I've been frustrated, I haven't been able to get started on my shop, workbench build or even sharpening my planes/chisels. Between honey-do stuff (that's not yet complete), cold weather, fixing burst plumbing (this weekend), moving to the property (next week) and then our son getting married on the property the week after, I haven't even started working on the stuff that I want to do. Hopefully, in about 3 weeks I'll be able to start.

I don't know why, but I want a jointers or jack (#7 or #6) plane. I'm sure that I don't need one, but I want one. I suspect it's going to be a pain to find a decent metal one for a reasonable price (for something that I don't really need) so I've been thinking I can probably find an inexpensive old wooden plane. Then, how hard could it be to "tune-up?"
