Tuning Molding Planes

03-03-2022 08:24 PM by Oldtool | 4 comments »

I’m between projects & needing something to do I decided to start back into tuning up some molding planes. I’ve collected a few molding & old wooden planes, which I put into working condition – in the hopes of using them to make my projects. I do as little as possible in this process, keeping as much of the original condition as I can, but still making them useful. I started with a Sash Plane that came missing one iron of two. Fortunately, the missing iron has a s...

Woodworking Table Saw Blades: Thin Kerf Better for Heavy Rips?

02-25-2022 10:02 PM by woodshopnerdery | 6 comments »

My Shopsmith table saw has a 1 and 1/8 HP motor. Many woodworking resources recommend full kerf blades for table saws rated at 3 or more horsepower and thin kerf blades for table saws rated less than 3 horsepower. So, I was lead to believe that thin kerf blades would work best. But in practice, I could not detect any performance difference other than the thin kerf blades left behind more saw marks. In this video I attempt to quantify the performance difference between a 24 tooth thin kerf rip...

More Reliable Wooden Planes

02-20-2022 10:54 PM by jonoseph | 9 comments »

One drawback with wooden planes is the effect of hard knots and how they can dislodge the wedge and blade . Modern metal planes have robust designs and solid metal parts to cope with sudden shocks like hitting a knot . I had to make sure that the wedges fitted well and checked the blade wedge especially. The Sorby blade was quite thick on one side and that had to be ground to get both sides accurate . So all good wedges were in place. The main idea was to improve the friction between the bot...

compass rose ceiling detail #5: Making the ceiling trim and adding lights.

02-09-2022 09:00 PM by grosa | 1 comment »

This ceiling trim is also Sepele. We use the original template we made at the beginning to get the inside cut on the pin router. Then we make a jig and attach it to the jig saw to get the outside radius.There are two screws on the inside of the fence. The trick is to keep both screws touching the inside radius while the blade cuts the outside radius, harder to do than it sounds. Once the inside and outside radius is cut we sand it smooth and route the same profile on both sides. Next...

Small Projects #56: Walnut End Table Done

12-05-2021 04:30 AM by Madmark2 | 5 comments »

After the success of the walnut air filter cabinet SWMBO decided she really liked walnut and asked for a matching end table. Top. I hate sharp corners. I tend to carom off things and I can’t count how many times I’ve been gouged by sharp corners. The top is 24” sq and made from a glueup of four 7/8” x 6” (actual) boards. The edges are routed and corners rounded. Leg Pairs. I started with six, 1×6 x 2’ S2S boards. Cleaned one edge and ripped...

Back to building boxes #2: Finger Joints?

11-23-2021 01:08 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Ok…a little layout, first… Marking gauge, set to the thickness of the boards…mark all the way around…then darken the lines so I can SEE….take the 2 longer side to the bench vise, and grab the chisel.. That will be doing the chopping. Step off from the sides towards the middle…then a combo square to carry those lines around.. Then set one of the sides aside for now…lower the other in the vise,,,and make a bit of saw dust.. Can ...

Fancy Corners, for a box #5: Bad lid, good lid

10-23-2021 01:37 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

The more I looked at that lid…the less I liked it. Even a coat of stain didn’t help all that much.. Giving off “Casket” vibes….did NOT really fit the rebates , either… In the Dungeon Shop, we try to be “Mistake-free” so, any mistakes are very soon headed to the Fire Pit…Lid was too thick, rebates weren’t right…removed both…rebates took a couple passes, being stubborn? And a second try… Was taking a bl...

Time to get “Groovy” The other one seems to have thought I said something abo...

Automated table saw fence and router table #3: Updating the Control App with a saw blade library

08-08-2021 01:12 AM by DocWithManyHats | 0 comments »

I updated my control app a little while ago to include a saw blade library. This way it can automatically figure out kerf and distance to the blade when cutting on either side of the blade. I just have to set it up once when getting a new blade and it does the rest. I updated how to tune offset positions and home positions depending on left/right side of table saw blade or router. The checkbox changes the fence coordinate system ( positive or negative when moving left or right) and takes t...
