Winter Smoother - Friday

Friday was a day to get as much done as possible. I had to leave for the airport at 4pm, and I was still running the mill at 3:30. With Ron's help I managed to get the body of the plane entirely assembled by the time I left. The wood components got roughed out, and still need to be finished. Ron had made the lever cap the week before I arrived, and ground the iron as well. He perfectly anticipated what I could accomplish during my time at Brese Plane, including loosing half a day from the first pair of botched sides. Thank you Ron!

I hope to get some free time in the coming weeks to finish shaping the tote and knob, and I plan to take some video of that as well.


  1. This has been a phenomenal series of videos - thanks!

  2. And we welcomed Jameel back to Iowa with snow.

    Thank you gentlemen for taking the time to let us experience the week vicariously.

  3. It was an enjoyable week, especially BBQ Thursday. I'm glad you enjoyed the videos Jameel put together. Having Jameel in the shop with me is great fun.


  4. Ron & Jameel,

    I cannot remember when I have enjoyed watching any videos as much as I have these. Really well done and fun as well. This answer brought to you by someone wishing for pork. :o Fred
