Inspired by the hot dog from Mads, I started looking around in my shop for hot dog material, but could not find any.

But I did find some Drumstick scraps. The scraps were from an old rocking chair my daughter found along the street that was too far gone to fix. My groove did not come easy, first too small, then too big. I had to fix this by gluing slivers back in the groove. But we have a perfect fit now.

I really like the feel of the drumstick in the hand. It gives you something to hold onto.

The hot dog or drumstick is used as a better positioned grip when using a #62 on the shooting board.
For a shooting board look at the link below.

Thanks for the inspiration, Mads.

Thanks, Wayne, I’ll take that from a plane-master.

Dennis, I just choked in a peanut. That’s too funny! If you like, I’ll share one if the legs.

thank´s :-) but I think it wuold be too expencive to send
use them wicely yourself …. and not on some backbones …. lol

as Randy told me …. no popcorn , coffee, cola , peanust or other food ingreedience
near the computer when login on L J …..........too expencive
I´m still a slowlearner …. just had a container last week to take the trash after a little flooded basement
realy nothing compared to other …. but still one H… of a mess
sudently my daughter and wife asked how it cuold bee there was so many scrapped keyboards
hard to explain when they don´t realise how great the L J members are

take care
Dennis

Hi ho!
That is a wonderful idea, and I can easy imaginge that the Drumstick shape could be really nice, perhaps one day I will try this also.
So we can say your 62 ‘rocks’ now, ok that was perhaps not really funny…
Recycle and uprade of a wonderful tool, that leaves not much more to wish for, congratulations again.
Ahhh yes and nice series of hook, shoot and miter, belive it or not I made my first miter last week, always ysed a box from a shop.
Hope all the celebrations went well.
Glad to see you find a little shop time again my friend,
Mads

Mads, YES, I was able to hide out in the garage and get several projects done. The warping frame, the drumstick, and I also got the first shuttle for the weaving loom completed. I will post the shuttle later this week. I am waiting for the finish to dry before I take my last picture.
I asked my 14 year old daughter how she liked my hot dog, she said that’s not a hot dog, that’s a drumstick. So that is where the name started.
The 62 is being processed to make it my own. I hope it never rocks, I hate rocking planes. But to answer your question, YES I like the plane very much.
Mads, if you look back you favored the hook, shoot and miter post way back, like a year ago…...lol.
The birthday party went well, thanks for asking, now my youngest are 6 years old.

Woodzy, thanks for your comment. It is the little jigs and upgrades you make yourself that make the shop personal and so much fun.

Bertha, I don’t like the rear tote AND I don’t like the cheesy lever-cap, but the plane works great. So the next step is changing out the rare tote.

Monday morning, it is time to go to work, somebody needs to do it…...

Yes I am really slow sometimes, if I really even put it in my favorites, and still spend so long to make it. But I think they are really worth a favorite, so glad they are there thank you. And yes you are with no doubt one of my favorites also, so all fits well.
Best thoughts,
Mads
