Matt has been playing with his new Veritas Skew Plane and Plow Plane. He also finally got around to building a sharpening station. And Matt has made a promise to cut a set of dovetails everyday, until he can give Frank Klausz a run for his money.

Regarding the question of fuzzy pine…. In Charles Niel’s video on sanding he mentions that one could coat the pine with shellac to harden the surface before sanding.

Matt,

I agree…aspen is the worst wood I’ve worked with with regards to fuzz. Sanding only seems to exacerbate the problem unless you use a very fine grit. I found it’s better the put at least one coat of the intended final finish on before doing the final sanding to remove raised fibers. Like you said…it’s almost like string cheese.
