These are some of the tools I am using...
I hand made the shaping block with some foam glued to it, a shaping paddle, caliper, a poormans shaping square made out of left over plexi glass and a shaping pad made out of an Oracle knee pad. And the usual tools I purchased from the store.
Don't know why Oracle was giving out knee pads for a promotional pieces!?!? I guess us techie nerds are always down on their knees fixing people's computers.
Oh yah, not shown here is the planer I purchased. I actually went with the cheapo Bosch 3365 3-1/4" Planer with only one blade. Actually got a deal from Home Depot because the box was all beat up. Hopefully it works!
