Ever since I saw Mafe's router plane I’ve had the desire to make one. As I do most often I look here on LJs for inspiration. Well, I found it. As I searched I came across this gem of a router plane made by Tinnocker. Tinnocker got his inspiration from Mafe’s design as well. I used a picture of Tinnockers design to come up with my version of a router plane. The body of the plane is hard maple. The handles are from some old chair spindles I had laying around, The plane iron is a ...
Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...
Thought I’d try this tool gloat as a blog entry. i’ve had the Powermatic 3520b for a few months now (gotta blog that.) When I first got it the two old Craftsman lathes had to go away ‘cause there weren’t no room in the inn for three lathes.So I put them under tarps in the driveway and Craig’s listed them to new homes. I knew when I got the 3520 that there was only one place in the garage for it…under the 14 inch I beam that runs from the front to t...

I don’t take the time during the week for shop therapy, priorities being what they are and all. But my work schedule includes Four-Hour Fridays, so I can get an earlier start on my therapy for the weekend. Last weekend I got my lumber rack close to finished. I’m a little worried about undertaking the cabinet project, and I’ve been procrastinating a little, but also looking for ways to hone the skills I think I’ll need before cutting into the wood we’ve selec...
This book is a great book. It is almost like a dictionary for handtools. The pictures are very detailed. You can look up almost any handtools and figure information out from how to use it to how to care for the tool. If you are just getting into hand tools I recommend getting a reference book. This is a great choice. If the video below will not play click here. for the video book review.
