Well it’s official I am hooked… restoring old tools is my new obsession. This time I found some old chisels, Clearcut brand, ever heard of it? Me either. I also couldn’t find much information on the brand online, I did find one post that mentioned they are from Montgomery Ward but I can’t be sure of that. No matter the steel feels good. Guess we will see if it holds an edge. I also shot a video of the restoration which can be viewed here.View on YouTube As you can ...

Got to get this thing done! Spent the whole day, fixing the door with a handplane. Added cleats to hold a floor Then cut and install a couple floor boards Didn’t have enough plywood. Planks are 1/2”. Screwed in place,but no glue. Got the corner blocks all installedI can then cut slotted holes. Just drill a hole in center of the block, then rock the drill back and forth towards the sides. This allows the top to expand and contract as it wants. A single screw in ...
And started to seperate at a couple joints! Ok, we have ways to deal with that. Clamps back on, to pull the parts back together. Then, to keep things in place, I have a little trick. Made sure that the side that was “up” was the inside of the panel. A few 5/8” long brads, three per joint, were driven in. I also, before the nails, flush the filler piece. Once all the nails were in and set, the sander took over. Everything nie and flat. Turned the panel over,...
Well, last time, I had a couple frames almost done. I went down to the shop a couple times today. Got the second large frame all joinered up. Then worked on the narrow end frame.. This is from laying out where the rails would go. First I had to trim them to length. Got out a mitresaw.. A little old school, but it works. Had a plain candle handy, and before most cuts, I’d rub the saw with the candle. Made sawing thos oak a breeze. Cut a few tenons with that same saw. h...
Well, at least enough to put ONE frame together. Had the five parts for the one side laid out. “Plan” was to mill a few tenons, then chop a few mortises to match. Got a few tenons done, before the insurance guys showed up. Spent maybe an hour talking things over with them, and the landlord. Anyway, about them tenons.. Needed a few tools. laid out 1” wide tenons. Simple to do, as the blade on the square is 1” wide. Marked all the way around the ends....

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers.
