    Paul, I saw a small tool chest from you in Pinrest (two drawers on top and open storage on the bottom). Are their plans available for it or smilar tool chest, maybe a bit larger? thanks

    1. The plans are not available and I do have two sizes I make this toolbox to. I use both sizes in my shop and have used them for decades now. i designed them 30 years ago now and find I can store all of my daily-use tools in the two sizes.

  2. I’m a newbie to your blogs and you tube videos and I’m completely converted to the Renaissance of hand working skills.

  3. Paul,
    Have you made a video showing how you sharpen card scrapers? If not, could you please make one? I’ve changed my chisel & iron sharpening to your method and it’s easier, producing a much better edge. I’ll bet you have a better way to do card scrapers.

  4. I was wondering what thickness of stock do you start with when making your Quadrant scraper and your wooden spoons as noted in your artisan book?

    When making a dovetail joint, which one do you cut, first the tails or the pins. Also, on a drawer, the pins do go on the front and back? When watching most woodworks demostrating the process they just jump into making the cuts without explaning where the tails and pins go on the box.

  6. Paul, why do you opt for a laminated workbench top as opposed to a plank top as shown on many examples of “traditional English” work benches a/k/a Nicholson Workbench?

  7. Hello Paul
    I am trying to follow your path in wood working! I have been watching your videos for a few years now and I have learned a lot of good stuff from you so much. I was wondering if you could make a project using mold planes? I seen your videos about making the clock was very nice, I don’t see much out there about actually building something with trim made with mold planes.
    I really your Q & A .
    Your student

    Unrelated question about workbench. My apron is 1.5 inches. Your daido housing depth for the leg is 5/8. Should I remain the same or decrease it by one eighth.
    I am new to woodworking and this project and your lessons and demos are enlightening. Thank you Paul
