- Video: Folding the Folding BookstandThe June 2018 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine features an article I wrote about making a folding bookstand using scraps and copper rivets. It’s a design based on 18th-century pieces that were popular among British military officers. Several readers have requested a video that shows how the bookstand folds and unfolds. So here you go. Though the mechani […]
- Make a Marking Gauge for CurvesIf you work with curves, you need a marking gauge that can deal with curves. Me, I make chairs. So I need a gauge that can follow the curve of a seat so I can delineate the lines for the scooped-out saddle, the spindles and the “gutter” – a shallow and decorative channel on traditional chairs. I also need a gauge such as this for marking out the armbow and [ […]
- The Tools in the Bottom of my Tool ChestThe tools at the bottom of my chest are the heavy and expensive stuff – the planes and saws that get constantly used. At the back of the chest are my moulding planes. And the front wall of my chest has a tool rack that contains the stuff I need to grab without even looking at it. Let’s start with that rack. The Tool Rack From left to right: My […] The post T […]
- A Dovetailing Kit for BeginnersLast week I discussed the Zona Razor Saw and how it’s the ideal saw for beginning dovetailers. It’s just $12 to $15 and cuts extremely well. This saw got me thinking about what other inexpensive tools could fill out the kit for the beginner (or someone who is short on money). So here’s my best shot at this list. I’ve also included (at times) what I think is […]

LostArtPress on InstagramTwo tool chests ready for crates. I hope building the crates goes faster than the chests.....The chief use of the centre bit is in boring through comparatively thin wood or for making shallow holes. It is unsuitable for cutting deep holes because there is nothing to ensure its progressing in a straight line—especially when working in end grain. Fig. 4 shows how it tends to wander with the grain, taking the path of least resistance. For work of this kind the twist bit is far more satisfactory. The edges of the spiral portion bear against the side of the hole and ensure its continuing in a straight line. — from “The Woodworker: The Charles H. Hayward Years: Volume I” published by Lost Art Press #The_WoodworkerThe belly is remarkably effective for shaving legs and other chair components. The block holds the work so you can knife the end of your workpiece without the drawknife’s handles hitting your body. Also, the rabbets on the head are all useful – especially the small rabbet at the top, which allows you to shave small components along their entire length. The belly is an effective alternative to a shavehorse in many cases. It can be used at a high or low bench. It takes up no floor space. It allows you to shave the entire length of a leg or spindle in one swipe. It’s as fast as a shavehorse. — from “Ingenious Mechanicks” by Christopher Schwarz #Ingenious_Mechanicks
