Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #1: Where it starts

07-18-2017 03:21 AM by Tony Ennis | 3 comments »

After a few years of neglect, I recently started bringing my woodshop back to life. So much junk everywhere. I took old power tools, a tackle box full of stuff, and two beat up toolboxes (with some tools) down to the road. These toolboxes had been dropped from my father in-law’s truck 10 times. None of this stuff meant anything to me. That is, a dried up can of plumber’s putty and rusty cast iron fittings hold no sentimental value. Anything at the end of the road is fair gam...

Sliding Lid, Japanese Inspired Toolboxes #1: Preparation

05-03-2017 12:50 PM by FoundSheep | 2 comments »

I’ve been woodworking as a “serious hobbyist” for about a year and a half now. Prior to then I had a few hand power tools and generic hand tools; and these I fit into either the tool bags that came with them or in a cardboard box. But when I started getting more interested, and especially as I started practicing more hand tool specialization, I recognized the need for a better storage system for my better tools. So I upgraded to a large plastic bin. A temporary sol...

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 ...

Japanese Carpentry Tool Box 第 #3: Glue Up - Sides

04-22-2015 04:29 AM by ruddhess | 2 comments »

Finished cutting the mortises and everything fit pretty well. Just had to run the rasp over a couple of the joints to level everything first. Then got the sides all glued up. Diagonal measurements are the same – square overall. This one is coming out better than the first one (so far). Just more pictures of each of the square mortise/tenons.

Japanese Carpentry Tool Box 第 #2: Cutting Mortises & Fitting Up

04-22-2015 02:19 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Marking out the mortises – shallow chisel cuts on outside edges and nail punch the center so forstner bit will center correctly. 3/4” Forstner bit works well. Chopping the corners out with a 3/4” chisel. Works well. Close-up of one mortise at the beginning cuts. Initial fit for the first set of mortises. Pictures of the mortise/tenon fit. Much better (less gaps) than the first box I made recently. Inside corner. Outside corner. One...
