Don't worry about the time, it is not the issue, the point is to do the job as well as possible.
It took me 296 hours to build my first and afterwords I'm very happy I did not take any short cuts but took the the time that was needed.
When scraping hardwoods my thumbs (the joints) have started to hurt so much that I allowed me the luxury of buying Veritas scraper plane to finish the sides and the back after planing with toothed blade but a scraper holder will do the job too.
I do need reminding that it’s fine if I take my time. Thanks for that. I’ll look into that scraper plane. I also need to get a toothed blade for my planes. Do you buy them or make them?
Also, I’ve left the sides in there original lmi dimensions. Should I get them closer to needed width and length before bending? This is something I might have considered doing before thicknessing to save time and energy.
