What a lot of fun – the one with the cats eating out of their bowls made me do a double-take! lol I also like the figure-eight bookcase, with no way to get to the inside (that I could see). Thanks for sharing!

Dragging the plane back over the work is the choice of the maker. But if that is the choice than do not put any weight on the plane. The weight of the plane is plenty. Now this brings up a pet peeve of mine. I was taught that when you set down a plane to always lay it on it’s side, not on the blade. I have been to many wood shops and noticed that the planes were set down and even stored resting on the blade. I will stop here, or I will go on for an hour or so.

Thank for letting me spout off.

Great post man!. Truly inspiring. Whenever I see pictures that push the boundaries like these do, it really gets my creative juices flowing. Now does anyone know where I can get some of whatever hvroberts is drinking/smoking?

Hey Dak! You might know by know that I always enjoy these creative, contemporary posts of yours. It is inspiring, thanks man! ( I have to wait forever to download the pics on my slow dial up connection, but always worth the wait!)

In a manner of speaking, seeing stuff like this makes me want to tear my hair out of my scalp. I adore it…..I so wish these things floated around in my head. I hope you do not mind but I might want to steal from these ideas. My thanks for posting them.
