  1. Find at local flea market

    Just bought all of these from the flea market for a real reasonable price and thought i'd like to share them with you. The first plane is a Stanley 60 1/2, the second plane is a Stanley 9 1/4, and the third is a Starrett slide square. I cleaned all of them off a little bit with some RustFree...
  2. Tavern Table Renovation

    It was twenty years ago that the tavern table (poker table, card table, pocket table) shown in the picture above was pulled out of an alley shed set for destruction. Long (early part of this) story short, the top had come apart at the glue joints and was black from the ravages of time and...
  3. 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...

  5. Turned Bottle Openers

    I was having some fun on the lathe, and made a few different bottle openers to practice. Purpleheart, Padauk, and Marblewood. I ended up making another one out of maple similar to the Marblewood one, but didn't get a picture of that one. The padauk handle opener was the first one I made, and...
  6. Death's head intarsia

    Cut intarsia with motif of Death's-head Hawkmoth.
  7. Beechwood smoothing plane

    Made this from scrap piece from a jointer plane I'm working on. Turned out pretty good. I'm using a piece of jatoba for the wedge and a 1/4" thick 2" wide iron from rhett over at nice planes.
  8. "Old School"

    I was playing around with some Sculpey clay a few weeks ago and came up with a funny looking fish that I liked. After I carved him, I got to thinking about what to do with him and came up with this little scene. It was fun thinking of what an "old school" fish might look like and I am already...
  9. Shop made smoothing plane

    Here's a little (big) smoothing plane I made recently. I wanted a nice high angle wooden smoother for tougher woods, and here is what I came up with. It is made of birch, kingwood, and sports a 3/8" thick ipe sole. The wedge is also kingwood, and like the front top edges of the sides, has just...
  10. Lord's Prayer in Spanish Cedar

    Just finished a small Christmas gift for my in-laws. I made good use of James Booth model (Vector Art 3D) of Jesus and Tim Merrill's (see Vectric forum article) glazing technique. Thanks guys for assisting with this gift-the end result, which the photos do not due justice, is much better than I...
  11. Desk Clock

    I've had a design in mind for a desk clock for awhile now and finally made it. It's inspired by 1930's Art Deco. It's made out of Santa Maria and Maple. I drilled a through hole in order to push the clock movement out when it's time to change the battery or set the time. No need to pry it from...
  12. A Tribute to one of my best clients

    I'm sure if we all look back, there is someone you can name that made a difference in your life. For me, that would have to be Mike and Suzy Hoch. I was maybe 24 yrs. old when I first met them. I had just moved to Lake Forest Illinois and was trying to promote my first short lived business...
  13. Scrap Wood Side Table

  14. 18th Century Wooden Coffin Shaped Smoothing Plane in Beech

    Just wanted to show off this smoothing plane. I have the downloadable plans for this plane here if you want to make it. I thought a few photos would help anyone that is trying to make one for the plane swap. Here are a couple of videos of it in use and another to show off some details. I...
  15. Adjustable Mouth Smoothing Plane and Hammer (2013 Plane Swap)

    Here is the plane I made for the 2013 Hand Plane Swap (I slept in today… hopefully I didn't miss the plane submission party). It's an adjustable mouth 8 1/4" 50 degree smoother made from jatoba, hard maple, walnut for the knob, a brass pin, and some mystery wood for the wedge. The iron is an...
  16. trash can

    Hi everyone, This was a fun project. My wife's boss wanted a custom made trash can to go in his office. He was very specif about the size and the color had to match (or at least blend in) his current furniture. After doing some research on the net I stumbled across http://mikefromwinton.com/...
  17. 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...

    Hi guys, First posting, but been reading the forum for a while now. Just been getting into using the card/cabinet scrapers…. Wow! I'm offically a convert. I have 5 of them from Lee Valley and Bahco. Over the past month I've watched every video on how to prepare the edge and burr. I've...

  20. Marketplace Classifieds
    Here for sale is a terrific Millers Falls No. 9 smoothing plane. The MF #9 is similar in size to a Stanley #4. If your not familiar with Millers Falls planes, they are every bit as good as vintage Stanleys, and much better than newer Stanleys. This one is in fantastic condition, likely dating...
