We have had another great couple of weeks for photo submissions and, evidently, the application of elbow grease. Thank you all for sending them in!

Toolchest by Bryson Hillis
I started on this before I found Mr. Seller’s tool chest video, but it is similar. Maple and Cyprus. I’m 17 and this was my first project to use almost no metal fasteners. Thank you Mr. Sellers!

Pine and walnut finished with shellac
Workbench by André
Workbench: made from dimensional SPF, 65cm x 150cm, 97cm high. Finish: two coats of shellac, wax. Eclipse 9″ QR vise with red oak pads. — This was my first big project. It took me two months of weekends to make. Hand planing round corners of knotty two-by-fours was painful but valuable experience. I had to sharpen my plane every half an hour. Squaring the aprons was time consuming: I had to rebuilt them three times because they kept twisting overnight. I can safely say I learned a lot while building this bench by using hand tools only. Despite all mistakes and imperfections, I’m happy now. — When you make your project, remember: Never give up.
Sawhorses by Ian Hemphill
Thanks SO much, Paul. After much chisel,saw,and plane refurbishment and sharpening, I built the sawhorses as my first hand-tool experience. It was so much fun, and I learned a great deal about listening to what the wood has to say. These are from ordinary construction-grade SPF 2 by 4s, and are solid as a rock. Now for a workbench!
