New Post

I have always wanted to own/use drawknifea drawknife.  The posts we planed with Conrad last week had a good amount of bark on some edges and so I asked my Grandpa if he knew where I might find a drawknife to purchase in St. Cloud, MN.  He said he didn’t think I’d find one in town, but he had one that I could borrow (pictured at left).  He said that it was older than I was, and made anneof real steel, so I wouldn’t be able to break it.  He added, now-a-days, people think they can call something steel if it merely sat on the postshelf next to some steel…

The drawknife worked great and I got both posts cleaned up and then sanded them with a belt sander.  On Saturday my Grandpa helped me install it and it looks BEAUTIFUL.
