Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

What a nice idea, Craig. I'm sure we all have something to offer each other.

That's the sad thing, John: it wasn't the bucket of spit, it was the change in the bucket of spit!

I think I was on my way to lunch, actually.

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

When I began graduate school (lo these many years ago) I had a professor - pretty famous guy - who stopped me in the hall one day. The conversation went something like this:

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

John, I was 27 when that happened. What a year. It was kind of relaxing, in a way: I suddenly realized that:
1) I wasn't going to change the world
2) I wasn't the smartest person ever
3) There...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

Well, he's pretty good. But to do really good woodworking I think he should be hitting things a lot harder with his hammer...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

I wish I were that young again!

On the other hand, I can afford nicer tools!

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

That doesn't look like any part of NY that I've ever seen. Or is that you on vacation, Michael?

Even if you're clean shaven, Fred should be able to recognize you by the fact that your hands hang...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

That was a very cool video, Michael - thanks for posting. I like the idea of a cabinet-making competition. I wish they'd show that sort of thing on TV. The winner certainly used lots of Festools.

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

It's probably the same as "110% effort", or "unique, just like everyone else".

But at least you're man enough to admit your mistakes, Fred!

Must take a lot of time... :brick:

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

Oh Fred. You'll always be a full idiot in my book!

And truth be told, I haven't actually used the LV planes yet. Only the LN ones. They felt great, but didn't have all the features I wanted. I'm...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

I got the A2 blade with the block plane (and the scraper plane) Okamisan. Partly to force myself to learn to sharpen well. I got a nice microbevel on the blade of my LN #4, so I think I'm on the...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

So I spent a bit of time this afternoon trying out the Lie-Nielsen planes. I tried the low-angle block plane with the adjustable mouth, the low-angle block plane with the fixed mouth, the large and...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

Thanks, Fred. I'm worried that the plane might tear the fabric (of the sofa - not our marriage). On the other hand, I've been using it quite a bit to plane the laminations that I've made, and it...

Re: I'm not planeless anymore...

Hi Bob,

I don't have the Stanley 80, but I do have the Veritas scraper holder (Veritas® Scraper Holder - Lee Valley Tools (http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx?c=2&cat=1,310&p=32669)) that does...

Sorry John - here's a picture. I was too lazy to make a new album for it, but I've since relented.
