Building a Moving Fillister Plane #2: Boxing, Depth Stop, Fence and even a nicker

06-16-2014 01:30 AM by Wally331 | 7 comments »

Pics will be in a few minutes… Where exactly did I leave off last time…ahh the main body is essentially done, and now all the adjustment features are all that’s left. Boxing The one weakness of cherry for planes is that it’s just a little bit soft. Not much softer then beech, but enough that a harder sole will help over the years. Especially on a fillister or rabbet plane where almost all of the wear is on a corner. I chose bubinga to box it with, because its ...

Making a toted coffin smoother

06-06-2014 12:26 AM by Wally331 | 14 comments »

Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...

James Krenov Inspired Case #5: Knife Hinges and Case Assembly

03-23-2014 10:20 PM by Guy Dunlap | 12 comments »

In this video, I cut in the mortises for the knife hinges in the bottom and top of the case. Then perform the final glue up of the cabinet. I also make a very big mistake along the way can you guess what it is? If you have any questions, please let me know, as I would love to hear from you. Thanks for watching! http://youtu.be/7-VVLBNZc9Y

A Krenov-style plane making workshop at Lee Valley (Toronto)

03-22-2014 01:13 PM by toolmike | 0 comments »

For anyone wishing to start making wooden planes, I suggest something like this 2-day workshop at Lee Valley.I took the workshop run by Steven Der-Garabedian last June, and had a great time. I have to admit the plane still isn’t “finished” – it’s hard to cram everything into 2 days – so it still needs its curves added. But it cuts beautifully. To be honest there aren’t a lot of tool-making workshops out there, especially in Canada. ANybody have any...

03-26-2012 02:42 AM by Dave | 17 comments »

what i've been doing #19: Krenov part two.

02-24-2012 06:10 PM by Dave | 24 comments »

Here is the second part of my krenov build. I had to modify the plans a bit to fit a two inch iron. I placed a good edge on my old plane iron but it was to brittle. So I had to use a new style iron and chip breaker. I used a wine stain to give it a bit of depth. Then I sanded with 120 grit to seal the pores and used an oak gel stain. The last coat of color was walnut. It was sanded again and airbrushed with waxed shellac. I used about a 3/4 pound cut. Because of the iron change the wedge is a...

what i've been doing #17: Journey with me and Krenov.

01-30-2012 07:40 AM by Dave | 39 comments »

I am a type of guy that will get a notion to do something and just go with it. I found a plan online of a Krenov plane using Hock irons. I don’t have a hock Iron, I do have an old two inch smoother iron from Providence Tool Co. So I choose to modify the plans a bit to see if I could get the thing to work. I know the Krenov style is one of the easiest to build.This will be a two part series and I am at the glueup. First the materials. The base of the plane is good old Mississippi swee...

Firewood Plane #1: Alternative Plane Blanks

10-26-2011 06:01 AM by tr33surg3on | 3 comments »

It seems I had nothing better to do tonight, because I ended up splitting a plane blank out of a piece of firewood and planing the four faces down. Partially it was to see if I could do it. Partially it was to try out a beater Stanley #5 I picked up a few weeks ago without having to go through the trouble of actually lapping, sharpening or otherwise tuning it properly. And partially I realized the turning blanks I picked up from the Rockler scrap bin are probably just a bit too small...
