Childs Play #3: Toy Handplane Build #3.... Frogs and Totes Oh My!

12-02-2014 03:21 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

I have taken some long over due time off of work this week and am taking advantage of it as much as I can. Today I got busy on the frog, receiving plate and lever cap. Last week I had already finished adding the knob/tote screw posts and cut out and drilled the tote for this guy. Dug out a chunk of aluminum and started cutting… I REALLY need to consider a metal band saw lol… And with that done I had the “machined” base for the frog. Next w...

Easily Flatten Your Sole

11-30-2014 10:15 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

When dealing with handplanes there are two main things you have to have. The first is a really sharp iron. This helps make some great shavings and you can tell a difference between a dull iron and a sharp one. The second important thing to have with handplanes is a flat bottom. If the bottom isn’t flat you won’t end up with nice and flat lumber, or you will be fighting the pushing action while planing. In this video i show how easy it is to get a flat sole. The whole process takes...

Childs Play #2: Toy Handplane Build #2... Drill Press Turning and Stuff..

11-23-2014 11:15 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

I had hoped to be further along on this by now but progress is still progress I suppose. I am taking some vacation time next week so hopefully I can get this mostly done by the end of the first week of DEC leaving just a few simple tools left to complete the set for Christmas. Anyhoo.. we left off with the rough joints brazed into the aluminum. After sanding for a few hours I finally broke down and picked up a belt sander for the shop. I had been tossing around needing one for about a y...

How to Square, Flatten, & Dimension Rough Boards with Hand Tools {10 Steps}

09-27-2014 11:45 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In the above video, and in the below 10 steps, I teach one of the most basic and essential skills in traditional woodworking: how to square, flatten, & dimension your own rough lumber into finished boards. To build quality traditional furniture, you need to start with perfectly flat and square lumber. Some people achieve this with power jointers, planers, and table saws. While the electrical power route is more economical for a commercial woodworking workshop, I prefer the safet...

“The Handplane Book” | Best Traditional Woodworking Books & DVDs

08-20-2014 07:19 PM by WoodAndShop | 2 comments »

In the above video I share another one of my absolute favorite books about traditional woodworking: “The Handplane Book” by Garrett Hack. Read my original blog post here. I hesitated to buy this book because I thought it would just be a small book about someone’s handplane collection, but I finally decided to order it online. I was wrong about this book being slim on information. This book is exceptional and very helpful. Not only does the book have beautiful photographs of h...

In my above video I share my recent tour of the traditional carpenter & cooper workshop in at Middleton Place, a former plantation near Charleston, South Carolina. Sorry, the video is a little shaky. But fortunately my photos below are not! Ahhh, what could be better than a traditional workshop in a heavenly location like this? (pssst…ignore the aligators) Nobody was manning their workshop station while I poked my head into this workshop, so I just gave myself a tour. I ...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...
