Thanks Dad.

02-18-2011 06:05 AM by Shawn K. | 8 comments »

This could start as a tool gloat, and really should be, but will eventually become a project. Because I can’t seem to write briefly, succinctly, or other synonyms for short, I’ll just go with it. I’ve mentioned before that my father was the one who inspired me to woodworking. It was something he did to either save money, to make money with restored antiques, or to repair things around the house with a bit of flair thrown in for good measure. Over the years he collect...

Christmas Gift of a Tool From my L/J Friend

12-29-2010 09:45 PM by rivergirl | 17 comments »

GI will take this opportunity to thank my dear friend David for a lovely lovely lovely Christmas gift. David has sent me a Ryobi jigsaw- to help me along in my woodworking struggles. This lovely newfangled device will replace? Or just push aside the VERY ANCIENT craftsman jigsaw that my sister found in the trash in Las Vegas and gave to me. So I am terribly excited and very grateful to my friend! Hugs and kisses to you David! Now I am going to pack up a little box to send to David t...

Machinist Toolbox #10: Wrapping it up - Lee Valley Style

12-29-2010 07:51 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Not much to say, nor anything to show in this post. Just received the locking hardware from Lee Valley which was the last thing I needed to finish this build at this point. I thought about making the locking set myself, but seeing the set LV offers it just didn’t make any sense so I just ordered it from them with the Free Shipping they offer this week. arrived in 2 days and installed today – very nice set, and works like a charm. The set I got is this one: And can be foun...

Machinist Toolbox #2: Milling some Lumber

12-08-2010 10:51 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

I am not sure how much time I’ll have for this project, so I’m taking every moment I can and do baby steps to hopefully drive this thing through. Last night I went and picked up what boards seem to be most fitting for this project that will yield the best materials for the parts. The toolbox is 10” deep, but I did not find anything that wide. the widest I have is 8” so I’ll have to make some glue ups for full width boards. I did get a good selection of mahogan...

Machinist Toolbox #1: Design - Feedback Welcome

12-06-2010 04:38 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I’ve seen machinist toolboxes here and elsewhere a couple of times, but never felt they would be useful for my woodworking needs as they seem to be aimed at organizing smaller items/tools/etc, so I never paid much attention to these boxes. With my recent interest in machining, I find I need a toolbox to hold all my small gauges, tools, keys, wrenches, tooling, measuring devices, etc. A machinist toolbox would be perfect for the job. I’ve looked around, and to be honest- these b...
