Stanley No 70 Box Scraper late 1800's

Stanley Rule & Level Co.
I picked this up a few years ago and played with it some without doing much to sharpen it. This weekend, I decided to sharpen and hone the blade and see what I could do with it.

Small Mallet - Sycamore and Black & White Ebony

A small mallet for the shop.
After moving, I couldn't find any of my mallets. I needed to tap something into place, and using a steel hammer didn't appeal to me. So I dug up some scraps...

Craftsman Table Saw from the 80's


So I've officially stopped working on the Harbor Freight saw. I picked up this mid-80's Craftsman contractor's saw for $65.

HF 10" Industrial Table Saw Tuning Part 1

Best I could get without modification.
The Harbor Freight 10" 15 Amp Industrial Table Saw is cheap and should be pretty capable. However, it takes some modification to make it right.

The Outdoor Workshop

Working with the lathe on a beautiful sunny day.
 Is it possible to have an outdoor workshop when you live in an apartment?
