628 days ago by Doug4 | 2 comments »

What is the best way to lift/remove black crayon from fresh, untreated pine before the final sand / stain , etc. My daughter wrote on the finished side of my coffee table top (my fault). Any recommendations / expertise would be greatly appreciated. The table is 80 %; pictures are soon to follow. Thank you. Doug

Hand Planes #2: NY Tool Co iron clean-up

855 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 7 comments »

I got the iron cleaned up yesterday. Check out my website for more details. I was pretty impressed with the outcome. I gotta get it sharpened now and start cleaning the plane itself. I removed the handle the other day and cleaned out the mortise for a spot for the new handle. Have some left over mahogany, anyone think that will work? Which way is best for the grain to run, vertical or horizontal?

Electrolysis: on the cheap for vintage tool people

1174 days ago by Bertha | 120 comments »

I’ve got some things with brown stuff on them. Lesser men call it rust; true LJ’s don’t recognize this “rust” as a worthy foe. To follow is a real-time electrolysis setup. . I’m no expert on electrolysis, but being stupid has never stopped me from doing stupid things. I’m going to blog an electrolysisi system for rusty tools in real time. You accept all risk, as I’ll be deemed incompetent pre-trial, so good luck in the civil.. First...

2488 days ago by David | 16 comments »

Stanley Bench Plane Restoration UPDATE PDF ELECTROLYTIC RUST REMOVAL INSTRUCTION SHEET My Stanley Bench Plane restoration project is progressing well. All parts have been cleaned of rust using the electrolytic rust removal process described in the prior blog entry. I was really impressed with how clean the parts were after the electrolytic de-rusting process. As a reminder, this is NOT a plane with intrinsic collector value. I am restoring this “user plane” to be used on my bench...

This is a cry for help really. I have a house full of old knotty pine tongue & groove walls & ceilings. This house and this wood especially holds a special place in my heart.

2504 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Well, the stumps are ground and we’re ready to start bringing in the fill and preparing the foundation this week. We have the permit and zoning approval. The cement sub came out and placed flags for the extension off of the driveway, and also to demark where the foundation of the shop will sit. My contractor says that it will take 4 trucks of fill for the driveway extension and the shop foundation. They are going to have to approach the shop on the grass beside the driveway and will...

Finally, My Dream Shop #5: Do tadpoles jump? ~ And, I GOT GOOD NEWS TODAY, I THINK.

2509 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Whatever is in the “pond” where my shop will soon be jumps. They are tiny things so I can’t describe them but they jumped out of the way as I paddled thru on my tractor lawn mower. At times I needed fins and I almost got stuck several times in the mud. But, be it known that I was successful in cutting the water off at grass height, and we are good to go for the tree trimming tomorrow. The “Tree People” are going to bring something to lay down over some of the...

Finally, My Dream Shop #4: The Rain Stopped...Now I have Tadpoles !

2510 days ago by Calgirl | 5 comments »

Well, it rained intermittantly for 5 days and today was the first “dry” day. My contractor could not submit the plans to the city for the permit because of something about a boat and a guy named Columbus. The “Tree People” have been itchin’ to make some logs for my turning and wood stock, but alas, some tadpoles(?) are swimming in the “pond” which has taken over where my shop footing will be and the “Tree People can’t do their thing in h...
