Welcome to 2022, another year that sounds like it’s from the future, but which turns out to be happening right now. Once again, our generous community contributors have furnished us with a multitude of exciting gallery submissions, so do take a look!
Workbench by Wouter Engels
40″ tall – Plywood workbench – handtools only. I really liked the look of the plywood workbench, so I decided to build it using my saw. It probably needed a lot more plyning than Paul’s but my sawing has improved a lot.
Paul’s Router Plane by Tyrone Russ
Router plane in birch and walnut. Paul’s impeccable timing saved me spending $170 or more on a new one, and I get the satisfaction of having made it!
Wallclock by Thomas Snowdon
A variation on Peter’s wall clock, made for my daughter as a house-warming gift
Frame Saw by Christian Kayser
I made the frame saw from oak that used to be a big doorstep from a building I worked on. It is very much 1:1 to Paul’s frame saw, only it’s fitted to a longer and wider blade.
World’s Best Router Plane by mitown
I used off cuts of Beech, left over from another project, which I bought from the Oxford Wood Recycling centre. The base is slightly under thickness at 7/8″. The three notches for the depth adjuster wheel were the result of a mistake I made, but does ensure the blade can be fully retracted. Adjuster wheel notches are wider than on Pauls drawings to accommodate my thicker adjuster wheel. It all works perfectly – thank you Paul!
Fly Swat by Marija Neskovic
Fly swat made in combination of ash, black walnut and oak.

Side Table by Kered Winder
Side Table, American Rose Ash. Piston fit Draw and Door with hand crafted handles. The construction uses wedged Mortice and Tenons with Rail and Stile back panel plus hand routered rebates. Very challenging to make but the result gives me grate satisfaction.

This Hand mirror was made with curly maple and black walnut inlay. This was a Christmas gift for my daughter Adaline.
Router Plane by Stefano Passiglia
Router plane based on Paul Sellers design. The body is beech, I had a scrap 10x100mm board and I laminated three pieces for the body and two pieces for the iron holder. Iron is C45 steel, hardened and tempered. Kitchen knobs are beech too. Thumb wheels were the most difficult parts to source, but I think they match really well the shellac finish.

The Paul Sellers router plane, and a small block plane in Sapele.
Pauls Sellers’ Router Plane by Tyrone Russ
Paul Seller’s Router Plane. Birch base, handmade walnut knobs. O1 cutter, mild steel lock bar.

Wooden Plane by Sebastiaan
Router plane – inspired by the latest videos but slightly different (following old example I saw on Ebay). Used old beech chair frame for the wood, hence the inlay (mahogany I think) in the old matting groove. Used a loose inset to house the blade, not the prettiest but works, could have different ones for different size blades, I suppose. Connector nut drilled through and tapped for depth adjustment.
Breadboard-end Cutting Board by fasaxc
Breadboard-end cutting board in sapele and oak. A surprisingly tough project!
Dining Chair by Cindy Ballreich
Dining Chair made from white oak and finished with Danish Oil and wax. This is my most complex project to date and I had a great time building it.
Coffee Table by Rich Vogel
Used cherry. Put oil varnish over shellac on top. Especially liked the curves in Paul’s design.
Footstool by Colby Campbell
This white oak footstool is the final piece of furniture for the nursery I built for my daughter. Thanks to Paul and team I now have an entire room full of heirlooms I can pass on to my daughter when she has children of her own. I can’t thank you enough.
Baby’s Cot by Paul
while the basic design and construction follows Paul’s, I have redesigned the ends to have a half ply panel instead of a full one. this required and additional rail and slats. the top rail curved profile was taken from the corner post template. I have also included a slot to store an Allen Key to be available when the height if the cot needs changing.
Coasters by Kurt Schultz
Sellers’ Home Coasters next to my first coaster set from a few years ago. Great exercises/lessons in planing, and sawing square. Then dealing with all the opposite grain directions, end grains- really got me to slow down to feel and then react appropriately – though not always! I used the band saw a few times and found I had better accuracy and control doing the coaster cross cuts by hand for the same amount of time. Took Paul’s tip to work on the “V” before cross-cutting the base from the blank.
Coasters by Matt Sims
Scrap wood coasters. 100% reclaimed wood, Pine, oak and meranti. Coasters finished in shellac and water based varnish, container finished with shellac and wax.

Coasters by Rafał Dymecki
A set of coasters, I didn’t have much colored wood, I had some scraps left so I made what I had. Made of ash, white oak and red oak. The finish is food grade oil.
Garden Table, Benches and Stools Set by Trevor Molyneux
It is 2m long, so is big enough for a couple of families to all sit together. It is made from pine and the frames on all pieces are alike apart from double stretchers and dimensionally stouter on the table. The frames are painted with translucent jacobean walnut barn paint and the tops with a light oak stain followed by tung oil and finally several coats of Polyvine decorators flat varnish to give it some UV protection. I wanted a garden set that was constructed like real furniture but the overall finish was kept slightly rustic to make it fit in the setting.
Wooden Tray by Matt Sims
Small tray. all scarps and all reclaimed; Pine, oak and meranti. Wax on varnish, with self adhesive cork on base.
Breadboard-end Cutting Board by Tim F
Maple and cherry with a tung oil finish. No glue used, so fingers crossed it lasts as long as the Penryhn castle piece! Thank you Paul.
Wooden Router Plane by Becky B’s Dad
Wooden router plane made from ironwood. My dad made the plane and the metal parts. The hanger bolts are the only store bought parts. I printed the plans from the site and showed them to my dad. He made it from the plans and gave it to me. The only bought parts were the hanger bolts. He fabricated the metal and brass parts.
Trestle desk by Nathan Fletcher-Jones
This trestle style desk I made from a combination of hoop pine, radiata pine and old growth forest pine. It is a prototype and was built primarily to work from home because of the pandemic. I am happy with the outcome but probably change a few things. Thanks to Paul for all the lessons I’ve learnt from him which has helped me to express ideas through the medium of timber. Sanded to 400 grit and finished with a water based poly.
Toolchest by David McCracken
Cherry & Maple Tool Chest
Workbench by Mark Eaden
Finished at last! The ‘white-wood’ is reclaimed scaffold boards (probably spruce), planed true and laminated. The front apron is (very) hard wood from three and a half feet of reclaimed kitchen worktop, ripped, spliced and re-laminated (you can probably see the join). New vice (could not find one used at any price!) with oak jaws, again reclaimed. Castors to raise the bench from the damp floor and wheel outside when the weather is fine… Only the long cuts used power tools, otherwise everything else using hand tools – thank you Paul, it has been great fun!
Dovetail Box by Joe Leonetti
Dovetailed (half blind) box made of cherry and maple to hold tea bags. Finished with shellac.
