This is the first project done on my new bench.

Everything was done by hand. Resawed the cocobolo blank by hand then chiseled out the recess for the blade. This was also my first time hardening steel myself from some O1 CL810 sent me. Thanks man!

Epoxied the whole thing together along with brass rivets.

Finished with a couple of coats of shellac.

Thanks for looking!

Nice work Mauricio. Looks great. Did you do the sharpening before mailing it off?

Great work Mauricio. The blade came out great – hard to believe it was your first time working the steel.

Sweet! I like the shape and appearance of it. How’d the hardening process work out? I think I remember you having an obstacle to jump over with that.

nice design. Are the rivets peened or just epoxied?

Cool. To think I would’ve counted myself out because I don’t have a lathe. I like yours as much as the turned ones.

Thanks Tony! I did, I gave it the full sharpening treatment, got it nice and shiny.

Thanks Sergio, yeah for a minute the kids were having fun playing on the new bench and I was able to get some things done while they were playing. It was awesome but unfortunately their excitement has faded.

Thanks again for the steel CL and thanks for the instruction on treating it.

Brandon, at first I got it red hot and then quenched it but after tempering it the steel was too soft. So I did It again but this time got it to straw color and that worked much better.
Thanks Shane & Ken!

Don, just epoxied. But I also colored the epoxy which helped hide gaps around the brass from sloppy drilling.

Red that’s what I’m saying, you don’t need a lathe. I have a lathe but just liked this design better. Let the nice wood do the talking.

Thanks everyone for the comments, and thanks for looking!

Mauricio, either you have really small hands or you have a carpenter apprentice in the wings :). Thanks for posting this, it is one tool that I should have and don’t yet. I will put this on my to-do list for sure. I’m glad to see you getting some mileage out of that beautiful bench you built.
