I’m currently building a work bench and I’m trying to use as many hand tools in the building process as possible. I’ve been planing the legs for the past couple days, and after each leg I feel like I need to down a bottle of water, and I have. My muscles are sore and I’m out of breath. Now I’m 24 years old and in pretty good shape, but this is a hard task. I still have the top to plane as well. So to get to the point of the title. We all know “The Schwarz” is skinny and that he has a penchant for hand tools, especially planes and their use. I believe this is why he is so skinny. I must admit, however, I feel a great sense of accomplishment and pride in being able to plane a piece of wood flat and square. Plus, I’m not using electricity lowering my carbon footprint. This is surely a great experience, I suggest you try it.
