    Tyler,

    Luke,

    This may not fit the bill, but one of the suggestions above was the Dutch Tool Chest, although this would probably come under the category of a big tool chest. However, you could build one...

    Greg,

    I can't comment on everything, but will on the Stanley 78 and the Stanley 71.

    On the auction site the sold via auction stuff was a little thin, and that is the source I use to estimate...

    Hi Steven,

    Looks like the woodworking is going well, but resting the legs is important too. (DAMHIKT....I think you and I are about the same vintage.) Thanks for the information on the new...

    Hi All,

    Steven, if I understood your initial post correctly, the original question was whether you NEED all the specialized tools to cut dovetails. I haven't tried to cut dovetails in a long...

    Tom,

    That is a neat story. Tools can tie generations together. Those are a neat keepsake.

    You might want to read my note again, as I went back several times to edit it, and did not finish until about 8:40.

    First I set the tool rest at a 90 degree angle to the stone. Next, I spray the iron with lay out blue, let it dry well, and then use a square and an awl, or something similar, to scribe a 90...

    I have a Stanley 71, but visited with a very good hand tool wood worker maybe a year or more ago as I watched him work. He was cutting a dado with a Stanley 71&1/2. It had a fence of...
