One thing I've noticed (and it pleases me a lot!) over the last year or two is the large amount of repeat orders from customers. Customers that come back for another plane, or sometimes many.
I recently had an order for a Mini Panel Raiser and the customers name rang a bell - he'd had a plane from me a previously. His name also rang a bell because I read his blog (take a look over at "The Renaissance Woodworker") - he has kindly reviewed the Panel Raiser with a video on his site.
It's that time of year again - the Yandles Woodworking Show is nearly upon us. Come on down for a great day out on the 13th and 14th of April near Yeovil, Somerset. It's a very enjoyable show set in a real working sawmill - free entry and parking! I'll be on the Classic Hand Tools stall making shavings - do come by and say "Hi!"
