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...

Having the right tools

12-13-2011 08:05 PM by Nighthawk | 11 comments »

Those few of you that follow my mere attempts to be a wood worker will know I have fun doing it no matter how the project turns out. Whether it works out great or an failed attempt. Or whether it is a biggish project like the coffin or a small one like the cribbage board. Having the right tools for the job can make things so much easier, yes I will agree with that statement. However as we all know you don’t always have the right tool or all the tools you require or want to have in yo...

Shop Tools #12: Hmmmm. What is it?

06-17-2011 12:03 AM by WayneC | 26 comments »

I bought this off of ebay this week. It was listed as a small plane, but it looks like a toy, model or perhaps some form of box. I would not see a purpose for the lid if it was a toy or model. I bought it because it was unusual. It has a hinged lid. The blade and wedge appear to be decorative. The patina appears to be real indicating it is quite old. The horn has tool marks which to me indicate it was carved. Here is a view inside. The hole appears hand cut with tool marks evide...

Handplane Treasure Trove #1: Craigslist find

02-20-2013 07:33 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

So I found a C/L post or the sale of 7 hand planes. The only one I was interested in was a Stanley #7, so I inquired. The seller said he wanted $110 for all of them. Hmmmmm, I thought. If I could get him down some more that’d mean I’d pay a little more than $10 per plane. I could restore them, remove all the rust, sharpen the irons, etc. and sell em each for $25 or more. Except the #7….I want to keep that one. So I offered $80, citing the amount of rust removal, ...

Old vs. New Hand Planes

06-24-2014 01:42 PM by TheWoodenOyster | 17 comments »

Old Hand Planes vs. New Hand Planes Many people ask questions on forums about choosing old hand planes and refurbishing them or just buying new ones that are almost ready to go out of the box. I have done both, but I am still no master when it comes to making my decisions. I still go both ways, but these are my thoughts about the topic. I’ll give some pros and cons about each option and elaborate on them a little bit Old Hand Planes The cons: 1. You cannot always find the one y...

The Tool Gathering Odessy #5: Show off time!

01-17-2008 11:59 PM by Tomcat1066 | 13 comments »

The Thursday after payday is like Christmas for me. Why? Easy. That’s when the tools I bought the previous payday typically arrive! Today was a pretty big haul for me, and since I’ve mentioned these tools before, I have to make sure they actually exist by posting them. So, without further ado, here we go! First is this 12” Tenon saw. It’s marked WARRANTED SUPERIOR in a manner that reminds me of Disston saws. The metal is darkened from either age or some treat...

Shop stuff #41: I got a box

03-05-2016 06:00 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I have not been spending any time in the shop lately. I have been without ambition or motivation. It feels like I have had a sinus headache for about 2 months. I think it may be the changing weather. We seem to be getting more than one season in the span of a week. The temperatures have been bouncing around above and below the freezing point and we have had a lot of change in pressure systems too it seems. So I have been lazing around and blowing my nose and wiping watering eyes. This ...

New Block Plane on the way..

04-03-2010 06:02 PM by Rick Boyett | 4 comments »

After experiencing the terrible quality of the new Stanley sweetheart block plane, I decided to buy a new Veritas block plane. Instead of a new one, I started looking for a used one. Well last night I got my wish. Over on the Woodnet forums, Peter was selling his Veritas low angle block plane with extra blades, shims, the handle accessories and even the chamfer guide. EVERYTHING! Its on its way here and I’ll write another review as soon as I’ve got a chance to put it thro...
