I watched an episode of the Woodwright Shop recently with Chris Schwartz joining Roy Underhill. The show was about planes and planing. They were going on and on about extremely fine shavings. On Another thread on this site, the folks were discussing making thin shavings with their well tuned planes.
That got me thinking; I believe that many of us using hand tools, it's more about process than creating a product. I think that some folks that have 2,000 sq ft of shop filled with power equipment are more tuned in to the product, the end result.
What do ya think?
By the way, it doesn't really matter. I have a friend that has a really neat shop. Lots of power tools, great, well organized storage. I don't think he has ever built a thing. I don't know if he even has any wood. His hobby is creating his shop; that's his thing; that's what turns his crank. It's a hobby for heaven's sake!!
