You Have to See This Shaving!

A good customer kindly brought this video to my attention, that shaving has to be a bout 9" wide!
Whilst we all get excited about wonderful shavings in the West, it's interesting to see that the spectators seemed more interested in the surface left behind, which of course is the whole purpose of planing. Anyway give yourself 90 seconds to enjoy this.


  1. Hey David,
    Are you familiar with Chris Hall who has a blog called "The Carpentry Way?"
    I believe his second most recent posting had a video that a lot of people also might be interested in, featuring his "shinx - super surfacer" .... If people into hand planes are unaware of this thing - it's pretty cool. Certainly not as romantic and takes a lot of the fun out of the process - but boggles my mind at what it can do.

    1. Thanks Owen, that sounds interesting, I am aware of these and will have a look at his Blog tonight. All the best, David.
