    Hello Darren,

    Sorry, I didn’t see your question until now.

    I’ve watched the video again (thanks for the link Thomas) but I didn’t hear him mention the interlocking floor matting. I’m wondering if it might have been one of his saw sharpening videos?

    Paul doesn’t actually show us the matting he uses, he just briefly mentioned it and said it saved one of his saws from the concrete floor when he dropped it.

    … I also have rubber mats along my bench as the floor beneath is concrete and drops of other tools can happen all too quickly.


    A few months ago I submitted a post called “hairline crack on a 5 1/2 WODEN plane”. I found a picture of a guy who repaired a plane cracked on the side, kind like your one, applying a patch of brass sticked with epoxy glue. I stop did not try it on my cracked plane, anyway I read many positive comments regarding that solution, so I will apply it sooner or later. It might work for your plane too and it is a pretty cheap repair.

    Take care and good luck with your woodworking.

    Sorry for your loss.
    Lots of talk about mats – good idea to have, reminds me I need to put them back down.
    But no talk on whether the bench should rock, or should be be rock stable!
