Jamies tool cabineta happy monkey in Jamies work shop. As some of you read I spend ten wonderful days in Scotland.Ten days that filled my heart, opened my mind and gave me a deep inner peace.Yes I was with Buddhists, but no, I was not sitting on top of a mountain in Lotus.I was with the most wonderful people, especially Jamie and Shirley who had opened their doors for me.I was meditating and even listening to Zen sounds and smell of heaven.The meditation was done in the morning after break...

Wall-Hanging Plane Till/Hand Tool Cabinet #1: Contemplating and Planning

04-06-2013 05:44 AM by felkadelic | 1 comment »

To put it mildly, disorganization is a bit of an issue in my shop. I have a 2.5 year old and a 6 month old, so my shop time is sporadic and often interrupted. Working in a 1-car garage, I can’t really afford to have clutter. Thus, I decided to build a cabinet for my growing collection of hand planes and tools.

This was a project that I posted a little while ago. The back story is that I live in an apartment about 35 minutes from my parents’ place. I go back and forth between the two if I’m doing extensive work where noise might be an issue (mortising, any power tools, etc). Not liking making a lot of trips to carry handplanes down the stairs, I built this special till to make that easier… I started by using some poplar for the top and sides, and dovetailed them together. ...

refurbishing old tools #9: Work on the till and a tote catastrophe

03-18-2011 03:19 AM by Dave | 23 comments »

First and foremost. This Saturday at our Agriculture Museum there will be a meeting of the Pearl River Woodcarvers guild. I do believe 4 lj’s will be there showing support. That in itself will be fun. And I might even find an old gouge or two. ;)Another cool thing I had a fellow LJ, William, stoped buy this week. He brought me an old #5 fluted craftsman plane. That wiil make another great refurb and user.Now the plane till is coming together. Dry fit went alone fairly well. So I w...
