Website:

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.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

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.
