Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #2: Plane body glue up

02-12-2011 09:44 PM by daltxguy | 10 comments »

Some more progress on my plane, which will be used to curve the inside of the staves to form a bucket. I am following stefang's master class on making a bucket using traditional methods I left off here last time Next to make was the crosspin. I chose to make a wooden pin. I don’t have any plug cutters so I did this on my rusty lathe ( forced to sit outside but under cover for space reasons). I sized the middle part to fit inside the plane less 1/16” so it wouldn’t ...

Woodworking Accessories Alternatives #6: Making a First Aid Kit

Making a First Aid Kit All of us understand the need of a first aid kit in the workshop, so there is no reason to emphasize its importance here.

First let me apologize if this is a repeat of someones earlier blog entry.I just wanted to let everyone else in on a secret for an easy and economical way to clean saw blades, router bits and etc.The product is called Al’s Totally Awesome, commonly referred to as Awesome. I get it at our local Dollar store for $1.00 and it is a 24oz. concentrated spray.I put my tooling in a container, spray on the concentrate, let set about a minute, clean with an old tooth brush and clean under the wa...

prototype Scaper plane

02-12-2011 08:40 PM by Dandog | 4 comments »

I was wondering how you finish your shop made planes?The blade is set at 70 degrees but you can go is high as 90.I wanted to see if it would work without a blade deflector.The woods used are purple hart for the sole.Pudauk on top of that(will see how straight it will stay ).Red oak for the sides an frog. The front Handle nob is a cut off from a Louisville slugger bat.My Friend went to the factory and brought a couple back for I’m guessing Ash.The handle is walnut and pine.‘ ...

Christmas projects #2: Finally Finished the Dresser

02-12-2011 07:54 PM by tt1106 | 0 comments »

Well, FINALLY, I finished the dresser. Why do other projects have to jump up when I’m trying to focus. :) What was wrong with my old drill press table? :)Anyways….The solid oak dresser is complete. As a complete milk-fed infant on finishing. I made tons of mistakes. Lack of patience being the most prevalent. Case done…. and finish done… and finally installed. Now on to the others, I didn’t finish. :)
