Joiner’s Tool Box and Cat Puzzle by jeff gose
Seeing the Light & A Carving. Paul, All, I’ve started this project about the same time as the first posting of your Traveling Tool Box episode. Many technics are new to me and I am grateful of the videos and others comments. One evening working on my raised pannel, with a hand scraper, I noticed what the light reveals – a reassuring view. Thanks for your examples and time. PS. I carved a head/face for a puzzle cat. Reading all’s comments, helped! Later I’ll experiment making my own puzzle with my smaller bandsaw. Jeff

Dollhouse by Papa G.
This is a dollhouse I built for my granddaughter. It’s 1:12 scale. Though not completely made with hand tools, it was the many techniques I learned from watching/reading Paul that helped – from design drawing to measuring to planing to finishing. The carcass is plywood. The siding, windows, trim, and flooring are all reclaimed (pallet) wood. The roof was made from modified craft sticks – all 1500+ pieces! Real homes were roofed in less time! The furniture is store bought, but I’m ready to tackle that next.

Double Doors and Frames for a Timber Frame by DB
Doors morticed and tenoned and double drawbored instead of wedges. Drawbored pin pairs staggered to prevent splitting along the grain. All doors braced too.

Single glazed and linseed oil puttied in place. Joinery all cut by hand: 48 M&Ts in all. 4 doors took as long as a timber frame to make! Now for the windows…
