Mark Harrell – Bad Axe Tool Works

I’m sure that I’ve blabbed on about Mark and his awesome saws on my blog before, but I’m going to do it again.  All my backsaws are made by Mark except for the old dovetail saw I inherited and he re-plated that one.  He makes amazing saws and provides a truck load of free information about how to keep your work at top speed.

Mark has always been an amazing supporter of women woodworkers.  For International Women’s Day he posted this video:

Progress on Carving Tool Chest

This is how I laid out the dovetails and the mitered shouldered dovetail for the bottom edge.

Carving tool box – Japanese styled

 I’m making a tool chest for my larger carving tools that are currently floating around in the shop.  An ax, and adze, etc.  If things go right, the small chest will hang on the wall when not being used to transport these tools.

It’s a modification of the Japanese tool chest but I’ll be using the mitered dovetail should for the joinery (video below).  I like this joint because I can plow through the slot for the bottom to fit into but it doesn’t show.  If that’s confusing, keep an eye out and you’ll see what I mean.

Frames

I had a chance to make some more frames with some inlay this time.  Mahogany with yellow heart inlay.
