  1. My wife is an avid knitter and I had NO idea how many needles she uses. She knits socks and that takes 5 needles. Socks of different yarns take 5 more of a different size. She has needles made of plastic, wood and aluminum, etc. She had no way to store them where she could just reach out and easily get the ones she wants. She designed this storage block to accommodate and sort all of her needles. I made it of Pine and to her specs. There are 12 holes, of each size she uses and are drilled to the depth she wanted. I used good quality Pine and glued up the block, cut it to specs and drilled. I put a backing under it so it don't slide.........she loves it.
  2. Got this in the mail today, luck of the draw in the lottery from our Annual Fundraiser. Not being a hand plane guy for a long time I confess I only have ever had a cheap HF special. Never had an interest till I returned from Iraq but the pins in my wrist really did not like the activity of planning. Late last year I met a customer that also had same problem and he gave me a hands on tutorial of the ins and outs of holding the plane so it doesn't aggravate my injury. Okay, so I tried it at home and have been playing with the thing getting it tuned in and all. It makes nice ribbons, which I am told is unusual for a HF special, but hey miracles happen I guess. So I opened the box and took this Wood River Block Plane apart and got acquainted with all the parts, tuned up the blade a hair and back together it went. Makes some nice shavings. Did research last week on this particular plane and found out it's common uses, and what not to try. Impressive little guy. Thanks to the folks at Wood River for the prize, it will get used and if I get decent at using these things I might have to upgrade the HF special. Budget permitting.
  3. Every year I try to make a gift for amusement purposes. This year I decided on a wood block puzzle. The Soma Cube got the nod. I had some used fir cabinet doors and cut strips of wood 5/8" square. The puzzle is based on cubes and the size doesn't matter. To make the pieces I had to cut 72 pieces three cubes long. 288 pieces two cubes long and 180 pieces of a single cube. 540 pieces in total which was enough to make 36 puzzles. Then those pieces had to be glued together to form the seven puzzle pieces. Quite the endeavor I say. Here is the shapes of the seven puzzle pieces. Here are the pieces I made. One piece of the puzzle involved gluing three blocks and the other six pieces had me glue just two blocks together. Never did piece work in a factory but now I know what it is like. Here is the assembled puzzle.
  4. Hi Everyone Here are a couple of photos of my newest commissioned knife block. Made from walnut with holly accents. 11.5" x 11.5" x 13" and weighs 26 LBS.
  5. I have made a few butcher blocks over the years and my wife used an old one I made 20 years ago. However I am seeing a lot of blocks made of Bamboo. My wife got a small one and really likes it. It is very hard and almost non porous. It is easily cleaned and looks good. I don't like working with the stuff, it is VERY hard and splinters like crazy Any opinions on Bamboo in a butcher block?
  6. As I posted in another thread I have started making 18-20 wooden block planes that I made 4 several years ago copied from a Wood magazine. Since I have a presentation at our local WW club, I plan on giving a presentation on how to make these. I figure if I give each member that comes to the meeting one of these to hold and examine while I go through the steps of building one, it might be more clear in their mind how to do it themselves. And they might not fall asleep during the presentation. Yesterday I showed the blocks glued up for the bodies, and the one I am using for the pattern. The next step was to roughcut out the 1/4" thick sides and sand edges to finish size. After they were sanded close to size I cut the blocks I had previously glued up 4" from the heel of the plane to the mouth of the blade slot on a 45°angle. The cut-off is then turned over and butted up tight to the heel piece,thus creating a "V" for the plane blade to rest in. and the sides are glued on to hold the assembly together. It takes lots of clamps to dlamp these up , I ran of two planes short and had to wait to finish the final two.
  7. Tonight after work I got the two panels sanded on the drum sander and ready to glue up. I need to pick up some couplings so I will have plenty of long pipe clamps. I should be able to get it glued tomorrow night and then clean up the joint and oil and sand it smooth. It is coming along and those two panels were heavy, When this is finally one large panel, it will sure enough be heavy. After it is cleaned up, I will cut to size and round over all of the edges.
