I am a software/electrical engineer at NOAA. I design, build, and write software for various weather balloon instruments. Woodworking is a hobby I picked up to work with my hands and have projects to occupy my free time.
I really enjoy building small wood projects on the weekends and after work. I also spend time hiking, bicycling, playing video games, and building computers.

For the “Shop Made Tool Swap - 2015: Hand Planes and Spokeshaves”, I decided to make two planes (one to keep, one to swap) including the blades. I started with a 1/8” thick 2.5” wide precision ground flat bar of A2 tool st...
