« Part 8: THERE'S A CHICKEN IN THE WORKSHOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Part 9 of The Stumpy Nubs Workshop series Part 10: A night as big as the Oscars! "TUBAFORE" CONTEST RESULTS!!! »

What to do with a couple old, useless hand planes? This week Stumpy takes a hack saw to a pair of Stanley’s and a rabbet plane is born!

And what’s a tubafore? Stumpy tames one, and it makes him feel like a real man!

Finally, we rant about the new fangled technology in the workshop.

Enjoy!

Great episode – it’s always a treat to watch somebody drilling through a plane body!

Thanks.

Good work on all the episodes! You’ve earned it indeed! I’ve been watching em, just haven’t always commented.
I’ve got an old craftsman rabbet plane that I kinda hate. I sure wish drilling some new holes in it would make it cut as nice as your jackrabbet plane do!

Thanks, Salvage. My shop “slackers” are whatever friends or family happens to be helping out on any particular day. And they refuse to be on film! They seem to think it makes you look dumb… don’t know where they get that idea…
