There are times when the last part of this process is harder than others. Sometimes I really have a hard time putting the plane in the box.
We settled on the final plane and I completed sharpening it today. It will ship tomorrow.
What's different about this time? Well, every time I make one of these dedicated planes I half-heartedly wish the customer backs out and I get to keep it. This plane had my attention once it was decided that we're springing the plane. The profile will fit well into my various presentations. I liked the profile a lot so I cut the line/back log and made one for myself.
Come check it out at Handworks in May.
Here are a couple more that I recently made.
"Get 'em ready, put 'em in a box. Repeat."
"Oh, the plane is working great! Just as I like it. Put it in a box. Repeat."
Try to guess what this scraping plane I recently made will specifically be used for. Hint: the answer is in the picture.
