Square Joints with a Hand Plane

Square Joints with a Hand Plane

1888 days ago by CreekWoodworker | 8 comments »

I’ve had trouble getting perfectly square leg tapers and joints with my hand planes so decide to try out the Veritas Jointer Fence sold by Lee Valley. I was a little leery of it since it is attached to the side of a hand plane by magnets …can magnets really hold or will the fence pop off with every swipe? It comes with a stop that screw that fits into pre-drilled threaded holes in the fence (NO holes or screws into the plane). There are two sets of stop positions in front and...

Sweet Jig

Sweet Jig

1914 days ago 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...

Nothing plain about this plane!

Nothing plain about this plane!

2008 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 16 comments »

This is my 1000th post so I thought I should make it special; so I will write about a great plane my great wife gave me for my birthday (its actually on Sunday but we were in Winnipeg visiting my brother and his wife so we had an impromptu birthday party there). Any way this is of course a Lee Valley tool and you can go to their web page for dimensions etc. I’ll just write about my impression of the tool. First off is the heft of the tool, its got a good solid feel to it and the tote...

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

It was shades of "A Christmas Story"

2132 days ago by Texasgaloot | 12 comments »

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 ...

Table works great though installation is finicky

Table works great though installation is finicky

2159 days ago by JLYoung | 8 comments »

I ordered this router table insert plate on a Thursday afternoon and received it on Monday afternoon which I think is an excellent delivery time. The shipment arrived well packaged with everything in it. The instructions to install this thing are very detailed and laid out in a logical step by step manner, which though very complex and daunting upon first review, became quite logical once you take the time to follow the instruction procedure. It took me quite a bit of time to get this plat...

Be careful when using this product

Be careful when using this product

2265 days ago by PurpLev | 17 comments »

Be careful when using this product because it’ll help you get your blades so sharp you could cut yourself by holding them by the handle… This tool is remarkably simple to use and accurate. I especially like the quick micro-bevel setup. If you are not sharpening blades on a regular bases so that you are comfortable holding them at the precise angel you want them while sharpening – this guide will double and triple the value of your blade! I am the weekend warrior, and a...

A fun joinery plane

A fun joinery plane

2312 days ago 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...

Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools

Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools

2372 days ago by tomfidgen | 7 comments »

I first purchased the set of five Detail Chisels from Lee Valley Tools a little over a year ago and can say I’ve used them on an almost daily basis ever since. My first impression when they arrived via Mail-order was the size. They’re small, extremely light and almost hobby like. Being used to chopping out mortises and cutting dovetails with heavier European style chisels, I decided to give the Detail Chisels a try and was pleasantly surprised by what I discovered. Using Chisels with only han...

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

Great Small In-Your-Hand Plane

2373 days ago 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...
