Japanese Toolbox Build #2: Mortising, slow going

96 days ago by siavosh | 9 comments »

I double checked the layout this morning, fixed them. then decided to tweek the size of the dovetails to be more safe and reduce the risk of splitting. Then I set about mortising. One of my biggest limitations in woodworking in an apartment is not being an obnoxious neighbor and banging on a chisel all day with folks trying to enjoy their weekend below you. So I went ahead and used my brace and bit to remove some of the waste, but at the end of the day you gotta bang on those chisels. I ended...

Japanese Toolbox Build #1: Design, Milling and Layout

97 days ago by siavosh | 3 comments »

This project has been a long time coming. Since I got the woodworking bug over a year ago, one of the projects I’ve been thinking about has been a traditional Japanese style toolbox for my growing set of tools. I got the wood for the project from a professional woodworker selling his off-cuts almost a year ago in anticipation of this project. But time, and the growing sense of “don’t mess it up” led to constant excuses for not starting. Since my last woodworking class ...

Fresh Start #1: Beginning with a Bench

342 days ago by Ed_Wilcox | 3 comments »

Now that I am finally settled in to our new home near Fort Hood, Texas, the wife has allotted me a small portion of the garage to be used as my workshop. Thanks to my latest birth/anniversary day, I have also added several new tools to help the beginning process. The table saw will still have to wait. Instead I have a new circular saw, a router, orbital sander, and a few other gizmos to accessorize. Anyway, the first project I intend to get started on will be making a few clamps to assist ...

Tool Restorations #7: ToolBox Restoration

636 days ago by BigFoot Products Canada | 7 comments »

I recently purchased a Snap-On KR-56 6 drawer tool chest to restore just for fun.Pictured here are the before and after pictures.. I used Electrolosis to strip it down to bare metal. I had never used that method beforeand I’m totally blown away at how efficient it is. I built the unit using Carbon Plates instead of metal.There is hardley no mess at all..Has anyone else tried Electrolosis? Anyhow here’s my pictures..

Tugboat's Toolbox #1: Inspired by MaFe's Recycled-wood Toolbox

796 days ago by Tugboat706 | 2 comments »

I’ve been playing with wood for quite a while, but beyond the simple power tools I’d had for a while (scrollsaw, drill, circular saw), I hadn’t really done much, although I’d wanted to. I looked at the shop which has a bunch of random (and some not-so random) power and hand tools. I have stuff I have no idea how to use, that was either given to me, or I’d gotten inexpensively. I knew how to use a bandsaw, although my blade wandered. I have a shaper that a...

897 days ago by theSawdustSurfer | 0 comments »

At last spring! This year’s swedish winter was perhaps not the coldest or the most snowy, but it’s still just as great when spring arrives. For me it’s also about moving my projects and tools to my “Summer” workshop.As some of you know, i have two different workshops.In the winter I have my shop in a tiny basement here in my building in the city, and in the summer i move my shop into the countryside to our countryplace. In my Summer shop I have much more space...

My first drawbored joint

949 days ago by fissionchips | 9 comments »

I tried my hand at drawboring for the first time today, inspired by Peter Follansbee's hearty endorsement (skip to 10:00, and then 20:00 for the impatient). The project in question is a toolbox made from salvaged pine. I was pleased with how the mortised sides turned out, so I didn’t want to spoil the look with fasteners. Enter the drawbore: The perfect solution to cinch up those joints and make the pesky cracks disappear. As for the choice of peg material, split oak is common...

This Week In the Shop #8: Tool Box

1034 days ago by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

The new tool box at work. It’s not a pretty thing, but the design has a long gestation. Chris Schwarz has been promoting his conversion to hand tools for years now – and he finally documents the slow spiral in “The Anarchist’s Tool Chest”. He’s got a book, I guess I have a blog. Either way, I decided on a 24″ by 18″ by 18″ dovetailed box. The moldings and bottoms were nailed and glued on, while the top has a split piano hinge as it’s method of movement. Most of the dovetails are ...
