I’ve been looking to grow my hand plane collection for almost a year. A Stanley #6 kinda satisfied my tastes, I don’t make a lot of large projects, and nice Stanley #7’s and #8’s usually command premium prices. This #6 showed up on eBay, and I bid until I won. A whole $39.75 Man, this thing is HUGE! Well at least for me. It weighs just under 8 pounds. (from Patrick’s Blood & Gore website), and the sole and sides were evenly covered in rust. ...
To prepare for the next phase of the makeover, I demoed the old work bench that has served me well for the last 20+ years. Fortunately, it was built with drywall screws and came apart easily. I only had to pull the 6 nails that I used to fasten it to the wall. I called a friend and he came over and loaded it up. In a week or so, I’ll go help him set it up in his garage. I cleaned up the area and painted the part of the wall that I could get to. Then with a lot of pushing and pulling,...
The past 3 weeks have been crazy. Aside from my full time day job, kids baseball 5 nights a week, I actually had very little time to work on this case, BUT it had to be done. Because I was in such a scramble to get it done, I forgot to take pictures of most of the process. Without pictures there really is not much to write about. But there were some really interesting things that I did take pictures of. One… I had a really cool idea and contacted Paul ‘Shipwright’ and...

Not mine, but I thought that I would share this beautiful Loveseat with my fellow (and fellowette) LumberJocks. A lot of people would not appreciate the talent this took to create – I know you guys and gals will.
So when the last project was finished, I had a tough time with the picture taking! Ideally, the best pictures are taken in Sunshine (or at least outside), but that’s not always possible without waiting a few days…I’ve seen quite a few different Light Tents here on LJ’s, and thought the time had come to build one for myself…The idea is simple, to make a box with no sides, over which can be draped a white bed sheet or similar cloth… Lights are added to either...
Kris Williams of Rocky Blue Woodworks shows us how to cut perfect circles on a band saw including how to make the sled need to do it!
My buddy, Kris Williams has to make his own Beetle Kill Pine dowels for various projects. See how he does it using a router table and a few feather boards!
I was asked to build a Chuppah for a wedding using small diameter, nearly green aspen logs. It was a challenge finding the logs but building it sure was fun! How do you incorporate logs into a wedding? It seems to be a growing trend – this is the third wedding project I’ve worked on. Please share things you’ve made for weddings by posting pictures below! If it’s a log item, I’ll share it on my FaceBook page with a back link to your page!
