IMG_7278.JPGmy shop's traveling pegboard13 viewsThis storage center has been in my shops in three houses, and supports easily several times its own weight. It is suspended from the floor joists above on two aircraft-style multi strand cables, and should one of those slip, the whole board would only drop less than 1/4" inc onto the benchtop below.

Items on this board include braces, drawshave, perfect handle and cabinetmakers screwdrivers, marking gauges, hand drills, gimlets, try squares, steel rules, metal shears, drill & screw sizing gauges

IMG_3650.jpgWhen the sixth box delivery of the day was slit open .. 17 views... the contents definitely were not the other item being awaited for the day's shipments. No indeed, a whole cubic foot of mahogany shavings tried to escape onto the family room furniture and carpet, but were quickly forced back inside. A quick check of the shipping label revealed the culprit .. err ... Elf over in Asheville NC had been at work. A little creative stretching of an elfin sack, and six objects nicely wrapped in holiday paper appeared from within the shavings.Charlie DriggsDec 21, 2017

IMG_3652.jpgThe six objects within the tight wrappings were these .. 70 viewstwo versions of what I expect are hot sauce, and very hot sauce; a small box from Lee Valley and a device within not seen before by this Galoot; three large chunks of dogwood wood (is there a rhyme tied to that somewhere?), Michael Dunbar's Federal Furniture book in hardcover, and one of the Charles Hayward series on period furniture, this volume on the English breeds of the speciesCharlie DriggsDec 21, 2017

IMG_3654.jpgand in the little Lee Valley box we find ... 70 views.. a circular guillotine-ish device for sharpening pencils ... if you get fed up with the pencil, this could give it a slow return to the Earth from which it sprung, sliver by sliver of cedar shavings. I think I can use this without blood spatters involved.Charlie DriggsDec 21, 2017

IMG_2799.JPGGalootaclaus 2016 79 views11 items, two for chunks of Bodark and Mesquite from Texas, two for chisels needing a boatload of care, a bit holder also needing some help, a box of #7 slotted flat heads from Sweden of all places, dual sheave blocks, a mystery #593 Stanley hammer without faces, a NIB set of 6 Greenlee Irwin style bits, some acid brushes, and a tubular thing that apparently grows that way - never saw anything like this before, but I'm guessing that grew in Texas too. Quite an assortment.Charlie DriggsDec 28, 2016

IMG_2083.jpgCloseup of the "introduction" to Issue #1 Mortise & Tenon36 viewsWhy, it's even written in 18th century English! Remember that "f's" are often "s's" ..Charlie DriggsFeb 27, 2016

IMG_0715.JPGMoxon vise 42 viewsThis is build to drop into the dog holes along the east edge of the bench. With a 20" opening between the screws and a 6" capacity, it can handle most all drawer boxes I would likely work on as well as any dovetail joints.Charlie DriggsJan 31, 2016
