  1. Hand Tools
    I purchased this old Buck Bros chisel a few years ago but I haven't really started using it regularly until just recently. I've noticed this verticle bend along the blade since receiving it but just kind of ignored it until now because I feel as though it's getting worse. So I decided to throw...
  2. Journal Paul Sellers Box, rounded side, Maple

    Trying to work on a Monday...not a good idea. Tapping the dry fit apart, so I could try to chop 2 stopped dados, that will house a central divider inside the box....tap, tap...Crack? Ouch...cussing has begun!:devilish: get out the clamps and a glue bottle...:mad: Seems some of the grooves...
  3. Good Luck Box

    We just returned from a long journey of short duration to and from the US where we dropped off my eldest at school. This box was a simple "good luck" present; something to hold pencils, pens, thumb drives, and the other detritus of modern life. Hopefully also something to remind him that his old...
  4. Rroubo Style Frame Saw

    The Roubo Style Frame saw is a tool I made int he past, but I needed to remake it as I broke my old one. This in one hand tool that can completely change the way you work. My last one was dropped and it blew out one of the mortices, and there were a few small tweaks I wanted to make on this...
  5. Shop Made Traditional Froe and Mallet (Riving axe)

    I made a froe (riving axe) and mallet for myself using wood from a tree that fell in our yard, and an old lawnmower blade. I used my angle grinder to shape the blade, which took a while because a lawnmower blade is not perfectly straight. After much sweat and grinding, I bolted it to a handle...
  6. Find at local flea market

    Just bought all of these from the flea market for a real reasonable price and thought i'd like to share them with you. The first plane is a Stanley 60 1/2, the second plane is a Stanley 9 1/4, and the third is a Starrett slide square. I cleaned all of them off a little bit with some RustFree...
  7. Chisel mallet

    Here's a mallet I made for mostly chiseling, to practice with some mortise and tenons. It is constructed out of maple scraps that I received (free) from a local sawmill in middle Tennessee, and some padauk cutoffs I bought on sale from Woodcraft. I tried to hone my hand tool skills and used my...
  8. Chisel Plane Made From Firewood

    A Chisel Plane Is a hand plane that can get right up to the edge where a traditional plane can not go. This one is made of white oak firewood, a scrap of Padauk, and an old Block plane iron. It can be made of most any hardwood you would like, these are just what I had on hand. I like doing...
  9. Karate Practice Dummy

    Yes, it's a karate practice dummy that I made for a friend at work. Definitely the most unique project I've done to date. Most of it was done with vintage hand tools using techniques I'd learned from nearly 20 years of watching Roy Underhill. The body started out as a white ash log from a tree...
  10. Multi-Angle Magnetic Hand Saw Guide

    Video processing Probably you will have seen several times cutting magnetic hand saw guides. But I dare to say that never one guide that allows you to make the cut in several angles. Here I'm presenting the multi-angle magnetic hand saw guide that I hope you like it and share your comments...
  11. Split Top Hybrid Roubo

    The Back Story About a year ago I got into the hand tool thing. For me it was more of a personal choice so I posted all my power tools on craigslist and sold everything! I didn't really have a grasp on the methods and techniques but with the help of sources like The Hand Tool School, online...
  12. Shaker Lap Desk

    This is Christian Becksvoort's lap desk that was in Fine Woodworking a year or two ago. I built it from a pine 2×4 and a 2×6. The breadboards are cherry and the pins and knob or walnut. Everything was done by hand with the exception of a drill pressed used to waste out the 3/16" x 16" mortise on...
  13. Bow saw, take 2

    This is another bow saw made with the kit from Gramercy Tools. The previous I had made into a swan neck, this time I wanted to follow their original design. I toyed with making it out of ebony because I had seen a beautiful one on the internet but opted not to because of cost. I had been...
  14. Koa Kerfmaker

    I was again challenged to try to make one of these neat little kerfmakers. I had looked at the video for Bridge City Tools and still cannot figure out how it is used with the second gapped area so I made one of my own design that is easily understood. It was just bit more tricky to fit...
  15. My first (and most likely not my last) real workbench.

    Cabinetmakers workbench, took me ~25 hours to build and cost under $200. I made this out of pine this year using only hand tools working on a "bench" that had more in common with a picnic table. The joinery is rough but strong. All the tenons are huge, glued and pinned. Not going anywhere for a...
  16. Japanese tool box

    For our 5 year anniversary, I made my wife this Japanese tool box. The 5 year is the "wood" anniversary, and my wife lived in Japan for a time, so I thought it would be a nice tribute. The box is made from white pine and meranti. The meranti accent pieces were toned with aniline dye in shellac...
  17. Table Bases

    Ya gotta understand that at this point I was a one man band. So, I've got this great regular customer that needs 50 turnings, in five days. He has a BIG shop and is willing to furnish material, glue up (COM & PREP=customers own material and preparation) AND they'll deliver the blanks AND pick...
  18. weld repaired Bailey #5 hand plane is now one of my favorite planes to use

    i am not a plane collector, i value them for their utility. most of my planes are "off name" less desirable, more affordable brands that get the job done. that being said, a local who resells his flea market finds on craigslist listed this Bailey. i thought wow, a Bailey #5 that i can really...
  19. Whacker

    Hi All, I've been using my chisels a little more lately and felt the various hammers weren't quite up to the task. I looked around the web and sketched up something like this. I told my wife "I needed a whacker", she said "don't look too far". One face is flat for chiseling and the other face...
  20. A Small Scribe

    Not a hugely complicated project this week. Just need a little scribe and I had some scrap materials so I thought, why not? The maple is leftover from a previous project, just wanted to put it to good use and make the most of it. The metal is some stainless rod stock I had rolling around...
