This time around I’m getting ready to do the joinery on the main case.

Clean looking work, Mos.

How about a little shooting advice? When I’m shooting, I try to slide my workpiece to the left into the plane’s path of travel little by little. Hard to do. But, it looks like you just hold it steady and keep planing until no more shavings? Am I watching correctly? Do you notice when you move the workpiece?

Keep up the new shop work, dude, I need someone to motivate me! LOL!

Thanks Terry.

I will be getting back to the shop stuff soon. Got the necessary info from the city about what I need to do in order to finish it, and eventually heat it.

On the shooting board stuff, I finish off by holding it steady and plane until no more shaving. Otherwise I feed it into the blade until I get a full shaving off the end, then let it go until I have no shaving. It’s kind of like finishing off with a smoothing plane and a light pass rather than a jointer and a heavier pass, in my mind. It may not matter but it makes sense in my head lol

Great stuff Mos, thank you.

You make matching the board lengths look easy; I’ve been caught chasing my tail in that activity more than once.

Who says I actually have to get them the same length? All I have to do is say “perfect” and you believe me :-P

I’ve been in that “Too long, oops, too short, oops well I guess we’re making this 1/4” shorter than before” run around too… Shooting board helps though, I think
