    Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Comiing home from the Extravaganza, I didn't have any shop time this week until Saturday. So I started with the back and move to the lid next.
    With that complete I can move toward the tool rack and saw tills, hardware and handles. I'm going to use white oak for the handles and the tool tills. I'm still running colors through my head, undecided as of yet. When it's finished I'll be begging for some tools to add to it and it will be raffled off to raise money for the website. I'm having fun. I'll post more later this week.

    Just an idea, Richard, on the color of the toolbox. How about the NCWW colors on the outside of the box and maybe, the NCWW logo on the front?

    I will probably have a saw or two that I can donate to the tool chest. Maybe some other hand tools.

    There's just nothing that can compare to traditional woodcraft to soothe the soul. Thank you for sharing Richard, your demo was unique as nobody demonstrates traditional woodcraft around about anymore. Kudos friend!

    Raymond, I think the color is a good idea, I'm planing on putting one of the bumper stickers and the sticker I got from Colman for the Extraviganza inside the chest much the way I have stickered the inside of mine. I'll tell though the darker color will look good against the white oak.

    Ok, there were three planes pictured in the post. A no.7, a no.48 tunge and groove plane, and a no. 71 router plane. In that order, I hope that answers your question.

    I'll look around and see what I may have to contribute as well.

    Richard, if you get a chance maybe provide some ideas on what you may be looking for for tools or a list if you have it narrowed down.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    I sure will, it'll have to wait until late next week but I sure will put together a list of the tool chest needs. I would like to thank you and everyone in advance for your generosity in this.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    Good morning to all, I'm sorry for not being around much this week, the day job part of my life had a few wrenches to throw at me this past week and it was rather physical as well, so needless to say I'm tired and little sore as well. My whining aside, ill start with some suggestions for tooling up the tool chest. I have a no. 78 rebate plane and a no. 4 smoothing plane to add to this, but we will need joinery saws, a 9 or 10" dovetail saw, a carcase saw 12 to 14" cross cut, a tenon saw 14" filed rip. a couple panel saws 20 to 24 " plate length filed one rip one cross cut. chisels 3 to 4, 1/4", 1/2", 3/4, screw drivers 3 to 4 flat head and Phillips. a brace with a few bit to go with it. a router plane, a jack plane, a joiner plane, and Im sure there are more I can post and I'm certainly not expecting to fulfill the entire list but this is for NCWW and I hope will do some good with in the woodworking community. I can post more later and ill be back in the shop more this week so ill post up dates then. if I do not hear from anyone I'm wishing everyone a happy Thanks Giving.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    I can put together a brace and some bits, and possibly a jack plane. I also have a few block planes if you can use one or two.

    Have to figure out how to get stuff from me to you.

    Re: Picking up where I left off in Hickory with the tool chest build

    I can contribute a dovetail saw and at least one 20-24" saw - not sure if I have both an extra cross-cut and rip but I might. Would it be OK if one of them is a project saw that needs sharpening only - in good shape otherwise? Hopefully all of these would be Disston or derivatives. I'll have to go through my stock.

    I'll also have to figure out how to get these to you.
