Well I’m almost done with Plumbing/flooding repairs on the house and couldn’t wait to start a new workshop project.
A while back, I picked up a nice Sandusky plane & cap iron set which needed some cleaning and tuning. More recently, the local Lowe’s accepted back as a return 5 Red Osk 1x4x8, which happened to be only 7’ long (they’re not so bright) which I picked up for $5 (buck-a-board).
The boards were plane cut but with one edge near to the radius of the tree – so nice figure on that edge.
My new/used D7 11-PPI rip arrived today from ebay. A bolt needs replacement but overall it looks and cuts better than the pictures suggested. And the handle doesn’t wiggle a bit. Guess I’m gloating but it’s fun to score a win,
I’ve decided to deviate from form and cut both outside edges from the figures side. That way I can have figure on both sides. And the figure should dazzle folks from noticing that the grain on one edge seems some how off. Well that’s the plan.
As this is my first plane, it will have a cross dowel to hold the edge (KISS).
So far the sides are cut off and flattened. Pictures follow.
