  1. Staked shop stool

    I needed a new stool for my shop. The one I mostly use is 18" high, which is too low for my new titanium knees (they'll get better), so I decided to make a new, taller stool. I took a piece of 3 inch wide 4/4 maple that was just under six feet long, ripped it in half, then crosscut it in half...
  2. What shopping center missed out on this bench?

    I decided to build this 5' Better Furniture bench for my inventory. I used left over sheet metal, painted black and believe it or not recycled palette wood for the top. It is a mixture of 1" thick ash and oak. This is now a one of a kind FSC certified bench for sale exclusively @...
  3. For John

    I have a LOT of friends from Texas. It's interesting they'd even be willing to be associated with a Yankee such as myself. Anyway, a guy I work with asked my for a checker board in the shape of Texas a while back and this is how it turned out. The paduak was a perfect color for Texas I thought...
  4. Segmented & pierced

    I wanted to make a pierced piece for awhile and when I received a new Dremmel for a gift I had to try. This is a 10 stave maple bowl, I couldn't get control of the Dremmel so I laid the bowl on it's side and used my scroll saw. I have heard others are able to pierce with a Dremmel but I couldn't...
  5. Uncle Perry's Crosscut Saw Display

    My namesake, Uncle Perry, was a blacksmith, farrier, and general farm equipment repairman for the small town he lived in in Northeast Texas from the 20's until the early 60's. His shop was in the middle of town, right next to the general store. My father inherited some of his tools, and I...

    Not what you think. This video is for big saws. I didn't see a Traditional Tools forum so I'll put it here for anyone who may be interested. Displays of my work are apparent on wilderness trails in Virginia…...... http://www.youtube.com/user/PATCsawyer#p/a/u/0/FrYsFlx3OSY
  7. Hand Tools
    I picked up a nondescript Warrented Superior 8 ppi crosscut saw while rust hunting today. If nothing else, it is good practice for sharpening. The points are getting plenty "sticky" sharp, the way a sharp saw feels, you know what I mean. Swapping out my worn file for a fresh one was a big...
  8. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I recently acquired this wonderful piece of English heritage and thought I'd share it with you. This is a vintage 8 PPI (7 TPI) 26" crosscut hand saw made by Spear & Jackson in Sheffield, England over 100 years ago when Spear & Jackson were at the forefront of saw manufacture. The saw plate...

    A very Robert Sorby birthday Everyone's going to hate me for this, but I just fell - not literally - into a lot of new Robert Sorby turning tools. The 18th (3 days ago) was my 32 birthday (for you programmers, that's 100000 in binary - I no longer fit in 5 bits!). Mom sent me a box of Rockler...

    Old Rusty 8PPI crosscut saw Picked this one up at a yard sale for $2 this past summer. I thought for $2 it would be good for getting use to using and sharpen hand tools again, and get away from all the noise of my power tools. I thought if I mess it up it is only $2. For me it is just not fun...

This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn't turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90%...

    Hey guys, how do you tell the difference between a rip saw and a crosscut saw? I was in Lowes looking at saws and none of the say which one they are.
  15. Hand Tools
    Hey, has anyone yet tried the new Veritas Rip & Crosscut Tenon Saws yet? They come at a very attractive price for $175 for the pair until the 26 of December. Considering picking them up but wanted to hear some reviews first. I have no doubt they are fine, it is Veritas after all, however all...
