    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    Thread Starter: Ed Gibbons

    Which smoothing plane

    Thread Starter: Lasse Hilbrandt

    Thread Starter: Derek Cohen

    Just a quick update on the Lingerie Chest. Four drawers done. They take 3 full days each to build (1 1/2 weekends). This includes thicknessing/sawing/shaping all the parts, dovetailing, and fitting. The gaps between the drawers will be sorted out once all are done. There will be 1/16"...

    Cap iron settings

    Which smoothing plane
