  1. What's on your work bench? This is the official topic for images and friendly chatter regarding that all important surface, the personal statement of your shop, the steadfast friend we can always count on, the space of your shop that nobody knows better than you, we are talking about the almighty "Work Bench". Submit your images now! That's right, don't clean it up, don't be embarrassed, the messier the better, or if there is nothing on it at all, that is fine too. If you have not touched your bench in years, and you have taken a break from woodworking and have boxes pile
  2. From the album: Collage of Interesting Images

    Just a really neat ol picture of some loggers.
  3. Ok...this is NOT going to get it.. Made to hold 16 saws....right now it also holds that weight in dust...something better needs built. Something that will enclose this things, so that once I wipe them down nice and clean...they WILL stay that way. Have a couple 1 x 10 x 6' planks....will start cutting them down into box, of some sort. I doubt IF the plexiglass windows will work....plan is the hang the 3 panel saws running around in the shop on the inside of the doors. You can see a handle or two, peeking around the edge of this til... Stay tuned...this might get
  4. Well, still had a plank of Walnut sitting around in the shop. 6/4 by 10" by 4' long. Decided (for some strange reason) to try to resaw the plank to something a bit thinner..... Clamped it up on the bench. Ran a jointer plane along the edges. End closest to the camera? I wasn't about top plane THAT much off. Found a stick of Oak, and a couple c clamps. Plan was to go as deep and straight as I could, and work my way around all four edges.....that WAS the plan... Saw didn't like this kind of work. Either bogged down, or pulled to one side. Tried an end cu
  5. If you could start again with a NEW shop, if cost/space was not a factor, what basic shop machines would you buy? Table saw Chop saw Planer Vacuum system Any others you want to list. Your dream shop
  6. I was asked in 2015 to bring some old tools in for a presentation as part of our local library centennial celebration. While not an expert, I am somewhat versed in the subject as a hobby and so I presented for about 15 minutes that night about tools at the turn of the century. Fast forward 4 years and I was asked to return. I talked for 90 minutes on basic hand tool design and use, makers marks, electrolysis rust removal, refinishing and whatever else came out in questions. My 11 y.o. Daughter helped me at the first showing and spent 10 minutes talking with the crowd about her planes and
  7. I have been posting some of my furniture builds. Here are are few of the tools I have made. There are details and pictorial on my website for those interested in making their own: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/index.html A few of these have been featured in Fine Woodworking magazine. This is one - a bridle plough plane ... The plough is based on the Mathieson Bridle Plough. The “bridle” is the method in which the fence is attached to the arms. For centuries many methods have been offered to ensure that the fence runs parallel to the skate. The bridle appe
  8. About froze me tailfeathers off, this morning.....a BREEZY 50 degrees....second sale of the morning was a Barn Sale....TOOLS!....wound up spending $4..as i turned down another 3 axes. First items? Screwdrivers are addicting! Same with squares. North Bros. No.30A with 3 patent dates, and a tip. The square got a good cleaning up when I got home...has an etch: Winchester Trade Mark Made inUSA saw plate with a nib? Belongs the the larger of the 2 saws Was trying to find any sort of an etch....Bigger saw has the nib, and has brass split nuts..
  9. Ladies and Gents, I intend to spend time in the shop this summer. Time to tool up. I have a standard marking gauge, the kind with the spike on it. I don't like it much, it follows the grain. I see a lot of youtubers using a metal marking gauge with a rotary cutter on it. Who uses one of these, do you like it, and what brand do you recommend? Same question for saws. If I were buying a tenon saw or panel saw, what brands should I consider?
  10. A fellow that was not only a farmer, but worked to restore farm items, and also fixed up and sold cars and trucks....was having an "Estate Sale/Auction today... Located on a hilltop, over-looking the Great Miami River in DeGraff, OH. Parking was....the usual...found an old farm lane to a house that USED to be on the property ( along with a dozen other people) and parked the van.....found out I was only half way up the hill....to get TO the auction, I had to "take the high ground" ....Number on my bidding card was almost 400 ( 398!) walked around awhile....found a pile of saws laying
  11. Have ya'll heard of Jim Bode Tools, ya, pretty cool. They are advertised in the MWTCA Gristmill. Have fun! https://www.jimbodetools.com/collections/whats-new
  12. Put things away when I get done....yeah...right.... See anyone you know? But wait, there is more.. One more time? Some things do get put away, though.. Couple open spots....I put a few things away..and something else takes their place.. But...it at least had some work to do... That steel ruler? Not just a yardstick.....a Tinner used it when making all sorts of "tin cans" I managed to get a little work done, today...inspite of the mess......
  13. Got to ride along to visit a small section of The World's Longest Yard Sale.....Stopped at about half of the sales we found...I think I bought items from 8 different vendors....spent..$18...Soooo, first up was a "Truckstop-like" place in Cartegena, Oh area, on US 127.....large barn for selling Golf carts, another for selling sporting goods, another was the gas station/deli/grocery.....and a few tents of vendors....and another long building full of antiques.. Prices were a tad too high, for me... and.. Next booth.. Table in the center of this booth..
