Today's project was successful. I set up a @kingcanadacorporate 8" slow speed grinder with the Oneway Wolverine sharpening system. #turning #woodturning #lathe #leevalleytools #homedepot

To perfect the seam between these 2 1/4” thick slabs I like to identify the low spots by shining a light through the seams. A couple of passes with a razor sharp joiner plane closes the gap ready for dominoes and glue. #yegwoodworking #veritastools #leevalleytools #liveedgefurniture #walnutwood #handmadefurniture

#Carpentry technician Alan VanClieaf christened Georgian #Muskoka’s new RIKON Power Tools 14” Deluxe #Bandsaw by resawing paper-thin 1/32” pine veneer. The state-of-the-art equipment is housed in the campus’ 7,000-square-foot shop and will be used by pre-apprenticeship, Carpentry and Renovation Techniques, and General Carpenter Apprentice students. Thanks for hooking us up Lee Valley Tools! #christmasinjuly #constructiontoys #GeorgianCollege #rikonpowertools #leevalleytools

I finally made a proper shooting board for my #veritastools plane. Totally made from scrap wood in 20 minutes because I needed to trim these little mitres for the tall case clock door. Oh... the simple things we procrastinate about! . . . #shootingboard #mitreplane #miterplane #handtoolwoodworking #traditionaljoinery #traditionalwoodworking #customfurniture #customfurnituremaker #customwoodworking  #villagewoodwright #woodworking #woodwork #woodcraft #craftsmanship #woodworkingskills #furnituremaker #furnituredesign #woodworkingtips #finewoodworking #woodcraft #woodworkingtools #handmadefurniture #keepcraftalive #leevalleytools

Lee Valley sourced fine toothed Japanese saw blade. Handmade olive handle with brass pins with just a bit of beeswax finish. It's pretty but it'll be put to work! #saw #handcrafted #tools #handtoolsonly #leevalleytools #woodworker #handsaw #carving #blade #woodworker #custom #handmade #workshop #ottawa #ontario

Almost done. We just finished our veneered tray Sunday afternoon. This one needs just a bit more sanding then some finish and some Lee Valley box feet to finish it off. Had not worked with this tineo veneer before today but looking forward to see what the finish does to it to make it pop.

@steampunk_customz

Okay this piece I actually turned from a blank bar. Not bad for a first go. Also added a switch to the lathe board but have to move it down away from the pulley a bit more. #microlathe #taiglathe #taig #leevalleytools #artistoninstagram #clockcleaning #clocktools #newtool #newtoy #machining #machinist #hobbylathe #benchlathe #brassturning #brass #newhobby #lotsoffun #learningcurve

Day one is in the books and we are on our way to our tabletop veneered tray. We’ll be back at it tomorrow, capping edges cleaning up and adding feet.

@blackwalnutstudio

I love veneering. It’s my favourite way of woodworking. So many choices and no wood movement amongst other things. I’m at Lee Valley Tools on King. St. West this weekend teaching a veneered tray course. Giving a few options for people to chose from. Curly black walnut, French walnut and tineo.

A client bought an African Mahogany charcuterie board from us last week at the same time, they ordered a vintage knife with an African Mahogany handle...the first two blanks to the left of the centre-finding apparatus are from the same lumber as used for the charcuterie boards. Swipe left to see that “X” does mark the spot, or at least centre in this case. #centrefinfing #leevalleytools #veritastools #madeincanada #lathework #woodturning #knifehandles #honeydippers #holzkunst #kitchenware #tabkeware #woodenware #africanmahogany #sugarmaple #blackcherry #hardmaple #figuredmaple #handles #curlymaple #repurposed #reused #sheffieldsteel

And I'm hooked ladies and gentlemen. That's all it took to understand the rabbit hole that is turning. Mistakes were made, and chisel quickly dulled, but I'm looking forward to learning. #woodturning #turning #lathe #woodlathe #leevalleytools

This weekend at the downtown Toronto Lee Valley Tools store on King. St West we are going to be making veneered trays. They can be used for all sorts purposes like charcuterie boards, coffee servers and just plain trays. There are a couple of spots left and you can sign up by contacting the store. It’s a great way to jump into veneering and make something neat.

@edwardog

Super happy with where my edge jointing skills have reached. Able to produce seamless board glue-ups now. Oddly enough, my blockers turned out to be things like not taking a big enough bite out of the timber. I also found a reference in an antique store to holding the toe of the plane “overhand”, which considerably improved my results. Ancient knowledge is dope. Next step is chamfering the edges, a kanna finish, and beeswax. #handtoolwoodworking #handtools #woodworking #ottawamakers #leevalleytools

Not always about beer! Or scotch, so suprise it's antique time! This is my Grandfather's old Disston D8 handsaw. I spent a little time researching how to do this since the etching was still intact and the saw is special to me. First take it apart, used an old brass screwdriver to get the bolts off and then tried a few things to get the rust off. Best result were from @leevalleytools in Niagara Falls and using a Sandflex handblock by Klingspor @kingsplorcanada. Started with medium grit and then used a fine grit block for polishing. Next was using @3m and their fantastic Pro Grade PrecisionUltra Flexible Sandpaper roll 220 grit on the handle. Finished with #rhodesamericansteelwool 00 grit to get in the nooks and crannies. Used a @varathane stain and varathane combo in Mission Oak Gloss. Back to the blade. To bring back the etch I used #outers gunblue from @canadiantire. Follow the instructions and it's that easy. The brass fittings were restored with #ketchup and a soft toothbrush. #restoration #antique #wood #woodworking #handy #rust #oldtools #oldtoolsrule #old #handsaw #saw #disston #disstonsaw #disstonsawrestoration #leevalleytools #leevalley

