Hand jointing walnut yesterday...need to remember to take pics

08-07-2011 04:03 AM by SSMDad | 4 comments »

I finally had a chance to use my “new” Stanley #32 jointer plane yesterday on some walnut I’m using as the sides for my son’s soon to be hanging bookshelf. The shavings were amazing and it didn’t take long to get a straight (and very smooth) edge on the board (4/4). It probably would have been easier and quicker to have used the table saw to joint the other side but I was having so much fun doing it by hand that I kept going. This plane has really impressed me...

Tool Overview #3: Going Plane Crazy...

10-19-2010 01:16 PM by David Craig | 15 comments »

Well, it would appear that I am sliding a little further down the slippery slope. I can see where, once you get started down a certain road, it is a little difficult to get off of it. A little over a month ago, my plane collection consisted of nothing, nada, zip. Now I have four, and tomorrow I am expecting the shipment of number five. It started innocently enough. I received a block plane as a thank you/birthday gift. I like mechanical things. I am a little slow on the take sometimes, but...

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

A trip to Lie Nielsen...

The following is excerpted from my blog, The Renaissance Woodworker. I hope you enjoy it. We had less than perfect weather this year in Maine and while it made for bad kayaking and sun bathing, it was great for a pilgrimage to Warren, ME. Just up the road from the world famous Moody's diner you see that telltale red roof come into view. When you first step through the door into the showroom, you cannot help but take a deep breath and sigh. It is a beautiful showroom done in all h...

Tool Restoration #1: The New Series Intro

01-28-2008 11:15 PM by Tomcat1066 | 16 comments »

Well, now, most of my work lately has been tool restoration and rehab. As such, it’s not really woodworking, but not not woodworking either, since these are woodworking tools. Some of you have seen my Disston and my back saw. I’m pretty proud of both of those. But here’s a tool you guys haven’t had a chance to see yet. This is a DE7. Sounds odd, but it’s just a #7 jointer plane put out by Shapleigh’s Hardware. I picked this up for $19.99 on ebay. ...
