  1. Hand Tool Humidor

    This is going to be a Christmas gift for my Dad, to sit on his live edge Bubinga bar top (I'm not jealous, I swear). Turned out OK, but will withold final judgment until I know how well it holds humidity. Walnut with curly maple inlay on top (can't see the curl for the light, alas) with a...
  2. Cross for RCIA

    Made this cross for the RCIA group at my church. Walnut scroll pieces over a cherry backing and base. Mostly cut on the scrollsaw, although for the base I chose to take the opportunity to play with the crosscut and miter sleds on the tablesaw. Sprayed with gloss water based poly. The other side...
  3. New Handles For Vintage Stanley Chisels

    I recently purchased the small Rikon Variable Speed lathe from Woodcraft that was on sale. Since then I have been trying to figure out how to use it. While I am not there yet, I will say it is fun. I like the ability to do a "project" in basically in one shot. I can admit that I have a hand...

One of the things I appreciated about them was that they ground the sides very small so that they can get into corners without bruising the wood, much like (although...

    (Finally) Upgrading from a Shop-Vac So for the longest time I've heard how much a Shop-vac doesnt quite cut it when it comes to larger machines, and how much quieter "real" DC machines are compared to a shop-vac, but being a weekend warrior, my budget is limited, and space was a big issue for...
  8. Marketplace Classifieds
    Cleaning out some unused tools from the shop and wanted to offer them up to other LJ's before putting on ebay. Four good quality vintage chisels, two Stanley 750's, a Stanley 720 and a Mawhood firmer from England. Update: All three Stanleys are sold. The first Stanley 750 is a 3/8in. The...
