Subject:
Wooden Planes

Ron Harper
I am finding that I more and more gravitate to woodies. I know David is out there and is enthusiastic about it. Are there others out there who have made this switch? Share your experience with us please. I still find my 604 my most used tool in my shop,but more and more I use a wooden scrub, jack, and joiners. I am a little grey and long in the tooth to make such a switch,but I get so much more feedback from wooden planes.

I really do not need any more planes, but i have a 1/4 in thick iron that I am dying to build into a krenov smoother. Have some bizarre curly maple for tge body.
