Hand Plane Restoration #1: Stanley No4

01-12-2018 03:59 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

In the old days in the UK a carpenter’s tools used to passed on via a trade scheme to a young apprentice just starting out. Sadly this sort of thing seems to have gone in this day and age of throw away.I found this old hand plane in an old wares store in Wauchope in poor condition and restored it for my nephew who is starting out in the trade. It’s a beauty and has miles of shavings left in it!It has a new Hock blade and chip breaker and works a treat.

A Stepback Cupboard build #7: Door is done....

01-11-2018 02:03 AM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, I did get a panel glued up this week.. And let it sit a day…..today, it came out of the clamps. Marked for final width, and a rip cut made on the bandsaw. Then face planed to remove some high spots.. Along with jointing the sawn edge. Width was now set, length was about as close as I could get it. Marked a line along one end, to do a bevel across the grain….. Panel raising. This panel is a bit on the thick side. (more on that in a bit) Paul Selle...

Roubo-inspired Workbench ... with construction lumber. #2: The Second Slab

01-09-2018 04:48 PM by kr580 | 2 comments »

The Second Slab Here’s the second batch of boards squared up. I was able to fix the jointer knives over Christmas time so these are all dead square now. Oh, how much easier everything was. Second slab all glued up. I maybe got a little excited with the glue. I didn’t have a second set of hands for this one so I smothered it a bit to make up for lost time. Oops. With the boards now straight and square I didn’t have to hock off 3/32” from the whole thing like be...

A Stepback Cupboard build #6: Drawer fitted, door started

01-09-2018 01:33 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, got the drawer fine tuned, once it came out of the clamps.. Dovetails now look a bit better…..Installed two strips of scrap onto the runners in the case, where the drawer will slide. Added a pair of shiny knobs…. So I can pull the drawer back out. Knob details? Nothing real fancy.. Drawer was sticking a bit…easy fix. I let the case sit over night, to let the glue holding the guides strip in place cure. Pulled the drawer out, and ran a #4 plane along t...

Roubo-inspired Workbench ... with construction lumber. #1: The First Slab

01-08-2018 01:48 PM by kr580 | 4 comments »

Hello. First project here. Long time lurker, long time LJ enjoyer, woodworking noob. I want a Roubo-inspired workbench. (I’m yet another Schwarz sheep I guess.) I can’t afford a legit Roubo workbench with decent wood so I chose to make it out of 2×4 kiln-dried Douglas Fir studs milled up to (hopefully) a good standard. Here goes nothing! I apologize for the crappy pictures, they’ve been an afterthought so far. The Plan Here’s my sketchup design. It will b...

A Stepback Cupboard build #5: A drawer building day

01-07-2018 12:01 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Well, I got the clamps off, and things laid out… Drawer front fits…I removed the rest of the clamps, and moved the case so I could have a bit more elbow room… Hauled the Pine 1×6 to the shop. Set up to cut a pair of drawer sides. A Disston D-7, 10ppi crosscut. That green can was also needed, today One end was a tad off, used the mitre box to trim it down to match the first one. You would think, that both parts coming from the same board, would be the s...

A Stepback Cupboard build #4: Face frame installed, and other mishaps

01-06-2018 02:13 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, tried to fit the face frame to the front of the case…..wasn’t going to fit….Frame was a hair narrower than the case, and threw the alignment stuff off. Decided to expand the grooves outward a hair, both of them. had to reset the cutter on the Stanley #45,....took out the #12 cutter, and replaced it with the #13… That was all I was going to do..last night…one thing lead to another…tried different ways to hold the frame still, long enough to use th...

A Stepback Cupboard build #3: A face frame gets built

01-04-2018 10:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok. I need to build a “face frame” to cover the front edges of the case..ripped down another plank of Ash Bandsaw to rip a couple stiles, about 1-1/2” wide. Jointer plane to remove saw marks, and make the two match each other. Needed three rails.. Mitersaw to cut those to length….ganged all three up.. Shorter boards = shorter planes. Then I needed tenons on both ends of these three.. Didn’t like these wide tenons, so they were trimmed down a...

A Stepback Cupboard build #1: A start up..

01-04-2018 09:47 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Ok, been quite busy lately, Holidays, and such. Spent a bit of cash to get about 32bf of Ash, from a friend of mine.. Hauled a few of the 4/4×6” planks to the shop….needed to cut a couple to length, joint the edges, and make a couple panels Hmmm, thought these were flat sawn..until I found the end grain. Quarter sawn Ash.. Used this old saw, to cut a few blanks to length.. Jointed the edges, and checked for any gaps.. Got one side into the clamps̷...
