That sounds like some serious hand plane work. A sharp iron makes a huge difference!

Aye, im using paul sellers method and it seems to be working well, though i use a jig for my plane blades. Chisels i freehand, jig wont hold my current ones.

I watched his workbench series. It’s crazy how most of the milling is done with his 4 1/2. You will have to let me know when your done. If your interested I could put something in a future issue of the magazine about your bench build, if your interested.

Very helpful James. Will try the plane exercise and find out how my planing ability stacks up.
