The Non-Electric Chair #8: The Toolchest (Part 1)

2028 days ago by lethentymill | 1 comment »

“Maybe he was a pattern maker”. Alexander, my oldest son, is an engineer and was looking at the collection of gouge chisels as I put their tray back in the chest. I was wondering why Mr Wake had so many gouge chisels and whether that was a clue to his job. All the tools in this chest are marked “C Wake” but I know nothing else about him, except for what I can guess from the chest and its contents. “You just want to show off your collection of tools, that’s why you’re doing these arti...

Box with hand cut finger joints #1: Making the cut

850 days ago by Sanman | 5 comments »

I decided I was going to get some free wood from a local retail store that had left over pallets laying around. After getting permission, I borrowed a pick-up truck and got a load of pallets home. Trial and error taught me you can not just hammer them apart and expect to have any usable wood. I finally used a handheld circular saw and carefully missed the nails as I disassembled the pallets. I managed to get four small pieces that looked like they could make a box. I cleaned up the edges o...

Router Table #11: Drawer Fronts in Front(s) of the Drawers

1546 days ago by PurpLev | 14 comments »

hand’t got the chance to post this on sunday, but I did get a chance to mill the drawer fronts to thickness, width, and height on sunday, and temporarily install them on the drawers. for lack of materials the drawer fronts came to be 3/8”+ in thickness as opposed to the original plan of 3/4”, but since this is just drawer fronts, I’m not too concern about this. it actually makes it looks a bit more refined and elegant. I do have some alignment issues as the drawe...

Child's Toy Box Chest Seat

974 days ago by jakub76 | 7 comments »

I wanted a chair for my daughter’s cubby house and was looking to buy something 2nd hand. I came across a chunky pine post in my back shed and inspiration struck. I decided I could make a chest that could provide some storage for toys and double as a bench seat – I also wanted to get my head around this mortise and tenon business. I marked everything out and cut all of my tenons then cleaned them up with chisels. All hand tools so far, by necessity. I marked each ...

Card Scraper Version 2

247 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

I decided to make a card scraper out of a thinner material using a handsaw from a yard sale for $1. I can tell a big difference in the flex from the handsaw blade and the table saw blade. I’ll be using both for a bit and seeing which one I like better. Click here for the video on YouTube. And please subscribe. Edit: I can’t embed video on here at the moment, I will keep trying.

Hand Planes #6: Using the Cove Plane

662 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 6 comments »

I have a lot of projects that my wife (HI Nicole!) wants me to do involving wood. Well it never seems like they get done and I feel bad because I want her to be happy. She asked me to make her a little shelf to go over the back of the couch to place picture frames on or what ever else ends up going there. I figured this would be a great chance to practice some of my hand tool skills and see how it goes. I measured out the back of the couch to see what the length should be which was 78″. It is...
