Eveyone needs a plan so here’s mine.
The goal of this plan is to help me make the things I need to produce fine furniture and other wooden objects.
Here is my project list:
- Saw bench
I’m thinking something like this.
- Saw vise
This will allow me to sharpen my saws
Most people would build this first but with the amount of sawing needed I would first rather have my saws set up well.
I work on my back porch, so I need something to move my tools from the house to the porch.
- Pole lathe
My grandad gave me a great set of turning tools. I want to learn how to use them.
- File handles
Grandad never put handles on his files. I have a scar on my palm from a file tang. My files will have handles.
- Try square
I don’t have one (I have a combination square instead), and the rosewood ones look so pretty.
- Bevel gauge
I’m a sucker for rosewood and brass.
- Some planes
WayneC’s suggestion :)
The general idea is that each project will be needed for the following ones, and that the skills used to build each will ready me for the next.
Any suggestions or designs will be most welcome!
