The occasional e-auction win from Mis-spelling

Happy 2021 ! I have an occasional penchant for restoring machinist chests, but they aren't cheap. The last one wasn't a Union or a Gerstner, but a Black & Decker valve-grinding outfit that I re-purposed. That was enough off the usual "search terms" to be cheaper than a Gerstner by a lo...

These are great projects! I especially like how they 'interact' with the furnishing corners.

Re: Organic Wooden Gear Clock

Nice work!
There used to be a 'horologist' member on this forum, but I haven't seen him in a long time.
