Fun with Scrubby, Jack and John

Well, I have to admit it, I was dreading flattening the new workbench top. But it turned out to be kinda fun. With aid of Scubby (the wooden scrub plane), I was able remove all the high spots from the top. Then Jack (the shorter Jack plane, of course) leveled things out.Last, the jointer plane made it all flat and pretty. There are still a few scrubby tracks that need to be removed, but I’ll get to those later. For now I have a really nice and flat top to
start making my drawers and wall cabinet on. Yippee!

Here’s the finished product:

Ready, set … wall cabinets!

So I made a space for my tool wall cabinet in the garage and in the process did a through cleaning and a modest bench upgrade so that I can do a lot of the future projects with hand tools. And I will be finding an new location for the toy (the Jet planer/jointer).











I’ll be doing another wall cabinet for the bathroom. Busy, busy, busy!

Oh, wondering about the end tables? They’re on their 3rd coat of finish. Pictures soon .. and no, I haven’t made the drawer yet.
