  1. Carpentry tool tote

    I've got some timberframing projects coming up, and as I collected the tools I need for that, I decided I needed a tote to carry them around in. This one is modeled on the tote Roy Underhill used, and is described in one of his books. Rather than having all four sides lean outwards, I decided to...
  2. Timber Frame Staircase with through tenons held with wedges

    You can watch the build process on YouTube I built this timber frame staircase from reclaimed beams that came from another client's house a few miles up the road. The beams use to support a pergola, that was torn down during their remodel. We templated the area where the stairs where going...
  3. Timber Framing War-Hammer... ok just a mallet

    5lb Timber Framing Mallet that I build yesterday from a scrap offcut (albeit large!) of reclaimed Blackbutt (hard, dense Australian native timber) for the head and nice lightly figured and straight grained Tasmanian Blackwood for the handle. I plan to use this during a small timber frame build...
  4. Timber Framing Sawhorses

    Made some solid timber framing sawhorses on the weekend. Made of 5" Cypress, mortise and tenon joints, draw-bored with 3/4" oak pegs. A little overkill in terms of bulk and strength but I had that cypress left over from another project. Going to start a small timber framing project soon so...
  5. Roundwood Sawhorse

    Another primitive project made with nothing but handtools. An axe, hatchet, handsaw, chisel, mallet, a chalkline and a level - maybe even a pencil too. I have a longish description of how I made these which I will likely post later as a blog. The techniques are a combination of log building and...
  6. Homemade Timber framing slick

    In this project I forge a timber framing slick from a piece of 6mm (1/4'') thick mild steel with a width of 70mm (2.77'') and a piece of high carbon tool steel forge welded to the end. For the handle I turned a piece of ash on a lathe. I secured the handle to the socket by first heating the...
  7. Woodworking Skill Share
    I (i.e. my wife) want to build a fully roofed space for my hot tub. I want to try my hand at some timber framing and figured this would be a good way to learn. I want a "lean-to" style rather than a peaked roof. It won't be attached to a house, but close enough that that I worry that water on...
  8. Designing Woodworking Projects
    After noodling around looking at platform bed plans, I'm about to embark on an adventure to build a queen size bed using some roughly 4×4 birch timbers that I have stored in my basement. My plan is to square up the wood, slice each timber into thirds and then reglue the slices after cutting...

    Starting Fine Woodworking Magazine published an article many years ago of a table that Sydney Barnsley built in the 1920's. The table is now in a museum in Cheltenham England. The article had original drawings that I redrew in Sketchup. I traveled to England last year to see the original and...

    Chain mortiser Here's a chain mortiser I picked up recently. These things aren't too common these days, except for timber framers who use portable ones that clamp to the beam you want to cut a mortise in. This is an older model stationary mortiser with a 2 HP 220 volt motor. It's very...
