Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn’t have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new toy! Second, I’m going to throw out the disclaimer that this was by no means a 100% exhaustive test. We did not do things like study edge retention, sharpening, and haven’t done any prolonged use/testing of the V...

Becoming a Galoot #8: Rot and Rattlers

06-15-2014 07:55 PM by scruboak51 | 4 comments »

My efforts to get a nice slab cut from this beast was met with failure, but it was not without a good effort. I took every opportunity to sneak out in the garage this week and work on the big cut to rip this redwood root down; even if for only 5 minutes. Every little bit of effort adds up and makes the task seem less monotonous. I had made good progress and loosing our DSL connection on Thursday gave me an unexpected excuse to duck out of work and get some garage time in. By Friday afte...

Becoming a Galoot #7: Prepping for the Big Cut

06-08-2014 10:26 PM by scruboak51 | 2 comments »

I’ve been on a bit of a project tear as of late. I finally got fed up with piling stuff in one corner of the garage only to move it to the other, then back again. After knocking together a couple of small coffee/lamp tables, I wanted to tackle last of the big stuff. that big stuff would be 1/3rd of a large redwood root I had purchased. Part 1 became a still in-process bench and, part 2 was sold in a semi-rough state (offsetting the entire purchase and then some). I could have t...

Drift Redwood Bench Build #5: The longest cut

04-05-2014 02:40 AM by scruboak51 | 2 comments »

I’ve had a bit of a hiatus from posting updates on my bench build, but it’s not for lack of effort. After a lot of thinking I decided to build a metal base for the bench. This will keep with the theme that my work and, by default, our house is developing. It also allows me to develop my metalworking skills. I found a phenomenal local metal supplier. They have an entire section of the store devoted to pre-cut shorts. Just about their entire inventory is represented in one an...

New appreciation for hybrid woodworking

03-29-2014 08:04 PM by Steve Diogo | 8 comments »

Just finished ripping a 5-foot 2×4 for an artist’s easel, and Holy Crap was that a workout. I’m hella proud of the straight cut, but I think I have a new appreciation for the hybrid approach. It’s enough to make a guy want to break out the credit card for a table saw, but I like my marriage too much. Got the one piece ripped and dressed, but I think that’s enough for today. The second one will have to wait. I need a nap.
