A Sharpening “Horse-Butt” Strop for the Workbench.

We have introduced a new leather strop sharpening system, that uses genuine horse butt leather, for helping maintain the finest edges on edge tools while they work.

Maintaining an edge during the woodworking process provides higher levels of working sharpness from edge tools, promoting accurate cuts and joinery, smoother wood surface finish quality, and saves woodworkers an enormous amount of wasted time regrinding, by avoiding dullness, affordably.

It comes down to convenience. This is very important, because when sharpening isn’t convenient or is too messy, we tend to allow tools to become so dull, that restoring sharpness is a lot of hard work. Dullness is avoidable if we maintain sharpness as we work. Maintaining edge tools should be easy.

Why would we want a strop optimized for our workbench? Most strops on the market today are not optimized for honing woodworking tools well. Some come closer than others, but overall they don’t offer the right combination of leather types, flatness, length or ergonomics all at once. Woodworkers want some options and ease when they maintain their edge tools. Our strop is capable of maintaining tool sharpness, reducing or eliminating the mess, while fixturing itself on the bench where the tools are working.

The Bench End Planing Stop

We’ve had some requests for more information about our new ‘Bench End Planing Stop’, because it works a bit differently than what woodworkers are accustomed to.

Our new Planing Stop is the jointer planes helper, engineered to be a complete planing stop, meant to be easy to set up and use. When you wanna plane, you wanna plane! When you are done planing, simply lower the screws and it’s flush to the bench top. Always ready.

Why would we want to use a planing stop?

The main reason to use a stop when planing is that it offers no cramp to the board. By cramp, I mean clamping the uncorrected board so that some of the wind and twist may become compressed. When you clamp a board that isn’t flat before you attempt to true it, you can flex the wood fibers against a natural wind and actually plane more problems into it than out. Continue Reading »

New Products for 2011, 12, 13 and so on…

And not just 2014, but 2015, 16 and so forth!You get the idea, New products are always in the works and you can find them from here!

Over the past several years of building shooting boards, our product line has grown through thoughts, ideas and suggestions. We have expanded to over a dozen shooting board models and have developed many accessories for them. We continue to work on ways to expand our shooting board’s capabilities. This helps bring more woodworking capability, and better outcomes to bear for the woodworkers who use them.

During this same time, we have developed other tools and jigs for helping take woodworkers further in other aspects of the craft. Why? well because; The lyfe so short, the craft so long to lerne, Th’ assay so hard, so sharpe the conquering. Geoffrey Chaucer from: The Assembly of Fowles. We listen to what woodworkers talk about when they discuss what they feel is difficult for them, or could be more efficient, and what they wished were easier. Then we try to conquer those issues, and make a tool or jig that will address it, and make working wood easier for woodworkers. What this means sometimes is that our tools are not completely traditional, but they do aim high to give you better outcomes in your woodworking endeavors.

Many woodworkers say they want to spend less time making jigs. Some say that they don’t have enough spare time, others don’t have the tools. We listened. Free time these days for most people is limited and precious, so when there is time for woodworking, most people want to maximize their outcomes making great cabinetry and furnishings.
