A simple start would be making a scrub plane ! A german style with the front horn is always nice to look at and to use.
Then a small block plane – same profile
Then a smoother
Then
Then
‘Then…......the list can go on and on !

@canadianchips – Sweet scrub plane! German Engineering always captures my attention. I drove a Wolfsburg VW until the wheels literally feel off… Oh, I was also recommended David Finck’s “Making and Mastering Wood Planes”. What do you think? Now the challenging part is getting the kids ready to head out to the Bookstore. Thanks for sharing and getting the suggestions rolling…

Well, no luck finding the book. Going to have to order it online. Until then, back to cleaning the shop and waiting patiently.

Paul words of wisdom. You are on your way, and with that attitude you will get there in no time. Hand tools to me, have to be learned. You can read, watch video’s and be told how but you have to get in there and stay at it. If its not working change one thing and try again.
Great post.

Sorry, no help on the planes but Im sure as heck going to follow this blog with interest.

@ Hybridhelix; your VW’s wheels fell off?! Normally you have to loosen at least three wheelnuts on those before you can make the bloody wheels fall off so you can replace the car. Lol! I drove my VW for what seems like forever. Took a distracted driver skipping a light at an intersection to finally bury it. Fantastic vehicles. Every single model! Also my father taught me to paralel park in a manual 70’s era VW bus. If you can paralel park that thing you can paralell park anything!!! Thing had a three foot long shifter! And yes, it was avocado green with a white top. Werent they all?

Okay, this always happens to me…I have an entire weekend to myself and I mean to accomplish a task or two only to find that I am missing tools or resources…Then on day two (or three in this case), I find the resources I need and it’s too late to make any progress…bummer! Well, at least I got lots on intel and I found an intersting link to brainstorm over some hot tea (Something new I’m trying. They say it’s great for anxiety disorders). May God pour out His blessing upon you all and may you all have a great night. As always, thanks for your direction and guidance. I greatly value it.
