Good thing I’ll need some narrow parts…hauled a few to the shop.. These were for side panel #2..already had parts for #1 cut to length.. Already stashing cut-offs, for smaller parts.. Well, today..after tests at the local Hospital…and a nap….did a cardio workout.. This is about an hour’s worth&...

Got it in my head the the Reading train needs some cars so ordered the Gatto plans that match up with the train.This will be my third caboose but all are completely different.It also come with a Hopper car which will be a new type car for me, it also comes with a passenger car but it’s I can’t remember but it’s way long so may build a cattle car instead down the road. {I love to build cattle cars. LOL} I forgot to bring the camera with me the first day but you get the ...

Amazing Workbench Build |Hand tool Woodworking

10-18-2018 11:41 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

A few months ago, I posted pictures of my Paul Sellers Workbench and received a really big response. I linked it to my build series on youtube. The series is too long for most people to watch so I condensed it into 5 minutes (over 15 hours of video footage). I hope my video inspires others to build one of their own. This experience has changed my practice of woodworking forever.

Tool Gloat: Brass Purfling Channel Cutter

10-18-2018 05:18 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

This is essentially a specialized cutting gauge that is used to cut a thin channel in the edge of a violin so that laminated purfling can be inserted. There are several types of these available, but I wanted this one made of brass. Even though I’m not even close to creating a violin, at least I have a tool to help spur me along on my journey. The tool above the cutter is a thin specialized chisel used to dig out the material after the cutter digs the path. This gives...

Ukulele #2: Banding and catchup

10-16-2018 02:51 AM by Fchilly | 5 comments »

After a cider or two I decided I had enough confidence for an attempt at the banding. I set up the trim router to cut about an 1/8×1/16 step for a Koa banding. I relied entirely on CA glue to attach this, and it turned out very nice. I havent decided what to use for the backside banding, but i’m considering a maple/koa/maple contrasting strip. I’ll keep my options wide open. The saddle and nut just arrived from amazon, which means I can continue on the neck and the bridge. I’m curr...

The amazing woodworking collection of Zhuhai, China

10-15-2018 04:46 PM by Elyasaf Shweka | 12 comments »

Try to imagine yourself, as a hobbyist woodworker, being invited to a private tour accompanied by an Chinese government representative, in what appears to be the biggest, most expensive and most amazing woodworking collection. how big? 20 thousand square meters, which is about 200,000 square feet, equivalent to the size of an Walmart superstore. also, this collection is private, and therefor closed to the public. we were the only visitors at this giant warehouse.I have so much to say about t...
