When I ended the last segment I had just tried out the router plane. It needed a little tuning so the next day I honed and adjusted it a little and finished up the grooves for the bottom. It worked very well.
I was going to move on to fitting up the box and veneering the inside but Patrick had said that I really needed one of these........ so I made one.
Meanwhile I had ordered some OBG from Patrick and we got talking about toothing planes and he agreed to sell me a blade ….... so of course I got into that as soon as the blade arrived. This is how far I got this afternoon. Tomorrow I will refine and shape it but it actually works right now.
Just so you know my sidetrack isn’t all Patrick’s fault, there’s also the little matter of my canister filter getting a little clogged and needing a cleaning …... One thing led to another and I decided to make the long planned move to building it in. It now takes up as little space as I can compress it into and is still accessible….. and it really sucks since being cleaned.
I do promise to get back to the FBDT box soon ….. maybe tomorrow ….. after I shape and play with the new plane.
Thanks for looking in. I am still alive, just not getting much done on the box.
