    Issue: After running stock through my 6" Jet (dovetail ways), it comes out with an ever so slight rock along the width of jointed side of the board.

    Milling the Lumber While my other boxes are receiving their final finishes, I have decided to start on another pair of boxes. The design is based on something I saw in a book, but I can not remember which at this moment. They are short (probably only 1-1/4" tall) and not very long (about...

    What was your first experience with handplanes? Mine was about 7 years ago, I still wasn't doing anything woodworking like, and we had moved to a new apartment where the bathroom door wouldn't close since it was too tall and would hit the jamb (well- actually we mounted one of those...

    Raw materials I started out with a fairly hefty workbench from the house's previous owner, but it's in a place not appropriate for a woodshop, and it's not easy to move to where I do want my shop (the garage). Given that the space that it's in is my main art studio, and it's useful for that, I...

    Recalibrate your table saw, duh! You know, it may seem like common sense to recalibrate your table saw every once in a while. But for the life of me I can't figure out why I have not done so to mine over its five years of use! I think I just hoped it'd maintain that wonderful precision that I...

    Plane frog and cap iron adjustment I have read a great deal of tutorials on plane tuning and restoration processes over the last few weeks. Before getting started on my plane accumulation, I wanted to be as educated as possible. Most tutorials contain excellent information on the basics of sole...

    Planes Restored - Because i can. Throughout my many years of marriage, my wife has constantly dragging me on her antiquing outings. At some point I decided I needed to find a way to make the time useful. One day while looking over my 3 hand planes and knowing they needed serious tune ups, I...

    First you gotta do some thinking...and find iron During the recent posting by Bertha on the hand planes of our dreams, the issue of wooden shoulder planes came up. I had some requests and PM's to blog on the making of a wooden shoulder plane so I will give it my best shot. Be warned, I work in...

    Organizing for the New Year I like to start off a new year by getting my shop in shape. After the busy holiday season, offcuts are piled everywhere, edges are dull and the deficiencies in the workspace are sharp in my mind. Shortly after Christmas, I set to work making a new stand for my...

    Introduction When we moved to Santa Fe last year, I had planned to build new bookcases for the house. In my old house in Minneapolis, I had built-in bookcases, and the house here in the Southwest needs a different look. So I looked around a little, and decided to build the Jefferson...

    Kanna Just finished setting up my first Kanna. I like it - why did I wait so long to get one! I've filmed my setup procedure, which was based on various articles and videos online (big credit to fellow LJ Mafe, and his blog post), and will be posting a video to YouTube in the near future. I...

    Kanna Setup Video Had a lot of fun producing my video on the setup of my first Japanese plane ('Kanna'). It's tempting to leave the entire process in, and much easier too, but for the sake of viewer sanity I cut out periods of sole and bed scraping, and blade lapping, etc. just leaving enough...

    I usually find the answers I need just by lurking here, but I haven't found what I needed yet, so here it goes. I have a Wood River #6 that I really like. It is the second version, not the V3. I am finally getting around to making a shooting board, and would love to use the #6 with the...

    Hi all, I've had a wooden-bodied hand plane for over 10 years that I've never really used. I got it from the sculpture department in my university because they had six of them that had never really worked too well. Here's a description: It looks to me like beech, with a lighter-colored wood...

    Hello, The neighbor of ours, among many other tools, keeps a table saw (Delta) and a jointer in his garage, which he has said I am welcome to use. They are at least 20 years old, little used and haven't been turned on for a long time (there are speckles of rust spots on the jointer table). I...

    I recently acquired my first thickness planer from a craigslist ad- a Delta 22-560 in "ok" condition. For $150 it was just what I was looking for. Seller was up front about the fact that the planer had fallen once years ago, and bent the infeed table. upon further inspection it was bent away...

    Hello everyone! I'm an amateur of woodworking in Taiwan. Few days ago, I bought an inventory 15" bandsaw from the manufacturer, and this one is almost the same with the model Craftex CT015N once sold by BusyBeeTools in Canada. (img sourcehttp://canadianwoodworking.com/tools/14-band-saws)...
