The Pallet of Gold #1: What a Find

02-25-2018 10:54 PM by DJL1031 | 0 comments »

On my last trip to the wood store (as my granddaughters call it), I was about to walk out with a future desk when the ceiling and clouds rolled back, a stream of light broke through and there it was… the golden pallet. +- 500 BF of hardwood cutoffs for…..$95. Could this be? I checked with the owner, confirmed the price and went $95 over my budget. If it is an America hardwood, I got it. Immediately, my mind went into hyper-drive ....and they lived happily ever after. THE END

PanaVise Restoration #2: #304 Low Profile Head

02-25-2018 07:35 PM by twoblacklabs | 0 comments »

Spent a little more time this week restoring the Panavise #304 Low Profile Head. Again, it was filthy and rusty with the original paint flaking off. It dawned on me that using the previously restored base and head would be a great way to clean up the corroded screws instead of buying new ones. Another coat of primer and two coats of paint and voila! The advantage to this head is the lower position of the vise itself to the clamping surface. This allows to get...

• Mystery Cabinet #5: Filling In the Shell

02-25-2018 05:10 PM by Ron Aylor | 9 comments »

Filling In the Shell –  Alaska was fantastic! We got to see the Northern Lights, walk with reindeer, go dog sledding, and I had my first Alaskan Icy Bay IPA. I must admit … it was hard coming back to Lilburn.  But come back we did … and after unpacking it didn’t take me too long to get back in the shop and continue work on my mystery cabinet. I used a backsaw to free-hand the shoulders of the dados …  … I chopped out the waste with a chisel, and ...  … cleaned up the ...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #3: side panels worked on

02-25-2018 03:28 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Got both panels done, for now….one of the rare days I could spend an afternoon IN the shop.. Once I figured which face goes to which face, I stacked the two panels together, clamped them up. Then used the saw /router guide to square both ends. Then, since the panels were still clamped up, I jointed the edges… Had to use the jack plane on a couple knotty spots, then the big guy could finish up.. Less time hauling the 10 pounder around, that way. Left the panels cl...

Spalted Ca. Coastal Live Oak Stump Table

02-25-2018 03:24 PM by highlander33 | 0 comments »

I’ve been thinking about this Stump Table for a while now, not sure what to do with it . I really like the way the epoxy captures and brings out the natural beauty of this wood , so I decided to coat the top with it. Now to decide what kind of finish to use on the sides ?

Shop stuff #117: Hanging an axe head

02-25-2018 02:43 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Good axe handles are getting harder to find. I don’t think it is a shortage of wood or anything like that. I think the manufacturers are just caring less, and most of them are newer companies. I have had my little Swedish axe for a long time and the handle finally gave out. This is how I got a handy tool back into service. View on YouTube

INCRA Router Table Cabinet #2: I have drawers . . . at least two of them!

02-25-2018 06:06 AM by copythat | 0 comments »

I finally made it back into the shop. I set up my INCRA Ultra and retrained myself on the fine art of dovetail joints. I had a good dovetail joint in about 20 minutes. I then planed some wood, cut the drawer pieces, and slowly got busy. They are my first attempts at dovetails in over 13 years and it was fun to be back at it.

LJ friends and gifts. #35: A visit from Greek Yannis - and me trying to find his feet

02-24-2018 09:52 PM by mafe | 23 comments »

A visit from Greek Yannis.- and me trying to find his feet Magic is creatable! Today some one stood in front of the door of my workshop, looking in through the window; that some one was Yannis from Greece, he showed up out of the blue, just to say hello and so I invited him inside. We shared a good hour or so, had coffee, Crema di Limoncello and a wee cake. I don’t think I have to say; Yannis is a really nice guy, I could see that, when I was looking out the window. ...
