    #118 was a bit tight fit....I was going to pare the insides for a looser fit....bit storms came through the area..heavy rain....

    Steven, all the best for the Dr. visit, hope things go well.

    From your comment above, it sounds like today may be your birthday, if that is the case, happy birthday to you.

    May 15th.....turned 67

    All the bone doctor did was drain the "goose-egg" on the knee....one syringe full....
    Hasn't helped much. Bump is still there....shin-splint like pain down the side of the leg.

    Rains have made the shop a pain to work in, since I don't have webbed feet.

    I guess I could just sit a while....until maybe the leg does get better....

    Tried to cut parts for a lid, for Box#2....and that was about it. Tried out the two "new" planes....414c works great....the No.4 will need some time at the stones....has a few nicks in the edge.
    Stay tuned..

    Lid for box #2?
    Block Plane Box #2, last side.JPG
    Don't look now....that be a vintage "Handy Andy" chisel....had to sharpen it up a bit...
    Block Plane Box #2, other 3 sides.JPG
    Got 3 sides done. laid out for the 4th.....
    Block Plane Box #2, tight joints.JPG
    Nice tight joints, too.....no need for sawdust & glue filler.
    Finally, got the 4 sides all jointed, and glue and clamps installed..
    Block Plane Box #2. lid glued up.JPG
    Then trimmed a "topper" to fit...glue and clamps..and a caul


    Block Plane Box #2, topper installed, too.JPG
    Had a bit of trouble...3 out of 4 corners would go in place...then the 4th wanted to go...elsewhere....got that back in place, and another wanted to leave...almost like herding cats....finally got all 4 in place.

    I also worked on the second "Birthday" chisel......had a cambered edge....now? A straight edge, honed to 30 degrees, and the back flat....as is the bevel.
    Rehabbed Fulton Special chisel.JPG
    It was stamped as a Fulton Special.....

    Then called it a day.
    Let the glue up sit a day...then clean it up to fit the inner box...and, figure out what a Shelton No. 118 label looked like.
    Stay tuned

    Clamps came off today. Needed to trim the inside of the lid a bit
    Block Plane Box #2, lid pared.JPG
    Hand and a chin pressure only. 1-1/2" Stanley....didn't take too long to do..
    Block Plane Box #2, pared insides.JPG
    Checked the fit a few times...
    Block Plane Box #2, piston fit.JPG
    Piston fit! Was almost a shame to close up the vent in the lid..

    Then a coat of the Witch's Brew...
    Block Plane Box #2, stained,side view.JPG
    Need to add a Shelton No. 18 label to one end..
    Block Plane Box #2, needs a label.JPG
    As for Block Plane Box #3....need to fit it to this plane..
    Block Plane Box #3, next plane.JPG
    I think it is a Stanley No. 18...later model?
    Block Plane Box #3, back end.JPG
    And not a Stanley No. 9-1/2.....will work on a label for Box #2 first...after the stain dries.

    Stay tuned...

    Will end this thread here.....next batch of little boxes use a different corner joint, and a different style lid.

    Thanks for looking in...
