This week in the shop: an old tool tote

06-25-2017 05:21 PM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

Last year a very dear friend died after a full life. She was a very practical lady, and after she took care of items that she wanted the family to have, she made arrangements for the rest of her possessions to be organized and set up so that her extended family could come to her house and take their pick of what was in her house, from books, to shelving, to plates to everything. Absolutely nothing was sacred and everything was supposed to go if anyone had a use for it. One of the things th...

Bench Planes #1: Wood River #4 Smoothing Plane

10-13-2016 04:48 AM by HappyHowie | 5 comments »

The other day while tuning up my Wood River smoothing bench plane I noticed that its tote (handle) was cracked. I called Woodcraft’s customer service number to see if they had a template or technical drawing in case I was forced to make a replacement. They did not have a template or a drawing. And, they did not have replacement totes for sale. I also could not find any replacement totes on the Woodcraft online store. To my surprise they mailed me a new one for no charge. Thank...

Just for Fun... #98: For a Change...

09-18-2016 05:49 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

A little break in the House Renovation Action, so there was an opportunity to Work on something I’ve been building in my head for the last six months or so…I’ve had a designated ‘Work Box’ for a number of years, a box for storing personal things in at Work… My first one, I out-grew, and so I simply grabbed one that was ‘kicking around… This one is the right size for the Job, but has drawbacks… #1) It barely fits through my Locker Door (...

Stanley #5 Tote Restoration

08-12-2015 08:58 PM by Mattyboy | 8 comments »

I’ve had these two Stanley #5’s for a couple years now and use them often. But both had broken horns (not certain if that’s the right term) on the handle/tote, making it uncomfortable to hold. I’ve been using a glove when using these planes. Finally I got around to fixing them. I don’t happen to have any rosewood, so I used the darkest wood I had – walnut. On the first one, the fix is very obvious so I stained the walnut part on the second one and it’s a bit harder to tell a repair has bee...

Slightly Rustic Beer Gift Set- Beer Caddy, Tote, etc.

03-20-2015 07:07 PM by AlexHarris | 2 comments »

Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

Restoring Handplane Totes

02-01-2015 12:16 AM by poopiekat | 40 comments »

There’s lots of planes in my workshop that need a refurbished tote to make them usable. They are all projects for a later date, I keep telling myself. This is a typical tote, found on a transitional #27 on one of my hunting trips: Here’s what I do: To fix the broken horn, I first bandsaw off the stub, leaving as flat a surface as possible. Then, after confirming a nice flat surface, I select a little block of wood of similar grain, and glue it on. I keep exotic lit...

Reshaping a Stanley Sweetheart #62 Tote

11-04-2014 05:44 PM by Mauricio | 11 comments »

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

Handplanes #4: Custom Hand Plane Totes Stanley & LV Veritas

09-14-2014 01:28 AM by OSU55 | 1 comment »

I don’t like Stanley or Veritas factory totes. I made modifications to the drawings provided by Lee Valley. The result is kind of in between the two designs. I start with stock about 1-1/4” thick and end up slightly less. The designs adjust the tote angle, making the Stanley more upright and giving the LV tote a little more angle. The front lower and rear upper radii are smaller and the positions adjusted to affect the hand angle and provide more vertical room for larger hands. My...
