Here are some things i have made and think some people here maybe interested in seeing. My friend has been bugging me to post things on here for a bit so i finally decided to take a few fast photos and post them.
The first thing is a “toolbox” I put it in quotation marks because although it was designed with the idea of using it for tools it really just holds anything and every thing i can manage to force in it. It is made out of red oak and is 20”L x 10”H x 11”D finished with watco’s danish oil. This is also the first time that i had ever cut dovetails and i did it by hand with a crown gents saw and some old trashed buck brother chisels that were last used as demolition chisels before i fixed them up to make them cut wood and not just dent it.
The next thing is a fully functional miniature work bench and set of tools that I made for a sculpture gallery show at school. I guess if you have read this far into this post I will inform you that I am a Bachelor of Fine Arts sculpture student as csulb and I had the work bench and tools shown in the school museum and in a gallery show for the BFA sculpture program. I made the tools and the bench and then used them to make the little dovetailed boxes. The tools are not fake they are real and work rather well even the saw works I used a razor saw for the saw plate so I didn’t have to cut teeth that small. The chisels are 1/4”, 3/16”, and 5/32” made of o1 tool steel, mild steel and walnut and I use then with a normal size mallet.
The only other thing shown in the photos is a smoothing plane i made following photos and general dimensions i had been able to find that related to a kit that was once sold
Well I’m kind of lazy so the photos are not the best but I am a sculpture student using a $600 camera thats got to count for something. I have other things to show when i get around to taking photos of them
