  English Boxwood Jointer - part 1 1 of 27  

I don't recall ever seeing a solid English boxwood jointer. You simply don't find dry boxwood that big!



Working with Huw Crompton of this parish we sought a suitable log that was dry but had not checked on the Northern side as is the norm because of reinforcing branches - a rare combination.

Using a variety of fine edges I worked this rough log into sublime block. Now to let it settle while I think on the design. A razee is almost a given but I need to think on the iron first as always with planemaking.

Here is our find.

Planing a reference edge.

Smoothing all edges.


Smoothing with scraper and highlighting figure with denatured spirit.
