24 hours later and I’m back in my favorite chair! It sounds like some has already sourced plane irons in many different ways. Good! Bertha is ordering a brandnew blade, Derosa found some old plane blades at a local junk store and his Dremel with cutting disc is eager to go! Grittyroots has some old molding planes and wants to use an iron from on of those. Bearpie in Jacksonville has some old worn out metal cutting saw blades about 1/8” thick by 2” wide and 18” long. Good ide...
Sharpening Chisels episode introduces two ways to sharpen chisels. ; With the help of Steve from Wood Working for Mere Mortals we explore these methods
I recently built a primitive cabinet with surface mounted hinges. The hinges were new and looked cheesy on the cabinet. I thought about painting the hinges black- but then decided to rust them instead. Rusting hinges and other metal parts for primitive furniture is EASY and QUICK. 2. Do not use a good pan. (Yes- I learned that the hard way today.) Soak your hinges etc in apple cider vinegar overnight. 3. The next day put equal parts liquid bleach and water in an OLD pan and put your part...
We continue on with the build and get our dados sorted out.
This is a versatile little cabinet in which you can store whatever your heart desires in it. The overall dimensions for this project is 21”w x 11 ¼”d x 13 ¼” h. Of course if you need something bigger than make it bigger, or to fit your needs. I am using Baltic Birch for mine but use whatever material you feel like using. As always if you have any questions email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.—http://blip.tv/file/4726686
So I am warming up this new season with dust collection issue. I go through the steps to make dust collection for my contractor style table saw. This is mainly for me to get used to the new camera and video software if it is boring I apologize for that….. The better ones are yet to come.
Ever tried cornhole? If not then you need too. It’s pretty addicting around a group a friends. Great for those tailgating days or outdoor parties. I made a little video showing how I make my cornhole boards, maybe it will inspire you to make a set for yourself and some for your friends! Enjoy…..
Many old planes and tools featured brass elements such as screw caps, adjustment wheels ext ext. In most cases you cant even tell that its brass because of how dirty it is. Most all of the old Stanley planes have brass nuts on the knob and tote and a brass adjustment wheel. There are other makes that featured brass nuts and wheels as well. If there is one area of the cleaning/restoring process where you spend a little extra time and effort this is it. When polished and cleaned the brass el...
Here are some folding sawhorses that I built a few months back and added them as a project. I had recorded the building process but was unable to get the files off of my camera to edit them due to a lost software, but I bought a new software so here is the video! You can find some more information like the cutting layout, dimensions, hardware and some more detailed photos on my blog, The Woodworking Trip. I really like these sawhorses and I have built myself two sets. One that I use...
When cleaning furniture, a little water is usually all you need. Most of the time you don’t need store bought furniture polishes or waxes. Most furniture these days just need to be dusted and if really dirty cleaned with a moist rag. Wax will build up and can leave the finish streaky and sticky. Some products may even have a solvent in them to cut oil and grease that can soften the finish of the piece. What I normally do is wet a rag and wring it out as much as possible. This le...
