  1. router plane

    The mechanism is based on a combination of Derek Cohen's and Stumpy Nub's, so that should be pretty clear if you look up how those are constructed. I wanted to keep the body on the larger and rectangular side of things, since I plan to use this to plane down tenon cheeks, and a wide/long body...

  3. Router thicknessing sled

    I needed to remove a lot of wood from a very badly cupped slab. So I decided it was time to finally cross "router planing sled" off my list of "gotta build me one of those." Nothing too exciting about the sled itself, just a couple of pieces of angle iron screwed to some small pieces of scrap...
  4. Beer Storage and Brewing Table

    This was a quick utility project made with plywood and biscuit joints. Pocket screws were also used to increase strength because of the weight that the cabinet will have to hold. Also because of the weight we used edge strips to support and stiffen the middle shelf and top instead of veneer to...
  5. The "Zatoichi" Toolbox

    If you prefer not to read, the video is here Regarding the name of this project. Zatoichi is the main character from a series of movies by the same title. The first ones were made as far back as the 1960s and the most recent around the early 2000s. Zatoichi is a blind man who works as a...
  6. Small Router Plane

    I needed a way to clean out the bottoms of grooves and dados. This little router plane was just the thing. I've been meaning to make one for the longest time but never have until just the other day. It only took a few hours from start to finish. It's made of Cherry and the only finish is a...
  7. Entryway Shelf

    Was no room for a table in this entry way so I built a shelf. First project using Poplar and rabbet's.
  8. Elm, walnut & sassafras butter dish

    While making my shop stool I cut off a couple corners. Those pieces had some real nice patterns to the spalting and grain, and I decided that one of them would make a nice butter dish. I started by hollowing it out with a router plane. Then smoothed things out a little. I had some tear-out due...
  9. Small router plane

    Small router plane another of my tool making journeys I have a Stanley and a Record router plane, but sometimes it would be wonderful with a small router plane, I have been looking at the Veritas small router plane, but thought it could be fun to make my own, so when I purchased some stuff from...
  10. Marking Gauge Dovetail Practise Box

    Hi guys, Nothing too special. I am still trying to get proficient at hand cutting dovetails so make opportunities to keep cutting them. This box was more dovetail practise - I just decided I may as well build a box while I was at it to hold my marking gauges - there is a spot reserved in the...
  11. Stickley #72 Magazine Cabinet

    Stickley #72 I completed back in June 12'. Made of clear pine 4/4, 5/4, 6/4. Took around 15 hours to complete. Made with dado/rabbet/tongue and groove and mortise and tenon joinery. Finished with minwax 225. I've made much of the furniture in our living room and dining room which is why I use...
  12. gift box for custom bottle opener

    My future father-in-law is a fan of Snap-on tools so I've been on the lookout for a fun Snap-on related gift for the past several months. I found a jammed and rusted F-70N Snap-on ratchet at an estate sale for $0.50 and ground it into a bottle opener. I made custom holder for it out of red oak...
  13. OWT - (Old Woman's Tooth)

    I continue to be fascinated with shop made tools. This OWT (old woman's tooth) was inspired by the work of Derek Cohen from Perth Australia. I'm getting interested in making boxes and embellishing them, inlays are in the future. This is really the second one, the first one fell to the mistake...
  14. Plane Cabinet

    Greetings, I've got so much of my cut off that I ended up gluing them up to make a bigger board. I spent over 1 week doing that. I still have boxes of cut offs. I wanted something different in the way of just a raised panel in the door, I made a fixture to hold the board at an angle while I...
  15. Blanket chest in English elm

    I made this five or six years ago and it originally stood at the foot of our bed until we became sick of lacerated legs in the middle of the night. I'd had the piece of burr elm for some years waiting for the right job to come along and I added a piece along the back edge to improve the lid...
  16. 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...

    Inspired in one Paul's Sellers collection hand planes, I decided to make my own one as similar as possible in an easy way and using hand tools. In this video you can see the step by step. If you like the video please Subscribe to my Youtube Channel
  18. Douglas Fir Bar Stool

    Made this stool of douglas fir in a 4×4' corner of a shared apartment, using hand saws and planes. The stretchers are stilts I made and then repurposed. I made the dowels by ripping a piece of cherry and running it through an improvised pencil-sharpener style dowel maker. Finally have some...
  19. Shopmade Router Plane

    Last February I purchased a pair of rough bronze router plane castings on eBay for $15. This has been a work in progress ever since. This is how it started out.. I made a larger base for the main body out of rosewood and the knobs were turned out of more rosewood on my drill press. I used...
  20. Router Plane Box

    I, like many here already, got tired of having my Veritas router plane rattling around in a cardboard box, so I made this from some old pine boards that were slacking off in my cut off bin. The twist is that all parts external and internal (except hinges and latch) were made on a CNC. I had to...
