My Introduction to Hand Planes #2: Collection is growing already

06-27-2016 05:25 PM by GrumpyCub | 5 comments »

I picked up a few more planes since I got the #5 for my birthday. A friend gave me the the wooden plane on top. I believe it is long enough to be considered a jointer. It is stamped New York Tool on the toe end. He also gave me another # 5. This one is the type 19, second from the right. Also pictured are three #4’s. From left to right they are: 1. A Miller’s Falls parts plane. The side of the plane was broken, but the guy at the antique store threw it in with the oth...

My Introduction to Hand Planes #1: The Start of My Collection

06-27-2016 05:18 PM by GrumpyCub | 0 comments »

June has been a good month! For my birthday, my Father gave me the choice of one of two #5 planes he had purchased at an antique store recently. I didn’t know anything about planes and made my selection based on my wife choosing a number between 1 and 10. :-) I was excited to get my first plane and started researching immediately. What I got was a Stanley type 20 #5 in need of cleaning and tuning. Yes. The “dreaded” type 20. Despite finding that it had a less than...

Handplanes #4: Second Mastering Woodworking Show is On-Line

06-24-2016 05:17 PM by CobblerMtn | 2 comments »

The second of the two shows I filmed for Charles Neil’s Mastering Woodworking show aired today. In the first show I discussed the types of handplanes and showed a bit of technique for using planes to flatten wood. In this week’s show, I demonstrate shooting the ends of boards with a shooting board, including mitered edges using a donkey’s ear shooting board. Then I take an old Stanley plane through the restoration process to show how easily it can be done. If you aren&...

06-14-2016 02:57 PM by CobblerMtn | 2 comments »

In April, I published a book based on the classes I teach at Woodcraft on using and restoring handplanes. The book is entitled Choosing and Using Handplanes: All You Need to Know to Get Started Planing by Hand. It’s a good resource for beginning handplane users but it also has tables and reference information more experienced users will find helpful. The book, which runs to 90 pages and has nearly 100 color illustrations, covers the following topics: - The types of handplanes, th...

DIY Tools | Woodworking #2: A 4 Color Screen Printing Press

06-08-2016 11:19 PM by Humus Workshop | 1 comment »

I made this machine based on plans from printingplans.com, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example. This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous mate...
