Hello LJs!

04-22-2012 12:36 PM by Jtnguyen | 11 comments »

Hello all, First of all, I am a woodworking nob. It is a hobby that I’ve found very relaxing. Over the weekend I’ve ran into a number of hand planes and could not resist. I got a Stanley Bailey no 8c, Miller Falls no 18B, Stanley Bailey no 6, Craftsman no 5 size, unknown no 5 size, new Stanley no 4, Stanley no 110 block plane, and a set of Stanley no 60 butt chisels. All of this for the price of $123. A couple plane needs work but most are producing nice shavings. I don&#...

Making a valet #2: Shaping and fitting the base

04-22-2012 03:45 AM by Chelios | 2 comments »

The mortises were done so the next step was to shape the base. I cut the outline of the curves first with a saw then shaped with the spokeshave. It is so nice on endgraing when it is sharp. The end result is very smooth and the shavings chocolate shavings from a cake. It feels great when it is properly set up, it makes quick work of the curves, even on end grain Then I cleaned the parts a bit with the number 6. Does a great job. Next I cut the notches for the 2 c...

Hand Planes #2: NY Tool Co iron clean-up

04-19-2012 01:23 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

I got the iron cleaned up yesterday. Check out my website for more details. I was pretty impressed with the outcome. I gotta get it sharpened now and start cleaning the plane itself. I removed the handle the other day and cleaned out the mortise for a spot for the new handle. Have some left over mahogany, anyone think that will work? Which way is best for the grain to run, vertical or horizontal?

Sawbench & Diversions

04-18-2012 02:52 AM by Scott R. Turner | 3 comments »

I haven’t posted anything in a while, but I’ve lately found time to get back into the shop and work on a few projects. One was a Chris Schwarz-style saw bench out of SYP from the local Big Box Store. I glued up the top from a couple of dense 1×8s I had left over from some other project, penciled in a curve and roughed the sawing notch out of the end with a coping saw, which was a bit of a chore. The top has a nice heft to it. The legs were glued up from match...

Refurbishing Tools #1: Stanley Plane

04-17-2012 01:28 PM by rodman40 | 3 comments »

This here is my first attempt at tool refurbishing, this Stanley Plane belonged to my Father-in-law Bob who was a general contractor in Miami,Florida after WW 2, in which he was a Seabee. I have no clue how to use it so I’ll just hang on a wall for the present, wish I had asked Bob about it before he passed away. My brother-in-law in Miami inherited a majority of Bob’s tools, I wonder what he did with them? Will have to call him and ...

Hand Planes #1: Big beast came in the mail today.

04-16-2012 04:29 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 14 comments »

Well today I received my big plane. It is 26” long by 3” wide. It is HUGE. Stamped New York Tool Co on the plane and the iron is Auburn Tool Co. It has some wear and tear. The handle needs to be replaced, but the bottom is flat and no major cracks. I’m just getting into the wooden hand planes. Could someone tell me type of wood should be used for the handle?

Split Roubo Workbench #5: The End Tenon and Screw Cavity

04-16-2012 01:47 AM by lysdexic | 19 comments »

So the end of this week has been kind of weird. My wife had a yard sale. Man, that is a lot of work to get rid of crap that you shouldn’t have bought in the first place. The in-law relatives came down from West Virgini. My brother graciously came in to give me a hand on the bench but I came down with a viral gastritis. I was socially wrangled, mentally distracted and physically diminished. But we can’t let that get in the way. This is a hobby, a pilgrimage and an obsession̷...

Old hand plane

04-15-2012 07:14 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 8 comments »

I recently purchased this old hand plane. I believe it is for making the tounges. Not 100% sure though. Does anyone have any ifo to share? Iron has Butch Sheffield on it and the plane has “W Copeland Warranted” on it. Any year range?
