For a day I didn’t spend any time building a project for myself or for my home, it’s been a pretty awesome woodworking day. First, there’s the building of my son's toolbox. That was pretty cool all on its own. However, tonight I finally scored the vintage tool that has long eluded me. If you’ve seen Gone in Sixty Seconds, this is my Elenore. What tool might that be?
Why, the vintage Stanley #71 router plane. I had about gotten to the point where I was ready to just by the Veritas version, but I really wanted a vintage one. Well, low and behold, I managed to score one tonight. I paid a little more than I probably should have, but it’s in really good shape. Check it out here.
I’ve got a lot of pics to upload here in the next few days, and I can’t wait to share them. Now that some computer issues have been worked out, I should be getting photos of all my latest goodies to post for all to see.
Some days, it’s just awesome to be alive. This was one of those days. :)
