    Shoulder plane.....and GLOAT update

    Nice plane Phil and Rob. 8) The best gloat on that picture though, is the fact that Rob actually has a sheet of perspex covering his chisels!! Not content with hiding them boxed away, he has to show them off even when not in use and keep them dust-free!!!! Blimey that's cool... :wink: :D Gary

    Just how many faults are there?

    Blimey. I'd just shape the edges a little, smooth it up, oil it and mount it as an abstract. It looks lovely! :D Gary

    Great job Andy! If only I had the time and patience... I just hope you get the hole for the Router lift right first time. I'd hate for you to have to start over :shock:

    Thanks for the advice - drill/driver

    Hi all Not sure if this is in the correct section (if not I'm sure the mods will be on it pronto!) but just a big thank you to all who advised me before Crimbo on a decent drill driver for around the £150 mark. Decided to go with the majority and went for a trusty Makita MXT...

    Pitch Pine Kitchen Worktops ?

    cool - not the nails you understand - the planing. So is it a reclaim-only material? And the density, is that due to aging or a characteristic of the timber? I assume this as I've never come across any pine that wouldn't wield to a fingernail :) let alone a decent plane iron. Could do with...

    Fecn's Tiny Workshop Tour

    Excellent job there mate. It's pretty much the same size as mine is now after the extension (started 7x7 and now it's 7x18), only yours is near to finished. (I'm still using an extension lead from the house :oops: I actually feel quite ashamed that 6 months on and it still looks like a pigsty...

    Pitch Pine Kitchen Worktops ?

    They look really nice. I'm going to be re-doing our kitchen doors and worktops later this year so that may help me too. If you decide to use it, please let me know how it works out. (Silly thing to say - I daresay there will be WIP's etc. #-o ) Running the risk of sounding a complete numpty...

    VIDEO CAMERA - which one ?

    I use a Panasonic 'NVGS15B' I think is the model. Mini DV tapes, 24x optical zoom, 800x digital zoom (pointless!) and cost 300 quid 18 months ago, so if still available should be a good purchase. Small enough to go in yer pocket but not too small to handle (I have fairly big hands). Does the job...

    My Boat name plates

    " 'Tis'ard " to sail it, maybe? :oops: did i say that out loud :oops: couldn't resist :D Love the nameplates BTW. The top one is my fave, but if the plate were 'tother way round, or 'upside down' if you see what i mean. That way it would fit the shape of the boat nicely under the rail. Gary
