Two blogs in one weekend?? They are paying me way too much........;)
Awoke to find the standard British summertime weather-yup, it was raining hard! That kinda ruled out the planned car boot sale visit. Never mind, the Mother-in-law is always there. Yippee.....
On our return it is workshop time. Finished shaping the seat (and pleased to say it was all done by hand) and spent a while cleaning up the large amount of chips that have surrounded the bench area.
Then, in an act of woodworking craziness, I started project number two! Two projects on the go at once!! Back away, the kids on fire.........;)
So what is this new project?? Here's a clue. Whilst going through my plane colle-I mean, whilst looking at my hand planes, I noticed a certain "hollow" area. I need more planes to "round" it out.
Are you getting it, yet? ;)
Needless to say, I have completed about 80% of the first two. Just need the tool steel to arrive before I can complete them. And the 4 inch plank of spalted beech came in very handy-should be able to make a whole set.
So a pretty productive weekend-and I didn't spend a penny.
