Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #102: The Future in the Fast Lane

06-19-2019 08:50 PM by retired_guru | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since I last logged in. I’ve been busy dealing with a life running on its own mindset—no batteries needed, and definitely with no input or a ‘by your leave’ from me. Not all that unusual, I guess. Still, not what I signed on for. I’ll highlight the important bits. Recently, my father passed on. He had been predeceased by Mom six years earlier. No longer needed to manage his health care and needs, the wife and I made the decision to move across the state to be close to our...

Woodworking in Nairobi, Kenya #1: Contemplating the move and possibilities

05-30-2018 03:47 PM by LukeCan | 3 comments »

For three years I’ve been trying to do woodworking with only hand tools in a 12’x12’ hot room I share the the Laundry machines and chest freezer of an Apartment in Panama city, Panama (not the Panama City in Florida). I am getting excited though because in 2 months I am moving to a hopefully bigger space. This time in Nairobi, Kenya for a two year posting as a result of my wife’s work. The excitement comes from dream of the possibilities of living in a house (not ap...

Moving to Texas #1: The beginning

07-28-2016 10:38 PM by jburklow | 0 comments »

Hello, My wife and I are getting ready to move down to Texas and it is a very daunting task every time I look at my shop. It is going to be a huge undertaking to get all the machines prepared for moving. While we will have movers I will still have to break down the machines the some degree so they can be transported. I am wondering if there are folks out there who are or have been in a similar situation and if they have any advice. One of the biggest issues I will have is that since there are...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #2: Boxing, Depth Stop, Fence and even a nicker

06-16-2014 01:30 AM by Wally331 | 8 comments »

Pics will be in a few minutes… Where exactly did I leave off last time…ahh the main body is essentially done, and now all the adjustment features are all that’s left. Boxing The one weakness of cherry for planes is that it’s just a little bit soft. Not much softer then beech, but enough that a harder sole will help over the years. Especially on a fillister or rabbet plane where almost all of the wear is on a corner. I chose bubinga to box it with, because its ...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Don't you have to restart before you refinish? #1: Page 1 - The Restart, again.

06-14-2010 01:23 PM by Berg | 1 comment »

I’ve done this before. I have been in limbo for almost a year. Project limbo, shop limbo, life limbo. I have discovered turning during that time so all is not lost but working out of a 6×10 trailer is barely bearable. Still, limbo. Things are changing. My wife lost her job this winter, outsourced by three people whose names we cannot pronounce, which has forced us to reevaluate our situation. I am still gainfully employed. She gets to have all the fun. All this sounds like wh...

I Hate Moving! But I Love New Shop Setup!

02-25-2010 08:38 PM by SNSpencer | 3 comments »

I am moving into a new house and I hate the process. The worst parts are lack of internet access and of course, my enter shop is in boxes. I miss putting wood to blade already. But I am excited to set up the new shop. I brought all my garage cabinets from the old place. The best part is that I am going from a 1 car garage with lousy electrical to a two car, extra deep garage with outlets all over the place. There is even a 220 outlet. I may just have to rewire my table saw.

Big move to the country

07-28-2009 12:21 PM by daltxguy | 25 comments »

I know people move every day but I don’t suppose it is everyday that people move out of the city and back to the country. Well, maybe there are plenty of people who do that as well but for me it’s not even ‘back to the country’, rather to the country for the first time, ever. It’s the culmination of many years of dreaming and scheming. Some 30 years ago I heard myself say that I wanted to buy and live on 200 acres of forest. I can’t remember where I go...
