A Chisel Rack in Cherry

Friday, February 16th, 2018

Organization probably isn’t my strongest attribute in my woodshop but I do give it a solid effort. A lot of the hand tools that I use are stored on my pegboard on my side wall, including my bench chisels. In the past, when I would need a different sized chisel I would have to make trips to the pegboard from my bench. In order to fix this time waster, I decided to make a chisel rack for all of my bench chisels. This way, I could bring my entire set of bench chisels over to my bench in one shot.

The entire chisel rack was made from scrap cherry and didn’t require very much of it. It was designed so that the bevel side of the chisels would be prevented from rocking and would be trapped between two rails. For those rails I decided to use through tenons and I made them 1/8″ proud of the surface where they exit.

The entire project was made using integral tenons, which is a rarity for me. I finished the project with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal which has quickly become my favorite finish.

Garage Woodworks will not be releasing a new video this Friday.

To my fellow American buddies, I hope you have a great Thanksgiving!



A Modern Lamp

Wednesday, March 8th, 2017

I recently completed a lamp from scrap cherry and it was really a lot of fun to build.  The lamp requires very little wood and is relatively easy to build, but it packs a big punch in appeal.  For the lamp cord, I used some left over antique-looking fabric covered cord that I used on a previous lamp build.  The lamp cord is exposed as it travels up to the lamp socket for a cool look.

I plan on releasing the build video on Friday and I’ll also be providing very detailed build plans for a small fee.  Look for both on Friday!
