Anarchist’s Tool Chest | Over the Wireless

How about an end anarchist s tool chest I also could not find good, concise, substantiated guidelines for evaluating and buying used tools, and had no idea -- when I wandered into one of suburban Chicago's specialty woodworking shops -- if a wood soled or metal soled plane was better, or why.

How I wish I'd had this book then. It would have solved all of my beginner woodworker problems.

And, even though the Internet has a lot more on it now than it did 14 years ago, concise, collected, well written and packaged information is still difficult to come by -- hence, this book.

Now, 14 years on anarchist s tool chest several hand tool projects and too many incorrect purchases under my belt, I can say that Schwarz is right.

This book does a terrific job of helping to prioritize purchases: Some tools, for example, are for anarchist s tool chest pieces or very specific maneuvers.

Schwarz also always says why he's making the recommendation he is, telling stories from personal experience. It also made me feel less crazy for some of my past mistakes: Well, that certainly explains the days and days of anarchist s tool chest along with this particular style of plane that even an expert, master woodworking instructor couldn't help me get right!

Finally, this is just an enjoyable read. To my surprise, oak is a real joy to work.

The Moxon was also my first encounter with Benchcrafted hardware. Yes, oak will push up the build costs, but will also stand the test of time, and feels very English.

The Anarchist's Tool Chest by Christopher Schwarz

Probably not, but a nice solid bench combining the best of 18th century continental design anarchist s tool chest a quintessentially English timber does appeal. I use the dog holes in my Sjoberg end vise as a make-shift wagon vise and this method of working has become second nature, so a wagon vise currently feels like an essential addition rather than a luxury.

My final addition to the Plate 11 design will be a sliding deadman. So the crotchet goes. There are still some major design decisions left to resolve, the most significant of which are the length of the bench, and construction of the top.

The laminated top involves a great deal more jointing than the slab top, but anarchist s tool chest be significantly cheaper.

If the slab top ends up being two-piece which all really depends on what oak I can source then I am strongly considering using loose pegged tenons as demonstrated by Richard Maguire to provide a mechanical joint in addition to the bucketload of epoxy.

That should hold everything together for a couple of hundred years. Where the slab top gets complicated is installing the wagon vise. Richard Macguire has previously sawn the wagon vise chanel into the slab topand bolted an end cap to the slab.


That works very nicely.
