Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #20: M&T Work on Panel Doors, with Video

584 days ago by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 40 comments »

Began work on the upper doors of the Wall Hung towards the end of Episode 19 by creating a bead detail on the right door while telling you of a rebate needed at the left door. No pics cutting the rabbet, but the center stiles come together just fine. All four stiles for the upper doors were cut to rough length and grooved for floating panels ‘too long ago’ to remember… The rail boards were measured and marked for their rough cuts; those are the pieces t...

Hand Plane catastrophe...or almost nearly a catastrophe!!!

2693 days ago by Matt | 17 comments »

So there I was last night. Down in the shop putting the finishing touches on a piece of cherry that would become a part of the desk I’ve been making for my daughter Madison. The pieces are all cut and dimensioned so now I’m just using my smoothing planes to put that sheen on the face that only a sharp blade can achieve. I have nothing against sanding, but I promised myself a long time ago to keep on practicing when and where I can with the hand planes. I’ve come a long w...

cool T's #2: sneak peek at the next one

2694 days ago by scottb | 10 comments »

It’s taken me a little longer than I thought to come up with some art for the “woodworkers obit shirt” (in days, not actual hours of work). After looking around for inspiration, I eventually came up with the perfect solution! on using…. A coffin smoother! I like having a couple layers of meaning, if not a little but of punny-ness. Here is the line art of what I have so far… The art still needs some finessing, (shading, detail, some typography… but...

489 days ago by Caleb James | 10 comments »

So here we go again. It looks like you folks are having fun making some wooden planes so lets add to the fun. Here is a great little coffin shaped smoother for your collection. This is a fantastic size and a great introduction to making a wooden bench plane. The construction of the parts is a very typical arrangement and the size of wood needed to make this is much easier to find. Here are the plans in several different layouts. The download has four pages. First one is for shop reference ...

Building an infill smoother #2: Sides and infill build

373 days ago by Wally331 | 9 comments »

Sorry it’s been so long between entries, two-a-day football practices sort of got in the way ;) I guess I’ll continue where I left off… While I was waiting for my steel to arrive from McMaster- Carr I moved my attention to the infill. I had to slightly re-size and refine my original drawing to the final bed angle(50 degrees) and plan out exactly where I wanted the bolts and how the infill would fit in. I used my new drawing to make some paper templates which I just gl...

Building an infill smoother #1: Inspiration and cutting out the sides

449 days ago by Wally331 | 5 comments »

This is my first blog post, so don’t be to alarmed if it is the biggest piece of garbage you have ever read. I’ll try my best though ;) For the past few months, I have been in a tool craze. Whether it is planes, saws, braces, chisels, or even miter boxes, I just can’t get enough. So when Don W started his blog about making an infill, I saw how easy it could be, and figured why not try it myself. I get a beautiful and functional tool to add to my collection, and some more ...

Wounded Soldier Rides Again #1: Back into battle - Shelton #4

276 days ago by 7Footer | 3 comments »

I looked it up and 111 days ago I said that “in a few days I’ll be done with the Shelton” ... Not surprised that my few days turned into 111. Well it’s finally done with the exception of another coat or 2 of finish on the tote. This is the only plane I have of this style (other than my super smoother from Shampeon – but this one made of all metal and only has a chip breaker with and a cross pin rather than a lever cap), and so any tips / suggestions are appre...
