What I wish I'd known before spending money on woodworking hand tools #3: Time, Money, Experience.

04-19-2011 05:00 PM by Dave Pearce | 8 comments »

Whether you buy new or used woodworking hand tools, is entirely up to you. I didn’t write these blog posts to convince anyone otherwise. I simply wrote about my experiences. Everyone has a different perspective on tools, woodworking, and how they like to spend their time. I agree that tuning up a perfectly good tool from 1910 is a worthwhile endeaver but like everything it has it’s break even point. If it took me a week’s worth of work to do it, (or much more time than I...

My eleven-year-old student finished up his Mother’s Day Box last Thurs. The box has been a three-to-four month process. He’s learned a lot…especially how to fix broken parts. The full design & build process can be found here.

My Main Toobox - Built 14 Years Ago - and My Tools Inside

08-23-2010 10:17 PM by helluvawreck | 17 comments »

Yesterday, I took every tool that was in my main tool chest out of the box and cleaned and vacuumed out the box. While I was at it I laid my tools out on the work bench and cleaned and inspected them and took some of the bigger Stanley planes apart one at a time and cleaned all the parts. The iron in three of the planes needed sharpening so I did that before I reassembled them. I then put a few of the tools and put them in other drawers instead and put some other tools with these because this...

Restoring Woodworking Hand Tools #1: How to Remove Rust from Woodworking Tools

04-29-2014 01:26 PM by WoodAndShop | 6 comments »

By Joshua Farnsworth (Writer at WoodAndShop.com) I’ve tried almost every method to remove rust from metal parts! In the above VIDEO I show my favorite method for removing rust from metal parts – specifically traditional woodworking hand tool parts – but it’ll work for most other metal parts, like auto parts. Click here to read the original blog post with links. But first let me tell you about the other methods that haven’t worked very well for me: -Electrolisys with a car batt...

Homemade Hand Tools

10-12-2010 10:07 PM by Ed Pirnik | 2 comments »

This afternoon I emerged from the shop here at Fine Woodworking after having put together a pretty neat little picture framing jig. It’s designed for cutting precise miters and perfectly matching picture frame sides (meaning it has a stop block set-up meant to cut pairs of picture frame sides to precisely the same length). It’ll be featured in an upcoming video workshop I’m going to be shooting later this month on picture frame moldings and frame assembly. Anyhow, I digress....

Hi friends here we are again back in the shop and making and marking up the next to do’s for this saw till project I have been working on. This project is just what is needed for my fast growing collection of handsaws as you will see…..lol. This is a piece that has brought some more expansion in the learning of joinery, and getting a chance to exercise some new lessons learned. Pic 1-2: I needed to make a pair 1×2 mortice’s on each side for my rail to joint into t...

Hand Tools Odyssey #1: What is Sharp?

09-13-2009 06:12 PM by gizmodyne | 11 comments »

Intro to Hand ToolsThree Saturdays ago, Kristin and I woke up early and headed down to good ol’ Cerritos Community College to start our new class, Woodworking with Hand Tools. Previously we have taken Basic Woodworking, Cabinet Making and a Furniture Lab together. I have also taken table making and a few more lab classes. I have a pretty good grip on basic furniture making and power tool use, but have been frustrated in my use of hand tools. Kristin is not a fan of huge power tools...
