Treadle Lathe #6: Steady progress | Frame assembly soon

11-15-2018 08:16 PM by LastingBuild | 1 comment »

Since my last post, I cut the mortises on the uprights (three legs) and began hogging out the mortises in the three mating feet. The tenons are quite large and the mortises are taking around 15 drill holes using my brace and bit. The vintage Stanley brace and Irwin company auger bits I’m using are a real pleasure though. Each tenon is 3 inches long and I’m drilling the mortise to 3 1/4” depth. Once the three mortises are complete, I can fit the frame togethe...

Tenon Challenge | Guess right and win!

11-09-2018 09:33 PM by LastingBuild | 2 comments »

Today, I cut a tenon using my Japanese Saw, Timber framing chisel and #4 hand plane. I filmed it and timed it. I want as many guesses as possible as to how long it took to cut the tenon using these tools. A lot of woodworkers don’t realize how efficient hand-tools can be. The more guesses the better. The winner will get a prize! See video below! View on YouTube

Making Tree into Rope

11-03-2018 02:02 PM by MaxAdvoko | 0 comments »

Hi folks! This video is about making a primitive rope from a young fir. Such rope was used by loggers and raftsmen in the past. Admittedly, the fir rope is less flexible than traditional rope and it will be harder to tie into a knot, but it only takes a few minutes to make such rope.Moreover, this DIY rope has a number of unexpected woodworking uses that I will tell you about in this three minute video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w3MpFoIX5uw.

Shop stuff #140: Fixing a snow blower.

11-03-2018 03:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

Not wood working, but they can make the path to the shop a bit easier. I went with a friend to pick up his Father In Laws snow blower that has been sitting for 2 years. Not using things sometimes leads to problems. So I took a day and fixed it up for him. A change of pace from the usual in my shop. View on YouTube

Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

Treadle Lathe #5: Upright mortises and dry fitting the first through tenon

11-02-2018 01:24 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Today I began hogging out the four mortises on the 1st and 3rd uprights. Each mortise will house a through tenon attaching the two ways to the uprights (legs). The second upright attaches to the ways with a series of housings in which I discussed on the last post. Sticking with the hand-tool only approach., I drilled out each mortise with my brace and 1 inch auger bit from each side of the uprights then finished it off with a chisel. I’m really happy with the fit. Thanks for following m...

Treadle Lathe #4: Dry fitting the first joint

In this episode, I complete the two housings in the 2nd upright. Each housing is mated with a housing in each way. The horizontal ways will attached to three uprights (legs) of the treadle lathe frame. The ways will be the structural support for the headstock, tail stock and tool rest. View on YouTube

Ever seen a stopped miter joint?

10-31-2018 01:12 AM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I’m in the process of building my woodworking tool cabinet and I had to cut a stopped miter joint. I’d never done this before and never heard of it before. It was a unique situation and thought I would share the experience on video. https://youtu.be/oXllBvNLIoE What are your thoughts? Scott
