Hand made Plane #1: Getting started

02-10-2008 11:46 PM by GaryK | 15 comments »

First of all let me say that this is the first hand plane I have ever made. I looked at some plans to get the general idea, but basically I am making it up as I go. There are things I did wrong but I will be able to fix them. I saw this type of sole on some planes in magazines and always wondered how they did it.It took me a while but I figured it out. Simple once you know how. I got ahead of myself didn’t get started taking pictures until later so I kind of went back over some th...

Shop made shoulder plane #1: Finally finished

11-03-2009 04:27 PM by parkerdude | 12 comments »

I wanted to try my hand at making hand planes, the shop needs several. Struggling with the design concept, I bought a book “Making Traditional Wooden Planes” by John M. Whelan, it was no novel but a good source of wood plane design info. It’s worth reading if you’re researching wooden hand planes. Trying to keep the first plane simple I decided on making a small shoulder plane in the Krenov style. Looking around my shop I found an old 1” chisel. It is harder than heck, so I took it a...

Free Wooden Smoothing Plane Plans

04-27-2013 05:57 PM by Caleb James | 10 comments »

So here we go again. It looks like you folks are having fun making some wooden planes so lets add to the fun. Here is a great little coffin shaped smoother for your collection. This is a fantastic size and a great introduction to making a wooden bench plane. The construction of the parts is a very typical arrangement and the size of wood needed to make this is much easier to find. Here are the plans in several different layouts. The download has four pages. First one is for shop reference ...

Techniques & Methods #1: Scary Sharp Method

06-18-2008 03:43 AM by PurpLev | 28 comments »

so just like every other woodworker at one point (what’s up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop. Since I am the weekend warrior at this point, and I do not need to resharpen my tools THAT often, nor THAT much, I figure that I can do without any expensive powertools (there are several of those on the market) to sharpen blades and I dont really have the spa...

Adventures in Japanning #1: Background, research & supplies.

10-08-2012 02:01 AM by JayT | 12 comments »

OK, first attempt at a blog, so please bear with me. This blog series is my journey of trying to replicate the japanning process used on many tools, especially hand planes, that has been used for over a century. It will include some abject failures, as well as what was found to work for me. This blog is not a commentary on how someone else might choose to finish their planes when doing a restoration and I am not necessarily advocating japanning over any other finish. There are many pe...

Shop Stool

10-27-2013 04:14 PM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 9 comments »

For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...

Building a roubo workbench in my apartment #1: Making the top

02-15-2010 07:04 AM by brklnguy | 26 comments »

I never want to hear anyone complain about their shop… anything has to be better than a tiny living room in a 400sqft apartment. This is my first project with hand tools. I worked as a cabinetmaker for 6 years, and then moved to NYC 3 years ago and changed careers. I’ve been wanting to get back into building furniture, and after a few months of reading everything Chris Schwartz has written and pretty much every other hand tool blog on the internet, I feel like I know everything...
