Giving Stanley a 2nd chance...

1382 days ago by Rick Boyett | 7 comments »

Some of you might have read my review on the Stanley Sweetheart no 9 1/2 block plane. I wasn’t very kind and rightfully so. The plane had great promise but was totally ruined by bad quality control.. But a few days ago I read David Craig’s very positive review of the no 60 1/2 block plane which was downright glowing. I also read a blog entry by Woodworking Magazines editor Christopher Schwartz in which he stated he was in the beginning stages of testing an improved version o...

Hello Friends! I am finally back from Iraq (back to Germany with my family that is) and have started the process of making new Totes and Knobs for my Bailey collection for my #3,#4,#5.#6, and #7.

Tomorrow I will turn the front Knobs and hopefu...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #8: Finally it is FINISHED!

1394 days ago by RonPeters | 8 comments »

Ok, I’ve been working on this for about 18 months. A little here and a little there… a piece at a time. It’s finally finished and now I can move on to making instruments. I never built a bench, or anything else – unless you consider that bowl I turned in wood shop 45 years ago? – so there was some learning curve involved. I never: made box joints or drawers, glued up a top, made and installed mortise & tenon’s, installed a vice – let alone two ...

Making Octagonal Stock from Square Stock

1397 days ago by swirt | 16 comments »

Many of the tips I have read regarding starting to round a spindle on a lathe recommend starting with octagonal stock. Many of the tool handles on tools I like, have octagonal handles. So I thought I would define the simplest method I have found for making octagonal stock from square stock. Be sure you have square to begin with.Find the center of the square. Take the length from corner to center and transfer it to the side face. Set your marking gauge to that length and...

a tool question

1398 days ago by BigTiny | 5 comments »

Greetings all. A local buy/sell site has an ad for a ‘Stanley wood tool, complete and in good working condition.” The accompanying pictures show what looks like a plow plane of sorts, with the Stanley name embossed on it and the number 45 on one of the pieces, Anyone know what this might be and what it is worth? I’m tempted, but know absolutely nothing about it and don’t want to over bid on it, no matter how much I love old tools.

Beginning of Toy Kitchen (Photo's Repaired) #1: The Beginning

1399 days ago by spunwood | 2 comments »

My mom and dad wanted to get our daughter Beatrice a kitchen set, and I quickly suggested that we build one instead. Stephanie was also excited at the possibility of displaying it and taking orders at the craft fair coming up in October. So we began by looking up wood toy kitchens on google and chose the features and style that we liked. We shopped at Lowes for all the pine lumber. I would have liked to have used grooves and dado’s for joinery, but in the spirit of keepin...

Bedroom Set #2: Side panels allmost ready for assembly

1401 days ago by sandhill | 20 comments »

I am laying out the legs now to accept the panels and railsThis is where the center stile will fit into the top and bottom rail.The tenons are only 1/4” and the panels will float in the rails and stiles. The strength that holds the sides together will be from the rails, the top and bottom shelf which will be 3/8” X 1 1/4” tenons pined from the legs.
