Knife and block for my son's birthday. Flat ground 12C27 steel, G10 scales. Used the laser engraver at the local 'makerspace' for the logo in the wood.

Cheers
Richard

Those are cardboard boxes, I found a guy on gumtree selling 60 of them for £10 so I snapped them up, a lot of my turnings fit in them so use them when I sell stuff.
Thats actually the corner of my livingroom on top of the dog crate, stuff tends to get put there until we find somewhere to put it. As today is payday most of those pots and my podlets will be going into the staffroom tomorrow for the teachers and TAs to buy.

The podlets are in the garage because I want them to distort, the bowls, plates etc get brought into the house, the gas meter is on the back wall of the garage because my supply and the school supply split at that point so school gas meter is to the right of mine.

Last weekend, I made a pair of tapered irons, just freehand ground like the older ones were - but starting with bar stock. they are O1, tempered around 61/62 hardness and ground from about .1 on the thin end to .18 or so on the fat end.

the backs have a little bit of curvature in them like the old irons did, to ensure that the iron beds on the right part of the plane bed even with minor wear or seasonal movement.

They're for wooden planes, but will work in infills. I'm not aware of anyone grinding this curvature into wooden plane irons now - japanese may still have some geometric bias in them, but I mean western makers. I don't expect anyone will. It takes about 45 minutes to grind one of these down freehand, cut the slot and get it in heat treatment.

last picture is the reflectivity of the beech board being planed- the same edge sitting under the infill plane and then a reflection of the individual LEDs from above. It's nice to test clarity of the initial edge even though it's been pretty harshly ground and then see if the edge develops any defects in planing or if it will leave a nice clear surface even though the edge could use a little more refinement.

My first contribution.
A decrepit hatstand.
Bent and twisted in parts, especially one leg, just like me.
A work of love for the daughter.
Made a couple of scrapers from an old hoarded Bacho hardpoint saw blade.
Had to make the base since it was missing.
Used salvaged and hoarded for 25 years brass screws.
Finished with Osmo.
Marcus, the hat.

EDIT:
To add, the first coat of Osmo had just been applied in the att. image of the new base.
And, I just remembered I refused to take an old hot cylinder to the scrappie when scrap copper was stupid high, so I intend to unroll it and form a tray to fit inside the base to catch the non existent drips from the non existent umbrellas.
Fingers crossed.
Marcus, the hat
