Day two vegas and Im thinking wood shop.


Day two in Vegas.  I have have a delay and have some time so I am at the Hida tool site looking at hand planes to buy.
I do have a couple already, but need a scraper plane.  I have scoured the daikudojo site for information too.  It is a pretty nice resource for all the japanese tools and such.  I found a nice link to a museum in japan for hand tools.  Takenaka Carpentry Tools Museum has some nice photos and a bit of history, although I suppose one needs a better knowledge of the Japanese language to really get the most from the site.
I bought a few items from Hida weeks ago and am happy with what I have received and they go WAY above in the quality of shipping.  It is nice to have that for sure.
