Here we are then, as promised, a short video of how I use my plane iron

still disbelieving me about using a plane iron - so this should convince you for certain!
If you want to look at a higher quality video sample of

You will be doing this shortly. People say it's hard... but you can do it
as easy as me, the good old Larry way!
