My old Block plane

Today, I was building a window sill for my house, the window was a bit bowed so I needed to remove some wood in the middle to make it fit. I kept thinking how am I going to do this without screwing up. Should I sand it, cut it, or what? what a pain. I was looking through my bench drawers looking for that ever elusive pencil, you know the one that can move on its own. As I was searching, I pulled open the drawer with my hand planes. I love hand planes, but I never remeber I have them. I grabbed my block plane and started shaving off the middle of the sill until it fit perfectly. The block plane is a very cool tool, I am going to tune mine up and use it more, that is my new years resolution. If you don’t have one then you are missing out on a wonderful tool.
