  1. New and Improved Shop Dust Pan

    Well, I had to improve my shop dust pan design and add a woodworking theme to it. What else but a hand saw? and a rip saw to boot. Check my previous project for more detail.
  2. Staked shop stool

    I needed a new stool for my shop. The one I mostly use is 18" high, which is too low for my new titanium knees (they'll get better), so I decided to make a new, taller stool. I took a piece of 3 inch wide 4/4 maple that was just under six feet long, ripped it in half, then crosscut it in half...
  3. Vintage Vinyl Storage Cube

    I started collecting the vintage vinyl that I used to listen to in Viet Nam back in the day. My wife told me I needed to build a storage unit so this is what I came up with. It's a 13" x 13" x 13" cube made from left over exotic wood shipping crates. I applied one coat of walnut oil to help...

  5. First woodworking project. Workbench

    Although I have done some projects around the house (desk, fence, etc.) I am certainly not an accomplished woodworker. This past fall I decided to try and build a workbench. I had no plans and just hoped for the best. Since completing the project, I have developed an appreciation for...
  6. Rip Saw

    This is the second saw I've made. Its a 24 in long rip saw filed with 5 points per inch. The blade is .020 inches thick (thin?). I realize this is pretty thin, but I had the metal so i figure i'd try it. So far I haven't had any trouble with it. The handle is made of zebra wood, and the...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Our 75 HP gang rip saw broke down yesterday, and we had to pull the pressure roll assembly off to repair it. I thought you lumberjocks might get a kick out of these photos. My brother and I did a little calculating and we've had this saw for 10 years and figure that we have fed thru this saw...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello all, I use a 14 year old Value-Rip Saw (ProfiRip KM 310 M) from Raimann (weining group) in my shop. Unfortunately, during a relocation I lost the software ScanCore. Furthermore the machine is too old for the new software TimberMax. So my question is, does someone has the old ScanCore...

    Disston D-8 Rip Saw As I have delved more and more into hand-tool woodworking I have discovered that I get a lot of satisfaction and enjoyment out of tool restoration. I've restored planes, saws, drawknives, spokeshaves and enjoyed every one. None of my tools are really collector grade though...

    My accidental forray into saw clean up After reading many threads and blogs about saw restoration I got to wondering what one of these things cost. Then I stumbled on a Disston 4b at the back a storage shed in a box marked with the name of a very old storage customer on it. We own a boat...

    Cleaning Up An Old Hand Saw I picked up a Disston D8 thumb hole saw to replace my old Bishop rip saw. I cleaned it up enough to make it a great user but not loose the character and patina. I think it's ready for another lifetime of service

    I am looking for a good hand rip saw. When I look on line some rip saws are 4 tpi and other ones are up to 12 tpi. I would think that a rip saw would need more tpi an I wrong? What makes a rip saw a rip saw?
