  2. Wood Planes

    Back in the '70's a fantastic woodworker came on the scene - James Krenov. He influenced a lot of people with his work and the wooden planes that he made and used. I attempted to emulate the planes of this great master woodworker - here are some my attempts. I have made a dozen or so and still...
  3. Hand Planes

    OK, so I don't know anything about the history, types, or proper use of these planes. I got them both from an old farmer's garage sale for $10 - figured I couldn't go wrong for 10 bucks. The long one doesnt have a brand on it; it just says "made in USA." The smaller one says Bailey No. 4 and has...
  4. I don't know if I'm in heaven...

    I promised my self, that since I was starting my new life as a early retired because of health, I would invest in my workshop, the first part was some state of the art Festool tools from Germany, and second part was this - old wonderful tools for woodworking, and most of all some planes, since...
  5. Tool Cabinets

    Nothing too fancy here. Recycled pseudo-mahogany plywood (luan) from a kitchen remodel dumpster dive and new birch plywood boxes. Hung on the wall with cleats. Spent way too many hours fiddling with the arrangement and fabricating the tool holders. Now, almost everything pictured needs to be...
  6. Zero Clearance for Circular saw

    I lowered the base plate of the circular saw until the blade didn't stick through. I used heavy duty double sided tape to adhere a 3/16 inch scrap birch ply piece. I then turned on the saw and lowered it through the birch ply creating the zero clearance. As you can see in the last picture I...
  7. A pair of frames for the family, and an experiment in photographic lighting.

    Sorry for the repeat shots. I thought the difference between just incandescent lighting and incandescent and fluorescent lighting was interesting. The second and fifth are incadescent alone. I'm shooting in the dark, umm both metaphorically and in reality. Hooray for the equinox. The days...
  8. First Bandsaw Box

    Well, after recently completing my homemade bandsaw, it only seemed right to build a bandsaw box. I laminated 2 pieces of soft maple, a piece of oak, and some mahogany into a small block. After pasting on the template I cut it out. After that it was just a lot of sanding, and then a smooth tung...
  9. Plane Cabinet

    Greetings, I've got so much of my cut off that I ended up gluing them up to make a bigger board. I spent over 1 week doing that. I still have boxes of cut offs. I wanted something different in the way of just a raised panel in the door, I made a fixture to hold the board at an angle while I...
  10. DC Modification #3 - The Final Straw

    This is my 3rd and final Modification to my DC. My bin collapsed twice within a short time and clogged the filter to no end. I had enough, so I started researching ways to do a MOD that will have every bell and whistle I could possibly add and be somewhat future proof to a degree. This is...
  11. New hand plane rack.

    So i am just kinda setting up a new wood shop and needed a place for my hand planes. So i made this plane rack.
  12. Tool Cabinet

    In an effort to keep my hand-tools close and easy to get to I am in the process of building a Hanging tool cabinet for them. This cabinet is made out of some old lumber that a friend gave me. I still need to put the drawer fronts on as well as a few other tweaks before it is complete. My long...
  13. American Elm Carved/Turned Hollow Form

    This was someone's firewood at one point. It's the only elm I've ever turned, besides a smaller one that I got the same day, which became my first turned/carved project. Alas, I lost the pics of it. I just completed this piece on Monday or so this week. It is 13.5" tall and a little over 8"...
  14. Personal shop projects

    Made from some walnut and hickory I had laying around my shop. Inspired by John Wilson's book Making Wood Tools. Fun projects.
  15. Oh Joy No.4 Stanley WWll goes to rehab.

    Here a No.4 vintage Stanley WWll area plane, pick up for 5 bucks minus blade and chip breaker, crack tote and slight nicks on one side of the body casting. I re-glued the tote with epoxy which appears to be holding just fine. A few years back I purchase a box of 3 blade and chip breaker off...
  16. Purple Heart cutting board

    I had a friend request a cutting board made from Purple Heart so I tried. This is one of a kind because PH is just too hard to sand. It is end grain and is edged in Walnut. It is 16×19 x 1-5/8 thick. Pictures do not do it justice.
  17. Old Woodworking Tools -brought back to life

    I finally loacated a few of my old Log Cabin/Barn buiding tools. Some are still hiding. I'll dig them out one day soon. I have a collection of great paperback books by Eric Sloan. His drawings are so wonderful. If you ever get a chance to buy or get from a library, you will not be...
  18. David & Goliath, ... refurbishing #8 & #6 Stanley/Bailey "sweethearts"

    KARMA, ... damn good Karma. after lusting for a big Stanley/Bailey for quite some time, i finally came to terms with the fact that i would have to make due with #6 craftsman. decent Baileys were out there, but about as affordable as a Lie-Nielsen, i just couldn't part with that much cash and...
  19. Brazillian Cherry Bowl with Blue and White Sand Inlay

    I used three pieces of old cherry scrap flooring glued with original gorilla glue. I used coarse white sand and fine blue sand with CA glue for the inlay. The fine sand seemed to be a LOT harder on my tools than the last project with only coarse sand. I have to reshape my chisels now. I...
  20. Basement Bar

    The cabinets are made of cherry veneer plywood, as is the top. The bar rail is solid cherry and was purchased. The wine storage is 1/2" birch plywood with slots cut half way through to link the vertical members to the horizontal ones. My wife and I made some of the wine as well.
