So today I FINALLY got my other two boxes of stanley 45 irons. So now I have 3 boxes to clean and hone. Hopefully get to it within the next couple days. I will post a pic on here soon, with the 45 and all the irons.

More Window Sill Planing

Using the smoothing plane, at a slight skew, look at those curly shavings.


2nd Window Sill Planing


1st. Video Bay Window Planing


Bay window sill

So today was a good day. I planed down a bay window with all my planes. Used my smoother, jack, shoulder/rabbet, and my block. I will have some video of this soon.

Side note, it has been a few days and there is no rust on any of my planes. Also, the soles of them all are extra smooth. I used to use candle wax/bees wax. Johnson's paste wax is what I will be using from now on.
