    That is absolutely wonderful. Perhaps I’ll have to get some of those hand tool things you speak of. Well done, Marilyn.

      Thank you sir! Love having you as a fan. Watch out for the hand tool worm hole. It’s guaranteed to empty your wallet.

        I just received a LN tongue & groove plane. Will use to create back slats of my current book cabinet project. Slippery slope where we come. Perhaps I should cinch down my helmet, it could be a bumpy ride.

      So cool! I love using that plane. You’re in trouble now!

  3. Gorgeous! The whole thing is a work of art.

  4. So nice! I love the beading. Looks like I will be putting a beading plane on my list of things to buy from Lee Valley Tools.

      Thank you all for your kind comments. This was a very fun small project! I’ve really enjoyed my plow plane and all the cool things it can do.

  5. Looks great Marilyn. Quick question: do you find it easy to switch from the plow to beading attachments? Or is it a bit of pain?

    Thanks,
    Shawn

      Nope, easy peasie. It’s just like putting in a plow blade for cutting a groove. I haven’t yet used the extra wide blade and configuration .. so not sure how easy that is.
