Hi guys, ok the legs for my workbench are all glued up, so today I’m planing them square, well that’s the plan. First two went great nice and square all round. The third one was a little different, It had some real hard and nasty knots, my No 5 and 6 just seemed to ride over them, giving my a bump at every location. I had not done any thing to the N062 since getting it, so I honed the blades up, and give it a try. I first worked the knots only, and tried to make a small hollow then some full length  shavings, bingo straight and square, no bumps.

I’m sure It’s not the correct way to do it, I was just happy to get it done. Ok clean up time, and more bags of shavings 😉
