A friend asked me to make a humidor for him after seeing some of my other projects. Having never made one, of course I said yes.Started off with a simple rabbit joint for the box frame. Added some maple trim on the corners and brought it down flush with my no.5 1/2 Added a walnut ply in a rabbit to the top and bottom Next up the top and bottom caps at 3/8” thick This walnut crotch is from a 4/4 chunk that I book matched to give it a subtle nod to a tobacc...
It’s starting to look like something but I don’t know what. I really need to be making the seats and gauges but just have to do some body work to see what it’s going to look like.Maybe tomorrow I’ll get back to the program, ya right!Don’t look like much but played around with the angles for the sides.I don’t know why they don’t just tell you their 15 degrees[I don’t know how to make that circle thingy that says degrees] for the windshield and...
I picked up a few more planes since I got the #5 for my birthday. A friend gave me the the wooden plane on top. I believe it is long enough to be considered a jointer. It is stamped New York Tool on the toe end. He also gave me another # 5. This one is the type 19, second from the right. Also pictured are three #4’s. From left to right they are: 1. A Miller’s Falls parts plane. The side of the plane was broken, but the guy at the antique store threw it in with the oth...
June has been a good month! For my birthday, my Father gave me the choice of one of two #5 planes he had purchased at an antique store recently. I didn’t know anything about planes and made my selection based on my wife choosing a number between 1 and 10. :-) I was excited to get my first plane and started researching immediately. What I got was a Stanley type 20 #5 in need of cleaning and tuning. Yes. The “dreaded” type 20. Despite finding that it had a less than...
Sometimes my shop is lucky enough to inherit tools from other shops when they either close up or upgrade their machines. When this happens, if it’s a machine we can use, they are often in rough shape and in need of cleaning and maintenance. This Rockwell Delta jointer for instance needed a good cleaning on the deck, a new power cord, and new blades. In this post I’ll show you how an old time carpenter tought me to clean the metal deck of a shop machine. Start by soaking the ...

Well the wheels are ready now for the frame work for the Hummer.Most of this work you’ve seen in my other how2’s so just pictures.This is going to be one big vehicle but I always say that don’t I, but it’s TRUE!!! LOL Going to be doing the back end a little differently, I hope it works out. Cutting out for the axles. The wheels was page 9 and this is all from the first page so only 7 more to go.
View on YouTube I have a very nice woodworking workbench. My bench is adjustable height, has a built in mobile base, bench dogs, a twin screw vise on one end and a quick acting face vise on the other end. It is a fantastic bench for woodworking, which is most of what I do in my shop. I do like metal working, but I focus on woodworking. Occasionally, I need to use a metal vise and I discovered a great, and very easy, solution. I have two metal vises. I keep the better one in the gara...
I spent several hours today measuring and inputting to SU to come up with a workable set of plans for this “easy to build” model chevalet and it is at the point that I would like some feedback, let’s call it proof-reading. It is as yet un-dimensioned, although it can be measured with the tape measure tool and I will be adding more detail views as the build blog progresses. At this point I would just appreciate some scrutiny from those of you more capable than I am with SU...
