  1. Hand Tools
    Hi there, I have followed a couple threads from here over the years and love the site so I signed up and hope someone out there might be able to assist me in identifying whether or not something is legit in regards to a hand plane. So I'll also make this my Hi Everyone !!!! post because the link...
  2. my first plane

    okay. I came, I saw, I pondered… and I jumped on board. I started with some 8/4 maple and planed it down to a hair over 1 5/8". I then took some 3/4 Lyptus and planed it down to 3/8". I cut the angles (45 and 15)on the maple and then did a glue up with the maple "sandwiched" between the two...
  3. First Krenov Block Plane

    I was at Woodcraft yesterday and after a bit of work on some old wood hand planes i couldn't help but buy a Hock iron and build my own. I used some American Elm (I know, it's somewhat soft but it's free!). It's a bevel down Krenov style that cuts great and I couldn't be happier with my first...
  4. Summer Breeze sailboat

    Between a new job, various programs we run for and projects we do with disadvantaged kids, building my living roof workshop, and replumbing the house, we ended up pretty burned out come late spring. The county 4H foundation has a big annual fundraiser, we had to go early in the morning to take...
  5. The first dream...I think

    Back in 1995 something traumatic happened to me and I sometimes think good work is born from pain, whether it be poetry, music or art. In this case it was something functional. I wanted the pleasure of working wood with tools I had made myself. The little journey of some of my tools that I...
  6. More Workbench Accessories #3 - Quick Clamp Aid & Handplane Tip

    The planing breakaway aid is from the April issue of WWJ - an alternative to chamfering the edge before you plane. You can make one in 5 - 10 minutes. I have a Veritas low angle block plane with a 25-degree blade in it for planing endgrain. When I want to use it as a standard block plane, I...
  7. Puukko Project

    Commission by a friend for her husband. Traditional scandinavian design using lacewood and birch, with antler accents. The stand's base is solid lacewood with 5 coats of tung oil that was buffed with steel wool between coats. Caribou shed was routerd in and epoxied to stay in place, same with...
  8. Krenov-Style Block Plane

    I finished making a 6" block plane, inspired by both James Krenov and William Ng today and I am pretty happy with the result! I sat in on a class that William taught, and I got caught up in the idea of making some of the hand tools I work with. That, coupled with Seeing Yeung Chan's Tools up...
  9. Chamfer Guide for Block Plane

    I often enjoy using my hand tools instead of power tools. Making chamfers by hand is one good example, but I do a better job on some days than others. In this video, I build a 'chamfer guide' - something I find helpful when trying to chamfer the edges on a relatively long workpiece. I make two...
  10. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...
  11. DISPLAY CABINET with SLIDING BYPASS GLASS DOORS & TWO DRAWERS

    This is a modification of the Display Bookcase Plan from American Woodworker September 2007 Issue #130. I built this Display Cabinet for a good friend with a very extensive, varied and quality fishing reel collection. It seems to be well accepted and well stocked. So, I am very pleased with the...
  12. Matching end tables

    I made a pair of these. The wood used is clear pine. The drawer is 1/2" poplar and the drawer bottom oak plywood. The top is a glue up of two 1×12's. I match jointed them with a #7. I finished the top with a smooth plane and chamfered it lightly with a block plane. Legs and supports are 6/4...
  13. Plane Rack

    I finally got around to building a plane rack to go with the chisel rack I built earlier in the year. It doesn't hold all of my planes, just the ones I use most. I say that but like most people, I don't use all of the Stanley bench planes. They look cool though. I'm still in the process of...
  14. Block plane

    Tool trade with another woodworker. He's getting a block plane and I'm getting one of his marking knives.
  15. Kernov style block plane

    Kernov style block plane- curly American black walnut veneer outer with sapele core which came from an offcut from my mother-in-law's kitchen worktop and an ebony base. The wedge is beech spalting. The wedge didn't hold the blade securely so I added a brass thumbscrew to hold it.

    this is tthe Hippo flower pot Holder Holds two 8 inch flower pots. plans and eyes came from Meisel Hardware Specialties.. I used standard pine boards 1×10's then painted then with a exterior latex paint paint and primer in one . Used a grape vine green color. I origanally used a green...
  17. contemporary shelf

    This project came to be about a year after I had finished building this house. THe homeowner, who is an artist by trade, had asked if I would be interested in building a contemporary shelf that would fit on a wall under the staircase. After a couple of different sketches I was off and running...
  18. Another cutting board

    Yet another endgrain cutting board. Hard maple and purple heart, 17" x 12" x 1-1/2". Based on the design popularized by The Woodwhisperer. The only hard part is paying attention when laying out the pieces and doing the flip & rotate so that I kept the end-grain orientation the same on like...
  19. Side Table - Quarter Sawn Oak Again

    This is the first piece of furniture I built after some 25 years away from woodworking. The wood is from a huge white oak on our property. There was so much of it I could afford to have some quarter sawn. Learned some tricks for putting good clean edges on the top pieces without a jointer. The...
  20. Bauhaus Block Plane TS/Krenov style

    When reading through LJ you get the impression that there are two major steps in developing into a true LumberJock: Building your own workbench- and building your ovn plane(s) Thought i´d start with a plane. I needed a block plane for my Book rack to camfer all the edges. What I wanted was: -...
