    Arnfest 2012 Swap Meet Photos--Part 1

    I posted some pics of last year's Arnfest(1) and it went over pretty well (see here). So I made sure I got some more shots this year. It was pretty cold, maybe 40 F in a 20+ mph wind, so I didn't take a lot of time to pose the shots--I had to keep moving. I'll try to post by category...

    You guys don't seem that excited...

    ...Given that THE OLYMPICS(1) ARE STARTING AND OMG IT'S THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD, or so I've been told if I watch certain TV channels. I mean, given that it's in your front yard, on your sidewalk, and probably flowing out of the kitchen faucet, are any of you really interested or are...

    Oneida Cyclone Installation

    Part 1--"Hang 'Em High" Back in November, I got my Oneida dust collector dropped on my driveway. Over my New Year's break, I finally got some time to try to get some of my garage back, and put at least the cyclone up in the shop. I spent an evening putting up a hoisting point in my shop...

    Relief carving, aided by an overarm router

    A year ago I was working on a set of thrones for a client, and posted them here (https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/work-in-progress-medieval-thrones-t47174.html). They liked them so much that they ordered a second set. The primary difference will be differently carved panels. I used a...

    Tenoner Restoration Project

    About two years ago, I bought a tenoner. Not exactly something you find in most shops, but I make a lot of stuff using mortise and tenon joints, and some of them are tough to do correctly because they're on the end of S-shaped chair legs and are hard to hold. I'd tried the bandsaw, tenoning...

    A day late for Halloween

    From the OWWM list, a 20" Dewalt RAS set for a horizontal cut to make timber braces: Yes, the guard has been removed to make this cut.:) No, I was not involved in any way. I live 2000 miles from this guy.:) Oh, since you're probably wondering, here's the second cut (with the guard back...

    I think my wife wants me to be a collector...

    Last weekend while I had a gob of folks over at the house doing woodworking (see https://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/a-weekend-in-the-factory-t55093.html), my wife and one of the other ladies went off to a local flea market--where they proceeded to buy up an example of every type of wood plane...

    First video--Greenlee 227 auto-feed mortiser

    Well, I finally figured out how to get a video down to reasonable size and post it on Youtube. Here you go--me using my Greenlee 227 autofeed mortiser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE7Y9nxYoek This is a 3/8" chisel making mortises in pine. Each mortise is 3/8" x 1-1/2" and about 1" deep...

    A weekend in the "factory"

    I built my shop to look kind of like an old factory, brick on one side with keystoned arches over the windows, clerestory for extra light, etc: It's also pretty good sized--22'x26'. That means not only can I fit a lot of machines, I can have most of them in use at the same time. I'm in a...

    Is this what you guys call a Bootfair?

    I've been hanging out here for nigh on a year, and have been trying to figure out this "bootfair" thing. Sometimes it's described like a flea market, where regulars have a booth and sell used stuff (OK, junk) every week. Other times it sounds more like a swap meet, with folks showing up in a...

    Backyard shed, American style

    Since, as Mark Twain said, we are divided by a common language, I always find it interesting when the folks on this forum talk about a "garden shed" but come up with these very solid concrete block and brick structures suitable for holding off the Normandy invasion for a few hours (or until you...

    For you wooden plane enthusiasts...

    On another thread, I got a little razzing for wanting to put my wooden planes on display in the house instead of to work in the shop. Since y'all are so concerned, I figured I'd give you a look at most of them. I'm not an expert in this area, and have done zero research. So I'll let you plane...

    Work in progress--Medieval Thrones (update March 11)

    Since I’ve been hanging around for a few weeks, I guess it’s time to post an example of the stuff I make. I belong to a medieval recreation group (or re-creation, depending on how hard core you are), and as a result most of my projects are medieval furniture. Usually they’re portable, since...

    Can anybody ID this jointer/planer?

    ...Or, I suppose, I should say planer/thicknesser? One of the guys on the Old Woodworking Machine list (owwm.org) has the below machine and would like to identify the manufacturer. It's got about a 16" cutterhead (400 mm?). The only markings are the words Marco.tipo, then Matr No 3845 014...
