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.
