I don't know, and do correct me if I'm wrong, but it does look as if Bob is working security and keeping a close eye on the planes (and on a suspicious character just behind the camera man) while Fred is looking for a signal from his cohort that the cost was clear...

My Oh MY Fred!
Exquisite, impeccable and incomparable. Those belong upstairs in your living space not down in the workshop. Suggestion: Create a bonfire fueled by your award winning entertainment center and replace it with a lighted display case containing your top ~30 planes with these latest ones of course residing in their proper place on the top shelf.

Beautiful planes, Fred! Amazing workmanship and attention to detail, even shavings, no less!

Yes, those shavings! Wasn't that cool?
I really loved seeing that - such a thoughtful touch.

Sure, we all tell ourselves it's NOT about the shavings...
But we know we all love them nonetheless.

Corwin, alas but my cohort did not give me the correct signal and I had to wait another year and a half.
Ron, getting rid of the entertainment center is a given for this year. However, as beautiful as these planes and my others they are still tools and as such will be used. It will just make it that much more interesting.
Laurie and Alex, I must admit that I too love the touch of sending out shavings with it.

Fred

I had been on the phone with Rutager when this delivery happened and I had to hang up.
No kidding! He was talking to me and his dogs started barking because the delivery guy was approaching the house and he ended the call faster then if he was going into cardiac arrest. I don't believe I've ever had someone end a call so quickly! I can't say I blame him though, those are some beautiful planes! I'm a bit jealous because I placed my order with Konrad before Fred, but the wood for mine isn't dry enough yet.
