Very Nice Sjobergs Bench on E Bay now.

 

Browsing E Bay I came across this advert for a Sjobergs bench which looks in excellent condition. It has a  proper face vice which is ideal for dovetailing as well as the best type of end vice. At 5' long it is a good usable size without taking up too much room. It's located in Brighton https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Work-Bench-with-storage-Heavy-Duty-Solid-Wooden-Table-Woodworking-Vice/283988197536?hash=item421f0400a0:g:ZCkAAOSwu7VfQrMH

Box for my Skelton Saws


I made myself a box to house two of my Skelton saws, my Gentleman Jaq gents dovetail saw and my Dual Kerf Starter. These saws are used in tandem so it made good sense to put them in one box.


The sides are English cherry and the panels are from the last of the lovely Honduran Rosewood from which the saw handles were made. The lining is pig suede. An article on the making will be appearing in Furniture and Cabinetmaking magazine shortly.
