Estate/Garage Sale Finds #1: First Estate Sale attempt

1165 days ago by hodgepodge | 5 comments »

So, I have just recently gotten into woodworking and have developed an infatuation with hand planes and other old tools. The past few months I have been going to some garage sales here and there to try and find some old tools. I was referred to a website that lists upcoming estate sales and they began sending me emails to keep me informed. I opened up my email last week to find an estate sale in my area that began at 9 am on Thursday. I opened it not expecting much, but to my surprise I saw a...

Wood Types and Properties #2: Know your wood #2-Beech

1153 days ago by Paul Sellers | 3 comments »

Beech trees grow abundantly throughout the temperate zones of Europe, Asia and North America. The wood is of very even denseness throughout the grain because of its relatively small pores evenly distributed through both the early and late growth of each growth cycle (annual ring). My first mallet was made from beech and most mallets for three hundred years would have come from the beech tree. Though that is the case, and beech is a hard wood, I find beech just a little too soft for making...

Just Plane Old

2458 days ago by jpw1995 | 12 comments »

There seems to be a lot of talk about planes on the forum these days, so I thought I’d throw my hat in the ring. In David's Hand Planes #1 - Stanley Bench Plane I said I’d try to post some pictures of my great grandfather’s old planes, so here they are. I wish I had some wonderful story to give you about my great grandfather using these planes, but all I know is that they were his old wooden tool chest that I found recently in my mother’s garage. He passed away wh...

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

748 days ago 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...

Amazing Tools #9: Lie-Nielsen planes

1588 days ago by Gary Fixler | 11 comments »

I think I need help. It’s happening. I cannot stop researching planes and workbenches lately. I don’t have room for a bench, nor money for any planes, but they’re just so enticing! Lie-Nielsen has been the most attractive by far, but I find it staggering the number of planes available – 44 standards listed, with an additional 30 variants, not including left/right hand options for the few that have them (same price in each case). The bench plane model numbers (e.g. N...

Another New Fangled Workbench #4: "...doing all that planing."

2257 days ago by MichaelW | 8 comments »

I am dedicating this installment to GaryK’s comment from a previous entry. Gary this picture is for you: In addition to these three bags of shavings, there were a several more that either were added to the compost or made spectacular fireplace starter on some recent colder rainy nights. The three planes pictured below were my workhorses, the scrub in the top most position, no. 5 in the middle, and smooth at the bottom. In the course of all this planing, I am finding the ergo...
