Tool tote - chisel rack and finishing

04-17-2020 01:25 AM by shawnSK | 9 comments »

Finishing up took quite a while. I made a chisel rack from a length of thin poplar. And I made spacers from the same thin poplar. But I doubled my work since the spacer wood was not thick enough to accommodate larger tools. I basically cut the wood twice and laminated them to make each spacer, then glued them to the main piece. Lots of cutting and gluing and double checking. I only glued one spacer in the wrong spot, and caught my mistake before the glue had time to set. I made one...

Tool tote - success!

03-24-2020 06:09 PM by shawnSK | 5 comments »

The tool tote so far – the joints are cut, the sides are set and one end has been shaped. .I score a handle opening with a marking knife, (I’m really beginning to love this thing) and chisel the opening out with a mallet. The registration is good, the cut is square. I may be getting the hang of this after all. .I fit the handle into the slot and it fits snugly. It even gets kind of stuck. Wonderful!...I trace my finished end onto the other and this time I drill a hole in each corner of ...

Tool tote - General Butchery

03-07-2020 03:29 PM by shawnSK | 6 comments »

When I bought the jig saw to make the dinosaur puzzle Christmas gift, I was thinking it will probably be my only power tool. (That and a used cordless drill.) Relatively quiet, good for curves, and can cut boards to size in a pinch. I chose a tool tote for my first actual woodworking project. I wanted to use joints on this project, and I wanted to use the jig saws strengths. Again, sort of a test of what one can do with just a jig saw. The tote seemed like a good project – its en...

Caddy for tools, gardening, drawing, painting…fixing mistakes, improvising and getting it done Here we are at part two of the caddy build, a Christmas gift for my girlfriend, as I thought she should have something, made with my hands. Last blog ended here, where the fingers were cut and we have a frame. Took these pictures after the whiskey was enjoyed and I then left the shop for the day. But let’s go back to where we finished.Let’s talk about the mistakes we make and how t...

Caddy for tools, gardening, drawing, painting... #1: Boards, shape and fingers

01-06-2020 01:41 AM by mafe | 12 comments »

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 ...

Based on a tool tote from Shopnotes #120, mine is used to transport various hand tools to local workshops that I attend. In this video I walk-through the contents as I prepare for a workshop, and show some of the features that I like about this tote.

Japanese tools #16: Japanese tool tray - for the toolbox. (blog)

06-30-2012 09:25 PM by mafe | 14 comments »

Japanese tool trayfor the new toolbox To complete the setup for working with Japanese tools I wanted a little tool tray that I could use to hold and carry tools while working, especially to keep the chisels off the ground. I decided it should be made so it could be stored and transported in the toolbox when not in use, that it should be made with the same joinery as the drawer and again no hardware.For the beauty and the joy of the eye I wanted a handle made of a branch like I have on m...

Well….... a cleaning we still go here at the old time woodshop. The oil and wire wheel spin on and try their best to revive some oldies but goodies.

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

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

Well I guess through learning and creating, sawing and shaving there were a few more hours to conjureup some additional ideas with my chisel box. 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…..be free of worries…the crayons going out of the lines are no artistic sin, only stressfu...
