Well just last night I got the last plane body dovetailed together for the set of four low slung smoothers. They don't look like much yet, but here are a couple of pictures.

Of course it is slow going because I only have Saturday's to dedicate to plane making. The main thing is that I have been enjoying every second of it. I take plane making very seriously, however I do not want it to feel like a second job. I am also comfortable with the fact that I will only be producing a small quantity of planes each year.

Well, Christmas is here already and I am looking forward to a couple of days of R&R with family and friends. I have been living in Australia for five years now and I still find it strange to be celebrating Christmas in the middle of summer.
