"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

"Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design"

01-21-2010 06:12 PM by thewoodwhisperer | 5 comments »

When it comes to woodworking, I often feel like I am working my way backwards. I was proficient with a tablesaw before I picked up my first handsaw. I knew my way around a drum sander before learning how to use a smoothing plane. And perhaps most disturbingly, I was creating and building my own furniture before I knew anything about design. Heck, who am I kidding? I still know nothing about design! I know what I think looks good and I follow a few basic rules, but more often than not I ...

A very versatile block plane

A very versatile block plane

01-22-2008 04:17 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 4 comments »

This Skewed Block Plane can be used for many operations. It can be used to work on end-grain, like a standard block plane. It has a fence and nicker so that you can work on tenons and rabbets. The nicker can be moved so that it is engaged or not. I’ve used it to clean up some tenons and it work beautiful. The skew blade really helps to reduce tear-out when going across the grain. I haven’t added an auxiliary fence to mine yet, but it’s coming soon. It come in Iron o...

This is a must have DVD for every wookworker..It's not just for furniture designers

09-30-2011 11:16 PM by Angela | 4 comments »

I’m about finished making my TV stand. During the construction of the top, I thought there must be some formula to determine the overhang of the top. When I asked this question on LJ, I received a variety of answers but nothing with a formula. Since asking this question and designing my TV stand I came across a DVD produced by Lie-Nielsen called Unlocking the Secrets of Traditional Design. It discusses the proportions of furniture and how to determine the proportions of a piece of furnitur...

Another manly man video

Another manly man video

10-13-2011 11:28 PM by WayneC | 4 comments »

In this video, Rob covers taking a piece of rough lumber to finished state. The topic covered is similar to Chris Schwarz’s Course, Medium and Fine. One key item that distinguishes this video is Rob’s use of the scrub plane. This is one of the few videos I have seen where this plane is used fairly extensively. Most other folks I have seen use a jack plane for this work…. He spent to me what was an amazing amout of time getting one face flat enough to work. He used ...

Lie Nielsen block plane

Lie Nielsen block plane

09-27-2013 07:24 AM by Purrmaster | 4 comments »

This review is for the Lie Nielsen small bronze block plane. I’m pretty sure I got the low angle one. This plane is great. The Stanley Sweetheart block plane I have was ok but this thing is leagues ahead of it. It’s a dinky little critter with a 1 1/4 inch blade. Mine is made of bronze, though iron ones are available. The plane is perfectly made. The sides are perfectly square to the sole and the sole is flat as a pancake. The blade is nice and thick, especially for ...

A Different League

A Different League

12-14-2012 08:19 PM by mcase | 3 comments »

Well I finally did it and got a Lie-Nielsen. I wasn’t planning on getting the bronze, but they were temporarily out of the iron so I sprung for it. I like the weight in a smoother anyway and it looks totally cool too. What can I say? Its in a whole different league than my previous purchases. I didn’t have to touch this plane. It was ready to go: flat sole, all the edges eased, flat and square blade, the chip breaker was square and true (and long enough), no slop on in the depth ...

Lie-Nielson curved bottom spokeshave.  Very Nice!

Lie-Nielson curved bottom spokeshave. Very Nice!

12-15-2012 07:43 PM by mbs | 3 comments »

I’ve used this spoke shave for about a year now. I really like it for sculpting the front of a seat or the leg of a chair. The edge has stayed nice and sharp. It’s easy to set the blade depth too. Very comfortable to use. I think I paid $100 and now they’re $135. That’s pretty steep but it’s a good tool. I think LN is in competition with Veritas to see who can raise the prices the fastest. I wish I would have bought more of both brands when they were...

One Amazing Jointer

One Amazing Jointer

This #7 was my most recent purchase. It’s one big plane! I’ve used it to flatten some boards that I had ran through my thickness planer. These boards were being laminated together so the surfaces needed to be very flat. You would think a board coming out of a power planer would be flat. A few passes with the #7 shows you that board is far from flat. It also easily removes the snipe you can get with a power planer. The quality of this tool is outstanding. Lie-Nielsen also...

Very Nice - Very Small Bench Plane

Very Nice - Very Small Bench Plane

02-29-2008 11:37 PM by RickH | 2 comments »

I picked up this Lie-Nielsen #1 bench plane several weeks ago at Woodcraft on sale, intrigued by it’s small size and quality. It is the first Lie-Nielsen plane I own (though I have a number of Veritas) and as you would expect from either of these brands it is extremely well made. With it’s brass body and maple handles it is almost too nice to use as a tool – it looks that nice. It is based on the famous Stanley No. 1, 5½” (14cm) long with a 1-3/16” (3cm) x ....
