Tool of the Month had been a bit forgotten this year but here’s a short new entry!
Back in September I treated myself to a new Lie Nielsen number 8 jointer plane. This is the largest commercially made hand plane available, at 2foot long it’s huge!
I decided to pick one up after flattening my recently built Roubo workbench, my no 7 handled it fine but the extra length and mass of the no 8 should make the process a little faster next time, plus the sole is long enough for me to us it as a straight edge to check progress whilst flattening, rather than stopping and messing around with a straight edge.
Looking forward to using this on my next Roubo workbench build due to start in November/December (more on this soon) 😃
For more about jointer planes have a look at my previous blog post about the no7 jointer plane!
