RE: Daily Bench Shot - Belle City Woodworking - 03-19-2019




That literally is my bench shot - as that 8/4 hard maple will be my new bench.  

After stickering and acclimation to the shop, I will get started on milling up the new bench.  

I am shooting for a 4" thick bench top with a Lie-Nielsen tail vise, and I'm leaning towards a twin screw face vise but the jury is still out on that one.

I'm looking forward to a build thread!

Very  Cool

Another vote for a build thread. I need to build a second small bench for the new shop, do I’ve watching.

Peter- nice looking planes. An infill is my dream smoother. Maybe some day.

In the process of fine tuning the equipment after the move. Small projects have tight tolerances, so are a good way to check setups. Finished a box project for the wife out of maple and cherry.

Another small project that helped me fine tune the shooting board was a mitered album frame made out of mdf and scrap exotics. The design provides a slot to slide in a different album, while hanging on the wall. My son is into old records and their artwork.

After a few small projects, next is a media console.

Thanks, John

I find that more and more I'm growing to dislike bevel up planes because of how sharpening them seems to be harder and more material needs to be removed.

Then I thought I could build a plane (infill) for cheaper than I could buy one... I was wrong

I don't understand why sharpening bevel up planes shoud be any harder than for bevel downI have used both for more than 20 yrears and haven't noticed any difference,  Perhaps we are doing things differently but it's hard to think what it might be. why should it be necessary to remove more material?  Any thoughts anyone?
