This was a fun project, Robin and I really enjoyed making this spell book together! I assembled and carved the pieces and Robin did all the painting. I also made a small Walnut wand to go inside. The book/box is 12″ x 9″ x 3 1/4″

Hand tools & Joinery for Woodworkers | Woodworking Classes
Learn how to sharpen your chisels and planes and how to handcut mortise & tenons, dovetails and lap joints at http://www.schoolofwoodwork.com
One of our most popular classes at The Florida School of Woodwork in Tampa, Florida Is Hand tools & Joinery for Woodworkers. Just like all of our classes, this one is taught be a pro and designed to be perfect for beginners, but still VERY useful for experienced woodworkers.
There are just some things you can’t learn with a simple YouTube video. This class is perfect for you if:
– You are wanna be woodworker without a large woodworking shop. Hand tools are easy to store.
– You are a beginning woodworker still relying on mechanical joints and fasteners. There’s nothing like finishing a woodworking project with no screws or brackets, and knowing it will last for decades. That’s where Hand tools & Joinery Classes come in
– You are searching for something to DO. To actually MAKE something
The Florida School of Woodwork also has classes on Hand tools & Joinery that are available nights and weekends.
Here is what some of our students say:

http://bit.ly/MakeMoneyWoodworking — I heartily recommend this product – it gives you a jumpstart to success – an almost unfair advantage.
Starting your own woodworking business and making it successful is exciting! It can change your life in more ways than one.
But the truth is, it’s far easier to fail in this business – so you need to learn all you can and proceed with caution. It’s my sincere hope that this simple video helps you.
Whether you want to build a full-time business or make money woodworking on the side for now – you can do it.
1. Get Clear About The Type of Wood Products You’ll Provide. Don’t try to be all things to all people. But don’t miss out on potentially profitable ideas either. The point is… you need to know what kind of work you can easily handle, given your current facilities and woodworking equipment. Resist the temptation to buy additional machines and tools right away. Conserve your cash because cash flow is vital to a new business of any kind and especially in the woodworking industry.
2. Get Customers First. You’re really not in business until you have a cash-paying customer and therefore, this should be your number one priority when starting out. Marketing is the key to every business. You need an effective way to reach potential buyers and a selling strategy that works. Maybe you have retail outlets lined up who have agreed to sell your products from the floor. Or, perhaps you’re planning to sell your wares at craft shows, flea markets and consumer shows like the Home Show.
3. Start From Where You Are. If possible, begin your business from the garage or basement workshop to keep costs as low as possible. A separate building, such as a detached garage or large shed works best. Dust is a necessary by-product of working with wood, so having a shop that’s physically separate from your living space is best.
4. Bootstrap Your Way To Success. Start small and grow. If you cannot work from home, consider alternate possibilities like other people’s garages, sheds, barns – even reclaimed “portables” that once served as classrooms. One fellow I know was able to rent a portable classroom located on a property on the outskirts of town, as his wood shop. Even though the building was slightly run down, it was spacious, bright with natural light, and dirt-cheap.
5. Systemize Your Operations As Early As Possible. If you’re planning to create products in any quantity, it’s vital to the success of your enterprise that you adopt a “production” approach.
If you’re making small craft items, focus on one specific item at a time and figure out how to make a manageable number of them efficiently. “Systems” are the solution to virtually every aspect of production. Planning helps you get the numbers right, so you don’t make more products than you can easily sell. But you don’t want to make them one at a time, either – unless you’re running a custom furniture or cabinetry business. I don’t recommend that route for beginners, it requires plenty of experience as a custom cabinetmaker.
Take each design and create a detailed drawing. Then break the product down into its component parts by identifying every piece of wood, hardware, and any other materials used. It’s also important to have preselected wood stains and clear coat finishes. When you know exactly what goes into a product, you can very accurately determine your cost of materials.
A woodworking business of your own can be a beautiful thing. And it can start making you money from the beginning if you do things the right way.
While I struggled to build my woodworking shop to six figures, it can be a lot easier for you. Thanks to the internet, your learning can be way faster. You can spare yourself the mistakes I and many others have made by simply learning from the best courses available.
The one I recommend can be found at the top of this description. You’ll save yourself a ton of time, money, and aggravation too.
I never had this resource when I was in business. But I would have paid ten times the asking price If I only had the opportunity.

http://woodworking.about.com/ – some basic and more advanced woodwork projects
This is a selection of handmade / shop built tools that I have made to help me improve my woodworking skills.
Some of these tools have separate build or demonstration videos on my channel.
I did not have access to most tools for woodwork, so the necessity to design and make became the only option. For some this can be for financial reasons or a lack of availability. Not every location around the world has such a vast supply of tools at competitive prices, thus the option to create your own becomes important. They are usually inexpensive and can be made from scrap or recycled material.
I have included my marking gauges, chisel plane, my first wooden hand plane, chisel racks, awl’s, a marking knife, a centre finder and winding sticks.
The most expensive tools i have built are the woodworking machinery. My band saw and belt sander where both made by following the plans from Matthias Wandel.
I have not included some tools, as I simply forgot to 😀 I have also made a Bow Saw that I use daily and many jigs. Also my Workbench, but that has a video of its own. They will probably be seen in future videos.
I have a large list of tools that I plan to make and design. These will become the substance of future videos 🙂
