I recently purchased a plane on ebay and to be very honest I haven’t a clue as to the maker. I sam hoping to get some help from someone who knows more about hand planes than I do. On the plane body onj the mouth behind the iron the number 7 is stamped. Then behind the frog ant in front of the handle in this order starting at the frog is the letter U in a circle then made in the USA and then behind that is the number 8 just in front of the handle. I’m going to try and post some pi...
I am officially obsessed with different kinds of wood. Researching, looking for, and unfortunately for my wallet, buying. I cannot wrap my head around how many kinds of amazing wood I’ve never known of. Cocobolo, Bocote, Birdseye maple, how have I never known you until now?! I can only hope to honor the beauty of the woods I have purchased, but with limited “shop” time, I’m mainly relegated to thinking about, buying, and stacking different wood species. I...
I have built a bathroom cabinet from oak panels and a steel frame. It is industrial styled wich is very hot here in the Netherlands at the moment. I made a video of the building process wich can be seen on Youtube I hope you like it. Regards,Gerry
I needed a stand for my anvil. I had just taken apart my workbench with all the 2×6 material and decided to use that. After cutting all the pieces to 23” I screwed 6 sets side by side using pocket holes. After I had all those done I screwed them all together in a laminate design. I flipped these back and forth to add strength so the pocket holes were not all on one side. Check out the video and subscribe.
Shelves are great for storage, but sometimes the brackets can be an eye sore. A floating shelf comes in handy in these circumstances. In this video I go over how easy it is to make floating shelves. Hit the SUBSCRIBE button for more woodworking videos.
View on YouTube This was my first woodworking project and my first channel video. I decided to make a shovel with some leftovers of wood I had laying around my garage, its useful at the end of the day when the floor gets covered on flakes and dust.
There’s a good chance that I’ll be doing a lot more lutherie in the future. Through a connection my wife has as a music teacher, I’ll be apprenticed to a music store as a repairer of wooden instruments. I wouldn’t call this an absolutely done deal, but very likely at the least. I love the idea of having a unique job and this one could be fun as well. I gotta start binge watching all the guitar repair videos on Youtube. I haven’t met the owner yet, but he̵...
Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...
In the following drawing the book “The Marquetry Manual” by William A. Lincoln tells you the window method is done by starting with the farthest piece in the background. This would be #1 in the top drawing. Instead of following the lines in the drawing drawing when you come to an adjoining piece you over cut (dotted lines) into the adjoining piece. Put glue all the way around it, with a tooth pic, I put my glue in aplastic coffee can lid. Wait for the glue to dry then draw or t...
I had never done a basketweave before so this is the process I came up with. At first it was one of those trial and error things, I’m sure we have all done this. I covered the inside and outside so I had to have 10 panels. A time consuming process, but I would do it again. In this picture I am shading both ends of the pieces. I do enough to make 2 or 3 rows. I put 5 or 6 pieces in and by the time I get the last one in the sand the first one is ready to be turned or taken o...
