I’m not sure why, I guess just because its there, but I’ve restore a lot of wood bodied jointers and always wanted to build one. I had some reclaimed oak that fit the bill fine.

Thickness Sander from an 8 x 4 sheet of plywood

477 days ago by JR45 | 15 comments »

The first coat is black. I apply the dye liberally inside and out. I then wipe the outside with a...

771 days ago by mafe | 29 comments »

Japanese toolbox大工の道具箱 I have been looking forward for a while to make this blog, this because the result is one of my favorite woodworking projects, it was like a sum of skills leaned and also a design and history challenge that I enjoyed.The result is something I am proud of and that I think will stay with me for as long as I live. At first I made this small one out of trash wood in Paris, meant for chisels. Later another as a gift for a friend http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/2501...
