Nice job. I really like that idea. Simple and very useful.

Nice one William.
I have become a convert of Mr Sellars as well.
I finished a workbench today and was thinking of making exactly this sort of block this afternoon, which was spent sharpening some planes and chisels.

It’s easy to make. I probably spent an hour on it.
The next thing I want to make for the shop is a sharpening station. I’m thinking of a board with ribs to hold my stones. Then another thicker rib on the underside to clamp in my vice so the board itself won’t move.

I know Bagtown. It’s what my budget has allowed for a while now. Bad coffee is better than no coffee.

I want to put it this way. When I used to go to Williams shop, I took my own chisels.
I love it, your chisels are much happier now. And you will be to. Now when are you going to sharpen those planes for them younguns.
Man that block looks nice. Makes mine look like crap.
Hey I need to borrow your saw;)

Do not fear hhhopks, I still employ the use of a lot of coffee cans. I store EVERYTHING in them.

Super, what do you mean, when you “used” to come to my shop. So you’re not coming back? You have to, and bring your chisels so we can measure and make you one of these.

Actually, they sharpened it themselves. How else are they going to learn?

I’m good Super. I’ll bet I could figure out a way to present all five set efficiently and still make it look good.

That’s right, I’m feeling just that dang confident tonight. Watch out!
