Old Planes - Restore?

1822 days ago by reggiek | 10 comments »

I was given these three very old planes and was wondering whether they are worthy of restoration? They are a bit rusty…some of the wooden handles need reglueing and finishing….and the blades need sharpening or replacing….There is no brand or markings on any of them other then “Made in USA” on the smaller one. Any ideas? and this one and the last one

router jigging: edge guide and mortise

1822 days ago by AaronK | 5 comments »

So the next step in expanding my routing power is to get that thing banging out mortises – i like the idea of loose tenons, so I looked for a jig design with that flexibility built in. The router is by far the most accurate tool in my shop, much more so than my table saw, so that how i’ve been leaning. anyway, I looked at some jigs, most significantly the ones one these pages:http://www.woodsmith.com/issues/147/videos/setting-up-and-using-the-router-jig/http://thecraftsmanspath...

hand carved redwood bench #4: a smidgen of progress

1822 days ago by kolwdwrkr | 10 comments »

Well we were able to put about 6 more hours into the bench project this weekend. The display cabinets have been consuming our free time, but I’ve decided to stop working on it at 5 and work from 5 to 8 on the bench. We still need to sand it all, screw it all together and shape the arm rests. It’s just sitting there and the mortises are what’s holding it together. I put the seat slats down onto it so I could test the comfort. I need to shape the front slat and radious al...

Wanting to start with wood works!

1822 days ago by mitchF | 5 comments »

I am new here and I am really interested if I might pick up a few skills when it comes to wood works. I hope I could share a bit of the things that I know or will discover that is connected with wood works. Recently , I discovered a site when my uncle ordered a plaque, I think it was really nice, they offer different hand carved plaques, shadow boxes and more. This is one of those plaques: I’m not that good with my hands,and If you have any tips for me on what can I do so t...

Desk rebuild #4: Set backs

1822 days ago by Ben | 1 comment »

So I moved on to making drawers for the desk this weekend. I had some extra Macore stock that I had already cut up and turned out to be just the right size for the sides and back of the drawers, so I was in luck! Since I couldn’t find the directions for the dovetail jig, it took me a little while to set it all up correctly. I finally got everything set up OK. Unfortunately, as I started up my router for the second dovetail I heard the sound of something shattering and pieces of pl...

turnings #10: Newfound respect for hollow-form turners

1822 days ago by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

Well, I tried out the tools I got from mom for my birthday recently. Of note: 1) My 1/2” Sorby Spindlemaster was not a good indicator of how the 3/4” and 1” behave. I’ve been using the 1/2” however I liked, never reading up on how to use it, nor watching any videos. I recently watched one and thought “Huh, I’ve been using it entirely wrong.” I’ve been holding it flat, and using a combination of things with both hands and the tool rest t...

And So It Begins... #3: ...Getting over the Fear!!

1823 days ago by ChrisN | 4 comments »

As I think back, every time I bought a new tool it was in the hope that this tool would be the one that would make sure that every cut, or hole, or edge, or…whatever, would be perfect. I wouldn’t have to worry about ruining a perfectly good piece of wood. Every project I had pictured in my mind would be easily translated through my hands and my new tool into a work of art. Yet everytime I opened the box, and set up the new tool, I found myself making the same timid steps forwar...

Structural Crack Filling

1823 days ago by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...
