More than just construction woods, part 2.

It was hard work to shave knotty pine. Thanks to those knots, the blade became easily dull so I had to sharpen again and again in order to be able to shave further. I used gouges, small Japanese compass planes, violin planes, files,... many tools I needed in order to form this round shape.
