How I built a set of folding sawhorses from plans from Woodworking for MereMortals.http://youtu.be/2yGGXmuVi1A
I’ve got my mom, who is an avid yard-saler, (although out in Western MA, they call ‘em Tag Sales) searching for planes for me to feed the need. She came to visit this weekend, and turned up this beaut for $5! I did a bit of research, I think it’s a Type 1 (circa 1877-1891) Stanley 127 Liberty Bell: The combination of trademarks on the blade and toe is what leads me to think it’s a Type 1… the toe is somewhat visible here: It’s in decen...
I have recently acquired a Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane. The guy who sold it to me thought it was from the 1950’s and said it belong to his father. I was suspicious of this so I read a type study on Stanley tools. From the specific stamping and style of manufacturing of this specific plane, I believe it to be one of the models produced from 1876-1880. It looks like this plane probably came from my friends great-grandfather, not his father!!! Any idea what this tool might be worth? I know...
I have extended the length of the base to make room for more drawers, and also the length of the top to 96” instead of the WW planned 87” since my material was 10’ long and there seemed to be thought at the time that it would be better suited for what I do… After a lot of planing and thicknessing (those pieces are really awkward and heavy after awhile) I was ready to start with the glue-ups of the top sections. Most of the beech pieces I had were between 6...
The Sides are S4S Red Oak and the Lid is S4S White Oak with a little character. The lid is a floating panel which I glued up with the box sides and then I cut the lid on the table saw. The bottom is pretty simple, and is made of 1/4 inch oak ply with upholstery leather. Next part is the tray for holding standard sized paper.
Here’s what all the fashionable jocks will be wearing the rest of the summer: (especially those with a nice off-kilter sense of humor and/or wordplay like mine…) Not only is it an “Air Plane” but it’s gone one step further and is a remote controlled (model?) air plane!This was a fun one to design, and I can’t wait for mine to show up in the mail! I’ve also reduced my (small) commission on the sale of these and my other shirts at printf...
Today marks the end of a long week. So I think I will take it easy tonight. Most days have been in excess of 12 hours. But, I’m still hoping to get something productive done over the weekend. Next week I will be traveling to Houston, so there will be little opportunity for creativity. Shortly after I arrived home, my daughter returned from the mailbox with my latest eBay purchase. Yes, it happens to be a handplane. Who could guess? I should try out the series capability and pos...
well here is the final post in my pull out trash box thing series. figure i’ll get right into it. first i started by adding some 45 blocks to the place where the trash can sits. i had to notch it because that drilling would have been pretty hard without a drill press. i notched it a bit to much though. and i used brass screws. why? because they were the only ones that were short enough to not go through my surface. but to sound smart just in-case someone missed the bucket its good th...
It has been some time since I have updated my blog on my progress. The bench is coming along nicely. I began working on the table top and am learning a lot as I progress. The top requires a lot of work. I don’t see myself building another bench for a long time. I am glad that I thought about what I would need before ever beginning. Since I started my bench, I have seen other’s benches on this site that look great. It has made me think about a wish list for the next bench,...
I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes.
