Full Shop Tour - My Unplugged Workshop by Lt_Skitz in woodworking

Well, a router plane isn't a direct correlation to a powered router. A powered router can do a great many things, and to adequately replicate that via unplugged means, you need a great number of planes. A rabbet plane like a Stanley 78, a router plane like a 71, any number of moulding planes to make the profiles you want, scratch stock for non-straight edges that need a profile, etc.

For what I do, I don't need a router. But many do.

Realistically, I don't see a need for more than one router plane. And if you need more, you either collect, or know you need more and have a specific reason why.

As I remember now that you say that, /u/joelav told me when I got them to stab them into wood a bunch before use. Sometimes that'll make them chip if they're iffy on the edge, then grind and it's fine. Mine didn't, but his did.

Honestly, I've been really happy with them. No complaints. But, perhaps if I had a high-end chisel I'd see some differences ha. But they go a while fairly well by my standards.

Haha thanks! The poor website...gets the short straw on my available time.

Thanks. Definitely hoping to build a small outbuilding in a year or so to move most everything there. Definitely feeling a lack of space, and I'd like a 8-10ft long bench instead of the 6ft.

Thanks!

They're not terrible to work at all, but to work the irons on more complicated profiles, it can require some specialized tools. I've got a whole write up about it here.

Hello and welcome to my small shop tour. Is it a small shop or a small tour? Yes.

Just expanding a bit from the workbench-only pic I shared a few days ago.

Enjoy the pics!

Aprons help with wracking, if you don't have other horizontal supports. Or if you do and they're lower.

I can't speak to the Sellers bench as I've never built one, and never would. I imagine he's probably got that info online somewhere.

Regarding the apron, here's one example of using the dogs when edge joining two long boards.

And here's an example using a holdfast in conjunction with the vise to hold some plywood from wobbling too much.

It also goes great with holding longer pieces that I have bumped up against the crochet.

6'. I regularly work on 6'+ long stuff so they hang off the end...

The only "critical" part is having some amount of horizonal alignment so boards on their edge will be level. The "N" pattern is fairly classic, I just divided the distance between the legs, and then for the diagonals.

The legs get alternating rows every 3 in or so.

Love the style. I added the leg vise on the "wrong" side (I'm right-handed, it "should" be on the other side) and have been extremely pleased.

The only thing I wish for is another holdfast from time to time, and that it was longer. Don't have the space for that.

The most recent pic I have. There's some lumber storage off to the right, and a little cabinet with random tools/finishes in it, but the core of my shop is in this picture.

Pampers box is 1/2 that's full of moulding planes.

From my R5

I gave Brandenburg Neumark when the event fires, and since then they've been my ally.
