Ok, these things seem to be the “thing” to make….so here’s my version. 1st one is in Bloodwood and Ash. 2nd in EI Rosewood. Gift box for the Rosewood one is in Paduak and Gen. Mahogany. Bloodwood goes into my tool drawer!

I recently saw one of these demonstrated and was impressed, but not enough to shell out $60.00 – $70.00. Do you have one and copied it, work from a plan, or just wing it when you made these?

MattinCincy, there is a TON of discussion on here concerning these. I looked thru them all, set down and designed one on CAD, then went to the shop and winged it!! Not exactly as I planned, but effective.

Really cool, and elegant design.
And yet another way to construct it, this I like especially.
As I see, you used the original design, and moved the locking mechanism for the size of wood up.
I think it would be interesting one day to compare these different models so we can find out the best about each type.
Can we see a picture where its put apart, to understand the principal? (I made some also so I’m curious)
Best thoughts,
MaFe

Mike:

So where are you kerf maker/master makers getting those brass nuts and knobs? I think I need to build a handful of these for gifts for various woodworkers in my life.

Found mine in a mixed package at Menards in the ceiling fan area. They are a bit thin IMO, so hope they don’t strip out. They are 6mm standard thread.
