I was blessed by Martin Shupe's company for most of the morning today. He's in town to see relatives and managed to squeek out some time to come by "the shop." A super nice guy. He brought his new smoother plane and I put him to work with it too! (If he could have only stayed longer... ) Thanks for coming by Martin, I enjoyed the time!
The first picture is me & Martin (on the right). (Apologize for the wife's "shaky" camera). The second is Martin giving his Ray Iles smoother a work out on some mahogany. That's a niiiiiice plane. He let me test drive it.
