Another fine video!

Particle board for your office maybe! I’m sticking with MDF for my office, MDF trees are not an endagered species. Unless of course, I get particle board for free.

I liked the 10 rules for handplanes. Know then, if I could only remebers what they were….....

Like the shelf pin jig. You better patent that before someone else does…
Like your plane rules. too. Especially #1. I NEVER buy the cheapest and I can’t afford the most or the almost most expensive so I have that rule covered.

The more I watch your videos, the more I am entertained and learn something new. Thanks

Always intereting to watch you crazy videos. Well done. From a Ex -Michigander!

Great idea in the jig as well, I have always made my own as well and like the idea of the router.

I know a lot of woodworkers know the basics, but I also know a lot who never use hand planes because they can’t get them to work right. Usually, it comes down to sharpening. If the plane is not cutting right, sharpen it. If it won’t cut an ultra thin shaving, sharpen it. If it is tearing out the grain, sharpen it. And when you’re done, sharpen it again. That’s why the really cheap planes are a bad idea. The steel in the blade is too poor to even get a good edge, and it won’t stay sharp long once you do. A pre-1920 Stanley usually has a good blade, but even then an upgrade to one of the aftermarket blades they make nowadays can really be the difference between frustration and the pure joy that comes from working with good hand tools.

Stumpy this show was action packed with good things that will appeal to all levels of woodworkers. The picture of the flying plane was great.
Keep doing what you are doing and carry on.

i was watching your video when my wife, over hearing what you said, told me that she thought you “weren’t right”, i quickly explained that you must have the lid off of the lacquer and you were influenced by the fumes, i think she bought it, maybe
