Cedar Gate Handle #1: Cedar Gate handle - Start to Finish

03-17-2013 05:29 PM by twobyfour16 | 0 comments »

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...

Workbench #2: vise handle, bench dogs, and legs

02-05-2013 06:00 PM by yuridichesky | 8 comments »

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 ...

Picked up a rip saw blade at a local antique store for $5.00. 5 ppi, and in good shape. Only one broken tooth, but it’s right at the heel so it won’t be an issue Decided to make a D8-ish handle out of some pecan stock…liked how the light wood contrasted with the dark blade. Here it is after a test fit with the rough handle.

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #3: Re-glue

09-24-2012 02:52 AM by hhhopks | 1 comment »

The yellow just won’t work with rosewood. As JC suggested the epoxy should be used. I should know better. It must be old age. I have to learn my lesson more than once. The yellow glue didn’t held up to the test at all. After letting the tote to sit and dry for couple days. It snaps off with easy. The glue really never set. It was still soft. I had to start over. I ran hot water over glue spot and scrubbed with a tooth brush until all the visible glue are gone. This time I used epo...

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #1: Tote Repair (Where's the repair?)

09-02-2012 11:13 PM by hhhopks | 3 comments »

I spotted this Bed Rock 604. Another buyer had his hand on it. I had overheard that he said that he is a user not a collector. 15 minutes later, I found the same 604 sitting on the table along with other tools. Feeling sorry for it, I decided to give it a new home. It was a little pricy for an old tool ($50.00) but it was in decent shape. Looks like it does require some clean up. The tote in particular is in need of repair or replacement, but overall the plane looks like it is ...

Amazing to find that what’s old is new again! Japanned? Made in New Britain? Four pairs with slotted screws, wrapped in wax paper. One pair certainly destined for the sides of the wall-hung tool cabinet! :-) Where to go with the other three pair? Meh, no hurry to decide. Thanks for looking!
