Old dreams

02-09-2011 06:36 PM by toolchap | 16 comments »

The toolmaking part of my life comes in fits and starts. Over the last year I have built 3 planes for a client and it was a pleasure and an experience. Last week, yes Div, believe it or not, I finished an oak postbox for a client and really enjoyed the simplicity of the project. I had fun designing my own hinge and figuring out how it was going to work. I never do scale drawings although I might do an outline scale on a scrap of 4×4 paper to see if I am heading in the right directi...

In the Shop #4: Inspired to do something new... Hand-cut Dovetails

02-09-2011 05:09 AM by Hoakie | 28 comments »

Is it odd that every time I get a new power tool to perform a task, I get an urge to try and do it by hand as well? Anyway it seems to happen to me a lot. This year I received a dovetail jig for Christmas and was up and running cutting half-blind dovetails in no time. However, I have been wanting to learn techniques working with hand tools for a long time to expand my arsenal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been eying some of the entries to the Winter Challenge, the videos of the Ja...

New Pallets for my Dry Sink Project

02-07-2011 06:45 AM by JerryBerry | 11 comments »

Well, went out and collected 7 pallets for my next project. As you all know, I like to re-purpose wood to do my projects. This one should be interesting as it’s a Dry Sink and will be done entirely with old wood pallets. I’ll try to keep everyone up to date with what I’m doing here. http://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5487.jpghttp://i1129.photobucket.com/albums/m506/gdberry01/th_100_5488.jpg There are the links to the pics!

refurbishing old tools #2: fore plane, rabbit and 2 bead molding planes

02-07-2011 03:50 AM by Dave | 10 comments »

The day started with me preheating my shop with my kerosene heater. I fixed myself a tall cup of coffee and off I went. I could not wait to start on my [new to me] planes. I wanted to start on one of the 2 fore planes but I knew the time it would take to work on the iron. So I started on the rabbit skew plane. It was in excellent condition. The main problem is the very corner of the back of the iron is a little concave. With a few sharpening’s it will come into the correct flatness. ...

Ancient Bucket Master Class with Stefang #1: DIY convex plane - so far

02-05-2011 12:30 PM by daltxguy | 6 comments »

I am following Stefang’s master class on building a Nordic bucket using the medieval ways The first steps are to make the tools required to make the bucket. The most important tool is a plane to curve the inside of the staves of the the bucket and in true medieval fashion, this is being done with largely hand tools ( ok, and a bandsaw from well into the future). This blog series is to show my progress of the master class. Anyone can follow along and jump in any time to his c...

Jalen's Davenport desk. #2: #2: Decorative Base Blocks.

02-03-2011 02:28 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 0 comments »

I started the project by working on the base. It will have decorative blocks at all the corners and at the ends of the feet. The ones at the ends of the feet will be rounded. The wood I am using for this is 16/4 mahogany it was about 11 inches wide and a little over a foot long. 1. My jointer will only handle 8 inches so I had to plane sides flat and then join one at 90°. 2. Then cut to pieces 3 inches wide off of the blank with the table saw. 3. I used a number 4 smoothing plane...

A day antique shopping and a great find

01-30-2011 01:58 AM by Dave | 8 comments »

My wife And I spent the day going to county square’s and browsing antique shops. Of course I found a whole lot of old tools that were to far gone. I did come across a boxwood four-fold rule for eight dollars, but one of the hinges was busted. I saw a marking device I had never seen before. It was pistol gripped with a rose wood handle. The slide was embossed with ruler like measurements. The blade looked like an old style straight razor with the handle missing. I dont know if it was for...
