  1. Box for my Sister in Law

    My wifes sister passed away a little while back and she asked me to make a box for her remains, never having made a box (except bandsawn) I asked about jigs for a miter joint and one of our members Eddy said come on over and he would help. I cannot say enough about his skills and friendship in...
  2. New box for old (dental) tool

    -So my cousin is marrying a dentist in September, they saved the date over a year back. I saw the T-handled "tooth wrench" in a vintage tools catalog last January and grabbed it. Rosewood handle, light surface rust, between 100-175 years old. Frightening to think about dentistry without...
  3. How do you protect pricey cowboy boots from a cat with an attitude?

    You build them a big fancy box, of course. A friend and his wife needed something to house their foot wear and I was more than happy to oblige them. Cherry frame with walnut veneered panels make up the body and the cedar lining create a bit of a cleat in front and back to rest a small tray that...

  5. Christmas Countdown/Pallet Christmas Tree

    My wife found plans to make flannel characters/symbols that tell the history/story behind Christmas to our daughter, but she needed a way to display them. We chose the design after looking around the internet and made a tree from pallets, with the tree made of red oak and the base from pine...
  6. Floral Swirl Round Box

    This piece is made from reclaimed and scrap timber. For the carving I used Red Gum which was only a trial as I was unsure how it would go. As you can see I persevered but I don't think I will use it again. Very hard and difficult to carve. But it served a purpose. The lid and base are floating...
  7. Walnut & Maple Blanket Chest

    This is a walnut and maple blanket chest I just made. It was a wedding gift for some friends. The picture doesn't show it, but the maple on the handles is heavily figured. It is a modified example of plans from either Woodsmith or Popular Woodworking. I lost the plans a while back and can't...
  8. Farm house table and benches

    another basic project. found a great set of plans online. Made up of 2×4s and 1×8s and many, many pocket screws! was my first time using a kreg jig and was really happy with the result. My wife used her wood burner to brand a "T C" with a little heart.

    I was able to get his drill on the cheap but not sure what make or model it is…can anyone lead me the right way? Thanks!
  10. Hand Tools
    I am very pleased with the end result, although it still needs final set up and a good lapping. About 40% of the japaning was missing and had some pitting so I chose to give it a different look and went with 5 coats Rustoleum hammered green farm implement paint. The tote and knob had so much...
  11. Blogs
    The Journey Begins stefang offered a challenge the other day for us to create a blog on hand tool use. That was good timing, because it's been on my mind for some time now. This will be a series in several parts-I don't yet know how many. If you are lucky, I will have the sense to know when to...

    Disston #4 backsaw rehab-Part 1-Cleaning, repairing, rehabbing Disston Backsaw Rehab-1 Cleaning, repairing and rehabbing I was in Salt Lake City recently on business. After dinner I slipped into my pajamas to watch tv and do one of my favorite on-the-road activities-look for tools on Ebay. Now...

    Part 1: Acquisition During a rust-hunting expedition last summer, I picked up six saws and a miterbox. I didn't really "need" it because I already had two sitting on shelves at home. Still, this one had all the earmarks of an industrial-age tool-definitely the early part of the 20th century...

    My first sweet garage sale old tool find this year. Disston saw w nice etch I say this is my first sweet old tool garage sale find this year because I plan on finding many cool vintage tools at garage sales this summer. I love garage sales because you never know what you are going to run into...
  15. Hand Tools
    Here is another freshly restored tool. It is a vintage type 7, (1893 - 1899) #66 beading tool. It works much like a small scraper (similar to the #80) but uses a small beaded blade instead of a flat scraper. The fence allows you to reference off the edge of your work. Originally, this tool would...
  16. Hand Tools
    I've seen a lot of information on how to adjust/condition/use a Japanese Kanna or smoothing plane, but I haven't seen much on their more specialized joinery planes. I just got a Japanese plow plane on ebay, and before diving in and playing with it, I was wondering if anyone had any information...
  17. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I'm a somewhat novice lumberjock, but am interested in learning. I have responsibility over a set of vintage (50s/60s) powertools that have been sitting idle in a backyard shop for about 20 years. They've been kept dry, though in hot temperatures, and I've noticed dry rot in some plastic and...
  18. Hand Tools
    It may not be old. It may not be a woodworking tool. But it is very well made and precise. The spring that keeps the tool open is especially elegant. I found it in the kitchen implement section at the local GoodWill.

    So I have this old drill press laying around and figured somebody may know more than I do about it. All I know is that its a drill press. Appreciate the help.
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hi All, I'm a young, aspiring fine woodworker who's looking to move up in the world. As I take on more projects, I'm realizing that I need a table saw that I don't despise with most of the bones in my body. I currently have an aging Sears Craftsman 10" direct drive saw. It runs fine, but...
