If you have been looking wistfully at my planes but haven’t yet placed an order, might I recommend asking Santa (or his helpers) to bring you one on Christmas day? Orders placed before October 15th will have guaranteed delivery for Christmas, so be sure to put a Scott Meek Woodworks plane at the top of your list right away.
I also wanted to let everyone know that I will be at Woodworking In America in Cincinnati, November 2-4. I will have many of my planes there for you all to check out and use. I have to warn you though, if you are on the fence about purchasing one, it will be much harder to put off once you’ve taken a couple of beautiful shavings with one.
I am also offering a “hand delivered” option for anyone that will be at WIA and would like to place an order before September 30. Shipping costs would be waved and you will be able to pick up your plane from me at the show. I’ll even be able to give you some tips right then and there on using your new wood-bodied plane! If you would like to take advantage of this, head on over to the Available Tools page and place your deposit. In my order confirmation email, I will be sure to ask you if you would like to receive your plane at WIA and we can work out the details that way.
