Forgive My Insensitivity… A public Thank You is in order before I go any further. I had some great support from two individuals that are a part of LumberJocks. I relied heavily on Dave Pruett for “on call” support to figure out how to edit / process / and post my video. I need to thank Marc Spagnuolo as well. I did not continually call him like Dave, but his advice and pointers were taken to heart and helped me out as well. As with my woodworking, my achievement...
So its almost New Year and I,m planing my projects for the next 12 months and one of those is a set of bench planes. I have a number 3 and 5 from Stanley, a block lane from Stanley and a copy of a Record rebate plane from Rolson all of which are ok to start with but I,m keen to make something a bit different. I have all the info I need to make the bodies so thats not a problem, what i can,t find here in the Philippines is the irons. I could order some from hock or lee valley but there is two ...
I’ve begun the shop work on my coat center project, whose (rough) design can be found here in a Google Sketchup v7 file. The goal is to allow my short kids to be able to hang their coats themselves, and also have a place to manage their library books and hats & gloves. There is also a discussion of my progress here during my first shop session on the project. I was able to make a fair amount of progress in about four hours of time, which is unusually productive for me! Enjoy...

Here is a posting that appeared today on Craigslist for a 16” jointer in the Georgetown, Kentucky area. This looks like it would be an interesting challenge for someone who like to restore “older” tools.
Here are some shots of the imitation Pottery Barn bench I constructed for my wife for Christmas. I wasn’t satisfied with the finish so I still have some work to do. Luckily my wife is looking forward to helping me (re)finish it. I think I want to add some faux wear to this front corner before I re-stain.
I have collected allot of hand saws from auctions and flea markets and they have been accumulating in various places in the shop. Some have been restored, some are waiting to be restored, some are just useful for parts or stock for scrapers, etc… I decieded I wanted to build a wall mounted saw till, but I didn’t want to spend any money on the project. The plan was for a simple wall mounted cabinet tall enough for the saws to rest vertically on a dowel with doors and some drawer...
Note: This post started out as a reply to this comment on my personal blog, but I felt it warranted its own blog entry. I just received what I call my first “hate mail” over on Adventures in Woodworking. It’s actually not hateful, just insulting and mean. In short, Adam (not Cherubini) tore apart the workmanship on my chisel box (which even I said was shoddy), and said that the plastic packaging the chisels came in was better than what I did. At first, I was angry, sur...
