Homemade Tools #1: Block plane and Joiner Plane

07-30-2007 07:14 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 17 comments »

Just playing around in the shop and came accross these planes. I made them a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. Nothing too fancy, and the basic plans came from a book on making hand planes. They are a pleasure to use as the shavings come peeling through the throat opening. That nice whoosh sound that only planes make, and shavings thin enough to read through! And a polished surface that’s left behind. So much satisfaction in using them, knowing you made them. ...

Another Craigslist Score....Powermatic Drill Press!

03-15-2010 03:18 AM by Brad_Nailor | 6 comments »

Bam! I was lurking in the shadows of Craigslist and what did i see? An older gentleman selling all his woodworking equipment and moving into a smaller place. I couldn’t tell from the picture in the post what the make of the DP was but I recognized that familiar Powermatic gold paint! I emailed and the son who was listing it for his computer illiterate father sent me a huge picture of it and sure enough it was a Powermatic drill press. I arranged to go look at it, the guys place was abou...

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #3: Bench Top Carving Bench

07-29-2009 03:10 PM by Jack Barnhill | 9 comments »

Edited 8/21/09: A couple of years ago I took an intro class on wood carving. The school had on hand some carving benches for the students to use but, naturally, I had to make my own design. Below is the design that I came up with. It was small enough for me to lug to class and large enough to handle most of the carving projects that I anticipate doing. It also allowed me the flexibility to accommodate various sizes of work and be able to reposition them without unscrewing and re-screwing...

Inlay Tools #1: Introduction and Radius Cutter

07-07-2009 09:59 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

I was very intruiged by Steve Latta’s DVD for Lie-Nielsen “Fundamentals of Inlay: Stringing, Line & Berry” and the associated line of inlay tools that they offer along with it. I learned (by way of the Villiage Carpenter) that Steve has been touching a longer course on inlay for quite some time, and used to advocate the manufacture of your own tools, in the style that Lie-Nielsen is now offering. When looking at those offerings, I did think that several of them could...

Tools #1: New (to me) Delta Jointer

10-21-2010 01:07 AM by DevilDogNurse | 4 comments »

I picked up this used Delta Jointer off of craigslist for $115. Seems like a good deal! I need to get some push blocks (the guy had lost his). I think the blades need to be sharpened, I’ll do some reasearch on that next!

Hi, my name is John and I am a Tool Junkie #1: Grizzly Tent Sale - Muncy PA - Sept 13, 2008

09-15-2008 04:28 PM by John | 9 comments »

Where can you buy 1000 (full size) sheets of (nice, waterproof) sandpaper for $1.00? Those were the first things to go; I managed to grab 2 boxes in the frenzy, one box of 150 grit, one of 280… Need a sheet? let me know! At 8:00 Saturday morning, Grizzly Industrial’s annual tent sale in Muncy PA opened their doors. I thought I would check this thing out, and actually got there 15 minutes early thinking I would take a look around before the crowds showed up at 10:00 or so…...

Handplane Restoration #7: Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 before

04-02-2007 02:07 AM by WayneC | 3 comments »

This is a Stanley Bailey #3 Type 10 Bench Plane that I picked up a few weeks back at a local antique street sale. It was better than the one that I had set aside to restore. (I’ll save the other one for Obi if he wants it) The purchase price for this plane was $20. The first step in the restoration process is to determine the type of the plane and condition of the plane. To do this I looked up the plane using the stanley bench plane dating page. using information from the plane. ...

Hand Tool Journey #3: Amazing find... Maebiki-nokogiri

05-18-2009 05:48 PM by Blake | 16 comments »

So as I have mentioned in previous blogs, I have been studying and collecting Japanese hand tools. And my favorite book which has inspired the collection is JAPANESE WOODWORKING TOOLS by Toshio Odate. In this book there is a section on saws (Nokogiri) where Odate proudly displays a favorite in his collection: This saw was a rip saw used to mill large stock. The wide blade was designed to keep the cut straight in very thick lumber. It was used by the mighty kobiki-shokunin (s...
