  1. Record Cabinets

    A local businessman wanted some record cabinets made. They are mostly 3/4 import birch plywood. The fronts are mostly locally harvested stuff - poplar, butternut, cypress, and some rough weather oak. And the trim is walnut. Probably too much information here.. "...
  2. Turning Saw

    Hand made Turning saw based on the Gramercy tools kit which I've had for absolutely ages and finally decided to make. The kit I bought comprised of the handles, pins and three blades. The wood used is quarter-sawn European beech. I believe Gramercy make the handles from American hickory...
  3. Bow Saw

    I recently asked a forum question about cutting a circle. From that I basically came up with two ways to cut a large circle: Cut the square into an octogon, then a polygon, and keep cutting until you smooth it out with a spokeshave or plane. Use a bow saw to cut the circle then smooth out...
  4. Gramercy bow saw build

    This was a fun project. Built from scarp sapele after another project, Gramercy's layout sheets were spot on and it was easy to template the pieces. Lots of hand shaping. I turned the handle on the lathe and finished with danish oil and paste wax. I bought their kit and blades. It all came...
  5. Roubo Workbench

    I started a blog about this build but discovered I enjoy the woodworking process more than the blogging process. Here's the rundown. I followed Chris Schwarz's plans… of course. Dimensions: 34" tall, 22.5" wide, 76" long Top: construction 2×4's and some reclaimed redwood 2×6's from a deck that...

  7. 10 lbs in a 5 lbs box - my finished shop

    I didnt have the ideal space to start … and I wanted a wide selection of tools and equipment …. I think it turned out OK. The shop started as an open air car port that I walled in using shiplap sideing. I added a 170 sq ft side room with oak floors and cabinets finished with redwood beams and...
  8. Dovetail Saw from a Gents Saw

    After seeing some amazing transformations of inexpensive gents saws to high quality western dovetail saws here on lumberjocks, I decided to give it a try. After settling on the Gramercy dovetail saw design, I bought an inexpensive Crown 10" Gents saw with 16 PPI and a steel back, two brass...
  9. Osage Orange and Curly Hard Maple Gramercy Bow Saw

    The Materials: This is constructed from a Gramercy Bow Saw kit which provides detailed plans, two brass pins and three blades. After much deliberation over materials, the bow saw posts and stretcher were made out of a chunk of 8/4 tight grained quartersawn Osage Orange and the two handles and...
  10. Bow Saw

    Hi! Let me share with you my latest build: bow saw. The blade is 12" long, overall design and proportions borrowed from Gramercy bow saw free plans. The wood is beech, and the finish is couple of coats of BLO. Handles were made of some fruit tree wood, plum probably. The brass parts were...
  11. Hand Tools
    Picked up a little gift for myself last week when L.V. had there Free Delivery! Interested in seeing the difference between this saw and my Veritas D.T. Having a hard time deciding what wood to try it out on?
  12. Joinery
    Hey there all you woodbutchers! Long time listener, firsttime caller. I finally decided to register and be more than a lurker. I have a "big" commission, my first really and I'm stuck. And the more I fiddle with the plan, the more confused and stuck I get. It seems like it should be so much...
  13. Marketplace Classifieds
    I'm taking courses in furniture making, cabinetmaking and architectural millwork and I need at least two hand saws. One needs to be a rip dovetail saw and the other needs to be a crosscut carcass or sash saw. I am okay with a rip carcass saw as well as long as the ppi is at least 15. It doesn't...

    I'm selling my Gramercy Tools 9" Dovetail Saw. It's a great saw. I've had it for about a month and half now but I really cannot afford it thought. Selling for around $25 bucks less than I paid for it from Tools For Working Wood. In new condition. $145.00 Shipped (They go for $159.00 + $10.67...

    To Build a Bow Saw Before I can chronicle more of Moby Plank, which I'm itching to do, I need to get the mesquite legs and stretchers made. In order for me to complete the legs, which will be carved out of 5×5x 36 blocks of mesquite, I need a band saw much bigger than the little hobbiest one I...

    The Build I recently purchased the Gramercy Carcass saw kit to add a nice crosscut saw to my till and if Chris Schwarz and Roy Underhill prefer it I thought I'd give it a try, but at $200 it's a bit pricey. The kit however is a little more than half that and all that's left to do is attach the...

    Getting Started Well, my buddy Bill (builtinbkyn) recently made a couple of turning saws and I knew I had to have one. So when my Mom asked me what I wanted for my birthday earlier this month, I told her I'd like one of the Gramercy bow saw kits from Tools for Working Wood. For $29 you get...

  19. Off Topic Coffee Lounge
    I've been checking Tools For Working Wood over the last several months, looking for the famous holdfasts I've heard so much about. Unfortunately, the holdfasts seem to be on permanent out-of-stock status. Looking at other tools, it seems they are all out of stock too. Is Gramercy still a going...
  20. Hand Tools
    I'm cleaning up the shop getting ready for the Winter and decided to sell a few hand tools I no longer use. I thought I would see if any of my fellow LumberJocks wanted them at a discount before I post them on eBay. I'm only shipping to the United States using USPS. If you want one of them, just...
