No argument here regarding the importance of timely doses of caffeine.....but isn't that coffee cup sitting on the BENCH? Once again, the bench plays a critical role!

BaileyNo5,

I will respectfully have to disagree... The most important tool in the shop would have to be the coffee cup - without it you would not be able to hold the coffee....

I'm a little late to the party. So many good ideas in here.



Got a lot of user made tools, so I will be selective. This first is not really a tool, but a recent build to hold tools off the bench. The bottom pic is one of my most used tools, the panel gauge. The pencil is when I don't care about accuracy, and I have a scoring attachment for when I do.

......... that's a great line. I usually just take water with me when I am out in the shop.

I modify tools as needed to get a job done but here are a few I made.
Adjustable marking gauge for planking.



A little bronze hammer.



At the risk of outing myself here is a router plane.



A small bench to work on inside a boat.



A couple of knives.



A handheld drill chuck.



A sine bar for setting precsion angles in the table saw.



And a workbench.



I'm sure there are others but no photos yet. Many tools re-handled.

Yup, you did it, although i was pretty sure you were the Secret Santa. The wood, craftsmanship and the return address had me convinced.

And the plane is beautiful! It is so nice I don't want to take out from under the tree. Thanks again!

Jim, what are the dimensions of that bench, please? TIA.

I made these for my SS recipient this year. They are cocobolo handled screwdrivers, using the Lee Valley lifetime screwdriver shafts. The ferrules are 1/2" brass plumbing couplers.

Awesome thread!!! Thanks for thinking of this.

Even seen the spokeshave I received last year from my SS.
