Paul trueing up the edge
Paul, Yeung, and Laura got shavings .002" thick.
Max and Jon got shavings just under .003" thick.
Yeung got a 32" long shaving.
Paul and Jon were able to get a 20" long shaving.
Yeung got one shaving .0013" thick and 28" long.
Yeung was the only one who could get a good shaving using only one hand on the plane.
Note: This was our first ever planing challenge
We used a 3ft long piece of timber for the contest
There was a 6ft. length in reserve - maybe next year?
