DIY HAND PLANES #1: shoulder plane based on Mafe and Div info

80 days ago by cyclops4069 | 2 comments »

Having now made my first hand plane, I was eager to try something a little more challenging. Something about the shape and delicacy of the components that made up a shoulder plane (and in particular the small shoulder planes that Mafe had been playing with in one of his Blog builds, also based on Div’s beautiful shoulder plane that he gifted to Mafe)....I think I was just hypnotised by the beauty of both of these planes and needed to make one. Firstly I decided on the style and the d...

A coffin smoother finds a new home.

365 days ago by Brad | 10 comments »

Recently, I spent time with my girlfriend’s brother Bob, tasting the latest in sour bear offerings at the Crooked Stave. After our taste buds gave out we made our way to the parking lot. But before we said our goodbyes, Bob handed me a coffin smoother. Apparently, the pastor at his church was downsizing his home and had to part with a number of woodworking tools. Bob knows I prefer using hand tools so he asked me if I wanted to give it a loving home. The Lord giveth. Here’s what I brought ...

refurbishing old tools #16: A Tune-up on a Fore Plane

828 days ago by Dave | 35 comments »

As most of you guys know I love my wood planes. I try to keep them in razor sharp condition at all times. They are a bit more needy than a metal plane. The sole doesn’t rust but is made of wood and it has a tendency to move. I don’t have any big projects sitting on the bench and had a half an afternoon. I grabbed one of my fore (some call it a jack) planes and tuned it up. You will first see the removal of the wedge. You can hit the plane on the top of the toe or heel. After the w...

Restoring Hand Planes.. My methods #21: Adding a new sole to wood bottom plane. Stanley #23 restored w new sole

916 days ago by Dan | 9 comments »

In my last blog I showed how I added an inlay piece to close up the throat of one of my transitional wood planes. Now I am going to show another method I learned and that is to add a whole new sole to the bottom of the existing worn sole. I will also show how I fixed a stripped out screw hole on the wood trans plane. Like the inlay I recently completed, this is the first time I have done this so it was a learning experience. However I found this method to be a bit easier then the inlay. Th...

Stanley #31 Transitional Plane Restoration

1001 days ago by GMatheson | 8 comments »

I came across an antique shop that had some old tools while on vacation. After strolling through I picked up a few planes and a saw vise (more to come on them later). Once I got home I decided I should start on the Stanley #31 first. I did some research to see exactly how old this plane was but couldn’t narrow it down as well as I would have liked to. I found that these planes were made between 1870-1943 and that my particular plane was made before 1915 because the frog was screwe...

So here it is ‘The basic cuts’. As so often recycle is the basis – here a piece of Ash wood that comes from the cut out for a kitchen sink.Its big wonderful staves that I simply cut out again by cutting in the glue line, ...

Low angel shoulder planeDrawings Analysis and Documentation… I promised to post a set of drawings for this project, normally I will not do this, but due to the fact I was spending the time drawing it to figure it out I decided to make a few drawings to help others build.(And no one just do that, it took 6-8 hours of work, and 8 hours of building and thinking, so just thinking of the fact that I should receive 75 dollar from a woodworking magazine and be happy makes me laugh it would ...
