    Hand Tools - Use 'Em

    Hi, new to this forum. Have been working on restoring hand tools and developing skills for a couple of years. Thought you might be interested in a project from last year. These Eleven Grooved Boxes are made, with the exception of preparing the original stock, entirely with hand tools. A big Stanley miter box, planes 4, 5 1/4, 18, two 45s, and a round side 606. Love them all.

    Box Of Fancy Pine

    Starting a new thread...since the Plough Plane is done, and the Shop is cleaned up.... Had started a bit of Pine a while back, before all the clean up started. Resawed a few fancy Pine boards into ~3/8" thickness. Even glued up a couple "slabs" into a fancy grained top panel... Today, in-between a pair of long road trips....I manged to square a few ends, and cut a few pieces to length. Mitresaw? I am the motor for this one. Had to joint a few edges to match each other...couple of boards needed planed to match the thickness of other boards... These are a Stanley #7c and a Millers Falls No. 14....also used a Stanley #4. had four pieces that needed to match for width....and two that needed to match for a glue up. Book-matched. One was almost an 1/8" thicker than the other....WAS. Once they just about matched, time for some glue and clamps.. All that for a bottom panel....got out some toys.. That be an end for the box...things over in the vise are sides. Can never have enough SHARP pencils ( they seem to run away..) and the chisel was a Lay out tool... "X" marks the waste. I saw either on the line, or just on the waste side of the lines. Then that chisel is used to chop out the waste. End panel is also there to set how deep to saw. One end is a tad thinner than the other. I'll do this end, then use the other end panel to layout it's finger joints. Top and bottom panels will get a pine molding to house them. Bottom unit will get attached to the box. Top becomes a lift-off lid. Still debating on the knob/handle thingy That is the "Plan" so far....will see how this goes....stay tuned..

    Benevolant Box

    The pastor of our church asked me a couple of months ago if I would make a Benevolent "collection" Box for the church. Had to wait for the weather to warm up a bit before I could get out to the shop and not loose the feeling in my fingers. It finely warmed up to 40* so I got started on it! I had enough 1/2"BB plywood left over from another project, so that is what I used. I finished cutting all the pieces and took them down to the basement to warm up. Glued and in the clamps over night. Out of the clamps and the hardware installed. Took it over Friday morning to hang at the entrance to the sanctuary.
  4. Well, if you haven't gotten your significant other a Valentine's present by now, I hope you can get comfortable sleeping next to the lathe for the next several days @RustyFN showed us his first turned lidded box and it is gorgeous. Read about it here and check out the comments from our turners- Carl Jacobson turned a floating vase, about a month ago. Notice his use of Easy Wood Tools and the Easy Wood chuck! I think if I hadn't learned to turn, I might have tried my hand at painting. I always marveled at the painters on public television when they created a picture. Although he has passed away, Bob Ross was one I enjoyed. That's probably why I found this Tim Yoder turning video so amusing- Some of you may have an income from your turning. With tax season upon us, I thought this video from Mike Peace may be of interest- Check some of the comments, with the video, on YouTube. Several respondents were folks who worked as tax consultants and they added additional information. Rick turnes added his list of videos for January 2018- The Woodworking Show is going to be in Kansas City, MO this weekend- February 16 and 17. Our most generous sponsor Easy Wood Tools will be there! Check here for additional information- Click on the above image to link to more information. I have been playing with a little holly bowl. The wood came from a tree that was planted, in 1969, at the school where I taught. The tree had been cut back many times over the years due to size a weather damage so none of the trunk pieces were extremely large- although the base near the ground is close to 2 feet across. I turned the bowl green- the outside shape one evening and finished the inside the next day. The wall thickness is about 3/16". There were a couple of stress cracks in the log before I started but they didn't get any larger after completion. The inertia sander I made works great! The pictures are before any finish is applied. I'm using rattle can lacquer but need to get a buffing wheel to smooth the surface of the spray. You can see the bowl went from round to slightly oblong during the process. When it is finished, I'll give it to the school. I still have a couple more chunks and also a holly natural edge bowl but some of the bark split off during the final turning. I also finished up the piece I was turning from Manzanita. It had that large void that I filled with Alumilite. I couldn't get the "bowl" part polished as well as I would have liked. Everything went south when I tried to use Micromesh pads. I guess it was the difference in the density between the wood and acrylic. Also the pads left traces of their color on the wood. I should mention that I did not stabilize the Manzanita. I'm calling this one "Crater" because it reminds me of a volcano. Finally, I guess someone likes my rolling pins. Got this in the mail today- Who a thunk it?? Safe turning

