« Part 1: Trying out the #78 Part 2 of Skill Building series no next part

With a nod to Jim Tolpin and the New Traditional Woodworker I am going to attempt to complete all of his skill building projects. I would submit that my bench hooks would qualify as my first project in this theme.

These winding stick are a hybrid of Tolpin’s project and the blog entry by Schwarz.

The sticks are made from a curly walnut stick and the inlays are poplar.

The pics are pretty much self explanatory. No hold fast holes yet but illustrates a benefit of the split top.

Thanks for looking.

Scot – Great job my friend. I’m still using two bits of aluminium angle, one with a bit of black electrician’s tape along the apex. How long did you make them?

Those put my poor popular sticks to shame. Nice job. You make me want to endeavor to build a better set. Well done.
