  1. Sharpening Station

    Now that I've taken the plunge and purchased a honing guide, I decided to make a sharpening station to make the work quicker. It's just a scrap of press-board, a piece of non-slip stuff, some scraps of wood. There are different set-up blocks on the side for quickly setting the correct depths...

  3. Workshop Magazine/Book Storage

    Sometime ago I decided to reorganise my woodworking magazines and books in the Studio. Books were not such a problem as I could put them on one of the metal shelves, but magazines were another thing as they flop if not supported, I have quite a few FWW magazines (Nos 78 to 135) which I have...

    Aches, pains and pallet wood, oh my! Following its recent successful creation, I opted to give Franken-Rack free rein to terrorize the domain. It was my hope that it would bring home the finest lumber in all the land. Instead, it brought me pallet and crate wood. Several times I have berated...

    honing spokeshave blade Found that the honing guide that I use for plane blades and chisels doesn't work on stokeshave blades. The blade from my Stanley no. 151 is too short to get the required 25° angle. Luckily, I had a short piece of steel flat bar with a hole drilled earlier at the right...
