Beltsville, Maryland - Cabinet Maker Closing Shop - Auctioning all Tools

881 days ago by McLeanVA | 2 comments »

First, let me say that I am absolutely i no way affiliated with this auction or the seller. A friend of mine sent me the link because he knows I like woodworking tools and saw the shop that was closing happened to be somewhat near me. Looks like a pretty giant selection of tools. Everything from big power tools to a few hand tools. I’m not really in the market for anything at the moment, but figured I’d share this in case your deal hounds were looking to score a tool or two....

Exercises in Artisanship #5: Handles, auctions, and progress

832 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well folks a little more progress slowly coming into form on the maple handle design. Once more continuing to go about my shop efforts in a relaxed yet challenging pace. Shorter creative bursts giving forth an hour here or even a half hour there. I seem to leave the shop more satisfied knowing a more quality effort is being put into it all. The learning is actually becoming more than the old 3 hours straight and making various things with a mind almost in total fast forward mode with tools...

Huge Estate Sale - 300+ Planes!

546 days ago by grfrazee | 2 comments »

This past weekend there was an estate sale in Ottawa, IL. The owner of the estate apparently was a huge tool collector, because there were more planes on sale there than I’ve ever seen in my life. For example, the owner had five No. 113s, at least five #12s, more block and bench planes than I could keep track of, and the ever elusive and ever-so-tiny Stanley #1. Since I’ve been looking for a few things, I figured I might as well make the 1:15 drive from Downers Grove and ...

Auction antique tools success

851 days ago by YorkshireStewart | 16 comments »

I popped into the viewing for an auction of assorted paraphernalia last week and left a bid on a box of tools, as I couldn’t get back for the auction itself. A cast iron shooting plane had caught my eye in this mixed box. It’s a long way from being a Lie Nielsen or a Stanley, but it looked like one I could clean up and use. I ‘won’ the lot for GBP40 / $63 (surprise surprise, it went for my maximum bid!). However I’m happy with that even though there was a h...

Tools #1: Disston D8's and Warrented Superior logging saw..

736 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 0 comments »

I picked up two Disston D-8 handsaws with thumbhole at an auction today. $27.50 for about 12 saws. Two which were these Disston and one smaller one had a Warranted Superior button (not pictured). I took these three saws, filtered through the rest and a lady (the one who bid me up) bought the rest of them from me for $3 (I didn’t want the rest of the garbage). They are pretty rough shape. The one with the painted handle has a decent etching under the rust yet. From the website http://www...

Woodworking For A Good Cause

1646 days ago by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

My wife, Rita, manages a daily program that keeps adults with developmental disabilities busy. She works personally with these individuals and we see first hand how this program enriches the lives of the participants and their families. Most of them are affected by down syndrome. We choose to support this program every year with donations for the fundraising auction. This year I donated the red bamboo sofa table. This was originally made with the intention of it being a donation. ...

1497 days ago by Jonathan | 13 comments »

My wife will be traveling out to San Diego in the middle of November to participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure walk. In order to be an entrant, she has to raise several thousand dollars through donations. One of her coworkers is planning a fundraising event to be held at a local restaurant sometime next month. There will be an auction at the event, with all the proceeds going directly to the walkathon. I would like to build a few things that can be auctioned-off to help ra...

a day at the woodworking auction

2648 days ago by dennis mitchell | 10 comments »

About 10 or 11, I got my first “real” job. My grandfather had an auction house. All types of strange and wonderful objects passed through there. Lots of strange and wonderful people found their way their too. I was always on the end of a sofa or moving a box. I did a mans work…well kinda. I have pretty much stayed away from auctions most my life simply because I don’t need more junk. Today I made an exception. A local cabinet maker was “downsizing”. I was h...
