Pine Pantry Cupboard #3: Face frame, and a little assembly

05-28-2017 04:44 AM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

See IF I can get caught up here… Top of the face frame while clamped up…..someday, I will have shorter clamps…Hard hat area! Test fit the top webframe, as well.. Down at the bottom, I did find a few shorter clamps….bottom webframe sitting there, out of the way…. Now the cussing can begin. One man shop, with barely enough room for my fat body…...and I am dancing around with this “thing” that is an inch taller than I am, and over ...

Building a 25' Ply on Frame Cabin Cruiser #12: Beginning the c/l installation

05-28-2017 02:57 AM by AlTriolo | 0 comments »

I’m not sure why I only took one photo. There are 13 frames plus the transom and stem. I trimmed about 11 of those. Pre-cutting the groves really helped! The spacers did too. I will not complete port side before beginning starboard. To help keep everything in line, I will work side to side as I move forward. I’ve also learned that it’s A LOT easier to bend the wood for a 25.5’ boat than for a 14’er. The curves are not as pronounced. I still need the clamps though...

Stanley 51/52 Shooting Plane #1: I am now the proud owner of this rare plane

05-28-2017 02:15 AM by Pjonesy | 8 comments »

I have just acquired this quite rare Stanley 51/52 Shooting Plane in very original if a little rusty condition.It is my intention to clean the plane up to make it usable again, so I can use it in my model making. I really like using hand tools as much as possible when making models, I think it gives me much greater control and accuracy. Does anyone know where I can get an original hold down bracket with wing nut, washer and cup head bolt. I have acquired a non original bracket but an o...

Another Yard Sale Score

05-27-2017 11:24 PM by handsawgeek | 0 comments »

I’m very happy to be back on the Spring yard sale circuit again!This time I found this nice little smoother for five bucks. There is no indication of the manufacturer – it just has “Made In USA” on the sole.Overall it’s in pretty good shape. Unlike other planes I have found at yard sales, the blade on this one is still reasonably sharp.Time for me to ‘Git to Fettlin’ !! Cheers…

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1835: Finding a Balance

05-27-2017 01:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It seems like just about every morning I intend on writing a blog, and then I get distracted. By the time things settle down, it is usually too late to write a post. I suppose it is just part of the business growing, and that is a good thing. I do, however, miss talking with you all and sharing what I am creating with you. I feel odd only posting when we have an update and we have new patterns. It makes me feel like I am only here part-time and I miss out on visiting with you all. I hope to b...

Building a Bandsaw Fence #3: The end

05-27-2017 04:07 AM by Rick M | 7 comments »

Not much interest in this so I’ll wrap it up. It’s done other than paint is drying. At some point I’ll put templates up on my personal blog (link in sig). If some future person comes along and is interested and I haven’t put them up yet, just send me a message. That’s blue tape on the sides. The top will be blue, the sides natural. And yes, my brush sucks. Tomorrow I’ll buy a new one and hopefully get a better finish. #ibuilditblue

The Anarchist's Anarchist Tool Chest

05-26-2017 09:22 PM by clperdue4342 | 3 comments »

Yes, there’s supposed to be two “anarchists” in the title… I’ve read a bit about the anarchist’s tool chest. I started with a tool chest similar to the common anarchist’s tool chest, though at the time I didn’t know I was an anarchist. I thought I was just a guy with a wood box with tools that mattered to no one but me. And of course this all started before the internet; even before The New Yankee Workshop aired. So, before the anarchist̵...
