Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 18 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Kiefers Little Tapper build

10-01-2014 02:38 PM by kiefer | 23 comments »

http://lumberjocks.com/projects/106249Here is the the build process of the little tapper that I use.I start by sourcing most pieces I need from the scrap bin and cutting them to size .Next I mark out the centre layer of the head and cut it into three pieces using my sled on the table saw .Note the little handy bevel gauge that my buddy Paul http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright made for me and it is just a great little tool .If you look back in my projects you will find the post of my sled http:...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #2: Beginnings

10-02-2014 01:07 AM by shipwright | 16 comments »

I put a lot of thought into what the first project would be for my fine sawn veneer before I decided on this particular idea. I would have to say there was also a lot of “putting it off” involved but once the project had been chosen the next question was where to start. I wanted the piece to have interest in both decoration and in function (hence the cantilevered drawers) so before anything else I had to make sure the mechanics were sound. Here are a few shots of the hinge comp...

Tweaks #1 #2: Tweaks to my Fremont Bed Done

09-14-2014 10:51 PM by Darrell Peart | 11 comments »

Several months ago I posted a proposed design change to the cap rail on my Fremont Bed. At the time, there was a mixed reaction to this. The bed has finally made it to the current spot on my schedule and is now ready to go the finisher. Seeing the bed in “real life” makes it easier to visualize the results. For an easy comparison lets start here with three images from my original post.On the left is the revision – on the right is the original detail While the original design...

A slight variation on Shipwright hinges

07-23-2014 02:18 AM by BobAnderton | 3 comments »

Shipwright showed how to make these cool integral wooden hinges for a box in this tutorial. http://lumberjocks.com/shipwright/blog/23989 I liked them a lot but it required planning ahead and cutting the hinge features in the back of the box before assembly. I wanted to be able to assemble a box and cut the lid off with the tablesaw and have the choice of making an integral hinge or using brass hinges later so I developed this slight variation. An example of the finished hinge is this pro...

Making an Infill Pocket Plane #1: Introduction

07-01-2014 01:47 PM by Ripthorn | 6 comments »

It’s been a while since I’ve made a plane, and recently I decided I should start one. This one is going to be what I am calling a pocket plane. It is smaller than a standard block plane, with the idea being that often I want to put a chamfer on a piece or smooth down a very small area and a regular block plane is too large. This one is not my original design, it is a blatant rip off of Malcolm MacPherson’s mouse plane (pictures make the name self explanatory). I drew up ...

Hi I am back again!I have been lurking in the back ground admiring all the great work for some time now as house renovations took priority, that is nearing an end and I am soon to get back into the workshop. The club I am in has some amazingly talented people and one of them has sent this link here and another hereI am not sure if these websites have been posted before but it has given me some wonderful inspiration to get going again. I am in awe of these master craftsmen of the past. A...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Making a toted coffin smoother

06-06-2014 12:26 AM by Wally331 | 14 comments »

Pics will be on in a few min- will edit when I’ve got em all, hang in there ;) After making my small cherry smoother which worked great, I decided I wanted to up my game and build a more traditional styled plane. I also wanted it to be toted and have a harder wood for the sole of the plane. I chose to use cherry again because it’s what I had and it is very beautiful. For the sole I chose purpleheart- mostly because its what I had, but its also extremely hard and it is actua...

The Basement #42: Building ZCI's with a homemade pin router for the '113 TS

05-21-2014 10:07 PM by JL7 | 14 comments »

This has been on the list for awhile now. I’ve built ZCI’s in the past from Oak and Masonite but overtime they have issues. I got my hands on a Leecraft ZCI for my Craftsman 113 TS and was blown away at how nice it was. So all the design credit here goes to Leecraft, here’s a picture: The Leecraft doesn’t use the front hold down screw that comes standard on this saw, rather, they use 2 horizontal screws (one in front and one on the right side). You tweak...
