« Part 6: April 8, 2015 - Victorian Desktop, Mod Zoo Poster Part 7 of What's in my Shop series Part 8: April 22, 2015 - Victorian Desktop and Stanley #2, #3c, and Fulton plane restorations »

This week, I got some work done mounting the hardware, and getting the back panel worked on for the Victorian Desktop.

I also got my Stanley #55 out and sharpened a few of the molding irons. I did a couple of practice pieces in each size. I used the large molding iron to cut some longer pieces that I plan to use for a poster frame.

Very cool, Mos! Love the work from the 55…looks tough to sharpen those irons, but now you’ve got a sweet tool that I bet sees more and more use. I must have one soon! :)

Thanks Terry. I finally got a coarse EZE-Lap plate, so maybe I’ll be more motivated to get the irons cleaned up. I wasn’t so into spending 15 minutes lapping the back of each iron flat on a medium stone lol Looking into diamond needle files, for sharpening the profiles, but may end up just getting a couple slip stones instead…

Thanks for the update Mos. I’ll echo Terry in not envying you having to sharpen those irons.

I like the intake panel you are mulling over.
