Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

I recently met with Mike Waldt, a Woodturner from the UK and we made a video together to provide advice about how to buy a wood lathe. This was our first time putting together a video where we have a discussion about tools, so let us know what you think so we can figure out if this is a useful format for viewers. Thanks.

I am in the process of creating my own Worksharp sharpener. I have carved wood in the past, and wanted to improve my sharpening system. Presently I am using low, med, high diamond stones. In gathering the parts need for the DIY worksharp parts and in carving the Tormek jig SVG-38 was essential . I could purchase it, but my late dads voice kept bugging me ” ... have you tried it ”. So here I am venturing to the challenge of making my own SVG-38. I started of by designing...

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process. https://youtu.be/MBg7jzwOMgU

Don't Do This - Bad Woodworking Repair!

04-26-2020 04:33 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I’ve heard it many times… what separates a bad woodworker from a good woodworker is how well they hide their mistakes. Repairing furniture is a great way to learn how to hide woodworking mistakes. I just published a YouTube video showing a bad furniture repair, how to take it apart, and how to fix it. Here’s the before and after photos. Link to Video—> https://youtu.be/wRk27aEkmyE

Shop stuff #187: Starting a new build

04-25-2020 03:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Last winter I started a new build. It’s still not done yet, but I am starting to put out the videos on it. I am doing a larger series on this one, breaking it into several digestible parts so I can include lots of detail. My aim is to make any woodworker able to build this project by watching the videos. I also mention optional ways of doing things when I can. It is a 3 drawer root vegetable storage unit. But I am making it pretty fancy. It’s going into a home that is a bit...

Lovely purpleheart is a full 1” thick The purpleheart was ripped at 3/4” and then recut to 3/4” leaving a 5/32” offcut with a TK blade. The 24” piece was cut at 3-7/8” and yielded six pipe blocks with about 1/4” left over. Talk about 100% yield! ...
