Bench Grinder Tool Rest
This little tool rest was one of our first projects, way back in the old Blue Collar Woodworking show days. Since then it has become one of our most popular, with so many requests for plans that we decided to give in and make some! It is fully adjustable and designed to be used with the Veritas grinding jig- (though it can also be used on its own). There's a slot in the top platform that allows you to move the jig side to side as you grind, and the whole platform also advances forward and back, a handy feature that no other tool rest I have seen has!

You can help support all the woodworking goodness Stumpy and the gang does by purchasing a set of plans for this project! A HUGE amount of work went into designing and building it, including 3D modeling, creating and testing prototypes, making changes and doing it all again... why go through all that trouble when you can follow Stumpy's detailed plans? They include dimensional drawings, materials/cut lists, exploded views, even photographs and step by step instructions! You can download them to a computer, tablet or phone, even print them out to take with you into the shop.