    New box

    Had some scrapes left from doing pew boxes. These are curved and I burned a lot of these before I got this idea. First I sanded the corners for the mitre fit. Then the glueup. And finally the bottom cut and sanded to fit. This will be an open box, so no top.

    A couple more boxes

    Haven't had a lot of time in the shop the past few days but I did get two more boxes done. These are also based on Liam O'neill's "crooked grain box" design. I like the grain in both of these but especially the one on the right. Both spalted beech and walnut. Four more to go for this project but I have the demo for the next meeting, figure I may as well do it on one of these. Steve

    A project in Poplar

    Ok, Vacay is over, time to make a bit of sawdust....maybe. Had a few Poplar boards sitting around, taking up space in the shop.. Not quite all the same sizes...little rough around the edges, too. Bandsaw to remove some of the excess stuff.. Will need a bit more done to these, to make something like this.. Maybe square the ends, thin board for a bottom panel....maybe some dovetails to connect things.... Yes, I do pins first. Just easier for me that way. I had to use the mitre box to square the ends, first. And a #4 plane to smooth the edges. Got out a few toys.. Er..tools. Some for lay out work, some to make sawdust and chips....went to get the shop stool ready to go... Picked it up from one spot, when I set it down, the welds on the legs broke...guess I need a new stool...for now, I have to work standing up....grrr Edges were jointed, before I went too far along...I think.. 1/4mile of wood means a 1/4 mile of plane, don't need those huge planes for this. As for saw work, when I sit down to saw.. I am looking straight ahead, and can follow the lines....when I am standing up, I have to lean over a bit, to see where I am cutting....which makes the saw lean as well...good thing I always cut leaving the lines. Meh....next two sets, I kept a thumb right beside the saw plate, keeping it from any leaning. Got both ends sawn, time to chop a bit I have a 2 x 6 Maple Chopping Block. Chop 1/2 way down, flip over, chop the rest....repeat for the other end. Managed to lay out saw and chop one more set of pins.....then lay out a fourth set.....legs were cramping up...about time to call it a day. Maybe tomorrow, I can get the fourth set done, then layout all the tails, and get those done. Then some grooves made, with the Stanley 45? Stay tuned, I might even try something different for this lid....

    Liam O'neill crooked grain box

    Haven't done one of these for a few years, wife wanted to know could I make some boxes for Christmas presents. Decided to copy liam O'neills "crooked grain box" style. Here is the first one. It's from a piece of spalted beech that surprised me with some nice ambrosia. The contrasting wood is walnut. She wanted them for the grandkids, when I showed here this one, she told me I could make different ones for the grandkids Steve

    15 minute box

    I needed a small box to hold my Breathe-Right strips that I wear at night, since they changed the box not to come apart in the middle any more. Grabbed some scrap wood waiting for the right project (cherry). Cut some miters, grooved along the bottom edge, bottom board with tongues all around, glue it up, had dinner, sanded, and sprayed on two coats of aerosol shellac between TV shows. About 2" tall. I used a favorite trick technique to glue up the box. Get some packing tape and lay it sticky side up next to the table saw fence. Lay down the pieces in order, as tight as you can get them and flush to the fence. Add some Titebond No-Drip, No-Run glue to the joints, rolled it up, checked for square.

  13. Trying to get a drawer box together today. My dovetail jig is so frustratingly complex, I'm ready to toss it. Finally figured it out with the help of the manual, class notes, personal notes based on the three days it took me to figure it out. So I decided, what the heck, I should just brush off and hand cut the dovetails. Figured out the dimensions and got the wood cut. Got all 4 corners done (last one went a lot faster and better than the first). Then I realized I did not allow enough height allowance. No problem, trim 1/8" off the top and bottom of each side. D'oh, er, just sawed off the orientation marks. Ok, there's only 2n ways they can go. Sat down and got that recalculated. Glued and squared them up. Then realized they were going to be too wide as I'd measured the wrong clearance. Oh well, I got some hand-cutting practice in. Time to hang up the apron for the day.

