I am a high school teacher for 180 days of the year. I teach music and I love doing so. In the summer however I venture out to sea with my family’s business commercial fishing to catch as much squid (Calamari) as possible. I usually spend about 6 days out at sea. When we come back in we turn around and unload as quick as possible and get back out to slam them again.
Being that I have now become completely and utterly addicted to woodworking, I would like to continue it, even in the middle of the Atlantic.
I plan on bringing a small toolbox full of tools. Mind you I can’t bring a table saw, jointer, shaper, panel saw, you know, I have to have everything fit in a smallish plastic tool box. I am going to bring two hand planes, a Japanese saw that can rip and crosscut, a back saw, a 1/4 sheet sander with sandpaper, chisels, a coping saw 4 or 5 clamps.
Whatever other tools you can help me think of would be great. Bear in mind it’s a real fishing vessel, not a luxury sport boat (think deadliest catch), so don’t recommend a beautiful Lie Nielson no 7 plane for 500 dollars (it ain’t gonna happen). I am taking out cheaper tools, pawn shop stuff, just to have fun and practice with.
I want to know what you guys think for smaller projects and tools? Think under 18 inches or so. I know boxes are great, which I will do. What else? I can only take so much wood as well. Just want to know what you guys wood do in a really, really, really, really bare bones situation such as this.
Thanks in advance
