Lie-Nielsen Beveled Edge Socket Chisels

Lie-Nielsen Beveled Edge Socket Chisels

I tried one 1/2” chisel to see what the brand was all about. Now I have a 5 pc set with 2 skews and a fishtail. And a few planes as well. they take an edge and hold it well. I have no complaints about the tool or the price

Lie-Nielsen no 2

Lie-Nielsen no 2

After watching this video https://youtu.be/56DpxEOpxz0 I decided to get a no2 to use as a block plane to help control tearout issues I was having my block and to use on smaller pieces. Haven’t had it long but it’s everything I wanted.

Lie-Nielsen no 4 1/2 with 55 degree frog

My first LN plane I bought it with a 55 degree frog to work heavily figured and prone to tear out. It’s been a dream. Works just as good on straight grained wood as well.

The Guide To End All

The Guide To End All

Ever used one of those eclipse style sharpening guides? Usually they’re cheesy imports that require serious fine-tuning and modification to be effective. What if a fine tool company like Starrett or the like were to make a honing guide? Well, that’s basically what you have here. I’ve used a couple different honing guides in my day. The eclipse was a waste. Good luck setting various blades and chisels straight in that one. The Veritas MKII is a very nice guide, but eventually I set...

Lie Nielson #51 plane

Completed the new shooting board to go with my new plane from LN using the plans that came with the plane. As soon as the board was finished I started grabbing various pieces of scrap to try out the new plane. The 51 is heavy, the momentum helps move the plane with skewed blade through all types of wood with ease. Included in my testing today were pieces of Mahogany, Hard Maple, QSWO, and pine. Without any additional sharpening the plane cut through all wood end grain with ease. Should hav...

View on YouTube I love to use my hand planes. For a while I’ve been wanting a smoothing plane that was smaller then my No. 4. I finally pulled the trigger and bought a Lie-Nielsen No. 2. This is my review of the plane after using it for a few weeks in my shop.

flattening a table top

flattening a table top

05-06-2015 05:57 AM by Andy Block | 9 comments »

A young friend of mine works in lumber sales and had been setting aside some nicely figured maple for me. When he delivered it I asked him what he and his new wife would like made for them. After consulting with a higher authority he said a coffee table, which was perfect as that was about as far as the wood would go. After doing the glue up I was having a tough time getting the table top flat as each board seemed to have developed a mind of it’s own. I went to visit a local tool...

This is a really preliminary review on this plane. I haven’t gotten a ton of time with it but I’ve taken a few passes with it just to try things out. I’ve been wanting a No 7 for quite a while and I’ve been on the hunt at every antique store I drive by and on Craigslist. I know you can get one on eBay but I’ve been screwed over in the past there so I’m pretty leery of buying on there. I also just for the heck of it threw this Lie-Nielson on my amazon wish l...

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

Lie-Nielson Large Scraper Plane

I am working on a project which I have incorporated a piece of figured oak. Even with a blade with a fresh and carefully honed edge in my smoothing plane I could not prevent tear out on the board. I ordered the scraping plane specifically for the purpose of preparing the surface of this figured wood. The #112 finish is perfect and the blade thickness is substantial. While waiting for the delivery of the #112 I watched the LN video on setting up this plane. The video is essential as the dir...
