  • Homemade tools

    I have made a lot of tools that I use and I thought I'd share another tool that is very useful and easy to make.I always wanted to buy a shoulder plane, but this will work... Chisel Plane
    I will be making one soon...

            nothing to do so I decided to get my hands busy... decided I'll make a new handle for my old trusty No.4

            attach the pattern to the wood...

            drill the holes and cut the pattern...

            a little clean-up...

            bukas, it sees the rt for squaring, rounding over and shaping... hope it comes out ok...

                  not definite what it is Moji, all I know is its ironwood...

                  still some more to do with it, but I'm close...

                  always wanted to make one of these, now it needs cleaning and a little tweak.

                  its a depth gauge for the RT and TS...

                    nice looking handle, your going to use shellac on that?

                        not really Jarod, as long as it doesn't get hit or hammered and no shock is applied to it then it should be fine. the feel that shellac brings is really nice to the hands...

                          finally went ahead and made me a mallet, this one out of Munsalagging or whatever it's called.

                          all I know is this wood is so dense that it turns like glass after a cut....

                          stands on either end...

                            Been wanting a branding iron for my work but do not like the price of the ones I see online. With a little help (information wise) from bigfoot, I decided to try making one.
                            got brass bar 1 x 4 x 1/2" and cut down a piece to test.

                            flattened one side where the marks will go.

                            I also bought letter transfers and made a piece, then I realize I need a negative or a reverse letters and decided I will try using tape cut out. using ferric chloride I patiently wait until it was slightly eaten away. with a torch I tried it twice until.

                            one of my racks gets my first mark...

                              Very nice!

                              How long did the ferric chloride eat away that much brass?
