Default Hand made veneer

Shopmade veneer by hand - videos - Fine Woodworking

Click on the link to see a neat 2 minute video about hand made veneer.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I'd be willing to bet you could shave with it.

Glad you enjoyed it Esko.

Hi Bill. I just spent 31 days in an oil patch camp. No internet to keep up to the forums with. I missed the final episodes on the rocker and will try to catch up later.

I've thought about making up the bundles too. Nothing overly difficult about that part but I was thinking of band sawing it into thin slices. I would have liked to have seen him group the bundles and a little longer look at the pattern. And then he starts slicing off paper thin strips with his plane like you say. I would have also liked some better shots at it. The video could have easily been twice as long as it was.

The plane in the video was considerably wider than 70mm. If it costs anything like this one I'll be content to whack layers off with my band saw.

$2K for a wooden plane?! Yikes.
I looked at the description and at least $1,500 of that is fantasy. Old anchor chain? Better than modern hi tech steel? I don't think so.
I worked in a smelter for a short while back in the '60s, making tightly specified steel. The amount of lab work and testing that went into each pour was truly impressive.
Old anchor chain? Seriously? An old 1st World War Naval gun I could maybe understand.
