Stanley #48 Fence Locking Pin

03-24-2021 03:17 PM by BTodd | 7 comments »

I’ve been interested in purchasing a tongue and groove plane for a while now, but I wanted to wait until I definitely had a project where I’d use it. I decided to build a Dutch tool chest and thought this would be a great project to justify pulling the trigger on one. I checked on Ebay and happened to find a listing for a Stanley #48 at a better price than I’d previously seen. In my excitement at getting a good deal, I didn’t do my due diligence in checking that all of...

Office Cabinet #5: Stanley 45: I Tried Something

03-20-2021 01:39 PM by Tom | 7 comments »

I decided to use the Stanley 45 on a lot of the joinery for this project. It works well for cutting grooves and I enjoy using it. It also makes nice T&G match boards, but it does take some time to switch out the set up for tonguing and grooving. It also takes some time to align the cuts, so I usually cut all the grooves and then all the tongues. I also use it for rabbeting, but mostly on narrow cuts up to about 1/2”. Wider cuts usually don’t turn out as well because the...

Drop Leaf Table #7: Working the Top

01-05-2020 05:24 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

The holiday season really sucks up the free time, but I have been working the top for the past couple weeks. It’s a fun process, but the rule joint is quite a challenge and a bit time consuming if you do it with hollows and rounds. I can’t really recommend it if you need to make this joint on a regular basis. In the end, I am pretty satisfied with the result. Yes, it could be cleaner and tighter, but it’s fine. I have a few old, antique drop-leaf tables in my home and s...

Moravian Workbench #9: A Shelf

09-29-2019 03:05 PM by Tom | 1 comment »

The Moravian workbench is really designed for use with hand tools. Having a shelf below the bench is helpful to set some tools and keep larger items out of the way. The original example at Old Salem had a simple shelf which was a board set on the stretchers. I also want a shelf on my workbench but it needs to be removable to maintain the portability of the workbench. I designed my own shelf so that it can be easily removed and carried by one person. It is bracketed on three sides to...

Making Figured Maple Wainscot for a restaurant

09-12-2019 02:36 AM by Steve | 5 comments »

Over the summer one of my instrument building customers told me he bought a restaurant. It seemed out of the blue but I wished him well. Then I realized that he was not telling me this coincidentally. Rather, he wanted the restaurant’s interior to pay homage to the exotic instrument woods he uses to build guitars. I invited him out to the warehouse to take a walk and see if something inspires him. Unfortunately, there were some limitations. Not the least of which w...

Spanish Cedar Gate

12-30-2016 02:38 AM by clin | 7 comments »

I’ve been making some gates for my house. Here’s a link to a project I posted a earlier. Here’s the drawing. the gate is roughly 6 ft tall and 4 1/2 ft wide. So it is a rather large gate. While the back gates, made from inland red cedar, came out fine, I wanted a more refined look for the large front gate leading to our house. After calling around, a small lumber dealer “Southwest Lumber” in Albuquerque, NM suggested I consider Spanish cedar. So I h...

Skill Building #2: Learning More of the Things!!!

08-22-2016 10:08 PM by CraftyCantrell | 3 comments »

I’ve switched to a largely video format, as it’s easier to hit record at the beginning of a process, hit stop at the end, and then edit out the unusable bits. This week I undertook Lesson 1: Assignment 6: Tongue and Groove Joint Here is the video: Link included above, as I’m not sure that the video is loading correctly here. And you can read my full write-up on my regular blog

Fun with a Stanley #45 - #3: Tongue and Groove

03-18-2014 12:13 AM by Mosquito | 18 comments »

Using my Stanley #45 plane to cut tongue and groove. For the purpose of this example I am using a couple pieces of pine. I am using the 1/4” Tongue and Groove irons, and have the depth on the tongue iron set as deep as it can go. The Groove depth stop is set to match this depth once the tongue has been cut. The #45 is set up with the short rods as opposed to the long rods. There is nothing stopping a person from using the long rods, I just prefer to use the short ones when I ...

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #15: Material Prep for Panel Doors

06-23-2012 04:05 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 66 comments »

EDIT: Updated pics to eliminate PB BS… well, except for the video at the end. That’s still hosed, sorry. Smitty When we left off yesterday, I had a pile of cherry needing attention. So tonight The plan was to joint whatever I had to in support of the next step in this cabinet build: assembly and glue-up of the upper panel doors. The panel boards ended up just a hair less than 1/2” according to the measure on the planer, and I arranged them into a pattern that’d l...
