  1. Bubinga Winding Sticks

    A few months ago I ordered some lumber form an online source - 20bf of curly maple and 10bf of bubinga. Their prices were much better than the local source. Coupled with no sales tax and free shipping, it was a pretty good deal. I'd probably order from them again, but knowing the lead time is...
  2. Winding Sticks

    Inspired by Paul Sellers winding sticks design, I thought I would take a stab at it myself. I made these from mahogany. The inlay strip and center dowels are black walnut. The tab inlays are hard maple. I finished them with amber shellac and a light coat of finishing wax. I probably watched...
  3. Winding Sticks

    I never had a real need for winding sticks before starting on my workbench build. But dang if these things aren't handy little buggers! Made from Jatoba with Walnut and Ash constrasts. Build is detailed in this blog post if interested.
  4. Winding Sticks for Summer 2017 Suprise Swap

    This is a pair of Winding Sticks that I made for the Summer 2017 Suprise tool Swap. They are made out of Bolivian rosewood with hard maple inlay. I also used maple dowel to connect them together when not in use. These were made for GR8HUNTER in the swap.
  5. Bespoke Winding Sticks

    These pairs of winding sticks are made of tigerwood, leftover pieces from a previous hardwood flooring project. Inlay strips: maple, purpleheart, yellowheart (? - the name escapes me) and walnut. I used a plow plane to cut the grooves for the inlay strips and a skew rabbet plane to bevel the...
  6. Winding Sticks

    Over the last week I have been working on a lot of hand tools projects to help with making projects. Here is two sets of winding sticks I made to help with flattening boards. These both started from a log that I split, flattened and ripped into the winding stick strips. They have a dowel inlay...
  7. Winding Sticks Mania

    Hardwood winding sticks-such as these: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/319177-may occasionally need "tuning" because of seasonal changes. Winding strips made of manufactured materials, e.g., MDF and hardboard avoid that concern and are therefore maintenance free. These MDF/HB winding sticks...
  8. April Surprise Swap Take 2 1/2 !!!

    Okay this is a Grooving plane that I made out of Beech. The wedge is out of Walnut. It cuts a 1/4" groove about 1/2" up on the board. It's great for half blind dovetails when you need to get the groove inside the tail. The last pic is of a pair of Winding Sticks. They are made out of Bolivian...
  9. Simple Winding Sticks

    Proof that tools don't need to be complicated. I needed a pair of winding sticks to help with flattening stock. Looking around the house, I found package of paint stirring sticks from Home Depot. Already perfectly flat and aligned with each other, I just cut the shaped handles off, drilled...
  10. Winding Sticks

    I finally got around to making a pair of winding sticks. I made these from ash and walnut logs found in my firewood pile.
  11. CFrye's Tool Swap Beam Compass and Winding Sticks

    From the beginning of this Measurement and Layout swap I wanted to make a beam compass. I searched on line, repeatedly, and was surprised at how few I found that were all or mostly all wood. Nothing wrong with metal beams or trammells, just not what I wanted to do (although I was really tempted...
  12. Winding Sticks - School is in session!

    Want to learn hand tools, but the process on my own is very long and fraught with mis-steps. When Shannon (of The Renaissance Woodworker) decided to start his hand tool school, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to eliminate some of the trial and error. It is a subscription service...
  13. Shop-made Winding Sticks (3/4" (base) x 2" x 24"; maple)

    A few hours in the shop the other day allowed me to make a pair of winding sticks. I used the tablesaw to cut the stock to size and make the bevels; the jointer plane to joint and true the top and bottom edges; the shoulder plane and the block plane to clean up the machine marks on the bevels...
  14. Winding Sticks

    Hand made from quarter sawn sapele. I had some camel bone (who doesn't), so I used that for the white inlays and the black inlay is ebony. The centre markers are inlaid with New Zealand paua abalone and white mother of pearl. The sticks are 16" long x 1 1/4" high and 1" deep. The front faces are...
  15. Shelf for Wooden Planes and Miscellaneous Stuff

    Two racks into organizing my workshop and I still seem to be drowning in tools, so I thought I'd put up one of the shelves that I'd planned to put above the tool racks on two of the walls. Basically I just screwed a 44mm square batten to the walls and screwed the shelf to the underside of the...
  16. Winding Sticks

    Winding Sticks are essential tools when flattening stock with hand planes. I made this set with some left over quarter sawn Cherry. The Ebony strip is from inlaybanding.com and the "Ivory" pieces are actually Micarta and sold as Gibson guitar nuts from stewmac.com 18" wide x 1 1/4" tall x...
  17. Infill Winding Sticks

    I like everything about Lee Valleys Winding Sticks aside from their light weight and their non-traditional look. I filled mine with quartersawn Beech scales, with an Ebony strip to increase contrast. How I did it can be seen here.
  18. The New Traditional Woodworker-Project #4-Winding Sticks

    Lately, I've had my nickers in a twist. That's English for having a hissy fit. And fit I had, when I resawed some quarter-sawn oak-lovely rays and all-only to "flatten" it. But not really, because it had some wicked twist. Crap. Guess I'm going to have to make some winding sticks. Oh yeah. And...
  19. Winding Sticks

    I made these from some left over wood from a try-square I'm making. The wood is Macacauba and quite straight grain. Are lots of ways to go about making them. Mine have holes so I can hang them and I will paint a target on the one if need be. I haven't had a lot of experience using them so I'm...
  20. Winding Sticks

    I have been using two 12" steel rules as winding sticks, but trying to make them stand up is a challenge and I feel like 12" isn't quite enough to really see what kind of twist I'm dealing with. So, I wanted to make some winding sticks. I used some red oak I had laying around and added ash dots...
