papasombre I saw the entire video. It worth the invested time for the final result. Mine will have a special place at home.
Ah, I realized that Herb is a lefty man...

Agree!!

I am the owner of one of those master pieces

Cherryville Chuck This is very timely Herb. I've been keeping an eye out for a shoulder plane lately and the idea of making one as opposed to buying one is very attractive.

It is not for everyone, though, some people have toxic reactions to the sawdust and the splinters are fierce. It does not plane well as chunks will come out even planing with the grain. Sanding and sawing and routing seem to be very easy.

I like working with it.
