Handplanes #1: My book for new handplane users

06-14-2016 02:57 PM by CobblerMtn | 2 comments »

In April, I published a book based on the classes I teach at Woodcraft on using and restoring handplanes. The book is entitled Choosing and Using Handplanes: All You Need to Know to Get Started Planing by Hand. It’s a good resource for beginning handplane users but it also has tables and reference information more experienced users will find helpful. The book, which runs to 90 pages and has nearly 100 color illustrations, covers the following topics: - The types of handplanes, th...

Rediscovering Woodworking #3: More Hybrid than Power Journey

05-18-2016 12:13 AM by Tim Royal | 0 comments »

It was suggested in the comments on my first blog 2 years ago that I seek a more hand tool direction because of almost non-existent space to work. I AM a hybrid woodworker and love handtools, but have found that it is actually more and not less expensive to be completely hand tool oriented, primarily because larger projects using rough lumber are so labor and mainly space intensive as to be impractical when you are essentially forced to do most of your work outside in nice weather. What do yo...

how to sharpen

04-13-2016 04:59 PM by ShogunJimi | 0 comments »

In this you-tube Video https://youtu.be/noTv8vTeENM, I explore the question, “How to sharpen a new chisel? I understand that there are many different strategies for this task but as a novice creating this video allowed me to focus on the keys points. The process that is demonstrated is broken down into three phases. First: An Oil Stone is used and can be found for about twenty dollars on Amazon as “Stanley 16-050 Sharpening System.” The stone itself must first be flattened and to do t...

Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

Leather disc for sharpening

02-12-2016 07:45 PM by Sergeich | 6 comments »

I love to sharpen my tools with Japanese water stones. It is like meditation. First you choose appropriate stones for a particular blade. Then soak these stones in water for a while. Then level surfaces of the stones. Then pick up one stone and start to sharpen. Thoroughly, thoughtfuly, unhurriedly. Then you take second stone, then third, then fourth… Using nagura… Listening to shamisen… This way inevitably leads to full and ultimate enlightenment. But, to be honest, sometimes I just want to ...
