Up the proverbial creek
'Bout 2 weeks ago Signal emailed me an article that had been posted on a.b.p.w about making finger planes. They're the dinky ones as used by violin makers and such; in this case the body being a mere 1 3/4" long, 1" high and 3/4" wide. Great, I thought, I'll file this away to wait for a Tuit. But oh no, every time Signal and I have exchanged pleasantries on t'net he's asked "have you made one yet?" in the confident expectation that I'll have to admit I haven't. This is embarassing after the first couple of dozen times... :oops: Well now yah boo sucks to you, Sig. :p I found a tuit and here's the result:

I'd love to say it planes whispy shavings, but as you can see, it doesn't :( Fun to make though, and gained a few "Ahhhh, sweet" comments from TPTBs. Thanks, Sig. :D

Cheers, Alf

Alf,

thats superb. well done, shame about its performance but im sure you'll soon get that licked and be doing the times crossword through the shavings. :lol:

Now as my constant nagging seems to have worked and got one thing off you tuit list, how about that coffee table......

a.b.p.w. = alt.binaries.pictures.woodworking

A news group where, you guessed people post pictures of the woodwork or related things, workshop stuff, they have done. There are somethings that I have seen made me think I am wasting my time!

Alf,

Should I email Steve Knight and let him know about the competition he now faces? :wink:

I can't do The Times crossword without a shaving in the way, never mind with one...

Oooo, that's low. Very low. :p

Dave, somehow I don't think he'd be that worried. :lol:

Cheers, Alf
