I started a table for my mother I 'm hoping I can get it finished before Christmas!!
I'm sure it'll happen, I say with optimism ...
 There's was chunky redwood hiding under a tarp, this is what I'm using..
I cut off the sections , then set about them with my old wooden coffin plane..
 D Malloch and Sons Perth is the maker, a good Scottish plane...
This is an old family plane given to me earlier in the year.. Some posts about it if you care to trawl through... Anyhoo this little plane is just the tool to scrub off the shavings and clean up these slabs..... I also started the housings for the legs, using my old no 71 plane...
A good work out for the arms over the past couple of days...
Take a look and see... ;b
