Revonoc 28" Restoration

06-07-2015 07:51 PM by Mambrax | 3 comments »

Over view of a Revonoc 28” Restoration. Got it a rummage sale for $20. probably paid to much, but i never saw a other one like that before.So step 1 : removing all part. Be-ward of dead bugs !!! As seen it was in rough shape. Most all those get wrap all possible way, which make them unusable. It’s very important to square them out before any think. Now a plane that size is almost impossible to sand for the normal man like me. The only way is that I personally can u...

Gamble House Rocking Chair #1: From Rough Wood to Looking Like a Rocker

06-03-2015 06:15 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

For years I’ve wanted to build the Gamble House Living Room’s Rocking Chair. I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Gamble House and get an up-close-and-personal view of the rocker as part of my research. Since the beginning of this year I’ve been working on the sketchup plans and testing out various templates to see if the shapes I’ve come up with are in proportion and true to the original chair. I start this project in mid May and created a Playlist of all ...

Beginner Plane Restoration #1: Why I decided to do this, and my initial impressions of the plane

05-28-2015 06:11 AM by bbasiaga | 6 comments »

I recently came up with a project idea that will benefit from the use of a hand plane. Unfortunately, I don’t have one! After hours of research on old threads here, and soliciting some great feedback on a thread of my own, I had all but decided to buy a Veritas #3 low angle smoother. Then, my wife’s job situation became quite unstable. While we are working that out, I thought I could spend a small amount of money and give a restoration a try. I have the time (projects on ho...

The Bonfire Chair build blog

05-23-2015 09:01 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 13 comments »

This is the blog describing how i made this chair. For a long time I have had this corner of my garden that have a place for a bonfire. We use it a lot and the favorite is making pancakes using a pan on a long stick. My son loves it! But the place itself could use some help. Especially the chairs are a bit annoying. I keep them because they were a gift from a friend and have a fun story to them (they are made by the inmates of a local prison that houses long term prisoners): The ...

building a bench and stuff #3: Building the end vise for ma bench

05-19-2015 04:33 AM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

I needed an end vise for ma bench. So I built one. White oak was the hardest wood I had on hand in a useable quantity. I’ll try to keep it short. Didn’t have a large enough piece for the chop(?) but I had 2 that I really liked. So I joined them with a sliding dovetail. Made with table saw, chisel and a home made router plane (the block of oak with the Allen wrench sticking out). I cut rabbets into the bottom guide rails simply because I bought a new to me plow plane. It ...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 6 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

scraper??

05-09-2015 03:09 AM by Skip Mathews | 3 comments »

I found this gnarly old tool when I bought a box of antique planes online.I am not sure if this is a known tool or someone’s creation.I works great as a scraper. I just run a file across the edge to form a burr and it creates some pretty good shavings.(the shavings in the picture are not from the scraper :)You tap on the wedge at the back end and the other end clamps down on the blade.I have been running is side to side and like it better than a pull scraper.

Lonnie Bird's School #3: Making & Fitting a Drawer

05-01-2015 03:38 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

Day Four of class was spent making the drawer. I started with some more practice but eventually we were told Practice was over and it is time for the real thing. First up is to cut the pin sockets. Sharp, crisp corners are the goal. I was pleased with mine. The drawer back was roughed out to save some time, here’s what I started with. Next I laid out my drawer parts and labeled each matching joint. No way did I want to miscut one of these. I mentioned last time what a dif...
