Handplanes #2: Mastering Woodworking Shows

06-15-2016 09:38 PM by CobblerMtn | 0 comments »

Today I filmed two shows for Charles Neil’s Mastering Woodworking webcast. The shows cover the waterfront, from the types of planes and how they’re used, to planing technique, to restoring an old handplane. If you are a subscriber to the Mastering Woodworking shows, expect to see these broadcasts this week and next. If you aren’t a subscriber, the shows are an excellent way to learn woodworking and a lot of fun to watch, so you might consider subscribing. The website add...

How I loaded huge walnut log

03-20-2011 11:56 PM by Built2Last | 9 comments »

Since I built my sawmill a year or so ago, I’ve had one major problem. Getting logs here to mill.I tried using my log arch but, with a 24” diameter log on it, there is no fun at all in pulling it on the highway with a big log, “just a swingin” behind you, held by a couple of straps, on a trailer with no springs. I’ve tried pulling them on the trailer and then pulling them off, but that way tearing up my trailer. My trailer is a 20 footer, abou...

Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane

10-09-2010 06:21 AM by Rahm_of_the_Woods | 9 comments »

I have recently acquired a Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane. The guy who sold it to me thought it was from the 1950’s and said it belong to his father. I was suspicious of this so I read a type study on Stanley tools. From the specific stamping and style of manufacturing of this specific plane, I believe it to be one of the models produced from 1876-1880. It looks like this plane probably came from my friends great-grandfather, not his father!!! Any idea what this tool might be worth? I know...

Intarsia Basics #4: Part 4 Coming Soon (Sorry)!!!!

05-03-2012 03:02 AM by KoryK | 9 comments »

I just wanted to update on the status of the class and inform every one of the delay. For those of you that do not know, I had a misfortunate (stupid?) accident and broke a bone in my right hand a couple of weeks ago. I was hoping that I had progressed far enough beforehand that it would not affect the class. Unfortunately the bones are not healing correctly and it is taking longer for ir it to heal. I tried again tonight, but do not have enough dexterity or hand strength to sand while I...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #12: Living with old tools

05-12-2011 12:05 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Late last year, before I put the saw away for the winter, a piece of the casting on the tablesaw broke. It was causing some vibration and the blade to move side to side a bit when adjusting height. Not good in conjunction with zero clearance inserts. Anyway, it is getting warm again and time to get the saw ready for what I hope will be a productive summer. The “key” as I am calling it had to be fixed. There are 2 parts that mount on a shaft and are keyed together you can see ...

The old time woodshop journals #18: Lessons in spoonery!

08-01-2012 11:13 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Hi gang, hope all is well out there! Well, as the sanding is getting underway for my trestle table I have really been learning more and enjoying this spoon carving craft. It really is a great way to refresh your outlook and break patterns that may become repetitive in the process of executing your creative ideas. I have enjoyed the hatchet work and learning just how much you can produce with 4-5 tools. For me…... a sloyd knife, smaller knife, hook knife, camp hatchet, and sp...
