Tool tote travel (a learning travel in tools and techniques)

1293 days ago by mafe | 17 comments »

Tool tote travel – teasera learning travel in tools and techniques Ok, I have talked about this before in the my first dovetails blog…The project is a tool tote, a mix of pine, and a branch from the forest! The challenge for me are to make all the processes, with both power (modern), and hand tools (old), to compare the difference, and to get on a travel in learning, both for my limits, and for what I can do that I thought was not possible.Here comes a few photos of the ...

The project:The project is a tool tote or tool box (many opinions on the name), a mix of some wonderful pine wood boards from an old closet, and a branch from the forest! Here the design I did, a simple but ‘hopefully’ long, slim and elegant too...

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...

Japanese tools #16: Japanese tool tray - for the toolbox. (blog)

656 days ago by mafe | 14 comments »

Japanese tool trayfor the new toolbox To complete the setup for working with Japanese tools I wanted a little tool tray that I could use to hold and carry tools while working, especially to keep the chisels off the ground. I decided it should be made so it could be stored and transported in the toolbox when not in use, that it should be made with the same joinery as the drawer and again no hardware.For the beauty and the joy of the eye I wanted a handle made of a branch like I have on m...

Tool tote travelglue up and details This is second part of the tool tote travel. Time for glue up.Table covered, water, PU glue, brush and gloves. Applying water on the joints, so the glue will work, and expand as wanted.Then the glue, and the rest is a just a puzzle, where you don’t want to use your camera, since you forgot to wear the gloves, and had glue all over… So here we are with clean fingers, and a clamped up tool tote.It’s important that you have remembered t...

Tool Tote for Tyler - #7: Finishing... the tool tote...

701 days ago by Joe Lyddon | 8 comments »

Better late than Never… OK, it’s time for the Finishing part! Finally!! 1. I gave ALL Parts a few coats of BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil as from Home D). This took a little time because I had to wait 2-4 days after each coat to be sure it cured good before putting another coat on them. 2. I wanted to give just the Bottom piece, on the Lettering side, more protection because it would be taking most of the abuse. I have applied several coats of Polyurethane Semi Gloss only...

Along with that I thought why not a hand...
