I finished my hand planing jig. It works really well and I like it. The last two nights have been such fun. For the last few weeks I have been focusing on practicing, so it was nice to build something. This is not to say that I don’t intend to get back to the dovetail practicing, as I am still a long way from mastering it. But I needed a better way to hold wood for hand planing and this jig will serve me well for a long time.

I like the boomerang idea and the wedgy. I think I will incorporate them into my bench.
Went to the BIG CITy to have lunch with my wife today. On the way to her work I have to pass the army cadet office. As I drove by 2 female cadets come walking out the door. After writing my comment about your blog this morning, I immediatley said to myself, The twin sawhorses ! I almost peed my pants laughing.

You know, if you post the jig as a project, you could put a link to the blogs so people could see how the process went thus tricking them into reading your blog and becoming one of your mind slaves. A lot of people don’t read the blogs so, it could mean new recruits.
