Wounded Soldier Rides Again #1: Back into battle - Shelton #4

269 days ago by 7Footer | 3 comments »

I looked it up and 111 days ago I said that “in a few days I’ll be done with the Shelton” ... Not surprised that my few days turned into 111. Well it’s finally done with the exception of another coat or 2 of finish on the tote. This is the only plane I have of this style (other than my super smoother from Shampeon – but this one made of all metal and only has a chip breaker with and a cross pin rather than a lever cap), and so any tips / suggestions are appre...

Tote Repair, Fix The Crack #2: Glue up

706 days ago by hhhopks | 3 comments »

A dry run was performed first. Evidently, the original threaded rod that came with the plane is not very straight. The tote will rock back and forth as the threaded rod is being tightened. I can see how such rod can put a lot of stress on the tote and contribute to the breakage. The plane’s original rod will not do. Fortunately, I have another one on hand. Though it is not perfect either but the rocking motion was drastically reduced. After the dry run I had to move my projec...

48" Pocket Door #8: Preparing the bookmatched panel blanks

1046 days ago by GregD | 3 comments »

It has been a long time since my last blog post. Sorry. I was more intent on getting the door done than writing about it. At this point the stile and rail blanks are complete, so I turned to the panels. One option was to make each panel the full thickness of the door – 1 3/4 inches – and raise the panel on each side. A second option is to make panels half the thickness of the door – 7/8 inches – raise the panel on 1 side, and use 2 panels back-to-back for each...

Plow plane restore

163 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Have cleaned the body’s sides of old nasty varnish. Using just a hand plane set as fine as I could set it. and then flattened to sole with a #78 rebate plane. Seems the was a LOT of wear and tear near the front Now, it is all flat and square to the skate. Skate has been ccleaned up a bit. It will remain on the plane, since things might move a bit if it comes off. Fence was also cleaned up, to remove all the old varnish. The rods had a problem, though. Both had spl...

Roubo Workbench Build #4: Slowly progressing.. discouraging?

456 days ago by Willeh | 3 comments »

Still at it.. Unfortunately I havent had much time to put into it over the past little while, but I’ve now planed and glued up the third of 4 sections of the top, and squared up the first 2 sections on the jointer ready to glue together. Found that I lost too much meat out of the width of the top and had to add in two extra boards to get back up over 20 inches wide… Think i’ve decided on the wagon vice.. I just love the way they look and function and I think it’l...

Workbench

1943 days ago by Omegacool | 3 comments »

These are the remains of my old working table. I think it was fair to make a new functional. I have a lot of wood pallets, so I used to start the table. I glued all the wood together. A small accident. By breaking a piece of wood with my hands. All the wood boards Pictures tonight with some lateral aggregates Almost ready flattened FFollowing is the plan of the table legs, generally expect a mixture of the following designs. De Workb...

Tools tools, I love toys, I mean tools #2: Hand tools because it made me feel safer, and my first sharpening/honing attempt...

15 days ago by paxorion | 3 comments »

I’ll admit that I am more a power tool woodworker than a hybrid (and nowhere close to a hand too user). But the more projects I get under my belt, the more I realize that in order to improve as a wood worker, I’m going to have to get more used to hand tools. In some cases, it is probably safer, and not necessarily slower than power tools. I recently edge glued quite a few short pine scraps, to make them wide enough for a few kids toy projects. After edge jointing the pieces,...

Wooden Planes #16: 2013 Plane Swap plane - 37° block

128 days ago by Mark Kornell | 3 comments »

I made this plane for the 2013 Plane Swap. It is also posted as a project, but I thought I’d give more details here. First, I draw up a plan. Fairly simple, but it helps me work out the shaping details and sort out any conflicts with the mouth opening. This plan shows a crosspin, but I changed my mind and went with the more traditional eared approach. It is still a laminated construction, with the ears being glued in after the fact. A bit of a challenge getting them ali...

Unpopular Planes #1: Unpopular, Unloved or just overlooked?

737 days ago by Johnnyblot | 3 comments »

In my time here on LJ’s I have seen, [especially Handplanes Of Your Dreams topic] what great lengths many of us go to, to bring a woodworking tool, in this case Hand Planes back from the junk heap to a full [wood]working life! The big boys, particularly here in the UK are /were:- 1) STANLEY, made in USA & England 2) RECORD, made in England But there are many others available that have not, shall we say been taken to our hearts like those above. So here I’d like to ...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Lower shells complete.

827 days ago by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...
