You’ve got to start somewhere

I was going through old photos and stumbled upon this picture of my first handplane in “as found” condition. I bought it for $15 at an antiques store, cleaned it up and the rest is history.


I guess you can start from anywhere.

    Everybody starts at the same spot, not knowing anything. It’s all downhill from there.

    My first hand plane was a vintage Stanley No. 4. Looks to be about the same vintage. I actually dropped it and cracked the mouth but I still have it!
