    GDR 600 hatchet

    Here she is, all cleaned up, re-hung and sharpened. The oak I used for the handle has a bit of runout, but since it's not a felling axe it should be fine. I've not had a chance to use it yet so I have no idea about the edge retention, but I do like the balance. I've sharpened it, not razor...

    That is a beautiful job. I want one too.

    New tools?

    I must have been a very good boy. Santa brought me a brand new wood turning lathe. 🙂

    GDR 600 hatchet

    A friend gave me this little hatchet as a thank you gift for some work I did for him. He's had it lying around for a while with the intention to do something to restore it. I placed it in a derusting bath for 48 hours and revealed a stamp. A bit of internet research later and I've...

    Is this cross grain?

    Yes, another name for it is ray fleck and is a good indication that the boards are quarter sawn.

    Wooden screw threads.

    I could imagine a book case or shelving unit where the adjustable shelves are held up by wooden bolts through the sides of the carcass. That would be such a cool item in a boy’s bedroom or in a bar/man cave.

    Wooden screw threads.

    Wow! Amazing! Really tight tolerances there. The low speed smoothness is also impressive.

    Waterproof wooden shelf for shower cubicle

    A quick search on Amazon got me this. Total Boat seems to be the holy grail in boat building circles, there may be competition worth checking out. I haven't done any research.

    Waterproof wooden shelf for shower cubicle

    I wasn't thinking of pouring epoxy, but giving it several protective, thin coats.

    Waterproof wooden shelf for shower cubicle

    I don't have any personal experience, but have been following a number of boat building on YouTube. The wood species I see most commonly used are purple heart, cedar and white oak. Then a marine varnish such as Total Boat should be good enough. At least UV damage wouldn't be a factor in a...

    Temperature & glue-ups

    Yes, the shelf/coat rack I made for my daughter for Christmas required a couple of hours in our spare bedroom to get the glue to set. Perhaps those tricky glue ups that are a race against time before the glue starts going off are better suited to the winter months.

    Post a photo of the last thing you made

    Well done with the creative way you used a piece that was essentially firewood.

    Barbie's Woodshop

    I think that the posters, pamphlets, instruction manuals and catalogues were what appealed to me most at first. I have the same Lee Valley catalogue and I do enjoy a bit of Parks and Recreation. The reference to the toilet paper hoarding at the start of the pandemic was also very clever.
