  1. Brotherhood between a savage and mad architect - Gifts from afar!!!

    Gifts from afar!!! Brotherhood between a savage and mad architect When I joined LJ I expected nothing, and here I am 297 days later, so many kind people I have as buddies, a passion but best of all I got myself a third brother! Ok - you will probably say I'm crazy now, and I am - I'm the mad...
  2. Paperweight (a first attempt at a hand plane)

    This is my frustrating attempt to build a chisel shoulder plane to fix my shooting board problem, and now I have two problems. It's non functioning and now serves as an educational aide in addition to being a mediocre paperweight. Details in the related blog post.
  3. Shoulder plane take #2

    I had some more of the cut off Maple that I used for the other shoulder plane, which was essentially a copy of a molding plane converted to a shoulder plane. This time, I wanted to build a proper wooden shoulder plane. I looked at a few pictures on the Internet and went to work. The blade is a...
  4. Douglas Fir Bar Stool

    Made this stool of douglas fir in a 4×4' corner of a shared apartment, using hand saws and planes. The stretchers are stilts I made and then repurposed. I made the dowels by ripping a piece of cherry and running it through an improvised pencil-sharpener style dowel maker. Finally have some...
  5. First Shoulder Plane

    A DIV and Mafe inspired creation: My first homemade plane. The shavings shown are some of its first. I bought a blade from Hock, and basically followed the instructions in DIV's blog. I used a piece of maple that was lying around, as I was too chicken to try it for the first time on some...
  6. Hock Shoulder Plane kit

    I picked up a kit for building a shoulder plane from Ron Hock when I was at Woodworking in America. I just got to building it this past week. Here are pictures of the finished product. On my blog I've got more detail and video links. Part I Part II
  7. YASP – Yet Another Shoulder Plane

    This is my second handmade plane. I used the same Hock blade as before, but took a different approach to the build. I believe this one is easier, but maybe that is because it is my second. Anyway, this design has a one piece sole, with a rabbet that self aligns the side plates. This is the...
  8. Box

    Just to prove that I haven't been sitting on my hands, here's a box I made out of re-purposed lumber. I built a modular desk for an interior designer and didn't use the corner support(before that it was shelving). I showed up before it could be tossed and took it back to the shop. This is...
  9. Shoulder Plane, Bow Sander, Mallet - 2019 Spring Swap

    I had a great time participating in the 2019 Spring Surprise Swap. Tony (GR8HUNTER) was my recipient; this guy makes some amazing things. My gifts to him aren't lookers, but hopefully he finds them useful. Shoulder Plane: Wanted one for a long time. Unfortunately I ran out of time and...
  10. Skew Shoulder Plane for the Swap

    This was my project for the 2019 Spring Surprise Swap that I made for Phil Soper. I was inspired to try to make this after a friend of mine gave me a cruddy looking old shoulder plane that came out an old carpenter's tool box that was passed down to him. After cleaning the crud off the body...
  11. Plane Rack

    I finally got around to building a plane rack to go with the chisel rack I built earlier in the year. It doesn't hold all of my planes, just the ones I use most. I say that but like most people, I don't use all of the Stanley bench planes. They look cool though. I'm still in the process of...
  12. A Little Step Above

    Since I have been mostly writing in my Blog Section ,I thought I'd get started here in the project side with a 'short step up' to one of my weekend projects. The LOML decided on a new mattress for our bedroom and of course I leave most of the furnishing decisions up to her ( She does Have Good...
  13. wardrobe doors

    a set of wardrobe doors with a curved top rail….simple construction… stopped mortice and tenons with fox wedges and a 9×9 groove for the ply insert.. groves machined by a little dewalt trimmer and a simple strait jig..
  14. 5mm wide shoulder plane

    My first all steel plane,0-1 tool steel with a Mopane wedge.It is constructed with a 3mm core flanked in 1mm plates riveted together with 34 individual 2mm rivets,probably overkill but better to have too many than not enough.Annoyingly I seem to have misplaced my 2mm drill rod,something I only...
  15. Quilted Maple Shoulder Plane.

    I've developed a bit of a shoulder plane obsession of late & here is another offspring I've just welcomed into the growing ranks. She is made from some quite spectacular Quilted Maple,the ubiquitous African Blackwood,Lignum Vitae & has a core of Hard Maple.Her toe is adjustable so that any wear...
  16. Oak Coffee Table

    My daughter, who is single, had just moved into her new home and didn't have a lot of furniture, so I made this oak coffee table for her. I'm now in the process of building a sideboard for her. It's my first attempt at something that large.

  17. Luthier's thumb shoulder plane - the rhykenologist...

    Luthier's thumb shoulder plane now I finally think I owned my nickname rhykenologist You must think I have lost it now. Perhaps I did… This afternoon after finishing the blog about 11 mini planes, I heard a voice in my head: 'but MaFe, you did not make a shoulder plane and you only did Krenov...
  18. Shoulder plane

    This is my take on the shoulder plane. I used a veritas medium blade Here's a video on the build
  19. Side Table - Quarter Sawn Oak Again

    This is the first piece of furniture I built after some 25 years away from woodworking. The wood is from a huge white oak on our property. There was so much of it I could afford to have some quarter sawn. Learned some tricks for putting good clean edges on the top pieces without a jointer. The...
  20. Walnut, birch and maple mug racks

    I have a fondness for mugs, for some reason. Maybe because I invariably imagine them filled with fresh, black coffee. This is the first time I started with rough sawn lumber and used my planer to surface it. Not really complicated, but you have to start somewhere. I got to learn all sorts of...
