It was a good day in the shop.
I was really in the zone. I had a good rhythm going and knew every move I was going to make before I made it.
The icing on the cake was to pull my Shea handplane from the shelf and make the necessary adjustments to the material for a pro fit. It slides like it is on wet ice and it just feels good in hand.
I did not try the make the thinnest and longest curl for the record. I simply needed to shave some wood and the plane did it willingly. It was an extension of my body. I really enjoyed my day in the shop and particularly those moments with my Shea plane in hand.
Peace, Love, and Woodworking
