  1. 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 :)
  2. Cabinet Handles

    Cut myself some handles for the shop cabinet I posted earlier, I guess should have taken a pic with them installed, but I'm sure you can imagine, ha. Cut them out of some leftover cherry, made them both different just to get some extra practice on my bandsaw. I should have taken pic of the...
  3. Gopro wood knuckles mount

    I wanted to think outside of the box, and make a go pro handle diferent than everyone else so after a while I came up with this design. Its easy to grab and has a nice feeling to it. Basically I pick up a piece of hard wood made a few holes with a dremel and give it the rough shape with a file...
  4. Tumbling Block Boards

    These are a couple more Tumbling Block boards I recently finished. The circular one is my first prototype of one like that. They are made from the same combination of Hard Maple, Cherry, and Black Walnut. This time around I made a little jig for gluing these together in rows. I'll try and...
  5. Handle for Japanese Pull Saw Blade

    A while ago, I ordered my first Japanese Dozuki Saw to realise I had bought a replacement blade only. Today, I took a piece of scrap Oak and made a simple handle to suit my hand. I cut a 2cm section of Galvanised Sheet Steel that I folded to form a spine and fitted it to the blade. I roughly...
  6. Curly Maply knife scale, epoxy, and Vingear Chemical Stain

    This one has a kind of fun way to chemicaly stain the wood :) Video: Depending on the Tannin content the wood can either grey out, or turn totally black (oak), or not do a whole lot at all. Fun to play with :) The stain in apple cider vinegar (1 jar) to a couple ultra fine steel wool pads...

  8. handles, an ongoing experiment

    I've been experimenting with different handles designs for screw drivers and chisels. This one is octagonal, 1.5" across flats. I turned the ends on the lathe and pressed a 1" OD steel tube section on the end. Sanding residue from the steel collar lodged in the open pores of the red oak. I...
  9. FING-le

    I needed a handle toggle latch for a new barn door I constructed, and not finding one, I ended up carving a FINGle instead. It is from a large piece of lilac wood, harder than all get out to carve, I kid you not! The second picture shows its size in relationship to my burly hand…
  10. Hand-le

    A small carved handle for a sliding ventilation door in my newly built heat pump room. It is about 4cm long and is carved from apple wood.
  11. Ice Cream Scoop

    My wife had a favorite ice cream scoop that she lost about 3 months ago. When I was at Rockler I found a kit to make your own ice cream scoop. Since she loves Birdseye maple I used that for the handle. About 20 minutes after I gave it to her she found her old one. Anyone need an ice cream scoop?
  12. Man Box For Husband

    Well its finally done! I finished the "man box" I was making for my hubby. It only took us a month working about 3 hours almost every night somewhere between 80 and 90 working hours total however a lot of that was learning time for me I take longer then I should to get things done since dad...
  13. Replacement chisel handle

    Perry (my 7 year old son) and I made this replacement handle for an old chisel he found without a handle in the junkyard….......(garage) We laminated scraps of white oak and mahogany. The brass ferrule is made from an old piece of 3/4" brass pipe. We turned the wood to rough shape, hammered the...
  14. A New Handle for a Not Very Old Saw

    I picked up this Disston saw for a dollar. The original handle was comfortable enough but really ugly so I replaced it. The handle is from a Moses Eadon tenon saw. The plan came from tgiag. The handle is probably cherry. Came from a dumpster.
  15. New Saw Handle

    So this was my first saw. I really didn't like the handle, and after ripping the first leg for my cabinet I was less than enchanted with the blade. I resharpened the blade but still didn't like the handle. After scouring the web / YouTube, I decided to update the saw with my own handle...

The handle is made from a elk antler , the first year elk grow straight antler , the antlers grow as 2 single spikes known locally as a '...
  18. Tap Handles

    I made a set of tap handles for a friend of mine (pictured). I turned the first out of a chunk of white oak he gave me. It had a beautiful heartwood/sapwood split down the middle of it. The second one is a checkered-style handle, made of maple and mahogany. Each row consists of 24 pieces of...
  19. Wood Shotgun Grip

    I had this ideia as soon as I bought the shotgun. I began by tracing the old handle on a piece of wood, I used a log from olive oil that was waiting for the winter in my fireplace. I started flatening the log and then traced the old piece, i had to use a jigsaw to make the cuts which wasnt easy...
  20. Ice Cream Scoop with Celtic Knot inlay, knurled and burned

    My first prototypes of this project went to relatives for Christmas gifts. I hadn't used the lathe in 15 or 20 years and started with some avocado "firewood". I kept refining techniques and learned to use glue liberally and patiently on the inlay. I used yellow heart and purple heart on this one...
