Help in inentifying my newest plane

04-13-2017 03:04 PM by EarlIII | 5 comments »

I recently purchased a plane on ebay and to be very honest I haven’t a clue as to the maker. I sam hoping to get some help from someone who knows more about hand planes than I do. On the plane body onj the mouth behind the iron the number 7 is stamped. Then behind the frog ant in front of the handle in this order starting at the frog is the letter U in a circle then made in the USA and then behind that is the number 8 just in front of the handle. I’m going to try and post some pi...

Honey locust bench. #3: First epoxy glaze coat.

04-03-2017 06:46 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So Saturday afternoon once I had gotten home from work I decided to go ahead and put my first glaze coat on my bench top/seat. I didn’t measure the approximate square footage of my piece and just guessed at how much epoxy to mix up. I did 6oz of Famowood Glaze coat, and poured it along my surface. Using a bondo spatula that I modified to have a corrugated edge, I was able to spread the epoxy out without pushing too much around at once. The teeth of the spatula I made really ...

Shop stool part 2

03-24-2017 02:51 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 4 comments »

Here the second and last part of the “stool in concert”. It’s just another shop stool, but was made with a lot of love. If you have not yet seen the first part, see it first to get in the right mood! (You can see and hear the complete concert on my videos). In this second part I dedicated to elaborate the seat, the final assembly and the finish. Here the wedges of the seat ! Thinking of finishes, and that this stool will be used in the workshop, I decided on wat...

Hidden figers joints? #4: Getting about done

03-21-2017 11:39 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Spent most of the day working on this box. When I removed the clamps, I found one corner that hadn’t glued up… So, got out the glue, and a couple big clamps. Trickle the glue into the open joint, and crank the thing tight.. I also took a bit of time to clean the other end of the box up.. Block plane to level things a bit. Since this is the bottom of the box, it would be nice if it would sit flat.. Set up the Stanley 45… With a bead cutter….I think it...

Honey locust bench. #2: Slow progress is still progress nonetheless.

03-15-2017 07:52 PM by mchapman87 | 3 comments »

Quick update from my honey locust bench build. I have been trying to juggle this in with a myriad of other projects that seem to pop up daily. My daughters birthday is tomorrow and I had the pleasure ( heavy sarcasm) of putting together this monstrosity of a swing set. I pray that one day my daughter will have kids and have to suffer the same fate as I haha. Two whole weekends of battling this behemoth and it’s finally complete. Now I can focus on some of my stuff, hopefully. I ...

Musical Instruments #8: Appalachian Mountain Dulcimer #1

03-15-2017 02:40 PM by johnstoneb | 9 comments »

This mountain dulcimer build is entirely the fault of LJ’er Dave Rutan. I followed his blog on building a mountain dulcimer while I was building a marimba. When I finished the marimba he had convinced me that I could build a dulcimer. Thank You Dave, I think. I started searching “building mountain dulcimer” after a week or two of reading. There are a lot of people building dulcimers as it is a folk instrument there really is no right or wrong way to build a dulcimer. I...
