  1. Brass and Purpleheart Pinch Sticks

    My first LJ Swap. I made these pinch sticks with Purpleheart and Aluminum sticks and brass/Ebony and brass/Pink Ivory keepers. Here is a link to my blog on the build. http://lumberjocks.com/Bluenote38/blog/127881
  2. 2018 Layout and Marking Tool Swap

    So these were my entries. They all came from the same chunk of Satinwood Burl. At first I was hoping to go with all damascus for the metals, but then I saw the prices and decided against it. While looking for the Damascus though, I had the burl cut in to rough sizes and threw it in the vacuum...
  3. Walnut & Poplar Box with Copper - all reclaimed / salvaged materials

    This here is my main contribution to the 2014 Box Swap and it went to Clieb91. I also made another little box that went to his little girl, but I'll post that as another project. All materials in this box are reclaimed or salvaged. The box is made of black walnut and poplar, finished with...
  4. Screwdrivers and Marking Tools

    As the title of the post suggests, the latest swap was screwdrivers and marking tools. Since I don't have a lathe to make handles for the obvious entries, I decided to make a trifold bit index that I came across in the Woodsmith plans. It holds both drill bits and the various driver bits. It...

  9. Surprise Swap Bluetooth Speaker

    For the Surprise swap I built a shop item that I had been wanting to build for myself for a while, a Bluetooth speaker. The speaker and Bluetooth board came from Amazon and turns out it is really easy to set them up and get them to connect and play your music. The wood used for the box is...
  10. Machinist's Hammer and Carver's Mallet for Swap

    This is my offering for this year's Mallet Swap. My main project was a machinist's hammer. This guy ended up weighing in at a hair over 3# so it's a good sized whacker. I figure most anybody can use a good sized hammer with one steel face and one brass face. The head diameter is around...
  11. New Mallets for the 2019 Mallet Swap

    THis was a really great swap for me. First I got a great Tungsten filled banger from HungryPacman which is perfect for dovetailing. Second I got to try a lot of new things, methods, techniques and woods. After making a number of mallets of various woods and handle styles I picked the best three...
  12. 2019 mallet swap - three items

    My entry for the 2019 mallet swap consisted of three hammers for Dave (KelleyCrafts). The biggest is a small sledge I handled using pecan. I'd been given the pecan log as firewood, so the handle was truly made from scratch. The next is a regular joiners mallet (not NEARLY as fine as most of...

    Another great swap in the books - and a special thanks to Dave P. for herding the cats this time! BBQ Swap 2020 is in the books though not without a little craziness on my part.

    Gather around children, and I'll tell you the story about The Ugly Little Jack Plane That Could. I've been lurking and infrequently posting to this site for almost a couple of years now. I sat out the last swaps this site did, the mallets and marking gauges. I wasn't confident enough in my...

The sides are cut at an 7 DEG.angle to make...
