When we left off yesterday, I had a pile of cherry needing attention. So tonight The plan was to joint whatever I had to in support of the next step in this cabinet build: assembly and glue-up of the upper panel doors. The panel boards ended up just a hair less than 1/2” according to the measure on the planer, and I arranged them into a pattern that’d look good across both doors (three pieces per door). But some work is needed before I can do the glue up. I brought the p...

I was out in my garage the other day and went to start a project. Reaching into my toolbox and retrieving a hand plane the first thing I noticed was that it was rusting. Agian! I had just cleaned the rust off of all my planes a little over a month ago and already they were showing signs of new rust. There is nothing more frustrating than spending my free time cleaning rust off of my tools over and over again. I need to find a better way to protect my tools. I already keep them stored in a ...
Just playing around in the shop and came accross these planes. I made them a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Nothing too fancy, and the basic plans came from a book on making hand planes. They are a pleasure to use as the shavings come peeling through the throat opening. That nice whoosh sound that only planes make, and shavings thin enough to read through! And a polished surface that’s left behind. So much satisfaction in using them, knowing you made them. ...
For better or worse, I’ve dipped my foot in the handtool pool. A few weeks ago, I purchased a lovely ‘tricked out’ Stanley #4 from Don W. as well as a Sweetheart #3 from an anonymous LJ. Both planes were auctioned off by LukieB for charity. While I was waiting for the planes to make it across the border, I picked up a Bailey Stanley #4 that looked like this: I wanted to take one apart and understand how it works before possibly ruining all the work that was al...
Here are some more of my garage sale finds. I still don’t have quite all of them done, but I’m close.I intended to wait to restore these, but I couldn’t resist. For some strange reason my wife thinks I shoud be working on repairs on our house. I bet if I took a vote here, most of you would back me up. Thanks for looking.
Thanks to the likes of WayneC, Thos. Angle and Bob #2, I’ve been accumulating hand tools. One of the latest additions to the shop is a beautiful wooden plane. Made from Indonesian ebony and brass, it has an adjustable high-speed steel (Rc62-64) blade. I bought this plane for three reasons: 1. It was cool to look at.2. It didn’t cost much3. I thought my son could play with it and it could be his. Now, being a son of the metric system, I knew this plane was small. I just...
I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...
