Location: Newark, DE

I got into woodworking in 2007. I was looking for a hobby that allowed me to create things. My grandfather was general contractor/carpenter and I remember marveling at all of the "toys" in his basement when I was a child. I am still very much a novice woodworker. At this point I have either inherited my tools, or bought relatively cheap tools (my wife won't let me spend to get nice tools until she is convinced that I can make nice things).

When I joined this site I didn't realize how international it is, so I guess I should clarify my username. "DE" ist nicht Deutschland, aber Delaware.

Hey Joe, I also restored a #3. It was more of just a clean up job and I bought a Hock blade for it too. I think the #3 is the best plane for me due to my limited experience tuning these things. I found the smaller the plane the easier they are to get right. The #3 is a good balance of easy to tune and big enough to get something done.
