Tony from The Vintage Screw Company contacted me about the traditional range of screws he sells.
They are new old stock made many years ago by Nettlefolds and GKN.
Although they may not look much a quick rub on some fine abrasive will have them looking like new. Of course if you are restoring antique furniture they are perfect just as they are.
Quantities start very low and prices are reasonable.

The wood is quarter sawn beech and the execution is superb. Click on the pictures to expand, take your time and enjoy!

Chris sent me these pictures of some of the fine guitars he has made.


Very nice detailed stringing.
 And a personalised inlay.


A twin version, that looks difficult!



 and a very nicely made dovetail marker, not easy in padouk and hard maple.

Shawn from Maryland sent me pictures of his home made magnetic guides. He has done a fine job and I'm sure they work very well.

The carcass for the box needs to be as stable as possible for accurate fitting and minimum movement over time. Finding properly quarter sawn timber is not easy over a width of 250 mm (10"). Most of the kits will be made up from booked matched timber such as the olive ash above. But a couple of kits will be made from full width lacewood (London Plane) which is bang quarter sawn and quite stunning. I believe they call this sycamore in the US.
Note the blue masking tape on the book matched board is acting as clamps, when the edges are shot to a perfect fit stretched tape is all that's needed.

A very enjoyable weekend making dovetails. Chris, Julie, Roger and Michael were all new to dovetails and all did extremely well.


Chris brought this fine shooting board plane which he made. It has bocote sides, wenge centre and extra weight was added to both ends with brass weights. He used a Veritas blade and adjuster kit which worked very well.

Matt sent me these pictures of a very nice little side table he made in quarter sawn oak. The proportions are good and the tapered legs are very elegant.


It has nicely dovetailed drawers and it's nice to see the rear has received the same love and attention.

Leif Karlsson makes traditional Scandinavian work benches in Sweden, I am lucky enough to own one. They are made 'in the old way' with machinery that looks just as old. In the video he is making a small batch for a wooden boatbuilder in Norway.
Leif is winding down now, so if you want a bench you'd better ask him nicely and be prepared to wait.
