Life as an Amateur Woodworker #67: Work on the Workbench!

01-25-2016 11:56 PM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

My workbench is now a little over a year old, although it is a great bench, I am not 100% happy with it, as the timbers have dried out, they have shrunk, and gaps have opened up between the planks on the top. Also when I made the bench, I left the front plank higher than the others, so it would act like a built in bench dog This worked, but it was not a brilliant idea, because it meant leaning over to work on the rest of the bench, when I needed flat space, or if I was gluing up...

Reclaimed Glory #4: Workbench from reclaimed/salvaged lumber - mounting a face vise

08-21-2013 07:01 AM by palaswood | 4 comments »

I got started in woodworking about six months ago when I brought home a small log that was cut from a much bigger log off a black mulberry tree down the street that has fallen apart due to age, its own weight and who knows what else (but yields gobs of incredibly sweet fruit) As I stripped the bark and saw what was inside, I was mezmerized. This is a very old tree and yielded gorgeous wood. One thing led to another, and I began in earnest to amass a hoard of wood from anywhere I cou...

Wooden Planes #10: High-angle Block

04-16-2014 03:26 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

This one doesn’t see much use because it is fairly specialized. The bed angle is 60 degrees, highly useful in certain applications. Completely useless in most others. :-) That’s too bad, because it is a nice fit in the hand. It tends to be hard to adjust. Tapping the iron to advance is fine, but tapping the back of the plane is just as likely to either do nothing or loosen the wedge as it is to retract the iron. The applied shock when you tap it at the back doesn’t me...

Wooden Planes #12: Jatoba smoother

04-16-2014 03:37 AM by Mark Kornell | 4 comments »

This is another jatoba plane. Apart from sanding end grain, jatoba is a relatively easy wood to work with. Machines well, holds an edge and seems to be pretty stable. I’ve also not (yet) encountered any boards with reaction wood. Kind of smells like a wet dog when being cut. I like it for planes because it is dense – the added mass in a small plane really helps performance. No stripes this time, just jatoba and an ipe sole. The bed is a fairly steep 60 degrees, which releg...

Stanley No. 8 Jointer Plane

03-21-2010 02:29 PM by michaelray | 4 comments »

From SawdustStanley No. 8 New (to me) Stanley No. 8 Jointer Plane I picked up on line. No restoration has been done, at least by me, and I’m not sure I plan on doing any. I’ve tested it out but haven’t had time to fully put it to work yet. The one thing I have done is sharpened and slightly cambered the iron which seems to work well. Eventually I would like to replace the irons in my Stanleys with a Hock iron and chipbreaker. More photos can be found here.

Cheap TV Table: the top

02-20-2013 03:25 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

The two planks that made up the top, were a bit cupped, gluing them up into a top didn’t help out much. Although I took the top out of the clamps I still kept them handy. I used two of the pipe clamps to hold the top steady whilest i did a little flattening The one face wasn’t too bad, so just a wide Jack plane to level the field, and a smoother to, well, smooth things out Flipped the top over, as I wanted both faces cleaned up. I hadn’t decided which face wo...

Re-thinking a Parts Plane

07-17-2012 01:44 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

A while back, I bought a “Parts Plane” for another plane rehab project. I was interested in the bolts, and the frog. When the plane arrived, along with some other parts, I decided to try things out. Bad mistake, actually…. The Parts Plane: Not much to look at,is there? a gray base, and red frog, and some handles that need some work. I slipped some needed parts onto this Parts plane, and decided a “Test Drive” would be fun… The parts inst...

Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk #3: Legs and Apron Completed

05-01-2012 05:58 PM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

Right, just realized I have more pictures and work done, and haven’t updated this yet… Not a whole lot of an update I guess. I was able to finish the mortises in the legs, and got some pocket hole screws drilled and fastened the legs and apron pieces together. I also used my restored #7c to take off an inch of the width on the table top, to get it down to the correct width, and then cut an inch or so off the end (crosscut). I don’t have a picture of it, but I also put a c...
