Videos #8: FastCap Hand Planes

07-19-2012 02:02 PM by tyskkvinna | 2 comments »

A radius plane and a standard plane.. Both are just intended for small cleanup, finishing, that sort of thing. I actually use them on a regular basis—I love the radius plane. When I do miniature work they are also fantastic. As I mention in the video, they are a great learning tool if you want to dip your feet into some hand tools but don’t want to make the commitment to something large (in cost or size). You don’t have to try and build an entire project with it, it becom...

Making Wooden Flowers #3: Cutting the Petals

03-24-2014 01:02 AM by Ronbrush | 2 comments »

Step Three – Cut out the Flower Petals If you wish to make a rose like the ones in my spring bouquet, you will need 28 flower petals for each rose. You can eliminate one or two rows but the result is less impressive in my opinion. The petals are arranged in layers or tiers when the flower is assembled. It helps to cut out a template from stiff paper or card stock. Use a soft pencil to trace the shape onto the basswood shavings. A sharp pair of scissors will do the job of c...

Quick tip to find an unknown angle

09-02-2012 07:04 PM by nobuckle | 1 comment »

I’m restoring an old jack plane and I need to make a new tote for it. The recess for the tote has angle at one end, this helps to lock the tote in place. The problem is that I don’t know what that angle is. Well, I came up with a method of finding that angle. Perhaps this tip will work for you as well. Thanks for watching.

Making a Jack Plane Tote

09-03-2012 07:55 PM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

Okay, this is yet another update on the James Kellogg Jack Plane restoration. This time I’m making the tote. One of my concerns is that the tote may break if any side pressure is applied. I’m kicking around the idea of adding a drilling a hole through the handle and reinforcing it with a dowel. What do you think? Ayway, here is what I have so far; The pattern The rough shape Fitted to the plane Just a closer look Thanks for looking.

My First Workbench #20: Day 20: Leveling the top is a full body workout.

09-04-2012 11:53 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the dramatic (or not so dramatic) before and after pictures, please click here. A busy weekend with the kiddos and my wife happily trumped all other activities (except cutting the grass) for the weekend. But today is Labor Day so…what better way to celebrate than by doing some labor!I had just enough time to squeeze in some work on the still unfinished bench today. It has been sitting, base assembled and dry, with the top merely resting in place now for 3 days. Time to get bac...

Restoring History-Auburn Tool Co Try Plane #3: Lessons Learned

06-24-2011 04:32 AM by RGtools | 3 comments »

So I made a mistake. Not a big one but definitely avoidable. When I set my grinder up, I used a nice thick blade to figure out where may angle should be. Unfortunately I forgot to factor in the tapered blade on the old plane makes a RADICAL 10 degree difference to my grinding angle so I realized that I had a 20 bevel angle about early enough correct it. I tapped the stand forward so I ended up with a second bevel of 30 degrees. Believe it or not the secondary bevel is big enough to reference ...

My First Workbench #16: Day 16: Winding sticks and cutting rail tenons.

08-27-2012 11:16 PM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

For the pictures, please click here. I had some time this morning with kids out playing with chalk in the driveway to make some winding sticks for when I level the top (hopefully this week!). I had some 1×2 dimensional poplar left over from a project that was never used (8 feet of it sitting in the garage taunting me to make something out it). So I found the two ends were the straightest and cut 2’ off each end.Then I used a chisel to bevel the edges slightly. I tried to fi...
