I spent the day greatly appreciating the work that people like Larry Williams & Don McConnell, Matt Bickford, Caleb James, Phil Edwards, and a host of others do every day to make these wonderful tools available to us. Anyone who thinks that today’s premium hand planes are over priced should try building one for themselves. After the work I put in today, I think these guys are charging just enough to get by, and probably should be charging more. This stuff ain’t easy folks. But it is fun!
