So here we are it really starts to look like tools.And wouuu do I love that! I had a bad surprise again due to my lack of planning…The irons were too wide on the little shaves.But this is not a problem, just a grinding task. So back to the disc sander. Remember to dip all the time, so you do not burn it.(If you burn the steel ...

Scraper shaves my waywhen the going gets tough… Part three of the tour! Even you disturb me Swirt! Yes you! I just got the ‘Motel of the mysteries’ and I love this book! Have you ever wondered how an archeologist figures out what the artifacts he or she discovers are, and how they were used those many centuries ago? David Macaulay has written an explanation that will inform all of us. He imagines that in 4022, a mediocre amateur archeologist fell into a sink hole wh...

Scraper shaves my wayShape up the body With my favorite Supersander I now get the chance to shape the handles, this is my favorite part.I choose to go a little more organic than they usually look, this for two reasons; I like it and find it beautiful, and second I find these organic shapes wonderful for the hands to use.I guess it could be called bone shaped. After the details with smaller sander wheels. Flattening the sole. Also the small soles. And here we are next step.My Go...

Scraper shaves my waymaking a bunch of scraper shaves Lately I have been making quite a few new handles for old hammers and axes, and the finish has been made with a card scraper.This tool, the scraper starts to show its face to me more and more – when a large burr it can produce shavings, and with a fine burr it can make dust. But most of all it brings a finish that you can never get with sandpaper, it brings out the life of the wood. So when I lately saw several people here on L...

MaFeBurnisher BLOGscraper set up tool Ok I posted the project, and here are the blog, since there seems to be some wishes for that now… If there are wishes, I’ll make a work drawing with measures, but I think it’s quite ‘out the road’.(And thank you, I’m better today, so I could spend a little quality time in the work shop 2×40 min.). The project comes from different ideas I have seen around, and the fact I’m not all happy for my VERITAS...

The Straightedge (video) #3: Not Another Video on Card Scrapers

03-18-2010 06:36 PM by Brian Havens | 16 comments »

They are shown in their new protective coverings for storage as I am currently workshopless. And if that wasn’t a word before then I just created it. They are the Lee Valley / Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane and the Lie-Nielsen Low Angle Block Plane in Bronze. I actually got the Lie-Nielsen plane at Woodcraft a few weeks before the conference but I haven’t...
