  1. Small Shoulder Plane

    Hi Folks This is a plane a customer requested - a shoulder plane with a 10mm width. The timber is Santos Rosewood and it has a solid brass sole. This plane is tiny, measuring 140mm long and 45mm tall. It is a little delicate but works perfectly. I found working on such a small scale quite...
  2. 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...
  3. 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.

  5. Bubinga Shoulder Plane

    I needed a shoulder plane for a project but already blew my tool budget on a Lie-Nielsen rabbet block plane (no regrets!). So I downloaded plans from Woodcraft, ordered a blade from Hock Tools, picked up a nice piece of bubinga from Rockler and cranked this baby out on a Sunday afternoon. Works...
  6. More Thorsen Pics

    I was not overly fond of the original pictures of my table so I had DW snap a few more. Her eye tends to be a little finer than mine . . . so she keeps telling me. :-)
  7. Ubiquitous Fantasy RPG Wooden Sword

    Perusing random YouTube videos can be dangerous. One night while jumping around different videos I came across this video to make a wooden sword by HappyAtom. My wife shook her head when the glint of "scrap wood project" appeared in my eyes. After scrounging through my pile of scrap wood, I...
  8. Old Fashion Climbing Bear Toy

    I am trying to make a tradition to make some sort of wooden gift for my kids every year for Christmas. Something that will last and something that they can pass on. I have two young kids, so I'm hoping that every year I can make something that they will play with a while as they grow. Last...
  9. shop made hand tools

    I have seen so many of the incredible planes and tools you all have, I thought I would risk your wrath and just share a couple of mine, The planes are pretty typical, I think the only unusual thing may be the corian throats I have put in a couple, other than that, just nice comfortable little...
  10. Hand Tools
    So, Some shepherd infill hand planes (smoothing and shoulder) have come my way recently along with a collection of Lie-Nielsen and veritas planes. The Nielsen and veritas planes have found a happy home but I'm looking to part ways with the Shepherds to cover costs on the others. I know they...
  11. Hand Tools
    I am interested in adding hand tools to my collection. I am set to take a few planecraft classes within the next few months and wanted to get some opinions. I am currently looking at a block plane, a smoothing plane, and eventually a shoulder plane. I can say for now most of my jobs will be...

    I have become overwhelmed by the information on wood finishing. I have always stained and then used poly. It is obviously not the only way. I have been browsing the catalogs and the choices are just too much. What is your favorite way to finish a project and why? Please be specific, for...

    Beautiful Record 073 Shoulder Plane with full length iron. I don't think this tool was ever really used. I have been looking forever for one of these and in two weeks I ended up with two. Since I can only use one, I am selling the other one. This is a beautiful tool in near perfect condition. I...

  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'm doing my first mortise and tenon piece, and I'm wondering what different techniques people use to round over tenons when making mortises with a router (1/4 inch in this case). My thought was to use a flush cut saw to cut a kerf at the shoulder of the tenon then use a chisel to split/shave...
  17. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi All, I'm in the process of making table for the living room. I just completed the tenons for the ends and not ending up square. I can't seem to get the shoulder cut square with the leg. I examined the leg, it's flat and true when I looked at the shoulder, (with a square) it was "wavy"...
