Making a Video Series - Making a Double Iron Plan

I've started making a series of videos, that I think are a comprehensive view of making a double iron plane (admittedly boring and fairly long, but should be interesting if someone actually wants to make a plane).

It's no secret that I have a fascination with these, and I've had one for a while and we hashed out the details some on another forum. I made a post when I was making my first couple, but the work was a bit substandard.

It'll probably take me a couple of weeks to get this plane finished, and the videos will be uploaded as I move along.

I had a little bit of a hitch in my giddyup on this idea, because a few months after I put the instructional on SMC in text, someone released a for-pay video from PWW on 18th century planes. These are not that style, and I haven't seen that video, anyway, nor have I read any books on the subject (there was a WPINCA book that had some pictures about planemaking - brief and incomplete, I guess I did read those, but what they describe is not how I lay out or build planes. These compositions are of my own intellectual property with my own thoughts. I don't intend them to be interesting, i intend them to be instructive/archival for anyone who gets a burr up their rear and suddenly decides they want to build a plane, and doesn't want to build three or four just to get the first decent one. If someone isn't interested in building a plane, I'm pretty sure they'll be too boring and detailed with the exception of making and fitting a wedge later, which is useful to know just to recondition old planes.

So, they're here. If five people learn to build their own plane from these videos over the next decade, that'll be good enough for me. I have low aspirations!
