Mysteries from the 116 year old tool box. #1: Timber Framing Tools

03-28-2016 04:52 PM by LanternLightFarm | 1 comment »

Last fall I received a call from my father inquiring if I wanted my great-grandfather’s tool box; all he knew about it was that it was extremely heavy, locked, and had been sitting in the corner as long as he could remember. Jumping at the chance to own a piece of family history I told him I would take it and a few weeks later it arrived to my garage via cargo trailer. Escorted by my father and uncle we managed to unload and extremely heavy trunk that seemed to weigh in the hundreds of ...

Paint box for my daughters artist area.

01-31-2016 10:50 PM by mafe | 15 comments »

Paint boxfor my daughters artist area This Christmas I gave my daughter a easel, she had a specific wish and so I decided that where I could bring her some of me, was in making her a box for all the paint gear. She is quite dedicated, spend many hours in her room painting with a deep focus and in a meditative state of mind.Nothing less than wonderful. I have made her a jewel box at a ealier time and as some of you know I have a soft spot for the Japanese crafts, so I went in that di...

Tool box

02-17-2013 05:23 PM by Boatman53 | 11 comments »

Inspired by that little tool box I posted on the hand tools forum I’ve decided to build a small box of my own. The biggest tool I wanted to fit is my 12” x 18” framing square. The widest tool at the moment (there might be some changes) is the handle of an 8” brace at 3”. So the interior dimensions are 12 1/4” x18 1/4” x 3 1/2” . I have some teak left over from a job about three years ago that is already 1/2” thick so that is the wood IR...

Tool Box #1: Mafe Inspired Japanese Style Tool Box

12-12-2012 02:28 AM by deutschman | 7 comments »

As one of my beginning projects at the boat school I built my self this Norse style tool box. While very beautiful, it just doesn’t function well for me, as everything gets piled up and I have to dig around to find stuff.So I built my self this Japanese style tool box inspired by Mafe here on LJ. Is it as beautiful as his? No. Its made out of scraps laying around the shop, and I built it a bit rough because I know I will use the heck out of it at boat yards and work shops. I like it. I ...

THANK YOU to http://lumberjocks.com/VillageCarpenter – I have driven by the Cloisters a million times, but until I read about it in her blog, I never considered going. workbench in the workshop from the Ephrata Cloister. (pictures go here – but no joy in posting flickr pics, please click the link below) The English Style workbench had no stretchers across the front or back – but on closer inspection, I think I found the mortises where they once were. It̵...

Genuine Rivergirl Footstool and My Genuine Redwing Boots

11-30-2010 04:51 PM by helluvawreck | 22 comments »

My Genuine Redwing boots feel just right when they’re propped up on a Genuine Rivergirl Footstool, especially when it was built for me. :) When I came in from the shop last night I had my wife, Claire, photograph my boots on rivergirl’s footstool and she was delighted to oblige me. So this is what my boots look like when they’re propped up on the stool. :) I thought I would post a few pictures of how rivergirl’s box is coming along so I put them below. ...

Now I have cut dovetails by hand, so it’s time to play with machines again…This time some finger joints, since it’s a learning experience. I bought some years ago a router template for finger joints, and half blind dovetails.I paid 100$ on a sale and never opened the box… So now it was time! I found a 10 mm router bit as the set needed, and made a test cut on some plywood… O...

Rivergirl's Tool Box #1: The Beginning

10-25-2010 09:59 PM by helluvawreck | 30 comments »

Since rivergirl has built me a stool that is exactly the way that I wanted it to look I decided that I would build her a tool box as a way of reciprocating. I love the footstool and I think that she did a fine job on it and the wood and finish is just beautiful. It is as though rivergirl had read my mind about the way that I wanted my stool to look. rivergirl has told me that her stool has some flaws in it but I am sure that her tool box will also have some flaws in it so that is as it should...
