« Part 11: Good Day in the Shop Part 12 of New Shop in the Raw series no next part

Today I broke down and clean up some of the cherry I purchased for Christine’s step stool. After seeing the Shaker stool posted here the other day, she said “I like that one”. So that’s what it will be. No arguments here. If she’s happy the world is a great place ;)

I’m going to try and do as much of this with just hand tools, as I can. I certainly made a lot of curly shavings getting things squared up. However, I think my hand planing skills still need work, but I think I’m off to a decent start. I used a #5 1/2 and #4 1/2 intermittently to flatten and square and a #3 to smooth. I have a Stanley 12 1/2 cabinet scraper with a new Hock iron. I think I’ll use that to polish the boards before final dimensioning.

Some pics to get things going.
