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...

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

761 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...

The old time woodshop journals #9: Tin cutters and old yankee revival!

772 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well….... a cleaning we still go here at the old time woodshop. The oil and wire wheel spin on and try their best to revive some oldies but goodies. These particular two pieces were from the old tool box I got at the auction a while back, here is the link if you would like to view. http://lumberjocks.com/jjw5858/blog/29741 Some really fine tin cutters and this great old Yankee Screwdriver were in great working shape…...but not so much great looking shape…lol.

Exercises in Artisanship #17: Old fashioned tool tote Part 5 THE FINALE!!

778 days ago by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well I guess through learning and creating, sawing and shaving there were a few more hours to conjureup some additional ideas with my chisel box. Ahhh yes…a lid for the top perhaps??.....this would be a total ad lib affair with little more than just letting the inner kid out to explore and experiment. Every now and then that is such a vital important exercise to have in our woodwork…..be free of worries…the crayons going out of the lines are no artistic sin, only stressfu...

Exercises in Artisanship #16: Old fashioned tool tote Part 4

784 days ago by jjw5858 | 8 comments »

Well friends the day has finally arrived….where I am going to have a decent spot to either carry or hold my stanely chisels….lol. I have had these chisels on one table or another realizing that they needed a proper home in the shop. I thought since I was putting together this traveling tool tote of carpentry instruments….chisels would be well in order for many a task…....so I took a creative chance on making a space for them! Along with that I thought why not a hand...

Exercises in Artisanship #14: Old fashioned tool tote Part 2

791 days ago by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

Hey woodworking friends hope all is well. Took a small break from shop time and recharged the creative batteries this week. Good to be back and to revisit this tool tote project and thought a second blog installment was due to see what progress and ideas were in action. It was nice to get away from things for a small time and allow ideas to regain energy and fascination. I find this can be very helpful in any hobby, profession, or relationship in life…..just let things breathe a litt...

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

806 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...
