Well the Level 1 is done and no I didn’t get my nail tray finished; I need about another hour to get it all together including fixing my myriad ‘learning opportunities’:-)
I had a chance to use a rabbetting plane! and a brace and bit. I am very impressed with how easily these tools worked, I had anticipated that they would be much less effective for a lot more effort. I will be keeping my eyes open for good garage sales and auctions for more hand tools now.
Overall (even though I didn’t finish the projects) I learned an enormous amount. The opportunity to try out the router and rabbetting planes, the brace and bit and to learn that I can in saw a straight square cut as well as finding out how to properly plane to square and a set dimension was incredibly satisfying.
Good night, and thanks for reading; I’ve got to go now and register for Level 2!
