Gallery Goodness, 8th February 2018

Oh, wow! It has been a bumper month for the photo gallery. Thank you very much for sending them all in! These pictures are a window into a whole world of people with the gumption to get cracking on a project and stick with it until something fantastic emerges. There’s a lot more to see in the galleries and we’ll be collecting up some more of the latest submissions next week.


Dovetail Box by Stellmacher

Dovetail Box by Stellmacher

Small pens and notepad crate As a Christmas present, I made this little box for storing notepads and pens. Actually, I do not have to write much, everything was made by hand and connected with dovetails. There really were no electrical machines involved. The rounded edges on the bottom I made, for example with a Stanley # 4.

Joiner's Mallet by Russell Holland

Joiner’s Mallet by Russell Holland

Yew and ash mallet made for a friend’s birthday. He’d cut the yew about 8 years ago and had a nice knotty piece of trunk left. The ash handle was from firewood he’d cut this winter. This was my second mallet – I am just starting out, but it is a really satisfying project to take from tree to finished object. Thanks for the instruction – it is much appreciated!

  1. Kudos to all, many beautiful items here!
    I am trying to understand the joint in Halkjel’s “Tool Chest”, the one for the separator between the two drawers. Maybe there is no joint, but rather a decoration scribed onto the surface where the divider meets the side panel?
