In this you-tube Video https://youtu.be/noTv8vTeENM, I explore the question, “How to sharpen a new chisel? I understand that there are many different strategies for this task but as a novice creating this video allowed me to focus on the keys points. The process that is demonstrated is broken down into three phases. First: An Oil Stone is used and can be found for about twenty dollars on Amazon as “Stanley 16-050 Sharpening System.” The stone itself must first be flattened and to do t...
Hi all I have purchased some beautiful Red Cedar and am going to try my hand at some larger joinery work. It is really lovely timber and was a very good price as the timber yard sadly is closing. This was a bundelled mixture of boards and pieces; The main piece for the top of the unit The larger boards I have cut in half and put through the thicknesser to get some lovely bookmatched boards to work with; I have sized four pieces for the legs and marked out the sha...
This morning I started out with this mahogany scrap: From which I had decided to try and make two mallets, why I hadn’t made them before I don’t know, I have tried everywhere to buy one down here, they just don’t sell them, they use their hammer, so I had imported a beech one from Amazon, which including taxes cost me $34 / £24, twice the listed price. I started off by cutting the handles on the bandsaw, as this would determine the size of the holes in the heads. ...
Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors. As always, I welcome your questions and commen...
Here is a video I just finished on Center Keyed Box Joints. One of the harder things about box joints is getting an equal sized key on both the top and the bottom. Here I show how to get equal sized keys regardless of the height of your board or the width of your dado stack. It is a really cool way to do the joints and the result is as decorative as it is functional.

Hi, I’m a Swedish part time cabinetmaker. This is the first time I can present a “proper” documentation of a project. Enjoy :) https://youtu.be/-RKHqrMsfjY
I’m just getting this blog post started so it already set up, but in the next 6 months I should have everything up and running for me to build wooden boats for people. I’ll be starting out with some strip built kayaks and canoes most likely. In all actuality I have no idea what people are going to want. I plan on just getting the word out and let people come to me so we can sit down and draw up exactly what they want. After I’ve got a good thing going I will start cold moldi...
With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...
I set the tool chest build aside for some time due to work out of town and I needed a table and seating for the table. Now that I got those two projects done I made a simple tool rack for my chisels and backsaws. I laid out a board the length of the chest that’ll be the front and glued blocks between chisels and the saws and ensured they had room to hang and not interrupt each other. Then I planed down oak for the runners and installed same. Then I planed down material to ...
