How to Clean & Oil Your Antique Molding Planes

05-29-2014 02:31 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) In my above video I show how I clean and oil my antique molding planes. Of course, this method can apply to any wooden hand planes. My friend was kind enough to give me about 65 antique molding planes (thanks Bill!). Instead of spending a ton of time refurbishing them all right now, I thought I’d simply clean and oil them, and refurbish a plane when needed. I like to use boiled linseed oil (if you can’t find it at a local ha...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #11: Sand Shading

05-23-2014 04:58 PM by Patricelejeune | 4 comments »

I has been a while and I thought I could give an update on this project. We are preparing the class room for june, which means cleaning the space we use between the classes as our marquetry and french polish workshop. I am finishing shading before to put the project on the side for those reason. I use the sand shading method and mostly dipping considering the number of pieces. I usually do one or 2 flowers at a time and dip a series of 2 or 3 pieces, sometime 4 which gives me ...

05-19-2014 02:43 AM by cdnstudentwoodworker | 7 comments »

Recently i picked up three hand planes for 40 bucks at a local swap meet , one being the stanley defiance jack plane i showed earlier , also in the bunch were a stanley 102 and a rapier 400 smooth plane. My Uncle noticed my interest in wood and well… i ended up bringing home one of my grandpas (deceased since 2004) tool boxes full of tools that hadnt been used since they were put down by him. In that crate were a “IDEAL” brand jack plane , a stanley 9 1/2 and a stanley 102. ...

Making Wooden Flowers #7: Making a Leaf Stem

05-17-2014 04:01 PM by Ronbrush | 0 comments »

Wire SizeIn making flower stems, I use several gauges of galvanized wire, ranging from 14 GA to 30 GA as well as single strands from picture wire. Although some people use thin brass tubing (available from hobby shops), I have found that wires of varying gauges are sufficient to create a pleasing result for this project. I use two gauges of wire for each flower. The thicknesses will depend on the size of your flower – bigger flower, thicker wire. The heaviest gauge will form the flower stem a...

Making Wooden Flowers #6: Adding Sepals (the Calyx)

05-17-2014 01:11 AM by Ronbrush | 2 comments »

If you have been waiting for the next instalment of this tutorial, I apologize for the delay! This step is not absolutely necessary but I think it adds character to the finished flower. I create a star-shaped calyx by cutting three dart-shaped pieces from along the length of a shaving. These pieces are then soaked in water to encourage them to curl. With all three pieces placed with curls moving in the same direction, they can then be glued at the centre to form the calyx as shown below...

Making a Small Panel Saw #1: The Saw Plate

05-15-2014 05:43 PM by Mosquito | 24 comments »

I haven’t got a very large workshop, or bench. I enjoy using hand tools, and often make small rip cuts at my bench in the leg vise. I’ve wanted a small panel saw, in the 16-18” range, for a little while now. I made the decision to try making my own, and a couple of weeks ago I ordered a saw plate and hardware from Two Guys In A Garage Toolworks (www.tgiag.com). I ordered the 6-1/2” x 18” x 0.032” thk small panel/half back saw plate. My blank saw plat...

How to Cut Half-Lap Dovetails with Hand Tools - at Roy Underhill's Woodwright's School

05-15-2014 12:46 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I shot the above detailed Video of master joiner Bill Anderson at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School in Pittsboro, North Carolina. Bill shows how to cut a half-lap dovetail joint that covers the bottom groove in dovetail boxes. This excellent joint not only looks amazing, but it hides your grooves! BTW, he used mahogany wood on this joint. View the original blog post here. Yes, this video is longer than my typical videos, but i...
