This is a Stanley no.4 1/2 that I built up from parts. The Tote is a sandwich of 3 pieces of bubinga, in a ‘Z’ configuration glued to 2 acrylic tote profiles with maple cheeks.my original idea was to use brass sheet but I didn’t have any to hand so I used clear acrylic sheet [from a car registration plate]. Also I fitted a Quangsheng Blade & Chipbreaker assembley. The body was first stripped and repainted and the surfaces reground.The mouth needed to ope...
I have a lot of projects that my wife (HI Nicole!) wants me to do involving wood. Well it never seems like they get done and I feel bad because I want her to be happy. She asked me to make her a little shelf to go over the back of the couch to place picture frames on or what ever else ends up going there. I figured this would be a great chance to practice some of my hand tool skills and see how it goes. I measured out the back of the couch to see what the length should be which was 78″. It is...
I retrieved to old wooden planes that belonged to my dad from the shop on the family farm now run by my youngest brother. They probably haven’t been used in 50 years. As a long term project (this coming winter) I want to clean them up and if feasible make them functional. They are at least pre WWII. Would these be something made in a high school shop class in the early 40’s?The large one is 22” long and the smaller is 16”. Since I don’t know much about plane I...

My Workbench Saga I am a relatively new woodworker. I had grand visions of building furniture when I started on this quest nearly five years ago but all I have managed to actually build are storage sheds, animal shelters, and a couple of amateur shelving units that I am embarrassed to show anyone with real skills. My journey toward building an actual piece of furniture I can be proud of has progressed in fits and starts. I have read countless books, magazines, web articles, and forum posts...
I am delighted i went into McQuillans in Dublin yesterday and got my first piece of exotic hardwood, i got some zebrano (zebra wood) they were selling loads of pieces of exotic harwood in blanks and in little bocks, its around 2 foot long and around 2 inches square. It was the first proper tradesmen shop i had been in, so it was the first shop i had seen with table saws, power planers, bandsaws etc. it was amazing.
Making the Workbench with Paul Sellers If the video below is not working please use this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru2ZiNsWek This replicates my personal workbench, one I have used and preferred over all others for, well, actually, half a century. Let’s talk briefly about benches and specifically working workbenches and not images of what a bench should be. Anyone can build any bench type they like, regardless of whether it works well or not, is big and clunky and la...
