View on YouTube This week I continued to focus on the back of the chair. I spent time finessing the crestrails shape. After that, I focused on the center back slat. Milled up ebony bars and inlayed them into the center back slat.

Making Plane Blades #1: Fabrication and Heat Treatment

07-06-2015 10:40 PM by bobasaurus | 14 comments »

For the “Shop Made Tool Swap - 2015: Hand Planes and Spokeshaves”, I decided to make two planes (one to keep, one to swap) including the blades. I started with a 1/8” thick 2.5” wide precision ground flat bar of A2 tool steel that I happened to have on hand. After some requests for more information, I decided to start this tutorial blog for making them. You can buy tool steel pretty cheap from Enco: O1: http://www.use-enco.com/CGI/INSRAR?PMSECT=0000000793A2: ht...

Venturing into Parts Unknown - Hand Tool/Plane Storage #1: It starts with a need and an idea

07-06-2015 09:48 PM by rhybeka | 3 comments »

I’ve been told I need to find a home other than my kitchen table for my planes that have taken up residence.I’ve been hesitant to move them to the shop – mainly because my shop is like most – no a/c or heat with a decent amount of humidity. I decided as my first foray into the world of joinery and hand tools I’d build a quasi portable till. I’m no expert in Sketchup and I’m sure there’s a few mistakes that I haven’t discovered yet, but her...

07-06-2015 05:50 PM by Matthew Morris | 0 comments »

View on YouTube When you are using hand tools like a chisel or a plane, I like to sharpen the blade often. I will even sharpen multiples times during a day if I am using that tool a lot. After talking about this, I show you how I freehand sharpen a spokeshave blade.

Maple/oak project/desk #6: Lid restart,meeting angles...didn't

07-04-2015 04:44 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...

Re-furbish a Stanley No. 28

06-30-2015 10:20 PM by bandit571 | 8 comments »

Ok, picked two of these long planes for a five spot at a local auction And got them to the Rehab Center when I got home. First thing was to tear them down to a pile of parts. Screws and bolts were wire brushed on the drill press. Brass was shined up as well. Irons were cleaned up, and sharpened, chipbreakers were cleaned up and tuned to match the irons. Which left the wood bodieds to deal with. Set each up in the leg vise on the bench. A No.14 Jack plane to not only clea...

Maple/oak project/desk #3: Dovetails, rebates, and grooviness, oh my...

06-29-2015 08:13 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, maybe today will go a bit better than the last one? Had an Auction to go to Saturday, and refurbbed a couple items I picked up at it. Bench is cleared off, time to do a few dovetails? When last seen, i had these sawn. I picked up a candle the other day, waxed the saw blade, and made a couple more cuts. Then the chisels took over. That chisel came from the set I picked up at Aldis. It is about 5/16-3/8” wide. I’m banging through curly Maple with this chisel....

Maple/oak project/desk #1: Part 1, needed to mill a few boards

06-24-2015 09:56 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Came home with a nice stack of fancy hardwood planks. Thanks to the people that got them for me. Let them sit around in the Dungeon Shop for awhile, until I got tired of not being able to use my bench. Starting to cut down a candidate for a slant top….whatever.Was a bit curly grain, and a few knots. Worked it flatter with a small jointer/fore plane That big old No. 6c was a bit too long, so a Millers Falls Junior Jack took over. was having a bit of trouble with the grain ...
