  2. Scrap Oak Scrub Plane (Hand tools only)

    I am not a plane maker. This was my first venture into the land of plane making. And since I am trying to migrate over to using hand tools only, I made this with only hand tools.

  3. Low Budget Dowel Maker

  6. Open Back Bookcase

  7. Twist of Cane #2

    I know I need to get more pics, it'll happen eventually. This is the second one of these I have done. The first one I built went to my dads girlfriend and it was actually stolen.

  10. Rustic Cedar Rocking Chair

    Our neighbor up at our cabin found some short pieces of cedar poles that the loggers left at their logging site, so he kindly donated them to me.

  19. Hand Tools
    I see coach maker planes online in the various places that I haunt on the interweb and I know what one is when I see one. The problem is that I do not know what the definition is. Every time I see "coach maker plane" it always is some little squirrel tail grooving, dado or rebate/ rabbet plane...

With an email conversation with woodturner Ernie Conover, he made mention that Sharpie pens are NOT permanent and will only last a short period of time so India Ink is one of the few that will...
