Recently i picked up three hand planes for 40 bucks at a local swap meet , one being the stanley defiance jack plane i showed earlier , also in the bunch were a stanley 102 and a rapier 400 smooth plane. My Uncle noticed my interest in wood and well… i ended up bringing home one of my grandpas (deceased since 2004) tool boxes full of tools that hadnt been used since they were put down by him. In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...
I had a very busy day yesterday. I was surprised and thrilled at the response to the posting of my new patterns and surfaces in my ETSY shop. I also had several orders for wood pieces from other sources – including people that bought my wood kits from Artist's club previously and are looking for more.

Turns out the next step is making the back rail, clamping it to the glued up sides, and then clamping in a spacer in order to cut out the dovetails for the top, front rail. The back rail was relatively straightforward. I joint with a plane. It is a great feeling when you get those long shavings at the end of the process. I also like the impossibly thin shavings you get when using the smoother on the face. Clamped together and ready for the next step.
My statement from the last blog post is still true. The table is saved. I swear the learning curve on this project is straight up. I have had such trouble putting the final finish on the table top, plus the weather, (I’m working outside under a canopy), plus other chores… I still expect to get the table delivered this weekend, although rain is predicted for Saturday! I kept getting nothing but brush strokes trying to put the final finish on. I sanded, but when I got the bru...

“A Rustic Way of Seeing” Moving Forward:....and so it is with my body in check, that i have opened the windows of my heavenly mind, where as i do so now, my imagination takes to the freedom of unsolicited thought and the freeways of unwavering time travel…. —-and what is this thing i call ‘unwavering time travel’, if not the epic journey of one who is heaven sent or hell bent, on reaching the artistic expression of creating ‘one of a kind’, as not aft...
