My Largest Batch of Bench Planes
With upcoming shows it was time to replenish my stocks of bench planes. I've made more of the mini smoothers in one go but never as many larger planes, 20 in all. Before anyone tells me I can't count, I know there are only 18 but I've had to finish and post two already.
I should sharpen the blades and complete them all today. In all it will have taken me just under 60 hours to complete them, dusty, repetitive and sometimes dangerous work. I have scars from the disc sander and bench grinder to show for my efforts. I think I'll stick to smaller batches in the future!
