    Here's an idea

    Looking for a bow for that last minute present. Why not use the off fall ribbons from a hand plane. Guy posted some pictures on G+. Makes a neat ribbon and bow.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    sounds great to me,, and you can have fun making the curlies to get the ribbon made from too.. and any left overs work for packing in the box to keep it from moving around to much

    I think that curly shavings make for great pictures too.

    Hey not bad Bill. This guy actually made the bows and ribbons. Close to the same thing. Different guy though.

    Bart, Are you just plane happy with all of those shaving makers?

    I had a store front in Claremont, CA. Next door was a place called Serendipity. They sold all sorts of educational toys for children and unusual toys for adults also. They had one section that contained things made from wood shavings. There were birds, animals, and at Christmas time, nativity scenes.

    These were beautiful, though delicate, pieces of work. See this thread brought out the nostalgia in me.

    Enjoy,

    JimB
