x2. love the organization. Looks like a comfortable place to work. Great light too!

Yeah...  I work best when things are in their place.  The windows face north.  Fantastic for retouching.  I lucked out.

Reminds me.  I need a hatchet for my purfling channels.  "Looks like you already have one, Julian," says the trenchant observer...

That is for rough arching. When I was in SLC a friend/student would do his rough arching with a hatchet, his rough scooping out the inside with an adze! He was Chinese and had worked in a piano factory.

Thank you.... I'm kind of in heaven.  It's in a building built in 1853.

Homemade saw till.  Made from a fence board and other scraps.

Great, you can grab one quickly if needed to deal with an ornery customer.  :lol:

I've never seen Jeffrey's shop in any state but very tidy. Mine tends to be a little more chaotic, ranging from somewhat messy to medium-tidy. The usual routine is that I will work until I have difficulty finding something. Then I clean up,  put everything away and start making a mess again.

I tend to get cluttered also but sometimes get a wild hair and clean and organize things...   

This is the cluttered version...

A bit untidy but organised. That’s how a workshop should be. I am also organised, just very very messy. 

Is that a magnetic bar for your gouges?

No, it's velcro. :lol:

Since I use steel wool for things like fingerboards, I like to avoid things which could magnetize the cutting edges of tools.

I think that magnetic bars for cutting tools is a bad idea because they will magnetize the cutting edge and  that will attract metal particles to it, playing havoc with sharpening

and cutting. I want a clean cutting edge, and not an edge with metal particles.

Me too!

Magnetic strips for attaching things like screwdrivers and paint can openers might be fine. I don't want them around my hand-cutting tools.

Good Morning all,

Amateur builder here, and my first post.  This is the workbench I am using to make my violins and to store some of the hand planes I have collected over the years.  The pulls for the doors and drawers are violin pegs.

Regards,

Danny
