Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #6: Last Class of Level 1 :-(

01-28-2011 07:30 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Well the Level 1 is done and no I didn’t get my nail tray finished; I need about another hour to get it all together including fixing my myriad ‘learning opportunities’:-) I had a chance to use a rabbetting plane! and a brace and bit. I am very impressed with how easily these tools worked, I had anticipated that they would be much less effective for a lot more effort. I will be keeping my eyes open for good garage sales and auctions for more hand tools now. Overall (...

New Post on the Little Good Pieces Blog: Grooving Planes Part 1 - Un-Cupping the Skate

There’s a new post on the Little Good Pieces blog: Grooving Planes Part 1 – Un-Cupping the Skate. I start construction of a pair of grooving or drawer-bottom planes, and immediately have to deal with cupped wood. Check it out & see how I solved this problem: http://littlegoodpieces.wordpress.com/2011/05/12/grooving-planes-part-1-un-cupping-the-skate/

Ukulele No. 1 #2: some progress at home

03-23-2013 01:03 AM by Justin M Schmidt | 0 comments »

When I started this class I knew right away I would have to do a lot of work at home to keep up. Not having a bunch of essential tools slowed me down, but I’m finally getting some work done between classes. I swear there’s a ukulele somewhere in that pile of stuff! Last night I planed the sides down from about 4mm to 2mm. Pretty sloppy, but I’m learning. That was fun… there really is pure joy in a nice plane. (My Wood River V3 #5 is treating me well.) ...

Bench Gloat

03-15-2014 10:36 PM by DaveDelo | 4 comments »

First off…..a very big shout-out to fellow Creeker Toolz for selling this Shopsmith Workbench Pro to me. One of the best tool finds I’ve ever come across. This bench has some history to it in that it was used by Scott Phillips back when Shopsmith sponsored American Woodworker. These benches were discontinued in the early 90’s so this bench is probably a good 25 years old but you wouldn’t think it by the condition it’s in. Truly in great shape,...

Handplane Restoration #13: Record T5 Technical Jack Plane

04-28-2007 06:33 PM by WayneC | 5 comments »

I’m doing another easy plane today. I’m watching Norm build table saw jigs this morning and thought I would get another plane posted before I headed out to turn those pens. This is another ebay find. I had been looking for one a while and only seen a couple listed on ebay. My plan is to use this plane as my miter plane until I can afford a Lie-Nielson or perhaps find one for $5 at a garage sale (one can only hope). This plane was made in the United Kingdom and was used...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #2: Took the 50 home.

03-22-2011 04:09 AM by RGtools | 12 comments »

It’s rare when you can take a vintage tool home for a good price it’s incredible when you can a take vintage tool home and it requires no tune up. I finally found a plow plane. I haven’t even sharpened the blades yet and it makes good shavings. A sharpening session and a good coat of oil is all this guy needs. Of course I need to make a box for the blades…and maybe another shelf. There’s always more work and that makes me smile.

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #24: Drawbore, Glue Up, and Starting on the Tabletop

03-11-2012 10:44 PM by RGtools | 22 comments »

The process of drawboring has been mostly covered but I felt like giving a few tips in case this is in your mind to do on your table. The main thing is to make sure that the holes are spaced so they miss each other and are close to the middle of the tenon (mine could have been closer). Also make sure that the hole you drill is not going to be under the shoulder of one of your rails…simple mistake that makes assembly kind of hard. Your holes should be as close to the rails as they can be witho...

08-02-2008 02:22 PM by sawdog | 1 comment »

Does anybody know where I can get a set of replacement baldes and a manual for a palm planer by Task Force sold by Lowes? I have searched the interenet with no luck. I Know it is a cheap brand but I got it for a little change and it is in brand new shape. I understand that it is a Lowes brand but I think thtey have closed it out. I thought for the price what the heck. ThanksWaldo
