  1. Veritas small plow plane blade and plane storage

    So when I was considering building a toolbox, I needed a way of storing the blades for my small plow plane from Veritas. I decided to make a blade and plow holding piece that could be slid into a box. This is what I came up with. It is three panels, slots cut in the two end pieces and then...
  2. Walnut dovetailed box...ouch

    I thought I was actually going to make it through a project without drawin blood, but had glue seize on assembly and hammered the heck out of my thumb!! After a couple projects that took a bit longer, wanted a weekend project just for some fun. Made this last weekend and just got a finish on...
  3. Recycled Curtain Rod Tripod Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I found some great things at the county landfill, and among them was a mountain-I mean a literal mountain, of fabulous virgin wood. It was from a pallett off one of the freighters. Also in my inventory collection, were several curtain rods (from the 1960's) per my wife's mother, who had them up...
  4. Cherry trestle table / desk

    Here is a cherry desk I just completed. Like all the projects I make, it was from rough lumber , start to finish with hand tools. It was enjoyable to make and a relatively simple project. This was my first time making breadboard ends. I put a cherry dowel through the tenons on the breadboard...
  5. Wooden Shop Squares

    Squares of all kinds are an important shop tool. but sometimes just the exercise of building your own tool helps you better understand that tool on a deeper level. A couple months ago Chris Schwarz over at Pop Wood Magazine got my attention when he started blogging about a square Patrick Leach...
  6. Spoons for the new year!

    Hey gang, with the new year upon us I had some spoons awaiting finishing as well as a brand new piece made just yesterday on New Years. All of this was Sandy storm wood, much of it hauled from local curb sides and even my local park. Glad to see it be able to bring something good from a storm...
  7. Rhumba Box

    This is based on a marumba box, rumba box, mbira, marimbula, bass kalimba that I saw on holiday years ago. It's a substitute for a standup bass. I'm told that in the Caribbean, they originally made the "twangers" out of shipping straps or old victrola springs. I chose to to try poplar sticks...
  8. Step Stool

    This is my first completely "Hand Tool Only" project, its a step stool I made for my wife for Christmas. Its dovetailed maple with bloodwood accents. If you were wondering blood sucks to work with, its very dense and brittle. If you inspect the stool closely you'll find gaps and other...
  9. Another Mixed Hardwood End Grain Board

    Hot off the press today with another 3 near complete (pics to follow). Really pleased with this one as the end grain showed some gorgeous colouring and detail. Oak, Ash, Padauk, Sapele, Maple and Beech. Rounded finger holds added using a 1/4" bull nosed router bit. Dimensions - 450mm x 320mm x...
  10. Red Oak Desk

    I have been reading and enjoying this websites community long before I finally created an account. Since creating one nothing has really came to mind on what to post about so figured I'd start with a desk I made not long ago. A customer was looking for a large desk to put in the office room of...
  11. Spalted elm shop stool

    Back in February, I bought a large slab of spalted elm I'm using to build a new workbench. A piece from the end of the slab was big enough for a stool, so I decided to build a tall and sturdy shop stool for myself. I cut two corners off a rectangular piece, then shaped the legs from red oak...
  12. Rustic Log Bench

    Okay, everybody, this one is posted at Rivergirl's request. This is a rustic bench that I made a couple of months ago. It is simply a section of white oak log with four legs from the same trunk section. The top was made by taking a log half and splitting off a section to yield a flat top...
  13. Now *this* is a mallet

    Or a commander or a beetle Direct from the woods to a working tool. The head is NZ Red Beech, heavy, hard and weather resistant. The handle is NZ Silver Beech, which is not so weather resistant but very shock resistant and perfect for handles. The tree was downed by mother nature. The head of...
  14. Benchcrafted Envy Moxon for Cheapskates

    I have a cheapskate's confession to make. I like nice stuff and the BenchCrafted hardware epitomizes nice stuff. So I took a hard look at their Moxon hardware. Way out of my budget, but awesome and fast acting. I would gladly own it if I could. My hand joinery is where I need work and practice...
  15. spalted local and recycled woods box + sumac bandsaw box

    This is a box I had started a few months ago, originally to make a music box for my sweetheart. But having found a better alternative in a crafts shop, I had left this one on the workbench for future use. I brought it back home this time, and covered it with a locally found spalted wood (will...
  16. Elm, walnut & sassafras butter dish

    While making my shop stool I cut off a couple corners. Those pieces had some real nice patterns to the spalting and grain, and I decided that one of them would make a nice butter dish. I started by hollowing it out with a router plane. Then smoothed things out a little. I had some tear-out due...
  17. 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...
  18. Fixed fence kerfing plane

    Back when I got my Roubo Frame saw kit from Bad Axe Toolworks, I also got the kerfing plane kit. I finally got around to finishing that this morning, and have put it to use. With the kit you get a saw plate and a cherry board. Step one is cutting a hand-hold in the board. A couple different...
