Hand Plane restoration

08-28-2014 07:53 AM by skidooraceing | 3 comments »

I do not get on here very often but when I do I really enjoy reading and seeing what everyone else does with hand planes and wood working. I wanted to post some pictures of my first ever hand plane restoration. My first was plane was not one with very much value so if I messed up it would not be a big deal. I had bought about ten rusty planes at an auction for like $40 dollars so that I could fix them up and use them. One of the planes was a Trustworthy and believe its a no. 4 (Stanley ...

Custom Guitar Pedalboard #2: Open Sez Me...

07-08-2008 12:46 PM by Budman | 3 comments »

Four passes thru the table saw, and I now have a box & lid… I sketched a ‘side-view’ plan of the insert which will fit into the lid… This way, if he doesn’t like the layout of the board, we can build a new insert and still use the overall box. We’re aiming pretty high… this will have two levels for smaller pedals in the center, on the right side it will have a place for two larger (long, like a wah) pedals, on the left an area for swi...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #21: Glamdring, Summer Awards and, Left Overs

07-29-2008 06:27 AM by frank | 3 comments »

Glamdring, Summer Awards and, Left Overs ....and so it ‘just is’. All good stories must have a place of start….then some middle ground….and then comes the ‘whats all left over’ or maybe I should say, the ‘left overs’. And as such, it seems fitting that since this is about ‘hobbit holes in my-world’....I should bring in one famous player, who working with me helped get this story going back in the early days of summer. That bein...

Bookcase Challenge04 #2: Building the "crown"

10-21-2008 08:14 AM by lightweightladylefty | 3 comments »

This bookcase was designed to camouflage ductwork and to replace a portion of the book storage from a 10’ x 6’ shelving unit that we removed to remodel our dining room. The next three pictures show the ductwork and the steps from paneling to painted drywall. The horizontal ducts were covered in oak with rails and stiles cut to enclose lighting panels to match the kitchen woodwork and lighting (not shown, around the corner to the left). Next I began working on the crown to e...

Workshop Ramblings #3: Time Well Spent in the "Toy Box"

02-15-2009 11:14 PM by brianinpa | 3 comments »

I woke up this morning and saw there was a new dusting of snow on the ground, so it appears winter is not giving up just yet. I flipped on the weather channel to see what the temperature was and saw 29 degree f. That wasn’t going to deter me from my plans. I started a fire in the fire place (the back side of the fire place and chimney are inside my garage/shop so the fire heats the house and the shop) so I could get rid of all the small scraps and cut-offs I had pilling up. My shop and...

New Crib #6.....Finally Got 'er Whipped

11-28-2009 09:46 PM by MOJOE | 3 comments »

Well, I finally finished up my son’s crib….well ahead of my Feb. deadline I might add. Once everything was mocked up and fit nicely, I took the headboard portion off and sprayed the finish on in 2 sections. I used Bullseye Sealcoat tinted with 40 drips of Transtint Medium Brown (40 drips cause I didn’t have a measuring device). Anyway, sprayed on 6 coats with 320 sanding between each. The final coat was buffed with 0000 steel wool. I am pretty happy with how it turned o...

It Didn't Take Long...

05-14-2010 03:15 AM by Bobby | 3 comments »

...for the wife to get me going on another project. I swear she stays awake half the night thinking up things for me to do. I no sooner got the wall units finished when I found myself up to my knees in 2×10s. I’ve started the new deck. I actually started the framing yesterday – but I started seeing that something was seriously wrong as I went along. I was trying to square off a section and just couldn’t do it. After about 2 hours I decided to do some measurning...

Stupidity or How to Destroy a Dado Max in Easy Stroke

01-26-2011 06:04 AM by bigfish_95008 | 3 comments »

Sunday I had the Dado Max out to cut some dados in a box that the scroll saw will sit on – the scroll saw stand is just to tall. I set up the first dado and it cut beautifully and then disaster struck, as Lowell Thomas would say, instead of turning the router off and unplunging the previously plunged router I lifted it out of the fixture, running at 25000 rpms and about an 1.5” of bit exposed – almost. The bit caught on the edge of the fixture lifting it off the clamp and st...

Greene & Greene Inspired Crib #3: Lots of Mortises and Tenons

08-28-2011 04:27 AM by Alan S | 3 comments »

So since I finished shaping the legs and horizontal rails, the huge task of cutting all the joinery has begun. It may not be obvious from the pictures I’ve shown so far, but the surfaces that the vertical slats mate into is sloped by about 2 degrees. That slope is just enough to make the tenons difficult to cut. I don’t have a mortising machine, so I chopped them using my drill press and hand chisels. Here are the vertical slats I started out with: I cut the tenon s...
