African Rosewood, Leadwood and Maple Workbench build #1: Workbench Base Finished

06-12-2020 09:14 AM by carrera4s | 2 comments »

I am busy building a split top Roubo workbench and have recently finished the base. The base is built from some left-over African Rosewood I had, while the top will be Hard Maple. The vices and sliding deadman will be made from Leadwood. Next up is installing some retractable castors and then the DIY screw for the leg and wagon vices. Stay tuned for those updates! Here are a few pictures of the process so far. Glue-up on the laminated legs: Squaring up the legs after lamina...

Wooden Jack Plane Restoration

12-03-2019 05:55 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

I have had this jack plane for a couple months now. It has been sitting there in the dark corner waiting for repairs. The body on this plane was pretty good shape, but the iron was rusty and it had no tote. I have no beech wood or apple wood so I went to my local woodworking shop and just picked up a chunk of lumber for $5. This is the second tote I have made and this one turned out 150% better than the last one. I did however break the first one due to a crack that I didn’t see. I used...

If anyone has any info on this Plane, please help

03-30-2019 04:28 PM by Bigmikeyg | 8 comments »

Hi guys and gals, I just recently acquired this beautiful wooden plane but there are no markings anywhere on the wood, brass, or blade. I am planning on sharpening it up and using it but first I would like a little info on it and possibly its value. That won’t change the fact that I will be using it, but I may be a little, shall we say, less aggressive, with it if it’s valuable… I love the dovetailed brass on the bottom. Please see pictures.

How to dimension lumber with handtools #3: Reference Edge

09-13-2018 01:48 PM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

Now that the reference face is established we move on to the reference edge. I first visualize the low and high spots and using my jack plane begin to bring down the high spots to meet the low spots. Once the edge is fairly flat, I check for flatness using my reference. Once flat, I turn my attention to assuring I have a 90 degree edge. Using a combination of the jack plane, jointers plane and smoothing plane I fine tune the edge until it is flat and square to the reference face. I mark the e...

I started a new video series tonight on how to dimension lumber using only hand tools.

The tools I am currently using are the Stanley Sweetheart #4, Stanley #62 low angle jack plane, Stanley Bailey #7, A square, Stanley marking knife, Wood river marking gauge and 3 foot long measuring stick. It is a little slow but a good work-out. My shaving pile his about a foot tall now. ...

I picked up this old no. 4 hand plane recently and thought I would show how I tune up an old plane and get it ready for use in my shop. I know there are a lot of different methods and ways to restore a plane so I thought I would share how I do it. Thanks for watching! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV0DfQRPxIs

Butterfly Spline inlay on a Kanna Dai

02-19-2018 03:24 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

This is a repair that is often done when a Kanna has a split or check in the wood. Rather than simply filling it with epoxy and/or superglue, it is way better to use a mechanical connection to repair the crack and ensure that it doesn’t expand or get worse in the following years. View on YouTube The key for these (literally) is to make the spline as strong as possible, and to ensure that it stays put, it does need to be glued in place. The maker of this dai is a gentleman named J...
