handscrew_sawscrew_remover.jpghandscrew clamp modified for sawnuts317 viewsThis works for nearly all sawscrews, and significantly reduces the risk of breaking off medallion screws. Drill a hole in one side of the clamp that is large enough to go around the saw nut -- and allow a screwdriver in to either loosen or tighten. I used a 9/16" Jennings bit on this one, and that works for all but the largest saw nuts.Charlie Driggs
sew_cbnt_26.jpgsewing cabinet -- prior leg repair99 viewsI had to saw this off to prepare the case for boring the leg socket -- and the prior repair effort involved a maple dowel inside a plug of poplar ... and didn't work very well.Charlie Driggs
P1010008~0.JPGTeamwork was shown by all77 viewsFour of the five logs produced very usable planks and slabs, and we split up into various activities to see how much we could get done ...Charlie Driggs
IMG_2590_2.JPGQuickie Jewelry Box110 viewsRepeated 'encouragement' to clean up my dresser resulted in a weekend project. Mahogany box, and due to material failures, a single width Cherry top. A little decoration with brass strips on either side (visible above, on edge). Nothing special, just quick.Charlie Driggs

IMG_2911.JPGWe're in from the pouring rain, and settling in for the festivities. 140 viewsMAG IV begins -- some new faces, some repeat faces. Bruce Love & son to the left, Steve Reynolds & Bill Ghio in front of Ed Minch on his hearth, Tom Dugan ... Gary Caron made a brief appearance and couldn't stay, and Michelle put up with it all with grace.Charlie Driggs

IMG_2799.JPGGalootaclaus 2016 23 views11 items, two for chunks of Bodark and Mesquite from Texas, two for chisels needing a boatload of care, a bit holder also needing some help, a box of #7 slotted flat heads from Sweden of all places, dual sheave blocks, a mystery #593 Stanley hammer without faces, a NIB set of 6 Greenlee Irwin style bits, some acid brushes, and a tubular thing that apparently grows that way - never saw anything like this before, but I'm guessing that grew in Texas too. Quite an assortment.Charlie DriggsDec 28, 2016
IMG_2082.jpgMortise & Tenon - Slit the envelope, and all this slides out28 viewsPacked in pine hand plane shavings, plain brown wrapper with a string tie, and note to the person gazing upon this for the first time, complete with real wax sealCharlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016
IMG_2083.jpgCloseup of the "introduction" to Issue #1 Mortise & Tenon29 viewsWhy, it's even written in 18th century English! Remember that "f's" are often "s's" ..Charlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016
IMG_0715.JPGMoxon vise 35 viewsThis is build to drop into the dog holes along the east edge of the bench. With a 20" opening between the screws and a 6" capacity, it can handle most all drawer boxes I would likely work on as well as any dovetail joints.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_5122.JPGsouth end of workbench31 viewsthe upper end of the two leg vises are visible in this shot. The advantage of being able to work from any side of this bench is particularly usable when making up panels for furniture, as being done in this shot.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_6685.JPGdetail of the older leg vise screw mount30 viewsThis may look a bit rough to some, but it is definitely a cleaner installation than the way it was mounted on my grandfather's 80, 90 or more years main bench. This one works quite wel. With two leg vises on the south end mounted 'in plane', it is quite easy to hold short sections (3-5 ft) of lumber for sawing to a line, although the height isn't ideal. Also very useful for holding items when needing to run round tenons with one of the hollow augers.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_1740.JPGbench -- looking from north to south, with general purpose bench31 viewsthe GP bench is on the right (grinders, etc); the neanderbuddy and occasionally used contractor size saw are both on rolling bases, which helps a great deal in this tight shop.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
IMG_0799.JPGhold down storage along the west side of the bench32 viewsThe stretchers were a major stiffener of this bench, as until these were added it would rack a bit when planing large boards. Adding them created storage for items otherwise awkward to fit close at hand.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
