new to forum, Holly-wood?
Hi folks, new to the forum & have to say, I like what I`m reading on here, I can`t abide online squabbles, bad manners or nasty comments just because you disagree with someone!
having just cut down a holly tree in my garden I`ve been looking on the web about how difficult to work it can be & why not to use the timber, but, I was wondering if it could be used (once dried) for plates? I reckon I`m gonna give it a go & will post the results on here.
I don`t have a lathe but I can get round that, with 30+ years working in the UK building trade I`m sure I can give this at least a good try.
I`m gonna post my opinions about a lovely little Quangsheng block plane I recently acquired & an Anant smoothing plane I rescued from a neighbours shed that needs if not a full restoration, a good fettling at least.
looking forward to contributing to the forum, now, where`s the joke`s thread, I`ve loads of them!
cheers guys (& dolls) Wastrel.
