Fourth Day of Christmas

four calling birds?

four small wood working planes
my oldest block plane with its very basic repair.

   No wood shop is complete without at least one block plane.  I have two, my very old one, that fell on the floor and broke and a newer one.  They are both Stanley  planes, the old one is set for a courser cut and the newer one set for a whisker thin cut.  I also have two small planes, one is a Rabot Kid 24 and the smallest is a "little Victor".  Each of the planes has a place and a purpose, but all of these planes are for fine fitting, not heavy stock removing.

  These small planes, like chisels are work horses that every shop needs to have and to have kept very sharp.
