Adjustable Mouth Krenov-style Plane Finished

March 14th, 2017

This was my third time making a Krenov-style plane, but my first time incorporating an adjustable mouth into one.  These are always a lot of fun to make and also very enjoyable to use.  They admittedly  take a little practice to learn how to use them properly, but once you get the gist you’ll find yourself reaching for them instead of your steel planes.

I plan on having the build video ready for this Friday and I hope you’ll give it a look.


A Modern Lamp

March 8th, 2017

I recently completed a lamp from scrap cherry and it was really a lot of fun to build.  The lamp requires very little wood and is relatively easy to build, but it packs a big punch in appeal.  For the lamp cord, I used some left over antique-looking fabric covered cord that I used on a previous lamp build.  The lamp cord is exposed as it travels up to the lamp socket for a cool look.

I plan on releasing the build video on Friday and I’ll also be providing very detailed build plans for a small fee.  Look for both on Friday!
