Shop stuff #189: Fancy root veggie bin part 3

05-23-2020 12:57 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Oh my! A lot of work to get very little done. Mistakes are made and not for the last time. Oh well, we work our way through them. This series contains measurements and descriptions and suggestions of alternate methods so you can build this thing yourself. It is a pretty long and detailed series, but I hope I am editing enough to make it entertaining. I think every woodworker will have experienced some errors in their work. I wanted to convey the same situation and not have this series ...

Block plane box #1: Why a box?

05-12-2020 01:42 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well….I do have a couple block planes still with their oem boxes…Not sure I’d do something like that one. The other box is a bit ratty… And it will only hold one plane…but…Thought I could resaw the scrap Pine boards in the shop, down to 1/4” thick, and make a few boxes to store some of my block plane “collection” in….have 14 ( last count) but maybe just the better ones will get their own little box… Some of the resaws&#...

Grinding jig #1: Build your own Tormek equivalent SVG-38 jig

05-10-2020 04:23 PM by Pheroz | 1 comment »

I am in the process of creating my own Worksharp sharpener. I have carved wood in the past, and wanted to improve my sharpening system. Presently I am using low, med, high diamond stones. In gathering the parts need for the DIY worksharp parts and in carving the Tormek jig SVG-38 was essential . I could purchase it, but my late dads voice kept bugging me ” ... have you tried it ”. So here I am venturing to the challenge of making my own SVG-38. I started of by designing...

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process.

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

Wall Hanging Plane Tray

05-04-2020 02:48 PM by carrera4s | 2 comments »

I recently built a wall hanging plane tray to store my hand planes on the wall. It has a bracket at the top and bottom to hold the plane. It simply slides in and drop down to stay in place. And simply lift up and out to remove. It’s made from shutterply backing board and African Rosewood off-cuts. The brackets are lined with suede leather to protect the paint / japanning. The empty slots are for planes that are still in the cupboard waiting to be restored. Stanleys and a Luban o...

A NEW, Improved Saw Til #8: a door for the til, part 2

05-04-2020 03:51 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Not getting as much shoptime, right now…other things keep getting in the way. Needed a top and bottom for the door, once the door was out of the clamps. They needed to go between the side pieces I cut out, earlier. Needed a square cut, and cut to fit Swung this back to 90 degrees. The bottom was just a 1×1…the top was a 1×4. The 1×4 needed a bevel, to match the sides…..we have ways.. Stanley No. 12-004, Made in England…aka No. 4c. made...
