I am an infill plane maker and a recreational woodworker in the frozen north. I currently serve on the board of directors for the Alaska Creative Woodworker's Association.
In my spare time on the evenings and weekends, I'm building a log house. Other than hiring out the log package and some of the excavation and roofing, I've done everything else by myself.
I have used the project as an excuse to do woodworking projects. For instance, I've had to mortise all of the electrical outlets in the log walls. I also made my own loft floor decking (see photos on my project page). I have a stack of hickory lumber in the basement waiting to become the kitchen cabinets.

There seems to be one (unfortunate) truism in the tool world: “Sooner or later every tool gets used as a hammer.” With that in mind, the first tool to come out of Raven’s Edge Toolworks is a brass plane adjusting hammer. It proved to be a gr...
I finished making the vertical cuts for the dovetails in the sole plate. I clamped a piece of scrap wood cut at 75 degrees as a guide for my hacksaw blade. The guide block began to wear and lose accuracy after a couple cuts. At that point, I ma...
I was browsing the Popular Woodworking web site about a week ago when I innocently poked on a link to infill plane maker Sauer and Steiner. The site described how the dovetailed metal bodied planes are made using hand tools that most people alrea...
