    Hi David

    To understand the feedback from the BU jointer you need to imagine a comparison between walking in a pair of slippers and then in a pair of shoes. The slippers are thin and your feet are...

    I have been spending time exploring the new LV Custom BD Jointer in a number of configurations. Fascinating!

    There is a 50 degree frog, which can be used with- or without a chip breaker. There is...

    Hi Jerry

    As Dave wrote, used to plane a l-o-n-g board.

    Not altogether necessary (just plane down high spots first), but it can make the job easier.

    I was given a 3" wide blade and turned it...

    You cannot always skew the iron on a plane with sides that are out-of-square. It depends on the direction of the "lean". If towards the sidewall of the runway, then the blade will project further...

    Shoulder planes are useful for more than tenon shoulders. I find one invaluable for fine tuning rebates and breadboard ends, as well as small precision planing.

    While I may also use a wide chisel...

    Hi Kees

    The argument that "you can do an awful lot of woodworking without touching your shooting board" is what is referred to as a "straw man". This means that, if you analyse the argument, then...

    Hi Prashun

    It really depends on what you call an inside curve. That is, what size the radius of the curve actually is. For example, I have no doubt that most flat bottomed spokeshaves could plane...

    Hi Dave

    Obviously, flat bottom shaves are for flat work and round bottom shaves are for curves. Yes? Well, not quite. In essence that is true, but each may be used interchangeably, just with less...

    Hi Ian

    I used one of Stu's cheap gauges as a basis for a Kinshiro-alike: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/ShopMadeTools/KinshiroOnTheCheap.html

    You can use a fine/thin blade when marking with the grain. It's all in the technique: take only very light strokes until you have severed the fibres.

    Thanks Sean and Daniel

    Both of you are making essentially the same suggestion, which is one that also occurred to me - build the drawers slightly oversize and then basically cope them to fit. As...

    Thanks David.

    I've only a limited experience with laminating curves - made a few demilune tables a few years back. I think that I used epoxy resin. Urea Formaldahyde is no longer available in Oz,...

    Hi Curt

    Fortunately, hanging space is not on the agenda. That makes it a little simpler - and I do want to avoid too much complexity.

    One idea that I will incorporate is a lid (that looks like...

    Hi Mark

    I agree, a progressive graduation of drawer heights is my preference as well. I am looking into this at the moment.

    A mirror is an idea. Perhaps not part of the chest, but above it.

    Planning the next build

    I'm sure others also spend time between builds tuning up equipment, both power and hand. This time it has been with more caution in mind since I have a stack of rough sawn Makore to use - beautiful...

    Gene, what you want to remove is really not much, and far too much trouble to bother with power tools.

    I'd use a scrub plane for removing both the end grain and long grain waste. The end grain I...
