Default Hi from Colorado

I came across this site looking to rebuild a hand planer and looks like a great place to join and get some expert advice. I do a lot of router work building small boxes among other projects, love my router!
I think I have a complete wood shop with everything I need except a jointer that's why I wanted to re-build a hand planer and start using it more.
I look forward to being a member here it looks like a great group to belong to. Thanks.

Welcome to the forum, Fred! Add your first name to your profile so it clears the N/a in the side panel.

We do like photos so show us your shop, tools, projects, etc. whenever you're ready.

Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.

You picked a good group. The old timers around here don't always clean our shops before taking pictures.
