Fame At Last??

HI Folks
Was very excited to see one of my planes reviewed on the Popular Woodworking Blog by Chris Schwarz. He is also reviewing the Mini Panel Raiser plane in the next (Feb 2008) issue of the magazine.
I was expecting to see the review appear but it was still a big shock to see it. Thanks Chris!

Being the proud owner of three of Philly's Phinest, I am extremely happy about Chris's review of the miter plane, And I've no doubt that the review of the mini panel raiser will be as fine if not better!
So congrats and i will be needing to order the drawer bottom plane before the list get too long.

Hey Phil,

That review (and the forthcoming one) are *well* deserved. Making a plane from scratch (especially one that is not laminated) is an immense technical challenge that few woodworkers appreciate.

I hope that the printed review sends you some well-deserved business.

Kind regards,

I just wanted to mention the fact that I wanted a mini panel raiser before Chris put it to words.

Looking forward!
