Been away for some sun lately.
Good to get away.
I wonder why I do all this when I get back, I mean we really are a bunch of nerds us woodworkers sometimes. Worried about our tools and wood. Lacking in perspective, an issue of scale as Will Self would say.
So to get back into the swing of things I thought I would do some more plane restoration! The Japanese Kanna just finished (lovely sub 0.1mm shavings floating from it today) got me in the mood.
Lignum Vitae Bowling ball offcuts here, I knew they would come in handy. I have 4 of these 'breast' shaped pieces which were left over from my last carving mallet project. Lovely wood - I imagine all the cracks resulting from the matches as the bashed into each other!
