  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Workbench

    My version of a Roubo workbench. Front leg vise is amazing….my first use of this kind of set-up. I varied from the traditional by putting a twin screw vise on the end. I already had a good bench, but this setup is way better. Top is hard maple and some red oak. Base is pine. Leg vise is red oak...

  5. Toys for toddlers

    All these have movable arms and legs. Most about seven inches tall, Marvin the Martian is made of poplar and walnut. Others are made of poplar or pine. Our club makes thousands of toys every year so I plan to mass produce these four in addition to others I contribute. We give them to local...

    I'm tuning all my planes and right now I'm working on my Stanley #90. This the smallest of their shoulder planes. I've watched a good shoulder plane tuning video on FWW by Chris Gochnour and it is all straight forward. BUT, I'm worried about the sole since it is coated with nickel like the rest...
  7. Hand Tools
    Hello everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. I recently picked up a few planes on eBay (a No. 5 and a No. 7, might purchase the Veritas 60 1/2 and can't wait to get it) and I'm looking to flatten their soles. My question is this-how big does the reference plate have to be to...
  8. Hand Tools
    Hey everybody, So I was tending to my planes today and I noticed that my two favorite jointing planes, my 1874 Stanley no 6 and no 7, have soles out of square with the sides. This skew is worse on the no 6 than the 7. I was thinking that I could carbide scrape the soles down, but I am concerned...
  9. Hand Tools
    Hey everyone, new poster but I frequent the site. Just getting into woodworking with hand tools and I'm trying to source a jack plane. I found a stanley no.5c type 8 at a local thrift store. They want $55 which is on the higher end of what I would pay but it's the only local one I can find. The...

    Hi everyone I just spotted some sort of rust on my No7 jointer plane. It looks a bit weird and I hope it's nothing serious. It looks like snow flakes I need your advise, should i be worried? Do you recommend getting the flexible silicone abrasive blocks (Klingspor SandFlex) to remove the rust...

    Easily Flatten Your Sole When dealing with handplanes there are two main things you have to have. The first is a really sharp iron. This helps make some great shavings and you can tell a difference between a dull iron and a sharp one. The second important thing to have with handplanes is a flat...

    Hey guys and gals. Here is one of the more collectable Stanley planes, and in very collectable condition. I was going to keep this plane in my own collection, but have decided to offer it for sale here to Lumberjocks. I have included many pics but will answer any questions you may have. This is...
  13. Hand Tools
    So I just lapped the sole on my first hand plane, a Stanley 220 that I picked up at a local antique shop. From what I've been reading, I recon there are better options for a block plane (like a 9 1/2 perhaps). I cleaned it up nice and attempted to lap the sole today (granite tile and sandpaper...
  14. Hand Tools
    Long ago I came into possession of an old (but not classic) Stanley #5. Says Stanley #5 but there are no patent numbers or anything. I think my father bought it for some purpose. No idea why - he was a wonderful man but had two left hands when it came to tools. Anyway, this plane has been...
  15. Hand Tools
    I picked up a Stanley #4 1/2 smoother ( circa 1890ish according to Patrick's Blood and Gore) about a year and half ago for $5. The handle was busted in half and irreparable and it was a serious contender for the golden plane award (rust) but I really wanted a #4 1/2 to add to my fledgling...
