In addition to the recent series of blog posts that I did on restoring an in-cannel gouge, I also made a video of the process.
The final step in putting our vintage in-cannel gouge back to work is to re-grind and hone the bevel and back of the cutting edge.
On today’s show, I discuss setting up a cabinet scraper, sapwood vs. heartwood, attaching handles to thin case sides, slop in bench plane adjusters, and learning from poor furniture designs.
I’m going to be restoring a 19th century in-cannel gouge to working order. So the first step is obviously to obtain a gouge.
I find these tools extremely useful in the work that I do and I think it’s really unfortunate that more people don’t use them.
