Had the chicken before the egg conversation with myself again yesterday, and in a fit of frustration of not having enough storage and needing a way to neatly store my planes, I bit the bullet and got started on my hand plane til. It was supposed to be my first foray into hand tool joinery but no. I decided in the essence of time and my need for storage it would just be a quick job with glue and kreg screws and I could redo it down the line when I could finish off a new til for the base of my...
With materials in hand, it’s time to start the actual work. First step is to create the mouth, bedding surface for the iron and front escapement area for the shavings. For infill bench planes, the wood can be cut completely apart and held on with the two metal sides during final assembly. Since this shooting plane only has one metal side, that strategy is not a good possibility. With many wooden plane builds, making this opening requires either chiseling out the area or doing a ...
Hi Guys, This week, I posted a seemingly innocent video giving a fellow you-tuber a “shout out” thinking to receive only appreciation for my efforts. But a day later, I was challenged into making a skull themed project. The links below will tell a more complete story. I hope you enjoy our video series. My challenge due date is this up and coming Sunday July 24, 2016. My shout out video:https://youtu.be/QxrMlhgGK20 Eloy’s challenge:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NPBmr...
Got it in my head to make the center wheels for the low boy.I needed some 3/4” oak but found some nice 1”, so started making the wheels and as I was getting half way though it hit me I was not making the center wheels for the trailer but was making some fat boy tires I had been thinking about making.So the tires may not fit the trailer but hey I like making tires so??? NOTE: There’s really nothing new here just what I did to make these wheels. Here’s some tire ma...
As I’m building these corner brackets, I realized that my commercial pocket hole jig won’t work, for this application, the bit diameter is to wide and interferes with the edge of the workpiece, so I need to make my own makeshift pocket hole jig out of some scrap wood, for a smaller dia. bit. https://youtu.be/Im5dV4Aln_0
I bought my house in 2012 and remodeled the whole interior and exterior. I setup a rough shop in my garage so I could do the things I needed in order to do my remodel. Now that I’m done with the work that I/my wife wanted done inside and out, I can finally start setting up my garage for woodworking. Its been awhile since I’ve built anything nice from scratch, mostly just some refinishing or making a few things for the home remodel. My garage is 23×20 but its not all usable...
Mrs Grumpy and I visited Norfolk Island last week. The beautiful scenery of Norfolk Island is something to explore and enjoy.The amazing history from having long gone evidence of Polynesian habitation then a British penal colony to finding a home for the “Mutiny of the Bounty” descendants. In 1856 the descendants of the mutineers were resettled by the British from Pitcairn Island (SE of Tahiti) some 3,400 nautical miles to Norfolk Island to the West (800 odd N.Miles off the East c...
During the 2015 Plane and Spokeshave Swap, I built a couple of what came to be called Transitional Infill Shooting Planes. A few people asked for a blog, but there weren’t enough pics to really document the build, so it wasn’t done. Well, after completing a few other projects, I decided to build one more and will try to do a detailed enough blog that someone else could follow along and build their own shooting plane. Lets get started. Gathering materials. First thin...
It has been insanely hot here in Phoenix, AZ. My garage is insulated very well but I’ve found that my little portable air unit is just not enough to keep up with the temperatures. I can’t wait until fall so I can finish my projects!
