Wooden Planes #15: Miscellany

04-17-2014 04:32 AM by Mark Kornell | 1 comment »

SpokeshaveMade from the Lee Valley small shave kit. Beech body. Knives The outer ones are small carving knives. Jatoba on the left and african mahogany on the right. The middle is an ebony marking knife. The blades on the carving knives are HCS jigsaw blades, while the blade on the marking knife came from Grizzly. Chisel Plane Quite possibly the ugliest, crudest plane in my collection. Well, no. Definitely the ugliest and crudest. But it does what it needs to do. Mahoga...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

01-05-2014 08:55 PM by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...

Hernia repair recovery #2: Ok Post number three in this series and I've finally got something to say

09-04-2013 06:40 PM by mungletroll | 0 comments »

I’ve now decided on what my next project is. A small pendant in Boxwood. It will, of course by a heart but it is based on a more complex heart design than just the basic one. This is a design that I have used before but never published and I don’t remember seeing anyone else using it but of course someone will see this and put me right on that. So the design is based upon two stylised heads, suggested as being male and female, and the way they come together forms a heart, we...

Feeling sore and creative - not a good combination

08-30-2013 09:14 AM by mungletroll | 4 comments »

Well, yesterday I was in hospital for a triple hernia repair, I’m not sure how I managed that but that’s life I suppose. Anyway, here I am with time on my hands and the urge to create something but sore as hell, not allowed to lift anything heavier than a cup of tea and unable to walk long distances. So what do I do about this. Well, I’ve caught up on posting some past projects on here and I thought maybe I should start something new and document progress. I’...

Got some scrap wood and a railroad spike? Make a drawknife....

06-04-2013 05:05 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Drawknives. They can be expensive or cheap. They are used by green woodworkers and chairmakers (for the spindles). You can use them for taking bark off trees as well. With only a $1 railroad spike and some scrap lumber you can make your own drawknife. Also view a different way of placing handles on your homemade tools tangs. It must be noted that I do not condone taking railroad spikes off of tracks. It is illegal and you can get in serious trouble for theft and/or killed by a big freaking ...

Making a Folding/Pocket Knife #1: Layout, stock removal, and mechanisms

03-17-2013 07:26 AM by bobasaurus | 2 comments »

(This is mostly metalworking, though it does use wooden jigs and scales eventually) After building a cheap folding knife kit from Woodcraft (which was just making some scales, bolting things together, and sanding/finishing), I became interested in making one myself from scratch. I talked to a coworker who makes knifes and did some internet research before placing an order for lots of knife stuff from Jantz supply: This includes a flat bar of O1 tool steel for the blade and mechanis...

The old time woodshop journals #20: From maple shaves to maul

08-08-2012 07:35 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

I decided to turn the shop inside out recently moving some things about and bringing out my shavehorse with a maple branch in hand. I have been yearning to get back on this horse needing to get some draw knife work in and let the shaves cover me with a wisdom that only nature hides inside itself. Handtool woodworking has some mysterious outlet of stress and satisfaction I gather only us newave hobbiest’s need to feed our efforts of taming its addicting applications. The drawing of th...

I’ve been wanting to build a shave horse for a while now and with the purchase of a draw knife, a shave horse is now needed. I used an old oak pallet and a single tree. Go check it out.
