Ok, here we go The plane had a few problems, some from the saw guy not following the lines. So, the mouth was extra big Yep, way too big, and ugly. two, the wedge was too short, allowing the iron to chatter along. First problem to fix was the mouth opening. Happen to have a cut-off from the plane build. Grain should match. Block was a bit big, and I have no resaw stuff to use. Got out the big stuff Sat the block right on the bench’s leg, and gave the big ch...
Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...
While watching a video series about China Hand Tool Wood working, saw a plane the fellow was making. “Should only take ten minutes or so to make, very simple..” Yeah, RIGHT. Took me about six HOURS! Anyway, I got out a piece of white oak stock, and tried out some cuts Ok, THAT didn’t go so well. That dummy can saw worth a … Front of the opening was way too big. Plan B. Had a second piece of white oak. Saw guy was a little bit better. Used ...

I didn’t want the first entry to be too long, it was War and Peace just for day 1. So, here’s the rest of day 1 followed by day 2.It’s really just hollowing mostly…hollowing, hollowing, and more hollowing.I stopped the first entry at 9:06 p.m. at about 2 inches depth.9:14 p.m. It’s not brain surgery…a long handled, a study tool rest, wood hitting the cutter head, me hanging on the back of the handle. Down to 4 inches in 8 minutes. The Sovereign can r...
Seth (my daughter’s boyfriend) does yard work for spending money and got some oak logs for me (about 4,000 pounds worth).I decided to try an open form with a (small) piece of it.Since it was green it was heavier than I wanted to try lifting onto the lathe. Besides that’s why I have a chain hoist and trolley. Seth was doing the hoisting…lots of pulling to bring it up…but he’s young. Initial mount to the headstock is a 4” faceplate, the biggest I’...
