Tool Making #2: Does anyone know the thickness and lenght of a E C STEARNS Hollow Auger Bit?

10-05-2013 04:54 AM by WayneC | 13 comments »

I’m looking to make a replacement blade for a hollow auger. I know the blade is one inch wide. I do not know thickness or length as the auger has not arrived yet. If anyone has one of these hollow augers, could they post a photo of the blade? Also, I would be interested to know if anyone knows of a source for these blades. I am assuming one will have to be made but it does not hurt to ask. Example of what the blade looks like.

Shop Tools #20: Union 42 Tongue and Groove Plane

09-28-2013 03:01 AM by WayneC | 9 comments »

Another tool is moving into the toolbox and taking up residence. This one is a Union 42 tongue and groove plane. It was purchased to go with a Union 41 Tongue and Groove Plane I got a while back. These are functionally the same as Stanley 48 and 49 T&G planes. The Union 42 is the equivalent of the Stanley 49 and appears to be much less common that the Union 41. The Union 42 is designed to cut tongues and grooves in stock 3/8” to 3/4” thick, and centers its groove on stock...

Shop Tools #19: Stanley 140

09-27-2013 02:27 AM by WayneC | 10 comments »

Documenting the addition of another plane to the tool box. This one is a #140 Rabbet and block plane . They are pretty cool planes. One side of the plane can be removed for doing rabbet work on things like tenons. With the side on it can be used like a normal block plane. I’ve been looking for the right one for a while and also have been torn as to if I should get the Lie-Nielsen or stick with an old Stanley. This one is in pretty nice shape and it was about 1/3 the cost of the...

Tips for Designing and Finding Inspiration

09-14-2013 05:43 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 9 comments »

With the release of my latest article in WOOD magazine on design, it prompted more requests for a video on designing and how I find inspiration. In this video I share the lifestyle habits I have that allow me to keep finding inspiration, recording those ideas, and developing the designs. For an example, I share how I turned a Japanese torii gate into a stairwell barrier, bucking the standard design of newell posts, balusters, and handrail. While the subject of designing can get pretty d...

Wine, women and woodworking

09-06-2013 11:00 PM by Brad | 8 comments »

When I was a wee lad of four, my civil-engineering dad’s work took us to live in Puerto Rico. By the time we left, at age six, I took with me my (now long gone) vintage GI Joe and a fluency in Puerto Rican street Spanish. I’ve come to realize that I also brought home a love of travel. The never-ending wonder of new places, new people, new customs, new foods, new vistas and climates gives me a rush to this very day. And so it was on a recent wine tasting trip to Walla Walla, Washington, a r...
