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. :)

    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.

  4. 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!

  6. Old handplane, old tourches, refinished chair Updated

    The handplane and torches were my grandpa's just cannot let go of helps bring back memories. The chair was my wifes grandmothers had about 20 coats of paint on it and all the joint were failing. So stripped it down cleaned up all the old glue. Re glued and finishes. My wife loves it and her sister gave a threat of theft.

  7. 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...

    • Thanks Wood, ya it's turning out to be a pretty good little shop. I sold a bunch of big stuff last summer, and I have been on a downsize kick still. I am trying to get down to only what I need, and use, I am not a collector, so I really want to get to the point where whatever I have, I need. For awhile there I was a collector, it actually feels liberating to of gotten rid of so much.
       
      Wood, that Shopsmith has really proven to be a great machine for me. Thanks to @Gene Howe for recommending me to the Shopsmith. If you are still in the market, these can be had for a few hundred plus. The one I have, I have seen for as low as 750.00 bucks, or even lower, I paid more than that, and the price I paid was still a good deal, fair.
       
      The Shopsmith is not for everyone, you really have to think about the machine before you take the plunge, some folks will either hate it, or love it, I am in the love camp.
       
      Here is my Shopsmith in Table Saw mode, I also have a jointer and a bandsaw for it, laying off the side.
       
    • That looks like the perfect do it all woodworking shop! Love the shopsmith, if I had the money that what I would have probably gotten. I’ve heard people saying they have seen some of the early models from the 1950’s that are still running. Now that’s a quality built machine!
    • Al, that ol stool came from a dear friends home, I used to get my hair cut as a child on that stool. Our friends have long passed, but I have fond memories of hair cuts and adult cocktail parties at that home near the beach. I like it too! Wicker back, wicker seat with a rope weaved cushion.
    • I like that stool with the back rest near the lathe.
    • Outstanding.  Sorry had to use another word other than awesome, everyone else used it already.
