Category Archives: Hand Tool Thursday
It is supposed to be bitter cold this coming weekend. How cold? High temperatures are expected to be somewhere around 16 degrees on Saturday, and 9 degrees on Sunday; lows are expected to be just below zero. Now, we aren’t talking Celsius, we are talking Fahrenheit. It is expected to be so cold that tonight after work I took my waterstones out of the garage and brought them inside the house, and I took out most of my hand tools and wiped them with a light coat of oil. While I was doing that, I decided to photograph those tools, as they are the tools I use most while I woodwork, and because I’ve received several requests to see them. So in honor of Hand Tool Thursday…
Of course I have other hand tools: files and rasps, setting tools, a few other hand saws, measuring tools, and carving chisels. But this represents the lion’s share of tools I would use on most projects. I also have a table saw, a jig saw, and a router(which sees little action anymore). So I hope this offers a glimpse of my set-up, for those who requested to see it at least.
