The other day I asked about the best way to make cauls to glue up two facing panels of MDF. PurpLev (on this board) lives about 3 miles from me, and invited me over, for a lesson in planes (which I thought I needed to make cauls), a discussion of milling tools, and discussing ways to make cauls. I’ve decided the safest way is by way of a sled with clamps to cut on an angle.
The only reason I know PurpLev is because he commented on my posts, and when I checked him out, I saw that he lived in the next town over.
He has been doing woodworking only 3 years, he says – but he seems so far ahead of me in his knowledge and skills, yet I’ve been doing it for years – perhaps not as constantly.
I love it that this board makes it easy to meet great teachers like him. Thanks, Sharon!
