New Shop in the Raw #9: Hand Tool Storage/Sharpening Station

03-06-2016 10:02 PM by builtinbkyn | 23 comments »

With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...

Dutch Tool Chest #5: The Larger Saws

04-15-2013 02:03 PM by Brandon | 19 comments »

My goal on the Dutch tool chest was to incorporate a space for two larger saws in the design. Like Chris Schwarz’s Dutch tool chests, I was determined to locate the saws on the lid, yet what I didn’t like about his design was that it required ample space on both sides of the tool chest to pull the saws out. I usually don’t have much space on either side. Here’s his design (and notice that you can’t pull that bottom saw out without running it into that workbench o...

Tool Chest #8: Tills and Tool Storage

08-15-2012 04:01 AM by CartersWhittling | 18 comments »

Hello. When I left off the chest was built and ready for the tool storage inside. After giving tool storage some thought I decided on having 3 sliding tills, rear moulding plane storage, front saw till, and tool rolls hanging on the front wall. Nothing really new, but I think my tool roll idea is. When trying to come up with ways to store drill bits and/or chisels on the front wall of my chest I came up with an idea involving canvas tool rolls. What I have is nails driving into t...

Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

Hi friends here we are again back in the shop and making and marking up the next to do’s for this saw till project I have been working on. This project is just what is needed for my fast growing collection of handsaws as you will see…..lol. This is a piece that has brought some more expansion in the learning of joinery, and getting a chance to exercise some new lessons learned. Pic 1-2: I needed to make a pair 1×2 mortice’s on each side for my rail to joint into t...

Good evening once more friends. Here is another installment of this saw till project build I have been having a fun time experimenting with. This till has been prepared for the task of holding my various saws for the last week or more….....but I wanted to take some additional time on this and try some creative ideas. I felt this was a nice opportunity to take aim at showcasing various skills and add them to this project to make it extra special as well as different from the rest. ...

Shop Remodel #30: Going live!

01-05-2016 05:17 AM by bearkatwood | 6 comments »

Hey all, hope you guys had a nice break. I finally finished the saw till and I am making some good progress on the tool cabinet. I was hoping to be starting on the workbench by now, but I should be able to get at it tomorrow. Better late than never.The carving of the till took a lot longer than I thought it would. I wanted the art nouveau whips to be really pronounced and it took a lot of work, but I am happy with the results. I finally got around to scanning in the...

Saw Till #1: Saw Till for My Pegboard Wall

08-18-2016 08:31 PM by HappyHowie | 5 comments »

With a reader’s tip for a Woodsmith magazine issue, I made myself a simple saw till. I mounted the till on my pegboard wall. This way my hand saws, including my Wood River dovetail and cross-cut hand saws, have easy access in my woodshop. I noticed I could also place here several of my combination squares.

Exercises in Artisanship #9: Creating a saw till with what ya got! PART 2

Hey friends, hope this weekend is being enjoyed by everyone. Moving on through this project with some learning and shavings I have another installment of where I am on the map with this saw till. I have watched and kept aware of this cheaper pines cupping and twisting as best as possible. I really wanted this thickness to remain on the boards so I sacrificed planing down in the various directions and trueing it down to smaller than desired width. I actually did at first give it a few sweep...
