"Received the dado plane today. Plane arrived in great shape and I had it cutting a test dado within a couple of minutes. I have to say this is one of the finest tools I have ever used. First off, having the left side of the plane as the fence side is genius for a right hander like myself. If you nail on a wood guide then you are pulling the plane into the guide as you push it along, this enables total control in keeping the sole running flat and true thereby insuring a flat bottom. I set for a 3/16 deep dado and checked it with a starrett double square, it was dead nuts all the way. No need for the router plane to insure flatness. The quality and accuracy of this plane has exceeded my expectations on all counts. I'm really pissed that I didn't buy this year's ago! Oh, the blade was fantastically sharp and true, you never see that in new planes unless you go to one of the custom infill makers and shell out mega bucks for a tool. My impression is that you are bringing to market handplanes that are made at exceptional levels of quality while hitting a price point that is reasonable and affordable by serious woodworkers, amazing! I don't particularly care for a computerized digital world but it did allow me to find reviews of your tools, your website and Derek Cohens website. After reading Derek's comments then I made the purchase. If only you were attending the Handworks event here in Iowa next month, that would be a treat. Suffice it to say I am extremely happy and impressed with the dado plane and I plan to purchase other tools from you in the future. Please extend my thanks to all who work with you to make these tools. Thanks Terry, Mark"
I wanted to send a link to our video of the chairs that I used you spokeshaves on throughout the process. They are fantastic tools! Thanks, Matthew http://youtu.be/xkHSAEUIGxk
