Another guitar finished!

One more guitar done and another 2 on the build with a new order to start! Phew! Who said this was a hobby? Australian tonewoods are so good to work with. They produce great tone and are also beautiful to look at. Check out the latest build here.

Are old tools better than new ones?

Wait, that's not meant to sound rude. I have been given an old plane from a good friend. I thought, that's nice but I have a couple of planes. Then I used it. Wow, what a difference. It is a WW2 Norris Smoother plane (apparently they have a good reputation). The steel in the blade is such good quality and the test run I gave it was impressive. It shaved off a hair width of timber right across the blade with no effort. They really did make them better than the new cheap planes from the large un-named hardware chain that rhymes with Runnings.
