before i start this post i just want to give a quick apology to Todd. Based on my last post about the Bubinga I’m not sure what response i’ll get when i add some more ;)
Alright now here we go. Today was a very good day! My hockey team won in a 1 – 0 thriller and when i got home i had a nice big box sitting on my front porch, and we all know what that means…. MORE TOOLS!!!!! So today my shipment was from Lee Valley and it was quite a big one.
Exhibit F and G
well thats it for now. my router plane is on backorder. I am very excited to start using these tools. They meet and exceed my expectations from what i have used of them so far. What i also love is how wide the handplanes are and the mass that they have to them. It is a giant improvement over my old stanley #3. As you all know this was quite an expensive order between the saws and the planes and the vices and the other little knick knacks i ordered but for me it was worth it. personally i wouldn’t even dare attacking this Bubinga with anything but the best and where i have very little knowledge in tuning up planes i’m not going to trust any planes i tuned up on this bubinga. Also to aid me in milling it i also got a toothed blade for the jointer plane. can’t wait to get everything all sharpened up and put to use.
i also got another nice little surprise!!
yep a nice big 16/4 square blank of Bubinga for the pie crust table post.
So coming up soon i have a nice video which i am hoping to get up tonight or tommorow on laying out my cuts on a giant slab like this. also this weekend i will skim plane the pieces as I start to get my shop in order. After the pieces are all skimmed it will be about 2 more weeks before i actually start to work with the pieces. I still have one or more tools to buy as well as a dust collection system to install. But believe me i am very excited about all of this coming together!!!!!111
