Just a couple quick workshop projects I knocked off today.
The first is a oak blade guard for my jointer. I just traced the old one, put a 1/4 pine spacer at the swivel end, and used the dowel from a foam brush for the pivot, The dowel is notched in the end to accept the spring to tension it.
The second is a lumber rack made from 2X4s and 1/2 inch ply, based on the design from Wood magazine, issue 160. The slats are movable and removable.
The last is something I desperately needed. All my screw drivers and most my chisels lived in a drawer. Just about the worst place for a chisel, and It would take far too long to find a screwdriver. I made a simple holder with holes and notches to hold the screwdrivers and chisels.
All in all nothing here is well built or groundbreaking but they are projects that made working it the shop nicer, and that’s good enough for me,
-- You know.... I think that old wood needs to be furniture.
