Moravian Workbench #13: Finishing Touches and a Close Call

06-20-2020 08:33 PM by Tom | 2 comments »

This will be the final installment, Lucky 13. I added a few finishing touches including a dust ramp, an iron ring pull for the drawer and a custom holdfast. I made the dust ramp from a piece of straight grained oak firewood. This is more of a nice to have, especially if you worry about debris in your tool well. I find it to be a nice convenience. Next I had a custom iron ring pull and holdfast made for the workbench by Eric Dennis at Roundhouse Blacksmith. He doe...

Arts and Crafts Bookcase #5: Glue Up Done

05-04-2020 11:45 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 1 comment »

After scrapping what seemed line 100 yards of wood, the glue up was uneventful. So far I am liking the design. Strong, rigid and full of light. The steps to get this far are in the video (part 3). Lots of detail, so be prepared for boredom…but viewer pain is reduced an additional 30% with this release!

Small Projects #30: Oak Tablet Case

05-04-2020 12:27 AM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

I made this last summer when I got the new Galaxy Tab. Up to now I hadn’t thought of taking a picture of itself in the mirror. Infinity mirror. The case is 1/2” oak and is 1-1/8” thick. 1/2” back, 3/8” dado and 1/4” lip. Each dado is 1/4” deep and have a couple of felt pads as shock absorbers. The fit is snug and the tablet doesn’t move in any way. The back is drilled and countersunk for the tablets camera. Countersink gets rid ...

Best way to sell Walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs?

04-24-2020 08:38 PM by MitchellM4 | 5 comments »

I had a good amount of wood milled in January. I have some time to do woodworking but not enough to get to all the wood that I have. I have black walnut, oak, and honey locust slabs. I am just wondering what the best way to sell it is so I don’t let it go to waste. I am located in Nebraska. Sorry if a post like this is not allowed. Thanks in advance!

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #18: Squares, Squares and more Squares...

04-01-2020 12:55 AM by Bill Berklich | 3 comments »

OK, I’m not a galoot. I use hand tools to augment my power tools. While the quite whisper of a sharp plane on pine like the silent fall of heavy snow is wondrous, the screaming song of an 6 inch jointer and instant piles of wood shavings fits me better. That said I do like a well made tool. Earlier I rehandled a Two Cherries backsaw and honestly I like it better than my Veritas Dovetail saw – more on that later. It got me to thinking about other tools I could make. And then...

Working up the wood

03-31-2020 10:13 PM by BlueRidgeDog | 3 comments »

Time to make myself something. I am still using a pine bookcase air nailed together by my father back in the early 70’s…and I have a lot of books. So I am going to make this: I designed it some time back and just now have the time and energy to tackle it. It is not giant, standing only 60” and 30” wide. Nice size, with a top shelf that will not be too high to be used. I am making two, one for me and one as a spec item for a local shop, so I can put the ...

Shop Cabinet build #9: rack for some chisels, door#2 started..

03-30-2020 04:34 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Taking things a bit slow, lately….taking it easy on the right hand….so had a stash of extra chisels.. Along with a few everyday users….some of the “extras” can go back in the rack along the back of the tool well…about 7 needed a new home, though. Dug around in the scrap pile….wanting a couple strips. 2 that were a bit on the thicker side, and one thin one. One of the thicker strips was cut down to about the right length, to fit inside a d...

Small Projects #21: No Ruler Hexagonal Door Knob Stop

03-26-2020 07:59 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

Roscoe, our English bulldog, decided that the spring doorstop was something good to chew on. In fact it was so good he pulled it out of the moulding. Next thing you know we’ve got a doorknob shaped dent in the sheetrock. Woodworking to the rescue! Yayyy! I bought one of those round wall stops, but they’re about the same diameter as the knob and won’t easily mount to the dent (which is obviously exactly where it needs to mount.)Round Stop I had a nice chunk of oak 1...
