I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

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.

The presentation was on how to make a block plane from the 2010 Wood magazine article.
Here are some pictures of the planes, hope it doesn't bore you guys.They are fun and easy to make. It only takes 3 blocks of wood the center block and the 2 sides.

Steve, WoodCraft treats us great. The Woodcraft rep,also a member, handed out to everyone one of these little Incra pocket rulers that were like this one W/O the red bar and thumb nuts. that were marked $12.99. They also give us a 10% discount on anything we buy on meeting night.

I want to thank all for their generous comments, it makes it even more fun, except for the guy that was picking up each plane and examining it pointing out the flaws,then setting it back down and picking up another one doing the same etc.

There's nothing plain about Herb's Planes!

Herb, I hope you didn't give the nitpicker one.

Yup he found one that met his fancy, after I told him to put his microscope away and move aside and let other people in to pick out their plane. LOL.
