OK I am running out of shelf space and am in need of storing my planes with a better method. I will attempt to build a plane tote that I can change its configuration as my plane habit grows.
I have purchased some s4s 4/4 tiger maple. I ripped them down to 5” wide by 2 1/2’ long. Now let us see how that refurbed coffin plane works out.
The vendor I purchase my wood from is in need to sharpen his planer blades. The maple does have some interlocking grain. So I broke out the card scraper.
I wanted to see the thickness of the shavings my coffin smother was producing.
Some were at .002 to .0025 but the majority were at .0015. I am very pleased. That provided a very smooth finish.
I am going to build a simple dovetailed box with the ability to be able to remove the bottom. Kind of like drawer construction when you build the carcass of the drawer and slide the bottom in. So let the dovetails begin.
I choose a simple layout. Man I really need to get a 1/8 chisel.
I am still getting used to my dozuki saw. But there not to bad.
well dinner is ready and before I started this I had to clean up after my kids physics project. A rube Goldberg. That gave me a headache.
