    I love using my planes!

    I had to clean up some wood that had been exposed to the weather yesterday. I started with my scraper and my spokeshave, but I wasn't really happy with my progress, so I got out my smoother plane, still tuned and sharpened from last year. Now the driveway is full of long shavings. It just zips along the full length of the pieces, sounds good and feels better!

    In the course of things, I noticed blood dripping from my right little and ring fingers. I stopped to clean it up, and put a bandaid on it. I had bumped my little finger against God knows what, and opened a hole about 2mm in diameter. If the first day of the year is a harbinger of things to come, it should be a good year for woodworking.
    Cheers,
    Roger

    As an aging woodworker, I'm constantly bumping my hands and opening small wounds. Just have to keep a box of bandages hand to keep from staining the project.

    I do plan to drop in one of the times I come by, but my daughter has just last week moved to Chicago. Also my wife will not visit internet people, so I'll be on my own, or with my son. And if I'm flying, I refuse to jump out of the plane just to drop in on anyone.

    Yeah - I love a hand plane too.

    I was in the shed trying to guess what wood I was sorting - MAN - the hand plane is just soo simple.

    larry is the furthest thing from an internet person.
    hes genuine and a real gentleman.
    and I am one of the most paranoid people when it comes to meeting anyone from the internet, but every person Ive met in person on this board has an open invitation to visit my home anytime they want. good people. down to earth. friendly. personable.
