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&...

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...

Looking at a Challenge Jointer Plane

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

The video is here https://youtu.be/iKMRu4B2D_k 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!

Handtool Basics #4: East Meets West - The Dozuki vs The Pistol Grip Back Saw

06-15-2017 03:21 PM by WoodWorkLIFE | 0 comments »

Whelp, looks like it time for another hand tool shootout, and this time it is time for a little east meets west action. Dozuki vs Pistol Grip Western Saw. I have always just kind of used both, I really find that they both have an important place in my workflow, but I took a second to figure out whats what between the two. This is really down to personal preference, and some of these opinions might just be facts about the ubiquitous Z saw and Veritas iterations of these tools. There are...

The Beginner's Hand Tool Kit (Some thoughts)

05-20-2017 10:02 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 4 comments »

View on YouTube The video covers mostly the tool side of things but I’d like to talk a bit about the concepts behind some of the first tools you buy. This is mostly just my opinion and my experience speaking (which isn’t much compared to some!). My main reason for the list in the video is as follows. You want to buy tools that help you develop confidence as well as skills. Buying an axe as your first woodworking tool is something that I recommend each budding woodworker do. ...