  14. Went out Barn Sale-ing....two stops were....meh. a panel saw, and not much else at the first stop. Framer's square at the second one.. At least I can READ this $2 square...the saw? Once I got the rust off, a fully readable etch appeared. There is an "8" inside the "D" 10ppi, 20" long crosscut Panel saw....everything looked good.. Except Disston never used this type of medallion. Hmmm...spent $2.50 for the saw. After hammering the plate flat and straight, and the rust removed....had to set things aside...Road Trip to pick up the GrandBRATS...
  15. First off, I have two "orphans" to figure out what to do with Don't have any saw plates that match, the holes patterns are different than the plates I still have... Warranted Superior Medallions. Not sure what to do with these.... However, I did find one match for another handle.. As I have an Atkins handle.. Holes match! Need to clean the rusty plate and see IF there is an etch.....and see IF I can find out what model this was. Might have a bit of time this week?
  16. On the road trip from the Lumberjocks get together......trying to make it around curves and over mountains...back end of the pickup truck was FULL. Kept looking for ANY Antique Stores / Malls......got back into OHIO before we even found one open. To even get out of the Shindig, we had to load up as much of Charles Neil's "scrap wood bin" as we could. This is about half of my "share"..the rest is further back in that corner. Anyway, this is about tools.. These two are the "keepers" of the BUNCH... This one is only for the handle, plate
  17. Day one is done.....took two trips to do that, and bring the stuff home. Along with all the normal Friday stuff... Planes? Paid for three of them.. These two and a Great Neck thing hat was shaped like a block plane. I switched the front knob over to the Stanley No.4c, from the Stanley Defiance No. 3. The #4c is a type 10. More about these two later... Saws? It is a Disston....for tree trimming. Ugly teeth award.. Meh...have a few branches that need to be trimmed back....and First of two $1 handsaws...this is the better of the two. I
  18. Did not have much to do on the chisels,,,had a couple old saws, though Last year, I bought three saws for $3....one was a plastic handled Atkins...meh Number 2? Disston/HK Porter "Journeyman" saw. Even had the price tag on it. "etch" was a silk screened thing. Handle is a bit to blocky...soo. Saw #3? Same size, no hanger hole in the plate. Had a slight bend I had to fix. Still looking for an etch. Seemed to be a little older than #2. Still had a blocky handle....had Amazing what a bit of sanding can do. Hardware has been polished up.
  19. A bit of downtime today in the shop. Got to looking at those saws hanging up in the tills.....dusty, and spots of red growing? Time to take them down and clean them up. Dug through the piles, wiped down three Disston D-23s.....a Corsair 8ppi crosscut, But left the Disston Challenger rip saw alone for now..... Cleaned and added a finish to a few handles to brighten them up a bit....( rattle can Lacquer ) Soo, here is the results... Late 40s Disston D-8 with etch. 8 ppi crosscut, next.. Also, late 40s, I think this is a D-7? Might be a tad older, and maybe
  20. Remember when I picked this mitre box a while back? Well, what little rust and dirt that was on this, is now gone. Met a fellow from the Cinci, Oh area who had the saw that MIGHT work. Paid $20 for it. While not the 4" x 26"....I think I can make do with this 4" x 24" version ( was made for the Stanley 2244A box) So, here we go. Boards are a few pieces of resawn pine. I already tried one laying flat......saw is quite sharp enough for that...yet. I needed the pine blanks cut to length ( note the time stamp) Less than 2 minutes later
  21. Good Morning Friends, Well another Saturday has come around and today's quiz is as follows; What is the difference between a cross cut hand saw and a rip saw?
  22. Well, went past the Home Depot on the way home, thought I could get enough lumber for the drawers......Gold Plated Pine meant I could only get enough for three drawers. Got the lumber home, and into the shop....about wore me out. Thought I'd leave them until morning.....nope. Went back down to the shop, measured for a few crosscuts. Since I was still a bit worn out, I didn't get down a handsaw.. 6-1/2" Skil saw will work nicely. Got a front, a back, and a pair of sides cut out....had just under a foot of scrap left.....and then I went back upstairs...thinking I was done...
  23. Web-frames. What I use in a case to let drawers slide in and out. Made long before those new-fangled metal thingys ever came along. last episode, I had all the parts cut to length, to make 6 frames. Today? Well first a "prototype" was sawn out.. Yeah, a tenon. The problem today was how to make about 24 of these tenons, without a lot of time being used up. Hmmm, I have that Mitre Box, and it has depth stops I can adjust.. Right there, under the guide, is a brass collar. Loosen the set screw, and slide up until you reach the depth you want to stop at
  24. And since I can't go to the shop until tomorrow, decided to clean out the tool tote that sits here by the desk.. Ok, found a few hand saws....a big fancy hacksaw, a crosscut saw, and a very OLD Disston compas/keyhole saw......There are some HUGE rasps still in the bottom of the tote. Two brace drills, one in very good condition, the other one not really. There was an 8" long "Tri Square" that even had a level in the handle ( level works) Overall feel suggests it is by Stanley....There is also a "Defiance" combo square, The kind that has a slot for about half the length of the ruler.
  25. Had a case of gap-osis between the pages. After I finally got ALL the hinges installed....I clamped the box hinge side down in the end vise. I started out with a back saw, and then a crosscut saw. Saw was started in one of the gaps, and then I worked my way along. Each Gap was sawn the same way. Had to then open the box up, and finish things smooth with a plane, and a sander.....of course, some dummy forgot to bring the camera along......then had MORE errands to do... Finally was able to sneak back down to the shop..... Added dust covers on each end. Wi
