So, for all my box making buddies out there, I thought this video I just found today would really speak to you, especially the hand tool purists. This Japanese woodworker steps you through his build from beginning to end, and it’s a fascinating look into some really interesting techniques and some amazing hand tool woodworking skill. Enjoy!

Starting to tackle the base of the guitar stand. The piece of walnut came from the firewood pile. This is a recurring role for this piece as it is the one I used in the video checking out the 6” Bosch 1250 DEVS sander. But since you’re subscribed, you know that, right?...lol. View on YouTube

Three drawer hall cerdenza #2: Determining how to detail the legs

03-04-2018 09:54 PM by Oldtool | 9 comments »

For the better part of the last two weeks I’ve been attempting to determine how to apply a bead & set-back plane to the front legs, to look something like this: My first thought was to create the side beads the length of the leg, using a simple scratch stock. This proved to be feasible, as shown here: This proved easy when referencing the tool on the side of the practice leg, but then came the semicircular portion I wanted to use. Multiple attempts failed, as follows:First ...

Woodworking Mallet (Carver's Mallet)

03-02-2018 10:23 PM by wrenchhead | 1 comment »

I made these hand made woodworking mallets (Carver’s Mallet) from some leftover maple I cleaned up, laminated, then turned on the lathe. This is a great project for when you only have an hour or two to spend in the wood shop. Nothing better than making my own tools. Thanks for watching! https://youtu.be/dZAOw_frfcI

Large variety of exotic hardwoods and wood working tools. Free for my fellow LJocks

12-27-2017 05:46 AM by kiara583 | 20 comments »

Helped a friend move from large house with fully equipped woodworking shop to a smaller home. The overwhelming task of packing a 3500 sq ft house plus shop was difficult. Ran out of storage room so everything else was to be thrown out. Thought it would be a shame to throw it away so I spent a week hoping someone would appreciate this treasure. Will post more pictures. Turning tools, large dust collector, drill press, saws etcs. Could sell but would rather share. I only have time invested ...
