  1. Matthew- you’re right, card scrapers can get hot but I’ve gotten used to it
    over the years. This is a fairly thick one so maybe that helps. I’ll have
    to check on that one-

    thanks for the comments and question.

  2. Ron,
    thanks for the kind comments.
    I am self taught in everything I do.
    That said, I have read many great books so to say, self-taught may be
    ; D

  3. Ron “Big Ron” Sanford

    thank you for the response please keep your films coming i have watched
    them all, and always look forward to the next, a channel of your caliber
    are very few and far between,by the way are your books available here in
    the states?all the best to you and yours

  4. +Ron Sanford
    for sure-my new book is available at The Taunton Store-
    or, you’ll find both at many online sources,, etc…
    if you’d like a signed copy, you can order directly from me through my
    website- only problem is shipping to the US is expensive.
    thanks again for the comments and interest.

  5. Do you see a disadvantage to using a #80 scraper plane?

  6. thanks tkarlmann. Not at all- if you own a #80 then by all means it could
    work. I don’t have one so I used what I had.
    all the best~

  7. Jack Hudler – thanks for the question and comments. I used a bevel-up plane
    with a 50 degree iron. Worked great! all the best~

  8. That work is B-I-N-G-O.

  9. Thanks for the interest- that song is called ‘Human by Trade’ and it’s
    available on iTunes here:

  13. I’m reminded of the Abe Lincoln adage: If I’ve got 6 hours to cut a tree
    down I’ll take 4 hours to sharpen the ax.

  14. Wow… All of a sudden I really appreciate my power tools!

  15. Nice challenge ….. maybe …….

    lubricate? Where buy this?

    can order it online right here:

  21. Hermano no se si entiendes español, pero mil,felicidades por tú trabajo,
    así se trabaja a la vieja escuela. Y esos 500 que no les gusta tu video
    mándalos a la mierda. Son unos envidiosos que están todo el día tirados en
    sus camas, que Dios te bendiga y te de mucha salud. Para que sigas con tu
    trabajo. Un abrazo desde Venezuela.
