Sharpening 101 for Newbies- What Should I Use? #1: Sharpening Methods I've Tried

03-04-2013 01:53 PM by BigRedKnothead | 22 comments »

Early on, a woodworker is forced to decide upon a sharpening system or product. And I know we have some folks on Ljs who are just entering the wonderful world of hand tools. This is my attempt to not leave those people hangin when it comes to sharpening. Clearly, planes and chisels are just handsome paperweights if they’re not sharp.Let me start by saying that I am far from an expert. Shoot I’ve only been using and sharpening hand tools effectively for about a year. I spent the pr...

wood inlay with rock and resin #1: this is my technique

08-30-2010 11:19 PM by rusticandy | 6 comments »

Hello. Here’s my disclaimer! Let me start by saying: wear respirator protection throughout this whole process! This is dangerous dusty work, and I claim no responsibly for what you do with this information. This is just an account of what I do. It took me awhile to figure out the inlay piece, and I’m more than willing to share what I’ve learned. Ive attached rock crushers and a pic of resin and rock on a scrap to my projects section- im just not up to speed on this HTM...

Perhaps the video way is a better one but this blog is for free ;) When I can improve my method please let me know, I am al...

Making an Adjustable Try Square is a pretty staight forward build, here are the parts: I chose rosewood for the handle, approx. 4” X 1/12” 1/2” Some brass, 5/16” rod,1/4” rod and 1” flat stock (about 1/16”)Brass inserts and screws 8-23 X 1 1/2” long. The handle must be flat and square if you want a square that is square on both the inside and outside reference. Check the width with calipers and get it exactly the same on each end, then...

Planes restored - Because I can. #9: Plane Restoration, roll it together with a Millers Falls #10

09-15-2011 03:27 AM by Don W | 30 comments »

So, I bought this bunch of planes in this pile which is shown with all the other weekend finds. Included at the bottom of the pile was this Millers Falls #10. NOTE: This blog is not a suggestion to strip every plane and repaint. I actually would suggest otherwise if the japanning is in reasonable condition. Some are not savable and I don’t like tools that look terrible. If you can save it, I’d recommend that. If not, strip it. I figured since this plane needed almost any...

bloodwood jewelry box #1: Ogee bracket feet

04-02-2010 12:14 PM by Walt M. | 4 comments »

I got the cove cut on the tablesaw, my first time to try this. Even though I took several passes at the final depth there was a lot of sanding to do( I would have liked to use a scrapper but don’t have one yet). I cut out a piece of 2×4 (the opposite profile) on the band saw for a sanding block. I also decide to use miniature ogee bracket feet. Making them would be a blog entry by it self as it took several steps to make them The little ding on the corner was some chipout...

Stickley / Jeff Jewitt Arts and Crafts Finish

04-15-2013 01:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 14 comments »

I wanted to recreate this Jeff Jewitt finish from Fine Woodworking #157, however the article didn’t list which formula was used. I consulted with Jeff, and it was Transtint Brown Mohogany dye, followed by McCloskeys Walnut stain. McClosky no longer makes stain, but sold to Valspar / Cabot. ---So I set out to make a sample board to achieve the rich, dark color I was after. ---The top colors are stain only, the middle colors are dye first then stain, and the bottom color is dye only. ...

A slight variation on Shipwright hinges

07-23-2014 02:18 AM by BobAnderton | 6 comments »

Shipwright showed how to make these cool integral wooden hinges for a box in this tutorial. 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...
