Stanley No 40 scrub plan rebuild

Furnished content.

Stanley No 40 scrub plan rebuildThis is a rebuild of a Stanley No 40 scrub plane body (and one tote screw).I made the knob and tote from a very dense mahogany. The knob needed a 12-20 threaded bolt, which we know does not exist in normal life. So i took a 1/4-20, chucked it in a drill and cut the threads down to the right diameter with a triangle file.The cap iron is mild steel that I shaped and put a 1/4-20 thumbscrew into. I had stainless steel blackener, so I made it dark to match the plane. The iron is extra thick, so the lever cap had to be thinner than a Stanley orig.The iron is a 3/16 thick A2 steel. I'm pleased (surprised) with it. I shaped and ground it, then hardened it in a little plaster of paris furnace and a MAP torch. The hardening went more than an inch from the edge, so it should be good for many sharpenings.I put quite a few hours into this one, but unlike some other projects, I am very proud of the result.

guitar stand

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


guitar standMy daughter is slightly interested in the guitar, so i found a cheap one and made a quick stand for it. All cherry leftovers, with cork strips where the guitar touches. Through mortices, and danish oil as a finish.I taped off the cork with blue painters tape, and that kept the oil off the cork very well. I kinda like what I ended with the feet.I got an immediate grin, “thank you” and “I like it”, so that was worth it. If she keeps at it, I might have an excuse to make a guitar.

Cherry Bassinet Rocker

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Cherry Bassinet RockerSo this is a bassinet I just finished for a buddy's daughter due 7/1. This is pretty much an original design though I had some inspiration from a brother lumberjock.This was sort of an impulsive project, under pressure of delivery before delivery. I'll drop it off tomorrow. Because of the rush I made some stupid mistakes, nothing the end of the world, but, you know, you look closely and they're glaringly obvious.Materials:Cherry
Walnut wedges
Birch plyJoinery (mostly by hand saw with an assist from the drill press):castle joints at the top (4)
wedged mortise and tenon, Krenov style (6)
bridle joint for the rocker (4)Rungs were fun. These are 3/8 x 3/4 with a 3/8” linear radius and recessed about .2 on upper and lowers. I made the end panels first, then discovered it's near impossible to install the long sides without neighbors falling out. Persistence, a flexible material and some creative clamping did the trick.On advice of recent mom, made a set of stops for the rocking motion as well these are sort clunky but functional.I do have a video of the rocking motion, but not sure how to post a .mov file.I like that this is very light weight, has a natural finish, and that the surround is enclosed by rungs so you can see the kid from any angle. Mom hasn't delivered yet, so we should get there ahead of schedule. Thanks for looking.
