Over There: Roorkee Hardware & Tool Storage

If you don’t check my blog at Popular Woodworking Magazine, here are a couple of items you might be interested in.

I’m finishing off two Roorkee chairs this week and am using some different hardware bits that are working out quite well. If you want a preview, check out this entry on my hardware sources for Roorkee chairs.

After I buy a new 1/4” leather punch (the old one is roaming California or Germany or who-knows where), I’ll post some completed photos of the chairs and discuss some of the hardware options I’ve been investigating.

The other thing you might check out is a three-part series on storing hand tools. I have used (and still use) a variety of ways to keep my tools at hand. You might not agree with my perspective, but that’s OK. Because I’m OK and you’re OK. There’s what’s right and there’s what’s right, and never the twain shall meet.

Part 1: Principles 1, 2 & 3
Part 2: Principles 4, 5 & 6
Part 3: Principles 7, 8 and (BONUS!) 9
