Dennis – I love your definition of a hand plane. “A jig to hold a chisel at the correct angle”. You should add that to Wikipedia.

Charlie – I think we all suffer from that. I’m going through that stage that all new woodworkers go through where I study a particular type of tool, learn about it, read reviews, decide which one to buy, buy it, take it apart and fiddle with it, learn what makes it good and develop an appreciation and love for it. In some ways I think it is healthy, because only after you’ve been through all that can you get the best out of a tool. The woodworking will come and hopefully be better for it. At least that’s what I tell the wife. :-)
