  1. Projects Axe handle fitting

    I will buying an axe handle for my true temper wood slasher axe head. The handle is oversized for tighter fit inside the eye. Axe head eye dimensions are 7/8 tapered to 5/16 with 3 ridges and 2 1/2 inches long. Will post pictures after I complete the handle to fit.
  2. General Woodworking Discussions
    I am attempting to make my first axe handle. The axe head I have is tapered from the back at 7/8in to 0.34in in the eye. The handle that was previously on it was 36 in long. I’m looking for pictures and advice on how to made an axe handle. It’s all greatly appreciated.

  4. 'CherryCows' Native Flute - Birdseye Maple

    (WOW - I just got an email yesterday from this group for the first time in 5 years! Seems, that somehow my account had been put in limbo by the system….glad to be back! I have updated my profile.) This Native Flute is made of Birdseye Maple. The second photo shows the Fetish-block that sits...
  5. CherryCows - Spokeshave Mule

    Howdy folks, I make Native Flutes, and do not use a lathe to make them round. Instead….I use this Spokeshave Mule that I constructed. Using a draw knife (or a spokeshave) you can preety much make square stock round, and it gives it a handmade look as oppose to a factory made commercial look...
  6. Froe - leaf spring and red oak

    A friend made three froes from leaf springs. In exchange for making three handles, I got one of them. Took a piece of inch-and-a-half square red oak, cut it into roughly 17" pieces, planed them square and then to octagons, then used a spokeshave to taper the ends to fit the froes. Two quick...

    spokeshave from Hock iron, really fun project read more details on my blog http://rogerxue-eim.blogspot.com/2016/02/spokeshave.html
  8. Elm spoon

    Had a scrap of elm that came off the edge of a piece I'm making into a stool, and decided it was big enough for a teaspoon. Knocked it out in about an hour and a half. Coping saw, spokeshave, hook knife and slojd, then some sandpaper and food-safe linseed oil.
  9. Japanese Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I built this Japanese stool for someone, and wanted to use only hand tools. The stool has 12 mortise and tenon joints, and is glued together. The lumber is recyled from an area construction site. The top was shaped using tons of saw kerfs as stop cuts along the top to the desired depth of the...
  10. Cedar Queen Bed Frame

    This project started out as just the headboard, then I added a footboard. I had intended on using existing metal rails, but my wife suggested I make wooden ones to match. The bed is finished with a light cherry stain to even out some of the colour variations in the cedar, then topped with 3...
  11. purpleheart spokeshave

    This is my first attempt at making a spokeshave, I saw Karson's Spokeshave class in the projects and a friend gave me the blade over a year ago.
  12. Spalted elm spoons

    Two spoons from scraps from the large slab of spalted elm that's going to be my new workbench and shop stool. The smaller one was a scrap I normally would have tossed, but I decided to try making a narrow spoon from it. It's almost all heartwood. The larger spoon is almost all sapwood. Both...
  13. Veritas Spokeshave Kit

    My parents gave me a Veritas spokeshave kit for Christmas. Of course, I wasted no time in finding a piece of wood to turn into a shavings-maker. This kit had great directions and solid hardware; easily put together as long as the directions are followed. I used a piece of wood that my friend...
  14. Spokeshave and Wooden Plane

    This is also a class project from my Woodworking Classes at Palomar College. I took the hand plane class and we referbished a used plane (show that next time) and built a wooden plane and a spokeshave. The best part of the class is learning all about planes and how to use them. I can hardly...
  15. Staked shop stool

    I needed a new stool for my shop. The one I mostly use is 18" high, which is too low for my new titanium knees (they'll get better), so I decided to make a new, taller stool. I took a piece of 3 inch wide 4/4 maple that was just under six feet long, ripped it in half, then crosscut it in half...

  17. Spokeshave

    Bought a Lee Valley kit for the large wooden spokeshave and finished this in a few hours. Made from scrap walnut, I really enjoyed this and may make another with laminated woods to give a little style :) Finish is tung oil. Again, very enjoyable for $35.00 and some scrap wood. The kit even...
  18. Recycled Curtain Rod Tripod Stool (Hand Tools Only)

    I found some great things at the county landfill, and among them was a mountain-I mean a literal mountain, of fabulous virgin wood. It was from a pallett off one of the freighters. Also in my inventory collection, were several curtain rods (from the 1960's) per my wife's mother, who had them up...
  19. Spalted elm shop stool

    Back in February, I bought a large slab of spalted elm I'm using to build a new workbench. A piece from the end of the slab was big enough for a stool, so I decided to build a tall and sturdy shop stool for myself. I cut two corners off a rectangular piece, then shaped the legs from red oak...
  20. Ebony Spokeshave

    So when I was building my perch stool, I very much missed having a spokeshave to help fare the outside curves. The other piece of equipment I felt I needed and didn't have was a travisher, but I'm still working on that one. At some point I had had a metal one (a Stanley copycat I think), but...
