    I have one of those planes somewhere. I believe mine is a WoodRiver, but it is a similar design to the Veritas (without the Veritas handle design). I really dislike that plane. It is very...

    I like Joshua's method the best.

    I don't crank down on things with all my might, but I suppose I tend more toward the "tight" side of things than the "just snug" side. I'd rather have something...

    I don't loan tools. (A chainsaw would be the absolute last thing I would loan.) I don't keep a bunch of crappy tools around to loan out either. But I've never had anyone ask to borrow hand tools...

    Looks good. I'll be interested to see how it comes out. I need to make one for myself too.

    And you have carpet in your shop? Sounds nice to work on but a pain to clean up.

    It depends on so many factors, it is hard to say what will happen. You can probably run a long time with the 30ga if you keep one gate (per branch) open all the time. It is pretty easy to get it to...

    Oak (in any form) is horribly dated. The only thing worse is paneled walls. It produces bad memories of an 80s hunting lodge or your grandparent's basement. Paint or heavy espresso stain helps...

    It's probably doable, but it sounds like it would be pretty difficult to keep everything tightly in place. The "hammer" part may move the squares around. As Mike said, practice on some scrap first.
