Plane-making tools box

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Plane-making tools boxI built a box to hold my plane-making tools (floats, brace and bits, and circle templates). It holds all the tools securely, including the box of my gimlet drill bits and nothing rattles around.It's built of 3/4 pine which my sweetie salvaged from some shelves she no longer needed, plus some beech scraps for the dust seal. The hardware is brass from Ace Hardware and set me back less than $20. The box is glued and nailed together, using cut nails from Brooklyn Tool & Craft.The inserts to hold the floats are pieces of a construction grade 2×6 I had laying in the shop. I sawed and chiseled recesses to hold the floats by hand. The floats with their handles to the left cut on the push stroke, and the handles on the right cut on the pull.Finish is linseed oil and a couple coats of shellac. The plane carved in the lid is my first bit of artistic carving. Not great, but not horrible for a first attempt, I guess. The letters on the front are carved and filled with black wood filler.

Portable Assembly Table for B&D Workmate

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Portable Assembly Table for B&D WorkmateThis is my first post to Lumberjocks. I've been a longtime reader and looker, but just never bothered to register. Just thought I'd contribute something rather than just looking at all the amazing projects people post here.I have a list of projects coming up that will greatly benefit from having an assembly table to help keep them square during glue-up (e.g., shop cabinets, picture frames, shadow boxes, etc.). Since I don't really have room to dedicate to a permanent assembly table, I designed this small, portable table to use with a B&D Workmate and made several accessories for it. I'm really happy with how it came out!If you're interested in greater detail, I've included a few videos showing the full construction details below.Part 1. https://youtu.be/Um5kzkli00M (the table)
Part 2. https://youtu.be/AlBStRtlWZU (T-track clamps)
Part 3. https://youtu.be/aYh992zQU0A (dogs and wedges)

Display Rack for Track Medals....with a twist....

Display Rack for Track Medals....with a twist....My daughter had track medals on the mirror, around the bed post, etc. We needed a place to put them. The cool thing about this project is that I took a picture of her crossing the finish line, downloaded the picture into a drawing program, outlined her silhouette, plotted the drawing on an E sized sheet, then traced the the silhouette on some cabinet grade thin plywood. Her silhouette is now part of the design. Recorded in emphany and created a place to store the medals. Holds about 100. Maybe some of you can translate it to other sports as well.
