    Enjoy your cold one!

  2. Dan Dan on April 16, 2023 at 9:14 am

    Does the scratchy bottom bug you at all?

  3. Don's Woodies on April 16, 2023 at 9:14 am

    Damn you. I just ordered the HP8. No, not the fancy gold one. 🙂 I have no use for another block plane, but I can use it to shave off precise slivers of ham for custom sandwiches. I do love quality tools, and that one is just too cute to pass up. (oh, and I do make small items to precise dimensions, so it will actually come in handy.)

  4. Torch MD on April 16, 2023 at 9:15 am

    “I”m not so sure I can afford to save so much on lumber!” I haven’t laughed that much in a while. That was awesome.

  5. DYNAMIX 1862 on April 16, 2023 at 9:16 am

    "Could be there for peeing, you don’t know". Best line of 2021, hands down.

  6. Matt Bach on April 16, 2023 at 9:19 am

    I’ve been watching your videos for years now and always love them, thank you James. I now hate your stupid golden plane (just jelous); definitely send the old basement version to @heystarfish100. How about a raffle from Bridgecitytools for all your loyal minion subscribers for one of those amazing gold versions? Founders IPA is delicious.

  7. Jay Schmid on April 16, 2023 at 9:19 am

    I truly enjoy and learn a lot from you. Thanks

  8. CB Belanger on April 16, 2023 at 9:19 am

    I recently picked up the mini plane from Bridge City and am blown away by the quality. It sits on the bench and is within arms reach and has become my favorite plane.

  9. David Shirk on April 16, 2023 at 9:22 am

    I love looking at your videos. You are generally the first place I look to, to get advice about woodworking.
    I have to say though, that plane looks incredibly uncomfortable to use.

  10. Ios 6 on April 16, 2023 at 9:23 am

  11. Matthew Finch on April 16, 2023 at 9:23 am

    Stumpy! I’d love to get your take on the ShopSmith multi-function shop equipment!

  12. doublestrike photo on April 16, 2023 at 9:24 am

    The hidden mouse reveal was the biggest shock for an avid viewer of the channel. 😧

  13. robin alexander on April 16, 2023 at 9:25 am

    I don’t care what your drinking when you are making a video, if your relaxed chilling out having a good time all good. Maybe you could talk about the drink your drinking, just a thought. You might get a new sponsor. Your hands shake no problem mind shake too 40 odd years. My kids have got the problem to. cheers from Tasmania

  14. Dennis Doherty on April 16, 2023 at 9:25 am

    Love Founders. Like you, the only power tool I operate after opening the first ‘shop beer’ is the vacuum. Haters gonna hate. Love the vlog. Thanks

  15. Jonathon Solway on April 16, 2023 at 9:26 am

    Cheers James 🍻👍

  16. Daniel Pittman on April 16, 2023 at 9:27 am

    I just tried cross-country skiing for the first time. We moved to Colorado from Texas four years ago, and we’re just twenty minutes from Black Canyon National Park. In the winter they close the road just past the visitor’s center and groom it for skiing and snowshoeing. The wife and I had a blast on our borrowed and rented gear. Once all the ski equipment goes on sale in the spring we’re buying our own gear!

  17. Keith Holdsworth on April 16, 2023 at 9:28 am

    The humour in this was brill, those lovely sly digs just brilliant…..I too have a degenerative brain disease…..so I find holes in the floor as I stumble etc (no hole…just my excuse) but like you…I ain’t quit doing what I love…keep it up n stay positive (just don’t test positive!)

  18. Michael Gray on April 16, 2023 at 9:28 am

    Here in Australia we have a saying … “That’s goin’ straight to the pool room!” from an old movie called The Castle. When we get something really cool like a gold plane it goes straight to the pool room so no one can touch it or use it.

  19. Chris Thornborrow on April 16, 2023 at 9:31 am

    1. Its -9 outside so I do as little as possible at the moment.
    2. Aren’t Bridge City and Harvey in the same group now? Excellence all round – saving for my harvey bandsaw but might get a block plane just to encourage myself.
    3. Moustache Mike in Spandex. Should at least have been a chapter name of the vlog.
    4. New journal is very nice… You are right James about reading in the lazy boy whilst the Tv is on.

  20. K S on April 16, 2023 at 9:31 am

    Gold, for its weight. Adapt to whatever the weather – just get outside, esp. when the sun shines. Hockey, football whatever, never supported a team. Just enjoy a good sporting game. I’d like your opinion / advice and encouragement for a friend. I have a friend who enjoys hand painting (art) and complains of issues with her hands and the results it has on her work. Do you have any words of wisdom?

  21. Noah Smielewski on April 16, 2023 at 9:33 am

    Lol I was thinking that was a Founders Sessions and low and behold 🙂

  22. rvburbank1 on April 16, 2023 at 9:33 am

    And less than a month later we all froze in the coldest winter in over 10 years

  23. p24t on April 16, 2023 at 9:33 am

    mmm.. Vernors…

  24. Terri Stroh on April 16, 2023 at 9:34 am

    I come here to learn some woodworking things and listen to some yapping. I don’t care what’s in the can or that the koozie has a Red Wings logo. Keep on keeping on, James

  25. Jim Bo on April 16, 2023 at 9:36 am

    No backlash. Wow just like my Stanleys 😀
    I never understood why if you set up your tooling to produce whopping backlash, you can’t set it up to produce minimal backlash.

  26. SAW IT on April 16, 2023 at 9:38 am

    You are solid Gold Stumpy. Me personally… I only drink XXXX Gold.

