Forget the carving.. Have you seen the plane?
Five seats tonight! I still have 7 seats for tomorrow, but we will be out of boxes after the ones that I carved tonight go out. However, I have been working on making my own wood plan for the last couple of days. I finally got it completely assembled and now have to fine tune it to make it work properly. This was not made from a kit, but rather scraps of wood that I had in my shop. I figured if I built it poorly, I could always start over. Believe it or not, it works! Sort of. I get about one stroke out of it before the iron slips. I probably have to redesign the wedge. Oh well! I will have plenty of time to tinker with it and It might come in handy later on. I most likely will not use it for any major jobs, just small ones, like flattening a dowel or rounding over an edge. I still have to shape it a bit as well.
