Life as an Amateur Woodworker #32: Christmas Present to myself!

12-01-2014 10:35 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

Flea Market Finds

11-30-2014 07:40 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

Super happy with today’s goodies: 1. A Marples knife blade marking gauge. $7 2. Drawknife of unknown origin. $5 3. H. Wells moving filletster plane. $10 Head over heals about the plane. I’ve been scouring eBay and other sources for one just like this. Overall it’s in really good shape. Took it apart, cleaned it up and oiled the depth stop screw. I’ll need to sharpen the blade later. It’s got a small crack in the fence, which I just glued up and sh...

My Workbench #1: Initial "Finished" Product

11-20-2014 08:25 PM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 9 comments »

I am a woodworker, an engineer, a maker, and a tinkerer. I built myself a workbench that height adjustable and completely solid that will last for generations. The full project description is here. But if your like me, you will find that a project, though completed, is never really done. I started this blog to document my starting point for any modifications and upgrades I do to the bench. See a video of the project by clicking here if you don't have flash or watch below:

Reshaping a Stanley Sweetheart #62 Tote

11-04-2014 05:44 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

Couple bargain planes rehabbed

10-30-2014 02:12 AM by MNclone | 1 comment »

Finished up a couple more planes. The first has become probably my favorite user already. This is a type 13 Stanley 5 1/2 that was purchased at a garage sale for $2. The original sweetheart iron was getting pretty short and the top is bent pretty good. I picked up a #8 that someone outfitted with a 2 3/8” iron from Erik Anton Berg. I cleaned that up and put it in the 5 1/2. At some point I will probably try straightening the original iron out, but haven’t figured out exactly...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #5: Tool cabinet #5:

10-19-2014 02:55 AM by exelectrician | 9 comments »

Put on two coats of Deft semigloss, then made drawer pulls and door handles from recycled ebony piano keys, added an interior baltic birch panel and the most important thing, I got The cabinet mounted on the wall. The moulded edge was masked off and two coats of stain applied prior to gluing the door frame, now that the surrounding parts are finished, the color difference is hardly noticeable, my experiment worked kinda, oh well…Still have a load of decisions to make to figure ou...

NOT your average Screen Door: Installed!

10-18-2014 05:29 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, late last night, went out and bought two packs of sandpaper, 60 grit & 100 grit. Gave the pine a good sanding all the way around, with both grits in a Palm sander. Dusted the now smooth mess off. Gave both faces of the door a good thick coat of Kilz Exterior Primer, and let it set overnight. Somehow, I managed to get paint on 9 out of 10 fingers, AND the door, and not one other thing in the entire shop! SKILL! Ok, this morning, brought the door up out of the Dungeon...

NOT your average Screen Door: Assembly time

10-17-2014 06:40 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

FINALLY! First, needed some rebates for the screen’s frame to sit in. Don’t have a wide enough bit for the router, BUT, I do happen to have a couple planes that seem to work nicely This one is a Traditional Chinese Edge Plane I build awhile ago. Set the fence for 1/2” and push it along until it is almost all the way down to …3/16” deep. Then go over it with an Iron plane, since it does have a depth stop Hmmm, Noodles, anyone? Ok, rebates all lo...
