A beautiful #woodshavingwednesday morning! Turn on the sound. You'll enjoy it. I've been practicing quite a bit of machine driven joinery and designing my next build on my computer, so I've been itching to make some whispy shavings. I took my No. 6, sharpened the blade and went to town on a rough cut Cherry board. Two minutes and a pile of shavings later I've got a flat board. You can hear the difference between the shavings from the rough board to a flattened board. Even though I have a jointer, I find this rewarding. Will I be milling all my stock by hand? No! But for those smaller pieces...yeah, sure.
