    I wouldn't be intimidated by card scrapers. I bought the Lie Nielsen card scrapers and they are great tools. Think it was like $20 for the pair.

    They show a mini cabinet scraper on there. A card scraper will do the same thing. The cabinet scraper just keeps it flatter so you don't dog in as easily and leave a dent. What kind of project will you be doing where that sized dado is made and would need to be cleaned up? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    I have the apron plane and it is awesome. I just purchased the cabinet scraper. It will be here on Monday. Are you sure about getting the mini planes? I would hold off and start with the apron plane. It's my favorite plane and I use it all of the time. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Built a tapering/straight line jig for my microjig dovetail clamps. Simple build that I'm sure will get some good use out of. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  5. Rrich1's shop project builds.

    With the table done and gone and me now having my vise screw it is time to try and finish the bench. Between watching the kids today and housework, I was able to get some shop time in. I made the garter for the screw and got it attached. I also attached the nut to the leg as well. The nut was slightly bigger than the leg so I trimmed it to fit. I countersunk the screw holes with a forstner bit as the kreg screws were not long enough on their own. It came out really well. I am waiting on a handle from Lee valley to get here so I will hold off on drilling the handle hole. I can tell it is not going to be fun to drill a large hole through all of this hickory for the handle. Up next is trying to figure out a parallel guide system. I think I am just going to go old school with a guide and pin. I have an awesome piece of hickory that will work perfectly. I like the Jay Bates' approach with the wedge but my bench is mobile and I don't feel like having to deal with moving that as well. I can't wait to see this hickory with finish on it. It's going to look amazing. Also a helpful tip for today. I did this a week ago and did it again today. The piece of wood I used for the garter was too short to run through the planer on its own so I glued it to a longer piece of wood with CA glue. Worked perfectly and the larger piece takes any snipe if there is some. Just make sure to put it in the middle of the longer piece. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Vise screw is here! Hard maple screw and nut. My father in law turned it on a lathe and router at his work. Came out awesome. Turns pretty smooth now. Will get even better when I put some wax on it. I laminated the hub with hickory and he cut it to a nice shape to mimick the Acer ferrous screw. I still need to drill a hole for the handle, make a garter for it, and finish it. I still have the gaming table curing the last coat of finish in the garage right now so no making saw dust at the moment. Maybe next week. We shall see. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  12. What tools did you buy today?

    Since I plan to resaw some 12" wide boards here soon I figured a double decker feather board was in need. I also got my vise screw from my father in law today! Woohoo! More pics and info in my building thread. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    3rd coat is on and drying. Trying to figure out if I am going to buff this out or not. I've only buffed one thing out before. Going to need to do some research. Super happy with it so far! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    3rd coat (2nd poly coat) went on last night. Hoping to get the last coat of poly on tonight. . Just might be able to get it to them by Thanksgiving. Would like it to cure a little longer though. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
