  1. Beer Storage and Brewing Table

    This was a quick utility project made with plywood and biscuit joints. Pocket screws were also used to increase strength because of the weight that the cabinet will have to hold. Also because of the weight we used edge strips to support and stiffen the middle shelf and top instead of veneer to...
  2. Rabbet Plane

    Slowly crawling out of my offline cave back to online life… This here is my most recent project that I finished couple of days ago: wooden rabbet plane. Beech, some little brass and steel. Finish is two coats of BLO. 200 mm / 8" long, 40 mm / 1-5/8" wide, cutting angle 55 deg. Will see how...
  3. Shop dustpan

    I've been needing a dust pan for my shop for a while. I have a cheap one, but in order to sweep up, I end up having to bend down, and with my bad back, that's no fun. So when I saw the one in Popular Woodworking by The Schwarz, I added that to my to-do list. I cut a couple pieces of elm for the...
  4. Whale of a rabbet plane

    Over the last few years, I have become more interested in improving my skill at using hand tools. I like the way good planes work and like the wooden ones a lot. I decided to start out by making a less complicated rabbet (rebate) plane. I had a nice piece of dense mahogany that would do for...
  5. Skew rabbet plane for 2020 Surprise Swap

    The spring swap this year was a surprise swap, so we could make anything we wanted. Since my shop was being built, and would not be complete until reveal week on the swap, I spend a while thinking about what I was going to build for the swap. I decided I'd make a skew rabbet plane. I have an old...
  6. planes, planes, and more planes

    He last few weeks I've been on sort of a plane rush. It started with moulding planes and has moved extensively to rabbet planes. I have a no.6 hollow and round, a no.16 round, and 4 or 5 rabbet planes. So far all of my planes use blades hacksawed out of old table saw blades. They work quite...
  7. A Small Scale James Krenov Cabinet

    Well, at least that was my intention. I have always admired a Krenov cabinet, so I thought I'd pay homage to the master craftsman. The drawers are maple with bubinga fronts. The cabinet is cherry as are the drawer pulls, while the dovetailed cornerposts and stand are made from bloodwood.
  8. Sam's Bored, sorry Board

    This is my second attempt at a cutting board. Still not all that technically hard but a lot of hard work. Especially considering I dont have an orbital sander, YET. It was sanded to 400 grit by hand all over. The finish is a board oil made from oranges. The whole thing is made from recycled...
  9. moving fillister plane

    I made this plane from some beautiful quarter sawn cherry with bubinga accents. It works like a champ and I have maybe $50 invested in it. Sure is a lot cheaper then a decent vintage one. Check out my blog to see how I made it, the build process is a bit long to describe here ;). The blade is a...
  10. Chests of Drawers for Under Daughter's Loft

    These three chests of drawers were made to fit under my daughter's loft bed. In the design I wanted to optimize storage, so there are no dividers and the drawers run out to just shy of the cabinet sides. Altogether there are 25 drawers, varying in height, but all having the same lengths and...
  11. Some toolmaking: Planes & layout gear

    For this table i recently finished i had some trouble with the kiln dryed ash tearing out. After a chat with MaFe i could see that the only solution was a scraper plane. Searching LJ i found a super thorough blog by Shipwright describing a wooden scraper plane made after an old book awailable...
  12. Silk Road

    This is a solid Mahogany Coffee Table with Wenge and Purple Heart edge trim and bubinga leaf inlays. The mahogany has lots of ribbon and quilting that resembles silk. I also had one of the bubinga leaves flow over the edge of the table.
  13. assorted hand tools

    Fence and depth stop for Stanley 78 rabbet plane, which was missing these parts when I bought it for $5. Depth stop is held vertically using captive brass rod to slide in the plane's groove. Shaped wooden fence works well, looks good, and has got to be more comfortable to hold than the original...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Does anyone out there own and/or have experience using the ECE Moving Fillister Plane? If so, how do the fence and depth adjusters work? Its hard to tell form the various adds online. I'm thinking about purchasing a fillister/rabbeting plane, but don't feel like messing about with sharpening...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    In a moment of weakness I succombed to the marketing strategy of the folks at Lee Valley who conspired to send me an e-mail introducing their new Veritas Detail Rabbet Planes. To make matters worse they are offereing an introductory price during March. I have the Veritas medium sized shoulder...
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi, I am looking at a rabbet plane that a guy wants to sell me. It is a small rabbet plane, and he tells me it is "unmarked". By the pictures, it looks just like a Stanley #75 rabbet plane. I have seen other pictures of #75s and they all have a sticker on the back, right where your palm would...
  17. Hand Tools
    Got this at the flea market for $3. I think this is a rabbet plane, but I'm not sure. It may be a shoulder plane and could be used either way. It is 9 3/4 long, 2 3/4 in height and blade is exactly 1 inch wide. There isn't a manufacturing mark on the plane. The blade has a small alligator...

    What is the right grind angle for a rabbet plane (Stanley 78)?
  19. Hand Tools
    I'm new to the craft and have the Miller Falls equivalent of a Stanley #4. I'm having a hard time jointing boards with such a small plane, and wanted to pick up a used jointer plane, but I'm on a tight budget. I also need a rabbet plane for an upcoming project, and someone on Facebook...

    Precursor and laminating the body Intro- I've been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are...
