Well the day started with me going to work and the wife was going Christmas shopping. A text came over my phone my battery is dead. So I took off work and the day started. Now as we were shopping I was bidding on eBay. I won this nice little plane.
I go that little jewel for $25.00. It has an half inch blade and the depth stop looks to be there.
Now after lunch we went to sears. And seeing that Smitty has a galoot index going. I have been in need for some wood handled chisels. I want some 19th century period ones but have been unable to locate a nice set. That would still be in my budget. So the need produced these.
Sorry fuzzy shot. But they got wooden handles. I will probably have to flatten them for a few long hours. But they are mine.
Now while we were near my favorite hard wood dealer. ( the only one within 250 miles) My wife let me stop in and do a little shopping. I need something special for a small tool-chest I am building. All I needed was some drawer front material. Each front is about 3 by 14. this is what I came home with;)
3 sticks of birds eye maple.
2 sticks of zebra wood
a piece of jatoba
a pack of cherry cutoffs
and there is some gum somewhere in there.
It wasn’t much but it will face my drawers with something nice.
I have had a good day. The wife ordered me some dmt disks for the worksharp. Might wait on those before I do the chisels.
And I have been working on this post for 2 dang hours. They have got to get the servers fixed. See ya ;)
