You're welcome Mike. It's interesting you linked me to those woods I used, 'cause I've never used them before that plane. The Bubinga I got as part of a bronze hammer swap and the paduke was a cutoff I got from a friends shop. It was a fun project and the first time I tried knurling a knob. These swaps are great place to push the skill set. Based on your post above it's a good thing I didn't make you a screwdriver.

RocJok... I've used that little bench quite a bit I made it about 28 years ago inspired by an article in the April 1941 issue of American Rifleman magazine. The article was called "Another Smallest" maybe someone with stronger Google Fu can find it on line. I tried and failed. If someone wants a copy send me a PM with an email and I'll send them a scan. The original called for a box and drawers accessed from the back. I still might build per the article.
The dimensions of top is 8 1/4" X 19" X 1 5/16" the height is 7 3/8" the legs are 1 3/4" square. Here is another photo or two.

Come on everyone, let's keep this going.
We do not care if they are plain or fancy.

There are a lot more tools out there waiting to be added to the list


Please post yours!

I'll play, although you saw and plane guys are kind of stealing the show here.

Hard maple mallet:




L to R, osage orange, purchased sapodilla, persimmon, older osage, the hard maple. Background includes some persimmon chisel handles.




I agree we should include benches:

It may work like one, but that's not a tool. It is Art, plain and simple. Amazing work.
