In this episode we unveil our shop-made bench top biscuit joining machine designed for fast, accurate glue-ups… and we begin the “Ultimate Tool Cabinet Build”. Plus, Stumpy gives you a list of things to do with your Sundays now that football season is over… Here’s some screen shots of the sketchup drawing for the machine. The most difficult part about the build was the mount for the joiner. It took a lot of work to get the design just right. If it’s no...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #19: Safety week? We don't need no stinking safety week! (Stumpy's Safety Poster)

05-02-2012 12:36 PM by StumpyNubs | 34 comments »

It’s woodworking safety week. I know, I’ve been planning for months. This morning I finished decorating the safety tree, I hung the red halogen safety lights all over the outside of the shop. My wife is wearing her safety dress and I am drinking decaffeinated coffee this morning, because someone said it was safer. These days there’s a “week” for everything. We just wrapped up “earth week”, already the third or fourth one this year it seems, which u...

05-14-2012 01:12 AM by StumpyNubs | 33 comments »

Sharpening card scrapers was never so easy, or so much fun… This week is all about card scrapers: how to sharpen them, how to use them, we make a rack to store them and a jig to burnish them. Along the way we do some fooling around and talk about Roy Underhill’s mustache! There are two projects in this episode, a tool review and a detailed demonstration of cabinet scraping goodness. Check out more episodes at Stumpynubs.com. Enjoy!

Once in a lifetime we achieve a level of perfection so high we wonder if our very lives will ever be the same!

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #12: What in the world IS THAT SMELL??????????????

03-17-2012 02:07 PM by StumpyNubs | 30 comments »

I walked through the door and it hit me like a punch in the face from that girl I used to pick on in grade school. It was a pungent odor, something reminiscent of verbena with a touch of death and decay. All around me I saw people holding their noses, one or two old ladies sat wheezing on the floor. I made my way over to a boy who was vomiting in a bucket, just to inhale the air around him for relief. From there I noticed a curious thing. The cashiers seemed totally unaffected by the noxious ...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #15: A Stumpy Short: An Incra LS for $100? Oh yah, baby!

03-25-2012 01:39 PM by StumpyNubs | 28 comments »

I always wanted an Incra LS table saw fence. But I didn’t want to sell a kidney to get it. So I bought a much less expensive positioner and adapted it to my existing fence. Now I have the best of both worlds, and it can be used on all of my shop machines… enjoy… More episodes at Stumpynubs.comFriend us on Facebook!Visit the Stumpy Store for project plans!

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #20: Stumpy's "Accidental Invention" just might CHANGE THE WORLD!

05-01-2012 12:43 AM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I just wanted to build a jig to cut raised panels, I never imagined I would be turning the woodworking world on it’s ear! The jig we built last episode has gotten out of control! Now it does everything from cutting miters to trimming my toenails, and I am considering adding an adapter to open my cold ones! You’ll get to see the new invention run amuck, plus I demonstrate how to survive without a jointer and still flatten wood like a man. Then I tell you why my neighbor thinks I...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #19: "Raise your panel!" Who knew you could do THAT with a hand plane + another contest!

04-15-2012 11:28 PM by StumpyNubs | 24 comments »

I don’t know why anyone would want to skin a cat, but I hear there is more than one way to do it. The same is true with raised panels, you know, the ones we use on all our fancy cabinet doors… So this week Stumpy tries to make one with nothing but a Stanley #4 hand plane… ...then he decides to make a machine to do it for him! Before all is said an done we have a new jig that does far more than it was originally intended to, and Stumpy is telling us the next best thing ...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #13: Is it ok to laugh at wood? It is unless you live on a creek...

03-20-2012 02:58 PM by StumpyNubs | 21 comments »

Have you ever wandered into the wrong place at the wrong time? Like that time you walked in on your best friend practicing kissing moves on his reflection in the mirror. All you could do was stand there with your mouth open like a bass wishing you were somewhere else. But you couldn’t just walk out… it was too late! You can never unsee those things, and they tend to stick with you. Several months ago I wandered into a popular woodworking forum on the internet which shall remain...
