What to do, part two - 0 replies

Ah those web-frames. Built the way norm does, but with a simple addition. I add a kicker to each frame. Just another stick, glued and screwed near the middle of the frame. This way, the drawer below will not tip when you open it. Screws are counter-sunk, one each end. The bottom web-frame gets two such kickers. Down here, ...

Just some of my handplanes in the shop. No L-V, or LNs here. There is also a small all metal spokeshave around, somewhere. As for the two wood bodied profile planes, they are shop made. There is also a 1/2” chisel plane made in the same style. All users.

My hammer "stable" - 2 replies

The group photo is the main hammers in the shop. The single hammer head still needs a handle. Oval eye, kind of small. Not real sure which kind of hammer it is. There is a small hammer in the group shot that i use all the time for small nails. The cross pean works nicely to start small nails with.

I had a nice supply of old pine flooring. Tongue and groove. From an old school building. Was asked IF I could find a use for this “junk”. “Hmm, I THINK I can…” Cleaned the boards up on the planer with an old set of knives. Ripped the tongue and grooves off. Now, I ha...

An old table top use? - 5 replies

I had an old table out in the shop. No legs, someone had cut them off long ago. I also had a few benchtop tools needing a “home’ to work at. I also had a pair of old sawhorses taking up space. Hmmm. Maybe a “marriage” is in order? I placed the top on the horses, screwed some plywood scraps to both the...

Clamps for odd shapes - 1 reply

I just use an inner tube or two. Wrap around, or if the project fits the inner tube, just slide it on. The clamping action is when I add AIR to the inner tube(s). These are bike tire inner tubes. If Imake a stool, one will go around each section with rungs. Since most of these inner tubes will take at least 40 psi, and some will even t...
