I have been putting together a hand tool “Kit” so that I can just BUILD SOME THINGS!!!! When you are surrounded by hand tools, its hard to choose what to use,.... and pretty soon every woodworking project turns into more hand tool tuning and restoration. That is why I am building a tool chest, and filling it with the essential tools to work wood. Partly inspired by a long awaited goal, and finally pushed along by the Anarchists tool chest.
So I found myself inspecting my lie Nielsen medium shoulder plane, and my two 073’s….. as well as about a dozen other shoulder planes I have amassed. I then became inspired to create an heirloom tool out of wood. SO with a 5 minute doodle on a napkin…. I began to make sawdust.
There is a nice little gap under the blade inside the mouth of the plane as shown in the close-up. So I’m sure that doesn’t help. Its late…. and I haven’t really tried it out other than a few shavings. Tomorrow I will cut some tenons and see how it goes. Please give me any input you may have. Thanks for your time and I’m glad to be here.
