    I like four side access to my modestly sized bench, so I built a shallow sideboard against the wall behind the bench for tool storage. It works ok. I’m continually refining it. The next project will...

    I had a Japanese saw for a time. It cut like a laser, but I couldn't keep it straight. It was suggested all I needed was lots of practice. I have a much easier time with Western saws.

    I use the plastic cases for my LV irons. My LN spares sit in a felt lined drawer with the edge protected by the congealed goo it ships with. Others (plow plane irons) just sit in a drawer....

    My stones are of the "spritz and go" variety so I don't need a sink. Good thing as my shop doesn't have one. I just set these in a silicone tray that catches all the drippings.

    Sharpening Stone Holder

    I found a good deal on sharpening stone holders while watching a "Stumpy Nubs" YouTube review. For under $15 they're tough to beat. It's nice to get the stones elevated out of the mess. LINK (no...

    Yup, going with a dust mask to finish the project and I won't be using Makore again. I used a Neti Pot to flush out my nose and all is well now.

    I had the same quandary. I had heaps of offcuts just waiting for a project and taking up space. Then I met a bladesmith that can use them for knife scales and such. Now he has heaps of offcuts just...

    Gorgeous work Derek. I agree that it's nice to work with. This is the first frame I built with it a few years back. I don't remember it causing this much distress last time.

    Irritating wood

    I'm making a simple frame out of some Makore (African Cherry) and finding that the sawdust is quite the irritant. Even using Neander methods, my nose is burning and I got a headache after a couple...

    My point was that I don't see population as a problem currently. It's another manufactured crisis. All I hear about is what "could" or "might" happen if any number of speculative events take place....

    Nice job. I did the same Taboret (Stickley #603) last year about this time. Mine is QSWO.

    I really love the Cherry, and especially that finish.
