  1. Dovetail Saw and Bit Driver for the Winter 2017 Tool Swap

    This is the swap tool set I made for ki7hy for the Fall/Winter 2016 Lumberjock's surprise swap. It is a 9-inch dovetail saw with about 2-inch depth of cut. The saw plate is .020-inch spring steel, 15 points per inch, filed rip cut. There is about a 1/8-inch to 3/16-inch taper to the plate. The...
  2. Another Crown Gents Saw Re-Handle.....

    This has been on the back burner for a while. Last spring I replaced the gents handle on an 8" Crown gents saw http://lumberjocks.com/projects/83969 and very soon after I wanted to do the same for a 10" saw. The 8" works great and is still a keeper but I wanted a slightly larger stroke when...
  3. 10" dovetail in Walnut

    Just got done making another saw This one is going to another youtuber named Dema. If you don't know of him, he makes amazing brass mallets and leg vise hardware. See his links below. He wanted a thin dovetail saw that had a more traditional look to it. I like to play around with style...
  4. Pistol Grip Gent Saw

    I had an idea a few years back about the gent saw. And that was that I couldn't stand them, they are so hard to grab the same way every time so you end up concentrating on the cut more than you should. There had to be a better way, some sawmakers give a slight bend to the handle or facets to use...
  5. Magnetic Beer Tote

    Not the most original thing in the world but here's my take on a beer tote… Had some lightly figured maple and a bunch of aromatic cedar in the shop, so I figured I'd give one of these a try. Didn't have plans so I marked things out by using beers from the fridge. Sides are maple, bottom and...
  6. Live Edge Sofa Table

    I built this over the weekends in February and March 2017, the project was a giant leap of faith so many firsts… This was a handtool build outside using a thickness planer to clean the mill marks from the boards used on the base. The design got its inspiration from chapter 9 of Paul Sellers...
  7. Epic Wooden PC Case - WoodWorkLIFE

    Hey Guys, This was a very special project combining two of my biggest passions, woodworking and technology. I made PC case or a modded PC case whatever you want to call it, completely out of wood. For this project I used two contrasting woods that work wonderfully together, Sycamore and...
  8. Dovetail Saw Rehab - All Finished

    Some of you have been following my blog about my attempt to make a new handle for an old dovetail saw. Well I finally finished it tonight. I am pretty proud of how this turned out. The two woods are honduran rosewood and beech. The last picture is the before photo of the original mahogany...
  9. Gent saw conversion

    I've seen a few of these here and have needed a dovetail saw. A GC from amazon for Christmas covered the gent saw and I cut then handle from a piece of walnut (fun fact: this was an off cut from the very first piece of lumber I ever bought). The pattern is from Two Guys in a Garage and is a...
  10. Mantle Clock

    I made a mantle clock out of quartersawn white oak with African mahogany trim with clear rain drop glass, finished with ting oil.
  11. 8” dovetail saw in cocobolo

    The rosewood for this saw and the following saws was provided by a buddy. I made this as a show of appreciation for favors traded back and forth and whatnot. He also lasered all the logos on a 1/2 dozen or so plates for me. I should probably make him another just for that :) Alright, so. Brass...
  12. 9” dovetail saw in cocobolo

    I made this in trade to another LJ for some very good machinist goodies. All brass and hardware is from Blackburn Tools. Great stuff. Plate is .015 and sits 1-1/2" under spine. Filed 18 ppi rip. Handle is cocobolo with renaissance wax buffed. Thanks for looking
  13. 2nd 9” dovetail saw in cocobolo

  14. Small Carved Mahogany Box

    It was a wonderful day in the shop. No electric motors spinning high speed steel at who knows how many revolutions per minute, and that meant no ear plugs, no dust collector running, and no dust mask. It was me, some hand tools, a sizable cut off of mahogany, a stocked MP3 player, and an idle...
  15. dovetail saw

    Made a dovetail saw from some Blackburn supplies. Started with a template I liked and transferred it to a piece of Zircote that I resawed to 7/8" Coped down to the line I could lie and say I used nothing but rasps but, in honesty, I used a die grinder with rasp bits mostly. And...
  16. 9" Dovetail Saw for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap

    This was my entry for the 2014 LumberJock Saw Swap (ErikF had inspired me to build a saw even before the saw swap began. You should check out his blog tutorial on the tools for making your own saw from scratch.) I quickly discovered that building a handsaw almost entirely from scratch was...
  17. Dovetail Saw from Gent Saw and firewood

    I picked up an old Disston 68 saw at a garage sale a couple weeks ago for $5. It is considered a dovetail saw but has a gent style handle. There is currently a firewood challenge on Reddit r/woodworking, so I thought I would try modifying the saw to have a pistol grip handle. I found some...
  18. Cane hanger

    My sweetie's dad has a cane he doesn't use much. He should, but it's a pain, and he tends to forget it places. So she thought that maybe she'd get him a cane hanger for Christmas, but all the ones on Amazon were plastic. Since he used to make furniture in this wood shop and gave me his old...
  19. Rope Bed 1/4 scale

    This a 1/4 scale rope bed model. I was asked by the John Alden House Museum in Duxbury Mass. to create a model rope bed so that they could have a hands on piece that children could play with see how a rope bed works. I made a prototype out of pine and then this final version made from maple...
  20. Spirograph box

    This was a gift box for the 60th birthday of a friend. My wife purchased a vase to put inside the gift box. I made the box from walnut. I dovetailed the sides and then added little feet that stick out. Those feet were probably the most complicated parts of the project. The lid was inspired by a...
