End grain workbench. - 13 replies

Well I got to thinking since everyone makes end grain cutting boards. Why not make an end grain work bench? Just the top half rather. I would like to give it a try out of some fir. Are there any cons with this however? My biggest concerns are, one, the ends could split with a chisel slip, but wrapping it with 4/4 oak should solve that (I hope...

STANLEY NO. 607 JOINTER PLANE. - 11 replies

Well, I picked one up off of Ebay intending to actually use it. I would love to restore it and get her back to looking like new. The tote and frog are cracked. I was going to replace them with two pieces of curly maple and sandwiched an ebony strip in the middle for looks. The screws for the tote and frog on it aren’t original either so I ...
