Some New Friends from the Lie-Nielsen Event

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of hosting a Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event in our office (check out the Lie-Nielsen site to see if there’s an event coming soon near you), for which around 250 people showed up to test out the company’s tools, get personal hand-tool instruction, watch demos in our shop, pick...

SAPFM Demos at Lie-Nielsen Show, April 5-6 2013

The crates for the April 5-6 Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event arrived yesterday (thank you, kind neighbor, for your forklift help); it’s tempting to open them and dig into the bronze, wood and steel goodness inside. The free event is next Friday (10 a.m.-6 p.m.) and Saturday (10 a.m.-5 p.m.) in our office and shop,...

Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event – April 5-6 at PWM

On Friday April 5th and Saturday April 6th, we’ll be throwing the Popular Woodworking doors wide open (rolling them up, actually) for a Lie-Nielsen Hand Tool Event (I predict you’ll be looking a little peaky on April 5th, and will need to skip work).

Tool Test: Lie-Nielsen Violin Maker’s Plane

In the August 2012 issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine (which mails to subscribers on June 13), you’ll find a review of the Lie-Nielsen Toolworks Violin Maker’s Plane (also called the 101), which is based loosely on the Stanley 101. I filmed the short video below to show how the plane comes apart, goes back...

Tool Test: Lie-Nielsen No. 101 Block Plane

By Megan Fitzpatrick Page 16 This wee bronze plane from Warren, Maine, is a reproduction (of sorts) of the Stanley No. 101 plane – a small block plane originally designed for household use and light work (and sold in toy tool chests, according to Patrick Leach’s “Blood and Gore” web site). But unlike its inspiration, this new...

Tool Test: Lie-Nielsen Closed-throat Routers

This joinery-tweaking plane belongs in every woodworker’s tool kit. by Christopher Schwarz Page 14 Even when I am in full-blown power, power, power mode in the workshop, there are two handplanes I turn to all the time: a block plane and a router plane. Most woodworkers own a block plane, but only a fraction...
