Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #7: Lower Cabinet Construction and Installation

09-14-2014 07:23 PM by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

With the old cabinets gone, it was time to build the new ones. Our plan includes ladder frames to help make leveling the cabinets easier. Also, the cabinet sides are cut 31 inches long which allows 6 sides per sheet of plywood. We had a little help shopping for the vinyl toe kick. :-) Gotta love those grandkids. Then it was time to build some boxes and set them in place. Everything turned out as planned. This cabinet has four small drawers and a dual trash can...

Mike and Pat's Kitchen Remodel #6: Lower Cabinets Demo

09-14-2014 06:18 PM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

We were fortunate that the lower cabinets were easy to remove. A handful of screws later, and they were out. We saved the sink demo for last so it could be used until the very end. The old cabinets now have a new place to call home. Actually, they are in two new locations. A couple of the cabinets and counter top went to our nephew for his garage. The others went to our son in law’s mom’s house for her craft room. We were pleased that they could be used and kept out of the land...

Japanese Tools #4: More things happened this weekend.

09-14-2014 05:49 PM by CreekOne | 1 comment »

I have this Chouna, it was all black/brown and after about a day in citric acid and a lot of scrubbing every hour, I can now see the steel in some places, It also revealed a stamp and some faint etching that became stronger with time. I have also had the blades from my two Nagadai-ganna in citric acid to remove ages of rust.Anyone know anything about this stamp? The other one still in the acid…This one has stamps on the front and the back, both have stamps on the laminated chip br...

Japanese Tools #3: Saw fixing weekend

09-14-2014 05:33 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So, I have these saws. These are old, how old, I don’t know but they are handmade, most likely industrially handmade. They have this nice engraved markings on them, not like the modern stamps, more like hand stitched engravings. You can also see some marks where the steel was welded to make the saw blade. So, how to get some old, dirty, rusty, dull saws in working order? First step was a nice bath of citric acid, this removed most of the dirt and rust. I don’t have any...

Handplanes #4: Stanley & LV Custom Totes

09-14-2014 01:28 AM by OSU55 | 1 comment »

I don’t like Stanley or Veritas factory totes. I made modifications to the drawings provided by Lee Valley. The result is kind of in between the two designs. I start with stock about 1-1/4” thick and end up slightly less. The designs adjust the tote angle, making the Stanley more upright and giving the LV tote a little more angle. The front lower and rear upper radii are smaller and the positions adjusted to affect the hand angle and provide more vertical room for larger hands. My...

DIY Fishtail Chisel

09-14-2014 12:58 AM by GarageWoodworks | 5 comments »

I’ve been wanting to abandon my dovetail jig lately and I was reinvigorated by Frank’s seminar today to learn hand cut dovetails. Frank Klausz (at Woodworking in America 2014) used a fishtail chisel to clean out his sockets, although not a necessity, I wanted one. I went back to the market place at Woodworking in America and Lie-Nielsen sold them for $75 a pop (minimum). So, being a little more than I wanted to spend I decided to make one from an old Buck Bros chisel. I first ground the ch...

Minor Wood Score

09-13-2014 05:40 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

A friend of mine offered me an old dresser that they were throwing out, so I headed on down to fetch it. The dresser was old, but not handmade. The drawer fronts were curved and therefore no use to me. I saved the knobs though. Disassembling it I noticed a few oddities in its construction. The side panels, which are typically made of plywood are actually very thin boards. They are also flexible and somewhat delicate. The top might be one solid piece of wood, but with breadboard ends and a...
