The final step in putting our vintage in-cannel gouge back to work is to re-grind and hone the bevel and back of the cutting edge.
On today’s show, I discuss order of operations for projects, workbench top board orientation, nails for a cabinet back, mixing hot hide glue without a glue pot, saw sharpening files, and flattening a workbench.
On today’s show, I discuss extending the working time of hot hide glue, using the “ruler trick” for plane irons, frame saws, and work holding.
On today’s show, I discuss keeping table tops flat, scratch stocks, hollow grinding, dealing with changing grain direction, and hand tool that I just don’t need in my kit.
In this video I answer questions like “How flat is flat enough?”, “What angle do you hone a mortise chisel?”, and I talk about options for saw filing vises.
On today’s show, I discuss jointing really long boards, making curved moldings by hand, using thinner lumber to make a thick workbench top, rounding the corners of plane irons, and starting a woodworking related side business.
On today’s show, I discuss a method for ensuring that large workbench leg mortises are square, controlling rust on items that can’t be stored in a tool chest, saw wrests, and and proper use of reference surfaces.
On today’s show, I discuss mouth opening on wooden planes, marking knives, leveling the bottoms of deep mortises, cambering a plane iron with a honing guide, and sharpening systems.
On today’s show, I discuss drawboring large tenons for workbenches, tools for spoon carving, plow planes, and camber on bench planes.
