Trying my hand with a trying plane

This is me at the Woodworking in America conference in the Marketplace area.  I'm at the booth for  The board I'm planing is eight feet long and about an inch wide.  I did a practice run, then fellow blogger Keri Hultman from The Village Carpenter did the excellent video of the real thing.  The shaving that came out was translucent and was the full width of the board.  An amazing plane.  Believe me, the plane did the work on this -- not me.  Thanks, Keri!

That guy in the flannel shirt behind you looks familiar. Oh yeah, it's me. I remember seeing you doing this and was amazed at the shaving. Beautiful tools eh?
