Hand planes #2: Antique mall pick-ups

02-24-2017 05:07 PM by Mike54Ohio | 5 comments »

So since it in the near 70’s in NE Ohio, I went golfing with some buddies, in February no less, Wednesday and on the way home stopped at an antique mall on the way and lo and behold: for all you wooden plane collectors out there (I haven’t started on these so no buys here): And after poking around for a bit I came up with these: I got 2 Sweethearts- A no. 5 and no. 4 plus a no. 5 Defiance and a no. 4 Wards Master which I think is a Miller Falls made one (red frog)...

Hand planes #1: My 1st hand plane restoration

02-21-2017 04:52 AM by Mike54Ohio | 1 comment »

So a couple years ago my wife and I decided to remodel the kitchen (long overdue) and part of the project was ripping out all the carpeting downstairs and installing hardwood floors and new stair treads and risers. This project brought about my first hand plane purchase (a Wood River block plane) which I hardly used for the project and didn’t really look at it again until recently. So fast forward to late last year and I’m making some cutting boards for Christmas presents and in s...

View on YouTube In this video I take some Oak stock that I previously prepared and make a picture frame. Repetitive parts have been edited out. Total real time to make this was about one hour start to finish, not including the 30 minutes clamping time.

Shop storage projects #22: Frame works, false fronts, and other mishaps.....

02-17-2017 02:11 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, trying to get caught up here. Had the sides done, and the drawer ready to be glued up. Needed to build some webframes to make this into a case to hold two drawers… First I set aside a blank to make a false front for the bottom drawer, to ensure it didn’t get resawn down to make a the frames… Caption says this is a tenon cutter. That is only half right, as I have to move the jig one more time.. To make these “dominoes”. When all were cut, I wou...

Shop storage projects #21: Need a dresser for chisels, starting up

02-13-2017 03:40 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Main dresser is done, and almost loaded up. A drawer I had found on the curb during Trash Day provides the start for the next little project. I had that old box of chisels, that needed a better place to hang out in.. This is the drawer I found. I separated the chisels into two groups. The Plastic handle crowd was laid out in the drawer, and some scrap pine was added as dividers.. I’ll finish nailing the dividers in place later. There is a place to stash a small chest of...

Handplane Restoration #33: Tony - Stanley Bedrock 602

02-13-2017 12:17 AM by WayneC | 6 comments »

I got an awesome buy it now deal on this plane. I did a light clean-up this afternoon to get him in the tool box. The plane got its name from a crudely scrawled owner’s name “Tony” on the side and tote. I’m down to two bedrocks to complete the full set.

Handplane Restoration #32: Stanley #55

02-11-2017 11:00 PM by WayneC | 14 comments »

I’m in the process of putting together a complete set of combination planes. I recently added a Stanley 55 and some accessories to go with it. I have a small tool cabinet that I am adapting to store the planes. If you need a manual for the 55 one can be found here Combination Plane Manuals Note: The Hollow and Rounds are for use on a 45. The fence configuration is different between the 45 and the 55 and they do not fit on the 55. Photos below.

Honey locust outdoor bench. #1: The start of my outdoor bench.

02-08-2017 04:51 PM by mchapman87 | 1 comment »

So I am finally getting started on making a few new pieces out of my small garage woodshop. Money has been tight and I haven’t been able to get the wood I need to fiddle around with. I was given a load of rough milled lumber from a friend who is just learning how to use his mill. Most of the pieces are not flat, pretty wavy but are fairly thick. This helps because I can take off some material flattening the pieces, making them useable boards. He didn’t charge me an...
