Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...

This is just a quick video of me using a restored jointer plane that a got quite a while ago. Let me know what you think. I’d appreciate any hints on how to properly use such a large plane. Thanks.

Cherry Box of squares #5: Lid work

11-17-2016 10:43 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Ok, just to get caught up a bit. Sized the lid’s frame parts for length, and started to dovetail the corners.. Four pieces, all nice and smoothed up, and then checked to make sure they would fit the box.. Then start with the dovetails. While normally I start with the pins…for some reason I wound up doing the tails first.. Not the best looking ones, pins looked better.. Hardest part for me is to remember which side of the lines to saw on.. Otherwise, I get loos...

Old gems #1: I didn't know that my plane was so beautiful

06-12-2013 08:06 PM by Gibernak | 7 comments »

A couple of days ago I found out that its possible to restore an old plane. So I thought I’d give it a try. I only have a few planes and really only one that works. A old Bailey 5 1/4. I read somewhere that they were made from 1920 to 1947 so its no wonder that it looks worn. I bought it a year ago randomly, not thinking that it was anything special. I replace the blade with a Hock blade. That is really recommendable and I’ve just used it as were and have been very happy with i...

Hand planes #1: My 1st hand plane restoration

02-21-2017 04:52 AM by Mike54Ohio | 1 comment »

So a couple years ago my wife and I decided to remodel the kitchen (long overdue) and part of the project was ripping out all the carpeting downstairs and installing hardwood floors and new stair treads and risers. This project brought about my first hand plane purchase (a Wood River block plane) which I hardly used for the project and didn’t really look at it again until recently. So fast forward to late last year and I’m making some cutting boards for Christmas presents and in s...

Workbench #3: Base

03-12-2014 07:30 PM by john2005 | 8 comments »

Been awhile since I updated this. Hard to find time with a 2yr old and another on the way. Always trying to balance the time. Then of course the holidays came where all I did was make Christmas gifts. I had hoped to have this all wrapped up by the first of the year and here it is march and I’m not done. Close though. So the guy I got the birch from had already made 2 legs. They were 4” square and about 40” long. I was wanting to go with 5” legs but sinc...

I recently purchased this old hand plane. I believe it is for making the tounges. Not 100% sure though. Does anyone have any ifo to share? Iron has Butch Sheffield on it and the plane has “W Copeland Warranted” on it. Any year range?

A Plane Bench #1: Starting of a plane bench

06-12-2013 08:59 PM by rhett | 0 comments »

Well, I am happy to say I have been making a lot of planes lately, but in doing so, I have found my current bench to be lacking. The obvious answer is to build a bench, and who doesn’t want to build something in the shop. I have been using a large granite plate for sharpening and fettling and I have a bunch of ash, so I’ve decided to combine the two. The design is like most “shop” fixtures I make, design on the fly. By keeping an old camera in the shop, I am able t...
