My First Workbench #5: Day 5: Slugging it out

08-17-2012 12:11 AM by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today was all about slugging it out. I ended up smashing my knuckles against the wall stud I’m using as a brace when I was thinking ahead to the glue-up and not paying attention to how far I was reaching with the plane…then, I promptly sliced another finger on the sharp corner (how did that happen?) of the plank I was working on. Just a flesh wound… So, got a little bloody today, but, well, these things won’t plane themselves… Great thing about today th...

Wedding Clock #10: Like Frankenstein, It Stands Up

07-05-2011 01:17 AM by kenn | 2 comments »

I am up to the nerve wracking part of this build. I need to put some dados into the sides of the clock, but since both the sides and front/back are angled, the dados need to be angled. I’ve been thinking about how to do this since I started this project. Use a stack dado set and the table saw? Yeah, that would work, but I don’t think the cut will be as precise as I need it to be and the cut would register on the front edge of one side and the back edge of the other side. That...

Refurbishing Tools #1: Stanley Plane

04-17-2012 01:28 PM by rodman40 | 3 comments »

This here is my first attempt at tool refurbishing, this Stanley Plane belonged to my Father-in-law Bob who was a general contractor in Miami,Florida after WW 2, in which he was a Seabee. I have no clue how to use it so I’ll just hang on a wall for the present, wish I had asked Bob about it before he passed away. My brother-in-law in Miami inherited a majority of Bob’s tools, I wonder what he did with them? Will have to call him and ...

Shop Tools #19: Stanley 140

09-27-2013 02:27 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of another plane to the tool box. This one is a #140 Rabbet and block plane . They are pretty cool planes. One side of the plane can be removed for doing rabbet work on things like tenons. With the side on it can be used like a normal block plane. I’ve been looking for the right one for a while and also have been torn as to if I should get the Lie-Nielsen or stick with an old Stanley. This one is in pretty nice shape and it was about 1/3 the cost of the...

Handplane Restoration #5: Plane Blades

03-25-2007 06:11 AM by WayneC | 1 comment »

This morning I got up, threw my tool hunting pack and my son in the car and headed out to see what would come our way. We made our way across town to the local Woodcraft store, stopping at a few yard sales along the way. We did not find much of interest other than a trashed yankee drill that happend to have all of its original drill bits in its storage area. A buck later and we were on our way. At Woodcraft, I purchased a Hock blade and chip breaker for use the Record T5 hand plane descr...

Short Shavings #1: Rhykenology - The plane truth

07-11-2010 08:31 PM by Div | 8 comments »

It is my experience that not too many woodworkers are familiar with this strange word. As far as I can determine, the word Rhykenology was first coined by a certain Elliot Sayward, back in the mid seventies. He recognized that there was no general term for plane technology, use and history. The term is based on the Greek word for plane or scraper, rhykane, hence rhykenology. The word can loosely be defined as the study of planes.

A bailey #8c: Rehab and clean up

05-25-2013 08:25 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

I have an old Bailey #8c, type nine. It was getting rusty, and dirty from neglect. Just don’t have projects to fit it’s size. Got to checking the iron. Out of square by a 1/16th! Hmmm, have to fix that. Then, needed to resharpen the iron. So, out came the tools A two grit oil stone, some 1K grit wet& dry sandpaper, and a piece of leather belt, with some green stuff on it. A #8 iron is 2-5/8” WIDE! too wide for my honing guide. Had to do ...

Handplanes #1: I didn't know it was going to be this addictive.

04-20-2010 01:51 AM by Newfounlandwood | 15 comments »

Well guys,Let me start off by saying I have always admired old tools. There is something wonderful about holding a tool that a great craftsman may have used to make extraordinary with furniture a hundred years ago. Combine this with my new fascination with hand tools and I knew it was only a matter of time before I tried my hand at handplanes. It started out with the Veritas apron plane, which led to many ebay purchases. I have to say I could not have dreamed of a better finnish than these...
