Making New Cocobolo Handles/Totes and Knobs for my Hand Planes -A How To

12-23-2014 12:25 AM by BigRedKnothead | 23 comments »

I got a wild hair to upgrade the wood on my Lie Nielsen planes from the stock cherry to cocobolo. There’s always more than one way to get the job done, but I’ll share my way. There’s lots of good pics along the way to help. So here goes. Safety note: Most all of us are at least mildly allergic to rosewood and other exotics. Where a mask….or you’ll wish you had. Just drilling cocobolo makes my eyes and nose itch. The Handles: You’ll want some 1×...

Triple Chaos #1: A CBG Called Amália, the making of

12-22-2014 09:00 PM by Serradura | 4 comments »

Well, technically it’s not a cigar-box guitar because the (new) box was made for 3 small sample bottles of booze, Port to be precise. The name Amália has everything to do with a Portuguese Fado-guitar being the inspiration for this build. More detailed pictures on Triple Chaos

Stanley Bailey #4 hand plane restoration

12-12-2014 07:39 PM by RecyclingDave | 6 comments »

I’m new to hand planes so I wanted to start with fixer uppers because I feel like the end result is the effort you put into it. I picked up a Stanley Bailey #4 and Millers Falls #9? For $40/pair. This is just the start with the Bailey and all I have done so far is a bath in Evapo Rust. More pics and progress to come. Any pointers are welcome as this is new to me. After an Evapo Rust bath

Stanley #26: the rebuild,part 2

12-11-2014 02:44 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Rest of the plane is now done. Now comes the rear handle. Last seen, it had a pair of extra brass screws in it’s top, and a crack near the bottom Tried to glue the larger crack back together with a Locktite CA glue. Didn’t look like it should. The top was missing a “horn” and had two screws holding what was left. Rumaged around in the “Spares” box. The box where the frog’s yokes were found. A handle was in there about the same si...

Scobie Box #3: Gluing up and starting to add finish

12-09-2014 03:53 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Gluing up was quite an interesting time with so many pieces to go together at once. I did the ends first then dry fitted everything to make sure all of the joints would fit up square prior to adding the glue and clamping (using the offcuts from the legs when clamping) I have added one coat of Danish Oil but need to get the lid on before I can finish the handles and add finish to them.

Stanley #26 Jack plane, the rebuild

12-09-2014 01:43 AM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Got a Stanley #26 jack plane in the mail. $15 + FREE shipping. Opened the box and found.. A mess. Body was way too thin. Rust everywhere, And a few other problems Like a tote with THREE brass screws and a break near the bottom. Tote will serve as a “model” for a newer one. Body was not only too thin up by the toe, but it was thicker at the heel, by about 1/2”. Got all the parts apart, and started to clean them up. The frog had a problem. The yo...

Making a Nicker

12-06-2014 12:45 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

Last week I scored this lovely wooden moving fillister plane for all of $10 at a flea market. It’s in great shape other than the obvious missing nicker. Time to have a go at working metal. I got some O1 tool steel, pulled out my grinder and files and made me a nicker. All told it took me a couple of hours to form the exact shape. I still need to refine the cutting edge a bit more. And of course, I’m going to harden and anneal it. For a more step-by-step with lots mor...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #32: Christmas Present to myself!

12-01-2014 10:35 PM by PhilBello | 3 comments »

I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

Flea Market Finds

11-30-2014 07:40 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

Super happy with today’s goodies: 1. A Marples knife blade marking gauge. $7 2. Drawknife of unknown origin. $5 3. H. Wells moving filletster plane. $10 Head over heals about the plane. I’ve been scouring eBay and other sources for one just like this. Overall it’s in really good shape. Took it apart, cleaned it up and oiled the depth stop screw. I’ll need to sharpen the blade later. It’s got a small crack in the fence, which I just glued up and sh...
