In depth two-hour videos about the tools we make at Hand Tool Woodworking:
MAKE A REAMER Pt. 1 with ELIA BIZZARRI
Starting with the blade, we look at various types of steel, making a blade from a scrap handsaw blade, grinding the blade, sharpening, honing and turning a burr. Then we look at wood options (lumber and log), sawing the blade slot by hand and by machine, and turning the taper to match the blade. We focus on making a six degree reamer for chairmaking, but the same techniques would work for a variety of sizes and tapers. Plus a Q&A session.
MAKE A REAMER Pt. 2 with ELIA BIZZARRI
The shaving lands are cut with a chisel and drawknife. We adjust the cutting depth with either a permanent wedge or an adjustment screw, then we work on two different types of handles, a fixed dowel and a removable tapered handle. We taper the top end of the reamer to a point and we spend some time talking about using the reamer in a variety of settings. Plus a Q&A session.
