Refurbish, Reclaim or Reject!! #1: Picked Up and Old, Early Disston today. Is it too far gone?

02-01-2016 01:50 PM by Dex378 | 4 comments »

So I went to my local salvage/resale store today looking for anything cool they might have up in the tool section. After rummaging through all the junk I found a complete postwar Stanley #4 bench plane for $3.00, some halfway decent rasps for $0.25 each, and few other odds and ends. As I was leaving I decided to dig through all the hand saws they had jammed in an old slop sink. After going through about 30 of them I came across an early Disston. I looked at it for a little while and the handl...

Another pile of pine..

03-29-2015 10:26 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

and maybe another table to build?Piled up the “supplies” on the bench. Found a couple other boards as well A couple short 2×4s (legs?) and some assorted 1xs. Those long things in back? Are a couple 3/4” x 6” x 120-1/2” planks of pine. Took the cleaned up 2×4 x36” out of the vise, cleared the benchtop of the rest. Placed the Gray 2×4 x 48” in the vise to joint both edges. Will do the rest of it after it is cut down to le...

Hand Tool Journey #45: Just A Quick Distraction.. Kids Handsaw Build #1

10-13-2014 09:28 PM by Airframer | 5 comments »

As I am smack in the middle of a workbench build for my 16 month old and we are currently waiting on a part to arrive in the mail I thought I would pass the time with a side project for the kid. We were strolling through our neighborhood dollar store the other day looking at Halloween decor and such when I came across a small 12” saw. As an actual usable saw I think I would have been taken for a ride with the $1 price tag but as a starting point for a junior sized “...

Shop Musings #1: Resaw by hand!? - You mean i could've been doing this the whole time!?

09-08-2014 06:21 PM by palaswood | 10 comments »

So quite awhile back I was blessed with a Walker Turner 14” bandsaw for just $100 bucks, which I lauded as my way to finally resaw all these cool boards I’ve ammassed- and to this day I still cant get the blade to stay on. Harumph! So I finally got fed up and said to myself, how hard can it be to resaw by hand!? Since I got my Disston D-7 5 1/2 ppi rip saw, I haven’t even tried! My previous attempts were so awful, that I was discouraged… I started with a test p...

Traditional Woodworking Tours #10: Middleton Plantation Workshop Tour

08-14-2014 01:51 PM by WoodAndShop | 3 comments »

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 ...

Disston Handsaw Restoration #4: Chopping up plane for saw tote

07-16-2014 04:00 AM by Skip Mathews | 15 comments »

I cut up an old plane to get what I think might be beech wood for my num 12 handsaw tote.This plane was for scrap anyway so here we go! Then I cut it to size with my previously restored Disston rip saw.Wow! That saw cuts really fast! Then I joint the edge with one of the planes I cobbled together from a box of six planes I bought on Ebay.The plane I just cut up came out of the same box. Seems strange for some reason?Reminds me of the lyrics “From the forest itself comes th...

Disston Handsaw Restoration #3: Tote Wood

07-15-2014 05:55 AM by Skip Mathews | 4 comments »

I can get the wood to repair the tote on this num 12 Disston if I cut up an old woody plane. In my first post on this saw repair I mentioned having no source for apple wood and that I might need to use Beech instead.It was pointed out to me by Chrisstef that old wood planes are often made of Beech and the wood could be used on my saw. I just happen to have a box of old planes. I bought six old planes on Ebay for about $20 and I was able to cobble together two really nice planes out of the ...
