    Giving the #62 a workout for a change

    This morning, i decided to make the window apron pieces for the trim in the back room (yeah, it's still not done. I also decided to go after the task using my #62 hand plane. I don't plane that often and figured this would be good practice ...

    It turns out it really was - It was a bit of work, but also quite fun. The hardest thing for me about planing is knowing when to STOP -- those whispy shavings come flying off in a very appealing way and I just can't help myself and usually plane too much

    WOW what a nice big pile of Cherry.

    Are you going to hand plane all of that?

    I like my hand plane - but I like my 16-32 even better.
