  1. Swan neck bow saw

    I purchased the hardware from Gramercy Tools (toolsforworkingwood.com). The stretcher is cherry wood, the swan neck cheeks are hickory (the wood Gramercy uses for their build). The handles and the toggle are from a wood pile of "domestic cutoffs" at Woodcraft. It's a light wood with prominent...
  2. DIY Burnishing tool on the cheap

    Hi LJ! I always believed that burnishing tools are overpriced so I made one for myself for just 3$ metal HSS steel rod and some scrap wood. The burnisher is an indispensable tool to create the hook on a scraper that will provide a crisp surface on your wood piece. So I encourage you to see the...
  3. Miter Jig

    This is the "miter box" I reach for to cut quick, accurate miters or cross cuts in small and fine stock. I use a Japanese-style pull saw. The Japanese pull saws make extremely smooth cuts. This jig was made from scraps but I love how well it works. I highly recommend making one if you don't have...
  4. Homemade AWL (with little metalwork)

    Hi everyone! As a part of a maker challenge from an online market I decided to make this homemade awl for their workshop. I've made it from a small branch of bog oak and a twisted screwdriver, using mainly my wood lathe. This is my first time with a multi-scraper. It definitely don't replace at...
  5. Hand Tool Project - Book Ends

    Hey LJ! As some may know I use maily power tools when woodworking, although I do used often use hand tools when it is appropriate. So after countless request I took the time to do a video where I make some VERY simple bookends using handtools. It took MORE time and I wont be converting any time...
  6. Kerfing Plane

    Another kerfing "plane" from Tom Fidgen's "The Unplugged Woodshop". Teak, with a beeswax+BLO finish. Hardware from Badaxe. I've a big project coming up for herself in the fall and will need to resaw some cherry. Am hoping this helps. The teak is heavy, but fits my hands nicely. A trial on...
  7. Krenov-Style Block Plane

    I finished making a 6" block plane, inspired by both James Krenov and William Ng today and I am pretty happy with the result! I sat in on a class that William taught, and I got caught up in the idea of making some of the hand tools I work with. That, coupled with Seeing Yeung Chan's Tools up...
  8. Couple of wooden planes

    Here's the story: my main project is a workbench build. Almost done. You know, "almost" may last longer than you want it to. So to finish it I need a router plane (have couple of ideas, but they're still cooking…). And to make a router plane I needed couple of other planes: round moulding...
  9. New handle for an old screwdriver

    Here is the first handle I have turned. Found the old screwdriver shaft at an old farm and it was missing the handle so the first project was born. I made the handle out of chesnut wood with a 3/4" brass hex nut to turn down the ferrule. Finished with 3 coats of linseed oil and several coats...
  10. Birdseye Maple and Mahogany Computer Case

    This was a computer that I built for my parents for Christmas. It's relatively low powered hardware, and is used to run Plex so they can use it to record and watch TV shows. The front and top birdseye maple pieces have continuous grain around the corner, and the bottom platform is from...
  11. Make a Mallet with 3 Tool

    Friends: I've been trying to make things with an ultra-minimal toolkit recently. You might remember the little bench I did with just a saw, a hatchet, and a drill. Well, there were times during that build that I needed to hit the back of the hatchet (much like you would tap a chisel). I used...
  12. Shop made tools #2: Marking Gauge with Mistake

    About a year ago I made this little marking gauge. Just for the fun of making. But there's a big mistake in it. Try to find it and let me know! :) LOL
  13. Ryczka/Golden Ratio Stool made from reclaimed wood

    Today I decided to build a Ryczka Stool using the wood I'd salvaged from a pallet the other day. First off, I needed to work out how big it should be. I'd recently read about the "Golden Selection" ratio, a ratio of sides that together form, what is considered visually most pleasing. The ratios...
  14. Chisel hammer ( David Barron copy)

    This is my copy of David Barron chisel hammer. I used 1 1/2" brass rod instead of 1 1/4" and mesquite for a handle. Black walnut for a wedge and 1/4" brass to pin it. Total material cost is $11.
  15. Shop made tools #3: Dovetail marker

    I made this dovetail marker a while ago. The slope is 1:6. I made it from some scrap wood. Thanks for watching and comments are welcome. Bas
  16. Shop made tools #5: Center Finder

    I needed a center finder, so I made one :) The wood is walnut. The brass is cut from 1×10 mm strip. It's dead accurate, so very usefull Altough I could pay more attention to some details. Little explanation how to use: Thanks for watching. Bas
  17. transitional hand plane

    I saw an article in wood magazine about using the frog of a transitional hand plane and making your own. I really liked this idea, and I wanted to try a plane that had a horn and a traditional handle in the back. I happened to come across and old rotted out, rusted out plane in an atique shop...
  18. Frame saw

    I just finished this customade tool for a client. It is made with quarter sawn beech and the hardeware + saw blade is from Bad Axe. I prefer beech for a hardworking tools than other woods. I made it using hand tools only. I hope you like it. Isra.
  19. Marking gauges

    Hi, Happy new year to all. I have been making a family of marking gauges. The smallest one is made of walnut, screw made of ash and the wedge is maple. The medium is made of walnut and the wedge is made of holly. And the bigger one is made of walnut and ash. The blades are japanese steel. The...
  20. No Excuses Sawbench

    I have long wanted a second saw-bench. Don't get me wrong, I love my first one. It's built like a tank, and its extra girth has made is so much more than just a panel sawing station…but it's so darn heavy. I have taken this to a few job-sites and it's a drag to haul around. I decided that like...
