  1. Mission Table Lamp

    This lamp is not for the timid as it is made up of over 60 pieces of quarter sawn white oak. It is an adaptation of an original table lamp seen at the St. Paul, MN Arts & Crafts show. The lamps have become a favorite of our extended family and make a great wedding present. The changes I made...
  2. Zebrawood Tote & Knob Sets for Stanley No. 4

    I am in the process of restoring a bunch of old Stanley/Bailey planes, and many of them had broken or damaged totes/knobs. This was my first attempt at making my own tote/knob set. I chose Zebrawood, and I decided to make 2 knobs and 2 totes. Obviously, the knobs were turned on a lathe. The...
  3. Spalted Maple Hollow Form

    This was a true UGLY DUCKLING. I have never seen a piece of wood this ugly get turned. It was soo bad, I wouldn't have put it on the fire! The only reason I tried to turn it was because it was given to me, to see if I could make some thing from it. I think it is Maple. The entire outside was...
  4. Cradle

    Following my dad's footsteps, I modified a design and built a cradle for our 1st grandchild due in May. The pads & things require one of two basic dimentions 32×16 or 36×18, I went with the larger. All joined, pegged & glued not a screw in it.

  8. Bailey Bench Plane #4 Restoration

    First, I was unsure as to the best place to post this "project". The handles are made of wood, right? They were sanded and refinished with a couple coats of tung oil. The plane was cleaned and repainted. The iron sharpened and the back flattened. I am a hand plane beginner. I have recently...

  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hello all. Recently I was lucky enough to acquire a Stanley 607 on ebay. Cleaning it up, lapping the sole, replacing the blade and chipbreaker. But one thing…the japanning. I don't want to paint the bed with something shiny. I really prefer the finish that you find on the Veritas tools, that...

    Hey folks, I'm almost ready to start using the Electrolisys rust removal to restore my bench planes and several other tools that I've been gathering lately at local garage sales and flea markets, but…. I just can't find washing soda anywhere….!!!!! Is there another option or substitute for...
  13. Hand Tools
    Hey all, I have a nice Bailey No. 8. It's mostly good, but there's a little ding in the back of the mouth. Looking for some advice on lapping it out. Two questions: 1. Is it small enough to lap out with sandpaper at home? 2. Is it small enough that it won't affect my work if I just leave it...
  14. Hand Tools
    One of the planes I have from my GG-father is a Sargent, so I have been recently exploring eBay and picked up another "user" as well as David Heckel's book on these planes. In an attempt to better myself and my knowledge about Sargent & Co. I try to follow the eBay postings on a regular basis...
  15. Site Help and Suggestions
    Ok color me confused. Yesterday I just posted a project on restoring a 100 year old woodworking plane, a Sargent 418VBM. I checked it this morning and had a number of positive comments and "how to" questions. Now I check and POOF! It's gone. QUESTION: Is this an anomaly? Any ideas what...

  18. Hand Tools
    I have just acquired and am planning to restore my first infill plane, a Spiers AYR. It is missing the rear wooden part which I will have to recreate. The wood currently in the back of the plane is not native to this plane. I am not sure whether it is a coffin smother or it should have a tote...
  19. Hand Tools
    If any of you have experience making loose frogs tight, I'd love to hear your advice. I picked up a Millers Falls Type 3, no. 11 Junior Jack plane on the cheap and am doing a pretty standard restoration. I pulled the frog out and cleaned the rust from the contact points on the frog and the...
  20. Blogs
    Groz planes, Plane and Simple I have commented all over the net about Groz planes. I really think they are a good option to save some money. My set included a #4 smoother and a low angle block with adjustable throat. It was on sale for about $40-50 over at Woodcraft. Quality-wise they are...
