Hand Tools


Image Uploading Suggestions

We appreciate your help in keeping our image gallery orderly and easy for others to research.

Please consider these suggestions while uploading your images.

 

  • Name your images before uploading to our gallery, the generic camera file names just look so messy. "Walnut Desk" looks so much better than "DSC19467je69.jpg". You can also name your images after you upload them to our gallery for your convenience.
  • After uploading your images, please consider adding a description so your viewers know what they are seeing and the wood used, the tools used, or even your inspiration for building the project.
  • Please consider tagging your images so our members and guests will be able to successfully search for your image and related images. Tags can be inserted into the "Tags" field. An example of tags and their names should be related to your project. If your project images are of a Walnut Desk with dovetail joinery, than tag the image with "Walnut", "Desk", "Dovetail" etc.

 

Thank you for your cooperation. :)

  2. Night Stand Updated

    22" tall 14" wide 18" long
    I had some #2 pine, furring 1x2s
    and 2x4 so I hand planed 1x2s and put them together like a cutting board
    Cut the legs out of 2x4 did a half round using spokeshave
    Used Amber Shellac on top then 4 coats clear Shellac over all
    Good news on wood situation though we have a good size Amish community around the area they will mill any diminsion wood any species requested for a really good price so I am elated The shop is moving forward as well so life is good
    Hope everyone is doing well Next project is Hard Maple already on hand or the boss says siding the rest of the house
    so I'm praying for a rainy spell lol

  8. Hultman Leather Tool Accessories Updated

    This gallery is a photo montage of leather sheathes created by Leather and Woodworker Kari Hultman. This gallery is a works in progress, the images will be uploaded, then in time captions and hopefully clarified tutorials or explanations will be added.
    Thank you for your patience as we build this album.

    The following commentary is from our friend Kari Hultman.
     
    For the spokeshave and drawknife sheaths, I made it so the blade didn't "bottom out" in the pocket so the cutting edge does not touch leather. For all the sheaths, except the axe, I used very thin leather, like 1/16".
     
    The axe sheath leather is a little thicker than that, maybe 3/32". I used only veg-tanned leather, but in some cases, I stained the outside. The axe sheath has only neatsfoot oil on it. Veg-tanned leather is very stiff, so in order to bend it, you have to get it wet with water first. Let it dry completely before getting it near your metal tools. I was thinking that the rivets and snaps I used had rusted some of the steel on my tools, but it was a reaction between a snap fastener and a brass knurled knob on my spokeshave. I don't know much about metal and interactions between them, but you might want to let your guys know to look into it.
     
    Also, I included a tool rack and tray in the photos. I thought they might come in handy. Much faster to make than ones make of wood.

  10. Big Ash Mallet Updated

    I am on a quest to build some Appalachia style ladder back chairs, or shaker chairs as well, and one of the tools I have been in dire need of is a mallet to strike wood, and chisel with. So after a little bit of research, I came up with my own design, and I had a great time too!
    Thanks for looking at my Big Ash Mallet, and no, the title is not original, it was from a Roy Underhill episode!

  13. Box for a Stanley 45 Updated

    Needed a box to replace the broken old box.   Tried ti duplicate all the details...except the labels.   Poplar 3/8" thick boards, and a bit of plywood.  Hand cut finger joints.   I  think I got pretty close to the original box...

  16. Relax time finally

    Figured I better post something otherwise all you folks would think I was goofing off
    I have actually been rebuilding and installing new Bay windows and siding the house
    We bought this place in July of 2018 so the honey do list not even close to being done
    I got the concrete poured for the new shop I got the okay on from the boss so that is exciting
    She probably just wants to get me further away from the house
    Had some vacation to burn so time to sharpen back up the tools
    Hope everyone is doing well

  18. Swap meet Hand Saw

    My neighbor knows I like the old rusty tools that need a home so he got me 2 hand saws for $5 at a swap meet This one is a little rare Sold by HSB & Co. which I think in early 60's became True value I think is was probably a "Nest Saw" with interchangeable blades I'm guessing 1930's or earlier Not sure what species handle is
    Disston probably made this and put the Ovb (Our very best) logo on it.
