Default Spill plane from Lee Valley

Check this out: Spill Plane - Lee Valley Tools

I'd never even heard of one of these until I saw this. Those spills are really beautiful. Might make nice decorative elements on wreaths or something. Also great for those of us with fireplaces...

.....and it makes beautiful curly carrots!

The idea of spills is brilliant.

Here is a page of early American glass spill holders.

That's an interesting set up. I've rarely seen an original at any old tool events over many years. They would make a neat addition, even if for a limited purpose.

I am a member of CRAFTS here in NJ. Here is a page reprint from our newsletter with more information on these planes and photos of some various examples from the past.

The club is having it's last meeting of 2009 this weekend on Sunday morning in Highbridge, NJ. Just up Rt.31 off Rt.78. Check the link above if you're interested. Plenty of quality old tools for sale before the meeting in the parking lot.

Here's the subject for the meeting from the website... "The guest speaker for the November meeting will be Dennis Menscer, owner of Little River Rods, maker of handcrafted bamboo fly fishing rods who will demonstrate the techniques and steps in building a cane (bamboo) fly fishing rod from start to finish."

These would come in really handy at BBQ contests.

So many fires. It would save a few matches.

What a nifty item!
You could get one for Gillian as a pre X-mas gift.
Then she could make bundles of spills and put them into your larger BCTW & LN boxes with a nice ribbon and hand them out as presents to the family and friends.
(providing they have fireplaces of course.)

one could take the spills and soak them in water mixed with orange rinds, (that shouldn't effect the spill) for a nice fragrance when it burns.




hmmm, that's actually a thought.

Peter,

Let's just hang on a dang minute har. I jest larned about dem today. Sew dis har bat mouttin aboot me jest need ta stop. Ya no wot eye meen???

Seriously beautiful tool and makes me sad as my house came with two GAS fireplaces which I hate. I love the smell, sound and sight of a real fire even if I have to burn a building or two down.

Fred

Just think of the nifty artsy things that could be made using spills!

Laurie -- CHOCOLATE SPILLS?!?

If you're in a do-it-yourself sort of frame of mind, you might find this interesting . . .
