    Better get a video posted Freddy, this thing is going off the rails. At this point we would take a video tour of your shop. :)

    Gee the man is doing you/us a favor by sharing his hard earned knowledge. He has paying work to get done.
    I say get off his back. And... since Freddy is too kind, I'll say it....-You will get it when you get it.:p

    Can't we all get along.

    Thanks Freddy,

    Jim

    Not to speak for others, but I don't think any of us are intending to pressure Freddy into RUSHing (Freddy will get that) his builds? I think Freddy knows me well enough (if only through TMLPF) that that's not my intention. Besides, even if it was, does anyone think he'd really do that? Even though I'm not a woodworker and would never consider trying something like this, I find this extremely fascinating and am awaiting his next video, whether that's today, or a year from today with bated breath.

    I agree with jkes01, how this isn't a "Sticky" is beyond me? This is likely the best Thread ever on TMLPF.

    Yes, I think everyone is just having a little fun here and being silly.

    Here's where it's at. Forthcoming video outlines the process to get this far.

    Awesome! Love the round rasp, I like the Shinto but I'm going to have to try that one for the heel.

    Outstanding video Freddy! I am glad you allowed it to remain as one video. Nothing short of a Master class in neck building. Thank you!

    You make it seem a bit less daunting than some of us feel when approaching our maiden neck build. Thanks for sharing your skills.

    Times 10, especially the comment about "truly the master with a plane" as he uses and maintains them so deftly and adeptly, as well as his scrapers! His skill and experience certainly makes it all look so much easier than it actually is!:cheers2:

    Thanks For Your Efforts Freddy!
