  1. Sometimes instructional videos can get long, and that is fine if you are mainly unfamiliar with every step of the process to make your project. This video however, was just right, assuming you already have a grasp on layout and design and tools usage, this young man goes through the basic steps on making a very nice shaker cupboard. I am in the process of making rail and stile and raised panel doors for mama's cabinet, using hand tools, and I wanted to get some tips on the process and order of steps, I found this relatively short video that included what I needed to see. Actually thi
  2. Looking through the Lee Valley web site, I came across this. Seems to be a new magazine specializing in hand tools and their use. They have issues 1 and 2 on the web site, but I don't know if a subscription is available. If a subscription is wanted, you might have to buy the first issue from LV and then contact the publisher. I just did a screenshot, so there is some extra garbage in the picture from my desk top.

  4. Late start, been under the weather, a bit..... Got bored a bit...needed to resaw a few parts, or at least start a few. Had 10 blanks...tossed out one, too many defects..Tablesaw to get the others the same width....after ripping one edge straight....made a mess doing that There goes the spotless floor....reset the fence, to allow a zero clearance overlay....and set about deadcenter for the stock... About 3/8" between the fence and the blade....then ran the blanks through....bad planning, blade didn't reach to the 1/2 halfway point. We have ways...
  5. They just announced that Handworks 2020 is on!!!! It will be in Amana, IA again on Sept. 4th & 5th, 2020. For those that haven’t been there before, this is one of (if not THE) gathering of hand tool manufacturers in the world. High end tool makers from all over the world are there showing their wares, letting you touch them and feel them, and of course, buy them. https://amanacolonies.com/things-to-do/events/special-events/hand-works/

  8. My wife has /does collect artwork and she is always in need of storage chests. I decided that my next chest would have 12 raised panels, be painted, and made to her specifications(to fit some artwork). I selected poplar wood because it works/planes well and I have a few 100 board feet of it. The construction was a combination of power tools and a finished surface with hand planing of all of the surfaces. The chest is made of solid wood.... nothing plywood. Mortise and tenons were used to join the frame members and then pinned together. A half mortise lock secures the contents. The photos show
  9. Has anyone ever thought about ditching the power all together, going "Roy Underhill'ish" on the world with your wood shop? It appeals to me. I have given it much thought, and the idea of no power just seems very compelling to me. I am almost ready to put my machines up for sale, and use the cash for a fleet of hand tools, build a saw bench, work bench. Been investigating some cool websites all about going powerless. Graham Blackburn is a great resource for this at http://www.blackburntools.com/index.html There are plenty of shops around our nation that are completely off the grid, both profes
  10. Haven't watched this all yet, but a PBS documentary on the Stanley Works (about an hour long) https://vimeo.com/253882614
  11. Since this web site is as much about lessons learned as it is about displaying our successful efforts, let me share my ongoing experience, namely that I made two incompatible decisions. Lately I have been interested in trying different woods with which I have not yet worked. My choice was Hickory. I have also wanted to develop more confidence using hand tools instead of relying solely on machines. I decided to make a project for my wife, using hand tools as much as possible. I guess that was a third decision to add to the incompatibility morass. Part of the project involved chopping out
  12. Just got an email from Woodpeckers advertising this web site for hand tools. Their product line is rather small, but it all looks good on the web page. Almost too good to use. And they are very proud of their products. Nice to look at, but too rich for my blood. https://bluesprucetoolworks.com/
  13. Hey fellas I need your help in buying some tools for carpentry as I am new in this field and want to start my own carpenter workshop so will be needed some basic tools for it. So suggest me some good brands for it.
  14. So I woke up and was working on a nameplate carving, with the Dremel hand craving kills my hands, when a question from art school came into my head. With the advancement in modern technology where do you draw the line between traditional methods and more modern stream lined methods. For example hand planing, some swear by it, some don’t even own a hand plane. Or carbide tipped turning tools that you don’t have to sharpen vs. HSS that you still have to work the craft of sharpening. In the art world they are always going back and forth on what’s considered an appropriate middle ground between th
  15. A Navy buddy picked up some old tools and is looking for some help identifying them. Any ideas on these??? Thanks!
