The best hand planes for the money

04-16-2010 03:49 AM by Shopsmithtom | 3 comments »

I keep telling myself that I’m not a collector…that I’m not on the slippery slope…and as long as I use them (it shouldn’t really matter if I have more than I actually need) I’m still ok-no intervention required. That said, I thought talk a bit about a couple of of the best hand planes out there for a relatively small amount of $$$. I’m referring to Keen-Kutters “K” series (Not the KK series, they are not the same) The K series (th...

Extremely Average #104: A Glaring Error in My Plan

04-16-2010 03:35 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, Today I made a couple of discoveries, one of which was about a resource for learning woodworking, that someone I had overlooked. I am sure that many of you already follow The Renaissance Woodworker blog, as do I. But today, while wondering around his site today I found that he has a huge collection of really well done podcasts on a vast array of topics. This was the the second of two discoveries which I made today. http://bit.ly/aMXi5I Brian

The Workshop #5: Workbench almost done!

04-16-2010 03:29 AM by Milo | 7 comments »

Wow, I can’t believe it’s almost done. I’ve been banging this workbench together FOREVER, and now I’m almost done. I just have to attach the clamps, do a little sanding on the top, and wha-la-lee, done! It’s a not a TRUE Nicholson workbench, I didn’t build the in table clamp, but it’s really close. Now I just need to get rid of a couple more things from the shop and I’ll be done. THEN WHAT WILL I DO?? ARCH! ;-) When I...

I am close to a finished workshop. I need some help for storage

04-15-2010 09:46 PM by sboyle | 3 comments »

Hello All, Over the last few years, I have been collecting all kinds of tools. I am moving my machine and boxes and boxes of hand tools and accesories. I am looking for a storage solution that would be wall mounted to hold all the hand tools and power tools. I was thinking of a wall hung cabinets to house my hand held power tools, and at least another to house my hand tools. I need to do this on the cheap side as I spent alot of money on the shop, but on the other hand I don’t want i...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #72: Holes....WoodWorking....and Wood Gathering Mode

04-15-2010 09:43 PM by frank | 7 comments »

Holes….WoodWorking….and Wood Gathering Mode I’ve been thinking lately about ‘holes’ and how they are used in my working of the ‘wood’. I had not noticed this trend until I started reviewing my photos here at LJ’s over the years. What seems to be coming out of this endeavor is that I use these holes as a point of ingress into my world of ‘wood art’. I have all-ways talked about boxes and the need to get out of your box, so that ...

Current Project

04-15-2010 09:43 PM by GeneL | 2 comments »

I have been trying to get back here and post something for days now. Work is just kicking my butt at the moment. So, this is my current project, which is nearing completion. This is my first set of cabinets and I am pretty pleased with the result. The body of the cabinet is Russian birch plywood. (Which I got a wonderful deal on a while back.) The face frame and doors are select pine. I used pine so that it would match the wood work in the room; all of which is commercial moldi...
