Shaker Style End table #1: Part #2 The top

03-06-2015 02:27 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Well, did a bit of saw work today. Figured up I needed 3 boards @ 3/4” x 5-1/2” x 25” Circular saw did the work, after I had clamped the 8’ long plank in place. Had enough left over to form the back apron. Dry fit in the pipe clamps, looks good, spread some yellow glue around and clamp them up. Later, after the glue had cured, started to surface the top. A few handplanes to do the job. Had some “marks” on one board that needed to go… ...

I really, really like my first smoothing plane (Thanks, Don W!)

05-14-2012 05:54 PM by BTimmons | 4 comments »

First off, a big thanks to Don W, the Lumberjock I bought this plane from. As anyone who frequents the Handplanes of your dreams or the Show the restoration before and after threads knows, Don is apparently a furiously busy man. He seems to constantly unearth interesting old bits of iron here and there, cleaning them up and selling them to the user market. I browsed the For Sale section of his site for quite some time before deciding that this nice little smoother had to be mine. So here...

Hand tool revalations #1: the revolution has begun

01-08-2012 03:27 AM by Andrew | 4 comments »

It all started with the purchase of a stanley #48, the tongue and groove plane. I saw it on Roy Underhills show the WoodWright. So it is really his fault. Anyway I have slowly and sometimes quickly started accumulating hand tools. So now its time to use them, I chose to make a table out of Pine for a friend. Pine is soft and should be fairly forgiving of mistakes or improper techniques. This is only the beginning, I figure if I can get comfortable with the hand tools, then future pro...

Ohio Tool Company #5 Plane Restoration #1: Part 1

07-31-2009 05:46 PM by David Schmaus | 4 comments »

Well I never thought the day would come when I would actually blog about something. My thinking has been that it is to personal.. Anyways, I thought this might be a good time to start. A first project for me that I would like to document. My Ex and I have been divorced for 14 or so years.. I was over at her new house visiting my 17 year old son and his “new” garage/workshop. Yea 17 and he has his own space. 1 1/2 car detached with plenty of power and a heater.. I&...

Stanley No. 5

03-20-2010 02:21 PM by michaelray | 4 comments »

Recently I’ve made the effort to learn more about hand planes so I’ve posted some of that info over on my personal blog. I’ve been reading and watching the recent book and DVD by Christopher Schwarz and I can tell you I feel like I’ve went up another level in my woodworking skills. My limited success has given me the confidence and excitement to continue pursuing the use of hand planes. I’m by no means a hand tool only woodworker and probably never will be, kudos...

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

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #67: Wood Thickness Rant

03-10-2015 01:24 PM by jerrells | 4 comments »

In my woodworking, either scroll saw or just regular, I strive to be as accurate as possible, perhaps obsessive. One of the things that is driving me nuts lately is the inconsistence of wood thickness. I purchase wood from either the big box hardware store or the two woodworking store in town. What I find, in general, is that if you select two pieces of wood that are marked as the same thickness, they are not. Sometime even 1/16 of an inch difference. Now if I had even a bench planer this ...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #3: Leg stretchers, assembly bolts and bottom shelf.

03-21-2015 05:15 PM by brianb6603 | 4 comments »

This part was very straight forward, The stretchers were assembled from 3 strips of 3/4” BB glued together with Biscuits to help keep everything aligned. The center strip is 1/2” longer to make a tendon. Next I made a router template to make the mortises in the legs. At that point it was just a matter of laying them out and cutting them. While I had the legs out I needed to make clearance slots for the 2 dog holes on each side of the left side leg. ...

End Table project #7: Final assembly, and aPIP?

07-30-2015 09:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Got to get this thing done! Spent the whole day, fixing the door with a handplane. Added cleats to hold a floor Then cut and install a couple floor boards Didn’t have enough plywood. Planks are 1/2”. Screwed in place,but no glue. Got the corner blocks all installedI can then cut slotted holes. Just drill a hole in center of the block, then rock the drill back and forth towards the sides. This allows the top to expand and contract as it wants. A single screw in ...
