ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Working around the house #1: Restoring Old Hand Tools

05-04-2017 12:26 PM by ofthemound | 4 comments »

Hello again! So this is where I am at in my journey of woodworking. Over the winter I decided to invest in older, high quality hand tools. Now I have a nice set of hand tools to work with. I always heard the common phrase, ”They don’t make them like they use to!” I never really thought much of it till I was holding two Stanley Bailey hand planes, the oldest being 100+ years old. Still solid to my amazement! I spent time to restore my jack and fore hand planes and now I have ...

To Give is better than to Receive

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Help in inentifying my newest plane

04-13-2017 03:04 PM by EarlIII | 5 comments »

I recently purchased a plane on ebay and to be very honest I haven’t a clue as to the maker. I sam hoping to get some help from someone who knows more about hand planes than I do. On the plane body onj the mouth behind the iron the number 7 is stamped. Then behind the frog ant in front of the handle in this order starting at the frog is the letter U in a circle then made in the USA and then behind that is the number 8 just in front of the handle. I’m going to try and post some pi...

Shop stool part 2

03-24-2017 02:51 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 4 comments »

Here the second and last part of the “stool in concert”. It’s just another shop stool, but was made with a lot of love. If you have not yet seen the first part, see it first to get in the right mood! (You can see and hear the complete concert on my videos). In this second part I dedicated to elaborate the seat, the final assembly and the finish. Here the wedges of the seat ! Thinking of finishes, and that this stool will be used in the workshop, I decided on wat...

I believe that it was made in the 50’s. so not really that old by hand plane standards, but I had a blast restoring it and learned some good skills. https://youtu.be/GneTY8fCDRs

Shop Stool

03-14-2017 12:35 AM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

I begin the make of a stool for the workshop, with a comfortable height for my body. The wood used, here in Argentina, is called “Anchico” (Parapiptadenia rigida). It is a hard and heavy wood, which for its can also be used outdoors. In this first part designed a template, I decided to make the legs first. I wanted them to have a shape that remembered some of those forms of the fine antique European furniture, but simplified. A visual suggestion, a recall, but not the details o...

shop re start the new RMR #3: hesitant progress

02-26-2017 10:10 AM by DsRMR | 0 comments »

well a little progress has been made unfortunately i’m hesitant to do too much because i may lose the place with the recent employment termination and lack of resources in new state. <div></div> But anyway i was going to move my 4×8 work bench in as a alt. out-feed table, but instead i added on a 18”x40” removable leaf for now. I did get the base and stationary fence done on my cross cut sled, next is assembling the adjustable miter fence and attaching it. got...
