I replaced the old screws that holds the iron and ship-breaker with some of brass. Flattened their heads and gave them a nice chamfered ring. A wile ago i got some pieces of Norwegian west coast grown apple from a friend. Having saved it to make a new handle and knob to a jackplane I restored this summer (another project soon to come) and decided to match up the filletster. It has an beautiful warm glow to it and I think it would ad both warmth and enjoyment to the touch and feel to th...
I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer...
I have been looking at getting a router plane for some time now. Ebay has great deals, but if you know me you know I like making my own tools. In this video I make my own router plane using a piece of oak pallet, a thumbscrew, wing nut, and an old cheap hex wrench. I opted out of installing handles on this (like most do that are this version) because i liked the feel. I could use my hole hand instead of holding onto some knobs. Hope you enjoy and view the video HERE!
This old framing hammer is in need of a new handle. I’ll make one out of the hickory board it’s lying on. I’ve cut out the blank for the new handle. Here I’ve laid out the exterior outline of the handle and the break points for each curve. I’ve cut out the shape of two sides of the handle on the bandsaw. I saved the cutouts and taped them back on so I have lines to cut out the other two sides. Here is the blank after sawing has ...
Somethin I’ve been fiddlin with in the spare time I don’t have…. lol. Plus, it’s really experimental. It will be a handle of sorts, I hope….....It’s a piece o Walnut, split in half, with a piece o Oak laminated in the middle. The experiment is about the clear epoxy. A shout-out to him, goes here…. Superdave. He did a small project a while back with it, and he gave me the idea for it. Thnx, I appreciate all your projects. Anyway, it’s a jewel tha...
Aimed at those new to saw sharpening, this instructional video is 2 1/4 hours long and covers the theory, the tools and the practice of sharpening western saws. You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios. I really hope you find it useful. As to the production quality, I’ve done the best I could. I had to record it outside, so there is a bi...
I have had a broad head axe sitting around in my shop for almost a year now. It is sad to see that thing just sitting there. The other night I decided to go ahead and starting shaping a piece of wood for the handle. In this video I take you on the “other side” of the wood shop, the smithing area. While giving a short tour I show the axe handle and what tools I’m using to get it to it’s shape. Enjoy!
Hi guys. So this baby here needed a new handle, the plastic ones being designed to not last. Even though this is a cheap 4€ pancake pan, and that the liner is chipping out, it’s okay, because I use it for melting rocket candy. So it’s getting fixed. First order or business, grab some nice colored palletwood from my old urban gloats (these will last me for years here). Draw the overall dimensions of the handle… ... then take out the (cheap) wood saw and cut i...
So, I recently built a new cedar gate & needed some handles. I didn’t want to go out & buy some, so decided to make my own. Inspired by “http://lumberjocks.com/projects/48854” CaptainAhab’s handles, I ended up with:Here’s how I built them:Starting with a lamination of 3 pieces of clear Cedar which I planed down to about 2 1/8” thick:Obviously, I made a little template for the top curves out of 1/4” plywood & cut the top curve with the ban...
Not much progress since last time, but still some. First of all, I made my wagon vise a handle. It’s been cut from raw oak stock that I took from my country house almost two years ago. I started with planing it to be a square, then to be octagonal, then I doubled number of edges yet more couple of times, and finished with some very light sanding. To make end knobs I used my poor man’s lathe: Time after time I use it to turn knobs, handles and such: And here is my ...
