How to dimension lumber with handtools #1: Tools

09-10-2018 01:38 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

I started a new video series tonight on how to dimension lumber using only hand tools. I am currently woking on building a treadle lathe and have been busy dimensioning all the components for the project. The tools I am currently using are the Stanley Sweetheart #4, Stanley #62 low angle jack plane, Stanley Bailey #7, A square, Stanley marking knife, Wood river marking gauge and 3 foot long measuring stick. It is a little slow but a good work-out. My shaving pile his about a foot tall now. ...

Building my Workbench #6: Do these sticks make my slab look flat?

11-10-2016 01:22 PM by HokieKen | 3 comments »

Oh dear… What is he doing? Is this the second entry in a single week? Yes, yes it is :-) I got a couple of free hours last night so decided to sneak in a little bench work. I decided I was going to flatten the slab I glued up over the weekend. But wait, aren’t you supposed to wait until the bench is done to flatten it? Well, yes. And I didn’t completely flatten it, that will be when I finish the build. But, my thinking is that this is the bulk of my top. Once I di...

Building my Workbench #4: Breaking Wind

10-31-2016 12:45 PM by HokieKen | 1 comment »

You guys thought I’d forgotten about the blog didn’t you? Well never fear, here is yet another exciting and timely entry! ;-) Due to some family issues the last month, I’ve had very limited shop time. I finally got a chance to get started this weekend. So, I cut the first beam to rough length and went to work flattening it. I scrubbed one face until it looked flat enough and ran it through the planer taking light passes to flatten the opposite face. I was feeling goo...

Around the Shop #9: Winding Sticks

05-18-2015 05:35 PM by Mosquito | 1 comment »

I started a new project this weekend, and part of that was prepping some rough cherry. What good projects generally start with, is another project first lol I was looking for something to use as winding sticks (I usually use pieces of aluminum angles), when I decided I’d just make a set from some scraps instead (about time). These are Poplar with Padauk accents. I used a scrap from a piece I had on my tool chest, but later removed (hence there’s a few screw holes). It was...

My First Workbench #16: Day 16: Winding sticks and cutting rail tenons.

08-27-2012 11:16 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the pictures, please click here. I had some time this morning with kids out playing with chalk in the driveway to make some winding sticks for when I level the top (hopefully this week!). I had some 1×2 dimensional poplar left over from a project that was never used (8 feet of it sitting in the garage taunting me to make something out it). So I found the two ends were the straightest and cut 2’ off each end.Then I used a chisel to bevel the edges slightly. I tried to fi...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #13: Using the tools: Lesson 1 the Winding sticks and Straightedge.

10-10-2011 03:56 AM by RGtools | 20 comments »

Hello again, before we get started today, I just wanted to say thanks for all your patience during my busiest time of year. Today we are going to get started on our active lesson plan…in other words we are going to start using the tools we have discussed in the previous chapters. I just thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Ryan and I have been obsessed with building things since I was a little kid. When I was 17 I had the opportunity for formally appr...
