My first homemade "prototype" non-functional handplane (i.e. my new paperweight)

165 days ago by siavosh | 6 comments »

The desire to make my first hand plane came out of my desire to fix my shooting board. It’s an essential item in my tiny apartment workshop, but shortly after making it, I realized it wasn’t accurate enough. The back beam of the shooting board was not a perfect 90 degrees, but it was off enough to make an impact especially for stock wider than a couple inches. To make tapered shavings of the beam to compensate for my flawed build, I needed some type of shoulder plane. I wasn...

Small Pine table, with a shelf

168 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Found a few boards to use. Got the one 1×6x60” cut down into three boards. Glued up into a panel, and then flattened with a couple handplanes. I have a large, plastic tub sitting under the bench, to catch a few shavings Between the top, and a pine shelf, it got full kind of fast. Sawed a couple found 2×4s into some leg stock. Plan (Plan, I have a plan??) was for a notch about halfway up the legs, to house a shelf. Grabbed a small saw, and knocked off a corne...

Shop Stool

174 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 9 comments »

For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...

THE BLANKET CHEST PERSUASION

185 days ago by TDog | 1 comment »

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

Texas Star Inlay #2: Completing the Inlay

185 days ago by cakman | 3 comments »

Here is some more progress of the inlay. I started off by lightly tacking the star in the position I wanted and tracing the outline with a sharp knife. Light strokes at first and then gradually deeper. And then using a chisel to remove a little v notch. This allows me to cut slightly deeper with the knife and establishes the outside shoulder of the inlay mortise. It also gives me a visual barrier to look out for on the next step. I chucked up a small straight cutting bit in m...

Texas Star Inlay #1: Tutorial: How to make a Texas Star and Inlay

185 days ago by cakman | 1 comment »

My goal in posting this was to give everyone an idea of how I went about making a Texas Star to use in inlay work. There is probably a better way to do this, but this way is safe and effective and requires few tools. I have seen it done this way once and wanted to attempt it myself. I did not snap pics of the build process but I was able to come up with some drawings in sketchup to illustrate each step. Step 1: Layout The first thing I considered is what wood to use. It is ideal to pick...
