    Jason, you are comparing apples with oranges.

    The bottom line is that diamond stones are available in coarse grits, generally topping out at 1200 grit. There are finer stones available, such as...

    While I am posting, it appears that I omitted to post Drawer #1 when this was completed. Probably because it was not especially clever.

    Thomas, the chisels find uses for different tasks. A wide one may be used to level a dowel or raised section. A narrow one may smooth a groove. A medium one can reach into the corner of a rebate.

    Hi Mike

    I've heard (sic) great things about both the Empire and Jelco. What cartridge? I had a Rega 3 some years back. A classic. Now I run a highly modified Thorens TD150/Rega RB300/Supex 900...

    Jim, in actuality I have a small space. Storage is mostly at the rear of a double garage. Over three decades of serious woodworking, until now, I have only ever built quick-and-dirty cabinets for...
  9. The final drawer of the underbench cabinet.

    I finally managed to start, and to complete, drawer #10 of the underbench cabinet ... the last drawer!

    That looks great, Mike. I'm guessing that the Cherry will darken and the Walnut lighten over time ... perhaps come to look much the same and lose the contrast. Good choice of grain direction...

    Chuck, round knobs can loosen with all planes when they are tightened by fingers. A better method would have been thumb screws. What I have done on all my knobs is add a slot for a screwdriver. Here...

    Thomas, my preference would be the Veritas Small Plow. You will need to add the T&G kit to it. If the cost is a factor - and I have no idea of this - then the Stanley #45 is a definite option … but...

    The back will only prevent racking. It will not help resist the sides bowing outwards.

    You need a brace which pulls the sides inwards. This is why I suggested a stretcher (hidden below a shelf) at...

    I have a 10.8v (Festool C12), which is rated 12v in the USA. I think that this has 1.5 ah batteries. This is perfect for a workshop, for drilling and driving, with two batteries. 10.8v may sound low,...

    Bill, it appears to me that that issue is the bowed sides, and that these need to be reinforced to ensure that the shelves do not drop out if the sides continue to move.

    I would not use dowels,...

    CBN is safe to grind all steel, except mild steel or unhardened/annealed steel. If the grit does become clogged (by grinding these soft metals), then grind hard steel to clear it.

    Ian, I think it comes down to how serious an amateur woodworker you are, and how deep is your pocket.

    Richard, while it can be done with hand tools, the real answer is not to try. Ply is a composite board designed for the power industry. As mentioned, the glues will damage the steels in hand tools,...

    Tom, simply place the back of the blade on a rest, which could be a rectangular length of wood. That will lift the blade off the bench and the flat blades will prevent them rolling. Not to mention,...
