  1. Planning and organizing my work space, I am going over in my head different ways to build, or not to build, storage for my hand tools. I have gone over in my head a whole bunch of ideas, and one thing I always love to think about is re-purposing old cabinets for my storage solutions. I currently have old kitchen overhead cabinets now, where my finishing supplies and hardware is stored, they were given to me by a buddy at work years ago, and they have served me well. I was looking through local ebay sales in my area for antique cabinets, that I could reconfigure to fit my hand tools, and I came across this old pine cabinet for $285 bucks on Ebay. The lumber would cost that much to build it, and then my time, of which I have very little, it would be nice to just have this cabinet, and retrofit some dividers into it for my hand planes, and shaves and braces etc. I think this would be a really fun project wouldn't it? I could most definitely make this work for my hand tools storage.

    Tiny Turning Gouge Mystery

    I am a self taught turner and have learned by trail and error, videos, books, etc. I have a nice assortment of turning tools and have learned to use all of them to achieve some nice turnings. However the tiny gouge pictured has me baffled. I have tried several times to use it and always end up digging or bending. I'd like to use it to make something but want to do it knowing much better than I do now about how to proceed. Does it require special rules? Things like speed, size of stock or just something that requires patience. A small twist of the wrist can inflict damage. Any advise is appreciated Thanks

    Black Friday buys??

    Guys, does anyone plan on making any Black Friday tool buys? Any great deals to be had? I'm looking for a good palm router, with an led light and great reviews.

    Tool Chest

    IF I can get this camera-ooski to upload a few photos, looks like it might work. Seems I have a duplicate shot. Just a Walnut & Pine Tool Box. Filling up fast, too

    Chisel Tray Complete

    Took a bit today, to assemble the parts, and fit things into the tool chest. Tray turned out a bit wider than needed. Lumber was a bit thicker than needed to be. had to cut a rebate along the tote tray's side, to allow the tray to sit down in the chest. Next time, will use a thinner stock..( and there seems to always be a "next time") Ok, a look or two of the completed tray, all nestled into it's new home I suppose I had better hide than level, before Moody shows up. A view from the other direction I think this chest is getting ....almost full nah, I think i can fit a few more things in there...

    Need a Tray for Some Chisels

    so, back to the Dungeon Shop I go. Have a nice stash of chisels, nothing real fancy, but they need a better home. Already have a spot for the router bits but I don't think it would work to hold chisels. Grabbed a pine board that was long enough to go in the Tool Chest as a tray. It was a might wide so I ripped it down the middle with the old Craftsman circular saw. There are just some things I will not do by hand, and ripping long boards with a handsaw is one of them. Got the two halves into the vise, to take care of any dippity-dos I did both edges, too. That Wards #78 was next. Needed a rebate to house the bottom of the tray. Photo is a might fuzzy( again) but There IS a rebate there. The wood was so smooth, it shone like a beacon. Then, hand sawed for some dados. needed one on each end, and one in the middle. I was going to rebate the bottom of the dividers, but the fights were starting. So, made the floor board the full length, instead. One dado was in some knotty grain, and broke out, screws for that end. Trial fits as i go I WILL get YELLED at for having my "junk" on HER washer. The floor boards are two pieces. The old sycamore one there wasn't quite long enough, and had a bow at one end. Had a thin piece of QSWO available, just a might wide, and too long. Saw the end off, and used a jointer to get to the right width. Did find out something strange about this old oak It makes little curly things, instead of long shavings. I did get the floor for the tray ready for a test fit Just some screws, nails and glue. then come the fun parts, getting a way to set all them chisels in the tray. That will be...next time. Stay tuned.

    Tool Storage

    How do the rest of you store your lathe tools? I am looking for ideas and inspiration. I don't have any more wall space available, so that is not an option. I currently have them on a shelf which rests on the bottom part of my lathe, but that gets to be cumbersome, and I wind up laying my tools on my table saw that is right behind me when I am in the middle of a project. I don't like that either, because it is too easy for them to roll off. Thinking of some kind of a turntable or rack mounted to the end of my lathe, but I also don't want to block the bed in case I want to take the tail stock off and slide something else up there. Rockler has a turntable that caught my eye, but it looks flimsy, and had some less than stellar reviews, but that is the basic direction I am leaning. Ideas and pictures would be greatly appreciated.

