I would say a very good quality.As expected the plane was not ready at all out of the b...

E C Emmerich 649P Adjustable Block Plane

E C Emmerich 649P Adjustable Block Plane

05-25-2017 01:15 AM by RichTaylor | 7 comments »

I’ve had my eye on this plane on Amazon for quite a while. All of my block planes are low angle, and for a standard angle plane, I decided to go a different direction from my usual Lie Nielsen selections and ordered one. Here are my initial impressions. The plane arrived nicely boxed. On removing the plane from the box, the fit and finish were immediately apparent. My first step was to remove the blade and begin preparing it. It was actually extremely sharp to begin with, but I ...

What's a Mujingfang?

What's a Mujingfang?

01-10-2017 01:56 AM by Belford | 14 comments »

I own several types of woodworking planes. My German (ECE) planes are like driving a semi across a sheet of Rice Paper. My American planes (Stanley) are cantankerous until sharpened and set with an exacting procedure that I can never get exactly correct. My English (Record) planes are mere replicas of the American Stanley or vice versa. All have some good features and bad and for the most part get the job done. I don’t own any Japanese planes and therefore have no remark upon them. Now com...

Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

Handplane Shootout No. 4 in D flat Minor

11-16-2016 06:14 AM by WoodWorkLIFE | 9 comments »

Watch the Video if you don’t feel like reading. Please like, share, and subscribe View on YouTube I am a hybrid woodworker I suppose, I guess I am really a “get stuff done” woodworker. The electric planer is a thing of beauty for milling up gnarly grain and rough sawn stock. For fine tuning fits, getting smooth finish ready surfaces, and just general enjoyment you are bringing a hammer to brain surgery. There is nothing more rewarding in the shop than taking a good shaving with ...

Lee Valley Veritas Scraper Plane

Lee Valley Veritas Scraper Plane

09-12-2016 01:48 PM by PPK | 3 comments »

I have been using my new scraper plane on oak so far. I am very pleased with how it works. It is definitely the same concept as using a card scraper. It doesn’t remove nearly as much wood, nor remove wood as fast as a regular plane. However, for scraping and smoothing surfaces with funky grain, this is great. I read that others had a difficult time getting this thing to work. Either I’m lucky, or just that good – I had it scraping nice curlies within 5 minutes of unboxing...

I’ve used them on a set of chairs and some other odds and ends. The fit and finish of veritas stuff is top notch and these work as advertised.

Lie-Nielsen 40-1/2 Scrub Plane

Lie-Nielsen 40-1/2 Scrub Plane

I’ve been using a heavily cambered #5 as a scrub. It was ok. I looked for a 40-1/2 on eBay for awhile but got tired of waiting for a deal so I got the LN version. I’ve been happy with it so far. I kinda prefer it to a bench plane with a cambered iron.

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

Veritas skew rabbet block plane

07-18-2016 11:09 PM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

I wanted a skew rabbet plane for crossgrain rabbets and cleaning up tenon cheeks. This one fit the bill. It takes a lot of fettling at first but once it’s set it so easy to sharpen and get back to work. I’d definitely recommend it

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

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

07-18-2016 09:37 PM by TheFridge | 14 comments »

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.
