Butterfly Dining Table #2: Bent Laminated Lower Rails

10-19-2015 08:06 PM by Guy Dunlap | 5 comments »

In this video, I create the form to bend the walnut for the bent laminated lower rails. Then I resaw the walnut, thickness it, and use the form to create the radius for the the rails.

Stanley 45 box #8: Internal Fittings

10-19-2015 06:50 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

If the plane and it’s accessories aren’t to be clattering around, then I needed to add some internal fittings. There are all sorts of complicated solutions to be found on the net, and as lovely as some of them are, I don’t see the point in over-engineering the fittings. The plane and it’s accessories should be easy and quick to both store and retrieve. Additionally, there are some optional accessories that I would like to add at a future date, and keeping things simple...

Shop stuff #6: A quick re-furb on a Record No 078

10-13-2015 01:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I bought this one at the local Ciderfest a couple of weeks ago and decided I would do a bit of work to it in order to see what I had. I will likely do some further tuning to it as I do with all my things as I go along, but this was just to get it working. I guess everyone who does woodworking videos on You Tube is obliged to do some sort of sharpening video and I am counting this as mine. I suppose I could have split this up into shorter segments, but wanted to keep the continuity. Makin...

Stanley 45 box #4: Groovy

10-12-2015 05:37 PM by Mitch Peacock | 0 comments »

Having mitred the corners, the temptation is to glue the box sides together – a mistake I made once, but never again! Of course you need to make provision for the box bottom and lid first. You could just rebate for the bottom, and rely on glue and pins, but I like to float the bottom in a groove. And a sliding lid, with it’s lack of hardware, makes an ideal choice and also requires a groove. Therefore it seemed only fitting to use the no.45 to make the grooves, which is what I ...

Slow Days at the Shop. #3: Bench Planes!

10-10-2015 10:40 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

With over 100,000 avid or prospective woodworkers on this site, I would not be surprised to learn that there are fifty thousand blogs about bench planes. We love our bench planes, we like to use them and we want to talk about them. As of recently, I have 8 of them in use, which is 2 more than normal and 6 more than I usually need. While I learned about making cabinets and furniture young, I have done far more general carpenter work in my career. In my truck I carry a 9 inchish smoot...

Hand tools #1: They're everywhere. They're EVERYWHERE!!

09-28-2015 11:43 AM by CFrye | 54 comments »

It’s hard to believe just two short years ago the only hand tools I owned were a retractable measuring tape and a few miniature tools (6” nail bar, vise grips, etc). Then I joined Lumberjocks and shortly thereafter The Hand Plane Swap. That’s when I got The Affliction (or it got me)! I bought two block planes, then a bench plane, then…you get the idea. It didn’t stop with planes. I went to check out a Craig’s List ad for planes and not finding any in my pri...