    Turning Tool Deflector

    I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.

    Tool Collection/Fetish

    I have a soft spot for awls, ice picks and pin vises. Seems I can't pass one up when I see it at a sale. It does have to be reasonably priced though. If the tip needs replaced in a pin vise I found auto brake spring links can be reworked for use as seen in the upper right corned. The end from a long stemmed spring will work too. Get the Dremmel out, cut it to length, chuck it in the drill and sharpen it on the belt sander. For the Exacto knives the sharp end of a big safety pin works well. I like to use it when trying to get the release paper off the double stick tape. I have one ice pick that is new old stock and has a protective cardboard tube still on it. Here is a couple pictures but there are more I didn't gather from the metal shop out back.

    Tool Transport

    After doing demo last week at the Ag Museum I decided I needed something other than a bucketeer (it is like a tool belt on a 5 gal bucket). Started looking and found a Husky rolling chest to be of the right length for turning tools. Then I can make boxes or buy at HF for small items. I already had used heat gun to form fit PVC to cover the tools. Just wondering what does everyone else use. The one I have linked to is the larger one, I got the 15 gal . same but smaller. I think it is 25 inch diagonal, 21 ling 13 deep. https://screenshots.firefox.com/Obxw2YWbKntgWWZT/www.homedepot.ca

    Did you ever?

    Elvis has an old song, with these words," Did you ever have one of those days when nothing goes right from morning till night? I still have one occasionally, they don't have the serious effect now that I am retired, but still aggravate the heck out of me. I started with an idea about a Christmas tree ornament using the manufactured wood that is layered with contrasting colors. It all went bad after that. I just got started and for some reason my chuck became very stiff. I really don't know why, except that the dust may have gotten in the mechanical moving parts, combined with sloppy splashes of finishes. I disassembled cleaned and lubed with dry teflon spray. At last I am ready to go. NO, a honey dos pop up. Gotter done. Got it set up and bingo, tare out due to a soft place. You can see how this day was going to go and it did. One thing I am is persistent. Thru all the interruptions, miscues, and aggravations.............I remain kinda calm and am determined to make something out of this piece (pieces) Late in the afternoon I have it where I want it and part of it flies off to never never land. I will find the piece and I will take a picture and .......or.......I may throw it as far as I can.

    Square hole cutter

    I was looking at a woodworking new tools article and came up on this. I think it was primarily designed for wall board or soft wood. Clever.

    Hollowing Tools

    I often thought the hollowing tool should have a guide that kept the cutting edge from going too deep to keep from getting catches. This tool looks to be the answer. Here is a video I ran across. Skip to appx. the two and a half minute mark to just see the tool working. Looks interesting.

    Dropped edge scaper tool

    I was going back and forth over scrapers. I thought maybe I really liked a Glenn Lucas negative rake scraper. Then I saw a Kelton tool. It's got a little pivot. I had a Sorby scraper blade. so I made a Kelton type drop edge tool

    whatzit

    A little OT, but I bought a large plastic container at a garage sale for $3. Mainly because it had 4 boxes of coated screws that I use often. Well worth what I paid. Anyway this tool (?) was in it. The black rings are about inch and a half and the thing adjusts with the geared smaller ring. The only hint is that there appears to be some kind of dry black glue/sealant on the black rings. Ideas?

    Chatter tool set

    I just received my chatter tool set from Peach Tree. $50. Others offered the same set and price, I chose free shipping thru Amazon. I tried out each of the 3 cutters, made of spring steel. I immediately noticed how quickly and easily they chattered, as compared to my home made tools. I have a lot of playing to do before I get serious. There is a lot to be learned about speed, angle and pressure applied. https://www.amazon.com/Peachtree-Woodworking-P7305-Browns-Chatter/dp/B00J9SO1AE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1486830281&sr=8-1&keywords=chatter+tool

    Texturing tool

    I was watching a wood turning video on You tube and clicked on a guy using a texturing tool. I have not seen a turned piece that was textured. Can someone tell me about these tools and advise on their use. Thanks
