Default Shopmade Block Plane Presentation

On June 30th,last Thursday evening I did a presentation at the local woodworking club meeting in the WoodCraft store shop to about 20 members. I had made a batch of 32 planes and gave each attendee one, they got to pick out the one that suited them. I had already given away 15 of the planes to woodworkers in the weeks before the meeting.
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.

James they do work good, and I love the feel of them, everyone at the meeting seemed to like them too.
I am happy to report that no one needed a bandaide from testing out the sharpness of the blade. I had some just in case though.
