Hello Readers!

I thought I would take the time to show you what was my first project that I ever used a hand block plane on. I had just bought a block plane from Home Depot (lower end model) the night before, and I was eager to try it out. By the end I was and still am more than satisfied with it’s operation. No sooner had I researched how to properly use one, was I practicing on the boards I used for this bath tray. I was happy with the newly planed wood, so I decided to go ahead and practice mortise and tenons for the base board to attach to the tray top. I made the mistake of cutting the tenons before I planed the base board and knocked off one… had to re-do it… Also, when cutting the mortises I stupidly punched through one of them after having done the first one nicely… So I had to fill it on the top. Overall I learned how to block plane boards, to plane the boards before cutting mortise and tenons, and what not to do when drilling and chiseling out mortises. Check out the photos below and see my other pallet projects here and on my blog: Pallet Craft!
