Calling all Hand Plane Restoration Experts

06-15-2013 12:10 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

This will be my first go at restoring a wooden bodied hand plane. In the pics you’ll see it’s an older Stanley wooden bodied plane that is rusted up pretty bad. I can handle the rust issue with electrolysis like I’ve done many times before. As I’m typing this there are parts in the bath and last night I did the iron/blade….which is pitted pretty bad. But what concerns me are the checks in the wooden body and layers of gunk built up on the wood. In your...

Fatigue Mats

01-23-2011 12:47 AM by WoodArtbyJR | 13 comments »

Not sure if this belongs in a “Review” or “Blog” heading so I’ll place it here. Fatigue mats, you don’t think about them much unless you stand on a hard floor all day (and even then you probably think about them). I purchased a fatigue mat from our beloved Rockler a couple of years ago and loved it. It was sent to me rolled up and took about a year before it would lay flat. Still, working in front of my lath for hours at a time I found that it was a GRE...

Not just a Miter Jig

12-12-2012 03:05 AM by jumbojack | 0 comments »

I built this miter jig and posted it a month or so ago. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73645. It works better than I had hoped, but thats not all it does. I needed to cut some dowels all the same length and this little jig came to the rescue. I just set the stop and used the end of the jig as a stop for the saw. Sixteen dowels all the same length. Then I needed to drill some holes in some larger dowels. I brought the forstner bit down and centered in in the jig. Dropped in the 1 1/4” d...

Splines vs Biscuit Joiner #4: Carcass Installed

08-13-2010 06:44 AM by RonPeters | 4 comments »

Here’s the carcass installed. I oiled it the same as the bench. Sanded it a little to knock off the fuzz. I didn’t finish it all out as this is just a box for storage. Next is to make the door for the left side and drawers for the right The vise is completed. It has about a 3” throat because the dog block thickness is also about 3”. It probably should be closer to the left edge, but I don’t plan to be cutting anything – got a chop saw for that. Mo...

techniques #5: Greasemonkey script: Flickr LumberJockifier

03-30-2010 11:48 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

Something that’s always important to me is efficiency. I’m a weird mix of lazy and hardworking. I’ll spend 10 hours coding up something that will save me days of work later, mostly because I get bored of having to do the same steps over and over again. I post a lot of pictures here on LumberJocks, and my method is usually to pop off a tab with Flickr in it, move that new window to a separate monitor, then in my new post back in the first window type !()!: on its own line whe...

Scrolled Wooden Puzzles #3: The Grasshopper

07-28-2008 10:58 PM by Allison | 1 comment »

This is the way I have chosen to cut this out. First to go is the “O”. Leaving me with with the long “H” which is like the backJust a short tiny cut removes the 1st “P”of the double “P’s” Now I only have the “H” left and the “G” and I can cut them any which way I want to.In the next and last of this much too long series I will be bringing in “The Cheater”
