|The new waterstone|
Speaking of purchases, I just had one of my own delivered just last Friday. I first heard of Lie-Nielsen on the DIY Network show Cool Tools, where they showed the LN No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane being used by the expert hands of Deneb Puchalski, whom I would eventually meet in person. I had not yet experienced the joy of handplaning, but this was the tool that made me want to try it. Five or six years later and I was finally able to own the tool that opened me up to the world of hand tool woodworking, and it is even better than I expected.
|I will use the 62 mainly as a dedicated shooting board plane, and I made a new shooting board for just that job. Perfectly square every time, and effortless to use!|
I also needed a shoulder plane, and the LN Large Shoulder Plane really had an appeal that set it apart from other shoulder planes like Veritas and Clifton. It works just as you would expect a Lie-Nielsen tools to perform, and is a great addition to my tool chest.
