This is a fun hobby for me. I took shop class in high school and loved it. I started again when I was unhappy with furniture options that were in my budget for my house. Walmart, Target et al weren't doing it for me anymore. I found that I enjoyed it enough to start doing more serious work.

Well hello again! This is part 3 in my jointer plane restoration. When we last spoke, I had done the electrolysis process on the body and frog, as well as the smaller parts such as the cap lever, iron, and chip breaker. I also need to mention...
So after a quick spritz with some PB (one of my personal favorites), the plane came right apart. My wife’s only complaint with PB is the smell, so I do it outside rather than in the basement. On the downside, I don’t hallucinate anym...
