I have been looking at the plans you guys suggested for the thickness sander (by the way, thanks) and I have a “dumb” or “beginners” question. What keeps the wood from shooting out when you run it through? I didn’t finish college but the law of physics tell me if you put a piece of wood into something that is rotating at 1000+ RPMs, it’s going to shoot it across the room.
Here are photos of the tools i have thus far. Any advice on what to get please help me out, keeping in mind i only use human-powered hand tools. I plan to get more planes, files, rasps, a coping saw, a cabinet scraper, a drawknife, a spokeshave, a bevel, and a crosscut saw. If you know how to make any of these i’d appreciate the help because making the tools is a top priority, second is buying them.

I was beginning to get that itch. I needed a fix. So I bundled up and hopped in the car and off I went. I had a vague desire to buy some rare earth magnets. Do I have a project that requires magnets? No, of course not, I just really wanted them. The reason that the advertising industry is so successful ...
The two spurtles I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles! The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple. I posted this entry pretty much verbatim over at wordpress (oh ...
