  1. Antique Tool Restoration

    I helped a friend of mine, a couple months ago, clean out his wife's old house in Flint so they could sell it to Habitat's for Humanity. Up in the attic of the garage (a place his wife never visitied) we found some old tools that were extremely rusted. One of the previous occupants was a...
  2. Tool Box

    This was a project I had always wanted to make, but it didn't happen until a few years ago. Basic toll box, but filled with tools that I made. Most of the cutting tools were made from old chisels I had inherited from my grandfather many years ago. I did "cheat" a bit in that the drill bits...
  3. HAND-TOOL TOTE -- made using power and hand tools

    Under 30 hand tools can be packed into this tool box. The tool configuration/mix can be changed by changing the foam inserts. This product is great for rust prevention: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?p=68931&cat=1,43456 Used the box for more than three months with no rust damage...
  4. Tool box

    I saw this in a magazine and wanted to make it for my step son, he told me he would rather make it with me so we made two. This is mine, I am trying it as a box to hold my carving tool. This is the first time I tried hand cut tails and I learned a lot. We had a great time making them. Hand...
  5. Small Carved Mahogany Box

    It was a wonderful day in the shop. No electric motors spinning high speed steel at who knows how many revolutions per minute, and that meant no ear plugs, no dust collector running, and no dust mask. It was me, some hand tools, a sizable cut off of mahogany, a stocked MP3 player, and an idle...
  6. Tool tote / caddy (MaFe’s version) post

    Tool tote (MaFe's version) this is from the tool tote travel blog The short story is that I wanted to make this tool tote, to make my drawing come to life, but also to take a travel in the ways of doing things with hand or machines, how to join wood in different ways. To do the same thing in...
  7. Boxguy Channels Roy Underhill

    As Lumber Jocks many of you have seen Roy Underhill's PBS TV show "The Woodwright's Shop." Each show starts out with Roy carrying his tool box on a city street and making his way to his shop where he sets down his well-worn tool box on a bench. So I thought I would adapt his tool box concept...
  8. (Another) Carpenter's Tool Box

    The first one went to my li'l step-grandbaby. This one's for my nephew, Alexander. His … Idunno … maybe 11th or 12th birthday comes up soon. Between that and … my nightmares about my less-than-perfect dovetails the last time around … I thought this would be a nice gift. It's beetle-kill...
  9. Tool box organization

    I think we have all been here at some point. A tool box full of tools, but they are all jumbled up and hard to find anything. Well this year I finally did something about it. It started with a single 1/2" plywood divider in my utility knife drawer (not shown) to keep all of the contents from...
  10. Dovetailed Cherry Burl Beer Tote

    I gave away all of my beer totes as presents so decided to make one for myself. Cherry burl ends, paduak sides, purple heart handle, eucalyptus bottom, and poplar/maple/eucalyptus dividers. Tung oil and wax finish. Big powerful magnet to catch the caps and an ox head opener. Hand cut...
  11. Old Tool Box

    There is nothing particularly special about this box. It's totally utilitarian in nature. It's made out of poplar, the hardware is plain, there never was a finish put on it, and there is nothing fancy about the joinery. I built it about 14 years ago to simply hold my tools and keep them safe. It...
  12. My Tool tote...Proof that I need to take a class in Dovetailing.

    I'm taking a Hand cut Dovetail class at Woodcraft this next weekend from Rob Cosman. I decided that I needed something to carry my tools in and to demonstrate my true need to be in the class :). I built my tool caddy out of reclaimed pine and other scraps I had lying around. I think it turned...
  13. NBSS/Tommy Mac Tool Chest

    This project has been on my must build list for a while. I have viewed Tommy Mac videos's a few times, but I did not fully understand what was involved. Then I got a chance to meet Tommy and handle the Tool Chest in person at WIA in November. This helped me to fully understand what was involved...
  14. Rolling Tool Chest

    This tool chest is a basic box on wheels that I use for cabinetry installs and is sized to fit through even a small 24" doorway. It has hasps to secure the lid to the front panel and bolted on handles to securely lift its 80 lbs. when fully loaded. Soft rubber wheels were used to make it...
  15. Dovetailed, dovetail tools box.

    Off and on for years I would tackle hand cut dovetails. I adhered to the practise makes perfect cliche. Copious amounts poor practise produced just barely OK dovetails. I even took a class offered by my woodworkers club. There with a little instruction and a nudge to practise what i had learned...
  16. Tool Boxes,Walnut & Mahogany

    The mahogany box I built about 3 years after the walnut box. With this one I used a tambour front cover,cut-outs instead of drawer pulls,and I added a full height section to the back. All the raised panels are book-matched and each one is mirrored on the opposite side,and the drawer fronts have...
  17. Tool tray in cherry made with hand tools

    I made this tool tray using inspiration from other tool trays in LumberJocks. The bottom is 1/4 inch, the sides are 3/8 inch and the handle is 3/4 inch. The wood had some splits that look good, so I put them on the outside to highlight them.
  18. Router Bit Storage

    This is my first project in my new shop. I have always loved woodworking, and I have FINALLY been able to aquire some basic used tools (tablesaw, bandsaw, jointer, benchtop router table, and a drill press) that I've refurbished into an efficient shop. Funny thing is though, after I aquired the...
  19. Tool Box

    My son turned 5 in March and when I asked him what he wanted his answer was "real tools". I thought it would be nice if he had box to put them in, here is what I came up with. Him name is on the front and the year is on the bottom. Our last name is on one of the sides but the pictures don't show...
  20. My Anarchists Tool Chest, Finally, Almost, will never really be complete... but a slow continuation

    So here we start with 4/4 poplar, some of it was planned out for me by the mill, some I had to go at it with a plane. I use a No. 6 with a 8" radius blade as my jack, 22" Sargent jointer, and a No 4 LN with a high angle frog (this is not ideal to use with softwoods, I'll pickup my coffin or No...
