Free Wooden Smoothing Plane Plans

04-27-2013 05:57 PM by Caleb James | 10 comments »

So here we go again. It looks like you folks are having fun making some wooden planes so lets add to the fun. Here is a great little coffin shaped smoother for your collection. This is a fantastic size and a great introduction to making a wooden bench plane. The construction of the parts is a very typical arrangement and the size of wood needed to make this is much easier to find. Here are the plans in several different layouts. The download has four pages. First one is for shop reference ...

Old Danish hobby workbenchcroissants, espresso and beer… No into needed, so let’s jump right into the story: This blog starts in my small kitchen back home. So it could be about croissants and espresso or a few of my handmade knifes… Or of friends like Flemming that show up and bring joy in my life. I’ll give you a clue, if you did not read the headline… My friend Flemming left, so we will talk about the stranger in the kitchen…Yes I guess...

1953 Delta Milwaukee 14" Band Saw Restoration #1: Introduction

08-28-2015 05:51 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I should preface this blog with a note about myself. I recently shed most of my power tools in favor of old hand tools, like Stanley Planes, Disston saws, and old Braces/Bits and eggbeater drills. This was around December of 2014 (about 9 months ago as of this writing). The two power tools I decided to keep in the shop were a band saw and a drill press. Problem was, I didn’t own a band saw (at least not a decent one). So the search began. I hemmed and hawed about it, researched, a...

Planning "Steps" for a Carved Story Stick, "The Gospel" Commissioned Walking Cane

06-03-2008 04:08 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 9 comments »

My recent lumberjock postings of the walking cane work I have done recently has brought a lot of interest from folks wanting me to build them special, unique, elaborately detailed, walking canes and sticks. This new blog communicates the design process on one cane as I prepare to start the carving, and get approvals on the final design. The customer is a Youth Pastor, and needs to use a tall walking cane to support a bad knee. He and I have been designing this project for several weeks...

Someone wanted to be cursed, someone needed to be nursed

05-31-2011 10:38 AM by Sodabowski | 18 comments »

Well today the postsman took me out of bed with an unexpected parcel. Having nothing pending from ebay, I was wondering WTH it was and whom it could come from. At first sight, something a bit heavy, tightly packed in bubblewrap. Okay let’s open that box. And then… GAH! Mads strikes again! And now I see why he had told me that I would curse him hahaha :D This old chap really needs some caring, everything is rusted, even the bolts inside the handles.No problem, I ha...

Old Clamps #1: Antique or Old Clamps

05-06-2013 07:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’ve been keeping an eye on a popular auction website for old wood clamps. I’m not buying them, but I like to look at them. Sometimes I see one that looks particularly interesting or unique. Often look look very similar in design. I’m going to occasionally post pictures of interesting clamps I see. Some of these might give us ‘homemade clamp’ aficionados some ideas. Universal disclaimer, I’m not meaning to advertise for these items. I’m not lin...

Old Clamps #3: Home Style bar clamps

05-26-2013 08:35 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

These two bar clamps look home built. The top one has a slide mechanism built in for the push jaw. I’ve never seen that before. The turning crank also looks home produced, especially as it consists of a threaded rod and a large nail. The bottom one definitely looks light duty. The screw jaw looks a bit flimsy and the turning knob might not bring enough torque to bear for strong pressure. Still, an interesting specimen.

'This Old Crack House' #46: The Addition part one ...

07-15-2007 11:29 PM by Dusty | 7 comments »

Selling our existing house was the only major hurtle that had to be overcome before building an addition onto “This Old Crack House”. Coincidently, I’ve held a tool-sale every January in the stain shop. I would sell excess tools. These were refurnished tools that had been replaced with a newer model. Often various manufactures would ask me to test new models and give them feedback. For the most part, they would not expect the tool back at the end of the test and the tool was ours to d...

Contractor Saw Refurbishing #1: Good news: I got it home. Bad news: Now I have to do something with it!

10-01-2007 05:01 AM by slaphitter | 4 comments »

I found an old, well-worn Jet contractor saw locally through Craigslist. It came with a Delta Unifence, so even with some replacement parts and repairs factored in, I got it for a steal at $175. It was quite a job to horse it home by myself, but with the help of an appliance dolly I managed to get it out of its old basement and into my basement. I thought it might be fun for someone if I occasionally post updates here. And I certainly welcome all the tips and suggestions that anyone mig...
