Workbench by James Light

Workbench by James Light

Just finished my workbench. Not Paul’s design, but used several of his techniques in building it. At 69 years old I have learned so much from watching his videos and am teaching my 15 year old grandson all I can. All joints are mortise and tenon using Oak dowels to draw pin them together. Wood was all material I have accumulated over the past 40 years, Poplar, Cherry, Black Walnut, Oak and Spruce. Thought Paul would appreciate some of the “upcycling” I did on the vises, using old horse drawn machinery parts.

Dice Rolling Octagon by Peter Gaffney

Dice Rolling Octagon by Peter Gaffney

My friends and I play play dice games and have the trouble of keeping our dice on a table and quiet. I made this octagon out of redwood, pieces of ebony and maple block scraps with a plywood bottom fitted into rabbeted edges with black and white leather lining the inside bottom. I wanted to thank Paul and his team for helping me develop the skills and courage to envision and create little weekend projects like these. I plan on making one this weekend out of walnut and maple as a gift for a friend. I’ll take pictures as I go and upload them.
