  1. Scrap Oak Scrub Plane (Hand tools only)

    I am not a plane maker. This was my first venture into the land of plane making. And since I am trying to migrate over to using hand tools only, I made this with only hand tools. I needed a scrub plane that would do what I needed, the one I had before really bit the cheese for some reason. So I...
  2. Renovated Wooden Scrub Plane

    Another wooden plane I picked up for 2 Euros. Just some light cleaning to the body, but the blade needed a fair bit of work. I fixed the lose handle and flattened the sole. It works really great now :)
  3. Japanese Herashi Kanna (Scrub Plane)

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here. View on YouTube This was something that I hadn't seen done before so I figured I'd give it a go. In Toshio Odate's book there is a reference to a plane called a Herashi Kanna. Odate also calls it a "cutting down plane" since it's used for...
  4. Hickory Table

    I am pretty new to the site but I thought I would post a project I just finished today. I don't have a good picture of the finished table but you can more or less see how it turned out as it is sitting in the corner of my office in one of the pics. It is all hickory and was built from rough cut...
  5. Poor Man's "Wolverine" sharpening jig

    I got hold of a Jet lathe a few weeks back, and with the completion of a project am getting around to playing with it. The chisel set that came with it is a pretty basic set and the owner had tried to sharpen them by hand. Needles to say they were almost unusable. This month Woodcraft as their...
  6. Restoration of a Vintage Wooden Scrub Plane

    This is an old horned scrub plane I got a while back. I have been using it unfinished and finally put a coat of oil and wax on it. It had seen a hard life, it had some cracks and paint splatter on it. I planed, scraped and sanded off all the old crud, filled cracks with glue and sawdust, and...
  7. A Pair of Scrub Planes

    Last year my father made me a beast of a jointer. I liked it so much I wanted a whole set! I decided to repay the favour and make each of us a matching scrub plane. (He made himself a Jack in the same style already) The main body is oak with wenge sides and a rosewood sole and tote. there's...
  8. Shop Air Filter / Box Fan

    A number of LJ'ers have made one of these. Took about an hour total to make. The outlet box has a 60 minute timer which controls one of the outlets. The other is hot all the time. I used a long cord to plug the unit in. Used a couple scraps of luan and an 8' 1×2. Still need to find a place to...
  9. Hand Tools
    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know I picked up a Kobalt Bench plane from lowes about 2 weeks ago. It's not the best smoother. Although after you flatten the sole and tune up the blade and frog it did take pretty decent shavings. However, I have better planes for smoothing, but I do not have...

  11. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have been studying planes and I think I just about have them figured out to the point I know which one to use for a given purpose. I just discovered the number 40 scrub plane. It seems to me I could just take an old number 5, open up the mouth, round off the iron and go to work. Am I...

    Handscrew Dogs If you have 3/4" bench dog holes on your bench and a couple of handscrew clamps then in 10 minutes you can merge the two into a very flexible and powerful clamping system that works with small boards, long boards and even irregular pieces. I'll let the photos tell the story …...

Over the years I have built many tools and jigs. some were failures, most were not. The main thing is there are a lot of tools that you could buy, but also that you...

  15. Hand Tools
    Hello everyone, I recentlly bought a Stanley Scrub plane on ebay. It is of the earlier type without the T. When I first got it, I set it up and grabbed a 2×4 and tried it out. Great, I thought, everything working as it sould. Last night, I finally got around to cleaning it. Just to make sure...
