Over the last week or so I’ve been doing some odd jobs around the shop.
A new handle for my bench vice – beech with walnut caps. I got the bench secondhand and the hand was a bit short, a bit thin with nasty plastic end caps !!
A chisel mallet which I turned from a bit of wood I got from my good friend & fellow LJ, Rick Koorman. I can’t remember the species (Rick might remember), it turned like crap but it’s nice and heavy so it’ll do the job !! And I’ve enough left for about another 10, so I shouldn’t run out….!!
Lastly, I made a new handle (tote) & knob for my Stanley No.4C. It’s a plane I bought when I first came to The Netherlands. I needed one to do a quick job around the house and didn’t want to spend too much. Since I got it, I’ve wanted to replace the nasty plastic handles (also pictured) but never got round to it. Well at long last…....!! I used some beautiful cherry (if it’s good enough for LN…..) which I also got from my mate Rick….....thanks !!!!
