Sapele & Cherry Kitchen Table #1: Getting started in a big way

64 days ago by CaptainKlutz | 4 comments »

Not a fan of blogs as I don’t need any more computer time, but figured I’d make my first one (maybe my last).So where to start? SWMBO has been asking for a new kitchen table to replace an existing $100 press board & Formica piece of junk.I haven’t made much from Cherry in many years, and have been accumulating a few 4/4 boards from CL thinking, if I found some decent 8/4, then I would start the kitchen table. Several months ago, I learned that one of the local cabi...

65 days ago by cdnstudentwoodworker | 7 comments »

Recently i picked up three hand planes for 40 bucks at a local swap meet , one being the stanley defiance jack plane i showed earlier , also in the bunch were a stanley 102 and a rapier 400 smooth plane. My Uncle noticed my interest in wood and well… i ended up bringing home one of my grandpas (deceased since 2004) tool boxes full of tools that hadnt been used since they were put down by him. In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...

A chinese edge plane

70 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

While watching a video series about China Hand Tool Wood working, saw a plane the fellow was making. “Should only take ten minutes or so to make, very simple..” Yeah, RIGHT. Took me about six HOURS! Anyway, I got out a piece of white oak stock, and tried out some cuts Ok, THAT didn’t go so well. That dummy can saw worth a … Front of the opening was way too big. Plan B. Had a second piece of white oak. Saw guy was a little bit better. Used ...

Dungeon Shop Rehab Center: Stanley Plane

71 days ago by bandit571 | 4 comments »

A very Rusty & Crusty plane showed up today. Under all that gunk is a Stanley T19, #5-1/2 jack plane. Yeah, right. A few more looks before the trip downstairs Iron and lever cap need a bit of clean up The handles are solid, no cracks. Paint might need a touch up, maybe. Hauled all the parts down to the shop. Took the plane apart. I managed to get every bolt out, but one. That little one holding the clip on the back of the frog. Frozen tight. Oh, well, it ca...

Stanley no. 1

80 days ago by skidooraceing | 15 comments »

I had found a hand plane at a garage sale and bought it for $5 without really knowing what kind of plane it was. It is a small plane around 6 inches long. The plane is missing the chip breaker and lever cap. When I got it home I took some rust off the blade it had the Stanley logo and a patent date of 1892. I looked up online about it and believe its a Stanley no. 1. Im wondering if anyone knows much about Stanley no. 1’s and what the price of a none complete no. 1 would be?

DIY HAND PLANES #1: shoulder plane based on Mafe and Div info

80 days ago by cyclops4069 | 2 comments »

Having now made my first hand plane, I was eager to try something a little more challenging. Something about the shape and delicacy of the components that made up a shoulder plane (and in particular the small shoulder planes that Mafe had been playing with in one of his Blog builds, also based on Div’s beautiful shoulder plane that he gifted to Mafe)....I think I was just hypnotised by the beauty of both of these planes and needed to make one. Firstly I decided on the style and the d...

Restoring Woodworking Hand Tools #1: How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tools

85 days ago by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’ve tried almost every method to remove rust from metal parts! In the above VIDEO I show my favorite method for removing rust from metal parts – specifically traditional woodworking hand tool parts – but it’ll work for most other metal parts, like auto parts. Click here to read the original blog post with links. But first let me tell you about the other methods that haven’t worked very well for me: -Electrolisys with a car batt...
