Stanley Low Angle Block Planes

09-04-2010 03:43 AM by Geedubs | 9 comments »

I am looking for a block plane and the Stanley low angle planes appears to get a lot of good comments. I notice that there is more than one model out there, however. For example, one is the Stanley 12-139 Bailey No.60-1/2 Low Angle Block Plane and another is the Stanley 12-960 Contractor Grade Low Angle Plane. Can someone explain the differences (other than the obvious price differences?)? I am also interested in finding some good online videos demonstrating techniques for sharpening c...

stream of unconsciousness #1: motivation?

11-05-2010 05:02 AM by jHop | 1 comment »

So, I’m finding it hard to get motivated to get back to the shop. I have a project half assembled, and have just two more pieces to put together, then attach to the base, then finish. Is it just finishing I’m dreading? Or is it more? To get to my corner of the basement, where i’m trying to carve out a workspace, I have to climb over all sorts of stuff I’ve acquired to assist my woodworking. Or, I go the long way around, and have to climb over the piles and piles...

Tasmanian Woodworking... #11: A sawmill on a mountain..

12-12-2010 02:17 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

Down south in Tasmania, at a little place called Myrtle Creek, you will meet the Carins Brothers… Rory, Roderick and George… The family have been timber loggers for 5 generations and have recently moved into milling the timber they log on the 600 acre family property… And what a great location to go to work… the views down the valley are breathtaking… I took some video footage while I was there last month and have just now got around to editing it into s...

Got No Work?

Got No Work? Got No Work? You are not alone. But that doesn’t make us feel better. We need to survive. Remember when we prospered? Charles Neil has asked me to talk about this and maybe by doing so we can help a fellow woodworker? The thread that has been going on o the Blog started with Charles’ piece. “So you want to be a professional woodworker?” Some themes: “don’t quit your day job,” “I love this but…”, “what have I gotten myself into?” Everyone has a different emotional...

A day antique shopping and a great find

01-30-2011 01:58 AM by Dave | 8 comments »

My wife And I spent the day going to county square’s and browsing antique shops. Of course I found a whole lot of old tools that were to far gone. I did come across a boxwood four-fold rule for eight dollars, but one of the hinges was busted. I saw a marking device I had never seen before. It was pistol gripped with a rose wood handle. The slide was embossed with ruler like measurements. The blade looked like an old style straight razor with the handle missing. I dont know if it was for...
