Shoulder plane

04-08-2016 02:01 AM by madts | 2 comments »

This post is dedicated to my good Danish pal Mads. I was in Denmark this winter as my dad was ailing and did die.He was 92 and he wanted to go.While i was there I got to visit with Mads, which is always great. At that visit he gave me this. This was a challenge to me as I have always wanted to make a shoulder plane.I had some repurposed maple doors that I used. I had to glue several pieces together to make the body. After the glue up I did the geometry and made some cuts and s...

Curved Front End Table #3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up

03-26-2016 12:29 PM by Guy Dunlap | 6 comments »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...

Plant stand #5: Corbels and bow-ties

03-23-2016 02:48 PM by BJODay | 1 comment »

Time to cover my mistakes with corbels. I cut the tenons first. It is easier to hold onto a longer workpiece. Below I’ve laid out the desired curves. Here is how they are cut out on the band saw. Here is how the will be positioned. The pieces are too small to try to use a pattern and flush bit on the router table. So I use a drum sander kit on the drill press. This worked better and faster than I expected. Here is a quick look at how the upper corbels will be positioned....

Plane irons of Olde

03-19-2016 08:23 PM by james3one | 6 comments »

Do Not, Do Not, Do Not replace your old Stanley Irons. In case you missed it, Do Not replace your old Stanley Hand Plane Irons. It’s become an automatic assumption that you have to switch out those old feeble irons and put in a new, thick, cryogenically treated, advanced powdered steel, walks on water, slices dices and juliennes blade. The old blades work, Especially if you don’t grind them off. Take the old blade, hone the edge and get to work. The only exception might be ...

Center Keyed Box Joints

03-18-2016 12:08 AM by Katz-Moses Woodworking | 6 comments »

Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional. If you like this video and want to get updates on my future projects please subscribe to my Youtube Channel. You can also see 1...

The art of building Wooden boats

03-16-2016 03:14 AM by BigBrownLog | 8 comments »

I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...

OCTAGONAL TRIVETS

03-15-2016 04:35 AM by BertFlores58 | 2 comments »

THE DESIGN This is the design where it has started. At first, I thought it was difficult due to complicated angles. but what I realized later there were only two angles that will be cut namely: 22.5 deg and 45 deg cut. The 45 degree is only used when the star in the middle is to be done. THECONSTRUCTION So I started with making the stripes. I glued 4 pcs of stacks that I already prepared in making the coaster. Selecting the 4 colors: green (not know wood), black (kamagong), bro...

Just planes...

03-10-2016 04:49 AM by Brodan | 5 comments »

It seems the natural progression of a new woodworker or at least for myself is the accumulation of tools. I suppose my years as a journeyman toolmaker, and love for “old” things naturally lead me to dig through the dusty junk of crowded shelves within the many “antique” stores my wife and I enjoy visiting. With the exception of the new shoulder plane from my wife, my planes have been “junk” store finds. Cleaned up and tuned, these tools have been a pleasur...

Shop stuff #42: Router plane tune up

03-09-2016 02:59 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I spent yesterday cleaning and tuning up the router plane I got from Matthew Morris. I also decided to edit the video and get it posted on You Tube. It was a long day and I am pretty tired today from staying up so late, so without much fanfare and ado, I am just going to drop it in here. View on YouTube
