  1. Handy Cheap Small Awl

    I turned these small Awl handles from scrap Oak. I use a type of 4mm wall tie that seem to be stainless steel and very hard. I have a few of these Awl's about the workshop. They are really handy and cost almost no money to make :) I have a tutorial on how I made these at Instructables
  2. Simple Router Plane

    I built this very basic but functional Poor Man's Cordless Router from scrap Poplar and Oak and used a sharpened Allen Key for a blade :) I laminated two pieces of Poplar together to provide the thickness I needed. The blade holder is a simple knob with 6mm threaded rod epoxy'd in. I drilled a...
  3. Home made lathe - solid attempt

    So… I wanted a lathe, but did not want to buy one. Too cheap… So what does a person do? Make your own. I reviewed Matthias Wandel's and Ryan Nodwell's lathe designs on their respective YouTube channels and based on their approach I crafted my version in sketchup. Initially, I designed it as...
  4. Deadblow mallet

    I built this deadblow mallet with *********************************** for the head, and hickory for the handle, wedged with a little bit of walnut. I followed a plan that I had saved on my computer from a long time ago, from Shop Notes magazine? I can't find the original plan anymore, just the scan I have. The pockets...
  5. Shop built scraper plane

    I've really gotten into making tools. I've made several hand planes in the past and when I decided to make my toted plane, I was searching for different pictures to work on the design. While searching I came across an online article at Popular Woodworking.com by Nick Engler about a scraper plane...
  6. Shop Made Oscillating Edgesander

    Sanding edges on a 12" disc sander only leave you with 6" of sanding surface before you move into dangerous territorium passing over the right side of the spinning disk going upwards. Anyone who has ever tried this know what I am talking about. So I decided I wanted to make an edgesander, with...
  7. Sturdy sawhorses for slab work

    The wife wanted a new dining table, and I wanted to be able to work indoor during the winter, so naturally the table is going to be a slab table larger than my small 2mx2m workshop :) So after having bought some wood, next step is to build a set of sturdy sawhorses to build off. The sawhorses...
  8. Workbench

    I completed this bench a few months ago. It is already pretty dirty and nicked up, but it is a workbench and not a piece of furniture. It is based on the the design by Paul Sellers in his book Working Wood. It is made out of Big Box store mystery grade construction lumber. This was built with...
  9. The Finished Thickness Sander

    I've been working on this for a while. Will post a blog of the progress and more detail as I get it together. The blog series begins here- http://lumberjocks.com/lew/blog/27660 Thanks to all the folks who inspired me and provided information when they made theirs. Most of the information...
  10. Shop made Bandsaw

    Here is my homemade bandsaw that I built using plans form Matthias Wandel over at woodgears.ca. It took me a couple months of night and weekends to build it, and someday I'll add paint or varnish, but this thing is amazing! I've used it to resaw wood that is over 13" thick, and the throat...
  11. Shop Made horizontal slot mortising machine

    Inspired by Mattias Wandels multi slot mortising macine (www.woodgears.ca) I decided to give it a go. Had some parts laying around from an old edge banding machine that we disassembled at work a couple of years ago, and thought I could make use of this. I had a dual, crossing, linear ball...
  12. an Updated Coffin

    lets start with a great big thanks to terryR who made me this wonderful mallet in last years mallet swap..It's quickly become my favorite mallet. It was very useful in making this coffin plane. I wanted to do one, and thought I would just dress it up a little. this was the inspiration It's made...
  13. Maloof inspired Walnut Rocker (crazy)

    This is one of my normal type of rocking chairs in design. Not truly Maloof but it emerged from his originals. Anyway, I collect figured wood and occasionally I just slap it all together and whatever comes out…well…comes out. That's why I call it "CRAZY". For instance the left arm does not...
  14. Slippery Slope

    It all started with the chevalet. I was looking for a better way to cut marquetry. Then there were the workbenches ..... my excuse was that they presented an interesting challenge in design. Now I've gone and built wooden hand planes. All hope is lost. I'm inexorably being drawn to the dark...
  15. Shop made Krenov inspired smoothing plane

    Here is a shop made Krenov inspired smoothing plane. Made from white oak for the body, wenge for the cross pin and Ash for the wedge. I blogged its creation as well.
  16. Improved Bar Clamp Made with Limited Tools

    As the old saw says: You can never have too many clamps. Over the past year or so, in the times that I have needed a bar clamp for a project, I always need more 2 footers than anything else. Since I recently came up with an upgrade for my old shop built clamps, I thought I's make a few more...
  17. Shop Built Drill Press Table

    I've recently finished building a Drill Press Table for my G7947 DP, which I purchased earlier this year from CL. I looked at lots of images of DPTs on google and WW forums for ideas. My table is my own design but incorporates several ideas borrowed from other people's shop built tables. From a...

  19. Shop Built 6"x48" Belt Sander

    I was inspired by Woodsmith Magazine and Matthias Wandel's Youtube videos of shop built power tools to make my own belt sander for the shop and I figured if I am going to make one, I might as well make one larger than the cheap ones you can find everywhere for around $100 or less. I borrowed...
  20. Shop Built Air Cleaner

    I was working on a project with white oak and was fuming it. I had some time to kill while that was happening and so I decided to add to the shop. I had been wanting to build the air cleaner for a while, but it was low on my list. A more detailed discussion of the build can be found in this...
