Finally got around to posting something on this site. This is my first 'real wood' non-shop related project. This was a project from WoodSmith magazine. I had to modify it as my space was a little to small for their design. It was more challenging than I expected, especially getting the...
This is a hand plane that I made from part that I purchased from knight-toolworks.com . The sides and are made of red oak, the sole and adjustable throat are made of ipe wood, the wedge is bloodwood, and on the ends they are padouck. Look at the iron it is 1/4" thick! This plane is a true...

My first raised panel cabinet is done. Slideshow follows. It should download and open on it's own and then click it to move from one side to another.
Many thanks to all LJ's who answered my many questions even after I made a nuisance of myself.

I am a budding Shopsmith enthusiast and this is my 3rd Shopsmith (the other two being older Model 10ER machines). This one wasn't in too bad of shape when I got it (last picture), but I still decided to tear it down and completely refurbish it. I enjoy rebuilding old woodworking machines (I...
I bought two James Swan firmer Chisels off of Ebay a while ago with the intention of making a pair of skew chisels for cleaning out dovetails. I did a lot of searching on the internet for a ferrel to use on the handle but could only find the cheap brass tube with the end rounded over. That...
Da auf jeder Baustelle viele Erdmassen bewegt werden, brauchen die kleinen Baumeister unbedingt auch ein Kipper/Dumper .
Since many Earth masses are moved on any construction site, the small builder definitely need a Tipper / Dumper.
So a while back I have built a drum sander. I have been doing some modifications to it, as you can see from the pictures. I have the original post of the drum sander at http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68763
The first thing I changed was the handwheel. I never really like how the handwheel was...

I built this chair for about 12 Bucks, Saw a chair in the store for 200. I really liked the chair but was to expensive. I used 4' Landscaping timbers and used lag bolts to hold it all together. The top is Fence lattice that I cut to fit, Dog Eared. and finished it off with Helsmans clear. Sorry...
The next step was to layout the placement for the trucks (axles), then drill. With all cutting, drilling and staining complete, I sprayed 3 coats of clear over the entire deck, wet-sanding between coats, then mounted the trucks, bearings and wheels. I applied griptape to the top, then used...
I thought I'd do a "double duty" with this one-a sign for our picnic and a Summer Awards Project.
I might try it again to see if I can do it better next time but until then, this will be adorning our backyard.
Wood: cedar sign; walnut, pine, and something or other wood (stuff I had kicking...
I recently went and visited a local Co-op type start up woodworking shop. They were looking for some teachers and I figured that at this point I have done enough (or at least read enough LJs posts) to try my hand at teaching. I talked them through some of the topics I'd like to teach...

My wife and I are planning a leaf peeping trip this fall and will be in the New England area. Any especially interesting woodworking tool, lumber, schools, and such wood related sites to visit?
I'm new to LJ, but I'd like ask a few questions to any Utah Valley members on this site. We are considering opening a membership-based community shop somewhere in the valley and want to get your input.
1. Do you have a specific interest for a membership driven, community-type woodshop...
A couple of LJs have asked what classes I have taught along the way. I done quite a number and will post pictures here. I had to take the faces out as I do not have permission to use the student's images on the net and I'm not sure the store does either. But here they are a bit edited.
