Quite the collection! Everyone gets their own? (which is an idea I really like).
I'll throw in my request for how you're doing the tapers
I've done them with both a belt sander and a hand plane. For repair work (which of the dozen or so peels I've touched that was most of it) I actually found the hand plane faster because I didn't have to sand out the fuzz after. That was usually only doing one or two board replacements though, so doing the whole sweep I could see it going either way depending on the wood and your comfort level with the respective tools. If there's a better way.. I'm certainly interested
