Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn’t have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new toy! Second, I’m going to throw out the disclaimer that this was by no means a 100% exhaustive test. We did not do things like study edge retention, sharpening, and haven’t done any prolonged use/testing of the V...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #3: Stanley 45 time...

09-09-2017 01:53 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, I have the Stanley 45 all set up….need to mill a few tongues on the end pieces.. Called a “Match” cutter, cuts a 3/16” wide tongue, for a tongue and groove joint… Fence sits below the cutter. As this were designed to mill up to 4/4 stock, a 3/4” thick piece will have a bit of overhang. I raised the depth stop up, out of the way, as the cutter has it’s own. I used this set up, to hold the end pieces still, long enough to mill the edg...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #2: Out of the clamps..

09-08-2017 04:20 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, where was I? Got the two sides out of the clamps.. Side One.. Was trying to see IF I like the “flat” panel look….not..Side two. I think a Raised Panel look will just have to do… Which leaves the ends to make. Collection of planes were the ones being used. They need smaller stiles….made it a bit rough to use the 45….still had a 1×4 slab…I could make the grooves first, rip the part off the slab, and keep making parts. Too...

Walnut & Cherry, new project #1: Startup

09-08-2017 04:05 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Chest of drawers is done…still have a pile of “leftovers”... A small stack of Cherry….a 1×4 x7’ plank of walnut, and a few other odds & ends…. Decided to resaw the Cherry a bit, so I planed them to about the same thickness and width. Made a jig for the bandsawTo see IF it would help with these tall boards. Meh….Brought the Walnut plank to the shop….made a few crosscuts… It had a section that needed to be…gone&...

Looking at a Challenge Jointer Plane

08-31-2017 05:44 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 2 comments »

The video is here https://youtu.be/iKMRu4B2D_k This plane recently came into my possession and I found it to be petty unique and cool. When I first got it I didn’t realize how rare they are, and if you’re a tool collector you will probably know what I’m talking about. Just did a little video showing the design (neat looking but very poorly thought out), thought some of you folks who are into neat vintage tools would enjoy seeing it. Enjoy!

Shop stuff #103: Photo frame

08-30-2017 02:16 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Perhaps the longest title of any video I have made. It started out as a simple build, but, as is my habit, I complicate it a bit. There is also joinery that I was not completely satisfied with, although it did come out OK for my first attempt at a half lap mitre,so I did a “fix” to it. Sometimes accidents are a benefit. Lots of hand work, which I love doing, but sometimes the machines just have to come out. View on YouTube

Cedar Entertainment Unit #9: Shoji screens coming together finally haha

08-27-2017 09:41 PM by icemanhank | 1 comment »

I still have a bit of work to do on them but I can see the end of the road. I have used all traditional methods to do the joints etc on these and have learnt a hell of a lot about accurate marking and cutting, a long and quite difficult but very enjoyable task!
