I have made a small box (3 inches on a side by 2.5 inches deep) but unfortunately I kinda messed it up in a few places ;) Most of the problems I fixed but the last problem I haven’t figured out the best way to fix.

Filling out the shop - Next Tool? - 6 replies
Hello, I am trying to figure out what my next tool purchase should be. I enjoy buying old tools and restoring them, so I always have a new restore in the offing. The trouble is, I’ve been doing this for a while so I have a pretty decent array of tools. I don’t want to buy a tool just so I can do the restore. I want to buy a tool s...

Mystery Number 7 Hand Plane - 13 replies
Hello all, I started woodworking about a year ago but spent a lot of that time restoring old woodworking machines to build up my shop.
