I was asked to take these shutters and make some bookshelves. I will be utilizing wood that is approx. 60 yrs old and these shutters, which, we don’t know how old, but could be much more. I am inserting the pictures of the shutters, as this project may take a little while
A few weeks I was looking around my local junk store where I got my #4 and found two small block planes sitting on the shelf. One was a #60 1/2 with no blade and another with a broken cap and adjusting screw nut and no readily apparent model #. I got them home, disassembled them and dropped all the pieces straight into the good old Evap-O-Rust. I left them to soak overnight and all the next day while I was at work. They both cleaned up nicely, so I WD40ed them and set them on the shelf abo...
In this episode I build a small picture frame.

The other day I was cutting up some pen blanks on the bandsaw and the blade broke. It was a 3/4” Timberwolf blade that I had welded up and it had been running noisy and had a wave movement toward the front as it went around. I had figured that it has a crack in the blade at the weld and was going to fail, but I had kept using it. So it broke. I took the covers off and removed the blade. It broke about 1/4” away from the weld. So I coiled it up figuring I’ll clean it up an...
It is all back and forth, to and fro, over and over again, until my fingers are sore and angry. Actually my fingers are not only angry, they are bitter and told me in no uncertain terms, “Listen bub, we know you are excited about your new little sharpening station, but either we get a break, or we will wrap ourselves around your neck.” I am not brave, so I relented and decided to take a break from sharpening. I checked and my fingers agreed that they would be more than willing to eithe...
My son and I went to the local flea market looking for a rusty block plane to try out the evapo rust. I was hoping to find a 102 or 103 for a buck or two. I wanted to try it before starting on the Stanley 112. It is too nice of a plane for it to be used for the trial. I was not able to find any good candiates for testing the evapo-rust. Anyway, I ended up walking out having only spent $2 on an old back saw. Cest ‘la vie. We stopped at a local antique store on the way ...
Just a quick update. I ordered and recieved a Hock replacement blade for the plane from Craftsman Studio. While I was at it, I had a moment of weakness and also ordered a Hock burnishing rod. I really like Craftsman Studio, good prices and quick shipping. The burnishing rod comes without a handle so I enlisted one of my friends to turn a quick brass handle. The Hock blade is very high quality and I like the finish. Photos are below. I also have a some evapo-rust on order. Once t...
Now that I have my web site in order, I have had time to resume working on videos. Here is the link and the writeup:Band Saw Blade DriftAll too often band saw blade drift is a phenomenon that vexes woodworkers who are new to resawing on the band saw, more...
I just can’t review stuff. I have NO point of reference. Pretty much everything I have is my first [insert tool type here]. It wouldn’t be fair. BUT … after: - MUCH messing with my Grizzly G0555X 14” bandsaw, - figuring out that the entire blade tensioning mechanism was faulty (new parts on the way) - finding out all I could about tuning a bandsaw, and thinking I had it set up pretty darned well I finally stopped by the woodworking store and picked up...
