  • Beautiful work. I'll send my selection of record ones to you for the same treatment ๐Ÿ˜

  • That came out great!

  • I'm always amazed at your work. I hope to catch deal and a hand planer one day.

  • Nice work!!! That's quite the transformation and judging by shavings it takes a nice cut.

  • Wow...nice work!

  • @j.sydneswoodworks That's the most surprising part! I have zero experience in sharpening planer's blades and in using planers yet it cut some poplar. I got really excited. Who knows? Maybe one day I can be a Woodworker!

  • @cam_eddy I am sure you will. I wasn't planning to buy a new one cus I knew that sooner or later I will find something old that could be restored.

  • @neil1744 Sure, send it over but don't expect it back

  • Youโ€™re walking down a slippery slope. After my first once I somehow started to accumulate more and more.

  • @michaelaluwoodworks hahaha... as long as they are coming for free

  • @radekartwoodwork too funny. Pretty sure I already qualify you as that but I get it. I'm being slow too when it comes to the handtool side. Mostly go with chisels and scrapers but who knows... maybe this will inspire me.

  • Whatever the "rules" are that plane looks great! Nice restore job. ๐Ÿ‘
