Hand planes #4: Stanley SW no 5 Antique Mall resto

03-22-2017 03:08 PM by Mike54Ohio | 1 comment »

Finally got around to attacking the restoration on the SW no 5 I picked up at the antique mall last month. The biggest issue was that the tote was broken at the horn and I had never attempted a repair on that type of damage before. I only had to give $11 for the plane when I scored it – the blade and cap iron etc were pretty rusty. Before pics: I threw all the small stuff into evaporust for clean-up and decided to try something different on the plane sole for rust rem...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1828: I'm Still Here!

03-22-2017 12:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It seems like it has been forever since I posted a blog. As a person who posted a new blog nearly every day for over five years, it seems that I have been quite lax lately in keeping up. I apologize about that.It isn't that I am not busy. Quite the opposite is true. It seems that the floodgates have been opened and all of a sudden things are really kind of wild. That in itself is wonderful, but it is also kind of scary. While I am thrilled and excited about this recent 'growth spurt&#...

The first Boulle style box Engraved Boulle marquetry box lid STARTING POINT I am always looking for something small and complicated to make.

Hand plane restoration

03-14-2017 09:32 PM by Blake Haskins | 0 comments »

In this video I restore a Belknap bluegrass block plane. I believe that it belonged to my great, great grandfather (my grandfather’s grandfather. I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

2017 PATINA Spring Tool Sale and Auction

03-14-2017 06:21 PM by EricTwice | 0 comments »

If you get a chance go. A friend finally convinced me this year. I dropped my Stanley 9 1/2 and broke it. I bought it in 95. it is English made. I was hoping to find another like it and have spare parts. No such luck. I settled for a 1950s era U.S. made one, new in box for which I paid 20$. I’m happy. I also picked up a 6” Millers Falls sliding square and a 5” Starret for very reasonable. Yes there are some pricey offerings, but you can also find some very reasonable p...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1827: All That Glitters

03-10-2017 01:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It has been a wild and incredibly busy week. I have spent most of my days up in my shop, working on cutting my wood orders. It is difficult to call it 'work' because I do enjoy doing what I do so much. With the release of Lynne Andrew's Noah's Ark series last week, there has been a huge rush to purchase the wood pieces from me. Along with this have been our regular orders and all the other business tasks. I never in my wildest dreams could have imagined being in such a wonderf...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1826: The Business of Running a Business

03-06-2017 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I think that most who hear that I design for my living and have my own business have visions of me spending my days in the dreamy wonderland of creating. . . lolling away the hours overlooking the rolling meadow or gazing out to the ocean, drawing or painting my heart out to the sound of the lapping water on the beach. It is truly a wonderful thought, isn't it?While I have been able to experience days such as I described, they are few and far in between. As our little business grows, the ...

Hello Guys, Sorry, but due to potential patent infringement and damage to the Microjig’s sales, I removed all of the PDF plan files (as advised by my fellow lumberjockers). Here are two short video on how I made my clone: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hFoFq-69uM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Ow9GhgB_o Finally, another simplified Gripper I made from plexiglass: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=De51MrQxHso Happy Woodworking!
