Topic tags/keywords: biplane handplane wings job fun therapy

It amazes me sometimes that I actually get paid to do this. Building wings for biplanes is very different woodworking than I do at home but there are moments of extreme satisfaction. This is one of my favorites. Using a finely tuned hand plane…ahhhhhh!

What’s you folks’ favorite part of the woodworking process?

My favorite part is feeling the wood after all the sanding is complete.

Planning the design and construction. The actual construction less so… never comes together as fast as my ideas…lol.

I Do like hand plane work. Quite nice.

Hate sanding and finishing.
