Early American Wing Back chairs and blanket chestThe wooden wing back chairs and blanket chest plans came from a Rodale book on early american furniture.

I needed somewhere to put all of the small parts that one needs to sharpen a saw so I built the parts “till” that sits below the vise. The rough carving is supposed to represent the word “Saw” with the “S” forming a carved saw handle.

Plane Till for a single planeI made a couple of these small Plane Tills as gifts and put an inexpensive plane from Hbr Frt in them . I kept one as inspiration – the engraved plaque saying reminds me to do my best with whatever I put my hands to. Surprisingly the plane actually works quite well for an el cheapo
