Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #5: Lower Cabinet Design - Tool Packing

11-23-2017 02:59 AM by Bluenote38 | 5 comments »

SktechUp – what a great tool! I can change things much easier, explore design options, and visualize architectures far easier. After a couple false starts a bit of learning on how SketchUp works compared to its big brothers the lower cabinet literally came together. The lower cabinet is expressly to house most of my power tools – the ones I reach for regularly. The multi-tool and biscuit joiner will stay in their respective cases because they just don’t get used much. T...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #4: Thoughts in SketchUp

11-12-2017 09:35 PM by Bluenote38 | 3 comments »

Temps dropped, cold in the shop so refocused to more indoor activities. Friday (November 10th), of course, was the U.S. Marine Corps 242nd Birthday – Semper Fi Brothers past, present, and future, and may we serve 300 more with honor. Did the Vets day thing too on Saturday served breakfast to a host of Korea and Vietnam Vets and some of the few remaining WWII Vets too. I have to say that I met a guy who was on the USN Nautilus. The first nuclear sub and the first to sail under the pola...

Dutch Tool Chest Build-a-long #7: Everything starting to find a home

08-05-2017 07:56 PM by Brian Gulotta | 4 comments »

I have the saw till and dividers finished. Everything is starting to find a home. I plan to put the first coffin smoother I make in the space in the back of the chest beside the #5 (You can see the #5 and open space in the last picture). But first I am going to make some custom holders on each side of the chest for the dividers and squares. This should free up a lot of room on the tool rack for chisels/gouges.

Dutch Tool Chest Build-a-long #1: Intro

02-24-2017 10:36 PM by Brian Gulotta | 0 comments »

I have quickly found out that bringing my tools inside when not in use and piling tools under my workbench was for the birds. I am in desperate need of a nice tool chest to store everything safely and securely when not in use. I also have a personal goal of wanting to work through all the scrap wood I have lying around to learn on and make as many things as I can from. This will also help get the shop much better organized as well. I was able to get through a lot of the construction grade SYP...

Handplane Restoration #32: Stanley #55

02-11-2017 11:00 PM by WayneC | 14 comments »

I’m in the process of putting together a complete set of combination planes. I recently added a Stanley 55 and some accessories to go with it. I have a small tool cabinet that I am adapting to store the planes. If you need a manual for the 55 one can be found here Combination Plane Manuals Note: The Hollow and Rounds are for use on a 45. The fence configuration is different between the 45 and the 55 and they do not fit on the 55. Photos below.

Dutch Toolchest #2: Layout (Sorry this should be First)

06-10-2016 03:32 PM by AnthonyHbm | 5 comments »

For three years I’ve been storing my woodworking tools in cardboard boxes. As I started relatively small, the box held most of my marking, layout and measuring tools. The planes were stored in the boxes they cam in. I knew I needed to build a toolbox eventually, but couldn’t decide which style. I liked FWW's Essential Tool Chest by Michael Pekovich because of its beauty, but I knew it would be too small for my needs. Next I looked at Christopher Schwarz Tool Chest. It was certa...

Dutch Tool Chest #10: some paint for the exterior

09-24-2015 02:33 PM by Tugboater78 | 4 comments »

Took out all the tools, and prepped the chest for some milk paint. Figured I would snap a pic of my dovetails again before I covered them up. First coat of paint, Pitch Black Used a fine mesh scotchbrite pad to smooth it out, wiped down with a damp cloth,waited till it was dry. Onto Second and third coat, Lexington Green Only put 1 coat on the back, left the black bleeding throughBottom also only got green around the borders, figured no real use in another coat on it. ...
