Stanley 71 Router Plane Box from Pine & Meranti

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Stanley 71 Router Plane Box from Pine & MerantiI made this box last year after I got my Stanley 71 router plane from ebay and restored it a little. I was just getting into box making at this time, but I did spend a lot of time on this box to get everything right. I actually made a box for the router plane before this but screwed up the measurements and it ended up being a tad bit too small to fit everything.I made quote a few mistakes with this one, but covered them up. Let's just say that the meranti inlay for the lid was never in the plan, but there were some pretty horrible tearout there that I wanted to hid.If I do this box again, I will make it a bit thinner and probably not use pine at all.

Stanley Bailey No. 7 Plane Restoration

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Stanley Bailey No. 7 Plane RestorationI couldn't figure out where this should be posted, but saw that there were several refurbished hand planes in the projects library and decided to put it here. I apologize if it's the wrong place, it's not very clear where to post it…...I guess it has wood handles and sure as heck was a PROJECT for me! :)I finally got back to finishing up my No. 7 Stanley Bailey Hand Plane after setting it aside about a year ago. Purchased on eBay and it was in rough shape. I started to flatten the sole and found that it was WAY off. I worked on it so long that I just tapped out and put it up.I pulled it out 3 days ago and spent about another 5 hours getting the sole flat and my arms are feeling it!Completely stripped, painted, lubed, sharpened, and buffed everything.I love to breathe new life into old tools and appreciate using them knowing the work that I put into it. I'm not a Stanley Plane historian, but “think” this Type 19 (1948-61). I refurbished a No.8 about a year ago and have it next to the No. 7 in the photo. I purchased the Veritas A2 replacement blade for the No. 8 and will probably do so for the No. 7. They are much thicker and cut extremely well.The original blade did pretty well after getting it all tuned and sharpened up.Enjoy,
-Hutch

Chart Hat Box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Chart Hat BoxI just built this hat box for a newly selected Coast Guard Chief. He came to me with an idea to incorporate a marine chart on the inside of the box and certificates from special events in his career like crossing the Equator and going above the Artic Circle. I used my CNC machine to cut pockets for the certificates. Our laser machine was used to cut pieces of acrylic to fit in the pockets and hold the certificates in place. The glass on the front was also laser engraved with USCG emblems chosen by the customer. These images were reversed and cut on the inside of the glass leaving the outside nice and smooth. The top has rank, rate and warfare devices imbedded along with the individuals name VCarved into the wood. The chart on the inside covers the bottom, both sides and the back (also covered by acrylic) and includes the exact area where the recipient is stationed. A puck light was installed on the inside to illuminate the Chiefs Cover. We also designed and cut an acrylic stand that holds the hat 1” off the bottom of the box creating a floating effect. The customer provided the ideas, I did all the woodwork and my wife did all the laser work. Together I think the three of us came up with a really nice hat box and an heirloom to be passed down for generations.
