  1. Japanese tool box

    For our 5 year anniversary, I made my wife this Japanese tool box. The 5 year is the "wood" anniversary, and my wife lived in Japan for a time, so I thought it would be a nice tribute. The box is made from white pine and meranti. The meranti accent pieces were toned with aniline dye in shellac...
  2. The “Checker Madness” Awl

    This awl is part of my #100AwlGiveAway contest that I started a few weeks ago. I paired walnut, cherry and redheart with a 6D nail. Both the cherry and walnut were cut into 1/8th inch strips, glued together, sliced again and then glued front to back to create a checkerboard pattern. This is...
  3. The "Empty Spaces" Awl

    As part of my 100 Awl Contest, where I encourage others to make awls out of their best scrap woods, I came up with this awl, which I call the "Empty Spaces" awl. I used jatoba, maple and ebony (and a divine 6D nail) to create it. I used my table saw box joint jig to create the spaces in the...
  4. The "Golden Ratio" Awl

    And the 100 awl giveaway continues! I call this little rascal the "Golden Ratio" awl. As stated in other projects, my goal is to make 10 different types of awls and give 10 of each awl model away. What do I want in return? A picture of an awl that you made (it's really that easy)! I used...
  5. Bird Cage Awls

    I got tired of the cheap spring-loaded center-punches (from Harbor Freight), so I made a couple of Birdcage Awls to mark centers on my turning project. These are based on a video by Mike Peace. Birdcage awls are used by pushing down and twisting. The sharp ends act like reamer to cut away the...
  6. Unusual Birdcage Stand – Re-Purpose with a Purpose

    OK - it happened again - only this was about a year ago. My wife brought home this round birdcage. The cage was pretty interesting, but someone had built a table-top stand made out of pine and particle board - and they painted the stand dark green - plus the base was warped. When I pointed...
  7. Awl This Could Have Been Yours...

    ...If you had participated in the Summer 2016 Tool Swap. These were the marking tools that I made for the 2016 Marking and Layout tool swap. Both the awl and the Japanese marking knife and handle were inspired by articles from the now defunct Shopnotes magazine. Instead of buying a Japanese...
  8. Sweating for Bucks Through Woodworking
    My partner and I are edging toward starting an on-line site to market a variety of hand tools, including wooden planes. We've put together a dummy web site, we've built prototypes of jack planes and smoothing planes and are using them in the shop. And we've made scratch awls and birdcage awls...

    Bird Cage We inherited a parakeet with an unfortunate attitude from some people who I thought were friends. My wife, being the compassionate and free spirited person that she is, acquired a mate for the bird, thinking that this might help her disposition. She then commenced to letting the...
