Unpopular Planes #1: Unpopular, Unloved or just overlooked?

08-15-2012 10:00 PM by Johnnyblot | 3 comments »

In my time here on LJ’s I have seen, [especially Handplanes Of Your Dreams topic] what great lengths many of us go to, to bring a woodworking tool, in this case Hand Planes back from the junk heap to a full [wood]working life! The big boys, particularly here in the UK are /were:- 1) STANLEY, made in USA & England 2) RECORD, made in England But there are many others available that have not, shall we say been taken to our hearts like those above. So here I’d like to ...

Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan #5: One Last Fillip and Then the Formal Portrait of the Pal O' Mine

10-04-2012 09:56 PM by Lee Barker | 3 comments »

You’ll notice on the plans that the knob on the ends of the rockers is just sort of added on. I chose to incorporate another curve, opposite, which blends the end into the rocker better. It’s also easier to rout without burning it. It’s also a heckuva lot easier to sand. The perforations in the ends of the rockers were an afterthought. I like them. The leg roundovers are 1/4”, the rest of the parts are 3/8”. Linda the artist kept the steed around a few...

Garage/Shop Makeover #1: Garage/Shop Makeover 1 (the design)

01-25-2013 04:43 AM by Drew - Rock-n H Woodshop | 3 comments »

Well, it has begun. My garage/shop makeover will begin in the spring. I have to have it done before April so I can start building another crib. My garage as it sits right now has no storage whatsoever besides two metal shelving units. All my other tools, or sitting on the floor. I do not even have a wood rack to speak up. My clamps sit on the floor or up against a tool until I need to use them. I am in desperate need of storage and functional space in my garage shop. This is a design that I c...

FWW Build Off '08 #4: Wine Rack Installment #4

04-24-2008 03:22 PM by RusticElements | 3 comments »

Well, the rough sanding on the outside is done down to 150 grit. I used a belt sander with medium grit to do the bulk of it then an RO palm sander for the 150. The belt sander is an absolute no no if working on a cedar canoe but on the maple it worked great. There’s always a few gaps between the planks that have to be filled. I mixed up some filler using white wood glue (dries clear) and maple sanding dust to use as filler. I used epoxy and sanding dust when building the canoe and th...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #32: My Soul of Maple

09-20-2008 04:14 PM by frank | 3 comments »

My Soul of Maple Oh how the warmth of your glow, tolerates my being….—i feel as though there remains a connection,as we pass into fall….—why it was only yesterday that a seed fell to ground,much like in the beginning….—our time together often grows weary,as in the exiled seasons…. Can our love still survive against the onslaught, of hurled bark insulation….—where were it not for fire burnished passions,coming forth as desire̷...

Garage Re-Do #3: Getting The Facts

01-28-2009 04:25 PM by MyOldGarage | 3 comments »

Ok, so I have to know where I’m starting out from and what I have so I did a little inventory last night. Below is the items I have in the garage. Wow . . . that’s a lot of stuff. I’m thinking some items might just need a re-do to gain functionality. I have one item that is on spindly 2×2 legs, but I might be able to add some addition boards/bracing and put it on wheels for a rolling work table. My next course of action will be to plug all this into Sketchup and re...

Bandsaw Recon - The beginning #1: Starting from Scratch

11-29-2009 11:45 PM by davidroberts | 3 comments »

Starting a new old arn project like I need another hole in my head. Craftsman – King Seeley 12” bandsaw, model# 103.24280, circa 1950s. Dirty but not much rust. I have removed the upper assembly to start the cleanup. I’ll post more as I go along. You can see some nice examples of refurbs of this model on OWWM.
