Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #62: Tuning a Rabbet Plane

02-07-2016 07:33 PM by Paul Bucalo | 1 comment »

Last year I acquired this rabbet plane from a computer client. I finally got around to honing the iron and tuning the setup. I ended up eyeballing the iron angle in a Veritas Mk II and came close enough that the new edge would work for this plane. It took a while to get the skew angle eyeballed and locked down. I put an ever-so-slight beveled on the corners. Wood plane are still a bit of mystery (black art!) to me. It took a lot of fiddling and guess work to figure out how to make the ...

Odds 'N' Ends #5: Clean Tools are Happy Tools

01-26-2016 08:29 PM by ThomasLightle | 0 comments »

It is a good idea to clean your blades every once in a while. I try to do it every 6 months or so, unless it needs to happen sooner. We had a rare winter rainstorm and it blew open my workshop doors, drenching everything, so I also cleaned the rust off of my cast iron tabletops. Enjoy! Clean Your Tools!

First Order Toolcart #1: The inspiration and the plan

01-17-2016 03:20 PM by CJC716 | 3 comments »

After working with pegboard walls for 6 months I have grown to despise the functionality of it. I often do most of my work on the assembly table or my small bench and find that my tools never quite make it up to the peg board and when they do they seem to immediately need to be used again. As a fan of the TESTED – Adam Savage podcast I came across his concept of using tool carts to get tools out of drawers and into a state of first order retrievability. This is a method I often use a...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use. https://youtu.be/lZRZTXYKiJE

Dave's Workshop #13: I'm Getting a Scroll Saw!

01-08-2016 10:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

For some time I’ve thought of trying to use one of my spare jig saws to create a scroll saw. I’ve obviously not been in any great hurry to do this. However, a Do It Yourselfer friend mentioned to me some time ago that he had a scroll saw he wanted to get rid of because he never used it. He mentioned it again recently so I asked him what he’s take for it. He said $20, so I sealed the deal. He didn’t give me the model number, but said it was an older saw and was a Dreme...

New Kind of Woodworking Clamp! #2: EVEN BETTER! Andy redesigned his 4-way parallel clamp. Check it out!

12-12-2015 08:40 PM by CharlieK | 3 comments »

Andy redesigned the 4-way parallel clamp and now it is even better! The original design had an adjustment screw for different thickness of wood and it also had kind of a hook on the end where the two clamps nested together. The new design has eliminated the adjustment screw and the hook has been replaced with something that looks more like a regular parallel clamp. I have the actual prototypes in my shop in Minneapolis and Andy is in Denver. We posted corresponding videos to describe...
