Until something comes along to build with....wood-wise. Stopped at a pair of stores the other day....one had a Nicholson USA Rasp.. Yep....for $2? Seemed better than that $200 Stanley No. 72 in another stall..... Nice logo.....Wandered over to the other store....found a large coffee can full of drill bits... These seemed to be sizes I didn't have.....well, one was. One is a #4 ( 4/16") the one i didn't have was that #5 ( 5/16") dollar bill for the pair... Went to leave the stall, had to turn around...found a shelf....found this thing sitting on it... No, not a space gun....a saw set. Millers Falls No. 214, type 1 Needed a bit of clean up, price tag said $8.....plus tax. As for something to build with? Took care of that "problem" this afternoon... We'll see how far 32 bf of flat sawn Ash will go.....$30. There is 11 boards there, all 4/4 x 6"....we had to cut 5 boards down, as 11' was too long for the van...the 11th was already @ 6' Will post something in the woodworking section, when I can get something started...I barely tapped the stash of the Ash the fellow has, might try to go back and get another layer......need to save up me pennies
John Morris posted a topic in Hand ToolsI get Tom Fidgen's Newsletter in my inbox and I always look forward to it. Tom is a hand made by hand tool guy, long story short, great stuff, beautiful work, I have been following him for along time. In the most recent newsletter he is advertising his new Two Handled Rasps, these are beautiful tools, I want them, I gotta have them, don't know how yet, but some day I'll have them in my shop. These tools just make sense, with their two handles, stitched rasp, these are made for accurate stock removal. I have no horse in the game here, I just love beautiful tools is all. Here they are. Just thought I'd share them.
Rust Hunting today, so not too much was done on the Pine Table. All the legs have eight "flats" four at the top, and four near the feet, mostly rough sawn, too. Clamped each leg up, and smoothed each flat, using the Little Guys The low angle one mostly. The square areas on each leg, like where an apron will go, were smoothed out. Do one side, release the vise, rotate, and repeat. The Knuckle cap was used a few times, as well. Nice change of pace from them big old Jack planes. A Wards #78 had snuck out of the Tool Chest, too. The one in back of the crowd. That orange thing is the Handyman after a clean up. But why the 78? Well I clamp an apron blank to the bench top. Set the fence and depth stop on the 78 and run it back and forth a few times. Then use the VIXEN rasp to clean up a finished tenon. Takes longer to clamp it up, than the make one. Might get the long aprons done tomorrow? We'll see...
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
