Roy Underhill style Maul / Mallet - Black Walnut #2: Taking Shape.

129 days ago by jordanp | 6 comments »

When i mentioned to my brother that i needed him to cut stuff with his chainsaw he came right over.. Keep in mind this wood is very very green. I sealed the endgrain to prevent checking.I used a draw knife to strip the bark off two thirds of the log before we started on the next step. He was so intrigued with the project he wanted one of is own as well, so I set him aside a log as well. I clamped the log down to some gluelam slabs I had outfront. We cut across the grain a...

Re-handling a Framing Hammer

160 days ago by summerfi | 4 comments »

This old framing hammer is in need of a new handle. I’ll make one out of the hickory board it’s lying on. I’ve cut out the blank for the new handle. Here I’ve laid out the exterior outline of the handle and the break points for each curve. I’ve cut out the shape of two sides of the handle on the bandsaw. I saved the cutouts and taped them back on so I have lines to cut out the other two sides. Here is the blank after sawing has ...

Reclaimed Glory #6: Breaking down a hardwood pallet - (Rubberwood?)

231 days ago by palaswood | 10 comments »

The other night I spied with my little wood-crazed eyes, a pallet with exceptional color and figure that is the same wood as I had salvaged from a disassembled dolly of sorts in topic: What species is this?? Wood Identification help Here is what i saw that piqued my interest: So I went shopping the following day on my lunch break to that big orange Home Center, and came away with some great tools for breaking down this pallet. (reviews forthcoming, they all performed awesomely) ...

Small Brass Hammers #1: The Prototype

347 days ago by Luke | 8 comments »

I’ve decided to try out this video thing. This is my first and it is very basic. It just shows my intent with making these small brass hammers. These will be used for adjusting plane blades mainly. I may add a wood side on one end at a later date. Hope this comes out okay cause I plan to do many more. Thanks for watching. http://youtu.be/Q8mmU9ZFbPc

I love anything I can do with my hands. Pottery, glass work, automotive work, carpentry, cooking, brewing beer… you get the idea. I love to learn and share. I a...

Cleaning great-grandpa's tools...

497 days ago by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

I decided to try my hand today at cleaning my great-grandfather Herbie's tools that my dad donated to the shop around Halloween. As you can see they’re pretty rusted and well used. The hammer is clearly missing a handle and the two chisels definitely need new handles (one is broken off in the cone, the other has it’s handle but that thing is so dry rotted it hardly weighs anything). After some research on the internet I found a couple home-remedy ideas (I don’t have t...

Family tools and my first tool gloat!

518 days ago by RaggedKerf | 4 comments »

Just before we left on our trip, my parents came up from Florida to visit in the last week in October. With them, besides lots of laughs and smiles and good times with the grandkids, they brought me some of my Dad’s tools that had been collecting dust down in the sunshine state. He decided that since he wasn’t really doing anything with them, he’d rather see them in my shop making sawdust rather than collecting dust. Who am I to argue with the wisdom of my father? Espe...

Cheapskate Plane Adjusting Mallet

809 days ago by Brit | 14 comments »

So there I was killing some time on a wintery Sunday afternoon by surfing ebay when SWMBO said: ”Will you go to the supermarket to pick up a chicken and some fresh vegetables for dinner?” Reluctantly I agreed. Now I don’t know about you, but I hate supermarkets. Personally, when it comes to food shopping, I’m a quick in and out kind of guy. I know what I want and where it is. I fill my basket double quick time and heaven help anyone who gets in my way. So after ente...

Hand Tools: Thrift Stores, Hock Shops and Garage Sale acquisitions #3: Screwdrivers, Nutdrivers and Handley Things

1092 days ago by Lee Barker | 1 comment »

Here’s where your knowledge of quality can really work in your favor. Most (used goods) stores dump all these together and put a single price on them. I look for Craftsman, XceLite and other name brand nutdrivers; I don’t trust the cheapies. The long shank black handled screwdriver uses 1” tips which can store under the white cap. I have a Snap-On one just like this (only shorter shank) which was given me new in 1966. This is a Cleco brand, but dead solid identical....
