Gawd I feel inadequate.

If you can make something that nice you should treat yourself to a better tablesaw.

plane from scrap

left over beechwood from my bench build. 20" long 1-5/8" blade from a bench plane for now. drilled the first hole wrong. Tried to give it a nautical look but it looks like a plain jane. I'll carve the end to look like the handle with a "duck tail" Thing is... IT WORKS! And really WORKS as jointer type plane!

Needs a proper blade and chip breaker. The handle (not attached yet.) I made from white oak copied from a bench plane also. I need a knob for the front.

don't forget that is for a 15 foot boat, so it may not scale that well up, though Brent Swain claims he can make one for $20.

And here's a link that helped me make a composting toilet for my vessel. So easy and no hassle, I've read far too many horror stories about conventional heads on boats. Even got the admiration of the USCG haha

Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

Indeed I did - that is one of the sweetest workbenches I've ever seen.

I'm not worthy.

Well I got to thinking and this is what I came up with! Scrap cherry and tiger maple.


bread board edge 3/4" mortise and slot



Just need come up with a hold down that is not attached to the board since it's a cutting board in actuality.
Don't you scratch that workbench!
