    Call me lazy

    I finished up a pair of 9 pane cabinet doors last weekend – finished except for squaring up the 72 corners… Well, after hand chiseling a dozen or so corners I pulled out the plastic and ordered a Bullnose/chisel plane from Lee Valley and while I was at it I got the edge-trimming plane too. They both worked great right out of the box. I was really impressed with the quality and finish, particularly on the Bullnose.
    Anyway, here’s the required pic.

    Ken, the front section comes off and it becoms a chisel plane. I think it would work great in cherry & softer woods, this white oak is pretty tough though..

    I think I'm going to use balsa as the primary wood on my next project.

    I am sure that the palnes will come in Handy Bruce. And, I certainly think that you are not being lazy.
    Cheers, Frank

    Stealth gloat there! Good haul Bruce. I've never been disappointed with anything from Lee Valley.

    That bullnose has been sitting on my LV Wish List for a while now. Maybe I should just get off the fence and DO IT.

    Doug,
    It's been on my wish list for awhile too. They never seem to go down in price.

    That fence was getting just too uncomfortable wedged in where it was. So I just placed my order and I'm officially blaming it on Bruce Page.
    I've been looking at it as an alternative to my Stanley #93 which often just feels too big to me for tenon trimming. Plus I like the idea of being able to convert to a chisel plane for getting into corners.
