I recently built myself a couple of continental European style frame saws, also called bow saws. Rather than making my typical style video where I do lots of talking and explaining, I decided to just let the camera roll while I shut up and worked. So enjoy the silence.
Today, we have the Patron Extra podcast from August 2017. In this show, I talk about the pros and cons of wooden and metal hand planes.
When hand made moldings are discussed, molding planes are typically the first tool that comes to mind. However, the scratch stock or beader is a simple tool that can be commercially made or shop made and can make beautiful, simple decorative elements with little expense.
In this video I clean, set up, and test out a Stanley No 39 dado plane.
You can never have too many squares in the shop, and wooden ones are super easy to make, in any size you need, even if you don’t already have a square.
In today’s video, I’ll show you how I make my improved version of the French marking gauge.
In today’s video, I discuss my method for tuning up and using a dado plane.
In the spirit of encouraging and enabling the use of joinery planes in the home shop, today’s video goes over tuning up and using an un-fenced rabbet plane.
No self respecting hand saw is complete without a proper nib.
Contrary to common belief, re-toothing a saw isn’t difficult at all, and doesn’t require any fancy expensive equipment. All it takes is a mil file, a tapered saw file (or two) and a little patience.
My most popular video on YouTube to date has been making the French style marking gauge. So here’s that original video for your enjoyment.
