Summer’s Woodworking has put on a birdhouse challenge every year for the past few years. In 2018, I entered a acorn birdhouse that I turned on the Shopsmith lathe. I won 3rd place and the prized I got were very nice. This is how I made it.
How I built a workbench for woodworking out of dimensional 2x4's and 2x6's. Minus a few pieces of poplar used to make some leg wedges and select pine on the woodworker's vise, this workbench is made from spf. Come see how I did it.
These are pretty simple curtain rod holders made from wood, and can be made from scrap wood, or even a short piece of three dollar two by four. Sure beats paying $7 dollars for just a couple of unattractive metal ones.
What exactly is kerf and saw kerf? How do you set the kerf of a handsaw anyway?
If you have a spare door laying around taking up space, you can put it to good use in the shop as a workbench. This is how I did it. From the frame which I built from 2x4‘s up to placing the door as the workbench top.
After months of having to do my woodwork outside; fighting rain, snow, and mostly sun and and heat, I finally have a new wood shop! This is the story of how it came to be.
This is how I'm preparing some wood that Jerill Vance sent me and getting it ready to build a box with it. In this video I'll show how I used hand tools to get the boards square and prepped for the build.
Part 2 of cleaning the old craftsman wood plane. I flatten the sole and get some pretty decent shavings when I'm done.
Happy two thousand and seventeen everyone!! May it be the best year ever for all of you.
