Thread: A Planeing experience

    A Planeing experience

    Thought my planes were sharp, till I tried to shape a flat piece of Hard Maple... Excuse me.... I was neglecet in my maintainance... But soon a stroke or many on the stone and back in business. Geeze the Cardiovascular exercise is much appreciated as I have been loosing upper body strength of late, I guess from my slothness and lazy ways. (is that one of the seven deadly sins?)

    Pictures of the mass of shavings tomorrow, to prove my existance, (no picture/never happened)

    Resting between sessions and remembering the joys of planing, the sound of a plane slicing wood is unmistaken.

    must agree, much more comforting than having curly pieces come of one of those spinny things)

    +1 on the plane sounds and it happens at a slower rate than the spinny thing so you got more time to think with a grey hair brain.
    cheers
