I spent all my disposable income for the next year on a very fancy Hammer A3-41 jointer-planer in December. Wanted to take on a small project with it to get more comfortable, and also because it is cold and I didn't want to have to do anything that would involve opening my garage door for any length of time. So a few hours over a few evenings, and I made these: Started with some hard maple, some off-cuts of Padauk I had in the scrap bin, and a rough walnut plank: Couple trips through the jointer-planer later: A whole lot of parts cut out of stock that was resawn and then planed to dimension: A whole lot of clamps and glue: And a little Danish Oil: And I have some mag stands: I will be giving three of them as gifts to friends who also love the 1911. I really enjoyed doing this project, but it made me believe both MagSlab and Zoid grossly undercharge. I probably have $80 in wood chips and sawdust in my dust collection bin.
