  1. Ball Peen Hammer Restoration

    The video is more how to make one than just showing the handle. View on YouTube I got a neat little ball pein hammer head over the weekend, no makers mark of any kind on it. I also got some nice pieces of padauk from the scrap bin and I wanted to put them to use. The head when I got it...
  2. Tool chest ? ....

    The chest is made out of cedar, salvaged from an old corner cabinet disassembled 20 years ago when we moved to our current house. Fortunately I kept the lumber in the attic for all this time. I have been researching for a tool chest since a couple of months ago. (I don´t know why surfing the...
  3. The Mahogany Madness Machinist Chest!

    LOTS of pics/reading to follow just FYI Video is here if you prefer not to read. View on YouTube This project is one that took a while to complete. Arguably the hardest part of it was just finding the time to build while working full time and being married! I had wanted a sort of "bench...
  4. Mahogany Machinist ToolBox

    A Custom sized machinist toolbox to house lathe tools including larger quick change tool holders, threading toolings, centers, chucks, and other gauges and machining tools. I was not able to find any toolbox that would fit some of my tools so decided to make my own, while at it, why not use...
  5. Thanks, Harry...

    Hello. My name is Matt. These are my first woodworking "projects." The title of this post, is an homage to Harry Gerstner. One day, about 10 years ago, I saw a Gerstner tool chest for the first time and remember screaming on the inside, "WHAT IS THAT?!! I want one." Then I learned how proud Mr...
  6. Castle De Bryce -n- Brock

    This is a bed I built for my Boys a few years ago. I had just got divorced and the kids were pretty stressed about having to split time between the X's house and mine. I built this bed for them to help ease their pain. Turned out pretty good too if I say so myself!!! I got the design from...
  7. Step Stool

    I made this little step stool for my great granddaughter, McKinlee, so she can get into her "big girl" bed. She has to be lifted up every night so this should fix that. This stool is made from all maple plywood It is assembled with only glue and dowels. There are screws in the hinges. I made...
  8. Machinist Tool Box

    Just my second post, hope you like it. I made this machinist tool box after seeing Gerstner and Sons boxes on ebay. Solid Oak. Arch raised panels. 270˚ hinges and lid lock from from Lee Valley. Felt for the drawers and upper tray. Aluminum pulls are my own creation. Clear satin water based...
  9. Machinist Tool box

    This is a machinist add-on box for some large mic gauges. The box measures 42" wide by 12" deep and 9" tall. It is made from red oak with a nicely grained white oak drawer front. The knobs are also white oak that was turned on the lathe. The drawer is maple with a lined bottom and tool rests...
  10. Tool Chest

    This is machinist's tool chest that I made for my oldest son a while back. It is white oak and figured walnut veneer. The mirror frame is pear.
  11. Wood & Lumber
    So I've heard all the stories about the old timers using motor oil to treat their fence posts. I've heard that this can make the posts last for decades. But I've also heard all the worries about it harming the soil on the land. I'm a young college student that cant afford to go buy a bunch of...
  12. Woodturning
    I took Machine Technology in college. I'm kind of interested in working with wood instead of metal. What all would I need to have a setup and what kind of wood is used? Where would I get the wood from? Is there much money to be made making and selling wood crafts? I would think what I learned in...

    This is another uncommon tool in very fine condition. The Stanley 39 1/2 with the brass top, from the Sweetheart era, in this condition, is quite rare. This one is 6" long and the bubble is in terrific working order. The brass and steel have a nice patina and have not been over cleaned. A...
  14. Woodturning
    A while back I got a killer deal on a few tubs of goodies. I ended up with several high end gauges, a 3/4 horse variable speed, reversible DC motor and controller, 123 blocks, a slew of HSS cutters for a machinist's lathe and on and on, for around sixty bucks. Some of the things I'll sell at...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    This is a simple question that I'm sure is going to make a lot of lathe owners laugh. I am building a really simple spring lathe but one of the first things that will get located is the tool rest and it won't be movable. So I need to know, what is the height of the tool rest supposed to be...
  16. Woodworking Skill Share
    Hi All: Long time lurker, first time contributor. I've found LJ to be a wonderful resource as I've begun the woodworking journey. As my handle indicates, I'm relatively new to woodworking. I just recently moved into a single family home in Chicago with a 400 sq ft garage-quite the luxury in...
  17. Focus on the Workspace
    I have been refurbishing my late grandfather's machinist chest. The veneer on the inside of the lid cupped to the point of splitting. I peeled the entire length off, and did my best to get glue underneath and good clamping pressure with cauls, but there's still one point in the middle that...

    Design - Feedback Welcome I've seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in...

    Design Shortly After completing the toolbox that was posted here: I realized that I'll need some setup to hold the larger tool/components/etc as it just won't fit into the small toolbox. I looked around at kennedy, snap-on, and other similar toolcarts and they are either too big or too $$$...
