This is my first project on this forum…..and to be honest, whilst its a very quick and perhaps “rough” build…it sort of represents some of the things I really enjoy in woodworking. I’m starting to love making tools, tool jigs and the like. Whilst I have used some machinery to get through this build – my aim is to ultimately use the equipment I build for most of my wood working projects.
With this bench grinder tool rest – I was motivated by a very recent project by another forum-ite “bit101” and “stumpy nubs” and also by the fact that I have just bought “another” bunch of old chisels that I was anticipating resurrecting for another life in my shop. A bench grinder rest seemed just the ticket….so I dived into it.
as you can see from the photos, its been predominantly made from 19mm plywood, a handful of wood screws and a few stick of douglas fir. Ok – a couple of long bolts with wing-nut knobs and a small leftover piece of aluminium track that I had stored for that rainy day use!!. It all came together over 1 evening…and a couple beers.
Hope you like it….still needs a bit of sanding down to bring to a smooth square finish and perhaps a couple coats of polyurethene. otherwise – its pretty much there….
