  1. Spokeshave and Wooden Plane

    This is also a class project from my Woodworking Classes at Palomar College. I took the hand plane class and we referbished a used plane (show that next time) and built a wooden plane and a spokeshave. The best part of the class is learning all about planes and how to use them. I can hardly...
  2. Wooden plane for my 3 year old son

    On Father's Day I got the gift of some uninterrupted shop time in the morning and early afternoon. Felt good. That evening my 3 year old son Milo asked me what I was doing, and I said I was making things. He said, "Daddy, can you make me something?" Why not? So I told him that I would. He, of...
  3. Japanese tool box

    For our 5 year anniversary, I made my wife this Japanese tool box. The 5 year is the "wood" anniversary, and my wife lived in Japan for a time, so I thought it would be a nice tribute. The box is made from white pine and meranti. The meranti accent pieces were toned with aniline dye in shellac...
  4. 62 degree, left handed plane

    This is a hard maple, 'Krenov' style plane with the blade bedded at an angle of 62 degrees. 17 degrees higher than the standard pitch makes it a safer bet on figured and hard tropical woods. There's no cap iron (works fine without one). The wedge is rosewood with mother-of-pearl inlays. I use a...
  5. 14 degree wooden dovetail plane

    This is one of a couple wooden DT planes from last winter that allows you to adjust sliding dovetails made with a standard 14 degree DT router bit. Always amazed how sliding DT joints can go from a no-go interference fit to a hopelessly sloppy fit by simply nudging the router fence a 'tad'. I...
  6. Wooden Smoothing Plane

    I have been an amateur wood worker for over 30 years. I have never taken any instructional classes in woodworking. However, I saw this class on making a Krenov style wooden plane offered at Philadelphia Furniture Workshop. I have an affection for hand tools, so, I attended the class taught by...
  7. My asian twist on the end table

    I needed a small end table for my side of the bed. This is what i ended up with. This project is mostly made of curly maple, the drawer is cedar, and the handle is walnut sent to me from fellow LJ cplant. The finish is rubbed poly. The legs are a bent lamination. The box and drawer are hand cut...
  8. "Autumn" hand plane

    I haven't been on here forever. I have been working for a company and decided that I wouldn't post anything I made for them. It's their product. But recently I've been making some knives and decided to make a few hand planes. This is the first one and I am in the process of making the 2nd one...
  9. Notepad

    This is another trial piece - I wanted to make a small notepad that was kinda cool to use. Backing: plywood Notepad: $1 store item Cover: doeskin leather Design: stamped Wolf, outlined with pyrography, and "Notes" in pyrography
  10. shooting board plane

    This wooden plane addresses the discomfort and wobble of a Stanley #5 used as a shooting board plane. Its mechanism is a Veritas 2 1/4 A2 blade and Norris adjuster. The plane is 12 inches long and roughly 2 1/2 inches square. As it is intended to be used right side down. I put the greatest...
  11. Thor-Inspired Trophy - For a customer's fantasy football league

    A gentleman in San Antonio commissioned me to make a Thor-inspired trophy for his fantasy football league. I know next to nothing about football and even less about an imaginary version of football, but I do know wood. The customer specified that the pommel be inlaid with the Greek letter...
  12. guitar

    My version of the Telecaster guitar. Mahogany used throughout is reclaimed from a 30yr old front door. Wilkinson pickups were used and sound very nice. wax finish.
  13. Purpleheart Planes

    Here are 2 planes I have made from purpleheart. They are both krenov-style construction. The large one is almost as long as a Jack plane, and I use it with a heavily cambered iron for fast & rough removal, basically a scrub plane. The little one is a smoother, 52 deg. pitch, using a...
  14. A Bunch of Small Wooden Planes

    For some time I am subscribed to Paul Seller's Woodworking Masterclasses. The first project I did myself was the one about wooden planes [behind paywall but there are accompanying blog posts ]. I made a small series with different blade angles and sole profiles to try the feasability of custom...
  15. High angle smoother

    The good thing about making your own planes is you can make task specific ones and not worry about wasting a lot of money. This is a9 1/2" long razee style smoother made from Ash with a 55 degree bed angle. It's the hand plane equivalent of 400 grit sandpaper. It's difficult to push, but I use...
  16. Business card holders

    I made these from a wood magazine plan as others have in the past. See Chuck M and BreakingBoardom. The card holders are made essentially the same as the directions except for Chuck's suggestion to laminate the hinges from 3 pieces. I think they would have looked better with more figured...
  17. Engagement Ring Box

    This was a small box made from walnut and maple. Most of the work was done on the bandsaw. Finished with poly
  18. Stanley #31 Transitional Plane Restoration

    This is a plane I just restored. It's a Stanley #31 Transitional Plane that I picked up while on vacation. The second picture is the before. More information and pictures are available on my blog.
  19. Krenov Style Smoother

    This is my first wooden handplane. It took me a weekend to make… mostly because I re-read David Fink's book 2 or 3 times during the build process, but didn't follow his process exactly. It's made out of somekind of oak that I had lying around, with a cherry (sapwood) cross pin, and a walnut...
  20. A 2" Fingernail plane...

    OK, I'm lying. It is actually a little under 2 ½" long. A real pocket plane….a baby smoother…a tiny trim plane…I decided to call it a fingernail plane :^) It would seem I have a nasty case of rhykanitis! Following all the recent plane talk on LJ's, I had the urge to make yet another plane…...
