: Tote Repair

09-27-2021 01:41 PM by HokieKen | 17 comments »

I fully intended to do the tote repair and the refinishing of the tote and knob in one post but shop time has been scarce so I’m going to just go ahead and cover the repair of the broken horn on the tote and circle back with another entry when I get the finishing done. Looking at the before picture of this plane, we can see that the tote has suffered a grievous injury. So let’s do a little surgery :-) First thing I did was to use a fine belt on my belt grinder and remove ...

Hi I would like to introduce myself

03-18-2021 11:55 AM by MarvelWoods | 7 comments »

Hi I would like to introduce myself. I am excited to join this forum. Besides my “about me” section of my profile I would like to see how of help to anyone who may be interested in the exotic woods that I have. As well as any questions that may arise about wood preparation. I own a top of the line vacuum wood kiln that was developed by Den Socling from PCS Vacuum Kilns. This has given much information about what it takes to dry wood in a heavily controlled environment and so forth. Don’t h...

Monster Wide Cocobolo Slabs and the Blank Give-away

02-19-2019 01:09 AM by Steve | 0 comments »

A while back, we brought in some of the largest 8/4 Cocobolo Rosewood live-edge slabs I’ve ever seen. It was fun to process them into parts. At the tail-end of the project, we made pen blanks from the scraps. Maximum utilization of the resource! View on YouTube

Alaska Cabin #3: The Live Edge Counter

02-06-2019 02:51 AM by Matt Snyder | 0 comments »

When I moved in to the small 13’ x 15’ dry cabin on the fire base in McGrath, AK it was nicer than most of the primitive cabins on base. Some of the walls had rough cut white spruce panels and there was a little hand made furniture from previous crafty resident firefighters. In the kitchen area the counter was a white painted piece of plywood braced to the wall with a simple cabinet underneath. I figured I could do better and thus began my first major woodworking project that started m...

The Box-From-A-Block Jig

02-04-2019 07:16 AM by Matt Snyder | 6 comments »

This is a jig I made that allows me to make a small box from any size block of wood (within reason). The appropriately sized frame pieces mount to the walnut sliders and the whole jig mounts to my router table. I was able to route out 13 blocks in less than 20 minutes. I decided to use the live edge slab from chainsaw milling the walnut I used for the sliders. That scrap slab had some cool spalting in it. Here’s a YouTube video of the build. I hope you enjo...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #1: In the begining

11-06-2017 06:38 PM by Bill Berklich | 0 comments »

In the beginning chaos reigned. Yep, that about sums up my “shop”. Or to quote my wife: “What a mess”! Easily 50% of my time is spent searching for a tool or hardware I know I have and dancing around everything trying not to knock over wood piles or tools. I had a decent shop once but after several moves and life changes I’ve never been able to actually pull together another organized workspace. Now I’m staring at another move in 18 to 24 months and ...

Pens with no Lathe or Drill Press

05-15-2016 02:01 AM by ShogunJimi | 1 comment »

In this You-Tube video, I challenge myself to making a pen kit without a lathe or a drill press. But, let me be honest, I just don’t have those tools. The slim-line pen kits came from Rockler and they were on sale over the holiday season. The wood that was used is Cocobolo. I hope you enjoy this video and make time to be creative. here is the link to the video: – https://youtu.be/arWuNuZQBik
