Handplane Restoration #32: Stanley #55

02-11-2017 11:00 PM by WayneC | 14 comments »

I’m in the process of putting together a complete set of combination planes. I recently added a Stanley 55 and some accessories to go with it. I have a small tool cabinet that I am adapting to store the planes. If you need a manual for the 55 one can be found here Combination Plane Manuals Note: The Hollow and Rounds are for use on a 45. The fence configuration is different between the 45 and the 55 and they do not fit on the 55. Photos below.

Shop stuff #78: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 12: More French Polishing

02-08-2017 02:01 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Going farther than I needed to, but I was experimenting and wanted to show the process. One of my favourite finishes. I think the wax in the shellac caused a few issues. I have only used dewaxed flake shellac before but it is not available locally, so I tried what I could get my hands on. View on YouTube

My Vintage Tools Database

02-07-2017 02:53 AM by Johnny7 | 6 comments »

I have no way of knowing just how many of you can relate to the problem I’m about to discuss, but here goes.After many years of buying, fixing, restoring and (sometimes) selling vintage, non-power, woodworking tools, one thing slowly became evident—there was no way to keep track of it all. It was after the passing of a fellow tool user/hoarder/collector that it first occurred to me to inventory all my tools and develop a record for insurance purposes, if nothing else. I knew...

Project Ideas, Hmm... #7: Luthier toolbox

02-06-2017 08:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 9 comments »

The rumors of my demise have been exaggerated. Between starting to learn this new job, mostly from home, and running my daughter back and forth to concert rehearsals, I’ve had little time to do much aside from gearing up to repair instruments. Which brings me to the title of this post. Right now these tools are living in a shoebox, both the ones I’m using and the ones I anticipate needing in the future. I’ve been thinking about what kind of tool box I could build to house...

3D Printing in the Workshop

02-02-2017 08:46 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 21 comments »

While this topic doesn’t strictly fit into the guidelines of timber product, it does incorporate the processing of said prerequisite, however, to err on the side of veto wizards I decided to blog instead of projecting it. We need to set the mood! Once upon a time there was this aging geriatric, living in Churchill Australia that was getting paranoid about dust inhalation into his alcohol infested body. He chose to purchase a Shop-Vac and attached a few tools to with the...

shop re start the new RMR #2: a little progress

So wish summer would come back so i could work out there without my fingers freezing. a wood stove would be sweet but…. no job means no money for luxuries. Been trying to get the cross-cut sled done for the new tablesaw. but climbing over things to find or gather what i need is frustrating as hell. http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag132/dgiacchino69/new%20shop/DSCN5708.jpg I’m in dire need of some exterior sheeting to close off the other 2/3 s of this pole barn then i would ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1817: Habits

02-01-2017 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

As we begin a new month, I realize how quickly January has slipped by. Time has always seemed so relentless to me, but lately, I find that to be true more than ever. Many of you have noticed that I haven't been writing as regularly or as often as I used to. After over six years of daily posting, I find that I have, indeed, backed off a bit and have taken a bit of a break from it. It felt odd at first, but soon it became something of a 'habit' to NOT write (funny how that happ...
