« Part 40: ZCI for the Bosch Glide Mitre Part 41 of Shop stuff series Part 42: Router plane tune up »

I have not been spending any time in the shop lately. I have been without ambition or motivation. It feels like I have had a sinus headache for about 2 months. I think it may be the changing weather. We seem to be getting more than one season in the span of a week. The temperatures have been bouncing around above and below the freezing point and we have had a lot of change in pressure systems too it seems. So I have been lazing around and blowing my nose and wiping watering eyes. This too shall pass.

In the mean time, while I was working on, and making videos in the series “A board of Cherry”, I sent a segment into Matthew Morris, a You Tube wood worker that makes some beautiful things. He has a web site, MM Wood Studio, where he shows his work and has video lessons that he sells too. He got himself a new Veritas router plane and decided he would give the ones he had away. Well, I guess he took pity on my old soul, watching me use a chisel through a board as a router plane, and sent me his Stanley 71. He spent over $45 in postage to send it too me too. I am blown away with his kindness and generosity. So, here I am opening up the box I got in the mail.
