Split Top Roubo Bench Build #10: Mounting the Criss-Cross

03-23-2015 01:05 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Yesterday I picked up a 1 – 1/4” forester bit and a 3/8” x 10” long brad point bit at Woodcraft. The forstner bit is for drilling the hole through the chop and leg for the leg vise. The bit is too short to make it all of the way through the leg so I also need to get a forstner bit extension. The 3/8” bit is for the pins that hang the Criss-Cross on the chop and leg. The chop is 9” wide so this was barely able to make it through. I didn’t want to hassl...

Book Bench #1: The Project & The Legs (profiles)

11-17-2010 07:31 PM by spunwood | 4 comments »

The Project In Mid/Late September a friend of ours mentioned to Stephanie that she was looking for something like a window seat with book shelves/storage…sans window. I jumped at the opportunity to try my hand. I had a plan by William Draper, a PA craftsman from an August 1996 edition of American Woodworker, pg. 32 (off of google). I had been really wanting to try my hand at the bench. I loved the profile, the simple style, and the chance to hone basic skills such as mortise &...

Tool Chest #2: Starting The Lid

12-04-2011 04:06 AM by JaLatham | 4 comments »

Ripping stock to size. I really don’t know why I was staying so far from the line. Not that it matters. Apparently my sawing has been getting better. I stayed away from the line to allow for wandering of the saw blade, but it tracked so straight that I think I can stick right next to the line next time. Jointing sawn edges. While I know that the shavings aren’t what is important, seeing the difference in the shavings of my jointer plane(on top), and my fore plane(on ...

Tips #2: Sharp Enough

01-14-2009 07:54 PM by drknoxy | 4 comments »

So 1/2” thick glass is like 30$, and the 1/8” glass they sell at home depot and lowes cracks real easily (personal experience), but MDF with laminate on all sides is 6$. I gave it a quick test run for lapping the soles of my #5, #4 stanley planes last night and it worked wonders. I think I have to pick up a different kind of spray adhesive though, the one I’m using leaves me sticky but not the paper… it is just normal sandpaper, the wet or dry is expensive and only ...

2X4 Winter Contest #1: The beginning

01-07-2008 04:16 AM by Jamie | 4 comments »

Well, I started working on my 2×4 project today. Last weekend I picked up a bunch of 2×4’s at Lowes to construct a new lumber rack, with 1 to spare for the contest. I was a little afraid that one 2×4 wouldn’t be enough to complete the project, but it looks like I will have a few scraps left. I cut some of the pieces today, 4 – 18” long pieces have been jointed and edge-glued together to form one plank (needed it to be a little longer than what is r...

Building a new handplane.

02-26-2010 03:16 AM by Sean | 4 comments »

Finally got a digital camera!For a while I have wanted to make a Krenov style hand plane. I have recently been going more and more into handtools, and wanted to enjoy making the plane, as well as enjoying the feel of a tool sculpted to my hands.I started with the book on the subject, Making and Mastering Wood Planes by David Finck. I’ve been having trouble with my lumberyard finding any decent stock, either Maple, or Beech, or anything else to the size I need. And plus, I’d lik...

My First Workbench #10: Day 10: Glue up finished, starting on joinery

08-21-2012 10:19 PM by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

If you want to see the version with all the pictures, please click here. I got up with the sun today to get a head start on bench before the munchkins got up. First order of business was to unclamp the 2nd half that I glued up last night. Then, after a quick run with the plane to smooth out the mating faces, I glued up the two halves. It’s now one massive slab of wood where a little over a week ago, it was just a collection of 16 2×4s. This thing is gratifyingly heavy as well. ...

Another pile of pine #6: Wrapping things up, I hope

04-12-2015 06:21 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, last seen, that Island Project needed a door installed. Boss brought home a pair of oversized hinges of brass plated slendour. Then we went back out and found a magnetic catch to hold the thing closed. First off, the installed door.. Plywood had bowed a bit, in the wrong directions. Block plane to shave a few spots. Tried the catch at the top near the knob….didn’t catch. Ok, we’ll try at the bottom. Got the magnet part on. and the plate on…..F sty...

New Tools and Tool Experiences #2: Plane, English

07-06-2009 02:54 AM by thiel | 4 comments »

A few months ago on ebay, I picked up a couple planes. I’m a “power tool guy” (and frankly, what I see you guys do with hand tools looks like black magic to me!), but I figured I should see what all the fuss is about. Having never used a SHARP plane before, I was certain I didn’t need them! In the intervening months, I quit my job, moved to another state, and—perhaps most importantly—acquired a honing guide and a working knowledge of Scary Sharp. Th...

Vermont Lap Desk: Starting up

04-13-2013 08:02 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Let’s see, already had a plank that could be a lid for the desk project. And I still had some lumber left over. Not the prettiest stuff, though The smaller plank looked about the same. Smaller one was just enough to make one side piece with a sloped edge, and a flat area on one end. Used this as a pattern for the other side piece There was a few items there that i had to work around. There was a crack running the length of the board, and a bid, old knot Hand saw...
