Woodworking Women

05-04-2019 12:55 PM by JustanotherChris | 6 comments »

I didn’t grow up in the usual family way…lots of foster homes, abuse and being torn down inside. I traveled the wrong path for a while and did more damage to myself. Broken in pieces and driven to my knees, I found my original family, my Higher Power, and became a useful member of society. I’m seeing more guys involve their daughter’s in the craft and I’m pleased. Bob, over at ‘I like to Make Stuff’, has involved his daughter in projects. I...

Handtool Basics #6: History of the Western Handplane

01-18-2019 04:53 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 4 comments »

In this video I looked at a few popular hand planes in my collection and through history to show the development of the hand plane from the second century AD through the modern era. In my collection are the Sandusky model 13, Stanley Bedrock number 5, Stanley Handyman Number 5 (British Stanley), Lie Nielsen Number 5 1/2, and the RALI 260 Evolution N. I also looked at the Goomanham plane, Stanley Bailey Patent Planes, and the transitional plane Please let me know if there are any impo...

FOUND IT! (Anyone remember a miniature bench plane for executives?)

12-31-2018 02:40 AM by Dave Rutan | 20 comments »

[See my comment below] A long tme ago, like maybe in the 1980’s or 90’s, I remember seeing a miniature bench plane and work bench for executives. The idea was that you could plane a miniature piece of wood on your desk to relieve stress, much like a mini zen garden. I think it was offered by a catalog like The Sharper Image or Brookstone, but I can find nothing about it on the internet. I’m just curious about it and would like to see the add for it. Knowing what I ...

Wooden Shackles #2: Fun with Shapes and Styles

09-26-2018 11:17 PM by AceofHearts | 0 comments »

A few days work and some playing i got some interesting designs for my shackles so far, the next batch I will push the designs a bit further and try to incorporate more detail work. These are just from 2×4 and 2×6 pine lumber from Home Depot so they’re really soft and somewhat hard to work with for this. I’m still new to woodworking so I’m making lots of mistakes, this keeps me confident that I will improve and so will my work over time. The shackles I have ...

Youtube videos: Another element to Woodworking #1: Learning how to shoot woodworking videos

03-30-2018 04:37 PM by rustednail | 5 comments »

So i recently began making videos and posting them on YouTube. I didn’t really have high hopes for the channel because i know very little about making content that people may actually want to watch. I also was concerned about shooting videos slowing down my production and causing more headache than it is worth. But none the less i began the video journey. To my surprise, i have found the added element of making videos to be a motivator. I am now constantly thinking up new and uniqu...

I made this tapered leg table to have a place to work, study and edit. The top is made of Sapele and the base is maple finished with milk paint. It was a fun project using a variety of machines and hand tools. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kNId8i-sS3o

Improved Taper Jig

03-08-2018 10:19 PM by wrenchhead | 3 comments »

I made this taper jig to replace the old metal one i have been using. This is a simple table saw jig that makes cutting tapered legs much safer. I have been cutting all of my tapers at the band saw because I wasn’t comfortable at the table saw. This jig will definitely speed up the table leg making process. Thanks for watching. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOlFJyplq6U

Possible Maker Marks

03-07-2018 01:41 AM by IantheTinker | 4 comments »

I asked my 3 oldest kids, along with my niece, to come up with maker marks for me to choose from. They each filled a sheet of paper with ideas based around these criteria: my initials (I.J.) and possibly Bad Back Wood Working (I developed some lower back issues sometime ago), it also had to be around a couple inches square. I noticed that a few of them include the current year or the year I started woodworking, I thought that was a nice idea, which they came up with on their own. I chose a...

Woodworking Mallet (Carver's Mallet)

03-02-2018 10:23 PM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I made these hand made woodworking mallets (Carver’s Mallet) from some leftover maple I cleaned up, laminated, then turned on the lathe. This is a great project for when you only have an hour or two to spend in the wood shop. Nothing better than making my own tools. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dZAOw_frfcI
