Daryl, I refuse to believe that you made those! No.

Speechless now ...

Daryl, jeez -- I'd feel kinda guilty asking you to sharpen saws now. You are quite a master craftsman! Beautiful work, all of it.

And as I mentioned before absolutely stunning work for those of you who have posted as I keep drooling.

The most important shop tool...









Is it just the lighting, or did you have your wagon vise hand wheel chromed? If so, did it create any fitment issues on the shaft?

Some very talented people here on WoodNet. I find myself coming back to this thread to look at all the eye candy quite often. Still drooling over the chisels that Larry Williams made.




Agreed. I would sign up for the first set made available to the public.

Please make proper chisels available again, Larry. Seriously consider the first set sold if you do it.


Re: Post pics of your homemade tools - Tony Z - 01-03-2014

I would also like to see Larry offer chisels. I would like bare chisels, without handles.

Hi Mike

It's a Benchcrafted, that's the way they built them at the time I bought it. Looks like it's chrome-plated.

No purchased parts in this infill. I machined everything in this one except for a couple of roll pins.

Here are a couple of my recent shop-made tools.

This is a scraper I use for removing finish from plane and saw totes. It was made from a rusty old babbitt scraper.




This one is a chisel mallet made from bronze with birdseye maple handle.




I borrowed this picture from Gregory of Sherwood Forest since I forgot to take some photos before shipping it off. This hammer was made from an old chunk of brass hex stock and fitted with a hand-carved hickory handle.

BaileyNo5,

I will respectfully have to disagree... The most important tool in the shop would have to be the coffee cup - without it you would not be able to hold the coffee....
