On today’s show, I discuss keeping green wood green, marking tapered octagonal legs, when to throw in the towel and re-cut a miscut tenon, and efficiency with hand tools.
On today’s show, I discuss removing paint splatters from saw handles, adding bolsters to shop made chisels, boiling your own linseed oil, high bevel angle blades in low bed angle planes, making serpentine front drawers, and sharpening cambered blades.
On today’s show, I discuss smoothing end grain to long grain transitions, more on in-cannel gouges, rust control in humid shops, working end grain with hand tools, and getting started with green woodworking.
On today’s show, I discuss cabinetmaker’s screwdrivers, rub joints, fishtail vs. skew chisels, portable workbenches, and my favorite woodworking books.
About 6 years ago, I spent a couple of months putting together a set of straight sided firmer chisels for my period tool kit. I sold that set of chisels last year, but I still have a few more that need some new handles.