Hello everyone ! Now that this thing I have called a FULL TIME JOB is on summer hiatus I can focus on giving you info on the best f*ckin’ things around here ... 😜 I know today’s post isn’t food or even Niagara related really, but I have to share considering today is a beauty day to be hanging any laundry out ... that being said I LOVE 💕 these clothespins( because yes, I also love doing laundry 😜😊) ! Yes , they work out to be about a dollar a piece , but no more plastic ones cracking in your hands from the sun or the wooden ones losing their spring or staining your clothes ! Pick these up at any Lee Valley store ! And of course they are great as stainless steel, will last a lifetime and are made in Italy 🇮🇹! Brava!!!😄😀😃 #leevalleytools #lifetimeclothespins #helpthenvironment #hangoutyourlaundry #besteffingthing

Made the trip up to Mom and Dad’s for their 50th anniversary bash, gifted them two #handmade chairs that I built from #cedarshop cedar and a set of plans from #leevalleytools #veritas. The chairs were a hit, and it was great to see the family all together, which doesn’t happen very often these days. #grimshaw #woodworking

I know what you’re thinking. Why would he have hand planes on the bandsaw? Well...this Saturday at Lee Valley Tools in Scarborough I’ll be running two 3 hour sessions, one on hand planes and the other on bandsaws. Two of my favourite tools. You can sign up by contacting the store.

What an amazing experience it was to have my wood wall decor art featured at Sugarbowl! Never in a million years would I have imagined that I could create art that others could sit by and enjoy! Through this art, it stretched my knowledge, accented the wood with other mediums, and tried to compliment the entire Sugarbowl space naturally. It took about 3 hours to hang the first 3 pieces, and to prep the other 2 pieces. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my very skilled friends. The support from friends and family to pull this off and make it a reality was overwhelming....I can’t say thanks enough! My wood wall decor art was intentionally made to look simple. Believe me, we spend way too much time second guessing and over exaggerating so much that it’s refreshing to get back to basics. The pictures don’t do the art justice. I’m sorry if you missed the show. The good news is that likely I’ll have another show in the upcoming future. I don’t know exactly when, but stay tuned! A huge thank you to @sugarbowlcafe to supporting local #yegarts ! Thanks to @mfzenari for making this happen! Thanks for the collaboration on the “Mantra” piece @a_delicate_retelling and @cassiethemaker .... (p.s. it’s my favourite piece! 🙌)! #yeg #sugarbowlcafe #art #wood #woodworking #walnut #maple #custom #redwood #calligraphy #poetry #steelart #liveedge #ecopoxy #pallet #palletproject #brick #yegeats

Spent the first part of #motivationmonday slicing up some #balticbirch #offcuts to make #drawerfronts for my #mobileworkstation #mobileassemblytable - I swear, this project will end, eventually! 🤔 . Had some spare pulls from a project way back - gotta make sure they're straight, right? Used my awesome #hardwarecentering bit from #leevalleytools . Had to ream out factory key holes in these #collapsibleshelf brackets to take 1/4-20s with my trusty #steppeddrill and #makitabrushless, held down with a trio of #besseyclamps . A light #sanding (you know, because it is just a workbench afterall 😉) - always wear a #dustmask kids . Install was a breeze using my #makita #rightangledrill . Tomorrow, those nifty table extensions (wait for it...it will be cool 😎), installing the drop-down shelf, and proper clamp storage! . But now, time to celebrate #canadaday and a family trip to #dq for a #peanutbutterbuster . .

@mountaintopjoinersshop

Got an assortment of doodads from Lee Valley yesterday. Somehow my O1 jointer plane blade lost its temper and refuses to stay sharp. I'm super careful about this when grinding, but apparently not careful enough. The bright side of this is having an excuse to upgrade to the PMV-11 steel blade- truly the cat's pajamas. The Bench Blade is low profile and clamps items that land closer to the dog hole than the Wonder Pups can handle. The Low Profile Work Stop with 20mm posts is for my Festool MFT, shown here next to the standard Clamping Elements. The fact my Camping Elements are all sanded clean of logos stands as evidence that they're to damn tall for standard 3/4" (nominal) stock. While many Festool products are very well thought out, I find that the clamping options for the MFT aren't among them. This along with a bulk order of sandpaper make up a good number of small things that make life in the shop easier for me.

Snuck a little #woodworking #workshoptime in this morning, before taking our new little dude to meet his #grandpa later! . A client reached out to me looking for an under-vanity #storagesolution that would match the existing finish . Decided to run a little #staintest with this #varathane ebony on some #birchplywood with #edgebanding . Side note: haven't cracked out the #tfal iron since leaving the #officejob six weeks ago - can't say I miss it 😉 . Had some off-cuts from my #drawer build, so used them to rig up a #prototype drawer with these super low-profile #framecasters #casters from #leevalleytools . Happy #canadaday weekend to all my fellow #canadians #canadian #woodworkers 🇨🇦 . . #freudtools #makita #rightangledrill #olfa #cheesecloth #stainingisntreallymythang

One of two chairs built and assembled from #cedar and a #leevalleytools plan as a present for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. The second should come together much quicker. This is a really comfortable deck chair, and I’m going to have to build a couple more to keep in the backyard.

From #workshoptime to #wildlife for some #fridayfun today with the little dude. .

Expected some guidance from my assistant, who mostly slept in the #ergobaby the entire time 🤔 . Cracked out the #kregpocketholejig to snap these (very shallow) #birchplywood drawers together. . Next step: slap the top down and figure out the extensions...but that'll have to be tomorrow. . We decided to celebrate #tgif and head out for a nature walk instead at #capsaintjacques .
