Friday at last!!
Well this week has been busy, and it certainly is good to be busy when you have to pay the mortgage. You’ll also be pleased to hear I managed to spend a little time in the workshop today, too.
First things first – the drawer bottom plane. Done, tested, happy. Some pretty pictures here for you. Made from steamed pear and with an adjustable fence this plane is a copy of one I picked up a while ago. It is a fun plane to use (although it would be better with nickers – cue the MK II version) and so simple its a joy. This one is off to a friend again so I’d better get some more pictures for posterity. ;)
Glued up the remaining bits and pieces of my fluted table. With luck tomorrow will see me gluing the table together leaving just the drawer to complete. I can’t wait to get the oil out for this one!
So the weekend is here – enjoy!
