I do so enjoy a hand plane! The connection to the work is so much more fulfilling than power tools. Cant quite explain the feeling of removing material in long smooth shavings.

Can’t agree more Dave. When I first started woodworking it was all about the machines and the end product, but now it is more about the process than the result. I guess we just have to take the journey to get from power tools to hand tools. I still love my power tools for doing the hard part, but it is the handwork that is the most fun.
