getting wood #1: work progress

06-24-2014 06:36 PM by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi;getting wood out of a log is a lot of work! yes it is wood just sitting there in the log but that doesn’t exactly help for making tables or chairs. so an update:I spent a couple of days making new saw horses to replace the ones that collapsed: here is an old collapsed one and my helper and here are the new ones: I repaired the broken ones back in 1985. they lasted this long. I figure that these new ones will go to my helper in time. and new legs for my hacking stock I m...

Woodworking In America 2009: Furniture Construction and Design #3: The Tools are Here

08-21-2009 06:40 PM by kshipp | 4 comments »

I got the tools today so I thought I would show you guys what I got. First you can try to guess the hidden objects. They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...

Random thoughts of wood #1: Hand planes aquired!

08-28-2011 08:51 PM by jace_robert | 4 comments »

Well I have begun my journey in woodworking. I purchased the last of my bench planes, I am now the proud owner or a 604, 605 1/2, and 607 Stanley Bedrock planes. I am very excited to get home and start cleaning and restoreing them to a useable condition. It will be a great thing to restore a tool from before my grandparents were born and use it to make peices of my own today! I am currently looking into other hand tools to buy as I am going to start up with Shannon Rodgers hand tool schoo...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #10: No progress but I found out about hull #500

07-21-2013 06:06 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

The closest I’ve come to working on 816 is walking through the shop on the way to work. I did have a surprise the day after I registered my PDR in that the other Manitoban who has a PDR emailed me and introduced himself. Turns out we are only about an hour away from each other. Serendipitiously he was to do an interview that same day with a local radio station to try and stir up some interest in wooden boats. Apparently his hull (#500) is still serviceable and it sounds like he real...

Commisions #13: money box #2

10-23-2008 12:58 AM by teenagewoodworker | 4 comments »

So i finally got some work done today on my box. first i started by making the bottom. because i am using thick material for the sides i wanted to add some rigidness to the box so it is a 1/2” thick poplar bottom and i did the bevel with a hand plane. rather than set up machinery or anything. then it was time to focus on the dividers. these are hard because they are very thin stock and to get them good they have to fit right. so what i did was cut them and did almost what resembl...

NOT your average Screen Door: Assembly time

10-17-2014 06:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...

Pochade Box in progress #3: Pallette, trim and oil

11-29-2013 06:42 AM by Jon1094 | 4 comments »

Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...

Just some planes restored #9: The #4 FrankenPlane

08-29-2011 01:57 AM by Don W | 4 comments »

My Dad always kept a well used military rifle with a cheap scope sighted in and stuck away in the gun cabinet. Every year one of the neighbors, or neighbors kids would stop by wanting to borrow a deer rifle. Not wanting to let out one of his “good” deer rifles, he would gladly hand over the dully worn but fully functional piece put together for just that occasion. Well, just in case somebody stops by my shop and want to borrow a #4 smoother, I thought I’d put together a p...
