Perhaps it’s the cold weather but lately I have wanted nothing more than an afternoon nap every day.
A wood plane is a very simple tool. In exchange for a little care and effort it allows you to remove a very small amount of timber on each pass, leaving a smooth even finish.
Repeated passes are required to achieve the result. There are no shortcuts with hand tools, just the satisfaction derived from making that is missing when using an electric plane.
Perhaps there is a metaphor in there somewhere for life and changing it?
