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. ...

Dutch Tool Chest #9: Put a lid on it..

It has been some time since i did any work on my chest. I made a few tills to hold most of my tools, but they need refinement and will be covered in a later post. Been storing my tools and working out of the chest since last blog entry though. The other day i was cleaning up shop before i left for work. Been working on house remodeling the last couple weeks using the dust creating tools frequently, tsaw, mitersaw, router, sander, etc. Lots of dust to clean off, a whole lot of it settling...

Tool Picking #17: This Craftsman Followed Me Home

06-07-2015 01:14 AM by TrBlu | 7 comments »

We took advantage of a beautiful day to take a family outing and hit up a couple estate sales in our area. I found this vintage Craftsman 10-drawer tool chest in an out building. Emptied the tools and household repair parts out. Found the key in the top section. And loaded this beaut into the trunk of my car. Even empty this thing is heavy. Decided to start cleaning. The original owner used Naugahyde for drawer liners and most were still in the drawers. The worst part about the ...

Tool Chest Restoration

05-05-2015 08:48 PM by ChuckV | 13 comments »

A few months ago, I started volunteering at our town’s historical society. Shortly before that, a large tool chest filled with wooden planes was “rediscovered” in a storage room. The planes, some 60 in all, were mostly manufactured between 1830 and 1850. Another volunteer and I prepared the planes for display in the historical society’s museum. The chest itself was in pretty bad shape and had become a home and food source for rodents. But, the wonderful construc...
