  1. Wooden Mallet

    I started getting inspired by all the home made tools that other LJs out there have posted and made this wood mallet. It was a long over due project as I needed one desperately for my wood handled chisels. It is turned from a laminated blank of red oak and walnut for the head and the handle...
  2. Simple Homemade Tools

    The first four photos show an improved block sander. Hand sanding is made easier by adding a handle to an ordinary home made block sander. The last two photos show an easy to make bow sander. This simple tool is useful when rounding off corners in small piece as in intarsia. It consists of a...
  3. Panelplanes..the one I wouldn't build

    This was the plane I built for Andy along with the one I have been using since 1997.
  4. Homemade Wooden Router Plane

    Inspired by James Wright's (@woodbywright) YouTube video, I decided to give making a router plane a try. I didn't do the route of making my own iron and went with a Lee Valley Tools one. That, along with $5 worth of hardware and a piece of Osage Orange log I had lying around the scrap pile, the...
  5. 14" Bandsaw

    This bandsaw project was out of necessity, I didn't have one and didn't want to spend the money necessary to buy a quality one. They say ignorance is bliss, so I thought what the heck, I will just build one. I have been a fan of Matthias wandel and his website woodgears.ca for some time now...
  6. Pantorouter

    This is another Matthais Wandel of woodgears.ca inovation called the pantorouter. I thought that this was a very cool tool to add to my arsenal because it can do so many things. The template shown mounted is a box joint template, and yes that is duct tape on one side of the spacers :). It...
  7. Couple of Wooden Mallets

    I made these a few weekends ago and each has been put to quite a bit of use already. I cut the head on the "primitive" one from a log I picked up at our local yard waste site. Can anyone help me id the species? It has a mustard yellow tint, and is a pretty dense wood. The bark is very course...
  8. ShopMade ScrollSaw

    As I had never ever scrollsawed in my life I decided to try this. With no scrollsaw on hand and, not wanting to spend big money on a scrollsaw to try it I decided to try to make one. Some google images later I came up with some ideas that started spinning in my head. I did not have any plan but...
  9. Homemade Woodturning Tools - Hollowing Tool

    Today I made a hollowing tool for my lathe starting from an Allen wrench. You can see the "making of" video here: I first saw this kind of tool on Sam Angelo's Youtube channel. I turn mostly miniatures, so I made a small one, but it can be made in any size using the same method.
  10. Marking gauge

    In this video I make a marking gauge from a 10mm steel rod, a 30mm steel hex bar, 5mm thick brass, some screws and a washer. For the cutting part of the marking gauge I used a normal washer that I've attached to a blot with two nuts and chucked it in a drill to sharpen it on a grinder. I then...
  11. My Version of the Chisel Plane

    I do not usually post the tools that I make as projects, preferring to blog about them instead, and I will probably write a blog about the making of this chisel plane, but it works well, looks cool, and I wanted to show it off. I got the idea to build this plane from other Lumberjocks who have...
  12. Front post

    I built this front porch post to replace one that was rotted out at the bottom. I used four pieces of pine that I mitered and biscuit joined together after using my router to create the grooves. To help insure that this post would not rot out, I vented it. The second picture is of the vented top...
  13. Drum Sander – A lathe Attachment

    I have been working on this for a while now. I have a large 46-450 Delta Turning Lathe, that I really don't use all that much. After seeing a couple homemade drum sanders online, I decide to make my own version that would attach and detach to my lathe. I wanted a wide, always level table so I...

  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Been toying around with the idea of making a thickness sander or a slot mortiser when i found this website. http://woodgears.ca/ He has some pretty amazing tools, machines, toys, etc. His homemade slot mortising machine is beautiful! he also has great videos and even sells plans. If you havent...
  16. Marketplace Classifieds
    I am looking to acquire printed plans once offered by Gilliom Manufacturing under their "Gil-Bilt" brand name. Starting just after WWII they began selling plans with and without the needed hardware, as many of the hardware components could be made or locally sourced. The plans they offered...
