Be sure to catch Aime's book, Getting Started in Woodworking, for even more skill building projects. It's been more than 20Yrs since i have done woodwork at school i am afraid i can not remember what basic tools to have to start again with woodwork. Layout Tools: 2 Panel Gauges, Scratch Awl, Dovetail Marker, Miter Paring Block, Center Finder, End MillSo as I was cleaning up my shop in preparation for my upcoming remodel, I was a bit shocked at just how many tools I have that I have made myself. I’ve made 6 saws, 3 chisels, several striking knives, wooden squares, tool chest, workbench with accessories and so on. I recently took a class with a blacksmith because I wanted to make the handles for my new tool chest.


During almost every project I find myself either improving a shopmade tool I have or making a new one.
So if you have a moment tonight, swing by The Hand Tool School Demo Page, member or not, all are welcome.
Although there are router bits and scratch stocks available for beading, this simplified method from Aime Ontario Fraser's book, Getting Started in Woodworking, is fast and effective. They’re originally intended for knife making, which matches chisels and tool blades perfectly. It allows me to know if i have a problem and dont have a simple solution for i can figure it out on my own. As per a member suggestion I’m going to work through the Gottshall Block exercise that Bob Lang at Popular Woodworking has reinvigorated.


But as Abiel just said, there is nothing more satisfying than building something using tools that you’ve made yourself. It just so happens that a side benefit is that when I make my own tools or rehab severly abused ones I end up understanding its function way better than if I had bought a fancy schmancy perfectly tuned new tool. It took me just a few minutes to saw to rough size then I shot all four edges on my shooting board. And there’s nothing as comfortable as a saw you made specifically to fit your own hand.
