  1. Perfect handle screwdriver rehab.

    My daughter picked this up ay a yard sale this summer for 1.00. The last third of it was bent about 30 degrees , full of rust and the scales were in pieces. This was one of those in between other projects project. The scales came from the ash i cut down in my back yard because of those pesky...
  2. #5 Jack Plane Rehab

    This is the #5 Jack Plane that I picked up from eBay. After using my inherited #3 Smoothing Plane for my last cutting board, I knew I wanted a nicer #5 Jack. My father gave me a beautiful Lie Nelson Block Plane, but the LN Bench Planes are quite a leap up in price. I got this for about $25...
  3. Sleigh

    Cedar, 10×7, finished in lacquer.
  4. Claro Walnut Bowl

    Just getting into bowl turning and finished this claro walnut bowl. I picked up a few of the Easy Wood Tools a few weeks back and really love their simplicity and ease of use. I used the full-sized Easy Rougher (Ci1) and Easy Finisher (Ci0). Experimented a bit with the finishing technique to get...
  5. Live Oak "Pencil Box"

    Here's a pencil box I made for my wife to use on her cluttered desk (snuck a project in while she's out of town). I made it from 1/4" (before sanding) slats I milled from a storm-felled branch of one of the Live Oak trees on the property.
  6. Band saw rehab

    It's funny how sometimes the things you really need actually do fall into your lap… sort of. I've never owned anything more than a 9" band saw, and apparently I've spent at least three decades making projects out of straight lumber, because I've gotten on without one. Now I have a commission...
  7. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have heard mention here of the product "Evaporust". Their website claims that it is used by all kinds of people for getting rid of rust. Is it an effective way to remove rust? I have been known to purchase, occaisionally, a sight unseen tool from Ebay or other site, that is not in the best...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have a few questions about vintage vises, but first my finds: I found a very rusty, but still workable, large Columbian vise, similar to the one hhhopks highlights in his forum post "New Life for a Columbian Woodworking Vise #2: Will it turn?". I was able to pick it up at an auction for less...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have scored some gems from CList over the past year and have been working to rehab them (Dewalt MBF RAS from 1951, Craftsman TS from 1971, Rockwell 14in Band saw from 1956). I have checked some of the rehabs from OWWM and have seen some great ones here and I have two major questions . How do...
  10. 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...
  11. Finishing
    As you know I did a couple plane rehabs and now the paint is cured but it feels kinda rough to the touch. How can I get the paint to feel smoother like the way it looks? Also when I touch it there is a scuff mark left even if I just rub it a little with my finger. I know my hands are rough but...

    Stanley Block Plane Well I was going to paint my medicine cabinet (see other blog) but it started raining. Instead I decided to try my hand at electrolysis (thanks to David here on Lumberjocks). I went up to the attic where I had some old planes I've collected that I would one day rehab...

    Heres where it all begins. Hello, my name is TD and I'm a planeaholic. There I said it, they say that admitting you have a problem is the biggest step. Whew! Now I can get to the good stuff. Lets take a look at where it all began I was walking through a local junk store just minding my own...

    It's time for a cabinet meeting! The great cabinet build started in earnest on Thursday. Before any cabinets got built, however, I had to wait for a little help to show up to cut the full sheets of plywood down. While waiting I gave the shop a pretty good cleaning and even managed to organize...

After dinner I slipped into my pajamas to watch tv and do one of my favorite on-the-road activities-look for tools on Ebay. Now...

    Some Background > UPDATED 04 May 2018 to address CHUMBUCKET limitation. kas < Posted a 'Shop Notes' entry some time ago to talk about a big 'ole pine dovetailed box I bought at a local auction. Not absolutely certain it was ever a tool chest, but I won't rule it out either. Some points to...

    Getting into tools. When I got started into woodworking, it was all about doing projects around the house. Every project I completed got me a new (power) tool. Its how I built my shop. I started with a circular saw and a router I got for my birthday. I built a bookshelf, got a drill. I...

    Introduction I should preface this blog with a note about myself. I recently shed most of my power tools in favor of old hand tools, like Stanley Planes, Disston saws, and old Braces/Bits and eggbeater drills. This was around December of 2014 (about 9 months ago as of this writing). The two...
