New Stuff.....

Hi Folks
A long overdue blog update! My apologies for this, if I'm not blogging its because I'm making lots of planes :)
I have lots of news which I'll blog about as the week goes by, but first up is the website. I have added some new models (the Try, Fore and Sliding Dovetail planes) and updated a few articles. I'm also offering my standard plane irons for sale to you keen woodworkers who want to have a go at making your own planes.

Other news.....I had an accident on the band saw in December, injuring the index finger of my left hand. Thankfully there has been no serious damage and I am now back to full use of my hand. We have all read about other woodworkers having accidents and when it happens to you it is quite a shock - needless to say, making sure you keep the guards safely in position and not working when you are tired, ill or a combination of both is extremely important for your safety. Don't take the risk, it truly is not worth it!!!!!

It is so nice to start the New Year with lots of orders to get stuck into - 2013 was a fantastic year for us and I intend to make 2014 even better. Stay tuned!

Sorry to hear about your accident but glad to hear you're healing up well. Glad to see you back at the blog and looking forward to more to come. Stay safe!

Thank you, Josh (and all the other Folk who have sent me get well messages!) I'm pretty much back to normal and promise to blog more often :)

Yikes, I don't like to hear stuff like this. Really glad you're okay and can get back to work. Any issues with guitar playing? I hope not. Anyway, great looking new planes and site. I love the dovetail plane you made for me. It really dials in the perfect fit on what can be a tough joint to get right.
