      Hi Carl - coffee works well for me. Can't start the day in the shop without a big mug to set me up and the grounds have got me out of a fix a couple of times when I've needed to touch up a knock on a stained item. For tools though I'd be lost without a decent universal or combination square - the sort generally used by engineers which include a level and scribing pin as part of the deal. At the last count I have three in the shop so I can always lay my hands on at least one when the other two go missing after I've absentmindedly put them down somewhere - which I often do!

      Just had a rethink and one item which I've used a lot in the past and need to use a heck of a lot now as the years clock up is a good small magnifying lens! Without this I have no idea which way the finer reverse tooth blades are pointing!!!!

            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

            I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

            FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

            Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

            I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
