  1. Projects Red Oak Filing Cabinet

    finally finished this small filing cabinet to match the desk i built for my dad. this was the first piece i built starting with drawers to fit hanging file folders, then building the cabinet. the stain really looks wonky in the photos but looks nice in person.
  2. Fibonacci gauge- an exercise in brass, steel, and wood

    the goal was to figure out how to case something with brass and 1/16 rod and river it together. A useable tool at the end would be a plus. That part didn't quite work out. Anyway. Started with .050 (I think) brass sheet, 5/16w X 5/8L rivets (they were a hair long, will try shorter next time...
  3. Oak Filing Cabinet w/ a Twist!

    This is one of my newer builds. It's an oak filing cabinet, but with a twist. The bottom drawer is set up for filing, but the top 'drawer' is actually a step stool. It's designed to help keep documents (obviously) but also to give a convenient home for a step stool so it's not always getting...

  5. Systainer made of wood and laminate flooring panels.

    Hello everyone. Here is my attempt to imitate Festool systainers. I try to build my own copy of wood and old flooring panels. I also make video of the process.
  6. Infill dovetail panel plane

    In this video I make a dovetailed infill plane from scratch using brass for the sides and mild steel for the sole. I used dovetailed construction which I cut using a hacksaw, chisel and files. If you're willing to do this yourself be ready for a lot of filling, cutting and sanding. For the...
  7. Library for trophy, Manu Ginobili

    Frame made by MDF, finishing semi matte black polyurethane
  8. Star Wars Wall Clock

    After cutting to length and gluing it up, I also passed it thru the planer. Just to get a nice flat panel. This was my first time cutting this much detail at the band saw. I didn't get very smooth cuts… If there is a bright center to woodworking, this is the process furthest from… And 2+...

    The Stock I was wading through my old woodworking bookmarks, and stumbled across this great guide to making a marking knife. It looked like a fairly easy project, and cheap! Looks like I can take that Japanese marking knife off my wish list. So here we go: The blade is taken from a jigsaw...

    Part 1 - Restoring a Brace to 'Like New' Condition In a recent tool gloat, dakremer showed off three lovely braces he'd purchased and said "Now I just have to learn how to restore this kind of thing". WayneC was first to congratulate him and then proceeded to drop me in it (only joking) by...

    Saw Handle Remodelling. AKA, The 'Brit' Method. Hi folks I recently acquired a cheap 14" Brass Backed Tenon Saw off eBay. A non descript saw marked Thos. Bloor, Leicester. The handle was comfortable enough, but I thought why not do a 'Brit job' on it? So out came the thick black permanent...

    And then there were two. I decided to dedicate my time this winter to restoring various saws I've acquired over the past year. I'll be restoring half-rip saws, panel saws, tenon saws, carcass saws and dovetail saws from a variety of makers, dating from the 1840s up to the 1960s. Now don't worry...

    Filing Cabinets in the Shop Didn't find any related content so thought I'd throw this out. I keep a lot of my tools and hardware (o.k. and old magazine issues, and reference books, and sandpaper, and…well you get it) in filing cabinets. I don't use the cheap ones, if they aren't commercial...

    Confessions of a Novice Handsaw Filer These are my observations about learning to sharpen handsaws, along with some reminiscing about years gone by. I will say at the outset that I consider myself a beginning handsaw filer. I still fall short of what I would call an accomplished filer, and I'm...

    Saw vise build I have been in desperate need of a better way to hold my saws for sharpening. My old setup( two sticks of wood ~26 inches long which I would clamp onto saw plate and my vise) was simply not cutting it (sawing pun intended). I thought about purchasing vintage, but everyone always...

    Splitter from a shelf bracket My new (to me) Unisaw didn't come with any safety equipment, and I've been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I'll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my...
  17. Hand Tools
    I was wondering if anyone had a good source for triangular files for sharpening hand saws. I have looked around and the price seams to swing all over the place. Any help would be appreciated. I really need help finding the smaller ones.
  18. Hand Tools
    To the hand saw users out in there Lumberjocks land, I have a question regarding my intended sharpening of three hand saws I own: In total, I have 6 hand saws, two of which are 26" panel saws & one a relatively new PAX Dovetail saw - Rip Cut, none of which are under consideration here in this...
  19. Woodworking Skill Share
    I'd like to start this forum topic for LJ's to share their sharpening methods and pose questions. I searched and found several forum topics but all geared towards something more specific, so I was hoping that this thread could serve as a general sharpening forum for questions, techniques...
