Re: Couple of questions for discussions.

[ Edited ]

Normally called a "half lap miter"  put together like this:

 

 

 

As for shoulder planes, I have a #92 that I got at an antique tool auction a number of years ago.

 

And a couple of bullnose

 

 

 

I got both of these over 20 years ago when I got interested in "old tools"   Still use them to fine tune rabbets, tenons, and tongue and groove joints.

Since getting my shoulder planes, life is so much simpler.

 

Stick, I made your router plane. It works pretty well.

Re: Couple of questions for discussions.

John for a strange reason I quit watching wood working shows long ago. I think I was happy with the way I did things and why would I want to change to another persons way. My wife would ask why I sat there and would argue with Norm or who ever it was I was watching. 

   Also doing wood working with the tools such as planes and the such is just not much fun. I do own  maybe 50 hand planes and 20 or so of the spokeshaves, if this is the proper name for these?. And have a few more back in the corner somewhere and am too lazy to hang the rest of them up.spokeshaves 001.JPG

 

I really don't know. I will buy these things if there are any in the auctions I attend to redo but I never use any of them. Just not my cup of tea. I take a list of the names of these hanging up and will buy more if they are made by different makers. To me one is not worth more than the next one..

   I think I am finally feeling my age. Hey I don't even enjoy backing the camper out and  and seeing a different part of the country like I use to.

  John you got lots of thoughts on your questions so I thought I would show the other side of wood working...my side..

Jess: Those are draw knives, not spoke shaves. They are used for initial shaping/smoothing of split or rived wood, usually used with a draw horse.

Re: Couple of questions for discussions.

Thanks Jon I better go and check these other things I been collecting all these years . I might have been buying papeweights instead of wood planes......Matter of fact that is the only thing I use them for. Three of four of them will keep my plans from rolling back up.........I wonder if I got any spoke shaves.

John -

 

The "Just-Right Joinery" in issue 204, page 20, featured "Super-Strong Mitered Half-Laps" and showed the technique for making them.

 

I'm with Keith on using the antique Stanley Bull-Nose plane...it works great for me!  I have not felt the need to spend big bucks for new and shiny.

 

Dave.
