I love it. This is one of those projects I really want to tackle at some point in the future. I was surprised to find that Woodcraft actually has classes for making these.

Thanks, everybody.

Dennis, they work very well, thanks. I’m very happy with the way the chip ejects, my last homemade was prone to mouth plugging.

J.C., thanks!

Randy, easy and fun. Wear eye protection.

Thanks again for all the kind words!

Something about working wood with wood with steel embedded in it. Very awesome.
