Roubo Workbench Build #4: Slowly progressing.. discouraging?

05-23-2013 10:25 PM by Willeh | 3 comments »

Still at it.. Unfortunately I havent had much time to put into it over the past little while, but I’ve now planed and glued up the third of 4 sections of the top, and squared up the first 2 sections on the jointer ready to glue together. Found that I lost too much meat out of the width of the top and had to add in two extra boards to get back up over 20 inches wide… Think i’ve decided on the wagon vice.. I just love the way they look and function and I think it’l...

Custom Cabinet Construction #4: Where planes soar in a modern shop

05-23-2013 02:00 AM by rhett | 2 comments »

As of late, I have been helping a local cabinet maker get caught up on some work. Nothing fantastic, basic kitchen and bath cabinetry. Spending a few hours a week, building boxes in my shop while he works on the doors/drawers down the hill. Perfect opportunity for extra income to help get the planes flying. It’s also an excellent opportunity to document where old technology still wins in some parts of the modern shop. Let me show you two of the bigger steps in basic cabinetry and...

Restoring grandfathers tools #3: stanley #5

05-16-2013 05:49 AM by Tugboater78 | 6 comments »

before pics don’t show much but here is my grandfathers T17 #5. Stained hardwood, rubber depth knob, 1 piece knob and tote screws, frog adjustment and has the lever cap with the Patent date. The Tote was broken near the foot and the japping was 75% shot. Not too much rust, just dirty and neglected really. So I stripped the rest of the japping,repainted with several coats of Hammered Rustoleum. Replaced the wood with walnut pieces crafted by TerryR and acquired 2 piece brass screws. La...

Buying and dreaming about high quality hand planes

05-14-2013 08:35 PM by stefang | 6 comments »

New scraper planeI have been wanting a scraper plane for a long time. I’m tired of the heat and stress on my old hands caused by regular card scrapers. I didn’t want to spend a fortune, so I opted for a #80. It’s based on the Stanley plane of the same no. It’s made by Kunz, a German company. Here are a couple of photos. It’s a nicely made plane for it’s price, and I hope I can learn to love the green color. It’s very nicely finished in epoxy. Nothing ...

Hand Tool Journey #14: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 2

05-10-2013 03:17 PM by Airframer | 7 comments »

Just a quick update.. I see a lot of views but no feedback.. I’m beginning to think this is a stupid idea but, I’m pushing forward anyway. I got the legs rough cut and ready to be mortised into the hinge. I also got the brass curve cut. The geometry of that thing is a bit confusing but I think once the legs are shaped and the mortise is in place for that to go through it will make more sense. Right now the curve doesn’t seem like it will want to go through the same spo...

Hand Tool Journey #13: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 1

05-10-2013 04:27 AM by Airframer | 0 comments »

OK, so after my successful handle replacement I have the confidence to try something I have wanted to build up for a while. I need a layout compass and have been planning this out in my head for about a month now. Today was a day of trial and error. I don’t have any real plans drawn so this is a “make it up as I go” project. I spent the morning piecing together the hinge portion of the compass. I found some plans online and scaled them down by about half so they wou...

Roubo Workbench Build #2: Legs Legs Legs! - Also details on my rip sled

05-07-2013 11:11 PM by Willeh | 1 comment »

While I know that everyone says you should only really mill as much wood as you can work with in a day, the reality of it is that the wood I bought for the bench is taking up my entire garage, so, while I have cut the wood for the top down to size, before I can really get much further on it, I needed to cut the material for the legs down to size, then move the rest that I wont need for this project to the storage shed. In my last post, I mentioned my rip sled and some of the comments (I be...

Workbench Build #24: Getting Ready To Cut Some Dovetails..

05-06-2013 05:29 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Ok, so I got a little distracted with getting my hand plane assortment ready for work. I still have a couple more to go and another on the way but as it sits now I have a fully functional selection of old Stanleys that should get me wherever I need to go with them. Now as I sit here preparing to cut my first ever dovetails (seriously have never done this before) I need to get my saws in order. I have been putting off sharpening these for a while now and it is time I gave them some a...
