A gallery of shopmade tools, benches, and other shop items


Article Image
Nick Pedulla’s tool wall in Sydney, Australia.

When we put out a request on social media for people to send us photos of their shopmade tools, workbenches, tool cabinets, boxes, and other workshop items for our annual Tools & Shops issue (FWW#293), we were delighted at the loads of photos that came in. So many of them were so great, it was impossible to fit them all into the print edition of the magazine.

And it was so much fun to scroll through all the great things you sent, we didn’t want to keep them to ourselves. So here are the editors’ picks for the most interesting shopmade tools and other work. For our readers, from our readers. Enjoy!

 Mobile router table
Garrett Mueller, Mobile router table. “The router table is designed to fold up and take to job sites. It’s made from Maple and Sapele. The fence rides on two aluminum tracks and tightens down with a single knob screwed to a threaded rod that runs through the length of the fence. I’ve also attached breadboard ends to keep the table flat while still allowing wood movement.”
Franz's workshop
Franz Quendler, Vienna, Austria (www.quendler.at). Franz’s workshop is about 300 km away from where he lives, but with Covid slowing things down, he’s been able to spend more time there. “The building is about 300+ years old and part of an old townwall construction, big walls, two rooms on the ground floor with vaulted ceilings and not a single straight wall. The only big and freestanding wall I used for my planes and chisels.”
My version of the North Bennet Street tool case.
Dave Rothstein. “My version of the North Bennet Street tool case. I followed along with Matt Wajda on FWW.com, and learned a lot in the process. I started out using his basic design, but altered the drawer heights so I could get my planes in the bottom drawer, and I had to add some kumiko, which I have been playing with for the last year or so.”
