DIY HAND PLANES #1: shoulder plane based on Mafe and Div info

05-04-2014 01:56 AM by cyclops4069 | 4 comments »

Having now made my first hand plane, I was eager to try something a little more challenging. Something about the shape and delicacy of the components that made up a shoulder plane (and in particular the small shoulder planes that Mafe had been playing with in one of his Blog builds, also based on Div’s beautiful shoulder plane that he gifted to Mafe)....I think I was just hypnotised by the beauty of both of these planes and needed to make one. Firstly I decided on the style and the d...

Block plane........

01-31-2012 09:40 PM by RossF | 4 comments »

This past weekend I went to a local gun show with a friend of mine not expecting to run across any tools. Out of the 50 or so vendors there I walk up to a table full of old tools and my heart starts beating a bit quicker. Never expected to see some cool old tools at a gun show. The guns were nice to look at but out of my price range. I look around and see lots of old tools but nothing I’m looking for until I find this old block plane. It has the number 0220 on the front and on the ba...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #3: Surface Planing

05-08-2011 08:54 PM by Will Stokes | 4 comments »

In the past I’ve tried to do something new in every project, a new type of joinery, using a new tool, pattern routing, etc. This is probably one of the first real projects in a while that I’ve made a conscious decision not to do that (because this way the project will be easier and go more smoothy, right? :-) ) That said, I can’t help but try out a few new techniques to better accomplish the same steps I’m familiar with along the way. Last time it was using the jig-saw...

Building without a plan

01-30-2017 01:26 AM by bbasiaga | 4 comments »

I recently built a plane till for my hand planes. This was one of the first things I’ve done where I didn’t draw up a plan before I started. I see a lot of posts from beginning woodworkers asking for plans for things. They see something they like, but then don’t know where to start or have a vision of something they want to build but have a hard time understanding how it would go together. Well, I crossed a major bridge on that in this recent project. Instead of spend...

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...
