The Veritas arrives!

04-08-2010 05:53 AM by Rick Boyett | 4 comments »

Today I opened my mailbox and my eyes were alighted with excitement. My “new to me” Veritas low angle block plane had just arrived. My late night browsing of the Woodnet Swap and Sell forum had really paid off. I’ll let you know how much I paid in the review. Boy ain’t she pretty. :) Just a few small specks of rust on the sole, but no pitting. I’ll get her tuned up this weekend and put her through her paces. However, just inspecting the individual parts...

How Nice Ash Planes are made: A Big Ash load

04-11-2013 06:46 PM by rhett | 4 comments »

It starts with wood, ash to be exact, grown and logged here in Kentucky. This is one of the rare occassions you go out looking for a big ash.Here we see Holger, the logger, cutting lengths of ash down to size. His crew drops marked trees and drags them out to stage. After they are seperated by species, they are cut to the sizes ordered.With the help of a CAT, logs are carefully loaded. Chech out that fat ash on the trailer! Next stop, the sawmill…..

Hand Plane Revival #3: Flattening the sole and sides

02-07-2012 08:40 PM by Willeh | 4 comments »

Above all else, to me, this stage is the most important part of reviving an old hand plane. A flat and polished sole makes it run like new again and perform significantly better. Based on my experience, I would bet that the manufacturing tolerances on old Stanley planes were not too strict, as many of the planes i’ve restored were way out of flat, even if they didn’t seem to be heavily used. A flat polished sole will allow the plane to glide smoothly, will decrease tear-out and...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top

01-25-2015 05:49 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

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 ...
