  1. The value of plans

    OK, so every once in a while I go out into the shop and think that I can just build something without plans…you know, just "develop" something; let the wood "speak" to me. I should know better after all these years! Nice wood, but the design is not anything like I had originally planned. I...
  2. My Scary Sharp sharpening station

    Hey Fellow Lumberjocks, I thought I'd take a minute and share my latest shop-project. I know that there are many ways to sharpen an edge, so I'm not attempting to weigh in on the discussion of which is best, etc. I had researched a bunch of them before deciding on the method I wanted to...

  4. Cutting board

    Cherry, Maple Walnut. Staggered every other. I also cut a wine cork, and attached them to the bottom. I coated it with a butcher block finish.
  5. Bulldozer Book Shelf

    Well, this is my first post on lumberjocks. In fact, its the first time I ever showed anyone outside my immediate family and a few friends at work any woodworking project. So I'm pretty nervous. Anyway, my wife said my son Dylan needed a bookshelf. When I asked him what type of bookshelf he...

  7. Fleet of 1922 race cars

    When I finished the first of these 1922 race cars, the yellow one, I previously posted it here. I went a little crazy and made 4 more of the race cars, for a total of 5. The 1922 book, Advanced Toy Making for Schools by David M. Mitchell, has many design patterns for children's toys. You can...
  8. Cigar Box Guitar

    here is my first cigar box guitar, or CBG as they are commonly called. it uses a cool drew estates undercrown box, maple neck with 4d finishing nails for frets. some cheap ping tuners and it has a piezo rod pickup under the bridge to make it electric. it sounds pretty good and i have learned...
  9. Scary Sharp meets Gorilla Strong

    I needed a very flat, hard surface to perform my current version of "scary sharp" for my chisels and my few (for now) plane blades. I am currently using 3m Trizact 5" film as my sharpening media. Since I have a small garage shop / man cave, I needed something just the right size to hold up to...
  10. Sharpening Station

    This sharpening station started life as my first woodworking project a couple years ago. It was supposed to be a sewing center for the wife. It sat in the shop like many projects do and I never really liked how it turned out. I have since upgraded my skills and my tools, however.. there it...
  11. Fancy Sharpening Station

    So I finally decided it was time to get serious about sharpening my tools. I eventually want to get some diamond stones, water stones, etc but I figured I start the cheap way by using the scary sharp method. This is probably a little over done but it gave me something to work on besides the...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I found these on Craigslist in my area and was hoping to get some help from you all with deciding if they'd be a good purchase. I'm about as new to sharpening as you can be…I just picked up the essentials for the Scary Sharp system a couple of weeks ago and have actually been able to get some...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I adopted this plane a few days ago and noticed the Japanning is red/maroon in color. Has anybody seen this before or did someone trick this one out "post factory"? From wood stuff 2010 From wood stuff 2010
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My local auto store stopped carrying pressure sensitive adhesive backed rolls of 3M wet dry sandpaper. I use it primarily for lapping and sharpening. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good online source? I found this one...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I finally decided to get serious about sharpening my tools, particularly my chisels. Last night I cut a couple through mortises for a bench I'm making out of redwood and I realized that I needed a sharp chisel to clean up the edges. I have a set of chisels from the borg that I thought were...

    What I have and What's Next! Hello and welcome to my first Blog! The intent of this blog is to track my entrance into the world of woodworking. There seems to be a gap between the people who are just getting into woodworking, and those who have been enjoying the hobby for ten years. So, this...

    Scary Sharp Method so just like every other woodworker at one point (what's up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I...

    The rules of the day So I'm calling this the slowest shop, because thanks to the "econemy" (misspelled deliberately because it's more enemy than economy) and other life issues, just as many/most of us on here are, I'm unable to do most of the things I'd really like to do. In an earlier blog I...
