The Woodriver plane I got for Christmas came with a 1 month subscription to Rob Cosman's online hand tool workshop, so yesterday I spend a lot of time watching some of his videos on how to thickness plane and square lumber, very interesting. If you own a video camera, then maybe you could make a video diary of one of you builds, I'm sure a lot of people here on the forum would be interesting in following that, I know I would.

How do you sharpen that ogee blade?

I've considered doing a Vid, but honestly I feel it would just be white noise with all of the countless vids out there... I guess it's something to revisit though.

To sharpen odd cutters like that I put it in the vise and wrap 2500x around an appropriately sized dowel and go at it free hand. It's not the best solution but it works.

What a nice plane, guess you're of the 50% who like the 45.

Dowel w/sandpaper works, I'm thinking of those ceramic sharpening rods, along with chainsaw files.

I may be of the 50%... but I 120% love that 45... Leaves quite a few things to be desired but still quite nice.

One thing about this profile is it should be flipped. It would be much more efficient were the the low cutting edge opposite the fence. This would prevent much of the tendency to inadvertently angle the the plane and alter the desired profile. It was originally formed the way it is though to apply this edge to wide boards that would exceed the width of the fence otherwise.

That is just sharp looking. That it's made with handtools somehow makes it even prettier.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the encouragement with my efforts to learn and execute traditional wood working.

Every single time I pick up a hand tool I'm learning, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it more and more!

Lawrence I'm very interested. I have a craftsman panel saw which serves no purpose for me so I took it apart and cleaned down to a blank of steel. I figure it'll be a good practice for grinding, setting and sharpening teeth as I have very a limited working knowledge on it. Doing is learning.

Still though, very interested as that's exactly what I've been looking for right down to the sway back

I'll PM ya, thx!

Tom, it's great to see that you love the tool and to see you putting it to use. It was tough to let her go. That's a fine looking piece of furniture. Hopefully one day I'll have the hand tool skills that you have.

I'll let you know if I come across any Disston rip saws.

Fun day! I played with some new shop made glazes. I took a page from the Indonesian furniture industry for this one.

The glaze is burned off to leave a dry finish with a quickness.

That's some good looking work. Legs, proportions, color. It all works well.

What's next?
