Some folks need a kick in the a$$ to get things done! For me to find time to fulfill a dream to get an old hand plane to work much less look good is hard to find. Recently a good friend gave me this old Shipwright plane that he used to the point of smoking the sole! I just lightly sanded the top & sides, then after flattening the sole W/sandpaper on the TS wet sanded with Dalys ship & shore using #400 wet sanding paper. It feels soooo smooth and looks like a chunk of history.
My thanks to all LJs for the inspiration you share Thru projects, blogs or just as important a comment on a post.
Berthas blog of favorite hand planes may go on for decades (hopefully) I can’t seem to put pix on blogs so far so this is my favorite hand plane for Bertha. Thanks Al, And all!
