Today is only the second time in 30 yrs I’ve been to a garage sale, both neighbor hood deals, but this is the first time I came home with something… I had wanted to buy a pair of chairs and a table for my friends daughter for a year or so (hadnt really fooled around with woodworking at all)... So the first one I stopped at ...

Hand Tool Storage Cabinet (renamed thread) - 13 replies
Three hours ago I never even heard of one never mind seeing any… Unfortunatly I wont be able to say which thread I saw it in because I sometimes skip way back to see older threads… Once I saw what it was I already knew where it was going… It took about 1 1/2 hrs to dig out wood to build it with, I never keep sc...

The miter box is pretty much as received except for freeing up the rear guide rollers… The #7 I’ll probably do more to it at some point but for now I’ll take a break… I do think I overpaid for the #7 but except for the nickle on the lever cap there were no major problems so I bought it… But ...

No. 5 plane Restore and Repair (ongoing) - 11 replies
I bought these planes with some other goodies yesterday afternoon, I figured I’d play with this one first… I started out treating the parts as if they were an antique clock since I already had some cleaning solution handy… So far the harshest thing to touch it has been a brillo pad and some OOOO steel wool… ...

Advice needed to finish Trunk - 15 replies
This trunk was actually never supposed to be, it started as just a box (sides, bottom, top) just to get rid of wood under my bed… Unfortunetly ever time I was almost finished I’d look at the wood scraps and just kept adding to it… Wherein lies the problem, the top, front and rear banding is red oak, the front and ...

Dewalt Table Saw Mods (in Progress) - 5 replies
I started this improvement yesterday after mulling over if I could actually fit a bigger saw in my room. Unfortunatly thats never going to happen… This first mod is to improve dust collection when I get a dust collector, it will have a 4” centrally located bottom port for a dust collector… To make sure I’...

As stated I picked up this through a trade at a local used tool shop, for some engine building equipment I’ve just been moving from one shelf to the other for years… It seems to been in fairly good condition, no guide or 1/4” collet (does have the 1/2” collet) but from what I can see just needs to be taken apart and cl...
