Sculptured Wood Beauty ’’....a time to turn the page! He who lives in the woods and forest, will at getimians break forth into the many places of solitude, where he sits with the wood spirits as they offer forth words of wisdom and truth….” ….as i walk out the stories that have been written within my-self,mine eyes have be-come more conductive to light and darkness,which has be-come a most use-full tool in my tool wrap called life,for what individual can drea...

Planes restored - Because I can. #1: Planes Restored - Because i can.

05-16-2011 10:08 PM by Don W | 8 comments »

Throughout my many years of marriage, my wife has constantly dragging me on her antiquing outings. At some point I decided I needed to find a way to make the time useful. One day while looking over my 3 hand planes and knowing they needed serious tune ups, I started doing a little research. I was hooked at that point. I needed more planes, and I started buying and restoring. Stumbling onto this site I see that I am far from alone. So, since so many have helped me along the way, I figured ...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #14: Stanley Bailey #4 1/2 cleaned, tuned and upgraded to super user plane

05-16-2011 08:38 PM by Dan | 12 comments »

Just when I thought I had all of the bench planes that I would ever need I found the 4 1/2. When I first took an interest in hand planes I was a little amazed that there were so many different sizes. I didn’t understand the need for all the sizes and thats what had me most interested in getting them all. Over the past year I have been buying the different sized planes tuning each of them to go to work. After using each sized plane for a while I would start to see the differences and lea...

There’s a new post on the Little Good Pieces blog: Grooving Planes Part 1 – Un-Cupping the Skate. I start construction of a pair of grooving or drawer-bottom planes, and immediately have to deal with cupped wood. Check it out & see how I solved this problem: http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2011/05/12/grooving-planes-part-1-un-cupping-the-skate/

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #7: Dulling Planes and Scraper Shaves

05-12-2011 05:12 AM by RGtools | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile since I have made any sort of update here so I wanted to say a bit of what I was up to. But first and ode to one of the unsung heroes in my shop. !https://s3.amazonaws.com/lumberjocks.com/ll2ang9.jpg! This lovely little plane just does not get enough credit. The mouth is wide, it has no chip breaker, the sole is almost flat, the sides are dented beyond all repair and yet without this little guy I could not work the way I do. As you can see I have never used this ...

Projects in process. . . #3: Pen states cyclone dust collector

05-11-2011 01:53 AM by need2boat | 0 comments »

I’ve added these entries not in order of how they were installed rather as I’ve had time. As soon as I decided to convert my old garage into a shop, space was top of the list. When looking at how best to deal with things I decided to go with a cyclone and Pen state is within driving distance and they offered free layout. The close distance really helped as like most projects of this type it required a few returns and exchanges as I changed routing of duct a bit. If anyone i...

Building Baby Stokes' 3-in-1 Crib #3: Surface Planing

05-08-2011 08:54 PM by Will Stokes | 4 comments »

In the past I’ve tried to do something new in every project, a new type of joinery, using a new tool, pattern routing, etc. This is probably one of the first real projects in a while that I’ve made a conscious decision not to do that (because this way the project will be easier and go more smoothy, right? :-) ) That said, I can’t help but try out a few new techniques to better accomplish the same steps I’m familiar with along the way. Last time it was using the jig-saw...

$40 Trestle Table #1: Rachael Ray type planning

05-05-2011 08:30 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 7 comments »

If you ever want to get a group of women to take notice then roll their eyes and leave. As they are talking about cooking interrupt and say “Well, according to Rachael Ray….”. Or don’t try it. They usually don’t like it. So, what does this have to do with a trestle table? Rachael does her “eat on $40 dollars a day” program. Or at least she used to. My niece is moving into a new apartment and mentioned that she would like a new kitchen table. She&#...

Roubo Cabinet #5: Panel Glue-Ups

05-05-2011 08:22 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 9 comments »

Laid out the pieces to get panels that will be the top and two sides of the cabinet / carcase, paying some attention to grain pattern as well as grain direction, to get pieces that would be visually appealing and that would (hopefully) smooth well at final finish. Here’s the walnut all laid out: I’m gluing up a total of four total panels – two walnut and two pine. Not rocket science – apply glue to both edges: Brush out, then squeeze. Walnuts were first, and one of those needed ...

Roubo Cabinet #4: Resurfacing Material

05-02-2011 09:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 4 comments »

With plan and materials in hand it’s time to build panels that will become the Roubo Cabinet (with pictures!) Not for the faint at heart, this entry contains extensive hand plane use that many would consider exhausting and (essentially) pointless in the modern workshop. I, of course, see things differently. Up to this point, I’d not had a project that required solid wood panels that had to be joined / assembled to this extent. So ‘gluing up panels’ had meant rail and style stuff, not what ...
