Denise, it looks like you still using oil stones for sharpening? If so, treat yourself to a Japanese water stone.

Trust me, you won't believe how much better they are.

Gawd I feel inadequate.

If you can make something that nice you should treat yourself to a better tablesaw.

plane from scrap

left over beechwood from my bench build. 20" long 1-5/8" blade from a bench plane for now. drilled the first hole wrong. Tried to give it a nautical look but it looks like a plain jane. I'll carve the end to look like the handle with a "duck tail" Thing is... IT WORKS! And really WORKS as jointer type plane!

Needs a proper blade and chip breaker. The handle (not attached yet.) I made from white oak copied from a bench plane also. I need a knob for the front.

don't forget that is for a 15 foot boat, so it may not scale that well up, though Brent Swain claims he can make one for $20.
