    My day job is a full time private practice that runs around 60 hours over 4 1/2 days each week. I only get into the shop on weekends and a Monday afternoon, and generally average about 15-20 hours...

    Warren, my logic agrees with you - this is even more the case with the shoulder plane, which is 60 degrees for planing end grain. However, in practice the HNT Gordon planes work exceedingly well. The...

    This is a specialist chisel. You will generally only need one size ... when it is needed. You do not need a bank of them lined up alongside your bench. The idea is to reduce clutter. One handle with...

    I've been using prototypes of these for a few years now. Very handy chisels when there is a need.

    I have also added a long, Japanese-type slick handle. I'll post pictures at some stage.

    I've done this too, but deliberately when making Möbius dovetails. Well, that's the story I am sticking to :)

    Alan, generally the polycarbonate sheets come covered with a removable, protective film. This should prevent any chipping at the edges of the hole. If there is no film on your sheet, cover the area...

    I have the 12 degree Veritas reamers, plus I made my own 6 degree reamer, tenoner, and a couple of travishers. The 6 degree grips more tightly, which is probably why Pete Galbert uses it. On the...

    Frank, think of these as a rolled up rule. The tab is fixed, unlike a tape measure. They look like a tape measure, but they lie flat rather than become hollowed. You can stretched them out straight....
