well, good riddance 2016

Happy New Year everyone. 2016 was not a fun time for me, I lost my Dad, my cat, many of my musical heroes and Gordie Howe….The world is in a mess and I can’t see anything good in the future but we live in hope, eh? Good luck and good fortune....

Accuracy

How do I get more precise? I’ve seen guys with less do better. I practice. I still suck.

Ooops!

I guess I’ll pull out the hand plane today. Remember kids, if you think you got all the nails out, check again. I don’t think this planer knife is ever gonna be scary sharp again. No wolves were injured in this event.

I got my randomly awarded tshirt the other day. It’s a perfect fit and I will wear the fabric out of it. Thanks so much for sending it.

pretty good day

The new Stihl petrol grass trimmer works a charm, i made a pretty good little a&c mirror frame, watched Scotland beat Samoa and Wales lose to Australia in the rugby. Feeling quite manly. Rugby is almost as fun to watch as ice hockey…

Sawstop

I saw this article today. I’m sure that Sawstop gear is excellent but this Gass guy needs a slapping. Good luck taking on Bosch, mind you, that takes balls. "":http://toolguyd.com/sawstop-bosch-reaxx-table-saw-lawsuit/

Ever finished a bit of elm?

This is English Elm. It’s the first time I’ve used it. It’s really beautiful and this picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s taken a long time to get the fur off it, many hours of scraping, sandpaper is of no use. It’s now a lovely smooth and very...

Vampyre

I found a trapped vampire today. He was frozen in a tree. The tree was destined to heat my house. For some reason I decided not to burn the log but mill a board from it. The small plaque of wood sat on a shelf until today. I made a little stand...

The New Year...

Two great things I’ve heard in the last two days… 1.) “I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing...

Gifted anything cool this year?

A long time ago I was watching a youtube video and pointed out a marking gauge to the rabbit. I got this yesterday from her. I was wondering if anyone else got a bit of kit for Christmas:

hey! I gotta new band saw

Well it’s an old bandsaw…a sixties Coronet Imp built in Derby… so I tested it by making a box…it sucks, I know but it took no time at all and it’s made from a left over bit of pressure treated fence post. I had fun. Never owned a band saw...

Hardwood suppliers in the UK

Since there are a few UK woodworkers on this site I thought I’d whinge a bit about the lack of decent hardwood and the cost of it, here in the UK. If anyone has a good supply of decent wood I’d love to know about it.Ebay is useless and the...

Rain screen

I live in a valley high in the Welsh hills. It rains here a lot. I had a huge garage when I moved in and since then I chopped it down by half and made the other half a carport. The rain, and I might have mentioned that it rains a lot, is blown by...

A problem in Brazil

This is pretty bad news. There is a ton of Brazilian wood available in the UK and apparently in the US that is being strip mined and sold off illegally. I have no idea what a woodworker trying to be environmentally sensitive should do to help...
