Bedside Cabinets by Mike Conner

Bedside Cabinets by Mike Conner

Bedside cabinets in cherry. Decided to forgo the knob on the cabinet door in favor of a notch for finger pulls. Tops are made from a single wide cherry board that had a surprising amount of figuring.


Dovetail Box by Mike Conner

Router Planes by Trevor Molyneux

Router Planes by Trevor Molyneux

Paul Sellars Routers. All routers are made from beech with cherry handles. The two regular ones are exactly as Paul Sellars design using the PS kits. The others are smaller as a replacement for my 722 routers. They use 7mm cutters and M5 hardware. The base is 200mm wide and 18mm thick. I made one of the latter ones very short at the front so the cutter is level with the front of the router at 3mm depth. I am having to replace cheap nasty hinges in my house and needed to be able to use my router right up to the door jamb. They are perfect for this and I’ve already used them several times. Far better than paring the recess.

Hand Plane Tote and Front Knob by Mac Coombs

Hand Plane Tote and Front Knob by Mac Coombs

I found a rusty, old, hand plane at a flea market for $5. The handles were missing and the screws bent. The new handles I made from an old pallet. I think they are hickory. It took me three tries to get the hole drilled for the rear handle. Paul, you make it look so easy. Thanks!

Router Plane by Tobias Bauer

I made the body from an unknown hardwood (African, maybe Sipo or Sapelli?) I received as a gift from a friendly carpenter. I rasped and filed the handles by hand from a large branch of hornbeam. Finished with clear shellac, metal pieces from Paul’s kit. It works flawlessly and more than matches my Veritas router plane.


Coasters by Matt Sims