    Magnolia box

    From the album: Hollow Forms

    Box is a spare fragment of magnolia I had to do something with and is only 4 inches tall. The top is yellow-hart with a finial of Brazilian ebony. That piece of ebony I think was the hardest I have ever turned.

  17. I ran across a picture of this box my wife took to the craft fair last Nov. I don't even remember much about it for when it left here it was still not put together for the lacquer was still wet. Usually I sit and think what I should do to the next one I build for things can't be a repeat. Different color, different shape, anything, just so the next project is an improvement from the last. So I hung a picture of it in the shop as a reminder and that decided me do more easier things in the future. Just drawing this box up with the french curve set took many days of lines being erased and new lines added plus all the while the size of it was getting way too big for the scroll saw to handle... Kinda like a person should never go to the grocery store when they are hungry. Many small items later and as you are loading things in the car the receipt falls out and you realize, oh my, what have I done!!!! They don't make loans that big anymore!! Lots of my patterns I file away won't even fit in our small house......This thing went straight from my work bench, table saw extension, to the craft fair. Usually I nit pick things to death for a while before anymore before I take things out the door.. Its been raining the last few days so the reason I been going through some pictures and planing something!

    More boxes

    Made for my grand-daughters Wormy soft maple sides, walnut tops, splined miter corners
  19. My day job as a Land Surveyor takes my crew and I to many interesting locations around our county. From hiking treks up mountains while laden down with survey gear to re-establish a lost section corner or township line, to building roads and bridges, we do it all. But, I get to do something that the other surveyors don't! I get to work the wood when called upon! Every few years we get some new crew trucks in and I am the guy who gets the job of building the storage boxes that go into the trucks. The boxes house our gear, from leveling rods, to metal pipe locators, to tripods, to lath and hubs and various other ground implements such as shovels, impact bars, machete's and much more. This past month our department became the proud owners of several very nice GMC 3500 crew cabs. These are the nicest trucks we have ever had, this is the first time we have power mirrors, power windows, power door locks, and cruise control, and there is a view panel in the middle of the dash console that displays backup camera, and we can even link up our smart phones to receive hands-free calls, and if you really wanted to you could activate your music playlist on your smartphone, but we'll stay away from that as music is a personal thing and not every crew member likes the musical taste of the other guy. But as crew chief I do choose the radio station, and typically I'll listen to talk radio. It is what it is, perhaps the younger guys will learn something. So this time, being no different than the next, the powers that be sent me home with a crew truck and supplies to build the first box. I have two more trucks to do. Each box takes a day, from 6am to 4:30pm. Our standard work day, and it just so happens that is how long it takes to fabricate one of these boxes. One of three new GMC 3500 4 x 4 Next few images are just some quick shots I took of the box in build state and finish. Every piece of the box is interlocked with 3/4" dado's using a PC 690 with a 3/4" straight bit. For all the boxes I have built in the past, I always used my PC 7518 for this process, but for some reason I just grabbed the smaller guy, I guess I didn't feel like moving around the 7518 all day, although the 7518 goes through this like butter, the 690 does strain and holler a tad. The box is set in place. I know I skipped a few process's before I got to this, but time being an issue, I had to work fast, and I could not really get as many images as I wanted too. The edge facing is 3/4" oak to protect the ply edges from bangs and bumps. The top section has some 4" PVC tubes, the right tube along with the wood half circle cutouts will hold our various leveling and transit rods. The two PVC tubes on the left house our diamond shaped "Survey Crew Ahead" traffic signs when rolled up, and the space in between those tubes house the standards the signs set on. The lower wide cubbie houses a drawer that holds our 2' lath, 4' lath, and various sized wooden hubs for construction staking, and also our monument pipes for setting legal corners and "Right of Way" and road "Centerline" positions. The metal shop at our yard fabricated those traffic cone racks you see mounted on the outside rear, the black spindles, we stack 10ea. 24" tall cones on each side for traffic control situations. Now you can see the drawer that I built as well, you'll see the right front side is shorter, for the 2' lathe, and the front left, is longer, for the 4' lath. And behind those compartments will house the hubs and pipe. The drawer is on wheels, it slides wonderfully in and out. What you don't see in this picture is the gate latch I installed as the last thing I did. The gate latch is mounted to the outside left of the drawer face, and it latches to the left into the truck box body, this prevents the box from sliding forward and back during travel. The truck bed is a standard 8' long by 4' wide, the box is 6.5' long, we need space to the rear to set a jack hammer into that we use on occasion to dig up monuments in asphalt. We get new trucks rarely, the last time we got a new truck was in 2010. We really use our trucks, I believe the formula used is replacement after 150,000 miles, after that they become more expensive to maintain then to just purchase a new one. And believe me after 150,000 miles, they are beat. We use them in 4x4 very frequently and they get bounced, whacked, and marred up pretty good, as we travel down tight areas and even between tree lined streams, they get beat up pretty good. This beautiful truck will look old in two years. My Crew Truck is a 2010 Ford outfitted the same as this one, my truck still has some miles to go before it's replaced, but it sure is good to see some new trucks for our crew chiefs, there is nothing like a brand new crew truck to lift the spirits of the men. Thanks for looking!

