Ding on my Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane - 5 replies

I was wiping down my Veritas plane after a quick little planing task. I had a small piece of plywood sitting on a metal table with the plane on top of the board as I wiped it down.

First attempt - Thru Mortise (I stink at it) - 7 replies

I attacked it from both sides, which is hard to screw up on 3/4” stock. The problem came when cleaning up the mortise with a bevel chisel. ...
