Small Projects #2: Small Oak Tool Tray

01-27-2020 12:16 AM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

The better half doesn’t always say anything but I know my leaving small hand tools on her coffee table irks her to no end. To preserve the peace I made this little (12” x 8” x 3-1/2”) oak tool caddy to toss my stuff in one place instead of being scattered to-hell-and-gone. I had a couple of 1/4” x 3-1/2” x 36” pieces of store bought (BORG) oak kicking around and this seemed like a good project. I cut the boards into six 11-3/4” pieces. The...

Caddy for tools, gardening, drawing, painting…boards, shape and fingers / taps I wanted to give my girlfriend something made with my hands for Christmas, as one of the gifts and since she is a Jacqueline of many trades, I decided a caddy / tote to bring her stuff, would be a thing that can bring joy in many situations. If she will use it for gardening, drawing stuff, painting gear, tools, garden tools, flowers or even perhaps at her job as a doctor, that must be up to her, for now I ...

Exercises in Artisanship #17: Old fashioned tool tote Part 5 THE FINALE!!

06-13-2012 10:33 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Ahhh yes…a lid for the top perhaps??.....this would be a total ad lib affair with little more than just letting the inner kid out to explore and experiment. Every now and then that is such a vital important exercise to have in our woodwork… free of worries…the crayons going out of the lines are no artistic sin, only stressfu...

Old and new Projects in a New Workshop #3: Mobile workstation for bench tools

08-23-2011 10:30 PM by garyjs | 1 comment »

I spent many years in Atlanta and in Israel as an ornamental woodworker/turner. I am in the process of converting our 2-car garage to a workshop. To save space, I used the idea of a workstation for small power tools and adapted it my needs. It is a cube 36” on a side and the same in height. I used two free casters and 2 locking casters to make it easy to move around, and as you can see I added a 4 plug outlet to the top for the bench tools and ran a 12’ exterior extension cord out one side...

Yes some of you will say: ‘come on Mad(s), we heard about this, and you will never get done with those dovetails’.And I have to admit: ‘I have been a chicken when it comes to dovetails’. The project:The project is a tool tote or tool box (many opinions on the name), a mix of some wonderful pine wood boards from an old closet, and a branch from the forest! Here the design I did, a simple but ‘hopefully’ long, slim and ele...
