Intarsia Basics #1: Introduction and Invitation to All.

845 days ago by KoryK | 36 comments »

Hello to all and all are Welcome, Intro: Hi, my name is Kory Kiker and a couple of weeks ago Ms. Debbie contacted me about conducting an online class for those interested in learning the art of intarsia. I was very excited about the chance to share a few things I have learned in the last three years of doing intarsia art. Before intarsia I did a lot of wood carving so I hope this helps give each project more depth and definition. I will tell you now that most of the things I’ve lear...

Boxland: Work Stations and Boxing Tips #6: Making Great $5 Band Clamps!

671 days ago by Boxguy | 23 comments »

Overview: If you are going to make boxes there is no substitute for good band clamps. They pull all eight joint cuts together and tend to average out any cuts that are slightly off. I use two clamps on each box. They are expensive to buy, but cheap if you make your own. When in use, they look like this. These are really cranked down to pull all the joints tight. (A big thanks to Derrick who patiently helped me picture each step in this process.) Hint: To make this a quick read j...

Handplane Reference #7: Electronic Books.

1161 days ago by WayneC | 48 comments »

In Feburary 2011, I broke my right leg and ended up having to deal with an extend stay in the hospital and time away from work. I was given an eReader as a get well gift and have been using it to kill the time. One of the things I found is that many classic woodworking books are available in electronic format for free. Many of these come from Google Books. You can read these books on-line using your web browser and down load them to your computer and save them there if you like. If yo...

Free 18th Century Style 3/4" Wooden Rabbet Plane Plans

476 days ago by Caleb James | 7 comments »

So in the spirit of getting everyone in the shop and cutting up some wood I decided to post up a measured drawing of a 3/4” wooden rabbet plane in the 18th century style. It is all wood with the exception of the blade which is easily gotten from Lie-Nielsen here. It features a conical escapement and some simple embellishments that a hand plane, chisel, and #7 sweep gouge can handle. The plans are basic with a few things that can be easily changed if you like. Such as the bed angle...

Low angel shoulder planeMaking a blade from another plane iron. This is the second part of the blog, in last part the plane body was made. This is where we will end, Div’s shoulder plane on top, then mine and finally what this part is about; the plane iron. Since I have a handful of block plane irons I got for next to nothing, I will ‘kill’ one of these.Measure the width of your shoulder plane and add a little for later tuning (I added 1mm).Draw this on your plane ...

Low angel shoulder planeDrawings Analysis and Documentation… I promised to post a set of drawings for this project, normally I will not do this, but due to the fact I was spending the time drawing it to figure it out I decided to make a few drawings to help others build.(And no one just do that, it took 6-8 hours of work, and 8 hours of building and thinking, so just thinking of the fact that I should receive 75 dollar from a woodworking magazine and be happy makes me laugh it would ...

Penguin Tool Chest #5: shipwright-style Box Hinges

999 days ago by bobasaurus | 7 comments »

After seeing shipwright’s nifty wooden box hinge technique , I knew I had to try it myself. I’m not sure if it’s been attempted on this large a scale, but I’m happy with how it came out. The only change I made to the original technique was putting the grooves on the face of the board instead of the edge, that way the somewhat-unsightly filled groove would be hidden from view on the outside of the tool chest. Here is the initial setup with the grooves still open: ...

Welcome back and again sorry for taking so long to get this post out. After my hand healed I was really backed up on some other projects.
