    I've done a lot of furniture repair so I thought I'd share some tips on how to shorten a chair or stool legs so there's no wobble. I hope you find this helpful. Scott
  2. shed/shop addition

    Last summer i built an 8×10 shed behind the house to get my mowers off my carport, and garden tools out of my basement that was made for midgets i think. This was built with hopes to be able to work out of it, though i doubted I would be able to do much. After the 48" cut rider and the push...
  3. Tage Fride style bowsaw

    Over the past year or so, I've become more enamored with hand tools and started moving away from being a pure power tool user. While I like having both options available in the shop, and will need to have my tablesaw pulled from my cold dead hands, I figured I needed a few good hand tools to...
  4. Yer' basic candle box...

    Just yer' basic candle box. Cherry wood with oil and wax finish. A mix of hand tools and power tools. Mostly handplane work to smooth the wood but some hand re-sawing for the thin stock for the top and bottom and the lid is beveled so it will slide home. Top and bottom are solid cherry and...
  5. New and Improved Shop Dust Pan

    Well, I had to improve my shop dust pan design and add a woodworking theme to it. What else but a hand saw? and a rip saw to boot. Check my previous project for more detail.
  6. Pencil Cup

    I made this little pencil cup as a going away gift for our Church Choir Director who is going back to graduate school to earn his doctorate in music. He has been a great director and a wonderful influence on my grandchildren in the three short years he has been with us. I hope it will find a...
  7. Hand-tooled saw bench

    I began this saw bench last weekend (June 24, 2012) in Port Townsend at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking "Handsaw Essentials" course taught by Jim Tolpin. I completed it in my shop after returning home. The bench was designed by Jim, constructed from alder and built using hand tools...
  8. Restored Hand Saw [New handle, hard wood]

    I had a old hand saw laying around my garage, it was part of larger saw that the tip broke and the handle started to rot, so I decided to try to make a new handle. The first attemps didnt go very well and I decided to try again with a harder wood. I ended up chosing hollow (azinho) basically it...
  9. more saws and a smoother

    As you can see from the pics I have been pretty busy lately. A few of these saws went to LJ's and a few are for me ;) From first to last the handles are sapele, bubinga, padauk, and sapele again. I've been working hard to develop my handle templates and improve my quality and speed of...
  10. Live Edge Sofa Arm Table

    Made this on a bit of sudden inspiration for what to do with a live edge cut off I got for free somewhere. Didn't know what wood it was, turned out to be aromatic cedar. Tiger Maple was actually from HD. I tried to keep as much of the live edge as possible, but the top shown is significantly...
  11. Help I Need Ideas

    I made this cane a year ago after knee surgery. It has worked well. The handle is a Disston, copied from a 100 year old rip hand saw I have. I've always liked its grip hence why I copied it. My problem is I couldn't come up with ideas to finish it out. Do I incise cuts like the Disston handle...
  12. Gang Saw - Frame Saw

    I've had the desire to build a Roubo style frame saw for a while now. It is not that I want to get into sawing veneer. It just seems to be a more stable method than my previous efforts Then I got to overthinking it, and thought, "what about a gang saw?" A Roubo style frame with 2 blades...
  13. LITTLE HANDSAW FOR WHEN NOTHING ELSE WORKS

    A little hand saw that uses a section of a coping saw blade mounted in the handle with a set screw that is threaded into the handle .The teeth on the blade are oriented so the saw cuts on the pull stroke which keeps the little blade from bending too easily . The handle is made from jatoba and...
  14. New batch of handsaws

    I have been quite busy lately making saws among other things. Two of these saws are going to BigRedKnothead and one of them went to JordanP The panel saw is a 24 inch 8 ppi crosscut saw with a padauk handle modeled after a Disston No. 7. The plate is .032in 1095 spring steel. After that is the...
  15. Handsaw Rack

    My handsaws where scattered all over the garage, it was a bummer every time I needed to cut something, so why not make a handsaw rack? Its basicaly three pieces joined together, the joinery wasnt my best but I sanded all down at the end. I opened two holes at my new workbench, which was made...
  16. Crown Gent Saw rehab

    I had a crown gent saw that I purchased a while back hoping to do some hand work, while not breaking the budget. I never used the saw after the first time being that I found the handle very uncomfortable, and the saw to not cut very well. After digging around and drooling over some very fine...
  17. Dovetail Shelves

    I decided to make some shelves to hold some of my tools. They needed to be very sturdy, so I made them out of 7/8 inch poplar and used hand cut dovetails for the joints. I left the tails long for effect. They hold a lot of weight and have been a great way to organize my shop a bit. Thanks for...
  18. Stationary Organizer

    I am posting this to show what can be made with minimal tools. I made this Stationary organizer about 20 years ago. The tools used would be limited to a drill, jigsaw and hand saw plus a hand sander. Nothing flash but it serves a purpose. .
  19. Chisel till

    In the ongoing quest to get some of my bench top back for actual woodworking, next up was a chisel till. His started as a cheap ($7 from the bargain bin) scrap of birch, 3/4×6 x 24, which I resawed, ripped, and crosscut so I had 3/8×3 pieces. The finished till is roughly 15×18, so I have some...
