Ok, here goes. I won a Diamond Edge #6c on the bay. A very RUSTy plane, I might add. Shouldn’t be that big a deal to clean up. Box came in the mail…. Guess what I found inside this thing? Well, a front part came out first: Then the other part came out of the newspaper wrapper: HMMM, not quite what I thought i bought. Got to looking things over, while awaiting the refund. Frog, IF I can get it free of that base, should clean up: Chipbreaker, iron, and lev...
I just picked one of these up at a garage sale for $2 not knowing what it was. (and got a lot of other great buys too!)It says C.S. OSBORNE & co. NEWARK, N.J. From what I’ve read it is indeed a leather cutter, aka draw gauge (http://www.csosborne.com/no51.5.htm). Mine has black japaning on the handle and the blade says C.S. OSBORNE & CO HARRISON N.J. The blade must have been a replacement. On the opposite side of the measurements is it stamped MADE IN U.S.A., it’s stamp...
I had a little fun with an idea I had to take some pictures of a recently completed project. This is a 3 tier walnut stand that is used to display product in a local store. I picked up a few cases of the types of product that would be displayed on the stand. I would take a picture then add a jar then take another picture, I used Quicktime 7 to make a video of the image sequence. I wish I would have taken a couple shots of each product by its self on the shelf, I think I could have played w...
First of all, I really have no concept of what a “blog” really is. I have never made one and really know nothing about them. But, I posted the following under “my workshop” and it just seemed too much for what I feel that should be and since my shop is a project in progress and changing, just maybe that is what thishere “blog” is for and that it might better fit here, whatever “here” is. If I am wrong or out of line in doing this here, pleas...
Some celtic stuff, I had to take a BMP and trace it out with the thought of v-carving them. Coated wood with poly first, cut, then used gel stain, and wiped off, then final clear coat.
This is a router table/lift/fence combo that will terrify the the guys at Festool and Incra. As Stumpy completes the three episode router table series he unveils the completed setup- two router tables complete with micro-adjustable lifts, built in bit storage, dual dust collection, a fantastic sliding table and a fence that uses Incra’s innovative positioner technology without violating any patents! In the meantime you’ll see how to get a high quality router plate for about $10...
Its been a whirlwind of a Fall (and now Winter) and things seem to be changing quickly. I’ve gotten some shop time worked in here and there between my job and spending time with my wife and kids. My shop (aka- half of the garage) is quickly transforming as I continue to acquire tools. The next tool that I need to get into gear is my workbench. I last left you with the very early stages of the planning and assembly of the top. My top is essentially two slabs of butcher block table t...

WHAT I DID TODAYI managed to get more of the black filled in. Some of the fingers, the whiskers and a few other African Blackwood infills. I also put in the middle leg with Ash. The whole project looked so grubby from glue residue and smudges that I finally cleaned it up a little. It isn’t easy because many of the infill pieces are slightly proud of the background. I have been whittling these down with sharp chisels a little everyday. My intention is to handplane it when everything i...
