  1. Better than a Cardboard Box for Plow Plane

    After purchasing the Veritas small plow plane I decided that a cardboard box just wasn't appropriate to keep it in. My other planes hang on the wall so I can get to them easily but with the 5 blades plus the 3 beading blades it seems better to keep everything together. The box is made of a...
  2. Sliding lid box - first ever box joints

    This was thrown together on a whim while testing out a newly acquired cheap-o dado set. One joint didn't close up all the way but I chose to leave it instead of filling. The sides are maple flooring scraps and the top is an edge glued pallet slat of ash.

  4. Handcut Dovetail Box with Sliding Lid for Stanley 45

    My most recent completed handcut dovetail box. It is larger than the others and it is custom built to hold my Stanley 45 combination plane and cutters. It is poplar with a pine sliding lid and pine handles. I used a large chisel to chamfer the lid and give it a "pillowed" look/feel. There is a...
  5. A box for wood buddys birthday present

    A box for wood buddy's birthday present A wood buddy of mine Napoleon is having a round birthday one of these days. So I wanted to give him a little present. Know he had no trammel points, so I got some from UK, but how could I give him just that? So I made him a little box for them, an old...
  6. Boxes from Scraps

    I needed a box to protect my dial calipers and I had a piece of scrap flooring with some nice figure I used for the top. The box is from white oak left over from table legs. Bottom liner is craft foam. The second smaller box is a result of inability to throw away shorts. (wood that is) I'll...

  8. Pencil Box

    This project allowed me to try my hand at half dovetails and inlay work. I used my inverted router to hollow out the inside of the box and create the groove for the inlay.

  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I make archery bows and am having difficulty getting consistent results with Urac 185 epoxy (a resin with powder hardener) to put laminations, handles, etc together. I would prefer not to use a hot box, and was wondering if a liquid glue such as titebond II would be flexible enough when dry to...
