Handplanes #2: Mastering Woodworking Shows

06-15-2016 09:39 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...

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...

Refinishing a Dresser

06-13-2016 10:53 PM by ShaunMeighan | 2 comments »

View on YouTube Hello everyone! As I have declared myself the designated woodworker in my household, I am getting all sorts of home improvement jobs. Today, my parents asked me to refinish the tops of their bedside dressers. I thought I would talk through what I do to refinish things, and maybe you guys could learn something and/or offer some tips! While the main body of the dressers is generally alright, the top surfaces are in rough shape. Glasses of water and cups of coffee...

hard-drive magnets for an apron

06-12-2016 10:51 PM by metolius | 5 comments »

When a hard-drive dies in one of my computers, I take it out and and pull it apart to get the magnets out. Hard-drives have extremely strong and slim magnets. They end up in many useful places. One keeps my drill chuck in one spot… a half dozen hold notes and pictures. I also have a couple on my shop apron. The magnet is on the inside and a metal washer is on the outside holding it in place. It keeps my scribe knife nearby without putting a hole in the pocket. Sometimes the...

Knives, making scales, different rivets, handles

05-25-2016 12:33 PM by dbray45 | 17 comments »

One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...

This really helped me. Hope it helps you guys. I just screwed 2 pieces of wood together to form a right angle that my plane could rest and ride on while jointing. The result was 90 degrees dead on. Watch the video here.!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/o7i91zj.jpg!
