Hello Readers!

Well my daughter is 6 months old now, and she found the staircase this week…(no worries, we stopped her advancement up them) So I will be building a set of upper and lower staircase gates for her protection against nasty spills. I put together this mockup for the design. As usual this will be made from pallet wood and will be featured on my Pallet Craft blog.

But alas!

I acquired a block plane!

And I am very happy with how it changes the way the wood looks. it doesnt look like weather beaten wood any longer! It looks like fine quality wood for woodworking! I even built a bath tray as a trail run using it. I will get a picture of it later on for a project post. I have to say though, it is very satisfying work doing it by hand, and gratifying when done correctly and in fluid motion. This also helps tremendously in joining boards! Hoorah for hand tools.

This post was inspired by Roy Underhill and the Woodwrights shop.
