  1. Scraper Plane for Tool Swap

    We're wrapping up another fantastic LumberJocks Tool Swap. Reveals are going on right now in the swap thread so hop on over there and check out the tool porn! This was my entry that I made for LJ PoohBaah. It's based on a 112-style scraper plane. It's most akin to the Veritas version because...
  2. T-track mallet, carbide turning tools, and AZ woods...OH MY!

    The swap has come to an end. This one was fun as usual. I changed my mind several times for various reasons as to what to make with it being a surprise swap. I settled on some carbide turning tools with some bonuses. First, the turning tools. I made a full set for Kenny (HokieKen). Square...
  3. Adjustable Drawer Bottom Grooving Plane for Summer Swap 2017

    This is an adjustable grooving plane for drawer bottoms or wherever you need a groove. The cutter is 1/4 inch. So it cuts a 1/4 inch groove up to 1/2 inch deep. I made this tool for GR8HUNTER, in the Summer 2017 Surprise tool Swap. It was really fun.
  4. Winding Sticks for Summer 2017 Suprise Swap

    This is a pair of Winding Sticks that I made for the Summer 2017 Suprise tool Swap. They are made out of Bolivian rosewood with hard maple inlay. I also used maple dowel to connect them together when not in use. These were made for GR8HUNTER in the swap.
  5. Sanding Blocks for 2017 Summer Swap

    For one of my swap items I made a simple yet elegant set of dedicated grit sanding blocks. They are made from Walnut and Oak that I milled up myself. The brass knob came from Rockler. The concept is pretty simple but I wanted to make items that most of us could use but never actually take the...
  6. Frame Clamping Jig for 2017 Summer Swap

    This is my other item that I shipped up to Dave in MN. It seems that clamping jigs are rather popular right now. I wont lie I built this because I was already in the process of building a set for myself since my wife is wanting me to frame a bunch of feed sacks. They are made from Hard Maple and...
  7. Block plane #17

    Dunno if this is the 17th block plane I've made, but it's probably pretty close. I made this plane for the April 2017 Surprise Swap. I don't know why anybody receiving something from me would be surprised to get a plane, though :-) I've made two or three in this style for previous swaps or to...
  8. Surprise Swap scraper plane

    As part of the spring 2017 surprise swap, I decided to make a scraper plane. But rather than a 112-style scraper, I prefer the Stanley #80. I use spokeshaves in a lot of places where normal people use planes. I started by cutting some handles from some 8/4 red oak I have on hand. For the front...
  9. Surprise swap beading plane with adjustable fence

    After I had wrapped up my scraper plane for the spring 2017 surprise swap it felt like the pressure was off a little. I had drawn Mark Kornell as a recipient and Mark makes planes. Well, I'd made a plane I didn't feel bad about sending to him, but I wanted to make something else to sweeten the...
  10. Surprise Swap take two!!! Yeah I shipped another one.

    Ok everyone, as if my first surprise swap gift wasn't enough, I just can't help myself I guess. This one was a late entry but still counts I think. It went to builtinbkyn (Bill). I put everything in the shop aside last weekend to rush this out. It could be better (sorry Bill) but it's what I...
  11. April Surprise Swap Take 2 1/2 !!!

    Okay this is a Grooving plane that I made out of Beech. The wedge is out of Walnut. It cuts a 1/4" groove about 1/2" up on the board. It's great for half blind dovetails when you need to get the groove inside the tail. The last pic is of a pair of Winding Sticks. They are made out of Bolivian...
  12. Finishing
    Guys- My client wants to use the Rubio monocoat for a breakfast bar style countertop that I made for them from honey mesquite, cracks filled with 2-part epoxy (black). Anyone have experience with this sort of application for this product?? ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Most of my...
  13. LumberJocks Swaps
    Lady's and Gents (used loosely), It's time again for another swap. Unfortunately you will have to deal with me this time around. In regular standing, I have completely ripped off the theme intro, rules, etc. format from the previous swap. I would hate to break tradition here. The theme for...
  14. Blogs
    The first one My first experience with handplanes were two 70's era Stanleys (the block with a red lever cap, and a Handyman smoother) I "rescued" from a drawer in my dad's garage three years ago. He had a brief flirtation with woodworking around the time I was 5, and the planes had obviously...
