The finishing of this small project also marks the finishing of my woodwork for a few months as I’m headed to a shipyard in Holland next week. See you in a few months! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #cedar #handtoolsonly #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #chisel #dovetails #saw

I cleaned these joints up with the No.4 Smoothing Plane and the No.60 1/2 Block Plane. They’re definitely the workhorses of the workshop. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #lienielsentoolworks #handtoolsonly #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #chisel #dovetails #saw
I cut these tails and sockets out today. They’ll glue up overnight. I used a 1:6 profile for the tails, which are walnut and will sit in maple sockets. I really like the masking tape method for marking out the footprint of the dovetails on the end grain of the pin piece. It’s very reliable. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #handtoolsonly #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #chisel #dovetails #saw
I was practicing half lap dovetails today. I find them harder to get right than a through dovetail. This is my level at the moment; there’s another 10-15% in terms of accuracy to work on to get to a joint I’d be completely happy with. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #handtoolsonly #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #chisel #dovetails #saw
This nice little tapered dovetail saw arrived from @lienielsentoolworks today. I used it straight away to cut the tails for a small half lap dovetail box I’m making. It took a bit of getting used to, having used only Japanese pull saws thus far. I find it harder to start a cut but once you get going, the rigid brass back makes straight cutting much easier. The slightly wider kerf takes a bit of getting used to too. All in all, a beauty. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #lienielsentoolworks #backsaw #saw
I trimmed the corners of the mezzanine tray this morning, to fit it into the main body of the humidor. The 45 degree Walnut inserts on the inside corners have allowed me to cut a lot of the mitre joint away and still maintain it’s strength. I like how the splines on the trimmed corners look too. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #makersgonnamake #humidor
Today’s progress. Tear out concealers to match the concealers in the main body of the humidor. I’m also making a small box, from walnut and maple, to hold my watch and wedding ring, before I loose them. I’m waiting until Thursday to cut the tails as I’m expecting a wee present from Mr. Lie Nielsen 😉 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry ##lienielsentoolworks #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #ireland #tools #makersgonnamake #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #humidor
Today, I splined the mitres of the Cedar mezzanine tray with Black Walnut. I also cut the tray handle from Cedar. The tray still needs to be fitted to the humidor, to accommodate the tear out concealers I added at the start. A good afternoon! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #builtnotbought #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #cigarsmoker #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #friday #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #thanksforlooking #humidor
The mezzanine tray for the humidor is in the midst of a glue up. I’ll cut the tray handle tomorrow. Successful day. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #skill #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #cigarsmoker #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #glueup #life #craft #cedar #humidor
I did the basics on the second humidor handle this afternoon. After which, I realised I don’t own a set of needle files, for the hard to reach corners. Off to Amazon. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #thursday #fun #cigarsmoker #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #humidor
Of course I couldn’t resist taking the new @lienielsentoolworks No.4 for a burn. It’s an incredibly nice tool to work with, you can feel the quality. I’m really looking forward to getting to use it in earnest tomorrow. It’s great to see my hand tool collection growing. Tools I’ll use for the next 50 years. If I’m lucky. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #lienielsen #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #tooltuesday #fun #everyday #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #benchplane #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #handplane
Lots of progress on the humidor today. The lid glue up went well and I added some Birch splines to the mitres. The lid still needs some fine tuning in places, but all in all, a success. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #everyday #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #fridayfeeling #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #humidor
I ripped and planed this Spanish Cedar down from 3/4” stock, to make a tray for the humidor. I think Cedar is, hands down, the nicest smelling timber when worked. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #timber #woodworker #carpentry #workshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #everyday #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #beautiful #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #cedar
It’s always good to get a project finished up. I finished this Black Walnut & Maple handtool storage box today. I’m waiting on some beauties to arrive next week to store in it. I love the grain on the lid . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #tooltuesday #newtools #photooftheday #handmade #dovetail #joinery #handtools #handplane #fun #makersgonnamake #maker #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodtools #joint #handsaw #woodworkersofinstagram #life #box #dovetails #saw
Clamp free glue up! The cedar lining fitted so well that I didn’t need to clamp anything. I added walnut slats to hold the cedar tray. The end grain tear out concealers worked well too! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #cigar #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #humidor #fun #everyday #follow #happy #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #humidor
And the splines are in! The glue up went reasonably well and the spline jig worked very well. I used Maple for the splines and I’ll trim them up tomorrow once the glue has set. Next job, the bottom. . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #cigar
I sliced out some rebates on the table saw this morning, for the bottom of the humidor. Now to see if I can glue and clamp the mitres properly. This is a very enjoyable project so far. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #humidor
I’ve been finishing off a Black Walnut and Maple hand tool storage box today. To fit the bottom to the last one I made, I cut the four stop rabbets with an electric router. Having watched a lot of @paul.a.j.sellers over the weekend, I decided I better do this one by hand. It was far more satisfying and surprisingly, more accurate! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #dovetails
I’m back from two months at sea and ready to get stuck in again. This Spanish Cedar and Black Walnut is going to become a humidor. I’m going to try splined mitres for the first time with this one. Looking forward to what’s ahead! . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #cigar #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #mondaymotivation
I finished this Black Walnut & Maple decorative box this afternoon. Does anybody else have a complete inability not to mortise a no-mortise hinge? This is also the last project for a while. I’m shuttin’ ‘er down since it’s time to go back to sea.

I came up with this solution to the problem of not being able to undercut a slot for a nail or screw head to hang this piece on. I drilled a hole in the top edge and a hole in the back of the piece, then put a short plug in the top hole, creating an effective ‘undercut’ for the nail or screw head. . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers
Since I’ll be at sea on the 25th, today is my Christmas Day. And what a day! I got a @lienielsentoolworks block plane and a @crownhandtools sliding bevel. High quality hand tools are just nice to look at! . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #instadaily #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #killybegs #love #ireland #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #christmas
The Santos Mahogany proved to be the most difficult wood I’ve ever had to work with. It blunts a razor sharp edge in minutes. Although a bit of a pain in the ass, there was great satisfaction getting today’s job done. . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #wooden #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #craftsman #love #woodcraft #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #dovetails #santosmahogany
I’m marking out some 1:7 tails on Santos Mahogany for tomorrow. I’m going to attempt half blind dovetails, to expand my skill set a bit. The sockets will be in Iroko, I’ve heard good things about it’s workability, so hopefully it goes well. . . . . . . . #irishwoodworking #fiaruawoodwork #woodworking #woodwork #wood #woodworker #carpentry #woodshop #photooftheday #handmade #wooden #joinery #handtools #powertools #fun #woodlovers #woodcarving #craftsman #love #woodcraft #tools #woodporn #joint #instagram #woodworkersofinstagram #life #woodworkersofig #instawoodworkers #dovetails
