Design Concepts #1: Custom Stationary Tool Cabinet

11-19-2009 11:44 PM by Unskilled | 0 comments »

I was tempted for a long time to create a tool cabinet like I’ve seen in many books and magazines (Shopnotes’ ‘Heirloom Toolbox’ comes to mind), but wasn’t prepares for such a daunting task immediately since I am a new woodworker. I then decided that I really like my Snap-On knockoff tool cabinet, so I have considered an alternate design to hold a very specific set of tools. So specific in fact, that I plan on french-fitting every tool in every drawer aside fro...

Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

08-05-2013 08:13 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...

Metallurgical Chisel Photos.. After Sharpening

01-08-2008 02:47 AM by YooperCasey | 11 comments »

So for those of you who read my first post, heres the results! I decided to finish this part tonight because I remembered I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled tommorow morning, so I’ll be out of commision for a bit. I spent about 35 minutes with the Veritas Mk2 jig. I started with the 1000 grit side and moved to the 4000 grit side. At the end I’ll post some pictures of the factory finish that came on the chisels. This is the blade edge at 40X, notice that even when cleane...

Workbench Build #35: Endcap Part Deux....

07-26-2013 09:10 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

Now that the wagon vise is sorted out and functioning quite well I might add (am having too much fun with it right now tbh).. Last night after work (1am.. pretty sure my neighbors hate me right now) I decided to go ahead and make the 1” dog for the vise. Fairly straight forward. Sanded the 1” dowel slightly to give it a smooth fit (using the vise to do it no less :D ) Then cut to length, cut an angled notch at the top and then used my 1/4” chisel to cut a grove d...

Restoration Of Table, Completed!!!!!

08-05-2012 06:23 PM by Woodworker_Collins | 11 comments »

When my grandad was a carpenter he worked in Aras an Uachtairain (the irish presidents house), he brought this table home from there one day when he was in his 20’s because it was going to be thrown out, he did some repairs and salvaged it. But after being used for 60 years (which the first governor of ireland wrote on the table) and then being used another 40 years when my grandad got it, it was in pretty bad shape. My granny said i could do what i wanted to do with it, because she had...

Bootstrapping a living-room workbench #1: First cut

04-24-2011 02:56 PM by Damien Pollet | 1 comment »

So there it is, my first serious woordworking project! The plan is to buid a small but sturdy workbench from a laminated wood countertop, not unlike Kenneth's.I can dedicate some permanent room to mine in my living room, so it will probably be a little bigger, heavier and less quickly breakable down. I also intend to put some time into nice joinery and finishing, since it will be a visible piece of furniture, but that will depend on how I manage the big things (this will be my first chisel...
