Valentine’s Day early morning tool picking. Amazing what a dozen roses can do for a tool picking Saturday. Okay, she would have gotten the roses anyway, but I’m sure it didn’t hurt. Here is this morning’s grab.

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #1: Preparing for the build

02-11-2015 02:07 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Like many of us I have looked at all of those pictures of other people’s roubo workbenches with a jealous eye for quite some time. The ones built with Benchcrafted hardware just seemed to be top notch in quality, and they look like woodworker candy. I’ve had this build on my to-do list since 2011 because I don’t have a woodworking bench with woodworking vises or anything to hold my work down. I’m forced to use my old Unisaw as a bench and the best I can do is use a cla...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #7: Inlay, Inlay and More Inlay

02-08-2015 05:36 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

I start out by creating a template for the oval fan medallions that will be recessed into the front of the leg. I then work on the recesses for the banding that will go on the rails. The banding on the legs at the top must match the rails exactly, and I show how I accomplish this. Then it’s cutting for the banding on the legs, along with additional stringing that will be on the front of the legs. I wrap it all up by gluing all the banding and string inlay into the legs and the rails. As al...

My Journey into a Hand Tool Wonderland. #1: Getting into tools.

02-07-2015 12:18 AM by Luke | 0 comments »

When I got started into woodworking, it was all about doing projects around the house. Every project I completed got me a new (power) tool. Its how I built my shop. I started with a circular saw and a router I got for my birthday. I built a bookshelf, got a drill. I built a built in entertainment center and got a cast iron table saw and an antique haunted jointer. My neighbor asked me to build his entertainment center and he bought me a new lighter drill and I got a 12” lunc...

Small workbench based on shipbuilt's Short Block V8 (Workbench Challange) #1: Concept and leg assembly

02-06-2015 05:57 AM by brianb6603 | 3 comments »

ConceptI have been needing a proper workbench for a while. The top of my table saw and fold up extension have been the only spot to use. I would love to have a large proper workbench but my shop is just too small for a full size bench. I have been looking at benches in Lumberjocks and marking some for reference. shipwright had come up with some excellent ideas. His concept for the Short Block V8 is a low cost way for a beginner to get a strong, stable small workbench using tools that many b...

No. 4 Smoother Restoration, with Emphasis on Repairing a Chipped Knob

02-02-2015 02:23 PM by Bugnurd | 7 comments »

Aloha! I’d like to share with the world my restoration of a Stanley No. 4 smoothing plane. I picked up this plane last spring off C-list. Here's a post from when I got it if you are interested in seeing more “before” photos. It seems to be a type 13 example, which dates the plane between 1925-1928. Rust was pretty much only surficial, and the original jappaning was about 95% intact. Here’s what she looked like as found: Cleaning up the plane was pretty str...

Restoring Handplane Totes

02-01-2015 12:16 AM by poopiekat | 40 comments »

There’s lots of planes in my workshop that need a refurbished tote to make them usable. They are all projects for a later date, I keep telling myself. This is a typical tote, found on a transitional #27 on one of my hunting trips: Here’s what I do: To fix the broken horn, I first bandsaw off the stub, leaving as flat a surface as possible. Then, after confirming a nice flat surface, I select a little block of wood of similar grain, and glue it on. I keep exotic lit...

Small Secretary With Tambour Door #5: Architectural Details and Inlaid Top

01-25-2015 05:49 AM by Guy Dunlap | 4 comments »

First I work on making the “pillars” for the architectural details in the front of the hutch. Then I carve the “foundations” for the pillars with a chisel. I cut the top to size, and using the router table, I form the decorative edge. Again, I use a router to cut the groove for the inlay, glue the inlay in, flush them to the surface as with the drawers and attach the top. I also show how I fix a pretty big mistake when I was cutting the inlay. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...
