My Chest of Drawers in carved walnut and ash is featured in the April 2013 issue of Fine Woodworking magazine, which just came out.  It is a one of a kind piece, contemporary and sculptural. This chest of drawers has a carved walnut exterior with integral carved drawer pulls, ash drawer boxes with hand cut dovetails, traditional Danish-style wooden drawer slides, mitered carcass construction with mortise and tenon joinery (90 degree finger-jointed tenons), and a book-matched solid walnut frame-and-panel back.  The finish is hand rubbed Danish oil. This chest won the First Place Award for Custom Studio Furniture in the 2012 Vermont Fine Furniture and Wood Products Design Competition. My carved wood spatulas and cherry spoons won a First Place Award in the 2006 Vermont Fine Furniture and Wood Products Design Competition.

While I have LN and LV planes and they are wonderful, I have several old Stanley and Sargent planes that are great workers. One of the most enjoyable moments of my life is the time I hurled a Stanley block plane into the into Blackwattle Bay.Didn't even try to save the iron.
There are certainly some rather esoteric and perhaps zen advantages to persevering with tools like this, and it is certainly character building, but it isn't efficient in any sense.
I'd rather spend my valuable time on more productive activities such as gstarng out across the water,scratching my bum and wondering what might have been.
The Hock iron in my Stanley jack plane works OK and that's all, but whatever I do, it's ordinary compared to a proper plane(and I spent hours flattening the sole), but the backlash in the adjuster of a Stanley or Record is unforgiveable.
I'd have never built anything, had I waited 'till I had the spare change to purchase enough of the right varieties of Veritas or LN plane. Thanks very much, Steve, but my old Stanley (and my older woodie) planes, my re-handled antique chisels of promiscuous brands, and my re-sharpened Disston saws have served me very well.
I have a couple of Stanleys that were made in the 1970s or 1980s and the mechanisms are total POSs. Perhaps the poor quality of Stanley in the 70s and 80s really gave LV and LN a market opportunity they would not otherwise have had?


Give me a budget and a set of drawings and I could do that, except for the turnings and carvings. Michael J Hanley is the proprietor of Autumn Woods Studio and has pursued fine woodworking over the course of 35 years.
I''ve been using a rolling computer chair that goes up and down to get the right height for dovetails.
CKocourek writes: Thanks for the kind words about my workbench; it's great to see such a positive response! Magnet clamps - embedded at each of the workbench are three rare-earth magnets that are used in combination with the clamping board (shown on top of the bench). While I like the barbell idea for the wheel, I could also envision an old sailor making a miniature helm wheel for the same purpose.

All it would have taken for the designers of that tool was to specify a finer thread and a flat sole and it could have been a reasonably workmanlike tool. Expensive tools are fine, and I wouldn't be surprised if they are a bit easier to use, but it's a bit of a stretch to call everything else rubbish. He has designed and built timberframed homes and interiors, custom furniture and accents.  His work features hardwoods with exotic color and grain patterns, unusually wide boards, quarter sawing and bookmatching for affect. Some woodworkers have multiple work stations for handplaning, power tools and even carving, which is great if you have the space and inclination for multiple benches.
Whether you collect hand planes or seek out the latest and greatest in power tools, our expert tool addicts will keep you in the loop with news, reviews, and commentary on the latest in woodworking tools. This system efficiently holds down plastic or paper sheeting that cover the bench during painting or other messy tasks. A hydraulic system for rhythmmatically tilting the shop floor back and forth would be optional, of course.


Most often it's sharpening, but I also use it for drilling, holding bench hooks and shooting boards and occassionally as a chop-saw station. Any other chisel you buy will sooner or later get used for chopping glass and epoxy and opening beer bottles.Don't waste beer money on chisels.
Contrary to popular opinion, you can indeed make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but why bother?
I can guess what the wood materials costs are but can you give a ballpark as to how much the hardware costs? His fascination with motors and gears goes beyond woodworking, he's also an enthusiastic hot-rodder who likes to restore old cars, and is the author of Automotive Woodworking (Motor Books International, 2002). You could add a roll of paper under the one end of the bench and just pull it up and over to your magnetic strip.
I don't expect to rewind the motor and replace the switch of an electric drill or router to get it to work properly, and I am no longer going to do the equivalent with hand tools.
Simple, and inexpensive.I tried using a hydraulic lift outfit and the ram or arm bent when I left weight on it, which rendered it useless. I don’t want to filch any secretes, but an answer would help me fit it into next years budget.
I prefer a long handle for leverage as you really don't get that much with the handle that short. As well as some interior lumber storage I have outdoor storage where I currenly have about 3000 board feet of West Indian mahogany and 1000 board feet of local white cedar air drying.
