    my first hand tool only project

    Here is my almost (un)finished end table -dry fit assembled. this is my first hand tool only project -that goes for sawing, surfacing, joinery, etc. Well I'll drill the holes to fasten the top to the hidden supports on my drill press, but that's only b/c I don't have a brace (for now). I've...

    saw bench

    A saw bench has been on my list for awhile to further my plunge into neanderthalism. I googled around for versions, before settling on this one. I didn't like the A-frame style I had seen (Schwarz). I was worried that the protruding legs would interfere w/ sawing. I liked this version b/c of...

    WIP-curly maple/walnut dresser

    Here are some WIP photos of a dresser I've been slaving over for the past few (6) months. This is the most hand tool work I've ever put in to a project. Almost all of the joints are hand cut (DT, M/T, rabbets, dados). All the glued up panels, drawer sides and drawer bottoms were flattened by...

    First saw handle

    I picked up this Atkins saw on ebay for a good price. The saw plate was dirty, but dead straight and the horn was broken off, so I decided to try my hand at making a handle (a first). Only electrons wasted were drilling out a starter hole for the inside portion of the grip and drilling the...

    Here's the bed I promised my daughter on her bday (Nov)...I mean Xmas....I mean New Year's (had to wait for a good mattress sale). Though she would have preferred white/pink with flowers, I convinced her that a more natural wood look would be timeless (and I really don't like painting)...

    science of avoiding tear out

    This video link was prompted by a discussion on another forum, and I thought it was just too cool to not pass along. The video demonstrates the influence of cap iron bevel, cap iron set relative to the blade, and cutting depth to tear out when planing against the grain at high magnification...

    Here is my new bookcase -walnut sides and maple shelves. It's about 48" high and 30" wide. The design was inspired by a bookcase plan I saw in fine woodworking. I'm not sure of the name of the joint for the shelves and sides -a housed lap joint? Sorry I forgot to snap a photo before I put it...
