Newnes Complete Practical Woodworking Part 2

So continuing with the "Newnes Complete Practical Woodworking" I have selected a few more articles that some may find interesting. First is an article on some simple but useful tools you can make for your shop. To start off here is the cover and the contents page, in case someone decides to look for it in the used market, where I found my copy.












Lots of good stuff for the small shop DIY'er . The tool boxes, as in a similar previous post, are ideal for the home DIY'er who does the occasional job around the house or yard, and keeps a small set of tools handy and in good shape. The tool hold-all is very convenient for small tools and fasteners, can be stored on a shelf and is easily moved to the job to save you many trips looking for different types and sizes of nails, screws etc.

Portable Toolcase

Recently a parent of a son working towards his Scout woodworking badge expressed thanks for some of the woodworking articles found on this site. The son was looking to build a toolbox as a gift for a relative.

Following is another plan from "Woodworking Plans And Projects" of a very nice portable toolcase that would suit the typical home owner or even apartment dweller. You don't need to have a large shop or be a shop hermit to require a basic set of tools to do repairs and small projects around the house and yard. This toolcase is an excellent solution to keep your tools together, easily stored, and portable. The article has good instruction for cutting good quality, hand cut, dovetail joinery, for the novice to improve on his or her skills and produce a good quality and useful toolcase.
