The Perfect Leather Washer

12-28-2012 12:17 AM by hhhopks | 9 comments »

I was making replacement handles for my chisels. I tried the sockets and tang versions with good results. I got some old chisel handles that had leather washers at the other end. I was curious if I could make them too. I did the usual searches and had found great information. Since several LJ members is curious about the how they were cut, I have decided that I’ll post the process here. How the leather washers look really desn’t matter. It is an intermediate step of the chisel handle...

Grizzly Jointer G1182Z

12-27-2012 05:29 AM by airfieldman | 4 comments »

I have been looking for a jointer for some time now, wanting a quality product on a budget. I’ve nibbled and sniffed a few, but just couldn’t pull the trigger (sorry for mixing metaphors, for those who care about such things…). This past weekend I finally did.

Dewalt RAS Restoration #4: New Tabletop: Final Pictures

12-27-2012 03:29 AM by milbert | 2 comments »

This has been done for quite a long time, I am not sure why I have never updated the blog but I wanted to post the final product! I made the tabletop according to the Mr. Sawdust book and I must say that I am extremely happy with it.

This will be easily replaceable if it gets too beat up. I spent a...

Stanley-Bailey #4 Restore

11-19-2012 09:07 PM by scamp238 | 38 comments »

I bought a Stanley-Bailey #4 plane today. This is my first plane and I want to restore it the right way. I am on a limited budget, so it may take a while. I want to use the parts that were there when I bought it. I know very little about planes, so I am asking for some help/suggestions from all the great LJs out there. Let me post a few pictures so you can get an idea of what I have to work with. I hope there is someone out there that can help me.

With the windows in an awesome state, it was time to re-arrange some things in the kitchen. There’s a small bedroom off the kitchen, who’s door went right into the kitchen, right next to the sink—a bad place for it. I decided to move that doorway around the corner, pointing towards the rear of the house, making it more private and no longer interfering with the main kitchen area. Luckily, the wall where I wanted to put the door had originally been an exterior window, and the...
