Back to the making!

I had to have a break from blogging for a while.

My day job required my full attention and commitment.

I can't really remember when my last post was.
And what it was about.

Making 30 M&T Joints

Spring isn't getting warmer.

That will give me some more time to complete the bench.

A lot of mortise and tenon work has to be done.

The Balcony Bench (Pt. 3)

After the excursion into sharpening last week now back to the actual project.

My English Balcony Bench.

Fancy things like a crest rail and the armrests are waiting.

What Have I Changed?

I had resolved not to write about sharpening.

There are specialist out there who do know everything about it.

I'm just a simple Internet woodworker.

The English Balcony Bench

There is some progress on the garden bench project.

It's all about tenons this time.

Elec-Trickery in the Shop

Beside of the telling-bone, the elec-trickery find its way into the shop.

I'm a hand tool woodworker from conviction.
But it's time to get rid of time killers.

Coopering Progress

My actual project raised my curiosity so much that I have started to investigate deeper into the trade of the coopers.

But beside of all research I found time to complete the bucket a bit more.

It Will Be a Bucket

I'm making my way through the coopering experience.

The bucket starts to take shape.

What Do You Know About Coopering?

Various events brought me to a new project idea.

And this has to do with coopering.

Wooden Jointer Plane

Another intermezzo for all tool addicts.

And another exemplar to store.

Maybe a rash purchase.

If Everything Fails

I had to finish the tool box I've made end of last year.

Only the drawers were missing.

Not a big deal - I thought.

Do I Need Moulding Planes?

In the off season we have visited an indoor flea market.

Although it was indoor it was damn cold.

At the end to my favor, but find out by yourself.

Plane Hammer Prototype (Pt.2)

I've started to do a prototype of a plane hammer.

Let's see how it is developing.

Prototyping...

....or fiddling around in the shop.
From cleaning the floor to think about the one or the other project.

I didn't came to the point to be really productive.

Maybe I should figure out something...
