Antique Tool Box #5: Wooden Bullnose Moulding Plane?

03-13-2018 07:21 AM by CaptainKlutz | 0 comments »

Here is next plane: Bullnose moulding plane (again did I spell that right?) :) This one has 2 curved plane irons that cut both side of a large 1/5”+ bull nose profile. There is some rust on irons but when I first looked at the plane, there were wood chips stuck between body and irons, so I it appears to have been used. The trailing edge mark says “EPC” again. Not sure if this is maker’s mark or owners mark? Appreciate any information you can share to educate ...

Antique Tool Box #4: Skew Plane with side nicker?

03-13-2018 07:02 AM by CaptainKlutz | 0 comments »

Here is plane #3 from antique chest:I grabbed this one next and it has 2 nickers embedded on sides of body and iron is skewed. The body also has a nice tapered chip exit that appears to help push chips out to one side. Even the wooden iron wedge has matching curve shape on it. :) Does not appeared to be heavily used, as the iron seems to have machined edge in it, and not been sharpened very often.This plane has “J. Chaney” makers mark and “EPC” on front end ...

Antique Tool Box #2: Ohio Tool Wood Plane

03-13-2018 06:26 AM by CaptainKlutz | 0 comments »

Here is 1st plane I captured pictures of in the tool chest: It has Ohio Tool Company, Columbuis Ohio imprint on very thick plane iron.The trailing end has been hit with hammer and the makers mark is gone, so I did not post a picture of it.The cap iron screw is mangled, and due length appears to be replacement. The wedge for retaining the iron looks homemade, so am curious if it is original? I can grab some more images or record dimensions if anyone needs them to help me und...

Antique Tool Box #1: Is this a joiner's Tool Box?

03-13-2018 05:52 AM by CaptainKlutz | 12 comments »

#1 Dislike blogs. This is a documentary.This series of posts was created to document a recent estate find and hopefully gather some information from the antique tool collectors that troll LJ for entertainment. Did not want to pollute the HPOYD thread and potentially lose information. Back story: I have been working wood for 40 years as a hobby. As I become more senile and slow down from my impetuous youth, have learned I like the “FEEL” of working wood and started using hand...

Small Shop Adventures #13: Hand Planing Trim Boards.

03-13-2018 01:55 AM by BrockF | 1 comment »

For the ceiling trim in my parents place I am going with 1×4 boards with a 1/2 inch square strip along the upper edge, all painted white. I am using poplar because it paints great and is such a pleasure to work with. One of the challenges I face is that the ceilings have a few spots where they are not exactly flat, either because of time or because of muddling, paint, repairs or both. This would be essentially invisible except when you try to put a trim board up. I can’t do...

Stepback Cupboard in Pine #12: Build-a-drawer, 101

03-11-2018 08:41 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

two days to build one drawer? I am getting slow in my old age… Anyway, this may be a bit long, better get settled in…. Cut this to size..goal being to build a drawer around it. Had a couple “left-overs” for the sides, they needed to match in width and length…Length was at the bandsaw, later the mitre box. width was the easy part. Then “shot” the end grain straight..Set the sides aside for a bit. Corner joints will be through dovetails&...

Worked in two separate sessions yesterday….had a morning “shift”, a trip to get a CT Scan on the head, then when we got back home, an evening shift….Morning stuff:Top was removed from the clamps, set aside for a while. Ripped a few 1×1s from the leftovers…needed to build out the drawer runners, for the drawer to slide on….also needed guides to keep the drawer centered in the opening… A bead of glue and a screw. Both are attached to the webf...

Ok, got the 1×8 x 8’ plank to the shop, somehow….had the bench cleared off, and ready to do a bit of work… Saw was needed to make a few cuts….needed three pieces 27” long…lay out a cut line.. Making sure the line was hanging over the end far enough to miss the bench vise…. Was trying NOT to include this into one of the pieces.. But, to get rid of this ugly thing, I had to use it’s little brother.. We have ways…..the fir...
