A secret dovetail?

111 days ago by bandit571 | 3 comments »

been trying my hand at a few of those “Full Blind Dovetails” aka miter, or secret dovetails. From the outside, they look like a regular mitered joint. But, open the joint up, and a few dovetails appear. Anyway, did a little research, watch a bit of Roy Underhill, and made a sketch or two. Down in the Dungeon Shop, I had a few cut-offs of walnut 1×4s. Not very long ones, but something to putter around on. A bit of plane work to get them all about the same w...

Workbench #4: The Finale

113 days ago by john2005 | 24 comments »

I will mostly post pics in this one. By now, if you have followed at all you have gathered that I suck at blogging. A writer I will never be. Some technical data. Final dimensions are 81 1/2” long, 27 1/4” wide and 35 1/5” tall. Species are Walnut and Birch. Pulled off the double through tenons, albeit not perfectly. Nothing a few little wedges couldn’t fix. I feel the bench to be a good reflection of me. A little unusual, not too crazy, has some flaws, functi...

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #2: Phase I - Milling the Hard Maple

116 days ago by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

I used hard maple for the face frames, drawer fronts, doors and drawers.It all started like this I used a track saw to rip a clean edge on every board. That worked great. I also ran them across the jointer at some point during the milling. Looks a lot better after a few passes through the planer And a few passes through the drum sander. Then I cut the face frame pieces. Ready to start building the face frames and rough cut the remaining pieces for the rails and stiles for ...

Holly's Jasper #3: Holly's Jasper #3

117 days ago by Michael Anthony Zelonis | 1 comment »

Started working on the 3, 40 yr. old walnut slabs for the blank. Machine planned the patina off the surfaces to find some great figure….. Hand planning the surfaces to be glued after lining them up so as to avoid what little checking there was (small chip missing from the middle piece will not affect the blank). Note; the plane is a pre WWII Stanley Bailey No. 6 I found on Ebay in almost new condition. After some clean up and tuning she is an awesome tool!

Low budget + low skill = sharp chisels

118 days ago by Lukas | 0 comments »

There is no discussion about the fact that sharp tools are a must in woodworking but when it comes to the methods of sharpening or the quality of tools necessary, the fight is on. Be it sharpening by hand or with a sharpening station that raises the value of your house by 20%, a newcomer in tool sharpening can easily get confused. I too worried for a long time that without serious investment in both extreme high quality tools and the corresponding sharpening implements I would be doomed to us...

Plane Restoration #3: Looking Sharp

119 days ago by bit101 | 2 comments »

Decided to go with the scary sharp method. Got some high grade wet/dry sandpaper and an angle jig. Started with 80 grit and worked on that for quite a long time. Got the main bevel down to a single plane and pretty much squared it up as well. The corners were worn down more than the center, so it’s not perfectly square still, still got a bit of a curve, I guess like a jack plane? But when I had it “good enough” I progressed up through 120, 320, 400, 600, 1000, 1500 and 20...

Plane Restoration #1: Assessment and Cleanup

122 days ago by bit101 | 4 comments »

Well, I’ve been wanting to try and get into more hand tools. A plane is a good start. After watching Rob Cosman’s Plane Revival and some of Frank Klausz’s stuff, I picked up an old Stanley #4 on eBay for $20. It arrived today. Overall, I think it’s in pretty good shape. Some rust on the sides and bottom, but no serious pitting. So, I took it all apart. The frog, inner body and lever cap are almost pristine. Just needed a little wiping down. Everything...

Mister Victor Stanley's rehab

125 days ago by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Day two: Spent most of it working on the iron. Did get the base cleaned up, and about as flat as it NEEDS to be. Mainly around the mouth opening, and the ends. Cleaned out all the dirt on the inside, as well. Frog was waiting to go on. I wiped all the threads with some 3in1 oil, ran the bolts and the adjuster wheel up and down a few times. re-wiped off the excess oil. Installed the frog Note: I tend to sit the edge of the frog inline with the little ramp right at the openi...

Mister Stanley Victor goes into Rehab

125 days ago by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Well, the mail carrier dropped off a box today, all the wat from Florida, no less. Inside a mountain of shredded paper was a handplane Might not be the prettiest gal on the corner, nor something made of bronze. This is a Victor #1104, made by Stanley. The red showing is also on the chipbreaker, as weel as the frog. Another view of this Did have a few spider nests sitting around in it, too. Well, first thing I do when doing a rehab of a plane, is take it all down to just …...
