  1. Sharpening Workbench

    I built this mini workbench to hold all my sharpening equipment, keeping abrasive grit and metal slurry away from my main bench. It's built entirely from construction-grade lumber (mostly laminated SPF 2×4s), with mortise and tenon joints. I cut the tenons on the table saw, but hand chopped...
  2. Mickey Bench

    Made this bench for my wife. She's a bit of a Disney fan. It looks like someone is trying to steal credit for it.
  3. Home Plate Baseball Desk | Custom

    Batter up! This is a desk that was built along with the Special Edition Baseball Locker murphy bed. It is shaped like the home plate and uses bats for the legs. I built this one in February 2010. This is the first time I've built this one using ash wood. The home plate top is MDF painted with...

  7. Bulldozer Book Shelf

    Well, this is my first post on lumberjocks. In fact, its the first time I ever showed anyone outside my immediate family and a few friends at work any woodworking project. So I'm pretty nervous. Anyway, my wife said my son Dylan needed a bookshelf. When I asked him what type of bookshelf he...
  8. Workbench

    My version of a Roubo workbench. Front leg vise is amazing….my first use of this kind of set-up. I varied from the traditional by putting a twin screw vise on the end. I already had a good bench, but this setup is way better. Top is hard maple and some red oak. Base is pine. Leg vise is red oak...
  9. Toys for toddlers

    All these have movable arms and legs. Most about seven inches tall, Marvin the Martian is made of poplar and walnut. Others are made of poplar or pine. Our club makes thousands of toys every year so I plan to mass produce these four in addition to others I contribute. We give them to local...

    I'm tuning all my planes and right now I'm working on my Stanley #90. This the smallest of their shoulder planes. I've watched a good shoulder plane tuning video on FWW by Chris Gochnour and it is all straight forward. BUT, I'm worried about the sole since it is coated with nickel like the rest...
  11. Hand Tools
    I bought a Stanley #3 at a local flea market, mostly to learn how to rehab cheap planes. However, I am having a very difficult time lapping the back of the plane iron flat. I don't know if this is user error (quite possible), an issue with the plane, or (hopefully not) and issue with my diamond...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Does anyone else have a lapping plate? I just got one and I have a few questions: 1. How do you store it (in a box, with oil/slurry left on it, etc.) 2. When lapping just a part of something like the back of a chisel, how do you keep from wearing the plate un-even since you cannot use the whole...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    My local auto store stopped carrying pressure sensitive adhesive backed rolls of 3M wet dry sandpaper. I use it primarily for lapping and sharpening. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good online source? I found this one...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So I just nabbed my first router this past weekend! It's an old Craftsman 6 inch 113.20680 is the model. Final price was like $50 off Craigslist. And I'm thinking that if I can rehab this thing into decent shape it'll last me longer than a cheap new flimsy aluminum bench top jointer would at...

    Hello everyone. I sure could use some help. I'm struggling with flattening some chisels and a plane iron and spokeshave iron. I just purchased a 12 piece Narex premium chisel set. All but one chisel has as a belly in the back (plane/spokeshave has bellies too). I have spent HOURS on these...

    Planes, Planes, Planes After a long week at work, I decided it was time to start the process of restoring my bench planes. I have been collecting them for a while with the intent of getting a good set of operational hand planes. I am hoping I will get a good set of usable planes at a...

    My Journey Towards Proficiency "My Journey Towards Proficiency." That's a lofty statement, isn't it? Let's just say it's a goal I have the intention of reaching at some level, some day. There seems to be a lot of chatter about hand tools in the world of woodworking lately and I am glad it is...

    Sharpening Great link on how to sharpen and get a "scary" edge, tried it up to 150 grit and it was pretty scary. I don't want to imagine a few thousand. spoiler: sticky sided sandpaper on glass (for a flat surface) Article by Taunton Press via FineWoodworking...

    What is Sharp? Intro to Hand Tools Three Saturdays ago, Kristin and I woke up early and headed down to good ol' Cerritos Community College to start our new class, Woodworking with Hand Tools. Previously we have taken Basic Woodworking, Cabinet Making and a Furniture Lab together. I have also...
  20. Hand Tools
    Rockler has this On Sale with FREE Shipping In looking at the reviews (only has a 3.5 star rating - LOW, to me), I see where it's rated 4-5 is WHEN they work on it a little. One of the things they say they do it is "lapping" this or that to make it better, etc. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT "Lapping"...
