Pine Pantry Cupboard #8: One door done..

06-23-2017 12:36 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

And one to go. Last weekend, I was away from the shop for a while. Had some tools to rehab. I went and got a few supplies for this Pantry Project. Turned out I needed a couple more items, more on that later. Ok, plan was to rip one of the 1×10s right down the middle. Not enough room in the shop….6’ board…cut it down to 5’1”.....much better. Bandsaw to do the rip. Needed to cut another 1×10 to that 61” length. Joint an edge, appl...

Stanley 51/52 Shooting Plane #2: Progress on the clean up

06-20-2017 05:22 AM by Pjonesy | 6 comments »

In between other things I have been cleaning this piece of treasure very carefully so as not to destroy the originality of the item. Cleaning the rust off and still leaving the original machine marks is quite time consuming. The following pictures show progress so far. I still need to clean up wing nuts and other small parts, probably use electrolysis to do this. to the parts that have no existing finishes like nickel or zinc. According to records I have checked the plane was manufactured bet...

Venturing into Parts Unknown - Hand Tool/Plane Storage #4: Plane till awaits finish - dutch tool chest in process

06-15-2017 02:14 AM by rhybeka | 11 comments »

so for those of you following along on this journey of mine that seriously resembles one of Billy’s walks from the Family Circus cartoons, the plane till is working fabulously and is mostly complete. I still need to mount a small ledge for my router plane, and figure out how to mount my Stanley 78 up there and voila! I may also turn half of the bottom ledge into a drawer space to hold fences and such but for now – it’s doing what I need it to do. Meanwhile, a friend of mi...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #4: Top installed

05-30-2017 02:51 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Just a quick catch-up…Got the blank for the top out of the clamps. Laid it up on top of the case. Marked how much to trim off. Set up the jig on the bandsaw, and cut for width. Framing square to mark the ends square, bandsaw to trim. Cleared a BIG spot on the bench,, And used the Jumbo Jack to flatten both faces. Block plane for the end grain, and make a slight bevel to the edges. Took a quarter out of my pocket, and laid out a curve on the front two corners.. Then u...

Make a Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 2

05-30-2017 12:03 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

Hello everyone! In this second part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench, I share with you the gluing of the parts, the beveling of dog holes using a gouge, the shaped of the fixing lugs, the placement of the threaded rods, and the built of the front jaw. Beveling of dog holes using a gouge, instead a power router or other method, it’s really simple and quick.As all in wood, you must understand the grain direction, and think that the gouge will be in four basic position...

L-Shaped Desk #4: The fire, it burrrrrns!

05-29-2017 08:09 PM by SauceMan | 1 comment »

I want to keep this quick because it’s almost 1pm and I haven’t started yet. I got a new blade and a new belt to put into my table saw, but I really want to get working on my desk. Yesterday was a pretty productive day. I feel like every time I take 8 quarter steps forward, I take 4 quarter steps back. (little woodworking joke for you guys, you can thank me later). Last weekend I got this Diablo blade for my new table saw and spent a fair amount of time trying to square m...

Sauce's adventures in woodworking #2: The plane! The plane!

05-29-2017 07:36 PM by SauceMan | 3 comments »

I’ll keep this short and sweet. When people say brand new planes need a lot of work, they mean it. For me, I had a small plane and bought a bigger (#4) one recently. The small one had suddenly “clicked” and started working for me. The #4 didn’t work no matter how I adjusted the blades. I thought I went too cheap and bought junk. Turns out, I had a servicable plane, just needed to show it some love. First, put the bevel of the iron (the iron is the blade) i...

Stanley 51/52 Shooting Plane #1: I am now the proud owner of this rare plane

05-28-2017 02:15 AM by Pjonesy | 8 comments »

I have just acquired this quite rare Stanley 51/52 Shooting Plane in very original if a little rusty condition.It is my intention to clean the plane up to make it usable again, so I can use it in my model making. I really like using hand tools as much as possible when making models, I think it gives me much greater control and accuracy. Does anyone know where I can get an original hold down bracket with wing nut, washer and cup head bolt. I have acquired a non original bracket but an o...

Pine Pantry Cupboard #2: Webframes....

05-24-2017 07:33 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok, part 2. Those 1xs with the sawn edges, they were smoothed out and jointed this morning….made a bit of a mess on the floor.. Wanted to get the parts as close to matching each other as i could. Laid out for some tenons to be cut on the ends of the short parts.. Again, I wanted all of these to match each other. Set up a jig on the bandsaw, and then reset for the rest of the cuts. That “thing” sitting beside the tenons? Is a mortise jig I use. Attached t...
