Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

1412 days ago by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

Tool Overview #3: Going Plane Crazy...

1412 days ago by David Craig | 15 comments »

Well, it would appear that I am sliding a little further down the slippery slope. I can see where, once you get started down a certain road, it is a little difficult to get off of it. A little over a month ago, my plane collection consisted of nothing, nada, zip. Now I have four, and tomorrow I am expecting the shipment of number five. It started innocently enough. I received a block plane as a thank you/birthday gift. I like mechanical things. I am a little slow on the take sometimes, but...

Quick plane makeover

1413 days ago by hannes | 5 comments »

I was away for a long weekend in August on the garden route, just relaxing and taking a break. While driving around my wife wanted to check out an antique shop near George. Antique shops are not really my thing, but sometimes you see interesting furniture and always interesting to see how it was made. Anyway while checking out some cool old furniture I spotted an old Stanley no.3 plane. It was rusted and a bit neglected and apart from a small chip in the body seemed to be in good shape....

Built In Closets #2: Making the pieces

1413 days ago by SPHinTampa | 1 comment »

I ordered 5 sheets of 3/4” maple ply from Tampa Intercity Lumber (if you are in the area, they are very helpful and carry nice stock). Until recently I did not have a decent table saw (more on that later), so rented shop time from Intercity Lumber and cut down the panels to 15” widths before loading into my Avalanche and heading home. Here are the cut down panels For the face frames, I also purchased 32 bd ft of 1×8” maple, which I then cut down into 1×2...

Having a nice weekend...

1415 days ago by Rick Boyett | 0 comments »

Saturdays can be tricky for me. I want to work in my shop. My wife wants us to go out somewhere… anywhere. Today we struck a happy medium. I took her out shopping for baby stuff (we’re working on an adoption) and she didn’t sigh even once when I pulled the car into the Woodcraft in Addison.. I had my #5 Bailey with me so I could check out a Hock blade but they didn’t have any in stock. I ended up buying a Pinnacle blade by IBC. I also bought a set of Groz engi...

Hand Tools #1: My New/Old 32" Jointer Plane

1415 days ago by MikeInPenetanguishene | 7 comments »

Picked up this 32” Jointer Plane at an antique store sale today. Looks in great shape, 2.5” iron is a bit nicked but was quite sharp. No marking on the plane itself, but has “Spear & Jackson” stamped on the iron. Looks original to the plane. I’m hoping I’ll be able to use it after a little tune up. Can anyone tell me anything more about this style of plane? There’s a little wooden ‘button’ or something on the top near the front...

Same Song, different band... Ordered a Veritas

1416 days ago by Rick Boyett | 1 comment »

Any of you following my incoherent ramblings know that I tried out a new Stanley Sweetheart Low Angle Jack Plane. Well I use the word “tried” kinda loosely because it was in such bad shape that I ended up returning it the next day. So strike one for me, let’s try another swing at this.. I just ordered the Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane. I also seriously considered the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Jack Plane I went with the Veritas mainly because I like the Norris style a...

Stanley gets delivered,.... Stanley gets returned.

1418 days ago by Rick Boyett | 9 comments »

In my last posting, I said that I had ordered a new Stanley Sweetheart No 62 low angle jack plane. I was really looking forward to testing this and putting it into the regular rotation for my hand tools. Unfortunately the plane that was sent to me had issues right out of the box. Mostly cosmetic. Among the issues were: 1. Tote was loose and had a small crack.2. Paint was peeling off the base of the plane from under the tote.3. Paint pealed off the base and stuck to the cap.4. Fla...

UNPOSTED PROJECTS -- NOW POSTED #2: HUTCH & SHELVE COMBINE

1421 days ago by BertFlores58 | 5 comments »

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high. T...

Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane

1423 days ago by Rahm_of_the_Woods | 9 comments »

I have recently acquired a Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane. The guy who sold it to me thought it was from the 1950’s and said it belong to his father. I was suspicious of this so I read a type study on Stanley tools. From the specific stamping and style of manufacturing of this specific plane, I believe it to be one of the models produced from 1876-1880. It looks like this plane probably came from my friends great-grandfather, not his father!!! Any idea what this tool might be worth? I know...
