  1. Hand tool caddy

    I built this hand-tool caddy as a way to practice some hand-tool skills (proud dovetail pins and through tenons, half-blind dovetails, string inlay) and to have a convenient and portable tool cabinet that would not take up too much space when sitting on a workbench. The cabinet is walnut with...

  5. Saw Till - First Dovetail Project

    Hi Guys, I recently completed a saw till for my workshop and hopefully you don't mind me sharing. It is made from cheap 3/4" softwood as I initially made it as a practice run, but now that it is hung and has the saws in it, I think I will be keeping it for a while. The design is something...

    got to go The old saw til, that is… After building an enclosed Plane Til, and a tool cabinet….this dusty thing just won't do, anymore. Any saw I take out of this thing, would need wiped down, before I could even use the saw….not to mention the spiders needing to move. So, thinking of...

    Handsaw honey hole: 6 saws and a miter box In the words of the baseball great Sammy Sosa, "Garage sales have been very, very, good to me." Or at least that's what I'd think he'd say if his run of saw luck was as good as mine. The Craig's List garage sale ad touted "vintage/antique handsaw...
