In the last two years, Stuyvesant High School, known nationwide for the top-notch science students it produces, has invested millions of dollars in state-of-the-art woodworking equipment for its shop. The 90-year-old high school's mission has always been to combine superior academics with...

Letters

When I was a small boy I was fascinated by the woodworking my grandfather did. He made and repaired intricate clock cases, window sashes, door frames and furniture and he used old-time tools like a froe. adz, wooden planes, scorps and breast drill. He had the patience to explain tools to me and how to use them. The two points he instilled in me were quality of work and appreciation of tools. My father repaired and replaced ornate woodwork in railway passenger cars in the days when most all...

Golden Oak Finish

Golden Oak is a low-luster, open-pore finish I produce with one stain and one glaze. This finish brings out the best qualities of oak by reproducing the timeless look of rich, aged shellac. I learned about Golden Oak when I first started finishing down in South Florida. At the time, it was wildly popular among the many transplanted Northerners who had grown weary of the dark, sophisticated woodwork of their sunless New York City digs. You can use either lacquer or varnish for your sealer and...

Designing Beyond

And Tomorrow Weeps In a Blind Cage To achieve the cagelike effect in this turning, john Wooller, a native of Victoria, Australia, turned a piece of jarrah burl from both sides, relocating its axis between turnings. Stephen Hughes of Aspendale Gardens, Australia, turned and carved this 2-ft.-tall egg from Huon pine, then embellished it with dog hair and linen thread. Webster's dictionary defines a turner as a person who shapes objects on the lathe. But as the pieces pictured here show, today's...

This forged steel hold-down's design was old when George Washington was woodworking on a cherry tree, but it still proves remarkably useful. With the tap of a mallet you can quickly adjust it to handle thick or thin workpieces. And varying clamping pressure is simply a matter of varying how hard you rap it with your mallet. On the downside, the long bar means you can...

Rubbing Out A Satin Finish

A Final Treatment That Leaves Your Finish Feeling as Good as It Looks good for a finish to look great, but if you want a finish that will feel as g lt x gt d as it looks, you'll need to rub it out. Rubbing out a finish means working it with a mild abrasive such as pumice or steel wool. The abrasive produces extremely fine, uniform scratches that go in the direction of the wood grain, helping to hide both brush marks and the orange peel texture common to sprayed finishes. And, while the result...

Inca 205 Bandsaw

To balance a bandsaw wheel, drill shallow holes inside the rim at the heavy points on the wheel. To balance a bandsaw wheel, drill shallow holes inside the rim at the heavy points on the wheel. It's worth noting two other factors about handsaws. First, most handsaw tables tilt 45 to the outboard side, but not all tilt toward the column. If you want to jig up to cut dovetails on your bandsaw, make sure the table will tilt at least 8 to the left so you can cut the pins. See chart. Second, don't...

Veritas Deluxe Bench Holddown

When Veritas Tools designs a product it likes to improve on what's already on the market, and its hold-down is no exception. This steel and aluminum alloy hold-down works much like the Record version docs it has a traditional hold-down body with an adjustable lever arm. But unlike the Record, you can mount the Veritas in a simple V in.-dia. dog hole, so it's easy to move around the bench. This hold-down is easy to adjust, but I found it difficult to apply heavy clamping pressure because the...
