Make knock-apart shelves, hinges, latches, books, chairs, cabinets, spice containers, doors, desks, and toolboxes using only wood to hold them together. All of the projects pictured in this instructable were designed and made by me using only hand tools. Dowels can be used to connect two boards side to side together to create wider shelves or chair seats (Pic 20)or workbench counter tops.
Pic 45 and 46 show a couple of tool boxes.Pics 47 and 48 show a classic German style clamp I made out of red oak. If you are using a belt sander or hand sanding it is generally better to sand with the grain. That said, the ultimate smoothness on wood is usually achieved using a finely tuned hand plane with a very sharp blade or a hand scraper or a power thickness planer with a new blade.
The precision of your work is impressive and especially so for using hand tools rather than table saws and drill presses.


At the time, my solar-electric powered workshop had not yet been built and I wanted to see if I could learn to use traditional techniques and tools. A random orbital sander ( Like the Makita sander in the picture) sands in all directions but for a very short stroke. This instructable details the techniques and tools I have successfully used over the years to do this.So, rather than just showing a single project, I will demonstrate a system of fairly simple woodworking joints that you can use to create your own wood projects. Since then, I have acquired some very impressive battery powered tools that would have made the process go much faster. I made this bookshelf using only your instructions, a couple of chisels, a mallet, a handsaw and a lot of sandpaper. Was nice to see some examples of how the joints are used rather than just showing how to do them.
Best of all, all the projects featured here can be entirely made with hand tools (although power tools will make it go faster and easier).Woodworking without metal or glue is of course nothing new.


The newer battery powered tools have improved tremendously in power and affordability and I would highly recommend them. You can achieve a very fine finish (good enough for everyone but the ultra purists) using this as the last sander. If you want to build for your children and grandchildren and beyond--you might try using wood-only joinery.Below are a few example of things I have made without glue or metal.
