Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide

Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide

03-11-2014 02:21 PM by TheWoodenOyster | 21 comments »

Overall, the Veritas MKII leaves something to be desired and is not worth the price. There are three main issues that I found with the system: 1. Not so big of an issue: The time sacrifice it takes to setup is time better spent woodworking. It is isn’t terribly painful to set up, but it does take a few minutes to get going with it. 2. A little bit bigger issue: It is very difficult to get the chisel or plane iron in the jig at 90 degrees perfectly. Even using the equipment that...

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

02-29-2008 11:19 PM by RickH | 3 comments »

Owned this Veritas Apron plane for several weeks now, and like the other Veritas planes I have I found it to be extremely well made and a joy to use. This is one of the smallest I have in their line up, with only a 1 1/4” wide low angle, bevel up blade iron. It has a 5-1/2” x 1-3/4” ductile cast iron body for durability, and their great combination blade depth and blade angle adjuster. It is very comfortable to hold in your hand, and cuts very nicely. Ready to go rig...

Sweet Jig

Sweet Jig

06-02-2009 07:50 PM by Smeric28 | 18 comments »

Though i thought it was a little expensive when I bought it from woodcrafters I think this honing jig is awesome. I use the scary sharp system and it works great for it. the best part about this jig is that the guide you attach let’s you set a consistent square bevel every time. when you try it you’ll be surprised how far some of your chisels have gotten from spec. I found a few things about the jig confusing (the manual wasn’t very clear) so i’ll give you guys some...

awesome sculpting tool

awesome sculpting tool

04-12-2010 06:13 AM by JuniorJoiner | 3 comments »

I had never done sculpting until recently. but I have always wanted to try doing a sculpted seat. Everyone thinks maloof when they see a sculpted seat, but it seems it was common on many different styles. nakashima, windsor chairs. etc.so, I made a poplar blank , and started making a prototype.well. I did the rough shaping on the bandsaw, then clamped it together and started with a gouge and mallet.I am not that great at sharpening gouges, so I needed the mallet. after a few hours of sweating...

A fun joinery plane

A fun joinery plane

04-30-2008 06:23 AM by johnjoiner | 14 comments »

First off, I’ll point out that I have nothing to compare this to. I have never used any other plow plane, and have little experience with any other kinds of joinery planes. This is easy and fun to use. No tools are needed to do anything on this. Blade removal and all adjustments are toolless. The only thing I can think of to complain about is access to some of the knobs. I’d say I have average sized hands and fairly dexterous fingers. But I had trouble getting at the knob...

This is a short pictorial on setting up the Small Plow to cut T&Gs. This is a new-to-me plane, and I took a few pics as I was working out the kinks and having a little play. I hope this helps some of you. Link: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ToolReviews/AccessoryBladesfortheVeritasSmallPlow.html Regards from Perth Derek

All around great performer and then some

All around great performer and then some

10-13-2011 05:13 PM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I got this when it first came out a year or so ago as I wanted something that could handle rabbets and joinery’s edges and this one seemed like a jack of all trades when it comes to that. It is no replacement for a shoulder plane, but I figured I’d use it mostly as a block plane which will also allow me to address some edges, rabbets etc. The plane itself is a beautiful designed product and the materials and machining is superb – a real gem. it is very hefty and feels sol...

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

Veritas 1:6 Dovetail Saw Guide Model 05T02.01

01-09-2014 11:23 PM by Jerry | 8 comments »

I got this wonderful little guide for Christmas and just now had my first opportunity to try it out. It took me a couple of minutes to wrap my head around how it works, but once I did, I was pretty impressed. You set the clamp in one set of grooves for the tails, and then slide it off and set it into a second set of grooves for the pins. I say set of grooves, but that’s somewhat misleading. There are three grooves in all, but the center groove serves double duty and is used in both orie...

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

Anyone who has ever seen the movie “A Christmas Story” knows the elation of discovering that you had won a major prize. I have not had a new tool infiltrate my shop in a very long time. It would be even longer had I not won this plane from the Wood Talk Online podcast—thanks Marc and Matt. See, folks, if you aren’t listening to this podcast, YOU SHOULD BE! Even a guy who never wins a thing can win something over-the-top cool! Okay: on to the plane (thank God it ...

Veritas jointer fence

Veritas jointer fence

03-29-2014 04:35 PM by naked_wookie | 4 comments »

I recently picked up the veritas jointer fence from lee valley to use with my low angle jack plane to joint some 6/4 walnut for my wifes desk.I am fairly new to hand tools and with that I am not the steadiest when prepping boards edges yet.This fence changed that. I was able to joint the entire 7 foot length of my boards smoothly and nice and square.The instructions for this tool are very clear and explain what to do if your planes wings aren’t square to the sole.Thankfully mine is so t...
