The quest for a neat and tidy shop… who am I kidding? The quest for controlled chaos, I should say – in the shop involves figuring out how to store different tools. My two planing stops needs to be easy to grab and to put away. I am plan(n)ing to hang them on the wall.
Flailing a plane about can be very rewarding or make the piece of wood look more like a cat’s scratch board. It comes down to whether the thing stays in place or not. Hence a planing stop. I bought one from Veritas, and tested if it wood stop the would. Or.. something.