    Butternut & Walnut.....

    .....Always go good together,.....
  21. The recent discussion about boxes reminded me of a technique for getting a grain flow around all 4 corners of a box. If you just cut sequential sides, you will get a match on only three corners. If you have some really figured grain, this method will show an even flow around each corner. Technique Pick a board that's at least as long as the distance across the front and one side, plus a little for joints and cuts. Re-saw the piece down the middle and open up like a book. You will now have two boards where A & B edges are matching side grain (mirror images). Pick whichever you like for the top and bottom edge. +----------------------------------------------+ | a | | b | <-- inside face +----------------------------------------------+ +----------------------------------------------+ | b | <-- inside face | | a | +----------------------------------------------+ Cut the pieces as shown +-----------------^ up------------------------+ | Front | Right | | | side | +----------------------------------------------+ +----------------------------------------------+ | Left | Back | | side | | +-------------- v up ------------------------+ You will now have grain flowing seamlessly around all 4 corners.

    Box of Pine project, a PIP

    Once I got the hardware installed, and some NEW batteries in the camera.... Inside view, showing the lip. I try to pick plywood to show the best grain. Plain jane stuff just is so....plain.. This is the end with the repair. Look right under that center knot... And the other end. Finish will get a rub down tomorrow...sometime... Front view. The hinges are around back... Tiny things, too. Not sure what will go inside this little box..yet. Might be too fancy for a tool box?
  23. If you want to make a self-centering box lid, you can always add a liner to the bottom that is slightly higher than the bottom, then it will lock to top in place. There is another way Make a groove on the inside, about 1/2 way thru the sides. Assemble the box Cut off the top, just below the inside cut. Save a piece of side scrap to help locate depth and fence distance. The bottom will lock the top in place Lid Inside +------------+ Outside | | +-----+ | Cut first --> xxxxx| | +-----+-----| | |xxxxx <-- cut after assembly | +-----+ | | | | | | | | +------------+

    box lids

    Another box making technique: If you are making a box with a lid, the best way to do this is to make a six-sided box (cube) and saw the top off. This results in two things: grain match between lid and base guaranteed alignment, even is the box is slightly out of square and dimensions are the same The problem is when you cut your box off on a table saw, the last cut is prone to pinching as the other three cuts close up a bit. Solution: When gluing up the box temporarily glue up a piece of scrap or two on the inside surface. spanning the cut line. Hot glue or double-sided carpet tape work, as will hot hide glue. When you cut the sides, set the depth of cut to cut through the sides, but not all the way through the scrap. This will hold the lid in position while you make all four cuts. Once done, take a small hand saw and saw off the remaining depth of scrap, open the box and remove the scrap pieces.
  25. So everything with this was a first time for me. I need ALOT of practice lol. Im a perfectionist so i see every little flaw but pretty happy with how it turned out and first satin ive ever bought or done...........do you guys smell that???? Mmmmmmmmm donuts........
