Butterfly Spline inlay on a Kanna Dai

02-19-2018 03:24 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

This is a repair that is often done when a Kanna has a split or check in the wood. Rather than simply filling it with epoxy and/or superglue, it is way better to use a mechanical connection to repair the crack and ensure that it doesn’t expand or get worse in the following years. View on YouTube The key for these (literally) is to make the spline as strong as possible, and to ensure that it stays put, it does need to be glued in place. The maker of this dai is a gentleman named J...

Restoration of an Infill Plane

09-29-2017 02:28 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube I had gotten this plane off of ebay initially. The seller is actually selling her father’s antique collection, sadly he passed away at a young age from cancer and has left her his collection. I decided to restore the plane and give her a little video of it so she could see what was being done with the tool. I didn’t want this tool to just sit on a shelf so I decided to give it a proper repair and put it to work. The blade is a bit narrow for the body but that&...

Looking at a Challenge Jointer Plane

08-31-2017 05:44 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

The video is here This plane recently came into my possession and I found it to be petty unique and cool. When I first got it I didn’t realize how rare they are, and if you’re a tool collector you will probably know what I’m talking about. Just did a little video showing the design (neat looking but very poorly thought out), thought some of you folks who are into neat vintage tools would enjoy seeing it. Enjoy!

Hand plane DIY bloghand plane, scaper planes and toothing plane ramblings… My last blog on making handplanes was the one about the small planes , those little fellows bring plenty of smiles, both to me and guest in the shop.This time it was a need for a small scraper plane, the buy of a German toothing plane blade some time back and finally the reason I took off, was a old friend who wrote me, that she and her husband needed a small hand plane, that they can use when making arrows fo...

Venturing into Parts Unknown - Hand Tool/Plane Storage #2: Slow and steady progress

02-21-2017 08:09 PM by rhybeka | 6 comments »

Besides that this is my first foray into hand tools, I’d say it’s going fairly well. I decided to build a false front so the planes would rest at an angle. I changed the layout from the original a bit. I was leaning all of the planes in to take a picture, and the #4 decided to fall out. Luckily I was there to catch it, and there’s a couch directly beneath the till. This concerned me a bit though for obvious reasons. I’m planning on putting 3 rare earth magnets under th...

How I Do Hand Plane Rehabs #11: Final Fettling and Wrap-Up

12-15-2016 12:52 PM by HokieKen | 7 comments »

At long last, we have reached journey’s end :-) I apologize for taking so long to get this last entry done but life got in the way the past few weeks so I’ve been squeezing in working on this plane as I’m able. She’s complete and ready to go to work though! At the end of the last entry, we had flattened the sole and squared the sides up to it. I spent some time working up through some higher grades of abrasive. I’m not going to go into detail on that, just...
