Dugout Wooden Boxes

Tools You Need & How To Make

Alright today on Repairs101 I’m going to finish this dugout wooden box that I started last week. And I’ll show you the tools I used to make it and other boxes just like it. So you know, I get a lot of questions about the tools I use for different jobs.

Safety gear is by far the most important thing you need to get. You want to use a vise to hold your work when you’re working with chisels. Or you’re going to get cut… a lot

As far as saws go I use my table saw whenever I can. But that’s not to say you can’t do this kind of project with hand tools. You’ll want to get yourself a speed square and a couple of steel straight edge rulers.

Just like with the table saw a drill press makes light work out of hogging out all those holes. But it can be done with a hand drill and some tape on the bit for a depth gauge.

Now, if I could only have two chisels I’d pick this little gouge and this small skew chisel. I rely on those two more than all my other chisels combined. Now you can use files, rasps and or rifflers to obtain the desired bowl shape. But I just carved this as flat as I could and sanded it to two hundred and forty grit. A couple coats of mineral oil and we’re done! Alright thanks for watching and don’t forget to subscribe!
