Working a Slab by Hand

04-27-2010 05:41 PM by davemoorefurniture | 30 comments »

If you have ever had material that is too large for your machines, fear not. In this video I demonstrate how I use a set of planes to achieve a time honored technique by flattening, thicknessing, and joining a live-edge, cherry table top. I hope you enjoy and please feel free to give me feedback so that I may improve in both my woodworking and video abilities.

Scrub Plane Camber Calculator

11-21-2010 04:07 PM by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

After my recent Little Good Pieces post, “Scrub Plane on the Cheap”, I received a comment by Swirt from Timber Frame Tools. It had some great info, and I’d like to repost a portion of it here for those that don’t read my blog or its comments: “Good article Robert. I’ve been using a No5 as a scrub for a long time and it works well. To get the most out of any given scrub, the amount of curve can be optimized without too much trouble. The recommendation of 3″ r...

A trip to Lie Nielsen...

08-11-2008 08:29 AM by ShannonRogers | 13 comments »

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...

Make a Moxon Benchtop Bench - Part 2

05-30-2017 12:03 PM by Daniel Solowiej | 6 comments »

Hello everyone! In this second part of the built of my Moxon benchtop bench, I share with you the gluing of the parts, the beveling of dog holes using a gouge, the shaped of the fixing lugs, the placement of the threaded rods, and the built of the front jaw. Beveling of dog holes using a gouge, instead a power router or other method, it’s really simple and quick.As all in wood, you must understand the grain direction, and think that the gouge will be in four basic position...

Progress of a self taught cabinet maker #7: Dulling Planes and Scraper Shaves

05-12-2011 05:12 AM by RGtools | 4 comments »

It’s been awhile since I have made any sort of update here so I wanted to say a bit of what I was up to. But first and ode to one of the unsung heroes in my shop. !https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/ll2ang9.jpg! This lovely little plane just does not get enough credit. The mouth is wide, it has no chip breaker, the sole is almost flat, the sides are dented beyond all repair and yet without this little guy I could not work the way I do. As you can see I have never used th...

Handy tools #11: Scrub plane made from a maroon #3 Stanley

07-12-2020 04:02 AM by Dave Polaschek | 4 comments »

Found a guy on eBay who’s got a bunch of maroon #3 Stanley planes he’s selling for $37.50 each. They were $31 a year and a half ago when I bought one to try it out. At the time, I flattened the sole, decided it was a cheap plane and if I wanted to improve it, I’d probably need to buy a Hock plane blade at minimum. Today I decided I was going to repurpose it as a scrub plane. I pulled the blade and walked over to the grinder. I freehand ground something between a 4” and 6” radius on the end...
