2 pointsThe other day I went to a pawn shop with my younger brother. At first I didn see anything that interested me. I walked over to a bin with some books and odds and in in it. The gentleman who worked there told me that everything in that bin was only $0.50 each. After a few minutes of rummaging thought his bin I came across a small hand plane. First thing I noticed was it was missing its blade but it felt like all the other parts were intact on it. So I took it to the register and paid for it. The gentleman asked me what it was because he didn't have a clue. When I got home a did some research on the internet and I believe I have a Stanley - 75 Bull Nose Rebate Plane. Now all I have do is get a blade for it and I have another hand plane for my shop. Here's 3 pictures of the hand plane that I just got.
1 pointSo far I have had a pretty productive 4th weekend. I haven't gotten everything I wanted to done but I never do so the list just keeps going. I did however finish the Really Big 3X Cutting Board. Here it is with my normal large cutting board laying on top. I am also working on an Island Shelf that is made out of Cherry. It will be 60" long x 25" wide and 1 1/2" thick. I glued it into two pieces and the put the two pieces together. Just got to get the final sanding done and apply a finish. Hope to finish it by the end of the week. I also got the Grizzly DC out of the box and put together. I didn't get to work on my wiring to the shop so it isn't plugged in yet. Rain here all day Friday and Saturday so I couldn't work outside pulling new wire to the shop. I might have to pull it over to another plug just to hear it run for a minute. After all that, burgers on the grill, homemade Peach Ice Cream, Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies and Rice Crispy treats. Wow was I stuffed. Hope you all are having a great 4th and enjoying family, friends and getting to do what every you want to. I'll catch you on Monday and see how you did over the weekend.
1 pointVery Nice on the writing desk Steve and the live edge on the back in a neat touch. Excellent craftsmanship.
1 pointHave to apply a few more coats of oil to this thing, might take all weekend another look? and the backside of the desk? Top is a Live edge thing, with Walnut plugs covering the screws Not too bad for a Single Brain Cell Sketch-up design?
1 pointI used to reorganize- then it took me twice as long to find stuff.
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
