A small tool gloat.

03-26-2011 08:04 PM by CoolDavion | 2 comments »

Today I stopped into an antique store that I’ve driven by several times. I looked around they had some tools (plane a couple levels and a couple squares), but nothing that matched the cash on hand or was worth the price. I was almost out the door, but took a last look in a display case. In it I spotted this little gem A Stanley, stamped H101P on the side. So a happy day for me

Milling Lumber Basics

03-25-2011 01:17 AM by Brian024 | 3 comments »

Here is a video on how to mill up lumber, even though my methods are ones I learned here. Also this is one of the videos I’ll use for when I teach classes at my church, just burning it to a dvd.

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #2: Took the 50 home.

03-22-2011 04:09 AM by RGtools | 12 comments »

It’s rare when you can take a vintage tool home for a good price it’s incredible when you can a take vintage tool home and it requires no tune up. I finally found a plow plane. I haven’t even sharpened the blades yet and it makes good shavings. A sharpening session and a good coat of oil is all this guy needs. Of course I need to make a box for the blades…and maybe another shelf. There’s always more work and that makes me smile.

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #9: Stanley Bailey # 7 complete restore w pics!

03-14-2011 08:11 PM by Dan | 13 comments »

Ahhhh the No. 7 my toughest and most challenging restoration yet. I won this big hunk of rusted metal off Ebay for 38.00. Thats a rather good deal when you look at what most No. 7 planes sell for on Ebay. This plane was in worse shape then any of other bench planes I had restored. It was covered in rust, had countless dings and scratches all over the sides and bottom and the front knob was an obvious home made replacement. On the bright side most all of the original japanning was rusted ri...

Workshop upgrades #1: Glenn Drake saves the day...twice.

03-06-2011 05:33 AM by RGtools | 6 comments »

I am currently building a small shelf out of Alder and some mystery white wood to house some of my finer tools so that I do not have to go into my larger cabinet to get them all the time. This is part of a larger initiative to keep my sharp tools sharp and accessible, as someone who only uses hand tools most of the time this is about as critical to my work-flow as paying the power bill before someone fires up their table saw. Roughly six hours got me to this point. I really did not take a...

Cello#8 final contours and hollowing out the back

03-06-2011 12:50 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

Hi all,THe last entry saw the contour shapes made. These were chacked against the cross section templates. I need to check the form is accurate against the contour plan. Remember the plan shown below. It is used to make comparisons with the existing contours on the cello back. THe contours are drawn on to the back using a simplistic type of surface gauge aka a bit of wood with a pencil held on to a flat surface. The pencil point is set at the height of the contour and this is ma...
