Wedding Clock #2: Wedding Clock, The Start & Story

04-22-2011 09:39 PM by kenn | 6 comments »

Sorry Lumberjocks, this was intended to be part one. I’ve got it straight from here on. My eldest daughter is getting married! They got engaged Summer, 2010 and the wedding is planned for Sept. 17, 2011. I told them I’d like to make them something special as a wedding from my wife and me. This is what we all agreed would be a great gift. Never mind that I haven’t done anything in Arts & Crafts Style and that this is my reference, Bruce Johnson’s book on The ...

The stainless-steel CT-17 helicopter block plane, video

04-14-2011 08:44 AM by bubinga | 6 comments »

Inspired by the lightweight, high-strength components found in helicopters, Bridge City Tool Works has made a work of art that planes wood. The stainless-steel CT-17 block plane from Bridge City Tool Works is perhaps the best-looking plane I’ve ever seen. And the beauty is more than skin deep because the new plane doubles as both a conventional and low-angle model. Lock up your credit cards . $860.00 http://www.bridgecitytools.com/ —E J

refurbishing old tools #11: Finishing of the Sandusky plane iron

04-10-2011 01:35 AM by Dave | 17 comments »

Well I spent over 3 hours getting the iron and chip breaker sharp and square and wow. I had left them in this state Friday.The iron had a heavy camber to it. But with some honing. There is a tiny bit of damage to the corners but I had removed a lot of material and the damage will be removed with future sharpening. The first chips on the edge of a 2/4. Not to bad. I had to get a piece of walnut and give it a try.before after I am pleased with the outcome. Not bad for $22....

Ok folks…We all know that Lie-nielsen makes awesome planes and chisels. And I’m in the market for a #7 bench plane. I’m all for quality but… $425 Is it worth it? What do you have on your shelf? Do you use it often? Much appreciated for all your input. Kevin

Easy Shop Table - Planer Table #6: Adding the casters and finishing the project

04-03-2011 07:30 PM by Lockwatcher | 0 comments »

Well, my casters came in from my local Woodwerks store. Just as in previous entries, the casters are the most expensive part of this project. The casters I have been using lock both the wheel and the pivot as well. Without the double lock, when you push on the table, the pivot will spin – and you can move the table – even when locked. Let’s install the casters next: Below: These are the casters (with double lock mechanism) Below: Use the bottom of the caster to...

Walnut and Oak Entrance Shelf #1: Basic construction

03-30-2011 10:39 PM by superstretch | 6 comments »

Its been a while since I’ve posted anything project-related. My time has been consumed with work-work and not wood work. So my wife has this table which she moved into the house when we got married. I can’t stand the thing and it is constantly being bumped, knocked over, and hit into the wall. Its ugly, veneered, and flimsy so I’ve tried everything short of burning it to get it out of there. Finally my wife told me to make something to replace it or get lost. My...

A small tool gloat.

03-26-2011 08:04 PM by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

Today I stopped into an antique store that I’ve driven by several times. I looked around they had some tools (plane a couple levels and a couple squares), but nothing that matched the cash on hand or was worth the price. I was almost out the door, but took a last look in a display case. In it I spotted this little gem A Stanley, stamped H101P on the side. So a happy day for me
