I took up woodwork after a life changing injury and Lumberjocks was the main inspiration in the decision. It has taken me a while to get used to making things and this isn’t perfect but it doesn’t stop me being proud of it.
I was gifted the thicknesser by a joiner in return for working on his compound archery bow and fantastic as it is, there simply wasn’t space for it in my 13×7 workshop. The design was found on here and other places, the only real difference was that I reamed out some M12 nuts to act as bushings for the M12 threaded rod that the assembly rotates on, which seemed to make more sense than relying on the wood.
Anyway, I now have another workbench top to make and a router lift before I can start making some real stuff.
