Default Re: A massive thankyou!

Thanks Rutager!
Yes, fine tools can be addictive and I'm going to enjoy that part of owning and using these BCTW tools. Of course, they will be put to work just like my other hand tools. I do feel tools made to these high standards have an effect on the work that's being done..as I said before, their presence on the bench somehow demands it.
Thanks again

The CT-12, in my opinion is the nicest all around BCTW bench plane. It has the articulated cap iron and the inlayed cheek beneath the front tote.

Look forward to seeing your best work,
Rutager

Okami,

It is hard for me to think of another craftsman on this board that would be more deserving of these tools. I do not by any means mean to demean anyone on here because we have some great woodworker's. I just mean that between your talent and inability to buy tools like this you are a perfect choice. Now I cannot wait to hear about your first couple of projects where you also use these tools and see if they make any difference in the quality of your work or the enjoyment of your work.

Rather than explain what these tools do for me, I want to hear what your opinion is as you are a far superior woodworker than I am. I hope to catch up at some point but who knows. The coolest thing to me is that the journey there is worth everything.

Fred

Okami -

Well worth the inspiration we get from your work. Keep posting and we'll keep drooling.

Glad you like the tools -
