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 ...
One of the things that inspired me to make a belt sander was seeing YouTube videos of the Sorby Proedge™ Sharpening system. I struggled with getting consistent edges on my lathe tools and had messed up one of my bowl gouges more than once. I knew that I would not be able to get good results on my lathe unless I got better at sharpening and if it wasn’t quick, easy and repeatable, I would wait longer than I should to freshen the edges. The Sorby Proedge™ system is crazy e...
The other day my brother gave me a call, asking if I wanted to build something for his shop. He owns a Cigar shop in Whitecourt Alberta called Cheap Smokes and Cigars. It’s a really cool shop, very classy and nostalgic, they have the basic inventory of cigarettes which they sell cheaper than any gas station or grocery store can offer, but beyond that they have an array of humidors (My creations will soon be joining this inventory), Pipes, Tobacco, Vaporisers and a massive walk in humido...
So after talking to the owner of the salvage store for a little while he let me go down and pick the basement where all of the items from his estate buy outs go before they put them on the sales floor. I was floored with the amount of stuff that he had down there. Picture a room the size of a football field filled with boxes, trunks, shelves and crates FILLED with amazing stuff. I picked for about 2 hours and found everything we like from vintage, rare Stanley #18 Sweetheart plane, a Stanley ...
Had to run to the jobs site today to make sure one of the subs had everything he needed (of course he didn’t , but hey, he works 14 hour days on Sunday’s!)Anyway on the way back home I saw a little yard sale going on so I pulled up and found this gem of a hand saw, pretty damn rare and one I don’t have! It’s a Harvey W. Peace Brooklyn New York with the 1887 Patent Date! It’s in pretty good shape too! And if you guys read my stupid blog you know I am a...
So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...
This is the method I use whenever I have to sharpen my hand planes, chisels, and knives. View on YouTube
This is the start of a build for an end table. It will have curved front doors, a curved drawer, and the doors and drawer will have a book matched veneer. In this video, I start by pattern routing the front pieces, and then work on the case construction and the solid cherry book matched side panels. The case is put together with all mortise and tenon joinery, and even a few blind dovetails. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’ve got going on in...
