Hello Readers! Well my daughter is 6 months old now, and she found the staircase this week…(no worries, we stopped her advancement up them) So I will be building a set of upper and lower staircase gates for her protection against nasty spills. I put together this mockup for the design. As usual this will be made from pallet wood and will be featured on my Pallet Craft blog. But alas! I acquired a block plane! And I am very happy with how it changes the way the wood looks...
The other day my dad and I were laying some Swift-lok flooring in my house and we came to a joint that had significantly raised on one side, it looked like the crappy chip board sub floor had expanded on the edge prior to being laid down and nailed into place. after sinking the nails we sanded a bit and decided that we would need to do something else as I do not own a belt sander (I know, I should own a belt sander) and the joint was still badly raised. i went down to my garage shop and scann...
The yellow just won’t work with rosewood. As JC suggested the epoxy should be used. I should know better. It must be old age. I have to learn my lesson more than once. The yellow glue didn’t held up to the test at all. After letting the tote to sit and dry for couple days. It snaps off with easy. The glue really never set. It was still soft. I had to start over. I ran hot water over glue spot and scrubbed with a tooth brush until all the visible glue are gone. This time I used epo...

Hello again everyone I would like to ask another question on here since all the previous ones I have asked were answered and now I understand what I was doing wrong or what the case was. I am currently gathering materials needed to build a TableSaw Workstation that can be seen in the Shopnotes issue #89 The question for this series is what are some of your ways of cutting down large sheets of plywood or MDF and getting them squared up?? “Using a Benchtop size Table saw” I D...
A dry run was performed first. Evidently, the original threaded rod that came with the plane is not very straight. The tote will rock back and forth as the threaded rod is being tightened. I can see how such rod can put a lot of stress on the tote and contribute to the breakage. The plane’s original rod will not do. Fortunately, I have another one on hand. Though it is not perfect either but the rocking motion was drastically reduced. After the dry run I had to move my projec...
I love car boot sales and junk shops find some great deals, last weekend I picked up a few nice tenon saws a no 7 Record jointer, no 4 1/2 stanley (needs alot of work, broken tote and poor weld to side) and a 1 1/4 paring chisels. anyone else picked up anything decent. anyone know anything about the saw makers.
For the picture heavy version, please click here! Today was all about the grind. Just grit your teeth and push through the burning in your arms and hands. To get going, though I had just had to settle my differences with the onery plane (it caused me to stop prematurely yesterday). I took my time and examined the thing to see what was amiss, because it wasn’t acting like this when I was planing the individual planks for the top a few weeks ago. Then I noticed it—-the frog...
Hello LJ Buddies, Here is my most recent progress. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking. I previously milled the grove on the underside of the bench. I cut a rabet 3/4” in from the front and glued on a 3/4” tenon. This was cut by hand. First had to perfect the fit. Laid out the design with a wax pencil. Bandsawed the curve then cleaned up with a spokeshave. After drilling the holes and cleaned the Jatoba with Acetone and glued on the tenon an...
Okay, this is yet another update on the James Kellogg Jack Plane restoration. This time I’m making the tote. One of my concerns is that the tote may break if any side pressure is applied. I’m kicking around the idea of adding a drilling a hole through the handle and reinforcing it with a dowel. What do you think? Ayway, here is what I have so far; The pattern The rough shape Fitted to the plane Just a closer look Thanks for looking.
