First and foremost. This Saturday at our Agriculture Museum there will be a meeting of the Pearl River Woodcarvers guild. I do believe 4 lj’s will be there showing support. That in itself will be fun. And I might even find an old gouge or two. ;)
Another cool thing I had a fellow LJ, William, stoped buy this week. He brought me an old #5 fluted craftsman plane. That wiil make another great refurb and user.
Now the plane till is coming together.
Dry fit went alone fairly well.
So I went inside and asked the MS’s to help on the glue up.
Make sure its square.
I have chosen to dye it with water based dye. I used terracotta and a dark brown.
Let it dry a bit and sanded the raised wood.
This maple does have some interesting grain. I have used teak oil and will wait a week or so for it to dry.
So in the meantime I started on another project.
And while plaining on this 8 foot board. catastrophe
I let my fore plain drop to the floor. Everything stoped and I had to repair my tote. Ouch.
But with the great help of my shop elves ( nephew Lane) She was repaired. Again!
Maybe I’ll Get the till build and will have no more major problems. William you can have Murphy back.
