    The One Stone Challenge

    Thread Starter: David Weaver

    Maybe more of a challenge for everyone else, I've pretty much been following it already.

    Living "Off the Grid"

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    scrub plane recommendation?

    Thread Starter: Mike Allen1010

    I cut, surface and dimension all my stock by hand and occasionally use rough sawn lumber. I've read a number of posts here in the Cave and other places from people who highly recommend using a scrub plane to quickly level uneven boards and glued up panel's. I would appreciate any advice or...
