  1. Bench Top Jointer

    Bench top Jig to hold my electric hand plane as a small jointer. Based on the YouTube tutorial by Get Hands Dirty. It works very well :)
  2. Chisel Handles

    I turned these Chisel Handles to create a uniform look and to replace my old plastic and broken wood handled Chisels. Most of these belonged to my Dad. I cleaned up the steel, sharpened and I use them almost daily. The handles are made from Ash from the wood burning pile :)
  3. Hand Plane Thicknessing Jig with Micro Adjustment

    This is a jig I have designed for creating precise and repeatable thicknesses when hand planing small stock. It has undergone many design changes to optimise its function and ease of use. It uses a micro adjustment mechanism for setting the height. I have a video on Youtube to demonstrate it...
  4. Dovetailed Picture Box

    I had an alder board with a big knot in it I've been saving to use for something like a box lid. So this box was designed around from that one piece. The rest of it I kept fairly simple thinking it'd be a good balance to the figured grain around the knot. I sized the box just big enough to...
  5. Simple Router Plane

    I built this very basic but functional Poor Man's Cordless Router from scrap Poplar and Oak and used a sharpened Allen Key for a blade :) I laminated two pieces of Poplar together to provide the thickness I needed. The blade holder is a simple knob with 6mm threaded rod epoxy'd in. I drilled a...
  6. Maple Sink Base

    Here's a maple sink base I made based on homeowner sketches (yikes!). All material was rough cut to begin so all the milling too me quite a while. He wanted 4 inch thick legs so i ended up using 10/4 and gluiong up two pieces after carefully jointing them. My years in a handmade furinture...
  7. Plane Till

    I finally did a little bit of work to my plane till. It used to house my water sharpening system, but now I have too many hand planes, so I rearranged it a bit. It's no Studley tool chest, but it's a start. At least my #8 has a home now.
  8. Ebony Hand

    Not that anyone ever has 'scrap' ebony. But I had some ebony and wanted to do something fun with it. Lifesized and fully articulated hand. As always, carved with an xacto knife and sanded smooth.
  9. Marking Gauge

    I made this Marking Gauge to submit in The Hand Tool Build off 2017 held by James Wright of 'Wood by Wright' It is made from Oak and Poplar and uses an Allen Key as the marker :) Here is a link to the Instructable and how I make them https://www.instructables.com/id/Marking-Gauge-for-Woodworking
  10. Jointer Plane Fence.

    Jeff asked if any of us had used a fence on a jointer plane. I built one a couple years ago for my Craftsman(Sargent) #7. it is made of Poplar and has three Rare Earth Magnets to hold it onto the plane. I don't remember exactly how I went about it but I think I used the rabbit ledge on the...
  11. Renovated old wooden German hand plane

    I bought this old wooden plane at a market for 3 Euros, but I had stored it away and never looked at it until today. I gave the body a light cleaning and oiling, flattened the sole and sharpened the blade. It has been knocked about a lot through its life and I decided to leave it as original as...
  12. 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...
  13. Razee-Dazzle Fore Plane

    I decided to build a real plane. This one took some what more than three hours. This 17 inch Razee style fore plane is made of oak and Jarrah. The oak creates an infill surrounded by Jarrah sides, sole and tote. I used Kernov's style wedge holder and looked to Phil Edwards to see how this thing...
  14. Trundle Bed

    So we decided to get our daughter her first bed. hurray!! We thought a trundle bed would be the best solution, as it includes an extra mattress that we can use for guests/friends that sleep over. we looked around for beds that we liked, and the price ranges were at the $500-$600. I figured I...
  15. 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...
  16. Baby Cradle

    My wife was shopping for baby things few months back (we were expecting a baby that is now born) and found a nice basket in a baby store. The store was selling some stand for the basket but, obviously, I suggested my wife that I can build a cradle to fit the basket. After some discussions...
  17. Two Hand Screw Clamps for a Video

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] I wrote out these instructions for making a hand screw clamp. I ended up making two of them while filming the video (link to video here.) I posted the video earlier, but I'm finally posting it as a project. How To Make A Hand Screw Clamp by Dave Rutan Woodworkers...
  18. Early learning toy influenced by Montessori

    A simple toy for toddlers to recognize shapes and numbers. It's made from 12mm plywood and 10mm dowel. Made using basic hand tools :) Numbers are burned on with a pyrography machine. There are details on how to make this on my Instructables page here...
  19. reworked saw

    Just a hand saw I got from my grandfather. I initially epoxied the cracked handle and while sanding it, I wasn't happy with how it looked, it was kinda plain looking and a little too small for my hand. So I sketched it up on a piece of Mahogany and got a little crazy with it. It looks wicked...
  20. Aromatic Cedar Essential Oil Box

    Here is an aromatic cedar essential oil box that I made. It is in the green and green style. I used walnut for the pluges and the drawer pull. It also has a raised panel top and removable tray and drawer. The drawer sides are made of cypress. It was made entirely with hand tools, and holds about...
