Ok, so I come back from Okoumefest the eager little beaver and start gnawing on wood. Well, not exactly gnawing but close to it.
I took the two sheets, marked 2" back for the scarf, stepped them together so I could plane them at the same time, clamped them to a table and started whittling away.
I now have corners that are approaching paper thin, but still need to take a little off of the middle. I’m starting to lose some material at the corners – see photos.
How can I do this better on the next pair if sheets? I few things I think I have done incorrectly:
- In my haste I started w/ the new plane without sharpening it. I now have an official CLC stone to hone on.
- I had the edges overhanging the table – I may wish to put them on the table edge or on a sacrificial plank to keep things stiffer.
- Not every swipe with the plane goes the full width of the board, should I be trying for this?
Thanks for any advice.
