Pie Safe Refinish- need some help identifying this wood. - 20 replies

I usually turn away away any and all refinishing jobs. But this pie safe has a lot of sentimental value to some friends…so I couldn’t turn it down. It’s laying in it side because the the tiny rear leg gave out. Shocker. I will have to rework those rear legs. It was a high school shop project in the 80’s. But it is all...

A2 Plane Blades- Am I the only one who doesn't like 'em? - 11 replies

Surely I’m not. I’ve wrestled with a some A2 blades, both Hock and Veritas, I just don’t like them. Difficult to sharpen. Don’t get as sharp. Tend to chip and get toothy. Not crazy about the square top on the Hock, but their O2 blades seem to give me the best results. Even better than Veritas O2. Just curious if I was the...
