Yesterday, my sister-in-law went on our first “Off-road” trip (that’s short for “go to a small town that is located off the beaten path)...
Amongst our many stops was a visit to an antique store. As I checked out all of the amazing things I kept my eye open for woodworking tools so I could share in the ongoing “look what I found” discussions.
What did I see? Planes – old, old planes, some not-so-old planes. How do I know the age? Ah.. well.. there was really old looking, grey wood on a couple of them and then others looked all shiny. hahaha I’m an expert now, don’t you think???
The old-old planes, big chunky block thingies, were $18. The newer ones, were $20- $40.
So… I looked .. had no idea what I was looking at or looking for.. but I looked :)
Maybe next trip, I’ll check out the planes more closely and maybe even take a picture or two.
