Two very different planes. A Shelton Block plane Just a little on the rusty side. Another look? Being steel instead of cast iron, yep, it do get a bit orange. The second plane is a little bit bigger, though.. Looks like a new knob will have to be turned. A nice RED frog.. Seems to be alright. Big silver adjuster wheel. Chrome everywhere. Blue paint around the Craftsman logo. Looks like i will have some fun with this clean up. Got out the tools, the bel...

Nothing’s finished but I have three little boys so it might be 18 years or so but the sanding is done! So I’m posting this stuff so I can at least say I’m finished with something and some how that 15 min at a time in between homeschooling and motherhood and a traveling husband I got something done so I’m going to throw my self a party and get ready to stain. So I’ve been told that I need to condition the wood before I stain but my Dad said he’s never cond...

Finding the right hand plane

06-20-2013 04:43 AM by parkerdude | 7 comments »

I’ve been looking to grow my hand plane collection for almost a year. A Stanley #6 kinda satisfied my tastes, I don’t make a lot of large projects, and nice Stanley #7’s and #8’s usually command premium prices. This #6 showed up on eBay, and I bid until I won. A whole $39.75 Man, this thing is HUGE! Well at least for me. It weighs just under 8 pounds. (from Patrick’s Blood & Gore website), and the sole and sides were evenly covered in rust. ...

Fix and repaint table… Retro style

01-10-2012 01:03 PM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

Sisters table has broken legs. It is a shame really as it is pretty old table and still pretty good nick. After looking at it best we can do is glue and the try and brace the base a bit more. Now big sis wants to sand whole table back and redo just to spruce up. Now we all love wood, but her house has heaps of natural wood showing and with the table, it actually becomes to much so she is thinking of … eeeek painting it. (shock horror I know, but I actually on this occasion agree with her, ...

Getting my tools ready #18: Adding dust collection to my jointer and my planer

01-16-2015 03:27 AM by DocSavage45 | 20 comments »

Been awhile and making some progress! Thought I’d do an update on my depreciated shop equipment LOL! Murphy continues to haunt my shop but it appears he went South for a winter vacation! I want to thank Stumpy Nubbs for inspiration while shopping at his and my favorite box store. Stumpy finds innovative adaptive uses for items we might not associate with woodworking. I’ve done some roofing and plumbing and stumpy has some innovative uses for trivets and plumbing stuff such...

Hand Tools #1: My Stanley - Bailey No. 4 restoration

11-23-2013 06:07 PM by Jerry | 6 comments »

My very first woodworking hand tool was this Stanley – Bailey No. 4. I bought it from Craigslist for $10.00. It’s about 50 years old, I bought it from the 45 year old son of the man who had passed on and left it to him. He was not a woodworker. I subsequently bought all 6 of his Henry Disston saws for $30.00 which I will showcase in a future blog entry. The first picture shows the condition of the plane when I bought it. The subsequent pics show the restored plane from a ...

Building the Shop #2: Walls

08-12-2009 04:30 AM by unklegwar | 5 comments »

So far, here’s the plan for “finishing” the walls. Subject to change as I see new and different cool stuff to buy. Exterior walls will be DryLok-ed, then Insulpink with 1×3 furring strips held by Tapcon screws right into the block. Sheathed with 7/16×4 x 8 OSB (at HD it’s only $1 more per sheet over sheetrock, and this will hold a screw anywhere, no hunting for studs). Inner walls will be OSB over 1×3 (no insul) One framed wall will be OSB ov...

Apartment Router Table / Table Saw #2: Insert, Rails, and Fence

02-13-2014 10:03 PM by JonDH | 0 comments »

We left off last time and I had a hole in my table with a blank insert, getting me back to a functional dining room table. Step 1: Install some T track. I originally thought I would just make a long fence and clamp it to the edge of the table. It would be a pain in the neck, but I didn’t think it would get heavy use. Instead I saw a lot of videos and commercial fixtures that use T track, and it looked amazing. I would be able to use hold-down clamps, using a fence would be easier. Ba...
