    Default Shavings!!

    Shane, you need to post another pic, with a shaving or two (preferably actually made by your plane ), in order to comply with "the rules". Hate to see you disqualified for a simple slip of memory....

    If you can't edit your post to include said picture, just put it in a separate post & I'll add it to your "done" post so it doesn't get missed in the final judging orgy....
    Cheers,
    Ian

    Well the ďBodyĒ is done, from the beginning ,this was a steep ,but much enjoyable learning curve, like many here, my skills were pushed to nearly breaking point at times.
    Iíve had moments of ya look at that, too moments of Bloody.........



    So ,the Body(Jack plane) with a sole of 01 Tool steel, sides in Brass held together in unison for ever now by Dovetails.
    Support a Bed Angle of 45 degrees, with a bevel down Blade of 01 Tool steel(5 mm Thick).


    The wood work, is Red Gum Burl , and has been Challenging to use.
    I was initially going to use some Forest Red Gum, that Mr Bushmiller kindly sent me ,but changed my mind late in the piece.
    Not sure if that was wise or not.
    But ,has come up well in the end with its coat of Acrylic Clear.
    The front bun and rear tote also has Metal employed in there construction, in an attempt to mimic the Main bodyís use of Metal.


    This project overall has been a fantastically fun, but the most fun has been the support Iíve gained from this, through watching the other challenges builds.
    Note point the Body has a few blemishes [emoji6] now.





    Cheers Matt.

    Thanks Ian, unfortunately the only photo I took of it making a shaving was when it was still in its refinement days. But at least it cut.

    I think the challenge does not close off until Midnight tonight AEST.

    Still 14 hours and a few minutes to go.
    I don't want to go through things that don't kill me but will make me stronger any more.

    I have just been reading back over the threads of the competition this morning and I have noted that there is a 200 word limit for the post presenting the plane for judging.

    Further investigation revealed that quite a few write-ups exceed the 200-word limit. I also noted that I am possibly the worst offender. (But in my defence I had two planes to write about. )

    Question is - Will exceeding the 200-word limit count against the entry? I note that IanW has pointed out a discrepancy in an entry and assisted the participant to correct it. I am not sure if means that all other submitted entries have been reviewed and accepted "as is" or if other entries might be penalized during judging for not meeting certain criteria such as word count.

    If one of the esteemed judges or organizers with sufficient powers to make a decision sees this post in time can they please make a ruling? Preferably in time for any affected participants to make a correction.

    Personally I don't have problem with the number of words - it was originally only intended to be a guideline. I am sure that Ian and his team will err on the side of commonsence, but it is their call.

    That's a fantastic looking plane Matt, very regal looking with that front knob. Congratulations on a great job.

    I think we'll honour that rule in the breach rather than the observance, Doug. TBH, I'd forgotten what the word limit was, & in any case, I got so used to marking exam questions where they were supposed to answer "in 100 words or fewer..", and rabbited on over several pages, that I would probably not have noticed your indiscretion.

    In many cases the students were just spinning more rope to hang themselves by - let's hope it doesn't apply in your case......

    Thank goodness, I just looked at my finished post, and I think I may have gone over by a few words

    Default Challenge closed

    OK, the challenge has galloped to the final post. The judges are now deliberating and I would hope we will be able to announce a winner in a day or so & not keep you al in suspense for longer than absolutely necessary.

    There are14 'challengees' eligible to go in the draw for the layout tools, & that will be done very soon but I'll hold off announcing the winner 'til we have the other part sorted.

    So hold your collective breath.......
