    I work (ok, play) in a couple of different styles and would like a couple widths of each. My eye notices when an armoire's panel has the exact same field as a small box's panel. The strangest details...

    I also vote for the panel raiser. The other options are covered in my toolset, but I do need to build a small assortment of panel raisers.

    When my lumber guy refers to "crown cut" he's referring to the outermost slabs from the above drawing; the pieces that have the full smile (or frown) end grain. Plain sawing a log produces quarter...

    I am a blended woodworker but I do every fifth project hand-tool only (the small ones), so my hand planes are set for a wide range of tasks.
    Also I like having tools so I have not pushed myself...

    My Roubo has 5-3/4" legs with an 8-1/2" chop and it's not an issue.
    The vise pressure is almost always applied to the front edge of the top, not to the leg directly.

    On the delamination, Titebond glues (and most others) come to full strength after 24 hours.

    The trick (for me) was holding/moving the plane in the same plane as the desired rabbet surface. The depth stop can become a pivot point/fulcrum that either helps or hurts. The farther the depth stop...

    I've been using my DrawSharp for three months or so. It's not a factor in the grinding step, but really helps me in the stoning steps.

    I have on of Juan's infills and really like the front bun. It makes it a very simple matter to lift the plane on the return stroke.
