Beginner Plane Restoration #1: Why I decided to do this, and my initial impressions of the plane

05-28-2015 06:11 AM by bbasiaga | 6 comments »

I recently came up with a project idea that will benefit from the use of a hand plane. Unfortunately, I don’t have one! After hours of research on old threads here, and soliciting some great feedback on a thread of my own, I had all but decided to buy a Veritas #3 low angle smoother. Then, my wife’s job situation became quite unstable. While we are working that out, I thought I could spend a small amount of money and give a restoration a try. I have the time (projects on ho...

The Bonfire Chair build blog

05-23-2015 09:01 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 11 comments »

This is the blog describing how i made this chair. For a long time I have had this corner of my garden that have a place for a bonfire. We use it a lot and the favorite is making pancakes using a pan on a long stick. My son loves it! But the place itself could use some help. Especially the chairs are a bit annoying. I keep them because they were a gift from a friend and have a fun story to them (they are made by the inmates of a local prison that houses long term prisoners): The ...

building a bench and stuff #3: Building the end vise for ma bench

05-19-2015 04:33 AM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

I needed an end vise for ma bench. So I built one. White oak was the hardest wood I had on hand in a useable quantity. I’ll try to keep it short. Didn’t have a large enough piece for the chop(?) but I had 2 that I really liked. So I joined them with a sliding dovetail. Made with table saw, chisel and a home made router plane (the block of oak with the Allen wrench sticking out). I cut rabbets into the bottom guide rails simply because I bought a new to me plow plane. It ...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 6 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

scraper??

05-09-2015 03:09 AM by Skip Mathews | 3 comments »

I found this gnarly old tool when I bought a box of antique planes online.I am not sure if this is a known tool or someone’s creation.I works great as a scraper. I just run a file across the edge to form a burr and it creates some pretty good shavings.(the shavings in the picture are not from the scraper :)You tap on the wedge at the back end and the other end clamps down on the blade.I have been running is side to side and like it better than a pull scraper.

Lonnie Bird's School #3: Making & Fitting a Drawer

05-01-2015 03:38 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

Day Four of class was spent making the drawer. I started with some more practice but eventually we were told Practice was over and it is time for the real thing. First up is to cut the pin sockets. Sharp, crisp corners are the goal. I was pleased with mine. The drawer back was roughed out to save some time, here’s what I started with. Next I laid out my drawer parts and labeled each matching joint. No way did I want to miscut one of these. I mentioned last time what a dif...

Work station / Outfeed table

04-28-2015 07:13 PM by Gbluee | 0 comments »

I was in need of reorganizing my work space, so I started with finishing this fir bench that I had framed up a few years back to double it as a outfeed table. All the wood used was reclaimed, therefore at no cost. At this point I will move it to it’s new spot in my shop and match the table saw to the back left corner and line up for routing out Miter slide tracks in the top. The handles are made of Spalted Oak. You can see a video of the build here… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nppe9...

Stanley 60 1/2 block plane restore

04-23-2015 02:40 AM by MNclone | 1 comment »

Came across a 60 1/2 block plane at a garage sale last summer for a couple bucks. It was in great shape except for the massive cracks on both sides of the mouth. So I picked up some crusty 60 1/2 parts on eBay to make a complete plane. The japanning was pretty much gone on the replacement cap and body, so after some time in electrylosis it got some duplicolor engine enamel. The blade, depth adjuster, knob, and eccentric lever were all taken from the original plane.So here you ha...
