I am ashamed to say that I am not getting in nearly as much hand planing practice as I originally intended to. Hopefully those of you who are joining in
on the challenge are finding time to work on your skills. I have not even started to work on the Try Square yet but I did download Andre Roubo’s Try Square Digital Download by Chris Schwarz and it looks like a pretty good plan. I do intend to build a Try Square based on his plan before the end of the month. You know that saying “burning the candles at both ends,” well that’s how I feel right now. A full-time job, putting a magazine together, building projects, writing blog posts along with planning and having a first birthday party for your kid (actually very time-consuming) is a lot to take on. When I am in the shop I need to spend it working on projects. Thinking that I could spend all this time working on my hand planing skills, doing all these exercises was more like wishful thinking! I have done a little bit of hand planing, the lid for the steamer trunk that I built my daughter needed to be finessed to fit the base. For this my No. 62 came in very handy, so it’s not like I have not done any hand planing just not as much as I would like.
