Cocobolo and Leopardwood Table : Process pics. #5: Shaping the Legs

02-07-2016 04:03 AM by jeth | 1 comment »

hello all.. Now, having got the parts of the basic structure ready I wanted to get this glued up solid before fitting the parts that form the drawer pocket so I needed to get the legs shaped. Apart from the use of the Cocobolo panels the legs were the only other part I was fairly certain of once I knew this would be a table. I had seen some legs I liked and which seemed like they would fit here. I had a photo of the piece that sported those legs and imported it into sketchup. I used th...

Lego Table #12: The Mistake

12-11-2015 10:52 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Well, as I sit here icing my hand, I can sit back and say once more with authority that I need a table saw. Why, you ask?–other than the convenience factor? Because I could’ve used it to fix a costly mistake I discovered today… I started off making the open space in the front of the drawer to remove stock so the false front can fit and look nice. Pulled out the coping saw and my bird’s mouth jig and started cutting. The result (after some sanding) was a nice smooth curve. I used a paint c...

Show and Tell #6: My 'New' old Stanley 101 & 102 Block Planes

I recently acquired a Stanley 101 & 102 block plane from EBay, for $15 each. These are hammer adjusted planes, and I demonstrate the process on the 101.

05-25-2014 04:22 PM by thiswoodshop | 0 comments »

I bought a few used planes on eBay a few month ago and the block plane restore was the first one to tackle. All these plane bodys and irons was very rusted and pitted when I received them. I posted an article Hand Plane Restoration on this. Stuff I used for the restoration: Wire Brush Sand Paper Wire brush wheel for grinder WD-40 Black Spry Paint – Rust-oleum Sharpening Stone I blew all the loose peaches and rust dust of with some compressed air. Then I proceeded...

How to Cut Rabbets with Hand Tools

05-03-2014 12:36 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’m excited to share a quick video tutorial about how to cut rabbet joints by hand, with a few simple hand tools. This method focuses on cutting rabbets along the grain, which is especially useful for cutting moldings (first step in using hollows & rounds molding planes), picture frames, etc. Go to this original blog entry (here) for some links to the tools that I used in this tutorial (you can use variations):-Marking gauge (I...

My Stanley 60 ½ block plane makeover-PM-V11® blade upgrade

02-21-2014 09:17 PM by Brad | 8 comments »

This is one of the first woodworking tools I ever owned. According to Patrick Leach of Patrick’s Blood and Gore Stanley plane pages, on the one hand “The plane is a must-have for woodworkers,” while on the other hand, you should, “Definitely stay away from the maroon colored block planes; Stanley must have hired some Greenwich Village arteest to come up with this hideous color.” Personally, I LOVE it. Mostly because it’s one of the few woodworking tools that my Dad owned. I think he...

Rhykenology #8: The block planes of superheroes!

01-02-2014 11:35 PM by toolmike | 3 comments »

An interesting series of block planes in which the base, and often other components are made of steel – formed using a combination of stamping press and punch press. They were touted as “indestructible”. http://workingbyhand.wordpress.com/2014/01/02/the-block-planes-of-superheroes-part-1/

Rhykenology #7: Weird aluminum planes

12-21-2013 03:53 AM by toolmike | 1 comment »

Aluminum block planes are some of the strangest of planes around. They appeared for a brief period during the wars, and maybe again in the 1950s. Two of the strangest are the UTIL and The BOSTON – from unknown companies. http://workingbyhand.wordpress.com/2013/12/20/a-weird-aluminum-plane/

hand plane group therapy (my journey into it) #7: ok I give block planes are nice to have.

11-14-2013 06:15 PM by jacob34 | 9 comments »

So when I started down this hand plane road I will admit I did not have any idea what I was doing. I purchased hand planes on E Bay with the opinion that I could figure it out as I go, kinda a shot gun approach if you will. This resulted in some purchased that I fell in love with such as a 5 1/4 bench plane that honestly at this point is used more as a smooth plane than a fore plane. I also though bought a block plane well a few, okay, okay I bought like five but they were all different quali...
