My hero Mafe made a cool bunch of scraper shaves and a rack to hold them, I liked it so much I had to make one of my own. I really like the oriental look so I did the same thing (only different) I was in such a good moo0d that day I decided to build a rack for my chisels too! After that I just kept on going (over several days of course) I made a kerfmaker, a center finder, 2 setup gauges an awl from a long piece of keystock. A pencil shave which I have to tell you works wonderfully, I used it to make some walking sticks for my wife, grandson and I for when we go to Smithville Park. I made a t-square stop for my metric ruler, a small mallet from a bronze “T”. I made a grease pot from Mafe’s influence and a hand held belt sander for sanding on the lathe. nI also made a marking gauge with a wheel blade. I just love making tools, even more I love using the tools that I lovingly made, especially when they look and work so well. I will be posting some of the other projects I’ve been working on. Coming up are some scroll saw projects, stuff for the shop, and
a shave horse.

What a energy burst, I get all stressed if I have to live up to that.
Big smile here!
You are amazing.
It was really fun since I this night wrote on your post thank you for the inspiration for the scrapers, so now the circle is complete.
I have just bought new chisels, and I wanted to make a rack, so now I can use some inspiration from you.
I also welcome you to the GBOC grease box owners club, since I am the precident – welcome.
The pencilsharpener shave is so cool, I just still have not found a old sharpener, but it will come.
The hammer is so cool also, great idea.
The sanding bow I have to make one like that!
My God will it ever stop!
You made a fatastic bunch of tools there.
I’m in toolmaking heaven here,
Best thoughts,

Well, I guess some people just have WAY too much time on their hands.

One of my assignments at work is developing specialty tools, mostly of metal for one-of-a-kind uses. These are some pretty nice examples of tool making!

So you went all “TAZ” in the shop. Great work.
I particularly like the mallet made using a bronze T. Excellent idea. I’m stealing/copying it btw.
