Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #15: Material Prep for Panel Doors - With #48 Video

06-23-2012 04:05 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 66 comments »

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...

Homemade Tools #1: Block plane and Joiner Plane

07-30-2007 07:14 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

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. ...

Tools Anonymous #8: My three Stanleys

03-14-2013 04:21 PM by Sandra | 17 comments »

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.

Hand Tools #1: Miniature Plane

11-17-2007 07:15 PM by mot | 16 comments »

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...

First Hand Plane Restore

01-24-2013 03:56 AM by BigRedKnothead | 14 comments »

Well, here’s my first hand plane restore. Like something out of a woodworking mag, a buddy sent me a picture message of plane. He found this plane in the rafters of his garage was just checking if I wanted it before he threw it into his scrap pile. Of course I told him, “I’ll be right over.” It is Bailey No. 8. According to Rexmill.com, it would be around a type 10. I decided to restore it Rexmill style. It was mostly surface rust, but the more I cleaned it, ...
