Wooden Planes #15: Miscellany

1 day ago by Mark Kornell | 1 comment »

SpokeshaveMade from the Lee Valley small shave kit. Beech body. Knives The outer ones are small carving knives. Jatoba on the left and african mahogany on the right. The middle is an ebony marking knife. The blades on the carving knives are HCS jigsaw blades, while the blade on the marking knife came from Grizzly. Chisel Plane Quite possibly the ugliest, crudest plane in my collection. Well, no. Definitely the ugliest and crudest. But it does what it needs to do. Mahoga...

home made tools

61 days ago by Lazy_K | 4 comments »

Hi;seems like showing off one’s Shop built or home-made tools is de rigueur here so I’ll get it over with fast!Over the years I have built many tools and jigs. some were failures, most were not.The main thing is there are a lot of tools that you could buy, but also that you could just make! like marking gauges and scratch stocks, for starters. I don’t expect making your own saw to be everyones cuppa, nor making your own hand plane, but big compasses and other marking tools, ...

Shop Stool

173 days ago by kaerlighedsbamsen | 9 comments »

For my workbench i needed a tall stool for more accurate work and just a place to rest. This is a descripition on how i made this project. Searching LJ i found these two fine projects:- Having a fascination with all-things-Japanense (having both worked in a sushi restaurant and done karate for several years) these Singer-songrwriters chairs by Junji impressed me.- This post on shop stools by shipwright described a interesting method for dying oak black with steel wool dissolved in wineg...

Spokeshave rehab

373 days ago by BTimmons | 2 comments »

A kind LJ frequenting the HPOYD thread noticed a question I asked about spokeshaves, and was nice enough to send an old one my way for about the cost of shipping only. Thank you again, kind sir. Here’s how it looked right out of the box. No maker’s marks or model numbers, but sturdy enough from the look of it. A little bit of surface rust. Nothing too gnarly. The screw for the lever cap is slightly bent, but it still turns alright. Couldn’t find a thumbscre...

$3 Cambodian Spokeshave

509 days ago by bobasaurus | 3 comments »

On my recent trip to Cambodia, I picked up an interesting souvenir: I found this spokeshave sitting in the back of a huge local market. It was in a sketchy-looking hardware store that also had some chisels and wooden hand planes for sale, along with a few farming implements. It looked terrible, but the stall owner (an older lady giving me a skeptical look, as my friend and I were the only foreigners in the place) only wanted $3 for it… sold. My favorite part is the text ...

My Own Road to Damascus #3: Let's try shaping by hand

613 days ago by Kookaburra | 6 comments »

After some excellent advice in my last blog post, I decided rather that trying to work on my dovetail skills, I would take a step back and work on the component skills. I wanted to make my version of woodpezzer's porcupine. I had the wood (some figured maple in smaller pieces). Why not try that! I started by gluing up three one inch pieces and drawing on my little porky. He is about 14” long and 6” tall. Next came my rough shaping. Big chunks, little chunks, some ...

Sitting Bench Step Stool #1: History, Templates and the Initial Leg Shaping

658 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 15 comments »

After all of the support I received during our recent website troubles, I knew I had to come up with a special way of saying thank you. I considered sending out cards or personal emails, but I ultimately decided that the best way to show my appreciation would be to build one of the most requested projects ever: the Step Stool Sitting Bench. The reason this one gets requested so often is because it happens to be featured in our show’s introduction. The PastThis particular stool was actua...

Canoe Paddle #3: Up the Creek with a Finished Paddle

769 days ago by Bagtown | 4 comments »

So, here we go.This will be the final chapter to this series.When we left off the paddle blade and shaft were somewhere between roughed and semi finished.The next step is a little slower. At least for me it is.The handgrip.Excuse the poor photography, but here is what were starting with for the handgrip. You get the idea. We’re starting with just a roughsawn blank.I think if I had been a little slower and used just a little more care at the bandsaw stage, then I wouldn’t have s...
