Sunny Sunday in the School Shop

Sometimes, working on the weekends feels good...


  1. Yes indeed. Say, what is that death stop attachment that you are using called? I need to get one of those.

  2. Julio - Thank you!

    Marilyn - Thanks!

    That one is a Stanley #47. Not nearly as well known as the #49, but much better to use. It is much easier to adjust, and it doesn't gouge the work surface like the #49 often does.

    I don't use the stops much, but this job was a little finicky and the wood was inconsistent. Normally I just do a test bore and count the revolutions. This works great most of the time, but for some reason this bench top was being argumentative, so I brought in the 47 and it worked like a charm.

  3. Yeah! Thanks for the bonus information as well! I'm seeing some large work bench mortise in my future and this could come in very handy.

  4. Marilyn - You're welcome! Sounds like fun!

  5. I have to admit this is why I like doing finish carpentry.there is definitely craft in it, most certainly skill required.
