I have spent the last few weeks on some shop projects. Here are a few of the projects:
1. Another tool organizer to go along with my dovetail tool one. The two of them fill up the top drawer of my work bench and will keep me well organized.
2. Glue caddie. This was made from a scrap piece of wood that I had experimented with the dyed epoxy and almost went in the trash. It now makes a convenient place for my glue and hangs on my assembly table, but can also be lifted off and moved when needed.
3. Saw blade caddie. This will allow me to keep my blades right near my saw and I will be more likely to switch to the proper blade.
4. A mallet made out of leadwood and maple. I figured this was a perfect use a small chunk of leadwood.
