Scraper Plane #1: Charles Hayward Scraper Plane Build

03-09-2015 12:43 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

I love card scrapers and I use them a lot. Perhaps that is one of the reasons that I now have osteoarthritis in my right thumb. Bending a card scraper to make those beautiful little shavings is now a pain …. literally. The answer seems to be some sort of scraper holder or scraper plane and since I discovered Charles Hayward's great book in pdf format, I have often thought about the plane he describes. It uses a Stanley #80 scraper blade, a replacement for which can conveniently be bough...

Building Some Chevalets, a Class Action #1: Wood Gloat and a Little Glueing

07-18-2015 02:38 AM by shipwright | 25 comments »

OK, I’m a little impulsive but I work quickly so maybe I can pull this off. I’m showing my jewellery box at the Sooke Fine Art Show in a week and will be doing four hours of chevalet / marquetry demos there as well. When I have done this in the past I have always had inquiries about classes which I have always put off because a) I didn’t feel I was good enough or experienced enough to teach marquetry and b) because to teach this kind of marquetry to a class of more than one ...

Hollow and Round Moulding Plane Build

06-22-2015 09:17 AM by Mattyboy | 5 comments »

After the frustration of eBay, Etsy and tool dealers, I decided to experiment with making my own hollow and round moulding (OK, I’m American but I like the Brit spelling better) planes. Some of you will think I’m a heretic for this, but I made pairs of #6, #8 and #10 by laminating parts together. I am writing this in the hopes it will inspire others to do the same. What follows is the sequence of a typical build. Since this is an experiment and I’m not trying to make p...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #1: Preparing for the build

02-11-2015 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...

For the top of this art Nouveau style coffee table top which is 60” wide by 80” long, needing to cut a perfect ellipse onto 1” thick 17 ply apple plywood. To make this cutting jig I used 3/4” and 1” thick apple plywood which is very expensive and very durable and hardly ever warps. A. Starting with the dovetail slotted base that screws to the bottom side of the top when cutting. The base is 1” thick 22” square, then route in two 1” wide 5/8&#...

Small hand planes making #1: The making of 11 small hand planes

04-11-2015 01:41 PM by mafe | 23 comments »

Small hand planesthe making of 11 small hand planes. This blog is a mess… Now it’s said, I usually try making my blogs in a fair order and to make it easy to understand, this one jumps from one plane to the other, one process to the other and even the pictures are so different of quality, that this must be the big mess Mads blog… When this is said, I still think it can be relevant and perhaps even to some inspiration, since it gives a picture of the methods I use and diff...

Simple Jigs and Techniques #11: Modular Veneer Press Build

02-03-2015 12:14 AM by shipwright | 5 comments »

Just a few more pictures and explanations than the project post had room for. The concept is simple and can be adapted in many ways but here is what I did. First off I selected knot free parts of 8’ construction 2X4’s and ripped them into 1X4’s. Then I laminated them up in half laps so that the result looks like a box joint but is easier to get perfect fit and glue ups. I used PVA glue because I had it around and threw a few staples in to keep things aligned while I quick...

Ribbon and Bow Box Techniques

03-19-2013 03:30 PM by Lenny | 23 comments »

Enough people have asked me how the Bow Boxes I made and posted were crafted that I figured a blog was warranted. My post is here “Bow Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/68845. I have seen others make the boxes and thought you might like to see different interpretations of them. bigogre has done several. Here is one of his: “Box”: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73998. moonls recently posted one with wonderful banding in the ribbons and bow. See it “here...

Oak Leaves Dining Table #1: Carving the Legs

12-04-2014 08:06 PM by Dennis Zongker | 26 comments »

Every once and a while as a craftsman, a job will find you which will give you new life and inspiration. Also bringing out the best of your abilities as a craftsman. It isn’t easy finding someone that likes you own individual style as a furniture maker where you can build pieces that you have only dreamed of building someday for someone. It has been kind of a slow year and I never dreamed that this one person would just walk in my business and request pieces of such intricate detail ...
