Just wanted to share this, because I am sure not a lot of people read that blog comment and I am so excited and privileged that I had to share it. Now I have a fair amount of tools, in order of what I would like and what I need, I am only missing in order of importance for me: A jointer, A bandsaw, A thickness planer.
But I really only made this entry to showcase my most prized tools:
Sitting on my future kithcen countertop you see planes I recieved just today! An unexpected privilege and a gift from my grandad. These planes are from the 1920s, made by my great-grandad who was an one of a kind carpenter, then the planes were given to my grandad, and they skipped a generation, because my uncle is a metal worker.
And now I have these 2, soon to be 100 year old hand-made planes. In addition to the discussions here on LJ I plan to do a lot of youtube-ing on how to sharpen them and how to use them properly. I want to give these to my son or my grandson at some point, so I have to take good care of them.
