Proper way to glue furniture parts

09-28-2019 01:12 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 3 comments »

I’ve seen a lot of failed furniture joints in my furniture repair shop. I’m surprised how many people don’t know the fundamentals of how to properly glue up parts. I’ve seen finish in joints. I’ve seen joints with barely any glue in them. I’ve seen dowel joints with just glue at the bottom of the mortise. I put this video together to show how to properly glue up furniture joints. Let me know what you think. https://youtu.be/hS8NV_S9dw0

Cleaning Up An Old Hand Saw

05-23-2019 07:08 PM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I picked up a Disston D8 thumb hole saw to replace my old Bishop rip saw. I cleaned it up enough to make it a great user but not loose the character and patina. I think it’s ready for another lifetime of servicehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOAWYje2s6g&t=387s

Horizontal Disc Sharpener, aka DIY WorkSharp WS3000

04-29-2019 11:56 AM by DrTebi | 5 comments »

You may also want to check out this short video demonstrating the machine. After a bit of experimentation, I finally finished my horizontal disc sharpener. I posted this idea in the forms here a few weeks ago. This project was inspired by the WorkSharp WS3000 sharpening machine. Apart from making my own version, I also wanted to be able to wet-sharpen blades. This keeps the blades cooler during sharpening, and, due to the lubrication, should generally give better results. Unlike ...

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 ...

DIY Marking Knife

06-27-2018 04:35 PM by wrenchhead | 4 comments »

My 14 year old son has been wanting to do some blacksmithing and make a knife for a while now so before i go and build a forge and buy an expensive anvil I thought a marking knife would be a good beginner project to teach him what little bits I know about metal working and some woodworking. This project required minimal tools and my son got to learn a few new skills. I had a blast spending the weekend with him in the woodshop and I think he had a good time too. Thanks for watching https://...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Tool Restoration - Hand Planes #1: Sargent Hercules No3

03-21-2018 10:27 PM by Straust | 4 comments »

So since there were some questions on how I got from point A to point B on my restoration of the Type 19 No5 Stanley Bailey I took a few more pictures though I will have to better next time as I got a bit lazy. So here are the before pictures as you can see the tote is broken and the knob is damaged a bit as well. There is quite a bit of rust but the body’s paint was in good shape so I decided to keep it. Here is a picture of my setup for this restoration. This time I put ...

Octave Mandolin #20: Custom Octave Mandolin

03-15-2018 03:10 AM by Tomy Hovington | 1 comment »

This project was commissioned and was quite the undertaking. My customer wanted a Octave Mandolin with a archtop and flat backboard. Since there was no blueprints to make such an instrument I had to do research, compile information and sketch my own drawing to even start the project. This build stretch over a year and a bit and was just completed.The wood used in this project is AAA quilted Maple back sides and neck, Engelmann AAA Spruce top, ebony fretboard, binding, and peghead veneer.
