The joys of user made tools

Plane maker Raney Nelson made a post “New toys, new plane” where he is using a plane he made to make the ramp for a new plane. It is truly cool to use something you made in the process of making something new. Since I’m doing the same thing Raney is doing, I thought I’d show the photo Raney didn’t – the end grain shavings made when using a miter plane to trim the end of the ramp when fitting it (well, that and I think these are just cool). These full length shaving are about 3/16” x 1 1/4” Jatoba.
