Christmas Gifts #4: Completed 42 Cell Phone Stands

11-10-2017 03:35 AM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

I had ten stands to fit parts together today. I have 42 stands now ready for finish. I need to remember to burn letter initials or first names to these stands before applying any dye or finish. The poplar hardwood will get a walnut dye coat. I will test some of the pine with this dye. The rest will get Danish Oil coats.

Frame saw, maple scraps #1: Parts...

11-09-2017 11:52 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

This may be a short blog….decided to use some of the Maple 1×4s in the scrap pile.. There was a 1×4 about this long….I ripped it right down the center, to make a pair of handle blanks. I had a few old Butcher’s Meat saws just rusting away… This one is the larger one still sitting around. Two others supplied a few parts, and an 18” long saw blade. Drilled a couple holes, bandsaw to rough ly shape each handle…there was a longer 1×4...

Misc. Shop Stuff #64: Craftsman ‘CBB’ Planes

11-09-2017 01:06 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 24 comments »

One of my first ‘pristine’ tool finds was a Craftsman 5CBB jack plane. Still had the decal, and I liked the red and blue accents. Fast forward a half dozen years and I find another ‘CBB’ on ebay and do some research. They’re Millers Falls planes made for Craftsman. Not prime bench planes, but quite serviceable. It seems there were Stanley equivalents for bench sizes 3 through 7, no fractionals. I’m not one to covet a 6 (I find them quite worthless), so with today’s addition of a 7CBB I...

Christmas Gifts #3: Ten More Sapele Phone Stands Prepared for Finish

11-08-2017 11:02 PM by HappyHowie | 0 comments »

With these additional ten sapele cell phone stands I worked on today, I now have 32 stands prepared for its finish coat of Danish Oil. I know, some of you will count the stands in the photo. My first prototype is not in this photograph. To get to this stage this afternoon, I used the following hand tools: my low angle block plane, four bench chisels: 2”, 1”, 1/4” and 1/8”, my #4 smoothing bench plane, and my thin part bench hook for hand planing flat surfaces. ...

New Home Workshop #3: Time for an Update

11-08-2017 10:08 PM by builtinbkyn | 18 comments »

I’ve been so busy here I almost forgot I started this blog on the new shop. I’m really happy about my decision to use the “game room” as my new shop rather than the garage area I initially thought would be the place for it. There are so many more advantages to this than I thought there would be when I made the change. To begin with, there’s a bathroom off to the left of the space, whereas if the shop was in the garage area, I would have to head across the tw...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #3: Some Initial Sketches

11-08-2017 02:21 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

I did a bit of sketching to capture my thoughts – far easier to change lines than recut wood. Here’s a start. apologies for the curvature. Apparently my Cell has a 26 or 28 mm fl equivalent lens. I can also see that my talents as a sketch artist are sadly lacking so I think I’ll take a tip from the previous post and start learning SketchUp.
