  1. New Shop Underway....Part Deuce!

    I'm jealous! I just watched their open house/how their planes are made video the other day. I had heard somewhere that they do a discount at their store. Do you know if that's true? I forgot if you own a guild project. If so ask for the discount while you are there. Both of those are very nice planes. I was actually surprised how much heavier the 4 1/2 is than the 4. I would probably get the 4 and the other later. The 7 1/2 low angle jointer was smooth as silk. Give that a look too. A lot cheaper than the regular #7. Glad you are doing much better. We don't need any more of us gone. Take it slowly, don't ignore anything, and enjoy getting back into your routine. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Awesome! I really want the LN chisels. With the guild discount it will take a little of the price off. Let me know how you like the new honing guide. I liked it a lot at the hand tool event. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  3. Workbench Showoff

    Since I finally finished mine a while ago. Maybe@Chrisk can finally get his done in the near future [emoji16] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  4. I have some besseys and a few jets from their Thanksgiving sale. The Jets are much much better. I'd love to get all jets. But having to wait once a year for any type of sale really sucks. A good workbench and vise are very underrated until you have them. They make life so much easier and open up a lot of things you can do. If you have the room build a good solid bench with vises.

  5. Boardgame/toy/craft armoire

    Thanks. It's general finishes milk paint. I didnt put a top coat on it. We will see how it holds up without it. I used a mix of a foam brush and a roller. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Boardgame/toy/craft armoire

    It's finally done! Wife is very happy with it. I need to tweak a handle though as it's slightly off. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  7. Boardgame/toy/craft armoire

    Ran out of paint. Need to paint the second coat on the insides of the doors and do touch ups. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. I have the veritas as well. Might sell it for the LN. Makes sense on the plane. Glad everything is going better for you. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. Boardgame/toy/craft armoire

    Well this coat took forever. Milk paint is obviously thick. I thinned it a little at the end. Hopefully next coat will go faster. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. I found him probably six or so months ago. Really good editing style. His how to and comparison videos are really well done and gives good solid woodworker insight about why something is better or not. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  11. Awesome to hear! Id hate not being able to pick my kids up. My good work news is I have weekends off this year. We did shift sign up in December and I managed to get the same shift 3-11p but weekends off. Never had weekends off since I've had a job so it's kinda weird. I really liked the LN honing guide. What use will you have for the carriage plane? Love to see your thoughts on the blue spruce chisels. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. I really love the pmv-11 blade in my apron plane. Btw...tried the LAJ #5 today. Oh so sweet! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  13. I will give the nod to LN on their regular plane lateral/forward adjustment. The veritas uses a different style and isn't as easy as the LN/Stanley style. I have a veritas apron plane, cabinet scraper, and dovetail saw. All awesome tools. I will be picking and choosing my planes between LN and veritas. Veritas has a major lead on the shoulder planes. They made significant improvements on them and are much more manageable in the hands. With the wood whisperer guild discount for LN it brings the pricing closer to veritas making decisions harder lol. Matt Estlea has put out some awesome comparison videos between LN and veritas including bench planes, chisels, router planes. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  14. Look at Lee valley veritas as well. Their planes are cheaper than LN. Veritas are as good if not better than LN. LN is very traditional while veritas makes improvements to the original designs and starts from scratch. I am contemplating selling my record planes though. I'll have to mull it over. I have a 4,5, and 7. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. Ha! I know what you mean. I really want to get their chisels next. Ya I have been seeing that. Looks really nice. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
