How to Cut a Dado Joint with Hand Tools

6 days ago by WoodAndShop | 1 comment »

In my above video I show how to cut a simple dado joint with basic woodworking hand tools. What is a dado joint used for? A dado joint is used for securing shelves inside cabinets or book shelves. (View the original blog post here). TOOLS THAT YOU’LL NEEDEven though I have a nice tool buying guide (here), I’m still often asked for links to the tools that I use in my videos, so here is a list of tools that I used in this video: WORKBENCH:-Sjoberg Elite 2500 Beech Workbench (with o...

Making a Router Plane

527 days ago by nobuckle | 7 comments »

Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...

I miss my shop in the winter. #1: Can't wait till spring in Wisconsin :-)

586 days ago by gforcegarcia | 1 comment »

It’s the middle of January , and I am itching to get out in the shop. Right now it is all packed up for the winter so we can park inside. I just added a bunch of new T8 lights to the shop. 5 new fixtures in all. I also recieved my brand new Veritas Router Plane yesterday. I am very excited to try it out. I guess I will spend the cold months sharpening my tools, and designing projects so I can hit the ground running as soon as the temps are over 40 all day long. I have a bunch of projec...

Vintage Tool Rehab Projects #17: Rehabbing a SB Router Plane #71 Type 8

708 days ago by Brad | 9 comments »

My tool kit has longed for a router plane for some time. Why? • Because my dados need their bottoms flattened to a consistent depth.• Because my rabbets need to be trued—and to the same depth.• Because my tenons need to be trued too.• Because I wanted to do these functions accurately by hand versus a power router.• Because my Stanley family was anxious to add a new brother to the mix. But where to find one?In the year I’ve been combing estate and garage sales I̵...

Rounding Plane / Dowel Maker attempt #3: Tool making gone fractal + finishing the blade holder

906 days ago by llwynog | 3 comments »

If I ever succeed in making a usable rounding plane, it will be a tool to be used with a tool to make a tool.The rounding plane makes a dowel, which is used with a wood die to shape a thread in order to make a clamp such as these http://lumberjocks.com/projects/49549 Then it got convoluted when I realized that I needed yet another tool to be able to recess the blade into the blade holder somewhat accurately.As I do not own a router plane and as I did not wish to use my electric router, my ...

refurbishing old tools #12: Stanley 71

994 days ago by Dave | 34 comments »

I won a bid on eBay for a Stanley 71 for $19.02 plus shipping. I was very pleased for the chance to own such a fine plane. Here is the picture that was posted on eBay. And here is a bit of a break down when I received it. After break down. Sorry no pictures of the process. I wiped everything down with acetone and a wire brush. I took my roto tool and got the rust out of all the nooks and cracks. The original finish was only 60 percent there. I am wanting a good clean user th...

Occasional Table Class (Hand Tool Build) #7: The tool kit part 5 (lifesavers)

1098 days ago by RGtools | 13 comments »

Both of these tools are very optional for the build…in fact I hope you don’t need these. I really do. I would love it if all your tenons come out perfect and that all of your planed surfaces come out gleaming and wonderful. If not… Card Scrapers will remove tear-out from even the most persnickety woods. They are cheap tools (you can even use a sacrificed saw blade…I have, and they work fine if you pick one without pitting near the cutting edge) but if you gra...

Small router plane tutorial blog

1215 days ago by mafe | 40 comments »

Small router plane tutorialanother of my tool making journeys I have a Stanley and a Record router plane, but sometimes it would be wonderful with a small router plane, I have been looking at the Veritas small router plane, but thought it could be fun to make my own, so when I purchased some stuff from Lee Valley I also ordered a 9,5 dollar Veritas blade for their small router. This little blade has then been resting in my plane cabinet until I had the right idea for a design, at first I j...

Assiniiboine Community College Woodworking course #4: Half way done :-(

1313 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 5 comments »

Hello, posting this a bit late because I had to go to Winnipeg early on Thursday so had to get up early which meant I had to hit the hay as soon as I got home :-( It was a great course we essentially just worked on the nail tray project, laying out the cutlist on the wood, then dimensioning the wood. Really just learning how to interpret the drawings and instructions. There was one huge, significant and really cooolll thing Ryan introduced to us…THE ROUTER PLANE!!!! This is such...
