Around The Shop.. #5: Organizing the new shop.. Hanging Tools up Finally!

06-09-2021 06:24 AM by Airframer | 7 comments »

It’s been a busy couple of days here in the shop. I am trying to get all my tools in a spot of their own so I can then go through them and get them cleaned up (again). Over the past 5 years of being stored in a drafty barn they have all acquired a nice coating of surface rust that needs dealing with but before I can do that I need to be able to see them and have a spot to put them away afterwards. That has been my focus so far this week and I am nearly done with finding homes for all...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #2: Bring on the planes

06-08-2021 10:10 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Time to flatten the boards a bit.. Clamped the narrower of the longer boards into the vise…run a jack plane across to knock down the high spots.. A “Before & After”....and then after the other half was done… Not too bad? Set #2?!https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/quel2cp.jpg!Jointed the edges a bit.. There was a beltsander in use, as well…Set #3 took a bit more work… Decided to use the tablesaw, and trim this up as a 4-square,...

Around The Shop.. #4: Space is Clean! Time to get organized!

06-07-2021 07:42 AM by Airframer | 5 comments »

Well today was a pretty productive day in the “new” shop space. I was able to get the space fully cleared out and swept. Then emptied all the boxes of tools and parts etc onto all the table spaces so I can see what I have to put away and nothing is being hidden inside a box. The most exciting part was finally getting my roubo workbench in place and cleaned up. I will need to resurface the top but need to get my planes tuned up and sharp first. Otherwise it is holding strong...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #3: Look - I Used a New Body Paint

06-06-2021 05:22 PM by HokieKen | 16 comments »

Well, I said I probably wouldn’t blog about painting this one since I covered my process pretty thoroughly in this old blog entry. However, I did some things differently this time around and thought it warranted a quick entry to document. I decided to take some cues from Sansoo22's process since he does such a great job on his planes. I had planned to bake my plane the way he does but then decided against that since it’s too big for my shop oven and I didn’t want my wif...

June 2021, leftover scraps of Ash, Box Project, maybe #1: Resaw work to start

06-03-2021 07:27 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

6 decent sized leftovers, problem being they are too thick…..3/4” would be nice for a large project….but not for a fancy little box. Solution would be to resaw them to 3/8” thickness. bandsaw more or less refuses such a job…..leaves more waves than the Mid Atlantic Ocean….hmmm Ok, set up the rip fence on the tablesaw, and raise the blade as high as it can go…. Blade is 8-1/4”, that is all the saw can handle…boards are a might wi...

A Table for the Gazebo #8: Time for a PIP

05-31-2021 01:08 AM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Once things were sanded and planed smooth..was time for a coat of stain to be brushed on…. Some spots needed a bit more than others…..wasn’t just a plane, or a sander used.. I also gave the Stanley No. 80 a little work. Each of these 3 tools were used where they fit best. Had to clean out the shop a bit….so I could set the table up on the tablesaw, rather a towel sitting on the tablesaw’s top. Wanted to be able to rotate the table, without scratching ...

A Table for the Gazebo #7: Bread board ends, drawer building

05-28-2021 11:26 AM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Clamps came off the panel for the top of the table…..ends need to be flat and squared up. Too awkward to do the square up with the tablesaw….not really wanting to handsaw it, either….set to work with the panel clamped to the top of the tablesaw….and let a jack plane and the beltsander go to work ( new belt, too) With the grain with the sander, along the glue lines….jack plane does it’s thing going across the grain…worked over one face, then flip...

Another Hand Plane Rehab #1: A Twisted Sole and a Crooked Frog

05-24-2021 01:56 PM by HokieKen | 31 comments »

We’re well into 2021 and I haven’t done any blog entries for the year so here we go :-) I try to force myself to do a series each year as a way of giving back to the community a little. I have been working on refreshing my recently obtained Millers Falls #24 jointer plane and it’s proving a bit of a challenge so I thought it might make a good subject. Luckily I had this thought early enough to take some pictures rather than after I was finished which is typical of me̷...

The Pursuit #5: Fixing the Chattanooga Chatter Box

05-24-2021 02:50 AM by sansoo22 | 4 comments »

This Bedrock 604C type 6a is most UNAFFECTIONATELY nicknamed the Chattanooga Chatter Box. This “fancy” plane earned its nickname by chattering no matter what I did with it. I toiled for days when I first “restored” it and finally gave up. This was 18 months ago and I’ve have learned a metric butt load more about planes since then. All my other smoothers have been sold off or stripped down for restore so this jerk needed to perform. Around here we often t...

A Table for the Gazebo #4: Aprons?

05-19-2021 03:53 PM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

No, not one of these.. More like the wooden ones, that connect 4 legs to a table….Hauled the rest of the lumber to the shop…made a few cross cuts… Was still a bit left over.. Then set the rip fence to rip one straight edge….reset and rip the other edge to match….then set up a “Set up Block” Reset the fence, and the blade height…..and mill a few tenons… 3 out of 4….#4 involves a drawer front.. Will cut those tenons ...
