Vlog 90: Planes, Pipe Clamp Tripod, Easel

Video Notes:

  • Last week’s video was restoring a hand plane. It turned out great. Both handles were made from hickory.
  • I soaked the metal in vinegar for 6 hours.
  • A lot of people have said that I should have assembled the plane before flattening it because it can twist. I didn’t know that. Luckily mine didn’t twist.
  • A few people asked why I didn’t sharpen the front of the chip breaker. It didn’t need it and I thought the video was going long as it is.
  • I’ve got an idea for a pipe clamp, concrete bucket tripod for the shop. Not sure if I’ll do a video on it as it’s just for me and I doubt many people will find interest on it.
  • This week I’ll be making an easel for my sisters wedding. Per her specifications.
  • Keep it real, homies.

  1. I’m liking that pipe clamp style camera mount.
    If it works out for you, I may have to copy that.
    Thanks Jay.

  2. I used the cement in a bucket and PVC schedule 40 pipe as a stand for an outdoor Christmas tree a few years ago. I would suggest less than a full bag of cement because a full bag should be much heavier than necessary. You can always add more later if needed. JMO.
