I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...

View on YouTube This week I continued to focus on the back of the chair. I spent time finessing the crestrails shape. After that, I focused on the center back slat. Milled up ebony bars and inlayed them into the center back slat.

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers. I also show you my new Lie-Nielsen Number 2 Bench Plane and talk about why I bought it and show you how it preforms.

I’ve had these two Stanley #5’s for a couple years now and use them often. But both had broken horns (not certain if that’s the right term) on the handle/tote, making it uncomfortable to hold. I’ve been using a glove when using these planes. Finally I got around to fixing them. I don’t happen to have any rosewood, so I used the darkest wood I had – walnut. On the first one, the fix is very obvious so I stained the walnut part on the second one and it’s a bit harder to tell a repair has bee...
[Taken from my Adventures in Woodworking blog, August 2007] Before heading back to SE Asia, I needed to accumulate the bare minimum tools needed for woodworking by hand. The class I attended at Homestead Heritage recommends 10 tools in particular, and this is where I started: combination square set of chisels strong layout knife combination marking/mortise gauge small dovetail or gent’s saw tenon saw small hammer for joint assembly solid joiner’s mallet smoothing plane...
I recently received these handplanes from my grandfather. I need help in ID’ing what kind of planes they are. There are no marking on any of them that I can tell. Any help would be appreciated.
Laid out some toys but this was just the tip of the iceberg. Set up a “high-tech workbench” after using a “saw tub” to cut what I needed off a plank. Then the rest gets clamped in place Then clamp the new saw bench top in place for a little joinery work used this old saw to make a few cuts checked the angled parts with a gauge, and a small handplane to smooth it down. the chisels did most of the removal work. angle is about 12 degrees. Time to ma...
Yesterday I completed the combination pallete and wet canvase holder. It is constucted out of birch plywood with oak inserts for holding the wet canvases. The pallete is finished with two coats of BLO. It is shown out of the box with an inserted canvase and inside the box with the pallete in view. I trimmed the drawers with walnut and put two coats of Danish oil on the box. I’ll let the oil dry for three or four days and then finish with satin wipe on polyurethane. ...
