Below: I used a Clamp-It square from Rockler to insure that the leg was square. If you don’t have one of these, use a square piece of MDF or other 90 degree guide. Above: The second legs is hooked on…I used my bar clamps to secure the leg while I work...
For some time now I have wanted to build a hand plane but have always had some other project I need to finish first, well I decided that I would always have some other project to finish and just jumped into the hand plane project. The thought of building a project with tools I have made very appealing to me, so I thought a nice wooden hand plane would be a perfect start.

I cut my 3/4” MDF top and bottom shelf to fit in the frames. I then cut the scrap offcuts from the frame and leg lumber into cleats (for holding the top and the bottom shelf in place.

So far, I’ve purchased 2 2×10”s x 10’ for the frame of the project. The lumber cost for the frame assem...
“It’s not that I had a message that was outstanding or unique or anything like that. I just expressed the feelings that a great number of people had … ‘Live the life that you want to live.

I decided to make a realistic work in converting scalenes to create a spiral design from a hexagon origin. At first I was thinking of the difficulty I will be facing in constructing it.

THE BLACKHOLE—The black and white in smaller strips In a way, it looks easy to construct however, creating the acute angle of less 5 deg is difficult.