  27. Franco Nardelli on April 16, 2023 at 9:43 am

    They will probably believe you, and try to make a run for it!

  28. Bryan Born on April 16, 2023 at 9:43 am

    Hello neighbor! Hail from Ortonville MI. You asked: The February blues got us to purchase Rad Step thru E-bikes. It’ll extend our range from the teens to the thirty’s (miles, that is). Maybe we’ll stop by the shop as we rail trail by. With 5” wheels and fenders we’re hoping to get a jump on spring.
    Talking about sketchy wood… 9 years ago a favorite sugar maple withered on our property. Had it cut down into 5’ logs. Turns out it was heavily spalted. I planked them into 5/4 on my 14” Grizzly after buying a riser kit and dried it in my diy dryer (attic above garage). Well, this winter I got a set of plans and made an entertainment center. Posted it on lumberjocks/FraidKnot. Your videos are an inspiration, and guide me to greater shop success. Is I’ll head to your plans section to support you more! Stay well.

  29. Barry Davies on April 16, 2023 at 9:44 am

    You went out!😱 I’ve forgotten what outside looks like. 😭

  30. Nick on April 16, 2023 at 9:48 am

    Go Wings!

  31. Phil a Andrew on April 16, 2023 at 9:48 am

    Thanks Stumpy…. I just found a supplier here in Australia and bought the HP-8… Like I needed another small plane… Of course I do! 🙂

  32. C.A. G. on April 16, 2023 at 9:50 am

    Ah, Founders Beer! Ever had the Canadian Breakfast Stout?? That one was awesome.
    I did notice the shaking every once in a while, just thought it was camera shyness 😄Sad to hear it comes from a disease. Hope it won’t affect your woodworking skills too much in a long long time!

  33. Paul David the Hebrew on April 16, 2023 at 9:54 am

    Great vlog!

    I live in San Diego, on those snowy winter days in Michigan, we go to the beach!

  36. Dana Smith on April 16, 2023 at 9:56 am

    I liked this video but can’t get the opening scenes out of my head. Standing directly behind the blade, no upper saw guard, no riving knife. Is there something different about that scene that caused you to skip all your normal safety precautions?

  37. Dave Wilco on April 16, 2023 at 9:56 am

    (From UK) Sometimes I am considered a troll but in honesty, I just can not keep my mouth shut when I see people talking crap. So I speak up and critique or criticize or even call them tossers when the moment calls for it. I watched a guy the other day and I am not kidding he has issues and developing mental problems that are obvious to a holder of common sense, not to mention the wife worked in the field for 40 years. At that point I backed off and decided to mind my own business with him the more I watched his unusual decisions playing out. I had not actually engaged with him at this point but god it was building up in me. I have always wondered about the can on the table, never thought god is he drinking as that is your business and I know full well you are one of the most sensible woodworkers on the internet and in my top 3. It’s you, Cosman and Paul Sellers. Been watching you for years. I never ever have anything to critique you about, ever. That’s probably why you don’t see me as a troll. I just watch and enjoy. thank you for that. I had noticed the shaking. I hope you get to do what you do for many years to come. the wife has said on many occasions, "Who are you watching, Stumpy?" good luck dude, have a cold one YOU have earned it!

  38. Broomfield Eric on April 16, 2023 at 9:56 am

    Just got the regular model. They are on sale right now. All I can say is wow. I am a luthier and woodworker. I will be using it daily.

  39. Ed Ehrenwlad on April 16, 2023 at 9:57 am

    do you sharpen the BCT plane blades with your TOrmek? thanks

  40. Chris Fab on April 16, 2023 at 9:59 am

    "for peeing" made my day! Great response to all the ……….

  43. William Lindsey on April 16, 2023 at 10:02 am

    LOL My mother-in-law is a Red Wings Fan and I’m a Sharks fan. I love to tell her "Sharks love their Wings Red."

  44. david fletcher on April 16, 2023 at 10:03 am

    Whatever commenters say, keep doing you my YouTube friend. Your shop, your channel. Hater’s gonna hate. Likely because they are jealous. Just keep up the videos, vlogs and just plain and concise content for the rest of us. We appreciate it. Even when some may not.

  45. David Barr on April 16, 2023 at 10:03 am

    Hi James. Love your channel, have learned so much. Also, love me some Vernors, the best ginger ale made. Regarding "bargins": I am a retired A&P, and we have a saying; the bitter taste of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of low price. Incidentally, my first job out of tech school was at Willow Run airport in Ypsilanti. Loved Michiganders, just couldn’t handle the winters (I’m not a cold weather person).

  46. Torch MD on April 16, 2023 at 10:03 am

    BWAHAHAHA, peeing in the can! Stop, I’m going to pee!

  47. Jeffrey Gilbert on April 16, 2023 at 10:05 am

    I thought a magician never reveals his tricks? This disappearing mouse act is going into my repertoire!

  48. Lesley Ghost Dragon on April 16, 2023 at 10:06 am

    Lol "You don’t know." Lol
    If it is a tiny urinal, how can it be a "cold one"?
    Stay frosty, Mr. Nubs. Bests xo

  49. Andrew Pinson on April 16, 2023 at 10:08 am

    Isn’t there something somewhere warning about coveting thy neighbors tools. I am sure I saw it.

  50. Doug Manter on April 16, 2023 at 10:09 am

    Sorry, in the "Redwings suck!" Camp. Denver native. Go Avs!
