Ok, first rust hunt of this season is done. Picked up an old Plow plane for less than$15 Kind of nasty, though That metal stril is called the skate. Shouldd be a nice, bright, and shiny steel, NOT a rusty slab of… The wedges were…eh, ok Wasn’t any cutter/iron in it. The wedge for the cutter was only half there. The other wedges made getting this plane apart a bit of a bother. You see, they are shaped in reverse. tap on the bulb end to LOOSEN the wedg...

If anyone is interested in helping me out and surprise him, I will be driving to.Nebraska on early june.for a we...
An older couple were lying in bed one night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk. She said, “You used to hold my hand when we were courting.” Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep. A few moments later she said, “Then you used to kiss me.” Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep. Thirty seconds later she said, “T...
This one is pretty self explanatory. A hold down jig that can be used for countless items. Joint one edge of pallet wood. Hold down hard to hold items to make angled cuts. Or anything else you can think of. There is a 3” x 3” grid of hold down locations offering a lot of flexibility. I actually used it to make some of its parts.

Well – I spent the day yesterday finishing up the other version of the little cookie cutter animal basket that I showed you a couple of days ago. The first version (pictured above) was done using the new DecoArt Chalky Finish Paints, and I thought it would be a wonderful gift for a baby or even Easter. I loved the soft, pastel colors and I thought they looked really beautiful. The other version however is really different. It just goes to show how much a little paint can chan...

Hello to all lumberjocks! As the title says, I am pretty new to woodworking. I have a lot of questions about techniques, tools, and ideas for projects. It seems as one question gets answered another one peaks my interest. Right now I am interested in getting and learning how to use hand tools for joinery, planing, and the like. I don’t have a planer or really any good hand tools yet (I borrow my grandfather’s tools, but even his are limited in the hand tool department). My firs...
“Popping” curly maple is something I’ve wanted to try for some time, so I decided to test it on drawer fronts for a slant cabinet I built last year. My buddies at O-P Hardwood were out of curly maple so I ended up using curly maple veneer. The aniline dye I chose was W.D. Lockwood Early American Maple Yellow from Tools for Working Wood. There are great instructions for the preparation and use of this dye on the web site. The main two things I’d emphasize are: (1) use hot, distilled wat...
