Hey Bass, how's it going? Glad to hear you're mad skilz aren't sitting idle. I can hear those wood shavings as they're rolling off that newel. No hearing protection needed there.:thumbsup:
Howdy, The trees are starting to show off their fall colors here...this causes Minnesotans to panic.:laughing: This season is always busy here. I've been doing some cabinetmaking and installing, tomorrow is day two of an oak and iron rail job, making a custom oak return air grill, a mud room project, etc.
The sound of a sharp plane in action is very cool!:w00t:
The sound of quality hand tools in general is very cool. It's a shame some guys in the trades have never heard them.:laughing:
you are making your own edge banding. Leo will be proud. :thumbsup:
glad to hear you have been busy. Hope all else is well too.
What do you use for a plane?....I use a stanley low angle that I use in the field.
I've tried my hand at sharpening but I've never gotton the results I see in FWW....sharpening is a skill in itself:thumbsup:
Your blade is set too deeply and you need to check your chip breaker, if you have one on that plane. Those seem a bit thick, which is a testament to how sharp your blade is, but how smooth a surface is it leaving? Looks like its chattering a bit by the fuzzy shavings.
Good job on learning to sharpen by hand. There isn't much more satisfying than success.
