  1. Blogs
    Table of Contents Greetings, This blog series is going to be for postings that don't necessarily go with anything else, and/or entries that will be just a single post. I will probably use it mainly for random things around the shop. Stuff like jigs, tool holders, etc. I'm going to use this...
  2. 2013 Hand Plane Swap

    Gather around children, and I'll tell you the story about The Ugly Little Jack Plane That Could. I've been lurking and infrequently posting to this site for almost a couple of years now. I sat out the last swaps this site did, the mallets and marking gauges. I wasn't confident enough in my...
  3. 2013 Handplane Swap

    This is the first LumberJock Swap I have participated in and first wooden hand plane made and overall I am pleased although as usual I look forward to future work with the lessons learned from previous mistakes… I chose the "Honduran Jack" as I decided to name it, as it was in my mind the most...
  4. Infill Block Planes for Swap

    For the plane swap, I decided to make a small infill block plane. However, I wanted one for myself, so here is the pair. These planes are brushed aluminum sides with 3/8" thick cold rolled mild steel soles. The bedding angle is 15 degrees, with a 1 1/4" wide O1 iron. The infill is bocote...
  5. Serious center-channel speaker

    In an earlier article I discussed how I had built the left and right speakers for my smaller home A/V system. The center speaker in that installation, built to match some Dunlavy Cantata left and right speakers used there for a while, was different and not really stylistically compatible with...
  6. Daughter's Wedding Cake Cutter & Server Box

    My wife had picked up a very nice wedding cake cutter & server set for my daughters wedding last year. So I made this box to keep them in. It's a cherry box with maple holders and an oak bottom, basically wood I had laying around. The handle hold down pivots on a pin and has hidden rare earth...

  7. 2013 Hand Plane Swap

    The body and sole are Jatoba or Brazilian Cherry, the sides are Wenge. It's a #4ish sized smoother, 2" Nice Ash blade bedded at 45 degrees. A big thank you to Rhett for hooking it up with this sweet hunk of steel. Just as advertised, a final honing was all it took to make some sweet shavings...

    Two planes made for the 2013 plane swap. First one is a 45 degree smoother. body is chestnut and sides are bloodwood. Second is a scraper. Body is birch and sides are cherry. Irons are vintage, however the chip breaker for the smoother is shop made. "Planes with the "plane swap tag
  9. 2013 Hand Plane Swap Leadwood

    For the 2013 Hand Plane Swap I make a 18"x3"x2.5" smoother. The bed angle is 50 degrees. With the 1/4" thick iron from Nice Ash Planes and weighing in at almost 5lbs. I chose Leadwood for the body. Its rated at 3570 lbf on the Janka scale. I sanded to 320 then burnished with a rag and...
  10. Hand Plane swap 2013

    I made this smoothing plane for the plane swap. The iron is bedded at 50° w/ a fantastic Nice Ash iron, thanks Rhett. I used white oak for the body and Morado for the sole, the wedge is lacewood. I also made the adjusting hammer to go with it. This is clearly a Krenov style plane all the...
  11. 2013 Hand Plane Swap - Ash Smoother

    Here is the plane I made for Ripthorn. I purchased a 1 ½" iron from nice ash planes (Thanks Rhett), and having some ash left over from a rocking chair build thought why not make a nicely shaped ash plane. Searching around the interweb I decided on a Krenov style smoother, I also liked how...
  12. 2013 Handplane Swap

    Here is my creation for the 2013 Handplane Swap. The body is walnut and the sole, cross pin and wedge are hard maple. I used one of Rhett's 1 inch plane blades and pretty much followed the dimensions of the Popular Mechanics Handplane project and technique of David Finck's Making and Mastering...
  13. 2013 plane swap

    my humble contribution to the plane swap that i sent off to jordanp. It is a smoother, made of cherry and maple with a bronze wedge pin 50 degree bed. Never made one before, or even played around with a wooden hand plane before i made this. It was fun making this, learned alot and made a few...
  14. Mosquito's 2013 Handplane Swap

    This is the plane I made for NateDog for the 2013 Plane Swap. It's made of red oak, and is sort of a hybrid between krenov and traditional. It's made with 4 pieces, 1 for the bed and tote, one for the toe, and one on each side. This turned out to be good, as I could make multiple attempts at...
  15. terryR's 2013 Swap Plane

    Here's my offering for the 2013 plane swap… An 8" long smoother made from Honduras Rosewood and Ziricote. 1 3/4" Hock iron and 'breaker bedded at 45 degrees. Cross pin is stainless steel housed in Ziricote. This was only my 2nd plane ever, so the results are OK, but I'm ready for more practice...

  17. Red's Plane for the 2013 Plane Swap

    Here's the Krenov-style plane I made for the swap. It went to Justin or LJ Tugboater78. It's made of hard maple, walnut, and brass for the rod. The iron is from Nice Ash Planes. Technically the length would make it a jack plane, but I use jack planes as smoothers and all sorts of tasks. So I...
  18. 2013 Hand Plane Swap

    This was my submission for the 2013 Plane Swap. It is a 10" smoother made from Jatoba with a Cocobolo sole constructed in a Krenov style. The iron is from NiceAsh and is set at 50 degrees. Other than resawing the first glue up, the plane was made mostly by hand. All the shaping was done with...
  19. High angle smoother -- 2013 Plane Swap

    Here is the plane that was sent to BigRedKnothead as part of the plane swap. It is a small high angle smoother made from ash and hickory with a 1-1/2" Nice Ash iron. The iron is bedded at 60 degrees for use on extremely difficult grain. There is also a brass plug in the rear for use as a...
  20. Adjustable Mouth Smoothing Plane and Hammer (2013 Plane Swap)

    Here is the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap (I slept in today… hopefully I didn't miss the plane submission party). It's an adjustable mouth 8 1/4" 50 degree smoother made from jatoba, hard maple, walnut for the knob, a brass pin, and some mystery wood for the wedge. The iron is an...
