    Thanks Paul – some great topics here. Particularly like the idea of looking at restoration and fall-front designs. Can I cast another vote for a piece on moulding planes please? I think you mentioned you had something in the pipeline a while back.

    Paul I look forward to your Blog and video’s, I have learned so much from you and quite frankly hooked on Woodworking Master Classes. You are a great teacher and easy to follow and your NO nonsense approach goes with out saying. Wish I had know about you 25 – 30 years ago.

    I love to sharpen saws now. I am always looking for old saws to rework. It has become a hobby for me. I have found so many great saws for under $10.00. I have quite a collection now. Thanks for teaching me Paul.
