  1. Tool Tote

    Tool tote made similar to Roy Underhill's infamous tote. Since I don't have Roy's book "The Woodwrights Apprentice" this tote is a bit different than the original. The main difference is the size. I made mine 20" long x 10" wide x 5" tall as a smaller size to carry around misc. tools while doing...
  2. Little Roy - Son's first tool tote

    I wanted to build something for my son. I had been watching Shannon over at The Renaissance Woodworker build the classic Roy Underhill tool tote and wanted to try one. Then I thought my son might like his own, so I used his as a test run. The tote, except for the bottom, is 1/2 poplar. The...
  3. 2019 Beer Swap - Wood 'n Leather Beer Chest

    Ok for the 2019 LJ Beer Swap I pulled together a Wood 'n Leather Beer Chest. Black Mesquite and Angelim ends and Tooled veg tanned leather front and back/top. The button is turned from Applewood provided by a fellow LJ'er. The handle is Aluminum and American Elm. Finished with 3 coats of poly...
  4. Don't laugh....

    I have a pile of frequently used tools that reside pretty much permanently on my assembly bench. And I'm constantly having to move the "pile" around to make room for various assembly projects. So I looked around the shop for something to keep them all in, and found a little tote that one of my...
  5. my first handsaw

    Hey everyone, I've been pretty busy lately, but I got a little time in the shop and was able to build this saw. It has a brass back that I slotted on my schools horizontal mill, and a .020 1095(I think) springsteel plate. I made he nuts by hand using 9/16 brass bar stock. I got all of my...
  6. saw bench and a few saw handles

    I made this saw bench a few weeks ago out of simple construction lumber and scraps. It is rough based on the schwarz' bench but I just threw it together to my likings. It really improved the efficiency of my saws and they are a lot more of a joy to use now. I also picked up two saws with ugly...
  7. Horse stuff tote for grand daughter

    Girls and horses. I've come to learn that there is something special about the bond between them and just about everything that goes with it. I made this tote out of some odds and ends of maple and cherry to go along with a tack trunk I made for her last year. In fact the panel in front of...
  8. Bentwood Rings

    Here's an assortment of bentwood rings I've made recently. - Walnut lined with birch - Mahogany - Red Oak - Bubinga - Rosewood - Tropical Olivewood These are finished with several coats of Arm-R-Seal and buffed with Black Bison. (Except for the last two, which have a natural oil finish applied.)
  9. 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...
  10. Rolling Tool Chest

    Here's the tool chest I built so I would be able to bring along all the tools I need when working outside the shop - around the house or at my daughters' house and apartment when requested. I got inspired when I saw those new store bought tool totes on wheels, but was knocked down by the price...

    Tote / caddy for the allotment kitchen. This is a tote, were made out of need in the beginning of the summer, as I were tired of bringing food from my gas fridge, into the kitchen in my wee allotment house, because I found my self running forward and backward several times. You can read more...

    Wine bottle caddy was made of oak, inner diameter 85mm, outer diameter 115mm. Two pieces joined together with 3mm beech plywood and screws. All was made of three pieces 120×120x20mm cross glued on top of each other, turned on lathe than cut into two pieces, rounded edges on router table. 10mm...
  13. Back saw handle update

    This is a project I completed a while back and never got around to posting. It is a 50's era Disston back saw that I picked up for $5 at a local antique store. I did not like the uncomfortable handle and did not care for its looks either. I took a cue from mafe , Brit and Paul Sellers. I do...
  14. Wood tool tote with dovetail joints

    Hi all. After seeing some great tool boxes here, I decided I needed to make one. I'm just starting out with woodworking (lots of DIY, a deck etc) and this is my second project. Here are the details on this tool box. It's made of 1×8 Poplar with a plywood base. The handle is hardwood dowel from...
  15. Tote for Carving Tools

    I started reorganizing my workshop, but I got tired of buying stuff for storage and organization. As part of that, a tool tote was on my list of things to build. When I started the project, I didn't have a plan for what I'm going to keep in the tote, but I went ahead and started making it. My...
  16. Stool Box....cause a stool is just too boring

    I need a stool in the shop so my youngest kiddos can help with projects. I didn't want a regular stool though because they just take up space and get in the way. They only serve one purpose. I came up with this stool box to combat that theory. I can actually flip it over use it as a carrying...
  17. Father's Day Gifts

    I looked down at the hunks of particle board with a contemptuous sneer. There was just no way this junk was ever going to be of any use. I was ready to throw it out but my contempt for the worthiness of the particle board aside, it felt irresponsible to burden a landfill and throw out a...
  18. Tote for My Dremel

    When I bought my Dremel, it came with a plastic case and a small box plus other features to organize accessories. Over the years, I realized that I really don't like the plastic cases that come with most handheld power tools. In addition, it didn't have a way to organize my ever-growing...
  19. Tool Tote

    Not fine woodworking! Cleaning the basement continues here, and hand tools keep emerging from under sawdust and boards… I have a simple tote that I made for target shooting originally, maybe 1980?? At some point, it was decided to use it for the few wood-working hand tools that I had… Well...
  20. Custom Tote & Knob for Stanley No 5 - 8 Hand Planes

    I refinished these handles from Michael K. Woodworks. They are provided to me with a shellac and paste wax finish and then I remove the paste wax with mineral spirits, remove the shellac with acetone, and then do some additional work to the knob before I refinish them. The wood is Bubinga and...
