Thanks for the great build instructions! I was able to make this in an afternoon. I didn't have a 2x6 so I jointed the edge on a couple of 2x4 segments and glued them up and they worked fine. I also adapted your miter gauge mount for my sled using a couple of 1/4" bolts so I can add or remove the jig from it but be closer on the slot alignment.

Very nice idea. Couldn't you save a step or two by attaching the nuts/washers to the glued-up discs to clamp them while they are initially on the threaded rod and then cutting the rod to length? You should still be able to drill the pin hole by putting the spindle through the hole in the center of the drill press table and swinging it a bit to the side, then putting a plywood spacer underneath the bottom disc to prevent tearout.
Very nice tutorial. When baking you can also substitute 1/4 cup of apple sauce for an egg. The little plastic containers are easy to carry in your pack and hold about a half a cup. If you use sweetened apple sauce be sure to reduce the sugar in the recipe to compensate. Any extra you have for a one-egg recipe can just be eaten as a snack!
You should also take care that you have the straps/belt adjusted so that the pack stays snug against your body. That eliminates a lot of side-to-side and up and down movement which makes you use more energy while hiking.
Nice tutorial. As a beginning woodworker I didn't want to spend a ton on diamond stones so I've been using sandpaper for sharpening plane irons and chisels for about a year with great success. For mounting the sandpaper you can also use a spray-on adhesive with thick MDF since it has a fairly flat surface. Using tape can introduce slight variations in the flatness of the paper. What I eventually wound up doing was to call a friend who makes granite countertops. He had lots of nice flat scrap pieces which were perfect for this and even cut some down to width and length for me.Don't forget to strop your blades when you are done. Glue a piece of leather to MDF and coat it with jeweller's rouge to take the final burrs off and you'll be able to shave with the edges you produce.
