Beginner Hand Tool Woodworking Project. Spalted Beech Pencil Case.
What’s happening guys. In this video I build a spalted beech pencil case. You guys wanted a simple hand tool project, I needed a Pencil case and to use my new tenon saw!

I’ve always understood a dado is across the grain a groove is with the grain and I’ve never heard a rabbit called anything different regarding grain direction. Nice work !
A lovely result. I was just curious, you put a lot of effort into allowing for wood movement. However, as far as I could see, when you attached the lid to the top of the side piece there was no allowance for the movement of the top. I was just wondering if there was a reason for this, or if I have missed something?
A great video as always John and has inspired me to get out in the workshop. Keep up the good work
John, what shoulder plane are you using in this video?
Dado has three sides while a rebate has two. A rabbit is a four legged herbivore with big ears that americans believe has something to do with joinery.
Brilliant video John. Want to give this one a go. No real woodworking experience. One question I have is, where is a good place to look for small quantities of different varieties of woods?
I never knew tool envy was a thing until now lol
Wow, I remember making this at school at the start of the trade haha
Nice John. The way I learned it was : Dados are across grain, Grooves are with the grain and Rebates are on an edge.
This was relaxing to watch! Really want to invest into some hand planes to try some hand tool projects
Muchas palabras, recuerde que no toda su audiencia habla inglés. Explique haciendo, uno pierde el interés a los 15 o 20 segundo que no ve la acción.
What is that tool called @ 12:35 ? 🙂
Is your rebate plane a modern plane or an antique? I was looking at your list of tools, but don’t see it. I was hoping it might be a modern tool that can be purchased.
Nice video!! Thanks.
Hi John, you have the same stance for cutting wood as I had when I was in school, namely you hold the saw with both hands. The difference was that I was constantly told off for doing so, my teacher always said that you do not force the saw but let the saw glide over the wood and that would stop you from going off the line and getting a crooked cut, I was told off so much that now I rarely use a hand saw because I find it awkward to cut with.
My understanding is: dado – across the grain with a shoulder on each side. Groove – with the grain with shoulders on each side. Rabbit/rebate – across or with grain along an edge, so only one shoulder
Perfect,! I plan to make this for my grandaughter’s colored pencils! Thanks John!
John, which plane are you using to do the rebates?
You can go to the Woodprix website if you would like to do it yourself.
What plough/grooving plane did you use to do the grooves? I need one.
Your 40 you look 20
Hi John, could you answer a question about your shooting boards? How do you prevent the plane strokes from removing stock from the shooting board itself and therefore making it "out of square"?
What was the tool you used to create the rebate/rabbit?
Nice project, great presentation!
Dados have two shoulders, like a canyon. Rebates only have one shoulder, like a ledge.
Seriously hermano, in every video you repeat the same thing at least 3 times on every step. STOP DOING THIS
Love the saw John and that fantastic rebate/rabbit plane. Got to get me one of those bad boys. 🤣🤣. Great back to basics vid, which we all need every now and then. 👍
Great video, really enjoyable style there. Gonna price up one of those Bad Axe tennon saws for myself.
I believe the difference between a rebate and dado is that the dado has two walls, so inside from the end or edge, a rebate has just one wall so forms an L shape at the edge or end.
What model plough plane were you using? Nice.
Hi John, beautiful tenon saw nice 40th birthday present happy birthday. Another awesome project from mike in New Zealand. Is Ireland still in lock downs with the COVID pandemic?
Absolute beginner here, so found this a really inspiring & informative video (as yours always are). One question – what was the tool you used to make the groove after you’d marked it up? Am I looking for something called a rebate plane? It didn’t seem the same as the router planes I’ve seen, which only seem to work down the centreline of the tool – yours looked like the width from the edge of the workpiece could be set and locked in.
Made a similar one from scrap wood this summer, also ordered a mug, I have a collection of coffee mugs, the Wood Life one will be a nice addition.
The joint you cut into the 4 sides are grooves….. grooves go with the grain and are only open on one side. A groove that goes across the grain is a dado. The shape you cut into the top and bottom is a rebate….. on an edge and open on 2 sides. The old term for the rebate on the end of a board is known as a "fillister". I dont think your plough plane is equipped with a scoring cutter for cross grain work, did you saw the walls of the cross grain rebates or did ya sneak in a cheeky bit of router table action off camera? 😁
And again….. no way are you in your 40s lad 🤔😂
Awesome video, never seen the plane used like this and it’s genius, also what’s the tool you use for the rebates… Makes things so simple!
Love it 😀 thanks
Rabbits are on the edge of a board, typically for bottoms, tops and backs of cabinets. Dado’s are interior to the boards, usually used for shelves or dividers. American terminology…
Love to see how you put your videos together John, software, process etc… This is an excellent build the wife wants me to make her one 🥺🥺
Awesome well done.
Nice One!! I am definitely making one as well!
This was actually the first thing I made in my woodwork class at school, 54 years ago 😁
12:22 that’s a groove not a rebate
When did you start doing joinery work in secondary school ? Give up the Leccie
Brilliant little project. Very instructive and a great result. Thanks for sharing 👍
I’ve had no luck with the cheaper hand planes and tuning them but love using hand tools vs electric. Any recommendations for my first real investment in a quality plane?
Just found my love again for woodwork, cheers John.
That one awesome wife you have sir.
Nice to demonstrate all your knowledge With us
Another great video, clearly explained and simple to follow. Thanks John.
That is a really nice little project.
Nice work 👍,love when you put the finish on how it brings out the wood beautiful
