Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

03-22-2013 11:37 PM by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...

How To make Easy Drawers

12-30-2011 05:52 PM by Sailor | 4 comments »

I just finished making some drawers for two vanities that I am building and I figured I would make a video of the easy method I use to make them. I noticed that there wasn’t a video on Youtube of how to make “easy” drawers with simple joinery so I thought I’d throw mine on there. I don’t use the best joinery I know, but it’s simple and can be done by pretty much anyone with limited tools. I have several drawers in my shop that were built this way and...

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #5: dust hood mount solution

03-06-2010 12:06 AM by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

This one’s been in the works for awhile, and by that I mean I’ve pondered it in my head for a few minutes here and there over the last several months. I’ve had the general idea most of that time, but this week I pondered even harder than ever and imagined all of the pieces. I just wanted something simple that could hold one of the two dust hoods I’ve ended up with from Rockler, but I wanted to be able to tilt it forward over the piece, or backward out of the way, an...

Plans and Drawings #1: Combination Loft

04-05-2008 03:40 PM by Chris Davis | 7 comments »

I had a request or two on how I made the Combination Loft. I was going to scan my notes and email them to the LJ but thought why not share with everyone. First remember these were intended for me so they may not make since to anyone else. I am posting it here so there can be dialogue back and forth. I’ve built this version two times. One time in white and the other time in the pine version. This is some dimensions to show the side panels Here are some more overall dimensions. ...

Cigar Box Guitar #1: Good Start

09-30-2012 09:59 PM by PittsburghTim | 1 comment »

I recently purchased a book called the Handmade Music Factory by Mike Orr. I had seen another book on the topic reviewed here several weeks ago and that stirred my interest. I haven’t played an instrument since I was forced to take several years of piano lessons by my mom some 35 years ago, but I just finished to large coffee table projects and wanted something new to start. I read through the book and decided to start with a three-string, fretless guitar, I stopped at the local c...

corian countertop #1: How to build a corian countertop with an apron

03-20-2009 02:28 PM by Frankie Talarico Jr. | 1 comment »

There are a few corrections on the first page and can be seen here. This information is from an actual build of a corian countertop. This was a job for united technologies 6 restrooms with three undermount sinks each. Photos were taken along the way. I will be as clear as possible on all the steps needed to accomplish this. We are lucky enough to have a CNC for the cutouts. Laying them out on cad is extremely cost effective. If you dont have on you can use a mock-up piece you cut from p...
