Can You Identify This Old Plane?

01-03-2011 02:28 AM by DennisC | 5 comments »

I purchased this old plane at a yard sale several years ago. It was covered with rust and most of the Japanning was gone. There was one on E-bay recently that looked very similar, but had “Siegley” cast into the tail end. This one has no identifying marks other than “No. 10” on the cap iron. It’s 21.5” long and 2.25” wide. The frog is not adjustable and the cap iron acts as a chip breaker. I had some time off over the holidays and decided to clean it ...

Cherry platform bed #4: Oil applied, coming down the home stretch

01-03-2011 02:16 AM by TheBarrister | 0 comments »

Three nice coats of Watco Danish oil applied to each piece, being extra careful not to get any on the parts to be glued. Not quite careful enough, because I did get a little oil on one tenon and slightly into two mortises. Hopefully, I ‘ll be able to clean it up well enough with some denatured alcohol and minimal sanding. Here are the two footboard posts, along with two cross pieces for the headboard. I apply the oil with #0000 steel wool, rubbing it in well, then wipe up th...

Lie-Nielsen Shoulder/Rabbet Plane Kit #3: Day Three

01-03-2011 02:03 AM by cut3times | 1 comment »

Well the mouth is pretty close. I think I will try it first and then make it wider if I need to later. I added three brass pins to keep the infills secure.I switched the spindle to the belt on my sander.Then I started the flattening of the sides. I am happy the pins are blending in pretty well.As you can see in this photo the plane is still wider than the blade. I think I need to change belts. The one on the sander now is getting old.After I get the sides down some more I will work on the ros...

Project 365 #1: worth 365,000 words?

01-03-2011 01:19 AM by scottb | 1 comment »

New year, new projects and new ways to share. Twitter updates from the computer and phone have already (slightly) increased the activity over at my blog. Now that Christmas is unwrapped, the ghosts of Christmas presents present may reveal themselves without being spoilers. So I finally have fodder, if not the time, for some real posts. But while you’re waiting for projects to be photographed and chronicled into the blogosphere, There is another bit of daily freshness in store. Head o...

Week of shop improvements

01-03-2011 12:24 AM by Eric_S | 15 comments »

What would you do if you had a week off of work, a cluttered workshop that is preventing any work, and not enough storage? Well, I didn’t use the full week but I had about 4 full days of shop time :) so I started on a big project to reorganize my garage. When I set up my shop initially 1.5 years ago, I didn’t really know what kind of work I would want to be doing, nor did I know how I would be moving around it. After using it for over a year I have found areas that could use bi...

Embracing woodworking

01-02-2011 10:30 PM by FreddyS | 9 comments »

I guess it all started back in the day when my now late father taught me, by letting me do things by myself at a young age, to always dig deep to find a solution for any task at hand no matter how hard it seemed, this got stuck really well on me I think, and sometimes to the point of obsession I’m afraid hehee. To be honest, it has been a source of some troubles, but mostly it is a source of great joy as it has lead me to a path for searching new things to learn and new things to cre...

A Little Me Time

01-02-2011 05:17 PM by WhiskeyWaters | 3 comments »

Pictures can be found at Just missed my flight to Boston, but on the upside, I get a little me time. I’ve been working pretty steady this weekend. I re-organized the workspace. And then – a new storage bench and some rearranging: That new bench is a salvaged office door, ripped in half and cut to needed lengths. It weighs some 200+ lbs. I have three more planks to use, so I’m thinking a new version of my bench that you see, but this one will have the mass n...
