  1. I had bought this plane last year because I'm a shooter and the name "Winchester" on a hand plane was interesting to me. So the intended use was to sit on a shelf in my "man cave", but I though this might be worth taking for a spin. To be honest, I've found it is such a good plane I may keep in the shop as a user. Anyway, I have no idea who made this plane for Winchester, but it sure looks like a Stanley. It my understanding that both Stanley and Sargent made them at one time or another. That matters not to me, I was OK with either. What did attract me to this was it's rather complete. A lot o
  2. Well, that should be enough tags. All that resaw work, to get some use out of leftover Ash..... Gave me a few decent boards, about 5/16" thick...after a good planing, to get things smooth...Laid out a few parts that the Single Brain Cell Sketch Up could come up with a "plan" Figure these can be drawer parts... 2 parts for a lid, 2 parts for the ends of the case, and 1 part for the back... Will need to joint a few edges....these two for the lid..later. Right now the ends need worked on.. Also, need to cut the back piece to match that ski
  3. I wrote this review some years ago now. Since my website is likely to be new for many here, this set of articles (4 in all) may be of interest. It is more than about the Veritas Custom Planes, and how to design your own, but about hand plane use.

  4. Just saw an ad on Craigslist for five Gegr Baldauf wooden hand planes, for sale for $50 for all five. Here is the listing if anybody is interested: https://wichita.craigslist.org/tls/d/five-rare-gegr-baldauf-wood/6619457965.html
  5. I read with great interest and relief for the outlook that James Krenov had with his hand tools, and sharpening, and maintenance. For years I have been put off by the many sharpening gadgets, guides, holders, science, bevel up, bevel down, yadayadayada. I have always thought that folks can get wound waaaay too tightly over the science of woodworking, and tooling, so much so they forget the joy of the actual woodwork. James Krenov had a very lax position on the sharpening of his tools, specifically hand plane blades. He sharpened free hand, never spent too much time doing it, never
  6. So last Friday, I spent most all afternoon and evening performing a series of small jobs for my step-father. The main one was repairing his clothes dryer plus a mixed bag of other things...while picking up my tools in the laundry room, he disappeared for a bit...when I went to check on him, he had pulled these off the fire place mantel where they've "resided" for years. He handed them to me and said "I want you to have these if you want them?" They belonged to his grandfather (a carpenter by trade)... This is not a tool gloat (well maybe just a little), but I was overwhelmed to rec
  7. Just saw the American Woodshop episode from this season where dufus builds a wall hung desk. Anyway, the part that made me think of you was his field trip to a school that teaches hand tool use. Called Little Miami Handworks, it's in Bellbrook (just outside of Dayton OH, for you out of state guys) and if you ever get bored with life, you could teach the same thing...they have nothing on your talents. They did have a slightly larger shop, but for what they charge they can afford it.
  8. David Finck is an artist woodworker, Luthier, plane maker and all around great guy. If you are interested in learning how to make a Krenov style hand plane, you must start by visiting David's website first.
  9. I have to brag about a book I purchased a couple weeks ago, it's been by my bed and I have been reading it every night before going to bed. A couple weeks ago I also built a mallet, and I loved the experience of building my own hand tools. It gave me a satisfaction knowing that a tool I need to use, I built! You can see my Big Ash Mallets by clicking on the link. Now, leading up to the subject of this topic, the wonderful and very interesting book, Making and Mastering Wood Planes by David Finck. The book is priced well, actually it's a great book that should probably have a higher
  10. For our East Coast woodworkers, Lie Nielsen is holding their annual open house for 2015 on July 10-11. Lie Nielsen is located in Maine, so if you are anywhere near Maine, as small a state as Maine is, it could be very close to you! If you go please report back to us and let us know how it went. Click on the image to be taken to the Lie Nielsen website for the location of their company and more details.
  11. Cleaning up the shop, putting away the toys, er tools. Spied a black box Hmm, wonder what I stashed in there? Opened it up, found a couple wood bodies for a few hand planes, eh....and a few of these That long sucker is a 5/8 Bowl gouge. If I recall correctly, and it was a yard sale item that cost a $1. Four Craftsman chisels, and four that were I think from Harbor Freight. Went back and cleaned these all up. Now the problems arise. You see, there isn't any room for them in this box and the lathe these w
