slow progress

It’s been a frustrating few days in the workshop. I needed to sharpen the blades on my Wadkin planer/thicknesser. If anyone has attempted this before they’ll understand how fiddly it can be to re-fit them. Add to this the fact that the in-feed table (the surface on the right of the yellow bridge guard) became wobbly. It has to be perfectly parallel with the out-feed table (the surface on the left) to function correctly. Anyway, all is ok now, and I’ve learnt a lot about how the machine works.

Here’s a snap of a fielded panel for the oak settle. I cut the bevel on the spindle moulder. The cutter head was set to a bevel of about 10 degrees. My next job is to make the frames that these panels will sit in. Stay tuned…
