Craftsman-style Tool Carrier: Episode 4

Laying out for the grooves that hold the support rails and marking positions from the assembled carcass reduces the risk of miscuts. Paul explains the importance of minimising mistakes before we disassemble to make the grooves and rebate. The main content in this episode brings focus to making the oak handle. Creating the through-tenoned crossbar and its mortise and tenoned feature handle must be done with total precision, ready for close examination when others see what you’ve made. You will love this part of the project.

    Anyone able to view this video? About 6 seconds in I get a black screen with a hlsjs-lite: Network error. I checked the previous episodes and they still play fine.

      It played fine for me

      Hi Greg,

      Sorry about this. Seems like there is an issue with the 4k quality stream. The player automatically picks the best stream but when it tries to play the 4k one it errors. I will fix it but it will take a few hours to encode a new one. I the meantime you can manually choose the 1080p (or any of the other versions) which should play no problem.

      Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Blood stains on wood – we all get them some time – any hints on how to remove them?

      Paul says:
      Usually I just plane the surface with a super shallow setting on my plane, but you can use baking soda with a little bit of water.

      Kind Regards,

    Household bleach……. but check its reaction on a scrap piece first.

    I found that hydrogen peroxide works on some woods, too.

    I burned through at least 4 attempts at mortising the handle risers before finally getting a good, snug, square fit with the handle tenons. I ended up making a guide for my chisel because the fibers in my oak pieces were crazy, pulling my chisels all over the place!
    There was just no way at my skill level I could just deal with mortising the oak with no guide!
    Now on to rounding the parts, tray assembly, and tray guides!
