My progress on my latest projects (^-^)
The handle for my jointer and my newest acquisition a Stanley No. 20 :)
To be honest I only bought the No. 20 because I wanted to do some metalwork and because I got it really cheap :D
There were many reasons it was cheap :D
It was really really rusty and there was plaster stuck all over it (^-^;)
It was just what I was looking for xD
I didn’t want another smoother, jack or jointer plane so this one seemed like a plane I’d actually use and on which I could play around a bit without feeling too bad if I put on some self made things :3
By badly rusted I mean that the blade and the chip breaker were rusted together and I had to use some tricks to separate them :|
You can see the parts after an initial cleanup and the sole with one rusty and one cleaner side :)
By the way never sandblast spring steel plates ;)
It will make them bow and when you flex it, it will develop cracks and break :)
A part of the sole adjustment mechanism is broken so I need to make some repairs to it :)
The lever of the lever cap just crumbled off so I made a new lever from steel :)
For some reason (know to people who know me personally ;) I put a “H” on the new lever :D
It reminds me of a tadpole (おたま :)
I hope I can use the sandblasting cabin of a friend next weekend so I can clean up the castings and repaint them :)
This tool kind of violates my policy of only buying tools that I really need
Anyway this seems like a very useful tool and I didn’t want to do metalwork that didn’t serve any purpose….
To be honest I very much prefer my Japanese planes when it comes to using them….
Anyway i use it as a kind of guinea pig for metalworking :D
The handle still needs some smoothing and as you can see I didn’t put the “horn” on the handle because I dislike those :)
I hope to finish the handle tomorrow :)

Décanteur d’idées, générateur d’inspiration, stimulateur de creation de par son oeuvre.
Throwback Thursday. 18 months ago ago I started to sell the things I made. This was my first range of utensils. I now supply stores big and small in various parts of the world including Anthropologie UK and Serge Bensimon’s Home Autour du Monde Paris. I have just been signed by a publishing company to write a book, I get asked to teach people and talk at things - including an up and coming TED lecture at the end of this month and I have my own brand tools coming out next year.. I couldn’t ask for more. It’s been a Rad, Brill, Ace year and before the Xmas madness starts.. I’d like to thank everyone who’s supported me along the way - followers, suppliers, friends, family, customers, spoon folk and of course the bearded community. Cheers! 👍 :-) EJ
An inspiration! Well done.
This is known as the New Fangled Workbench, designed by John White, which first appeared in Fine Woodworking magazine in 1999.
Since then several versions/modifications to it have appeared, with examples easy to find via the internet and on YouTube.
The bench is simple to build, using construction grade timber and MDF and requires no glueing. It uses four Jorgensen (or similar) pipe clamps, arranged in pairs for an end vice and front vice. It’s versatility is amazing.
I am currently gathering together all the hardware needed - pipe clamp assemblies, iron pipe, etc - so I can build a small version of it - 5’ x 2’.
