    Thanks!

    Thank you both Seth and Derek for your suggestions.  I am having a difficult time with the planes I have now.  I’ve just tried them on waste pine and find them challenging.  I am looking forward to getting this new method all figured out soon.  Probably need to be tuned, but I have a 15 month old so I am building my toolbox slowly and have limited time to work.  I welcome any and all conversation in regard to hand tools.

    Don’t feel bad Andrew. I have not yet even been able to attempt to saw anything. I am not even sure which saw I should use for what. Before I began trying to learn about hand woodworking, I thought a saw was a saw was a saw (ha, how’s that for a unintentional palindrome?) Maybe you can help me on this one: finer tooth saws are for ripcutting while crosscutting required less teeth per inch?

    Thanks Seth

    Thank you for the info Seth. I was unable to log in for a little while for some reason. I bought my first plane today and am looking forward to trying it out. It is a 9″ Ace Hardware bench plane. I found it at a flea market still in the box. It looks like it was used once or twice. I’m sure it was probably not the best but it was only 15$ so I thought I might give it a try.

    Thank you!

    Thanks RJ!  Much appreciated.  I have already received the book and am looking forward to looking at it this weekend.  I have a 1 year old, so it is difficult to find time to work on any projects.  Any suggestions in this department?  Ha, ha.

    Thank you

    Thank you Bill.  I will investigate.  I’m sure I will have plenty of questions.

    Thanks for tips gentlemen. I will definitely be looking into those videos this evening. I am certain my wife thinks I’ve hit my head with my growing interest in hand tools.

    Andrew, I think I am about a year behind. I just bought my first handplane yesterday. Although, I am not sure how good of purchase it was, it appears to be in almost new condition and it was only 15$. Ace Hardware 9 inch smoothing plane. I am anxious to give it a go.
