A revised Offering to get this stuff gone, okay? Pictured are parts for a Stanley #50: The main body; one cutter; the body ‘bolt’ that usually has a wing nut attached; and a one-wingnut fence. I’d like $12 PLUS SHIPPING for everything -one money for all- and it’s yours. PM if interested, thanks.
Hello. I have a couple of extra cutters for the Stanley #46 skew plough, a 1/4” and a 5/8”. I’d like $18 “Shipped” for these two cutters, it’s a package deal. PM if interested, thanks.
Price lowered. Won’t mess with it for less than $12 shipped, and it’s a fair price at that. This oft-missing part came with a recent eBay purchase and I don’t need it. PM if interested, thanks.
I had a request from No 2 Son to replicate the Box I made for his first daughter CaitlinSeems younger sister Emily spotted it and requested the same, I didn’t keep any records on how I did it and asked if I could get it back to copy it, this proved to be impossible due to the aproaching Birthday. So I set to work, working off a few pictures I took before. I was making great progress until I put the lid on. There seemed to be a problen with the grain. Wondering if ...
Hello all, just in case anyone is following along I’ll continue here with how I added the gunstock joints to the legs as an afterthought.I had already prepped the leg blanks and cut mortises when I decided (influenced in large part by a nice arts and crafts hall table in a magazine article) that the table would benefit from”flowing” the legs into the apron frames with gunstock joints. This will probably be easier to visualise if I show you the end result, so this is what ...
Triple slat designs. I started using the scrap pieces excess from Narra flooring parquet. This was the result of squaring both sides of the cut using thicknesser jig I made. It was easily done even by 4 or 5 depending on the texture and grain orientation of the narra strips. The use of popsicle sticks was really proportional with the Narra. Design Concepts I have started the three designs and manage to construct two using same concept with only variation on the black spaces by using 1...
For those of you who have never used a leg vise, they are amazingly useful animals to have in the shop. To those of you who have one, “way to go” ;)To those of you who have one, and it happens to have benchcrafted hardware, let me commiserate with you just a bit. They are not really a difficult thing to put in, though I am a bit mechanically disinclined. They seem to be more on the tedious end of things and very persnickety. Kind of like putting a leash on a bumble-bee; be accurat...
It’s time to fair the inside of the hull. Due to the shape it is never an easy job. I have some different things to try. First is an ulu. This was given to me by a good friend. He made it using an old tablesaw blade. Actually, he made it for us to use in the kitchen. I guess my wife and I are too old to change. We just couldn’t get used to this over a regular knife. When I was making the last canoe I needed something to fair the inside curve and thought of this ulu. It matc...
Have you ever had a project the needs little feet to get it off the table, but you only have wine corks? This happened to me recently, so I cut the corks into about 1/2 inch slices with my mini miter box and glued one in each corner of the project. To be sure they were level I rubbed the installed feet on a sheet of course sandpaper fixed to my flat work bench. Instant cork feet.
Since I started this blog almost exactly 5 years ago, I’ve really only half-heartedly added tools to my collection, and generally just tinkered around with projects. As you can see, I’ve not posted a single “Project” here at lumberjocks. Until recently I kept telling myself that I couldn’t tackle anything substantial because I didn’t have the right tool(s). I’d say to myself, “If I only had a [bandsaw, planer, spindle sander, dovetail jig, et...
