I'm a card-carrying power tool junkie. Whew! They say that admitting it is the first step, and that wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.
I remember vividly calling my dad on Christmas day in '85 to tell him that I received my first cordless screwdriver as a gift from my bride, and following a few seconds of silence he said: "Son... all of my screwdrivers are cordless."
Even with my 15+ router obsession I still have a place in my heart (and shop) for lots of "cordless" hand tools, just like my dad. Chisels, scrapers, Japanese and Western hand saws and lay-out tools are always close at hand, but the hand tools that I love to reach for most of all are my hand planes.
Now don't get me wrong; I don't have a collection that anyone would envy, but what I have I use.
The purpose of this blog is to provide folks like me with a little useful info about planes and to connect those who are searching for decent planes with, well... decent planes.
