  1. Replacement tote for a Stanley hand plane

    Here's the end result of my adventures in hand plane tote making. I think I put maybe 3 hours total work into this project. I learned a few new things, indeed made a few mistakes, but the end result fits like a glove. I used an off cut of Curly Maple a friend of mine had laying around for...
  2. Replacement chisel handle

    Perry (my 7 year old son) and I made this replacement handle for an old chisel he found without a handle in the junkyard….......(garage) We laminated scraps of white oak and mahogany.

  3. Flight Equipment Plaque

    Just finished making this plaque for a retiring Flight Equipment technician who went on to become the State Command Chief for the CT Air National Guard. I cut the helmet in half freehanding it on a table saw. I couldn't find my laser level to put a straight line across it to mark it for...

  5. Replacement handle for coffee machine

    Well, Portugal is a land which is hold together with coffee and port. The machines though are often equipped with a lot of plastic parts, even the handles on the coffee-holder, which gets hot and needs some force to put on and of the machine. No wonder that these handles break after sometime. A...
  6. Bench

    This is a bench that I built as an anniversary present for my wife. She mentioned that she would like to have a place to store the kids toys on the screened porch. So I surprised her by building this while she was away with her family. It is made up of 3/4" sandply, beadboard, and pine...
  7. New handle for my favorite mug

    Had a bit of whimsical fun with this one. I got the idea of a saw handle on a coffee mug, but it took me quite a while to figure out the best way to attach it without the mug slipping out and making it as easy as possible to take the mug out to clean it. (I actually use it - this is not a...
  8. Replacement Tote

    It's sad to have a de-horned tote on a plane. Might be original, but definitely not comfortable to use. I got a board that was used for something like a wheelbarrow ramp, but turned out to be full 4/4 walnut. Not enough to make furniture, but ideal to use for replacement handles. I have a...

  10. Indian Girl

    I've never redone a piece before so I thought I'd re-do my first portrait. I wanted to see how much I've improved with all my practicing. I did the Indian girl on the Basswood Round in 2005…I've re-done her on Birch Plywood…not as smooth as basswood, but wait till you see the difference!! When I...

  12. Making a Marking Knife

    About 4 or 5 years ago (who can remember those kind of details) I bought 4 marking knife blades from Hock Tools I bought 2 of the 1/4" marking knives and 2 of the 3/4" blades. I kind of sharpened them up and put them back in the package. After giving one of the 3/4" blades to a friend. He has...
  13. Awl and Marking Knife Swap

    I made this boxed set for the LJ marking knife and awl swap. The wood is spalted maple that I stabilized and turned. The ferrules are copper tubing. The steel for the awl started out in life as a spade bit and the blade of the marking knife is from a piece of O1 tool steel I had laying...

    Hey everyone, quick project I put together on how I made homemade/wooden shop lights with LED bulbs. Really easy project that adds lots of light and can use up some scraps. Only thing I had to purchase were the bulbs. Heres a video I did with the step by step.
  15. Harbor Freight Hand Plane Tote Handle Replacement

    I am nearing completion of a kitchen remodel and in so suffered a casualty. My Cheap-O harbor freight hand plane's handle suffered a traumatic injury. Before you scoff at me and tell me how much this plane sucks. Stand by… I have spent some time sharpening the blade, flattened the necessary...
  16. Replacement Pine Doors

    I was commissioned to make 4 replacement doors for an old built in cabinet in an old home. The new doors are exact replicas of the old ones but are unfinished because the home owners wanted to paint them to match the house. The old cabinets where all out-of-square, so the install was a little...
  17. Walnut Saw Handle

    I never did like the cheap handle that came with this saw. It was rounded on the top and didn't have a horn to keep your hand from sliding up. I had to constantly fight to keep my hand on the saw-it was a tiring process to cut a tree down. I used one of my Disston panel saws as a template and...
  18. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I am trying to get to work my neighbor's bandsaw which hasn't been in use for about 10 years. I went through the manual, changed the blade and adjusted the tension, the guards and such things. The saw worked reasonably well for a few minutes until it started to vibrate with quite a noise and...
  19. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    . . . . I picked up a delta 46-111 wood lathe with the original stand. Someone installed a metal toggle on/off switch onto the motor housing itself. Bad place and not safe. I am looking on the web for a safe and aesthetic solution to this problem. I am fairly adept at house wiring, have...
