I have recently embarked on a journey to make hand tools by hand – for the most part. This scratch stock is a design I saw in one of the most recent Shopnotes issues.

Each blade was cut to width and lenth with the help of a cutoff wheel, then they were shaped by hand using a grinder and f...

I offered a couple weeks ago to try to do a tutorial on how to make a coffee cup like this. ...
Here’s another practice version of a “Real Asian Style” table. I tried to use traditional Chinese joinery (or at least what I think would be traditional Chinese joinery). Design is as simple as I could possible think of, not waisted as it really should be, no moldings. Material are a few 2×4’s that probably don’t quite have the right proportions.
