Do you want to own and restore gorgeous antique tools that were made so well that they’ll be around for your great grandchildren to use? I’m Joshua Farnsworth, and I have fallen in lo...

shop made tools #2: Panel Raising Plane.

962 days ago by Don W | 14 comments »

I’ve bid on some panel raising planes but the prices always seem to be out of reach. I decided to convert a wood bodied plane I had restored a while ago. This is the plane I started with. I cut a groove on the side toward the raised panel and sharpened the blade on that side as well. I cut it on the table saw and finished it up with my new Veritas shoulder plane. I added a nicker to cut the line around the panel. I tried it without it and got some fur on softwood...

Building a Dr. White's Chest #5: Case Legs

482 days ago by DustyMark | 3 comments »

Case Legs Watch this video to view the leg construction and track my progress on the face frame. I like legs that are cut in two planes on a tall case like Dr. White’s chest. This gives the legs a more fully formed look. I used a wider lower rail with a mortise and tenon joint at the base of the face frame rather than a narrow piece with a dovetail joint. Our vacuum floor attachment will still reach under the face of the case to suck up dust balls! The sides of the original Dr. Whit...

Building a Traditional Wooden Boat #2: Lofting

1901 days ago by MattD | 8 comments »

After about 12 hours of work, nearly all lofting is complete and I can finally start some construction! The famous boat builder and author, Howard I. Chapelle wrote in his aptly named book ”Boatbuilding” – ”There was never a boat built in which too much lofting had been done”. By lofting, Mr. Chapelle is referring to the laying out of the lines and drawing of construction details to full scale, a tedious practice he writes ”avoids much trying and fitting...

"5 Minute Gnome" Tutorial

654 days ago by mpounders | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a lot of Santas for the holidays and usually have a booth setup on December 1st hopefully to sell a few things. I wanted to have something I could carve on, as a demonstration or a small give-away for kids. I started looking at the 5 minute wizards, but decided to change it up a bit. These could be either gnomes or elves, but they’re really just a wizard with feet and a little carving on the back for arms and clothes and such. I still haven’t gotten ...
