Save Time Sharpening With A Strop

The Old School of thought is to use your tools until way past dull when they start damaging the work, then break down and haul out your sharpening gear for a long messy sharpening session.

Now I know we all love the old school tools and ways of building things, but lock up your brakes here, stop the insanity.

What insanity? If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got. In this case it’s a long dirty sharpening session. Are you ready to rethink this process? Good!

Tightening Up Your Craftsmanship

Craftsmanship in a word is just a word. We envision the ensemble of things we understand it to mean when we hear it, or think of it. We know what it is when we see it, on it’s face, we recognize it, but it is more than just a few simple words.

Busting a 2×4 in half with a sledge hammer is not an example of craftsmanship, it is however an example of demolition. The important thing to understand, while many people are capable of performing demolition, far fewer are capable of performing craftsmanship, even though they have the ability to recognize it, or even purchase such things for themselves.

But we all have the capacity to learn and do if we apply ourselves.

Cool Shooting Board Features and Capabilities

A Shooting Board is commonly known as a fixture that holds a board at a specific angle, such as 45 or 90 degrees, and allows most commonly the end grain to be cut accurately, but this is not the limit of what a shooting board and it’s potential capables are. Let me share with you what our shooting boards do differently, and better!

Setting Angles.jpg
Pick angles as fine as you’ll want to, and set the fence. Simple and accurate as that.

Tour a Steam Powered Sawmill

Published by under Documentary,Woodworks Library

The Phillips Brothers Mill has been a sawmill in operation since 1897 in and around Oak Run California. Oak Run is located approximately 25 miles east of Redding California. The Mill started as water powered, and was moved around to a couple different locations during the early part of the 20th Century, and has been powered by a Steam Boiler at the same location since 1933. Today, it is the last fully steam powered mill in America, and still owned by the Phillips Brothers family. Today it is part of a Phillips Family Trust and resides on a forest preserve of 920 acres which is meant as a sustainable forest for use by the mill. In 2002, the mill was listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Our Shooting Boards Make A Difference

When it comes to shooting boards, Traditional designs come with limitations that have to be accepted. The downside to this is that these limitations become part of the mental lexicon that woodworkers carry in their mind when they consider the capabilities of the shooting board. I’d like to take a moment or two and address how our shooting boards help overcome many of these limitations.

Shooting Boards for the Veritas Miter Plane

Yep, We’ve got them!

Veritas – Lee Valley released their new Veritas™ Miter Plane earlier this year. Think of it as like the LN-9 Iron Miter, a low angle block plane with a 2 inch wide iron, Veritas styling and improved ergonomics. It is ambidextrous and cuts great from either the left or right hand. It even comes with a great ergonomic handle which improves controllability and helps it feel great to use in the hand. Another big plus is that the blades for this plane are available in both 01- and PM-V11 steels. I prefer either of theses steels to A2 because they sharpen to a sharper level, and PM-V11 has incredible durability and edge retention which is critical for planing end grain. We opt for the PM-V11 when we can.

Maintenance Sharpening is Faster Sharpening.

Published by under Sharpening

Sharpening. To many, it’s do or dread and do anyway. Listen, it doesn’t have to be the chore that it can be, you just have to change the approach. We did and we offer the tools we developed to help make it easier for everyone.

Many of us have used the approach of working a tool until it is good and dull. The reason why is that it can be a lot of work to sharpen, so we hold out till we have to. There are two downsides to this. It is a lot of work to resharpen once you let tools get this dull, you sometimes have to rebuild the edges over again, and the other is that the indicators that we are this dull are that the tool is pushing hard, doing a poor job, or even starting to damage our work.

Why do we wait so long to sharpen?

Shooting Boards are More Versatile than you Remember

Published by under Shooting boards,Woodworks Store

Once upon a time Shooting Boards in woodworking were made for use at 90 degrees, and others for 45 degrees, and a few could do both. It was hard to keep them accurate and sometimes they took up a lot of space.

Then, Shooting Boards Evolved.

For seven years now, we have been offering our shooting boards to woodworkers worldwide.

We love precision. We care about Craftsmanship. From the work of our hands, we wanted more. From day one we have offered shooting boards made from Baltic Birch, the most stable wood available for woodworking. We still do. We feel they are the most accurate shooting boards available, capable of accuracy of up to 0.001 inch.

Over the years, all our shooting boards as well as the other tools we offer have been purpose made. Thousands of hours making meticulously and purposefully in a one man shop. After processing tons of personally selected Baltic Birch Plywood into thousands of tools and parts, we still offer our original shooting board, the “Deluxe Shooter” made to the same specifications we started out with. It has been joined by many other shooting boards that share it’s basic design, and offer woodworkers all the same accuracy and flexibility possible.
