My exploits as a relative novice at fine wood working.

I finished Rehab
Well I finished rehabbing the old plane. I worked my way up through 400 grit on the bottom of the plane. And I spent a little time sharpening the blade. The plane works a lot better now. I think the blade could be sharper but it cut nicely on all the boards I tried it on.
I took some of the shavings, some sawdust, and some paraffin and made fire starters. I cut the large one into 8 wedges and 1 wedge worked very well for lighting a fire in the wood stove. This will be a good way to use the shavings and saw dust.
