    I like my #7. I found a super clean type 19 with rosewood knob and tote a few years back. It was in pristine condition save for a replacement (much older) lever cap. The bottom is flat and the mouth...

    I have the best luck shaving in the shower with a suction cup shaving mirror. I use BIC Flex 4 disposable razors and either Creamo or King of Shaves. Creamo is a little more traditional in that it...

    First off, a 175' drive calls for a plow truck. Second choice would be a big honking snow blower. A drive that long amounts to almost 3/4 of a mile of clearing path for a 24" blower. Unless I was...

    My benchmark is “what does the wood surface look like after planing?” Shaving thickness and length is a fun pursuit, but at the end of the day a plane is intended to change stock thickness and/or...

    I always found opossums to be indiscriminate killers. We had more that one decimate our henhouse when I was a kid. We'd follow the feather trail back to the tree they were nesting in and extract them...

    That's what I've heard. I've always had better luck with a Glazier's Knife (variant on a putty knife). After living in a 1920 era home with a boatload of wood double hungs needing rebuilding I got...

    I had a #75 Bullnose. The only thing it did well was fill a small space in a drawer. I tuned it to the level of a Swiss watch. The cutter was honed to a razor's edge. It didn't matter. It didn't work...

    Interesting. I have a LV version of the same plane. Not the gorgeous bronze, but still a neat little gizmo. I don't use it often, but it does see use. Nothing else in the kit will do what it does. No...

    Funny you mention a #78. It was one of those planes I had to have. I found an immaculate Sweetheart era specimen at a great price and jumped on it. I think I used it twice in 10 years. It left me in...

    I might take a look at the type of drill, and tip geometry in particular. You’re drilling end grain, and that’s a whole different animal. I like the Forster bit idea, or perhaps modify a brad point...

    Thanks Phil. They're a good project for using up leftovers. The design is very simple, but you can get fancy if you choose. The nice thing is that the size is easily scaled to whatever you want. The...
