Hello LJ’ers. Just recently joined after lurking for awhile and reading some of the forums such as this one. I recently retired and long story short-the urge to start with woodworking (which was germinating for quite awhile previously) finally rooted hard and before you know it-the slippery slope of old hand planes-hit me and I now have bought and cleaned up a few in the last month or so:

I will try and post the before and afters as I progress down this slope, and have greatly enjoyed everything I have learned from all of you through your posts in various forums.

More to follow soon
