    Lapping planes correctly

    Simply put... I suck at it. I bought a piece of fairly thin glass from home depot and have adhered sandpaper to it using spray adhesive. I put so much time and sweat into trying to lap my Stanley #4...

    I tried a couple weeks ago but they said they sell out same day they come in and they aren't expecting any more until February.
  4. Is a fenced router plane a poor substitution for a plow plane?

    I was considering purchasing the veritas small plow plane for cutting grooves and dadoes, but man is it expensive. I also need a router plane for other (more general) purposes. I noticed that the...

    That is an excellent idea. Sometimes the simple solutions just slip right by me as I strain my brain working through needlessly-complex ones. I even know this place in Mesa like 15 minutes away that...

    I really appreciate all the help. I have read that book, but the reason I looked away from the english bench is because the apron makes it difficult (or impossible) to clamp things to the bench top.
  7. Torsion box workbench for hand tool use?

    I was all set to use a laminated douglas fir top for my new workbench (basically hand tool only use), but I asked for tips on ripping the lumber without a table saw over in the general woodworking...

    Oops I meant to tell you what I was making but totally forgot. I'm laminating them together for a bench top.
  9. How to safely rip 2x12 lumber without a table saw?

    I need to accurately rip some 2x12 boards into multiple 2x3.5 boards. They are about 5 foot long. Because this is home center lumber (douglas fir) I also need to knock the rounded corners off.

    They are on the northern edge of the Phoenix metro area. I live right in the middle of it about 30 miles away. They had much more intense weather than we did I guess.

    Fallen Sissoo tree... turning blanks?

    There was a nasty storm last night at my parents house and their fiarly large sissoo tree blew over. It's probably about 25-30 feet tall (but I'm not good at eyeballing these things). I guess it was...

    It's way more satisfying than I ever imagined it would be. I see so many planes sold as "rustic decor" because people think they're useless. It's nice to feel like you saved a piece of history from...

    Not at all hard to believe. I routinely see plain old Baileys in antique stores for over $90. In fact I don't think I have ever seen one in restored condition for less than $100. I will take the $15...

    I decided to remove the paint since it's not collectable anymore anyway. Plain old paint stripper made short work of it.

    You're right about the blade. After cleaning it up I can see the markings....
